Olympus patent discloses a “Hasselblad” alike camera.

Share


The latest Olympus patent found by Egami (Click here) describes a new Vari-angle LCD screen. But what’s really intriguing is the medium Format design of the camera body. In some way it reminds me the leaked Samsung medium format camera. And seeing that there are rumors that Olympus may will work closer with Samsung this starts to look more than just a casual pattern. Below you can see the leaked Samsung image I posted months ago on MirrorlessRumors (Click here):

That’s just my speculation for now, but if Olympus is working on such a camera than the Samsung square sensor could be definitely the way to go!

Back to reality, camera companies do register plenty of patents that will never be applied on real camera. So don’t get too much exited about that one!

New Micro Four Thirds reviews roundup (GF3 gets DxOmarked).

Share

DxOmark (Click here) tested the GF3 sensors: “We liked the GF3’s low-light ISO performance, its dimensions, and its price. This said, we were less enchanted by its ISO range, which we found limited its low-ISO scores in the Portrait and Landscape categories. (Its limited ISO also resulted in lower scores for Dynamic Range.)“. GF3 shop links: Amazon, Olympus US store, Adorama, B&H, eBay.

New Panasonic GX1 review at Cnet Asia (Click here): “We have said before that the GX1 is what the GF3 should have been. Although, we wonder why they stuck with a seemingly industrial design and didn’t opt for something similar to the or the Fujifilm FinePix X10, which seems to be the trend these days“. GX1 shop links: Amazon, Olympus US store, Adorama, B&H, eBay.

EosHD (Click here) released a bunch of downloadable GH2 patches. You have to hack your GH2 camera to use them!

There is a double Olympus lens review at Focus Numerique. First they tested the Olympus 45mm lens (Click here) and then the Olympus 12mm lens (Click here).
