E-P5 video shows new WiFi and QR code features. Camera shipping on June 14th

Share

The video on top shows you the new E-P5 WiFI and QR code features. There is also a video in German made by Digitalkamera. A couple of Image Samples can be seen at Olympus Imaging. But this may not be very interesting because the quality is exactly the same as the E.M5. And in case you missed it the new E-PL6 has been announced in Japan (DC.watch).

The camera will ship on June 14 according to Amazon US (Click here). Let me know if you can find preorder links and shipment info in Europe!

New Olympus E-P5 and Black Lens preorders are up at BHphoto (UPDATE: and Adorama)!

Not that in USA only there is not E-P5 with 14-42mm kit option yet. That kit will be available from the start in Europe and Japan only. The bad news is that the body only is a tiny bit too expensive (in my opinion) but there are also two good news: The E-P5 with VF-4 and 45mm lens makes you save $220. And the Black Lenses have exactly the same price as the Silver version.

Photographyblog: “G6 is the best overall compact system camera that Panasonic have yet released”

Share

The new G6 high shoulder design seen before on the Leica R9 (here on eBay).

Photographyblog (Click here) posted the first full G6 review and wrote a surprisingly positive conclusion: “In our view the Lumix G6 is the best overall compact system camera that Panasonic have yet released offering a great mix of must-have features, intuitive DSLR-like handling and speedy performance, all at a reasonable price.”

The G6 will ship from late June and preorders are up at Amazon (Click here), BHphoto (Click here), Adorama (Click here) and at Wex UK (Click here).

P.S: The previous generation G5 camera sells for $329 with lens at Groupon (Click here).
