Things aren’t looking good for the standalone point-and-shoot camera. As smartphone cameras continue to improve, compact camera sales continue to nosedive. A new historical sales chart with 2016 figures shows just how quickly point-and-shoots are dying off.
In our February “Exposures” story about Richard Mosse’s new film and book, “Incoming,” Mosse spoke about why he decided to use a thermal imaging camera in order to create a body of work about the refugee crisis.

Light—the makers of the 16-module L16 camera that purports to put 52-megapixel DSLR quality in your pocket—get a lot of questions about how exactly their wonder-cam will work. So they made a video that explains it in plain English.
Rewriting the meaning of the ‘decisive moment’
Sony has just announced its latest Cyber-shot RX camera, and this one’s a doozy. The new Sony RX100 V boasts the world’s fastest AF speed, the world’s fastest continuous shooting, and the world’s most AF points for a compact camera.
The Kano Camera Kit has pieces that are snapped together to form a 5-megapixel camera. Pieces like the “single-board computer brain,” flash, trigger, battery, and lens. It’s “a bit like Lego,” Kano tells PetaPixel.
Maybe I am just getting older, but this Photokina wore me out far more than previous Photokinas. I arrived on Monday, September 19th and headed home on Saturday, September 24th. I am still trying to wrap my head around this show, but it was quite different than I anticipated. Strangely, there was a lack of excitement in the air. As expected, the Fuji X-T2 and GFX were the talk of the town; rightly so, when you consider what Fuji has accomplished this year.
With Photokina coming to a close this weekend, we decided we should look through all of the new product announcements, and highlight our favorite announcements from this year’s giant trade show.

Fujifilm made a bombshell announcement in the camera world today by officially revealing the development of its new medium format mirrorless camera. The GFX 50S, the first camera in the new GFX line, is a 51.4 megapixel medium format mirrorless camera.
The first model is the GFX 50S will use a new, Fuji-developed 51.4-megapixel image sensor that measures in at 43.8mm x 32.9mm. It’s a mirrorless camera that will accept new “G-Mount” lenses. It will support several image formats including 4:3 (default), 3:2, 1:1, 4:5, 6:7 and 6:17.
