In this video, Mia McCormick, from the Kelby Media Group, speaks to Mathew Frazer, from Panasonic, about the new HC-W850 camcorder, which features two built-in cameras, and the ability to capture two angles at once.
The new GM1 and the GH3 were the stars of the Panasonic booth today, and in this video, David Flores and Panasonic's own Mark Toal take a close look at the brand new GM1. It's definitely the smallest Micro Four Thirds camera around, which makes it a convenient option for the average user who wants better image quality.
This week in the news: Lots of new products came out from NAB 2012. Canon, Nikon, Samsung and more announced lots of new goodies for videographers and photographers alike. Plus, Think Tank announced a brand new bag, and a new line of colors.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 is the smallest and lightest Micro Four Thirds, mirrorless, interchangeable-lens camera in the world. The 12MP live MOS sensor is sensitive to 6400 ISO, and now with the DMC-GF2, you can shoot full 1080 HD video with stereo sound.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH27 is a 16-Megapixel point-and-shoot camera with a CCD sensor that's sensitive to ISO 1600. The DMC-FH27 has a Leica 8x lens that zooms from 28 to 224mm equivalent and it captures 720p HD video.
For those of you that have never visited the B&H SuperStore, you're in luck. Each week we'll feature photos of a different department or section in order for you to get to know us a bit better. This week, we are showing off the Pro Video Counter located on the first floor. The Pro Video counter features a slew of camcorders on display for you to test out. This, combined with the friendly aid of our experts, helps you make the right choice.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC FX-75 has a 14MP CCD sensor and an F/2.2 Leica Summicron lens with a 5x Zoom, for an equivalent 24-120mm lens. Because the FX-75 features such a bright and fast Leica lens, F/2.2 is almost two stops faster than most of the point and shoots—so you know this camera was designed to shoot with available light.
Regardless of the focal length of your favorite lens, I'd venture to say you've been in situations where you've tried to focus in tight on your subject and inevitably hit the wall—the minimum focus point of your lens. Sure you can crop, but in a perfect world it would be swell if each of our lenses would focus as close to our subjects as our mind's eye focuses. Alas, the world isn't perfect... but we do have macro lenses.
