The Panasonic 14-50mm f/2.8-3.5 Leica D Vario-Elmarit Aspherical MEGA O.I.S. Lens is an interchangeable bright standard-zoom lens, developed by Leica exclusively for digital SLR cameras, and follows the Four Thirds Standard. This means that the lens is also interchangeable with other manufacturers that use this format.
With a bright maximum aperture of f/2.8 and the incorporated MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer), this lens makes it possible - without using a tripod - to capture clear, sharp images even in macro shooting or low-lit situations. This provides users with more shooting flexibility. In addition, the lens maximizes this advantage by incorporating Panasonic's Venus Engine PLUS LSI into the lens.
Two large-diameter aspherical lenses help the lens meet Leica's extremely high optical performance standards. They help capture images that are clear from corner to corner across the entire zoom range, with minimal distortion.
Multi-coated lens elements reduce ghosting and flare to an absolute minimum, enabling the lens to deliver an optical performance that meets Leica's lofty standards.
The included aperture ring, in addition to the zoom and focus rings, provides users with the kind of easy, pleasant, intuitive operation offered by familiar film cameras.
7-blade circular aperture diaphragm produces brilliant out-of-focus characteristics.
Use of the Four Thirds Standard means that this lens can also be used with other manufacturers that have adopted this digital camera standard.
Hacked Firmware for high data rate, less compression.
The high speed Live MOS Sensor realizes burst shooting in 16.05-megapixel full resolution at 5 fps with mechanical shutter and even 40 fps in 4-megapixel recording mode. The DMC-GH2 also features fast, accurate Light Speed AF. The DMC-GH2 employs an 18.31 mega total pixel sensor. Using only about a 16.05-megapixel area of sensor makes it possible to give three aspect ratios – 16:9, 3:2, and 4:3 – the same angle of view. The image processing LSI, Venus Engine FHD assures high picture quality in both photo and movie recording.
The DMC-GH2 can record high-resolution full-HD 1,920 x 1,080 50i movies in AVCHD format. Sensor output is 50p. High quality sound can be recorded with Dolby Digital Stereo Creator. In addition, the DMC-GH2 has a wide range of movie modes including Manual Movie Mode, 24P Cinema Mode with 23Mbps, Variable Movie Mode and iA Mode. When the DMC-GH2 is connected to a Panasonic VIERA via an optional mini HDMI cable, the TV's remote control unit can be used to enjoy playing back with greater convenience.
The DMC-GH2 adopts touch-control shooting. While shooting, AF can be set at the desired part of the frame with just a touch. You can also operate the AF and shutter release at the same time. While playing back, you can quickly select an image to view by scrolling images. The 3.0-inch 460,000-dot free-angle LCD with a touch-screen operation makes both monitoring and touching at any physical position. In addition, the Double Live-View function offered by the free-angle LCD and 1,533,600-dot Multi Aspect Wide Screen LVF (Live View Finder).
The My Color Mode and Film Mode featuring new Cinema Mode make it easy to customise colour effects to match your preference. In still image recording, the Peripheral Defocus Mode automatically adjusts the focus to match the AF area you positioned while gently defocusing the foreground and background to emphasize the subject. In movie recording, Variable Movie Mode records movie in slow or quick. When the LUMIX G 12.5mm / F12 is attached, the DMC-GH2 can shoot 3D images. To view the recorded images, simply connect the DMC-GH2 to 3D VIERA televisions.
The iA Mode, featuring Intelligent D-Range Control and advanced Intelligent Resolution technology, serves as a combination of functions that makes it easy for anyone to get beautiful photos and movies. With the advanced Intelligent Resolution technology, 3 areas – outlines, detailed texture areas and soft gradation areas – are detected. Apart from the uniform enhancement of sharpness, this technology precisely performs signal processing pixel by pixel in most effective way according to the area. As a result, images are clear and crisp.
Samyang Optics 16mm T2.2 VDLSR ED AS UMC CS II is a wide angle manual focus cine lens designed for APS-C sensor sizes.
Samyang 16mm T2.2 VDLSR ED AS UMC CS II is carefully designed for professional film and video works in APS-C sensor sizes. The focus gear ring is installed for professional follow focus system. You may change the aperture quietly and smoothly with the uncoupled aperture gear ring. The T number guiding the actual amount of light transmission and distance scales are marked on both sides of the lens to film much precisely. The lens operates in manual aperture system with low T number which enables natural shooting under various light exposure circumstances.
This lens features 13 lenses in 11 groups including 1 hybrid aspherical lens (H-ASP), 1 glass aspherical lens (ASP) and 1 extra low dispersion lenses (ED). H-ASP and ASP lenses minimize color aberration to realize exceptional image quality and high contrast for center and corner of image even when aperture is fully opened. ED lens of 16mm T2.2 II effectively controls the light dispersion to prevent flare and ghost. Ultra Multi Coating (UMC) technology of Samyang Optics optimizes the light penetration to also minimize flare and ghost.
The frame of Samyang 16mm T2.2 II is compact and solid since it is made of high-strength aluminum alloy so trustworthy images can be captured even under inferior environment. Also, detachable petal-shaped lens hood shelter the lens from unnecessary lights.
Available for camera mount: Nikon.
