Genesis – is this the Reverie moment for the GH3? | EOSHD.com | Cimaginations | Scoop.it

As you can see it looks splendid. Some lovely shots in there and great choice of optics. Love the train station set and the tracking shot in the desert cafe. Some nice dynamic range going on there. It is hard to see any flaws image quality wise and dynamic range looks and codec looks much improved over the GH2. There’s a big difference to the camera encoding chip being designed for ALL-I and it being hacked in by changing the firmware.

DSLR News Shooter | What’s the big deal with Blackmagic Design cinema camera’s M4/3 lens mount?

DSLR News Shooter | What’s the big deal with Blackmagic Design cinema camera’s M4/3 lens mount? | Cimaginations | Scoop.it

The newly announced passive M4/3 mount Blackmagic Design cinema camera (BMCC) presents a more attractive proposition to many shooters than it’s sister the EOS mount BMCC. Why? because it opens up a whole range of lens options that are otherwise impossible or difficult to mount on the EOS version of the BMCC. Obviously there are some nice manual M4/3 lens options such as the Voigtlander 17.5mm f0.95 and 25mm f0.95 as well as the SLR Magic range, but the real advantage comes from being able to use readily available lens adapters to other lens mounts

I can’t tell you too much about the camera until Monday when it is officially announced for obvious reasons, and I doubt any of you have a clue what the camera is or anything about it

Much has been made of the small sensor, internal battery, and unique design but my focus will be on post. The one thing I will say is kudos to Blackmagic for providing a solution to those looking to shoot wide angle with their IBC announcement of the BMC MFT (Micro Four Thirds). I love the innovation considering their initial camera is in the infancy stage of the launch.
