Nikon recently brought raw video to the Z 6 and Z 7 mirrorless cameras, a huge step forward for filmmakers working with the cameras. However, the feature is not free, and you might be wondering if the upgrade is worth it for your own work. This excellent video discusses the new capabilities.
The resolution of camera sensors is still increasing. Over the last decade it has grown from 3 megapixels to 50 megapixels and more. At first the increase in resolution was a significant one, but not anymore. Do we really need more resolution than the cameras that hit the market today?
Sigma was expected to announce a new full-frame mirrorless L mount camera with its unique Foveon sensor later this month, but unfortunately, the company has announced that the camera will now be delayed indefinitely. Nonetheless, they still intend to release the camera eventually, albeit with a complete redesign.
The X100 series of cameras have been my favorite for quite some time now. I first fell in love with this series when I bought the X100T. This camera was with me at all times, and I took so many personally, meaningful images with it. The only reason why I sold it was so that I could buy the X100F. Now, Fujifilm has recently announced its successor, the X100V.
Canon has been pushing the boundaries of lens design with many of their new RF mirrorless lenses, and while they are certainly quite impressive, some photographers just want more traditional workhorse lenses they can rely on. If you are one of those photographers, you should check out this great review of the Canon RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM lens.
5G, the fifth generation of cellular wireless technology, is currently in the process of being rolled out, and it promises blazing fast speeds that rival some of the fastest hard-wired connections. And that has me excited, as it could significantly change the way photographers work.
Sigma has always made niche cameras with special sensors that were beloved by the devoted few who used them, but in the last year or so, they have started to venture into more mainstream territory. Now, the company seems set to release a rather unique camera that combines both their old and new philosophies.
The new Canon 1D X Mark III is an absolute powerhouse camera on both the video and stills sides of the equation, with a specs sheet that should make just about anyone eager with anticipation. How does it hold up in practice? This excellent video takes a look at the new camera to help you decide if it is right for you.
It is no secret that camera sales have been in decline for quite a few years now, mostly due to the rise of the smartphone eliminating the need for a dedicated camera for most consumers and casual photographers. 2019 was no exception, as the drop in sales continued; however, there was a small bit of good news buried within the numbers.
Camera manufacturers are keenly aware of how much photographers love their gear and in particular, how much they love extreme gear. As lenses continue to push below f/1 apertures and ISO capabilities skyrocket towards seven-digit figures, is the next major specs war going to be making the first mainstream consumer camera that can shoot gigapixel (1,000 megapixel) photos?
