When the Canon 5D mkII burst onto the scene in 2008, it was nothing short of a revelation for video shooters. I never use the term game changer, but the 5D mkII truly was. Canon added video recording after a request by AP and Reuters for a camera that was capable of shooting both stills and video. Little did they know that this small addition to a stills camera would change our industry forever.
The size and weight of this camera and 30 MP will find its way to be the perfect companion to many out there! It lives just perfectly between the 1DX MKII and 5DS/R … A little BEAST!
If you’re interested in coaxing more detail from the camera, a new Dual Pixel RAW mode lets you shoot RAW files that are two times the size of a standard 5D Mark IV file. The files must be processed using Canon’s Digital Photo Professional software and Canon says the Dual Pixel RAW mode is good for enhancing images taken at wide apertures.
The camera’s 30.4 megapixel 35mm Full Frame Canon CMOS sensor offers stunning image quality while the DIGIC 6+ Image Processor delivers 4K 30P video and up to and seven frames per second (fps) continuous shooting. To make video shooting even easier, the camera also features Canon’s propriety Dual Pixel CMOS AF, even when shooting 4K to help ensure sharp focus and subject tracking

If you take a look at Fujifilm’s history of cameras, you get a sense of a company that sees photography not only as a technological endeavor but also an artistic one
Emmanuel’s insights have convinced me that the X-T2 is one of the hottest cameras to watch so far this year. The samples online using Fuji’s own Film Emulation modes already show how good the camera will be for casual use, or professional shooting where grading is not desirable.
It’s a very attractive camera for those of us who used to shoot Leicas or for those who shoot small mirrorless cameras but want that large format look. But ouch that price – even though it’s miles cheaper than the Hasselblad H6D with the same 50mp sensor (and many miles cheaper than the 100mp version,) it’s still a lot of money for this niche camera.
The goal wasn’t to build a camera that users would use in lieu of the H6D or other medium format backs but one that would tempt mirrorless shooters to step up to medium format, he says. “This gives them a way to buy a medium format camera that looks and feels like a compact camera.”
The X1D sports a 50-megapixel medium format CMOS image sensor (43.8mm x 32.9 ) with 14 stops of dynamic range, 14-bit color and an ISO range of 100-12,800 (expandable to 25,600). It’s housed in a compact, lightweight body that promises to handle more like an advanced compact camera than a bulky medium format body.
Previous rumors stated the camera would have a built-in viewfinder, and that’s confirmed in these leaked photos. Other rumored specs were a 50-megapixel sensor (which makes sense now) and the fact that the camera was to be mirrorless (also confirmed now).
Literally everything I threw at this camera, is handled it with confidence…leaving me to believe, that this is the best DSLR ever made.
When we re-started Meyer Optik we looked at the different lenses. The challenge was to use modern materials, but maintain the historic charm of the lens. The most obvious case is the “soap bubble bokeh,” which made the Trioplan lenses famous. So we figured that by meeting this challenge we would prove to be the truthful successor of the former Meyer Optik’s works
In the latest installment of “crazy photography innovation to cross our desks,” let us introduce you to the “sheet camera” by the engineers at Columbia University. This flexible camera array lets you change field of view by simply bending it.
The Lytro Cinema camera gathers a truly staggering amount of information on the world around it. The 755 RAW megapixel 40K resolution, 300 FPS camera takes in as much as 400 gigabytes per second of data.
The DL18-50 has an 18-50mm equivalent lens with an aperture of f/1.8-2.8 throughout the zoom range. It uses Nikon’s Nano Crystal Coat to help reduce ghosting and flare and accepts 46mm filters.
