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 often hear smartphones are to blame for the massive decline in camera sales over the last few years. And while they have no doubt played a major part for a lot of general consumers, is it really enough to see the huge drops we’ve seen?
Since the initial and somewhat vague “development announcement” in September, Nikon has remained pretty tight-lipped about the impending Nikon D6. They haven’t even said when they’re announcing it, yet, although all indicators pointed towards a date in early 2020, following on from the January 6th announcement dates in 2012 and 2016 for the D4 and D5 respectively.
But it seems the announcement may come in a tad later, according to a report on Nikon Rumors. They say they’ve been hearing February 12th, 2020 as a potential announcement date more than once, although it could be for an internal presentation rather than a public announcement. But they do have an updated list of rumoured specs, too.
Well, it was bound to happen, wasn’t it? Nikon has been slacking on the mirrorless front and Nikkei now reports that they are projected to take 3rd place behind Sony in camera sales for this fiscal year. In a year where Nikon is set to record their first loss, at around $92 million (way down from their initial projections of $110 million profit), this isn’t good news for the company.
New gear is constantly being announced and cameras are getting better and better. Plus, at this time of the year, there are also *oh so tempting* Black Friday deals. So, to upgrade or not to upgrade, that is the question. In this video, Mark Denney shares his own answer to it and explains why you may not want to upgrade your gear just yet. And if you’re not sure when to do it, this video will definitely help you to make the right decision.
The Feelworld F6 Plus is the latest 5.5″ on-camera monitor from Feelworld. Except in name, it shares little in common with the Feelworld F6 it replaces. It’s had a complete redesign over its predecessor, with a shiny new display, touchscreen interface, HDMI passthrough and LUT support.
We first saw the F6 Plus on display at NAB earlier this year, and I’ve been using one as my main on-camera monitor for a few weeks now with various cameras. So, here’s the rundown on the specs, how it works in practical use and my overall thoughts on the Feelworld F6 Plus.
Despite the introduction of the full-frame EOS R and EOS RP cameras, Canon isn’t giving up on its APS-C line of EOS M bodies, as evidenced by the release of the EOS M6 Mark II and the EOS M200. Rumour has it, though, that there are a couple of new ones expected to be released during 2020.
At this early stage, the specs need to be taken with a grain of salt, but one is suggested to be a Mark II successor to the EOS M50 (or perhaps a new M60), while the name of the other is currently unknown.
Power is a constant struggle for camera rigs, especially when you want to go a bit more run and gun. Sure, you can use internal batteries in everything, but then you have to carry a bunch of spares, and with some cameras, you’re fighting with the cage whenever you attempt to swap it out.
We showed you the Indipro Power Grip recently from PhotoPlus 2019, but now there’s a new one just launched on Indiegogo, which looks to be sized more like your typical SmallRig handle but claims 8,000mAh of power, and output straight to your camera’s dummy battery.
There are a number of pocketable 360° cameras out there now, like the Insta360 ONE X, Insta360 EVO, YI 360 VR, and countless others, but the resolution limit for pocketable 360° cameras seems to have been 5.7K. There are also a number of 8K cameras out there, too, but most are pretty big. Now, that’s changed with the new QooCam 8K.
You might remember the Qoocam for that funny looking twisting 4K 360° camera which also shoots 3D 180° footage. While the QooCam 8K doesn’t offer the same dual purpose, it’s a pretty small camera considering it shoots 8K. It does it with only two lenses, too, instead of the usual 4 or more. It’s also capable of shooting 30-megapixel 12-Bit RAW stills, too.
Well, this is a bit of a surprise. Sigma appears to have finally made a camera that’s a sales hit. At least for Japanese retailer Yodabashi Camera. Yodabashi Camera is one of the largest camera retailers in Japan, with online sales second only to Amazon. Their latest report says that for the last two weeks in October, the Sigma FP was their most sold camera, ousting Sony from the top spot.
