The PDN PhotoPlus Expo took place in New York City, and B&H was everywhere. We were exhibitors at the show (booth #455), and we posted a storm of show updates on B&H Insights, Twitter and Instagram. There was a bunch of compelling new products on display at the show, so we've rounded up the most interesting highlights in this post.
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: Lumix announced the new DMC-FZ70 digital camera; a new Magic Lantern function adds 14 stops of dynamic range to the Canon 5D Mark III and 7D for stills and video; Apple released their long-awaited Logic Pro X music-production software; and over a dozen cameras received software updates.
This is your B&H Photo Pulse News Roundup for July 19, 2013. Be sure to follow us on Twitter for the latest news as it breaks.
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 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.
Professionals tend to expect more from the tools they use. They expect them to perform reliably, accurately and smoothly on good days and bad. On top of all that, they expect their tools to feel proper, secure and "right" in the hand. And these very same folk often have the same expectations when it comes to pedestrian items. We'd like to talk about a half-dozen point-and-shoot digital cameras that should appeal to serious-minded shooters seeking a pocket-sized camera that feels and performs like a "real" camera.
This is the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5. With an f/2.0 Leica DC Vario Summicron lens and a 3.8x zoom from 24 to 90mm, this Panasonic camera will enable you to capture outstanding images in almost every lighting situation you can imagine.
