(FT4) Panasonic 150mm f/2.8 to be sold end of 2014.

Share

Two sources confirmed the Panasonic 150mm f/2.8 lens will be releases at Photokina in September. And a new source actually told me a small bit on the lens: There was a slight problem with the production of the lens that Panasonic had to solve. That’s why it’s coming a bit later than expected.

Here is the picture of the prototype lens:

New Android application for the Panasonic GH3 / GH4 by Raymond Bakker

Share

Work in progress fullscreen #liveview Android application for the Panasonic #GH3 / #GH4.

Raymond Bakker contacted me to share a cool news:

I’m working on an application that allows fullscreen liveview on Android for the Panasonic GH3 / GH4. I’m also looking at tackling livestreaming next, a feature the cameras should really have in my opinion. Check out the photo of the work in progress application. https://twitter.com/Raymond_Bakker/status/465600777470640128. Maybe you can feature it as I am sure many are waiting on these functionalities.

Good Work Raymond!

(FT1) The OMD Full Frame E-mount camera.

Share

Well, sometimes I really get “impossible” rumors. I am 99% sure these specs are fake but it’s good to see your reaction on that camera anyway. The anonymous source who sent me this said Olympus will present a Full Frame E-mount OMD at Photokina in September. These would be the specs:

– 32 Megapixel Full Frame sensor (Sony made sensor)
– ISO 50-102,400
– 3 fps
– dual core newly developed Olympus processor
– No on sensor stabilization (!)
– USB 3.0

I repeat it. Don’t believe this is ever going to happen although it would be “possible” for Olympus to make a camera like that. The only thing that would disappoint me on that camera is not having the on sensor stabilization :(
