a little bit of everything…


Panasonic GH2 tested with the macro extension tube: “SLR Magic (they create the famous Toy Lens) asked me to test their prototype macro extension tube for 4/3 sensor camera’s. I ended up with creating “Blossom” It’s all shot within 1 or 2 hours in and around my office and privite house. Postproduction was done in less then a day.

New automatic retractable lens cap for the XZ-1 (DC.watch).

    can we have deeper nested comments say 8 or 10(I think you have it set to the default 5 )

    • admin

      Yes, It’s something I already have on the todo list. The last 4 weeks I have been extremely busy. Now I have more time for rumors and for website fixes :)

        You’ve forgotten the Photovillage link.

    Nokton is 1064 in Europe but 1300 in the US? Horseshit.

    I guess the macro extension tubes are for those videographers seeking that shakey, out of focus with glare look? O.o

      I don’t understand your comment. The shakiness and glare are obviously things the photographer can control so are intentional, and the focus is obviously limited when you use a macro extension. I quite liked the video.

    the Size Doesn’t Matter post is interesting, the response maybe moreso

    I want that Noktor, but a half kilo lens on such a compact camera body seems to defeat the object. I still want it though…

    > The third problem lies with image quality. I can just about live with noise, but I can’t save a picture with poor focus.

    What a relief. I’m not alone thinking that way.

  • Amazing video!

    Your video is really awesome! Congratulations on that! :)
