In Topic: Dome options for Olympus 8mm???

07 October 2016 - 09:39 AM

I was considering this until I learned the 180mm Dome $1050 + N85 to N120 port adaptor $420 + zoom gears $200 +$175 = $1.8K? on top of the $1300 lens.


I know. I have it all. ;-)


For the 8 mm:


36056   175,-

36617   180,-

36048   900,-


Total 1255,- I also have that. :-p


If you exclude the ability to zoom the difference is 1255 vs 1600. But as I said the 180 mm is far easier for over/under shoots. But the 140 mm also improves much over the smaller plexiglass versions which are almost impossible to use in that regard.

Then get the 7-14 mm in the 180 mm glas dome. Superior for split shoots.

 I know their IS is the top of the industry, so that itself could be a good reason to switch over from either Panasonic, or even for Sony people.


Panasonics IBIS seems to be equally good or better in the recent offerings.

Looks promising. But I don't think I'll be pre-ordering - just yet. There are still a few unknowns which I had hoped would be mentioned yesterday.
Apart from your list:

  • V-LOG (rumours from the floor - it will be paid upgrade again)
  • Crop Factor in 4K modes (no mention)
  • It will require the newer UHS-II Type cards (looks like they tried to cover that sticker up and failed.)
  • No word on compression
  • Dynamic range / Better low light

A crop in 4k is unlikely as the announcement includes a full frame photo ready out mode called 6k photo.

Therese is strong reason to belive that the multi aspent ratio sensor design from GH2 is back. Your shoots Will be wider than ever.
