In the usual Photokina binge of “really interesting stuff” I think the Canon G7 X rather got lost
At one point in time, Fuji and Kodak were major competitors. We all know what happened to Kodak. Fuji on the other hand, did something we were all taught to do but sometimes forget: they listened. They listened to their customers, they got to know the photography business and they allowed some very passionate and creative people to create a very innovative camera system that over the last 4 years has been maturing at an unparalleled pace
Canon today announced that it is developing a new-concept photo-storage device, tentatively called the Cross Media Station, which will enable users to easily enjoy high-image-quality photos and movies captured by digital cameras
Panasonic unveiled the Lumix CM1: a 4.7-inch Android smartphone built around a 1-inch image sensor and 28mm equivalent f/2.8 Leica lens
by the looks of it, the GX 7 will indeed compete with (and possibly beat out) the Sony and the other high-end, 1-inch sensor compacts out there
Beyond 4K video recording, the LX100 looks to be fast too, with a burst mode of 11fps. It uses the same contrast AF sensor that’s found in the GH4 which, along with the company’s Depth from Defocus technology, gives the LX100 the ability to lock AF in .14 seconds and track AF during 5fps burst shooting. Native ISO ranges from 200-25,600 and can be pushed down to 100.
I’m going to keep banging this medium format drum. Why? Because life without medium format sucks. Maybe I’m just crazy, but I want my local restaurants back. I want more options on the table. I want this Bronica on my desk to be digital and I can’t, for the life of me, figure out why no one has done it yet. We are 15+ years into the digital photography revolution and medium format options keep getting smaller instead of larger. Someone needs to step into this game and shake it up.
Full-frame freedom, outstanding agility and the convenience of built-in Wi-Fi
Situated between the D610 and D810, the D750 will have several firsts for Nikon’s full frame lineup including a new 24.3-megapixel CMOS sensor, Wi-Fi capability, a vari-angle LCD and a new build that makes it the thinnest DSLR in the company’s lineup.
But I think it’s a sleeper feature, and will prove to be one of the growing list of reasons Fuji users tend to connect so strongly with their cameras.
Where the X100T makes its mark is in the Advanced Hybrid Viewfinder featuring ‘world’s first’ electronic rangefinder capabilities, an updated LCD screen, updated ergonomics/external controls, and a new ‘Classic Chrome’ film simulation mode
I have had a pre-production copy of the new Fuji X100T for a week and I have been putting it through the paces to find out how much this camera has evolved since the first X100 was introduced at Photokina in 2010
The Otus 1.4/85 will be available worldwide with the F-mount (ZF.2) or EF-mount (ZE) from mid-September. The expected recommended retail price is €3,360.50* or US$ 4,490* (excl. VAT).
Over the past 18 months I have found myself coming back from my overseas travels with an eagerness to get to my office / studio to process and print some of these files at 30×40” just to see how they look. These prints remind me of when I was learning how to print in the darkroom, watching in awe, as a print would come to life in front of my eyes. I feel that same sense of excitement when I see these prints coming off my wide format Canon printer. The immense sense of accomplishment and pride that I feel makes all of the effort worthwhile.
200MP files thanks to Hassy’s proprietary Multi-Shot technology that combines as many as 6 shots into one
So rather than restrict this year’s version to what we traditionally think of as point and shoot cameras (do they even exist?), we let the pros chime in with any type of non-DSLR that they use.
