New Lensbaby Sweet 35 Optic Gives Dynamic Aperture

Lensbaby sends word of their new Lensbaby "Sweet 35" optic that works with existing optic-swap Lensbaby units and allows photographers the ease of dynamic aperture control. The current optics use the swappable magnetic aperture rings.

Now you can go from f2.5 to f22 by simply rotating the aperture ring and the fin blades adjust accordingly. You can then see the sweet spot of the focus adjust through your viewfinder to insure you get the shot you want.

Olympus Updates the E-PL2 and E-5

Today Olympus announces the release of firmware updates for the E-PL2 and E-5.


Today’s version 1.1 update for the E-PL2 allows for increased control when using the new Add-on Conversion Lenses. The update changes the default setting of the Image Stabilizer to “On” when a photographer selects converter lens scene modes Fisheye (for use in conjunction with Fish-eye Lens Converter FCON-37), Wide-Angle (with Wide-angle Lens Converter WCON-37), and Macro (with Macro Lens Converter MCON-58).


Today’s version 1.1 update for the E-5 ensures that the camera’s LCD monitor’s color compensation will not be automatically reset.

To download and install these firmware updates, simply launch Olympus camera software and connect the camera via USB cable to an internet connected computer. Choose the Update function from the Camera menu in the software and the update for camera bodies, lenses and accessories can be effected.

The ability to update the firmware of E-System and PEN components -- bodies, lenses, flash units -- is one of the key advantages of a 100% digital design. Firmware updates are available through Olympus Master, Olympus Studio and Olympus' standalone firmware updater.
