Nowadays Â many people are sharing Youtube-videos made with the Pansonic Lumix GH1. But this one is the first GH1 video made with a Tilt ShiftÂ lens. It reminds me of photos from Olivo Barbieri. This very facility is one of the reasons why I’m playing with the idea of buying or renting the GH1 for my next videoproject. I would use a Tilt Shift lens all the time :)
Sometimes things can be surprising. Yesterday we wrote the “Itâ€™s all quiet on this frontâ€¦” post. And we predicted that something will happen soon. But we havn’t expected that soon! Olympus marketing is learning and came out with first signal using a new social communication form….twitter!
1001noisycamera discovered this tweet post.
In short the message from Florian (getolympus) is “What Olympus plans is pure speculation at this time, but it’s common knowledge that we & Panasonic jointly created Micro Four Thirds….Some good things are worth waiting for, like the Olympus Micro Four Thirds camera….”

We repeat, ous sources are really excited over that micro four thirds camera. I can say you the same sources were not so happy with the Olympus E-450 release.

10 days ago I subscribed to the Olympus MicroFourThirds letter. I havn’t received any info and in general it seems we are the only website bringing out news. Pentax and Sony rumors are on fire, and we have still to wait. No image leaks or Â anything else. I believe we don’t have long to wait before we will see REAL signs that the camera is coming! So I will enjoy the silence now, make some small talk with friends and my wife, and enjoy the sun because in a few weeks time I will have to work night and day to keep you updated with all the rumors! :(
By the way, if you have questions or tips contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some personal updates,
I am trying to get an Olympus RC on Ebay, one slipped through because my Internet connection failed to work 8 seconds before the auction ended! Da.. it!
I am travelling to Australia in late July/August. And I’m still thinking if it is worth getting the Panasonic GH1. The trip would be a good chance to experiment with the GH1, but the price is still too high for me. Perhaps some of my 19! 43rumors visitors from The Emirates want to sponsor me? No? ok! ok!
So back to work now!
Have a nice day!
It seems there is a small possibility that the next Four Thirds camera will be named under new E-system naming conventions.
Something Canon did with it’s 1000D and Nikon with it’s new D5000.
Please remember that we are a rumor site. We are not affiliated to Olympus or Panasonic. We get a lot of rumors which are sometimes contradictory. And we have learned in the past years that the big companies usually make last minute changes. That’s why we’re waiting before publishing rumors we have Â so as not to confuse you!
UPDATE: A source claimed to know that the next classic four thirds camera will have an “OM” instead of a “E” signature.
The four thirds photo website wrote an interesting article which explains Â how to create 360 degree panoramas. Read more at http://www.fourthirdsphoto.com/360/
