Blackmagic MFT camcorder now shipping. Kipon still not.

Share

There is a MFT camera announced at Photokina that still ins’t in Stock yet. It is the Blackmagic MFT camcorder. The good news is that John Browley posted that image of the just received Blackmagic MFT camera (discussion at forum.blackmagicdesign / found via Slashcam).  If you preordered the camera you may receive it soon too!

Something that isn’t shipping yet is the Kipon adapter with full electronic control. Don’t know why there is a delay and I see only the manual adapters listed on eBay (Click here).. You got some info about that?

Nokton 42,5mm f/0.95 to ship this summer.

Share

Small update about the new Nokton lens. Unlike the Panasonic 42,5mm f/1.2 lens (that is likely to hit the market in early 2014 only) Voigtlander-Cosina will ship the lens from this summer. Price is yet unknown although we can easily guess it will be priced at around $1200 like the current 17mm lens. Save this search on Slidoo to be notified when the lens will be available for preorder on eBay.

Reminder: These are for now the only image samples I found on the web. Please let me know if you can find more of them. Thanks!

GF3 with X kit for $379.

Share

Panasonic may don’t know yet how to define the new G camera roadmap but at that price even the current G cameras are a hot deal. Today you have the chance to grab the GF3 with X zoom for $379 at BuyDig (Click here).

As I told you before the new GF camera should be announced in Spring and not be that much different from the current GF5. Small improvements on sensor and autofocus is what we can expect. But it will also be much more expensive than the current GF3-5 cameras.
