Panasonic announcement tomorrow. S1R can take 187 MP high resolution images but on tripod only.

Panasonic launched this teaser video for the S line announcement which will happen tomorrow (Jan 31). On I posted some new leaked images and specs. And interetsing news is that the S1R camera takes 187 Megapixel images in multi shot mode. But unlike the new Olympus E-M1X this works on tripod only. Probably it’s much harder to make handheld resolution mode work on the larger Full Frame sensor.

(FT5) This is the first image of the new Olympus 12-200mm lens!

Here is “One more thing” from Olympus! They will soon announce this new 12-200mm f/3.5-6.3 MFT lens. A perfect glass fro travellers!

More specs:
– dust, splash and freeze-roof.
– MSC system like the 12-50
– Focus distance of 22 cm
– 455 g
– Available : late March
– Price 899€

Stay tuned for more rumors soon! And keep an eye on as there is a lot of new info about Panasonic S gear today!

Panasonic announcement confirmed to happen on February 1

I now got the exact date of the Panasonic announcement: Reviews and first Panasonic S1-S1R preorders will go online at 11:30 London time of February 1. And as you can see from the image on top and the video teaser below everything is focused on the new S Full Frame mirrorless line.

There is no hint at all that we might get some MFT related gear too. Anyway, it will be interesting to see what tech Panasonic will throw on the S line. Some of that might be used on future MFT cameras too.

New E-M1X studio test from DPreview: “high-res Pixel Shift mode is still impressive”

Dpreview added the Studio test results for the E-M1X including pixel shift test shots:

“Our standard studio tests show that conventional stills performance is little changed from the E-M1 II, but its high-res Pixel Shift mode is still impressive.”

Peter Baumgarten also tested the E-M1X and writes:

In the short time that I have been using the E-M1X I have been quite impressed with its performance and more importantly, the quality of images I was able to get. After a few days of use my muscle memory got used to the increase in size and found the camera to be quite comfortable, especially with the longer lenses. At a price of $2999 USD, this isn’t a camera that most enthusiasts will turn to. However, with the rugged build, great image quality, and increased performance it is definitely one that should attract many professionals who want the advantages of m4/3s system.

E-M1X Preorders:
Olympus E-M1X in USA at Amazon, GetOlympus, Adorama and BHphoto.
Olympus E-M1X in Europe at Calumet Germany, ParkCameras, Jessops, WexUK.

Panasonic announcement on January 31: Full S line info and likely no MFT news

As reported today on Panasonic will have a major press event next week on January 31. I am 100% sure Panasonic will unveil full specs about their new S cameras and lenses. I got no info yet about a possible MFT announcement. I don’t think Panasonic wants to mix in some MFT news with the S launch.

At best we might get some more info about the new 10-25mm f/1.7 MFT zoom lens:


Cool: Olympus E-M1X vs Canon 1D X Mark II comparison by Apotelyt posted this nice specs and size comparisons

They also made the great work to summarize the PROS and CONS of each camera:

Review summary: Olympus E-M1X vs Canon 1D X Mark II

So what is the bottom line? Which of the two cameras – the Olympus E-M1X or the Canon 1D X Mark II – has the upper hand? A synthesis of the relative strong points of each of the models is listed below.

Advantages of the Olympus OM-D E-M1X:

  • Maximized detail: Lacks an anti-alias filter to exploit the sensor’s full resolution potential.
  • High quality composites: Can combine several shots after pixel-shifting its sensor.
  • More framing info: Has an electronic viewfinder that displays shooting data.
  • More flexible LCD: Has swivel screen for odd-angle shots in portrait or landscape orientation.
  • More selfie-friendly: Has an articulated screen that can be turned to be front-facing.
  • Faster burst: Shoots at higher frequency (18 vs 16 flaps/sec) to capture the decisive moment.
  • Less disturbing: Has an electronic shutter option for completely silent shooting.
  • More compact: Is smaller (144x147mm vs 158x168mm) and thus needs less room in the bag.
  • Less heavy: Is lighter (by 533g or 35 percent) and hence easier to carry around.
  • Sharper images: Has hand-shake reducing image stabilization built-in.
  • More legacy lens friendly: Can take a broad range of non-native lenses via adapters.
  • Easier file upload: Has wifi built in for automatic backup or image transfer to the web.
  • Easier wireless transfer: Supports Bluetooth for image sharing without cables.
  • More affordable: Was introduced into a lower priced category (50 percent cheaper at launch).
  • More modern: Reflects 2 years and 11 months of technical progress since the 1DX Mark II launch.

Arguments in favor of the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II:

  • Better moiré control: Has an anti-alias filter to avoid artificial patterns to appear in images.
  • Better image quality: Features bigger pixels on a larger sensor for higher quality imaging.
  • Richer colors: Larger pixels generate images with better, more accurate colors.
  • More dynamic range: Capable of capturing a wider spectrum of light and dark details.
  • Better low-light sensitivity: Can be used in poorly lit environments and still produce good images.
  • Better video: Provides higher movie framerates (4K/60p versus 4K/30p).
  • Brighter framing: Features an optical viewfinder for clear, lag-free composition.
  • Easier setting verification: Features a control panel on top to check shooting parameters.
  • Larger screen: Has a bigger rear LCD (3.2″ vs 3.0″) for image review and settings control.
  • More detailed LCD: Has a higher resolution rear screen (1620k vs 1037k dots).
  • Longer lasting: Gets more shots (1210 versus 870) out of a single battery charge.
  • More heavily discounted: Has been around for much longer (launched in February 2016).

Well done Apotelyt!
