2015 was a good year for Canon. Not only did it release the record-breaking 50MP 5Ds and 5Ds R DSLR cameras, it also broke its own record for the highest number of patents the company was granted in one year.
Canon also maintained its top spot among Japanese companies, and has marked its 30th consecutive year as a top five U.S. patent holder.
SanDisk developed the CompactFlash (CF) format and manufactured the first devices back in 1994, which makes the technology 22 years old.
That on its own is enough of a reason to replace it, and it seems Nikon is doing its best to crown the XQD format as the successor.
Not only will the newly announced D500 use an XQD memory card, the flagship D5 will be available with either dual CF slots or dual XQD slots, and according to a recent rumor 90% of the new cameras will come with the latter.
Sony E-mount users, prepare yourselves. Techart has developed a Leica M-mount to Sony E-mount autofocus adapter. [Read more…]
Nikon might’ve made the most commotion in the action camera game at CES 2016, they weren’t the only major brand to release adventurous new gear. Sony has also made their presence known with a brand new entry-level action cam designed to take on GOPro’s HERO+ head on. [Read more…]
Kicking off 2016 with a bang, Phase One announced a new 100mp full frame 645 medium format sensor.
The sensor was designed together with Sony, and will be used in the new 100MP Phase One XF camera system.
No to be confused with the standard full-frame sensor, this one got its name simply as it’s not a cropped 645 sensor. Don’t worry about mixing them up, though, as the price will quickly remind you this is a medium format camera.
The Sony A7SII is a marvel of low light performance. With native ISO of 100-102400 it rivals military grade night vision. Youtube user VideoArt GR created a video comparing what we see with the naked human eye vs. where we can go bumping the ISO of the A7SII. The test was made with a Rokinon 50mm t1.5 cine lens at an ISO range of 64.000- 160.000 (the last shot went up to 256.000), and no noise reduction was added in post production.
