New 43rumors readers work roundup….


I wanna thank all reader for sending me your best work examples made with m43 cameras and lenses! I think it’s a good chance to see what our 43rumors reader do in their real life :)

Marc:Not a rumor, but here’s the first sunrise of the year (In Japan), timelapsed with an EP3. Marocchio and Youtube

Michael:Hi! I saw that you sometimes display reader’s work, and I figured I’d share this particular project I just did. All images in this series were done in Venice, CA with a E-PM1 and 45mm f/1.8, with natural lighting and no light manipulators:

Gabriel: Just wanted to share this promo video that was shot exclusively with a GH2 and Panasonic Leica DG 25mm f1.4. Check it out!  This was my first paid production and I really am looking for unbiased feedback.  So please comment.

Henrik: “Hi there, you’re having a great website, it’s quite addictive. It inspired me to start my photography blog! This is it: So far only a few photographs I have taken with my Oly EPL2 and some old manual lenses (who needs power zoom lenses on a system camera ? ;-) ). Enjoy!

Nam:I’m currently in Fukui, Japan doing the whole teaching english thing and have put together a video that i’d like to share. It was shot using Pana GF1 and GF2 20mm 1.7, 12mm 2.0, OM 50 1.8 w/43 adapter, iPhone 4 and a couple from a friends D90 w/10.5mm 2.8. Cheers.”

Nik:I am an avid reader/visiter of 43rumors.  I typically post under the alias “blastingmills”.  I am a huge fan of Olympus 4/3 and micro 4/3.  I own an E-5 and a GH2, with a bunch of lenses. I noticed your recent reader roundup.  Here is a video I recently shot with the GH2, Voigtlander 25mm f0.95 and the 4/3 Zuiko 9-18mm.  Here is a link to the video:

Farrukh:Shot this with the EP3 and 25mm f1.4

Alex:Not really a rumor, but wanted to share a funny Christmas music video. Shot with Panasonic GF1 and Sony EX3.

Nikolai:Just wanted to share GH2 clip with 1974 vintage Russian lens Helios 44-2 58mm/F2 with M42-M4/3 adapter, no color correction or post processing, fabuluos bokeh!!!

Uwe: “Monarchs 2012 at vimeo.”

Jurek:I know you occasionally run a user’s-video post and if you think this qualifies, feel free to add it. The only pertinent fact is that is was shot with a bare un-hacked GH2 with the cheapest of kit lenses (14-42mm).

Leo: Hey I wanted to share a video I made of my new 14-42mm Panny X lens. I couldn’t find any videos on the net showing how the new power zoom options work in the menu of the GH2, so I made one myself. I thought it might help others when they’re thinking about getting the lens.

Alex: Maybe, you would like to post next video “How to make an infrared camera”. Here is 43 minutes (m43:)) video of whole process, how to make IR camera from Panasonic G1 m43 camera.

A.: Wanted to share an amazing video i’ve shot on Panasonic Lumix GH2 (hacked 150mbps). I’m STILLLLLL blown away about how great it looks. This camera is one mean sucka. Wanted to ask if you can share it on  :) Let me know what you think after watching it! Feel free to contact me via cell or email…link:

Caen: And as a way to participate, here is a mini web serie entirely filmed with a Gh2. It’s kinka weird, but hey, we’re french guys  :) First episode here and the blog which contains everything, here. No many important dialogues, so i think it’s kinda universal. Sometimes we say “what are you doing ?” that’s it, as a gimmick sentence.

Martin:Hi, not a rumor – just wanted to share some of my work. I’m working with the E-P2, since I don’t want to carry heavy equipment. Some results in my Google+ “Gnarly Trees” folder:

Bob:Check out this Panasonic Article on me: I actually used the GH2 for about 20 percent of the film, and the rest Af100

Ed:I have a small set on flickr showing sample shots taken with the SLR Magic 12mm 1.6.  I’m adding more tonight as well as images taken with Olympus M43 lenses.

Aaron:I’ve mentioned my website, once previously, but thought I’d plug it again just for fun.  It’s which is my travel / photo website from my travel year through Asia. All photos are taken with my trusty, now travel-worn, GF1.  I use the 20mm and 14mm primes, and recently added the 45-200 zoom out of necessity.  Once I start getting paycheck again, I’ll replace my GF1 with it’s true successor, the GX1.”

Benoit:Here’s my contribution to your list of reader’s work (it’s in French):

Dave:Here’s a video I shot on the GH2 with a Proskar anamorphic lens. Thought it might interest you.

James:Been shooting lots of Lens tests over the last 2 years- Here is my GH2 stuff.  Here is a nice one that I just finished, people seem to like it a lot.

Steven:I posted this mixed media video on Vimeo about two weeks ago. Although the background footage is 3D rendered, all of the live foreground footage is shot with the GH2 and the 14-140mm lens. There’s also some stop motion animation which is all shot with the GH2 as well.

Len:For the past two years I have exclusively used micro four thirds with a Voitlander 25 mm f 0.95 lens – specifically an Olympus EP-1. You can see my work here and at The last four exhibitions have been shot with this camera and lens set up…. I am personally very pleased with my A2 prints, and as an ex large format photographer I am very critical of my print quality.

Aike:so a year ago i decided to put a demekin lens lens on my e-p1. Because the 110 film format has nearly the same size..not so easy to mod…but it works great. A funny story is that my demekin traveled over 18k kilometers..the post in germany is sometimes strange:)…the lens is very small n light. makes fun to shoot without any adjustmens..i like it. I also asked the dekemkin seller if there is a plan for the demekin lens (mod) in the future…maybe a m4/3 version…price range 30dollar…but the guy said no its not possible for the maufactor……..what a pitty :) okay here you can se some pics..: and here is a testvideo….shot 100% with demekin an e-p1

Philippe:Here’s a link to a video made with the GH2 in Paris, starring the charming & beautiful model : Ida.

Ilya: “Hi, there my very best fotos from last few years and there many more fotos all shots are done with gh1 and gf1 with a several of lenses. From Russia with Love

Marc: I show my work, not because It’s spectacular or good, otherwise I take lot of pictures every week of outdoor activities. M43 system is perfect for activities like climbing, trekking, mountain biking,… where the weight matters. Me and my girlfriend use EP-2 and EPL-1, with different lenses. I only use prime lenses, and I’m in love with Oly 12mm. It’s written in Catalan, but can easily be translated.


  • Well, while we’re at it, here are a couple of videos I have done recently, both shot with a Panasonic GF1 + {20mm f1.7 pancake, Canon FD 50mm f1.4 S.S.C., cheap fisheye adapter}.

    Micro-adventure Story (runner-up in Howies competition):

    Wedding Video:


    • JimD

      Great, now for the follow up in Sapporo and 1st in Howies.

  • Joe

    Well, I didn’t know we’re doing this. I started shoot fashion and commercial photography STRICTLY on a micro 4/3 system. I originally started with the Olympus E-PL1, then E-PL2 with the m.Zuiko 45mm f1.8, then graduated to the Panasonic GH2 that I use most of the time with the Olympus 4/3 Zuiko 14-54mm f2.8-3.5 mkII lens and occasionally the 45mm m.Zuiko prime.

    Please let me know what you think of my work at

    I promise that I would do the micro 4/3 system justice!!

    • great stuff Joe!

    • JimD

      Nice shots, sharp, very excellent lighting, full justice 10 out of 10.

  • Atle

    How do you make a time lapse with the EP3?

  • Sooo… inspiring work from all!

    I am speechless! Thanks Admin for this Post!

  • Redkite

    Here’s a still I just did that I’m pleased with. GH2 + 14-140

  • Miroslav

    @ admin

    It’s a great little community you’ve gathered here! With this kind of momentum behind m4/3 coming both from manufacturers and users, this website could be one of the most important for the system. It would be excellent if you could turn it into something you could live off, so you can devote more time to it while still having time for personal stuff.

  • Miroslav

    To add to the list from the post…
    A while ago I put my three panoramas of frozen Belgrade in February on . Shot with E-PL1 and Olympus 14-150mm lens, stitched in MS ICE, corrected in Photoshop. All comments are welcome :).

  • Alex Tan

    hope im not too late to share, here’s my vlog for february. E-P1 with Voigtlander 25mm f0.95 :)

  • Thank you for the great work!

    Here is the first GH2 work that I feel good with.
    Vitali’s hack makes this an amazing pro video cam.

  • Henrik’s macro photos are very nice

  • Well, I could not see Gabriels GH2 + 1.4 25mmm “Vimeo page not found”…

  • Joe

    I really like the Christine and Lens. I’m a proponent on using the mu4/3 for fashion/commercial/art photography myself

    Joe Gunawan |

  • For those of you with a thing about tripods… please forgive me, I shoot video mostly in crowded bars and I just prefer to handhold the camera and live with the shaky results.
    I shot this in a dark bar with a GH2 with an Olympus 14-54mm lens at ISO 12800 and the 44mb hack
    My GH2 and the 14-140mm – The sound in all my videos is SOOC.
    GH2 with the Oly 14-54 FT lens adapted to mFT.
    GH2 with Oly 14-54mm

    My still photography can be seen here:
    I currently use the GH2, D7000, and have used the E-P1 E-3, E-510… and Nikon F2.

  • JimD

    Admin, you have some really talented people here. The results of this are great, I just cannot name a fav. I love them. Though the 1.58 seconds shot going up hill in LPowell 100Mps Flow Motion v1 did hit a little extra button. Congratulations to all its nice to know there are talented people using the same gear as me, it just proves its the driver not the bus that gets results.

  • moomin
  • I think there’s too much links at the same time !
    Great enthousiasm, but hard to go around everything

  • It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d definitely donate to this excellent blog! I guess for now i’ll settle for bookmarking and adding your
    RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to brand new updates and will talk about this blog with my Facebook group.
    Chat soon!

  • It’s very effortless to find out any topic on net as compared to textbooks, as I found this piece of writing at this web page.
