Nikon is making a big push towards XQD and is putting significant weight behind the tech. And now Nikon is giving a push to show how much better XQD are compared to the older Compact Flashes.
Canon shooters have been impatiently waiting for the EOS-1D X replacement, especially since the official announcement of the Nikon D5, and while the company still hasn’t released any official information, we’ve got the first photos and leaks specs of the soon-to-be-released monster of a camera.
The official announcement will likely take place next week, but until then – does it live up to your expectations?
We’ve already talked about what Apple might be getting up to for the camera in their upcoming tenth generation iPhone. But, as is usually the case with any research and development, Apple is already at work patenting unique tech to put in even later generation iPhones.
One of the most recent patents to come to light is the schematics for a spherically curved sensor. While curved sensors aren’t exactly new, it’s the spherical design that sets it apart from other curved sensors we’ve seen in the past. [Read more…]
After months and months of rumors, Olympus has finally unveiled the Olympus PEN-F, a digital revitalization of its original Pen-F, a half-frame film camera that made its debut in 1963.
Like its other Pen siblings, the Pen-F is a retro-inspired mirrorless camera designed to combine the best of digital technology with the aesthetics of the analog days. Rather than replacing any of the current Pen cameras in Olympus’ lineup though, the Pen-F is meant to act as a premium option for those who want a little more bang for their buck. [Read more…]

If you’ve been eyeing a Westcott Ice Light for some time, but don’t care to drop the dough on it, Chinese light accessory manufacturer Yongnuo has a new product that might interest you.
A few years ago I broke the filter on my 24-70 2.8 Nikon lens. I felt quite the lucky guy, as that lens is about $1,800. The comments on the usefulness of that filter were mixed. I think the comments on how the new Sigma filter protects a lens will be different.
On December Sigma announced that they are developing a new ceramic glass filter that will be stronger than any other filter you know.
Sigma released a video that was very slick (we will link it below) but did not show much of the action. Now Sigma released another movie showing how a 49 gram metal ball is dropped from 127 centimeters onto the filter and the filter survives. (None of the other branded filters do… ). Why 127 centimeters, and why 49 grams? I don’t know. Maybe it those symbolize the first and last names of Sigma founders.
