Autofocus speed is a blazing 0.06 seconds, and the focusing system has “whisper quiet” autofocus that pairs well with Fuji’s latest “silent shutter” firmware updates
The VR Sport mode is designed specifically for situations in which a photographer needs to pan the camera, much like the Image Stabilizer Mode 2 on Canon lenses:
I really like the Fuji X-T1. There must be a reason this camera has received so much attention and fanfare from the media and users. The simple reason? It is a camera done right. Fuji is a camera company that has listened to its customers. The X system has evolved over the years and with each iteration the system has incrementally improved to the benefit of the enduser – the photographer.
The first part of the test compared large/medium format film with medium format digital, and a subsequent part was a comparison of high end DSLRs using the Nikon D800E.
The results may surprise a few people.
This post will deal with the cameras. The next post will be about lenses. The final post will be about accessories and my thoughts on this system vs. other systems. I’d do it all in one post but this would be one long ass post. Might as well break it up a bit.
In the meantime this may be a golden age for camera purchasers. The quality and variety are high. Competition is keeping up pressure on the manufacturers to keep prices down. It can’t last.
So here’s the deep dark secret about rangefinders (Leica fanboys might not want to click past the break):
…Most people don’t like ’em.
The a7 II’s showcase feature is the brand new 5-axis sensor shift image stabilisation system. Similar to the system in the Olympus EM5 micro four-thirds camera, the a7 II has a sensor that moves to compensate for different kinds of camera shake. Check out the video below to see how it works:
This Sony RX100 III is an amazing little camera. If this camera had been in my possession 4yrs ago, it would have been the penultimate camera of the time able to compete with even the then high end DSLRs.
This year’s graphic covers more bases, including computer theft, action cam theft, and even the regions where photo gear theft is most prevalent.
The invitation-only program costs $100 a year and requires ownership of at least two full-frame bodies and at least three Sony Zeiss or G Series lenses, as well as proof of professional status.
As you can probably surmise, not all card readers are the same. Some have better components and faster chips, which results in significant time savings. Quantifying this time was our key goal in testing a number of card readers on the market.
UK magazine Amateur Photographer used a still taken from a 4K video captured on a Lumix GH4 as its cover shot last month (below), to show that the ‘format is capable of producing images that we’re happy to use to sell magazines on a news-stand’.
This tracks with previous reports that claimed the camera would take after the Mamiya 7 II, and lends further credence to Sony’s promise to deliver unique, innovative products in 2015.
If you turn on the Wi-Fi capabilities of the D750, you have to make sure you setup a password for the wireless network, otherwise anyone with a smart device can access and download your pictures. The original AP report is misleading and confusing.
In the usual Photokina binge of “really interesting stuff” I think the Canon G7 X rather got lost
