Amy Davies gives a brief preview of what to expect from Canon, Nikon, Sony, Panasonic, Olympus, Fuji and Samsung at Photokina 2012 in Germany.
The 2012 London Olympic Games were captured (in images and video) by Getty photographer Dean Mouharopoulous, who shot exclusively with the Panasonic DMC-G5 camera. In this video, Dean and Panasonic experts talk about using the G5 in different situations and finding the right lens to get the best shot. From Mirrorless Central: We love the Panny Lenses discussed in the video, and there are a lot of other phenomenal lenses that are compatible with the M43 format. In fact, if you’re going the interchangeable lens route, micro four thirds is a great option as there are more lenses available in [More]
This is the Sony NEX-5R, the latest addition to the NEX range, and the direct replacement for the NEX-5N. Compared with the NEX-5N there’s a re-designed APS-C sensor, improved sensitivity performance, a hybrid auto-focus system, App compatibility, Wi-Fi connectivity, degree tiltable touch screen and a few additions to the body. Here Ali Jennings takes a look at Sony’s latest NEX release.
Mike and Nick from Unique Photo do some night shooting to measure the Canon G1X, Panasonic GX1 and the Olympus OMD EM5 in a head to head to head match up. From Mirrorless Central: Bottom Line – The OMD EM5 and the Panasonic GX1 are both great cameras, they’re two of our favorites from the last year or so and you can’t go wrong with either. We haven’t personally tested the Canon, but it looks like a decent offering for those who aren’t in to interchangeable lenses. Our conclusion: The OMD is clearly the “Mercedes” of the bunch, and it [More]
Another review of the Olympus OM-D EM-5, hands down one of the best mirrorless cameras – check that – one of the best cameras PERIOD, to come out in the last several years. Pros and enthusiasts alike love this camera for it’s stunning Image Quality, 5 point image stabilization, lightining fast autofocus and retro form factor. If you’re interested in the OMD, we also recommend that you pick up the optional battery grip. It makes the camera easier to hold, and of course, adds to the battery life.
A short film shot with the new Olympus OMD EM-5. Took a in a shopping mall to shoot. Shot it with Monotone settings straight out of camera.
The Panasonic GF series has taken an interesting change of direction ever since the brilliant GF1 was first announced. With the GF2 and GF3 losing admirers of the range thanks to them losing key features. But now the GX1 is here and it’s promising to be the successor to the GF1. Is it any good though? The GX1 is a great camera, period… but it’s especially great for someone who’s looking to capture high quality photos and video, but pack that ability into a body that’s easy to carry around – and the GX1 delivers on all counts. At the [More]
This 2011 holiday roundup video covers advanced mirrorless cameras.
In the kickoff of season 3, Kai and Lok from DigitalRevTV compare an entry level DSLR – the Nikon D3100 – with a mirrorless camera – the E-P3 to see if there is still a point of having a DSLR. It looks like the small Olympus PEN E-P3 holds up pretty well against the Nikon, even surpassing it in some categories, and with recent advances in sensor technology, we’d bet that new Olympus cameras, like the new PEN Lite (E-PL5) and PEN Mini (E-PM2), that are equipped with the same sensor as the flagship OM-D E-M5 would do even better.
