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 Sony A7r II Seems to Boast a 59 Megapixel Sensor
A few days ago we shared a photo that seems to have been taken with the Sony A7r II and uploaded to the Zeiss Lenses’s Flickr account.
The photo’s resolution indicated it was captured using a 56MP sensor, but the irregular image ratio suggested that the sensor is most likely even larger and that the photo was cropped by Zeiss.
A new image, with EXIF-data intact, reveals the latest sensor packs a whopping 59 megapixels.
Keep in mind this information has not been confirmed, though there are several good reasons to believe it is true.
Zeiss May Have Revealed the Upcoming Sony A7r Mark II and a 56+ Megapixel Sensor
Earlier today Carl Zeiss Lenses uploaded a few sample photos of the new Batis 85mm f/1.8 lens to its Flickr account, but what’s really interesting are not the images but rather the size of one of them.
While there’s nothing unusual with the rest of the album, one photo sticks out. The photo’s caption states it was taken with the new lens and a Sony α7R, but while that camera features a 36.4MP sensor (7392 x 4920), the sample photo’s original size is 8910 x 6300 – which equals to 56.1MP
Could this photo have been taken with the still-rumored Sony A7r II?
