    Olympus EM1-X Rumor

    In 43rumors, "a source" is claiming 0,3 to 0,5 stops performance ahead of a D500, over a half stop better then the E-M1 MK II, video specs on par with the GH5s including low light, 10 bit internal recording, best EVF in industry withou blackouts, C-AF tracking as good or better than the Sony A9. I want the drugs that this guy is using, must be amazing.

    EOSHD Opinion - The Sony A6400 is an absolute turkey

    All my friends that are consulting me about cameras are asking for camera to vlogging, tutorials or to film their kids. None for stills - these usually buy a Canon T5/T6 or a Nikon D3xxx/Dxxxx with a kit lens, without asking. And for the first group, the most wanted feature is good AF - never even consider to use manual AF. If Sony nailed it in the A6400, they could have a very good seller (external mic could be used with a bracket without covering the screen - and a lot of vloggers use lavaliers).

    Sharp's new 8K M43 camera

    In fact, a m4/3 camera that could be switchable between low light 10mp /4k mode and high-res 40mp / 8k mode would be perfect for me. Even more if some 20mp mode could be implemented with good interpolation.

    Mean IQ Of dpreview Members?

    Was just a joke, Snowbro. Never thought that you would that seriously.

    Mean IQ Of dpreview Members?

    Call them again and say that you are a very active member of the HK forum. Probably your package will be delivered very fast after it.

    Vintage lens color cast

    There was a Ikea LED lamp (JANSJÖ lamp) that reportedly clears most of the yellow tint of some thorium lenses. Since we don't have Ikea in Brazil, got a chinese Led bulb with the same leds, and tried with my Canon FD 35mm f/2 SSC. Did not take away all the yellow cast, but I can say that removed like 90% of it. It is better than put it on the sun - even wrapping the lens in foil, the heat could bring some problems.

    Honest Zhiyun Weebill Review

    I think that most gimbal manufacturers have very poor operational / app instructions. Don't know about the Weebill, but have a Crane M and now a Feiyutech A1000 and their instructions are both terrible - and missing crucial features. When first using the A1000, even balancing perfectly the gimbal, the camera starts shaking with a minimal gimbal movement and never stops. Saw a lot of similar remarks online. But one person said that it an initial shake is normal - is a gimbal feature to measure the camera weight and auto-adjust the strenght of the motors; but it have just to do it in start, and about 1 second max. With this information, entered in the Feiyu app to see how the motors were calibrated and found a disabled checkbox (do not remember now the label), related to it. Marked the checkbox, and after that the gimbal was rock solid both with a GX85 or with a DSLR (put my S5Pro just to check it). The gimbal shakes briefly at the start, and after that works perfectly. And this checkbox was not mentioned anywhere in the Feiyu documentation.

    Want gimbal free stabilized recording

    About these little motorized dollies, another option is the Kingjoy PPL 06s; it does not have the remote control of the Andoer L4, but have more speed options. Have one, but did not had time to test it properly: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Kingjoy-PPL-06S-Mini-Motorized-Electric-Track-Slider-Motor-Dolly-Truck-3-Wheel-Car-Slider-for/32828124306.html?spm=2114.search0104.3.21.fec846ca3aa6p3&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_3_10065_10068_10547_319_5730915_317_10548_10696_453_10084_454_10083_10618_10307_538_537_536_5729815_10059_10884_10887_100031_321_322_10103,searchweb201603_51,ppcSwitch_0&algo_expid=d3047a79-e8f3-400c-9b8a-3ab04951e85c-3&algo_pvid=d3047a79-e8f3-400c-9b8a-3ab04951e85c&transAbTest=ae803_3

    Honest Zhiyun Weebill Review

    The Fstoppers review says that the gimbal is very good - but you need to balance it very well, or it behaves poorly. https://fstoppers.com/originals/fstoppers-reviews-zhiyun-tech-weebill-lab-gimbal-imperfect-brilliant-321196
  10. But right after this I've checked the Viltrox site (looking for older firmware to try a downgrade) and saw that they released the v3.2 of the Ef-M2 firmware last week - which solve this exactly problem. Now it works perfectly with the E-M10 III (tried with the EF 100-300mm 4.5-5.6, which is not in the compatibility list).
  11. But more problematic news: Viltrox EF-M2 does not work at all with the E-M10 III if you intend to use electronic EF lenses. WIthout a lens or with a lens, the camera shows just a black screen in the LCD or EVF, and does not take pictures. It is a firmware problem - if you cover the adapter contacts with tape, it works (of course without communication). Search the web and found that it is a known issue, Viltrox is aware, but no solution until now. (the adapter / lens worked perfectly in my GX85).
  12. Adding to the prior post: the Zhongyi Lens Turbo II EOS to m43 fits without problems.
  13. A warning about the camera: the EVF hump is very close to the mount in the front of the camera, and some adapters / focal reducers could not have room to fit. The Viltrox EF-M2 enter tight, the Zhongyi Lens Turbo (FD to m43) did not enter at all.
  14. About cameras: had the E-M5II and now recently got a E-M10 III (have a GX85 too) - did not have much time to play with it (2 month baby in house...), but I can already say that the E-M10 III video is far superior; not only is 4K, but do not have the previous Olympus codec problems (when shooting very busy image, like a bunch of trees with leaves blown by the wind, the codec breaks - very visible in the E-M5 I and sometimes on the II). And the 4k is not cropped, as Andrew noted in its review (and I can confirm it). For stills, it have some limitations (some resources dumbed in firmware), but for video, except not having highlights / shadows limits alert on screen in video mode, it's a VERY good camera.

    Panasonic Abandoning M43

    Nope, the GX9 is an upgraded GX85, far from being the "top rangefinder" from Panasonic like the GX7 was on it's time. The perfect GX9 would be an improved GX7 body, or a little smaller GX8 body, with the G9 internals (I could live without the top LCD), with a 1000-1100 price tag. Had bought it in a heartbeat.
