Back in April Apple acquired Israeli-startup LinX, specializing in computational imaging, and it seems the giant from Cupertino might be putting the new technology to good use – at least in its patents.
A recent patent application describes a mobile camera system with multiple cameras, and its applications could be truly remarkable.
Studio strobes have plenty of interesting light modifiers, sadly, hot shoe strobes (or OCF – off camera flash) do not fit in those due to the different form factor. But! hot shoe strobes can be adapted to fit studio strobe mounts using appropriate adapter/holder. This configuration allows to use a cheap and light strobes on location without the need to carry big havy strobes and batteries. It also gives access to the many studio light modifiers that are found on the market.
We knew it wouldn’t be long before Canon finally started switching their cinema cameras over to the RF mount and they’ve finally done it. Today, Canon has announced the new Canon EOS C70 Super 35mm cinema camera. They say it’s in a “mirrorless-style body” although it actually looks a lot more like a big ol’ chunky DSLR than it does a little mirrorless camera.
It’s a pretty hefty little beast that offers Dual Gain Output (DGO) claiming an impressive 16+ stops of high dynamic range. Naturally, as it’s Canon, it features Dual Pixel CMOS AF and can shoot 4K DCI at up to 120fps (without overheating, though?) or a Super 16 2K crop at up to 180fps.
We haven’t heard anything about replacement models for the two-year-old Nikon Z6 and Z7 cameras in a couple of months, but now there’s been an update to the rumoured specs for upcoming Nikon Z6s and Z7s models.
By all reports so far, the Z6s and Z7s will only be incremental updates over the Z6 and Z7, just as the D4s was over the D4 and the D300s was over the D300, but they will offer a few significant upgrades for professional users.
While we have had a couple of photo and basic specs leaks, Sony has managed to keep the major specs of its new Sony A7C mostly under wraps. But now, it’s finally been announced and all the details are out – although, for some reason, Sony decided to announce it when much of the world was asleep.
Although ideal for vloggers and content creators, the A7C is no slouch as a regular photography camera, either. It’s is essentially an A7 III in an A6600-sized body and the specs aren’t that much different, although the A7C has a couple of extra tricks up it sleeve that beat out both the A7 III and A6600.
Here at Kolari Vision, we love tearing into the newest camera gears to learn how they work and if they can be modded for infrared photography, full spectrum photography, or other things. We’ve been really excited about the Canon EOS R5 & EOS R6 release and had plans to add some cooling mods and overhaul it into a proper video camera.
Reports that Canon uses a clock rather than temperature readings left us a bit disappointed and calls into question whether physically cooling down the camera can actually give any more shooting time. While we don’t have an R5 yet, we did get an R6 this week and tore it down to see what’s inside. Here we’ll go over the basics that we found inside, how the thermals are handled, and later share some insights we learned about how the Canon clock circuit works.
There wasn’t really much left for Panasonic to announce about their new Panasonic S5 mirrorless camera, except to confirm the price. The specs were leaked a couple of weeks ago, and the product photos leaked a few days ago. Even a price was sort-of leaked but not confirmed. But, now, announced it Panasonic has and it’s $1,997.99.
The Panasonic S5 is pretty much as we expected. It’s a 24.2-megapixel L mount camera that shoots 4K UHD video at up to 60fps, Full HD 1080p video at up to 180fps and it has a flippy out LCD, aiming it squarely at vloggers and content creators.
Well, it took a while, but Hasselblad has finally announced the availability of their 907X 50C medium format camera. You know, the one they initially announced last June and did a special edition for that had no actual release date? Yeah, that one. Well, it’s finally here.
The Hasselblad 907X 50C combines the CFV II 50C back with the 907X, Hasselblad’s smallest ever medium format camera body to create a pretty tiny package. The design allows for a more traditional waist-level medium format shooting experience, thanks to the tilting LCD and is compatible with X system lenses (but also H, V and XPan lenses through the use of adapters).
With 2020 rapidly approaching Q4, there isn’t much time left for manufacturers to announce new cameras this year. But with the pace at which new ones have been announced over the last few months, it wouldn’t surprise me if there were a few more yet to come. And according to a report on Canon Rumors, it looks like there are.
CR says that they’ve received multiple reports over the last few months that a pair of EOS M cameras are coming in 2020, and recently they’ve received some information on what these cameras may be. According to the rumour, we can expect the EOS-M50 Mark II and a new EOS-M7 flagship model.
