  1. Disassemble Zuiko 50mm 1.8

    Hi guys, I'm trying to disassemble the front lense from a Zuiko 50mm 1.8; I watched a lot of youtube videos on this topic, but I'm still not able to understand how to do this. I'm fighting with the ring that hold the lense, I don't know how to loose it. Could you please give me some advice?    
  2. Hi, I have a Zhongyi Lens Turbo that fits fine on my Panasonic G6, but I recently noticed that it doesn't attach to my neglected Olympus OM-D E-M5.   It will sit flush in the mount, but then you can't turn it at all to lock it in place, not even a fraction of a mm.    I think i've probably had the Lens Turbo a little too long to return now. It didn't occur to me to test it on the E-M5, as I've been shooting so much with the G6, and it worked fine on that.   Has anyone ever experienced anything like this either with a Lens Turbo, or with other adaptors or lenses?   Should I try to force it? File something down?? Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
  3. Having it sitting for a long time, I said to finally give it a try, as until now it was impossible to get any info about it, or even so to find a video made with this rare beast.  Quick test of the Moller Anamorphot 30/2x, on an Oly E-M1. I have to admit that wasn't that easy to work with it, it's big like an Iscorama, not easy to use just an anamorphic clamp and I always prefer smaller anamorphics to play with, so I don't have the proper rig solution for this Moller. But the image quality that comes out of it, puts it (at least) beside Iscorama. Any comment is welcome, this lens is a miracle:  
  4. Hi guys, I've bought an Olympus OM10 film camera with a 50mm lens. Because I wanted a zoom lens to use with it I got through ebay a sigma 28-80mm f 3.5-4.5 UC zoom. I have just received the lens and I notice that sometimes half of the focus aim inside the viewer gets darker or black. If I'm not wrong it happend too with 50mm lens but then during my photoshots it never happened again. Does anybody knows why this happen?may it be because the camera had no film inside (I was just trying the lens) or because I was in a poor light environment?   Thanks for everything guys!
  5. A short edit from a pure sunny day with talented riders.   Everything shot with the GH3, all Natural -5, -5, 0, -5, 1080p @ 50Mbs MOV I've used Olympus 12mm f2 and 45mm f1.8. Some shots with ETC mode, mostly handheld with the Aputure MagicRig.   Edit in Premiere Pro CS6, some correction with Fast Color Correction.   Your comments are welcome !      
  6. Olympus EM5 body costs: 800€ Panasonic GH3 body costs: 1200€ Both are shooting 60fps both have 16mp sensor.   I believe that Olympus EM5 is the best camera for that price & that  it has the same video quality with the Panasonic GH3 (i am telling that cause i've seen a lot of compares), correct me if i am wrong!   Here is a very nice Olympus EM5 video                   .  
  7. Hi everyone, This is my first real shoot on my new GH3. Report of a very cool snowboard contest in french Alps (Semnoz). Handheld with two prime lenses : Oly 45mm f1.8 and Oly 12mm f2. Edit in Premiere Pro only. Your comments are welcome! I'm a newbie, so I need advices.     Thx
  8. Olympus EM-10 or Panasonic GX7??

    Hi,   So i'm a Canon 5D Mark III owner and i'm looking for a smaller compact camera as a travel camera, B cam and for street photography. I mainly do video, so video features and quality is important but stills is equally important for personal projects if i'm not taking my Canon out.  I've narrowed my choice down to two options - the Oly EM-10 and the Pany GX7. As far as i'm aware the picture quality (in stills) for both cameras is similar. However the GX7 has a 1/8000s mechanical shutter and a silent electronic shutter (which i'm not sure the EM10 has) and I do like the tilting EVF.    The EM10 however has that fantastic IBIS (3 axis not 5 but footage shows it works almost as well). The only thing that is disappointing is the 30p restriction and the video quality/options aren't up to par with the GX7.   Can anyone offer me any advice on which they think is a better choice? Particularly if you own or have used either of these cameras (or even the similar EM-5/EM-1) please share your thoughts/experiences.   Thanks!
  9. Ok to start us off, let me show you a comparison I made between the Olympus PEN E-P5 and the Panasonic GX7   I was wondering if anyone has anything similar for the OMD EM1. I'm really considering getting one in the future because of IBIS, but the EP5's video quality was such a huge letdown (it looked like old camcorder footage) that Im skeptical about if the EM1 can be that much better.

  11. Panny 12-35/2.8 versus Oly 12-40/2.8

    Hi there, I have been looking at these two lenses lately, both very impressive and both rated very closely, as per this report here. I cannot find any other comparison reviews of people who have actually used both. As a GH2/GH3 user I am wondering if there is any disadvantage in going with the Oly; it weighs a good three ounces  more than the Panny, with more fancy lens elements, but don't know if it makes it necessarily superior to the Panny. It certainly 'feels' like a better lens and happens to be much cheaper. Anyone  had experience with both?
  12. https://vimeo.com/71812380     We are very thankfull for John Brawley's first ProRes Files of the Black Magic Pocket Camera. We have decided to use Final Cut X for grading because we want to know how to get some useful pictures in a short time without using a color grading software like DaVinci. Lenses used: SLR Magic 35mm F1,4 Olympus 14-35mm F2,0 Olympus 7-14mm more info mindcutfilms.com/blog  
  13. I just got this lens the other day and noticed that it makes a vey quiet, yet noticeable grinding sound when focusing manually. Is that normal? It also makes a noise when focusing automatically. I have the panasonic shotgun mic attached to the GH3 for audio recording and it definitely picks up the sound. Is my lens defective or is this normal for this lens? I don't notice it on my 17mm or 45mm, but haven't tested. Would love some direction on this.  You can hear it in this video at around the three second mark - small clicking sounds.   https://vimeo.com/61436718
  14. GH2 Mysteron Driftwood Patch ( short )

    [url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9V3npOYaktw&feature=player_detailpage"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9V3npOYaktw&feature=player_detailpage[/url]     This was my first time shooting with my new hack and I really liked the way it handled shadow, color and motion.   While this was a test in a way, it is also a little more than that becasue it includes mood, character and emotion.   Trey
  15. Sony NEX vs Olympus OM-D for amateur video

    I've been really struggling with this choice over the last month. I'm going travelling for a year and want a small but high quality camera to take with me. I take a lot of video, it's literally a function I use every day. I know I will be filming and editing a lot while I'm traveling. I'm hoping that those experienced in video will be able to make my choice easier by recommending one over the other. So, for someone who uses video a lot and does want high quality, the OM-D or a NEX camera?

  17. Olympus E-M5 Hacked?

    43 Rumors [url="http://www.43rumors.com/olympus-e-m5-hack-clean-hdmi-422-and-focus-peaking-possible/"]has an article[/url] about the E-M5 being not only hackable, but hiding a bevy of amazing features. Namely,[list] [*]Focus peaking already exists, it's just turned off. [*]120fps 1080p [*]Clean HDMI 4:2:2 output also already exists... and is turned off. [/list] If these are true, and are actually implementable, I for one would flip my shit. Focus peaking is a killer app for me, but the other two are also highly desirable. The hackers discussion of how difficult Oly is making the process of getting the drivers isn't exactly encouraging, though. One would expect the success of the GH2 [i]because of[/i] its hackability to get through to even the stupidest executive. I guess not. Thoughts?
  18. Hey guys, GH2 owner.. I have seen Rokinon's 7.5mm Fisheye they have for m43'rds and then I saw their 85mm F14 telephoto lens made for 4/3rds (on my wish list) for $300!! http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/769411-REG/Rokinon_85M_O_85mm_f_1_4_Aspherical_Lens.html So I decided to take a look at their site and find out they have some also a 24mm F1.4 lens for $800.. I know its not as popular as the Voig F0.95 http://www.rokinon.com/product.php?id=191 Furthermore, they even have CINE lenses coming soon, including a 8mm HD Fisheye T lenses http://www.rokinon.com/product.php?id=206 and 35mm T1.5 CINE lens for Canon (for now hopefully).. http://www.rokinon.com/product.php?id=202 under $600 !!!!!! deal or no deal?? Wanted to get other people feedback about Rokinon and their come up with lens for both photographers and now cinematographers...
  19. Hi I am not using my Olympus 45mm a lot because of problems with my follow focus. Lens is almost new and has been used just a couple of times. [b] [size=5][b]Olympus[/b] M.Zuiko Digital Telefotolens - [b]45 mm[/b] - F/1.8 - Micro Four Thirds[/size][/b] Its a great lens but it is just to small for on my rig. I want to try the Samyang 35mm f1.4 (Canon mount please) and i am willing to trade my Olympus lens. Or sell it.... Ofcourse i know the Samyang costs more (new) so make me a offer :)
