The Nikon P1000 is the Most Fun I’ve Had with a New Camera in Years

With over ten years as a professional photographer, I don't really get the 'GAS' (Gear Acquisition Syndrome) like I used to. I've become pretty content with the gear I've acquired over the years, and so new purchases have become more about the marginal up

For those who are unfamiliar, the Nikon P1000 is essentially Nikon’s answer to all the amateur photography forum questions asking “If you could have one lens, what would it be?” If you’ve ever stumbled into one of these conversations, you’ll see that it’s a flood of people saying something to the effect of “a 10-2000mm f/2.8 lens”. While a lens of that stature would be impossible both optically and in weight, someone at Nikon was seemingly watching these forums, waiting to pitch their next crazy idea at the next board meeting.

Zeiss ZX1 hands-on pictures and interview – sonyalpharumors sonyalpharumors

The new Zeiss ZX1 is in many ways a very bizarre camera. But what I like about it is that Zeiss definitely did think out of the box!  Integrated Lightroom, direct internet connection, large touchscreen operations, 512GB SSD and minimalistic design. I sincerely thanks Zeiss for trying to find new ways to re-think a camera. Maybe Sony can take 1-2 ideas from Zeiss? I would love to be able to run apps like lightroom on my camera and send the photos directly to my google backup or Flickr account!
