According to the latest reports, Olympus is doing badly. And it’s so bad, that the company could even leave the digital camera market. Reportedly, the company’s activist shareholders could force Olympus to exit the market and go into a different direction.
I really have no idea how I feel about this thing. This is the GimbalGun. It looks like something you’d use to take tanks out, but it’s actually a support system designed for use with single-handed gimbals to give you even more stability. It’s not available just yet, but it’s coming to Kickstarter soon.
Essentially it’s a long metal box with a bunch of 1/4-20″ holes for connecting devices. A gimbal, monitor, microphone, lights, mini tripods, or whatever you need to carry around with your gimbal. But its goal is to help take the weight off your arms and onto your more substantial shoulders.
Last October, when Leica manager Stephan Schulz was badmouthing Sony’s E Mount, and how it simply couldn’t handle faster lenses due to its small stature, Sony come back not long after they said that they could absolutely do f/1.0 lenses. They just don’t think it’s worth the hassle and that the demand simply isn’t there.
Well, they seem to have taken things a little further now. With Nikon’s claim of theoretical f/0.65 lenses, Sony claims that they could produce f/0.63 lenses. And they have diagrams to prove it!
Sony is famous for high-quality mirrorless cameras. Expectedly, many users have wondered: why hasn’t Sony still offered a smartphone with a killer camera? Well, there certainly are some reasons for that and the company has finally revealed them. Its plans for phone cameras turned out to be shortsighted – but it appears that this is going to change.
Ever since Blackmagic announced their BRAW format, Blackmagic camera owners have been begging for it to come to their camera first, particularly those who were still waiting for their Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K orders to show up.
Initially, BRAW came to the Ursa Mini Pro, and there have been no real guarantees as to which other cameras it may appear on or when. But now, in the latest Blackmagic Camera 6.2 update, it’s finally here for the Pocket 4K. Oh, and they’re removing CinemaDNG completely.
Portuguese inventor, Rui Pedro Oliveira claims that Huawei flew him to meet with them to pitch his patent pending 360 camera. He says they then ceased all contact and essentially ripped off his design in order to produce the Huawei EnVizion 360 Camera. According to an article on Fstoppers, he was then forced to sell his house in order to cover the cost of legal representation.
It’s long been thought that when shooting raw, we can basically just ignore the in-camera processing settings. They’re only used if you’re shooting jpg or video, anyway, right? At least, that’s what everybody’s thought for years. Because for the most part it’s been true.
It turns out, though, that on Sony cameras, certain picture profiles do actually change the data that’s saved into your raw files. And in this video, Gerald Undone proves it.
The Fujifilm 33mm f/1 AF lens isn’t exactly a secret. It was first mentioned back in July last year when Fujifilm released their latest lens roadmap for X series cameras. While not originally scheduled for release until 2020, the lens was made official a couple of months later in September.
We knew the focal length, the maximum aperture, and what mount it was for. We even had a rough idea of the release schedule, but what we didn’t know about was the price. Now, it seems that Czech retailer, Oehling, has put up a price. A price that equates to a little under $3,100.
Nikon’s lightweight 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR has been removed from Amazon’s search results, and pre-orders seem to have been cancelled and refunded. The lens was first announced as being in development last June, with the first sightings in the wild appearing a month later. Finally, a month after that, it was officially launched.
Yet, here we are, seven months later, with the lens still showing up as a pre-order item on everywhere that still has the listing available. The product listing on Amazon still exists, although it states that the item is currently unavailable and that they don’t know when or if it will be in stock. It has been removed from search results completely.
