Earlier this year, we saw a patent for a fingerprint sensor from Canon. Nikon has just taken things a bit further. The company has filed a patent for biometric sensors that will read photographer’s emotions. They will be placed on the lens, as well as on the camera, to record your biometric information while you are shooting.
There are many symbols on our cameras these days. Most of them are next to buttons that have a function. And we usually instinctively know what those functions are. Or, we can soon learn by pushing them and playing around.
There’s one symbol that exists on almost all cameras today, though, that has no button, no function, and often no explanation in the manual. But here, ZY Productions explains exactly what it is and what it’s for.
It looks like the newly announced Sony RX100 VA is its real replacement. Essentially the same as the RX100 V, it does see some updates. It includes the processor and firmware from the RX100 VI but does miss some of the hardware improvements.
The Tamron 70-210mm f/4 Di VC lens has had a lot of hype. Leaked in February, announced a day later, and subsequently reviews on its own, it’s seems to be quite a good lens. But how does it stand up against the Nikon 70-200mm f/4 VR and the brand new Canon 70-200mm f/4 IS II? And which should you buy?
That’s what this video from DPReview TV aims to find out. Chris and Jordan team up with photographer Kyle Marquardt to put them to the test. Which is going to be best for you will depend on your needs.
All photographers have their favorite accessories they couldn’t imagine their lives without. In this video, Steve Perry suggests eight of those accessories that could make your life much easier if you’re a nature photographer and often use big lenses. Most of them are pretty affordable, and some are even DIY, so you won’t spend a fortune on them, yet you could really find them handy.
It looks like one chapter for Nikon mirrorless cameras has ended, and the other is about to begin. Nikon 1, the first line of mirrorless cameras from the company, has just been discontinued.
If there’s one thing that’s definitely not going away, it’s 360 VR cameras. And they’ve come a very long way in the last few years. It was only 2016, two short years ago, when the Ricoh Theta S was being lauded as one of the best on the consumer market – with 1080p video. But as the technology has become a little more established, demands have evolved.
Detu is answering these demands with the new Detu MAX. A 3D 360° VR camera that can shoot stereo video at a whopping 8K resolution. It’s also capable of shooting HDR 3D images and offers stills resolutions up to 12K. They’re launching the MAX on Kickstarter, with prices up to 40% off the expected retail price.
It seems like Canon is about to focus more on mirrorless cameras over the following year. Before we get to see the two new mirrorless cameras, the company might launch another iteration of the EOS M5. According to the rumors, the EOS M5 Mark II will feature some improvements over the previous model, such as 4K video.
