Photography has been around for almost 200 years, believe it or not, and with every generation the art form evolves and changes. Everything from styles and fads to technology and world events have affected how photography has advanced over the decades, but what's going on today in 2019?
When the Sony a9 first came out, it was hailed as a massive step forward and a challenger of Canon's flagship 1D X Mark II and Nikon's flagship D5 at a lower price than both. And although it looked amazing on paper and in early reviews, questions about its longevity remained. After almost two years, this great video discusses how the a9 has fared over the long-term.
Canon’s flagship APS-C DSLR, the 7D Mark II, is long overdue for an overhaul, and all of the speculation for 2019 was that its successor, the 7D Mark III, would soon be announced. Rumors now suggest that it will be merged with the 80D, with an EOS R in the pipeline to take its place.
Are you looking for a new flash and intrigued by the Profoto A1? Maybe you’ve seen the internet rumblings about Godox’s V1 light and the alleged backdoor drama between the two lighting companies and wondered if this new light beats the top priced flash? Which round flash is the best bang for the buck and should you switch or stick with your square flash?
2019 certainly seems to the year for f/0.95 standard lenses. Shortly after fans were teased with Nikon’s Noctilux at the CP+ event in Japan, bokeh geeks (bokeeks?) were treated with an announcement from Zenit, and now Chinese lens maker ZY Optics has launched the Mitakon Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95 Mark III for Sony E, Canon RF, and Nikon Z mounts.
