Steven Wandy: Very interesting - but what is the difference in this patent's abilities and what they implemented in the EM10? Sounds like the same thing.
There's one more "Live" mode on the E-M10 called Live Composite. It stacks exposures with Lighten blending. This sounds indeed very similiar to the thing with the fireworks in the article above.
Isn't it on the E-M10 and it's called Live Composite? It basically stacks a couple of exposures like Live Time but uses a blending technique similliar to the Photoshop Lighten blending.
Gorgeous shot, really nice!The softly masked background in the upper right corner looks a bit uggly though.
armanius: Wow. That's one ugly looking camera.
I agree, it looks ugly. Might not be the least ergonomical design, but not really pleasing to the eye.Technically it's quite a step forward coming from the G3, I think.
Am I seeing the Multi-Format sensor finally approaching the G series?
Entropius: Ugh. $400, for a lens that basically does the same thing as the $80 40-150 f/4-5.6 kit lens that's come with every Olympus camera since the E-510.
That lens, for the non-Four Thirds shooters, is the same size as this one or even a little smaller, focuses pretty quickly, is very sharp at any aperture or focal length, and as its last trick has actually quite nice bokeh.
Yes, you're all right. There have been power zooms before. But I mean Panasonic are first to bring this to a current mirrorless system camera with serious video capability.
Instant playback in review mode like LX-3 - PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!
The motorized Zoom is a worlds first. You will need to pay for this until the competition is there. Power Zoom was actually highly demanded by the video community. Cameras like the GH2, G3 or even GF3 are really serious video cams. So the new lenses will be more then welcome for video enthusiasts. It's really added value.
