It’s look as if Metabones will release a new adaptor in August that will allow your micro 4/3 cameras to adopt Canon EF via an electronic speedbooster.
If you’re like myself who is a Canon shooter with a large EF lens collection, this is fantastic news. The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera, Panasonic GH2, GH3 will now electronically except EF mount lenses, whilst increasing the sensor’s field of view, added sharpness and light sensitivity.
Well, what can I say, it’s getting ridiculous with all the new cameras, it really is. My advice: Don’t buy a camera, there’ll be a new one tomorrow. Rent it, it’s cheaper!
The Panasonic GH2 and its hacked version has been extremely popular among indie filmmakers. Now let’s see if the GH3 is a worthy successor.
The first thing that stands out is the uncompressed hdmi out signal, which means you’ll be able to record the feed externally in better quality via a disk recorder like the Atomos’.
