{?>Olympus E-PL1. On dpreview forum he says that “With the AF light, I can take photos in pitch black conditions using the flash. Normally, this would be impossible. I also added a mode for the light to stay on constantly for video or whatever you desire with a constant light.

Now he wants to teaming up with a manufacturer to produce these device. Contact him if you want to collaborate!

Well don ZappB!!!

(FT5) Panasonic 8mm f/3.5 fisheye to be unveiled next week

According to many rumors we received from different sources Panasonic will launch a the new P&S camera but also the long awaited 8mm f/3.5 fisheye lens. It will be smaller than any other 8mm lens on market (smaller than the $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

if ($loc == 'GB' OR $loc == 'UK')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'ES')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'IT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'AT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'DE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'BE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'AU')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'FR' OR $loc == 'FX')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'NL')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'CA')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'US')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus 8mm f/3.5 if ($sel != '1')
{?>Olympus 8mm f/3.5 and the $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

if ($loc == 'GB' OR $loc == 'UK')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'ES')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'IT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'AT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'DE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'BE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'AU')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'FR' OR $loc == 'FX')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'NL')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'CA')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'US')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma 8mm f/3.5 if ($sel != '1')
{?>Sigma 8mm f/3.5).

It doesn’t come with optical image stabilizer and it can’t take filter (like the Panasonic 7-14mm).

We don’t know when the lens will be in Stock but we really hope Panasonic will not make us wait too long!

Via Photorumors:
The Panasonic FX75 will have 14MP and a Leica 24mm ultra-wide-angle f/2.2 Summicron lens with 5x optical zoom. The camera will support HD video in AVCHD Lite format. No RAW file format.

Keep following 43rumors!

First image samples taken with the new Olympus 14-150mm lens!

As you know by end of June Olympus will release the new Olympus 14-150mm f/4.0-5.6 lens (preorder on amazon for $599).

Inside the forum photofan.jp there is one of those lucky guys that had the chance to test the new lens (google english translation). He says that focus speed is fast and very quiet. The lens it selft is very lightweight, zoom ring is very large and focus ring is very smooth.

I will post here two of the images he has taken with the lens. The first image has been taken at 14mm and the second at 150mm. Click on the image to enlarge!

Click here and scroll down to see the image samples: photofan forum

UPDATE: “Olddo” just sent us the link to the original image samples on Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/olddo
Thanks!
