YouTube - Un vistazo al visor de la Fujifilm X100 - CES 2011
watch the part where the guy was passing his finger through the HVF, it's the real deal! can't wait for this camera!
I bought the same bag for my wife a few months back. She/I don't use it much though, as I found it to be too inconvenient to use for its size (we found it to be too thick/wide). It was a bit too much for us because we always go out with just one body + one lens.
We found the crumpler 4mil home...
Same thing here in Singapore, Blu. Low prices and very lively after office hours :) Local groups here are already planning for a late night photo shoot tomorrow night and on friday.
Thanks for sharing!
Just saw this from a local forum I frequent (Singapore):
Seems like they sourced some products from different PEN accessories makers (aki-asahi, gariz, jnk) and created an online shop for it. Convenient because of the delivery but more expensive than going direct...
Congratulations on your E-P2, Drunkeld :) I'm pretty sure you'll really enjoy using it just like everyone else (myself included) in this community.
I've been doing a lot of iAuto shooting myself as well, and it does take out the stress of having to think of the settings before shooting.
The "fuzziness" or "ghosting" surrounding the gloves and vase is because of the paper thin DoF of the lens. So even though the sides/edges are quite close to the points in focus (side of the gloves facing us or wrinkles, and decor of the vase), due to the thin DoF, is already starting to blur...
The speed difference between f0.95 and f1.7 is very significant, Jon. The 10mm focal length difference (5mm x 2) is not so much though. The missing AF capability is something most people here can live with, as a lot of us already use manual lenses.
This is going to be a delight to use in low...
Welcome Saz! Welcome to mu-43 and congratulations on your E-PL1. You can always pickup a new EVF from funan (around SGD 300) if you really miss having a viewfinder :) I'm also located in Singapore, btw.
Lately I've really been wanting to get a new film camera after playing with the Yashica rangefinder I have for a while.
I've also realized that the only 2 lenses that I use with my E-P2 are the 17mm pancake lens and the voigtlander 40mm f1.4 that I have. The 17mm being my day time lens and the...
... and an E-P1 :D
After using the P2 for months, the lens that really stuck with me is the 17mm. Have also stopped using he EVF so Ive decided to sell the kit. With the money I got, bought myself a new rangefinder and a silver sexy P1 :) Really happy for myself!
Please go away with your expensive and beautiful camera that produces superb images, this is for MFT only!
With that out of the way, those are fantastic photos from the X1. I want to get one as well, but it's still too expensive for me :(
Here you go folks:
Olympus and Panasonic rumors Blog Archive (FT5) Awesome new Panasonic camera with m4/3 sensor, fixed 3x zoom lens and innovative Leica designed rangefinder!
It's said to be announced this July :)
When shooting, I have the middle finger in the loop. I think it's not really meant to be used for carrying, but more for securing your grip on the camera.
Since I only use the neck strap that I have to secure my grip on my camera, I find this less of a hassle to use. Otherwise, a neck strap...
Asked a friend in Japan to get me these as the seller in Rakuten doesn't ship internationally.
It was difficult to install as it was meant for rangefinder cameras that had lugs that protruded a bit more than the E-P1/2's. Can't be installed on the GF1, my wife was sad about...
Wow, that was indeed fantastic, both the video and the trio! They're great. I'll try looking them up on youtube. They probably have performances recorded floating around :)
UPDATE: Looked them up, it turns out they already have quite a following. Lots of videos on youtube under Berklee Latin...
Hi Paul, yeah, my family back in Manila complains about the temps as well -- crazy hot.
During daytime, you might want to go with IS turned off if you have enough light and high shutter speeds. Say maybe if you're able to get 1/250 or more, also depending on the focal length you have on.
I somewhat find the form very odd, especially with long lenses. The mount's diameter being longer than the height of the body, as well as the very slim body somehow makes me think that sony made everything tight and compact just for the sake of getting the claim that their system is the...
