What Digital Camera event in Brighton

What Digital Camera magazine has an Olympus event in Brighton planned for Friday 25th and Saturday 26th May. It's free but there is a selection process for the limited number of 32 places. Follow the link below for more details:

I'm hoping to be there!

Re: What Digital Camera event in Brighton

Hmm, they are showing a brand new non announced lens? Not the 60mm macro or the 75mm biggie because they have already been announced.

Time to start some rumours:

150mm f2 pro grade?

25mm f0.95?

the 14-35 f2 for m4/3

MFT 14-35 f/2 - YES PLEASE

I'd have really liked to have been a part of this but no point in entering as I couldn't make the dates anyway

Re: What Digital Camera event in Brighton

I understand the event is fully booked now. I will almost certainly be there on the Saturday - is anyone else from here going to be there?

So the mystery lens that will be shown at the Brighton event is the new 75mm f/1.8 although it's only a pre-production sample so users will be told they can't publish any pictures taken with it!

Re: What Digital Camera event in Brighton

On my way to Brighton by train this bright sunny morning :-)

Have got the Pen Pal Bluetooth adapter with me and will post some photos using this via my smartphone during the day.

Re: What Digital Camera event in Brighton

Why are none of these events ever held oop North?

Do they forget that there are photographers north of the Watford Gap?

Re: What Digital Camera event in Brighton

Am back home now after a very long day. Looking at my shots transferred from the E-M5 via Pen Pal Bluetooth adapter to my smartphone and then resized and uploaded, over Mobile Data to the gallery, the sharpness is not really there. I'll re-do them from RAW files tomorrow using Lightroom.

Had more time using the 75mm f/1.8 but I still can't show you any shots because Olympus has asked me not to until I get a production sample in a couple of weeks.

Re: What Digital Camera event in Brighton

I've now produced a version of one of my shots from yesterday processed from RAW in Lightroom and here is how it compares to the version processed in my Samsung Galaxy Note:


From RAW in Lightroom


Processed in the phone.

I think I know which I prefer!

Re: What Digital Camera event in Brighton

They are fairly close (on my uncalibrated laptop) but I can see more contrast in the first one.

I would expect to only ever use wireless to provide thumbnail (iPad res) images for people to view in the same way we used to show "Proofs".

It's interesting how wireless connectivity has rapidly gained favour. I can't help but feel that the "marketing men" are pushing it hard.
