Panasonic GH1 banding issue?

There is a long and incredibly interesting thread in the forum where people analyze the video quality of the Panasonic GH1. It seems the camera has a blue channel banding issue. I hope Panasonic can fix it soon.

UPDATE: It seems the same effect is present in the red channel.
UPDATE2: You can download a video sample from the GH1 from here:

UPDATE3: More videos for dowload avaiable here:

A little bit of all… have released a high-ISO comparison between the Canon EOS Rebel T1i vs. Nikon D5000 vs. Olympus E-620 . It’s unlikely that there  an Olympus E-series camera will feature video soon but just for fun you can take a look at this video showing the Zacuto.

And lastly we wish all the best to which turns one year old today! Happy Birthday!

(FT 5) Panasonic compact m4/3 will be their next camera


This is the now famous rendered image (remember it is not REAL). But we like it ;)

It was never going to be a big surprise, we knew it would be happening a long time ago . But now Panasonic confirmed that “rumor” to the New York Times.

Here’s the most interesting excerpt from the article: “Panasonic say that they’re working on new models that will pack all of this miraculous technology into even smaller Micro Four Thirds packages.”

Panasonic rumors…

Recently Olympus has held the rumor stage becuase Panasonic just launched the GH1 and will wait a few months to announce new stuff. We receive few rumors now and most of them are not serious (from unknown sources). We believe Panasonic will prepare a big show for this fall releasing new lenses and more importantly new digital cameras! We are vigorously working to collect rumors about this camera and we will share all our information as soon as we get it. The most interesting rumor is of course the compact micro four thirds camera.

And we are still waiting for the 20mm 1.7 lens :(

Excitement is in the air…

When we talk with our sources they seem to be sincerely excited over the upcoming Olympus cameras. Sometimes we have the feeling they know far more than they tell us. They really like what Olympus is preparing for us. This is not news, it is a feeling. And that matters!

May this be a good omen for us…

We believe you will LOVE the camera!
