FacebookShare

The image you see here on top shows you the new super quality (and a bit expensive) Olympus 75mm f/1.8 lens. One of my sources now unveiled that also Panasonic will unveil a fast tele prime lens at Photokina. I have no specs yet but I hope it will be a bit cheaper so that we can put some pressure on Olympus 75mm price. This is not the only lens Panasonic will announce at Photokina but I have no reliable info about these lenses…for now!

Olympus 75mm preorder and price check at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto, Amazon Germany and Amazon UK.

Comparing the E-M5 (Sony) and G3 (Panasonic) 16 Megapixel sensors.

FacebookShare

My friend Tyson Robicheaud (Click here) compared the Olympus E-M5 with 16 Megapixel Sony sensor with the Panasonic G3 and 16 Megapixel Panasonic sensor: “I really wanted to see how these two sensors compared to one another as I have been very impressed by the G3.” Check out his website to learn more about the test!

Meantime I remind you that on July 18th we will see the new G5 which has the same G3 sensor but a newly improved processor. Let’s hope the new GH3 (again 16 MPX?) sensor brings a major improvement in RAW quality too!

Does it work? E-M5 iPhone controller…

FacebookShare

A 43rumors readers just shared a way to connect the Olympus E-M5 (and other Olympus/Panasonic) cameras with an iPhone remote controller APP.You have to buy the Triggertrap Mobile Dongle (Click here) and the Triggertrap connction cable (Click here). Once you have them you can download the Triggertrap APP (Click here) to remotely control your E-M5.

This is what it does:

* Time Lapse
* Eased Timelapse (timelapses with acceleration!)
* Distance-lapse (take a photo every 30 ft/m)
* Vibration and shock sensors
* Sound detection (Clap to take a photo!)
* Facial Recognition sensor
* Motion detection
* Magnetic & metallic detectors
* Long-Exposure HDR**
* Long-Exposure HDR Timelapse
* Star Trail mode
* Cable Release (press to take a photo) which also supports Long-exposure shots (exposures of up to 24 hours!)

Question is….some of you ever tested it? Is it something we can recommend to E-M5 owners?
