Video on top: Looks like the Nocticron is going around the world to participate different expositions. I hope it’s also going to be around the “shop-worlds” for purchase soon!
Peter: “I looked at the noise in my E-PL3 sensor from a 60 sec exposure. image (not shown) looks similar to E-M1 noise pattern. I don’t think anyone else has put up a histogram of the noise. I’ll talk to some colleagues of mine about this when I get in to work on Monday. http://electro-garbage.blogspot.com/2013/11/the-noise-issue-that-has-come-to-light.html”
Berneck: “Good article about how shallow depth of field is being overused, and not needed for an excellent photo.: http://www.dpmag.com/how-to/shooting/go-deep.html”
Steven: “thought this might be interesting for the community. I contacted Olympus asking them, if a firmware update is planned for the OMD EM1 (concerning frame-rate for movie mode). Their answer is below. You are welcome to publish the forwarded e-mail below:
Dear Mr XXX,
Thank you for your email.
Frame rate is pre-set and given by the file format .MOV and there is no way to influence it.
As for today we have no info about upcoming firmware, but as we were said the movie issues has been mentioned.
Lee: “Not rumor but I just saw the news you have posted regarding EM1 long exposures, it happens to Panasonic GX1 as well, and those little speckles will be gone if the NR is turned on. I have written about similar issue sometimes ago in my blog –
No intention to drive traffic to my blog but would like to point out exact same issue I see happens to both GX1 and EM1, If the camera sensor has this problem, practically two things can’t be done – long exposure timelapse and startrails because you need to turn on NR and that breaks the interval.
Previously I have tested GF1 and this issue is unseen. I’m curious about GX7/GM1. By the way I don’t think Panasonic fixes the problem ;)“
