Anonymous:A couple of weeks ago you posted a video comparison between the OMD and a 5D MkIi. The same guys have uploaded another video to Vimeo and to one of their blogs. www.modular4kc.com. Don’t know what there story is but the comparison between the cameras is pretty solid. OMD beats the 5D on image stabilization hands down.
Farrukh:I was shooting the London Paralympics with an EP3 and a 45mm f1.8. I’ve put up a few slideshows and written a short commentary of my experience here: http://implausibleblog.com/london-paralympics-2012/ I know, the EP3 is ‘old’ but it worked perfectly fine for me!
Ted:My 15-minute documentary, shot on a Panasonic GH1, is premiering at a film festival Saturday. The film is: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2170278/ and the festival is: http://www.coneyislandfilmfestival.com/programs12/program5.htm Thanks! I know you sometimes post links about things made with the GH cameras. More info here: http://documentaryphotography.blogspot.com/
Naveed:This is not a rumor, but I thought I’d share with your readers my experience riding the Cycle Oregon 2012 bike ride earlier this month. I exclusively used micro 43s cameras and lenses and produced some great images. Everyone on the ride was amazed that I was carrying an interchangeable lens camera with many lenses under my bike seat bag. The OM-D EM-5 and the lenses were a joy to use and I had a great time over the week long 450 mile ride. For those who are not familiar with Cycle Oregon, it is a one of the most popular organized bike ride. About 2200 people ride for a week along Oregon scenic country side. This years ride was in South Central Oregon visiting landmarks like Crater Lake. The challenge with such a ride is carrying camera that would allow to capture the experience without weighing you down. The typical camera on such rides would be a point and shoot. But thanks to the magic of m43, I was able to carry the OMD EM5 and an assortment of lenses in an under seat carrying bag. In addition to it being an extremely challenging ride, I was rewarded with opportunity to visit some of the most beautiful landscapes and capture them with all the flexibility afforded by an interchangeable lens camera. I carried the OMD body with the M.Zuiko 12mm, 40-150mm, 12-50mm and the Panasonic-Leica 25mm lens, 1 circular polarizer and a 10 stop ND filter. On a give ride day, I would only carry 2 or 3 lenses, using the 12mm and 40-150mm lenses for a majority of the pictures. Both these lenses are just brilliant. Everybody expects the 12mm to perform well and it does live up to its hype, but the 40-150mm lens was the true star of my kit. Its easily one of the best lenses in the system for the size, quality and price.
Here are some of the pictures I took over the week. The complete set can be found here http://www.flickr.com/photos/stopkidding/sets/72157631564076321/
Robert:Great looking news image campaign shot on a hacked GH2 with the SLR Magic 12mm. Here’s the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UIxrxmOnBoU. Here is the post (top of page by Greek_m43): http://personal-view.com
Kiem:I saw your post on Craig Mod and David Clapp showing the potential of the GF1 and I thought I’d share my own around the world experience with it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGnrT0F-Igs. Everything here was shot on a GF-1. More info can be found at http://kienlam.net/travel-faq.
Gregor:I’m the creator of Digital Camera Database (www.digicamdb.com). My site is brand new and offers something that no other site offers – visual comparison of actual sensor sizes and other sensor characteristics for more than 3200 digital cameras, including of course Panasonic and Olympus cameras. I hope you will find this newsworthy enough to include it in the news section.

  • Thanks for the shout out on the 5D vs OMD comparison. The second video is “Greaserama” if you come to the site. Here is the direct link. http://modular4kc.com/2012/09/10/the-olympus-omd-vs-canon-5d-mkii-at-greaserama-2012/

    Although the GH2 will soon be overshadowed by the GH3 (when it is finally released), do not underestimate the GH2, an excellent video/stills camera. I am fortunate to own the GH2 and the E-M5 (whioh is as close to heaven as you can currently get with ILCs).

  • Doug

    Ok, I only recognized some of those numbers…. As it’s not in English…. But the most interesting part was how many women confessed their ages!! Usually that is a well guarded secret ;)! Note how some of the elderly where very proud of their ages? :)

  • WT21

    I’m learning how to count to 100 in Dutch!

  • hey! thanks for linking my cycle oregon photos! appreciate it!

  • Pei

    A lot of non-native people in Netherlands.

    • jan

      Non-native people? Just because people have a somewhat darker skin than yours, you call them non-native? Aren’t you a bit simple-minded? Or worse than that?

      • Camaman

        Why do you get insulted.
        If people are not genetically native to an area, they are non-native.
        Doesn’t look like racism to me.

        • jan

          ‘Genetically native’? The nazis murdered more than 6 million jewish people because they were supposed to be ‘not genetically native’.

          This GH2-movie gives a beautiful visualization of diversity. One hundred very different people, different in background, colour, education, skills, age, temper, ambitions, spirit, all connected in this film by speaking out a number in their common language. One people showing its community ánd its diversity.

          A great concept, beautifully presented.

          And all you can do is distinguish those people in terms of nativeness, based on the colour of their skin.

          ‘Doesn’t look like racism to me’? Please, think again.

    @ Admin:
