Photokina 2012: Panasonic has unveiled the DMC-GH3, its most movie-orientated Micro Four Thirds camera yet.

These include 3.5mm mic and headphone sockets, 60p/60i/30p/24p output, All-I or IPB compression options (at up to 80 or 50 Mbps respectively) and timecode support.

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

What’s the big deal with Blackmagic Design cinema camera’s M4/3 lens mount? | COMPACT VIDEO & PHOTOGRAPHY | 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

Prueba del Lente Lumix G X Vario 12-35 F2.8 Lens Test con la Panasonic AG-AF100

Took the Lumix 12-35 out for a quick test shoot with the Panasonic AF-100. I mostly shot wide open and 5.6 from 12mm to 35mm. The lens is parfocal which I am very happy about. Performs very well and is nice and light. This ones a keeper. The range is just great. Equivalent to a 24-70 in 35mm world. This makes it my most useful lens I own for the AF-100 and lets not forget the GH2. For stills the 12-35 on the GH2 is sweet! OIS for hand held and again a great range.

Please visit my blog for more on the Lumix 12-35. eriknaso.com/2012/08/27/testing-out-the-panasonic-lumix-g-x-vario-12-35mm/

I wanted to make this a "test video" but I don't like shooting charts. Not my thing, so I added the F-stops and focal length for easy assessment. I hope it helps. Over time I'm going to add more shots to this test video but for know I think it shows this lenses capability.
As for zooming while shooting I didn’t test this. I will soon. The lens wasn’t designed to be a servo type lens but with a follow focus attached slow pushes and pulls might be possible. I will test this out soon and add this to the description.

Hay ya unas cuantas cámaras de vídeo/fotografía orientadas específicamente a los momentos de acción. Deportes extremos, actividades de riesgo o simplemente esas situaciones en las que andar con una réflex y su óptica a cuestas es incómodo y puede terminar con varios cientos de euros diseminados por varios metros a la redonda tras algún batacazo. CamOne Infinity juega en la misma liga que, por ejemplo, la famosa GoPro, casi un estándar en estas lides. Pero la baza de la recién llegada brilla con luz propia por las posibilidades que promete: cuenta con lentes intercambiables.

Is the Panasonic LUMIX G3K the “Perfect” Camera?

Is the Panasonic LUMIX G3K the “Perfect” Camera? | COMPACT VIDEO & PHOTOGRAPHY | Scoop.it
The short answer is “in a sense.” Of course, digital cameras are not designed and built to be “perfect,” but to match specific uses and, therefore, markets: point-and-shoots for a beginner consumer market, introductory and mid-range DSLRs for serious amateurs and professional-grade DSLRs for pros and semi-pros.
What may put the Panasonic LUMIX G3K camera in a class of its own is that it has easy-to-use compact camera-like features for the typical amateur as well as pro-like capabilities for a broad range of more experienced photographers.
Shooting with the LUMIX G3K, beginners can quickly be more creative without a huge learning curve.

Sobre esta cámara os adelantaré que me ha gustado más que la GF3, su cuerpo es algo mayor pero posee detalles que la hacen mas profesional. Como es la rueda trasera con la que podremos variar los diferentes parámetros de apertura de diafragma o velocidad de exposición. Así como la rueda superior de selección de modos.

The Online Photographer: $700 GH2 Beats $70,000 Movie Cameras in Shootout

$700 GH2 Beats $70,000 Movie Cameras in Shootout

In a comparison test in front of a blind panel of film experts that included "Godfather" director Francis Ford Coppola, the lowly Panasonic GH2 came out on top—besting a battery of expensive bespoke movie cameras that included the Sony F65, Red Epic, Canon C300 and Arri Alexa.

The occasion was Zacuto's "Revenge of the Great Camera Shootout 2012." As the EOSHD blog concluded, "For digital theatre screenings in 2k or 1080p, extremely high end cameras simply don’t look that much different to the lower end ones. It is therefore the lighting and the skill behind the camera that makes a larger percentage of the difference."

One interesting lesson that might translate to still photography was that DPs shouldn't try to show off their cameras' dynamic range: "More dynamic range does not always make for a better looking image. It is there to give you more choices in post."

Canon: "The EOS-M is made for women". No plan to make FF mirrorless (for now) | COMPACT VIDEO & PHOTOGRAPHY | Scoop.it

Posted by MirrorlessRumors on August 10, 2012


"DC.watch (Translation here) interviewed the Canon team that developed the EOS-M mirrorless camera. Here are some interesting bits from the interview:


1) From the beginning the goal was to make the EOS-M as good as other EOS DSLR cameras. And to make ir small and light.
2) First goal is to reach a 15% of the mirrorless market share in Japan (by October).
3) Shutter from the EOS DSLR series has been minaturzized to fit into the EOS-M
4) GX1 sales are still strong (production is 30.000 units per month).
5) A Four Thirds sensor would bring an even further advantage in miniaturization but Canon wanted to make it fully EOS compatible.
6) We chosed to have Phase detection pixel on sensor because that technology works better than COntrast AF on moving objects."
