Olympus Visionary Adrian Rohnfelder Hands-On Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II

Adrian Rohnfelder has taken his Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II too some of the most extreme places on planet earth. As a photographer that likes to capture volcanos he often holds his cameras over lava that is too hot to shoot directly. He seems pretty impressed with the capabilities of the camera and has lots of great shots in extreme conditions ranging from lava to waterfalls to icebergs.

Panasonic PhotoPlus Expo 2016 Coverage

TheCameraProject interviewed Panasonic about the new LX10, FZ2500, G85 and GH5. It’s interesting that the Panasonic FZ2500 is being talked about like a camcorder throughout it’s presentation, but beyond that it’s a basic run down. Panasonic still does not have working GH5s to show the public yet.

Cameta Camera also has a similar interview with Panasonic that goes into a little more detail about the LX10 and FZ2500. It’s nice that the ND filter in the Panasonic FZ2500 is glass instead of the plastic film filters found inside of most cameras.

Cameta Camera also did an individual video about the Panasonic G85 and we get to see the new shutter from the G85, which doesn’t have a spring so it should be more durable and shutter shock will be eliminated by the new design.

The Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II and YI CEO

It looks like we are going to start getting more than marketing videos about the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II. Photographers Olympus selected from the Visionary Program are now able to talk about the OM-D E-M1 Mark II. The new OM-D and YI M1 cameras were the two hottest things at photokina this year in the world of m43. It’s really a shame that the Panasonic GH5 isn’t further along, but hopefully we will hear more about it soon.
