Updated Primers EQX sets for Panasonic cameras

Share

Press text:

We have just updated our Primers EQX sets for Panasonic cameras.
This update affects Panasonic EVA1 and GH5 Primers EQX sets, bringing significant image improvements across the signal range and shooting scenarios.
Multiple microtonal optimizations are achieved, affecting accuracy, separation, organicity, richness and signal stability for post production.
Image now feels and behaves more naturally, having superior transition to overexposure, which together with tonal organicity brings film-like image performance. This update also brings easier camera matching. Update is free of charge for existing Primers customers and it is hittting emails soon.
Panasonic GH5S is scheduled for analysis and optimization.

Primers project info:
Primers are per-sensor and base colour science designed, scene-independent image transformations, embodied into a set of high precision 3DLUTs. Each set is designed on custom-developed, professional, in-depth camera signal analysis, to provide superior imaging results with organic and stable image basis. Primers transformation tools re-structure the signal within the transformation step from base colour science to delivery standard, implementing multiple image optimizations in aesthetic and technical parameters and additionally empowering post-production workflow.

Guide Numbers for some recent Olympus Flashes

Share

Our reader Jim sent me this text:

For the latest Olympus Flash (the FL-700WR with radio control), the multi-language user’s manual can be download from:
http://download.aws.olympus.eu/consumer/manuals/cameras/FL-700WR_FLASH_MANUAL_MULTI.pdf

I have studied the documentation concerning various flashes by Olympus and published two articles (in French) on:
http://www.monolympus.com/t37734-nouveau-flash-olympus-fl-700wr-a-telecommande-radio
&
http://www.monolympus.com/t37733-ng-nombre-guide-pour-differents-flash-olympus

Conclusion:
The flash power, given as a Guide Number at 100 ISO, corresponds for Olympus to the longest corresponding zoom focal length covered, which is the most favourable (highest number).
This makes it difficult to compare different flashes that have different focal ranges.

The data for all flashes are from the Olympus documentation, except for my FL-900R where I found no data from Olympus but was able to read all the figures on the back panel with the flash set to manual and varying the focal length.
The table and graph attached here are an attempt to clarify matters: they give the Guide Numbers in metres of focal length v/s zoom length in mm of true Olympus focal length.

Hoping that helps.

Kind regards.
