Photokina 2016 Final Show Report

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.

FUJIFILM GFX 50S – The Medium Format Market Gets Interesting

At first glance, the big news here is the scale of Fuji’s commitment to the platform.  This is no single-camera flash in the pan.  The GFX was announced with !SIX! (count’em, six) lenses, an interchangeable finder, and a reference to the GFX 50s being the “first” camera in line.

Photokina 2016: Fujifilm Goes Medium Format with GFX Series

GFX Front 63mm

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.

Adobe’s Lightroom camera now lets you shoot in raw from your iPhone like a pro

Apple’s built-in Camera app doesn’t allow you to shoot in raw even as an option, but iOS 10 makes it possible for third-party apps that want the option. The only requirement is that you have an iPhone on iOS 10 with a 12MP iSight camera. That should qualify the iPhone SE, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models

5 Myths of Digital Photography

Myths and misconceptions persist because they’re either compelling or no one bothers to correct them. For photographers, many myths of digital photography arose when trying to draw imperfect analogies to film photography. Given the complex physics behind digital imaging, it’s not totally surprising that some myths persist, but here are a few you might want to be aware of.

Good while it lasted: does the Canon 5D mkIV mark the end of DSLR video?

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 New Workhorse: Meet the Canon 5D Mark IV

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.

Canon Announces the EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR

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
