The new Sony a7R III was announced yesterday and it has introduced some improvements over its predecessor, the a7R II. One of the improvements is 10fps continuous shooting, which doubles the speed of the previous model. Guys from DPReview have published a demo, demonstrating what the new mirrorless camera from Sony is capable of. They’ve tested the continuous shooting, as well as the Eye AF, which also seems to be pretty impressive.
One of the impressive features of Sony a9 is its continuous shooting speed of 20fps. Sony and photographer Amar Ramesh decided to demonstrate the cameras continuous shooting performance in quite a creative way, so they created a video. The video that was made entirely out of stitched photos shot with the a9’s burst mode. Since 20fps is quite near the standard 24fps of video shooting, the result is really impressive.
The announcement of the new Sony A9 has created a lot of buzz. And indeed, this camera looks like a dream come true for all mirrorless shooters, especially for sports or wildlife photographers. If you’ve read the announcement and the review, you are familiar with the fact that it features a blackout-free 20fps continuous burst mode.
In this video, you’ll see what exactly it looks like. Hugh Brownstone from Three Blind Men and An Elephant Productions captured it, and it looks really powerful.
Twenty years ago, Nikon released a very special camera; The Nikon F3H (“H” for “High Speed”). Designed specifically for super fast burst shooting, it keeps up well with many of today’s modern DSLRs.
We were just so fortunate to stumble upon this verified clip of the Canon EOS D1X mkII. Got super low res file, but the sound is ace, and you can get the first peek (or rather the first click) of what this new camera sounds like at 16 FPS. While this may not be the first ever Canon 1D-X mkII sound file, we found no other comparison of regular vs. liveview sounds.
Interestingly, our source tells us that the 1D-x mkII autofocus some an amazing job with its predictive focus.
More to come…..
Blair Bunting had all of three days to play around with his new Profoto B1 lights before he set out to photograph that awesome parallax Superbowl commercial for National Bank of Arizona. In case you missed it, you can watch it at the bottom of the post, but first, you can take a look at how he captured the ultra high definition moving photos in the 12-minute long behind the scenes clip he just posted over on Vimeo.
Bunting calls the gorgeous technique parallax, a term he borrowed and explains like this:
“What is parallax? Think of when you were in grade school and you had to do one of those cheesy plays…there is always a part in that play where some kid is on a boat made of a tricycle and cardboard, and they are in the rough ocean. In order to create this imaginary ocean in the elementary school cafeteria, they use whats called parallax. This is where they have on set of blue waves on a stick in front of the kid and one behind. The movement of these waves back and forth creates in your mind the idea of the ocean.”
