While Nikon’s lens roadmap is pretty clear, their intentions for future bodies isn’t, really. But Nikon has suggested that a lower entry level full frame mirrorless camera to compete with Canon’s recently announced EOS RP would be on the way. Now it looks like we might have the first leaked photo of that body, and it appears to have a name. The Nikon Z1.
With Nikon and Canon finally entering the fray and the whole Panasonic/Sigma/Leica alliance thing, it’s starting to get quite exciting in the world of full frame mirrorless. It feels a lot like when DSLRs first came into existence. Of course, we didn’t have Facebook then, so people were more concerned with shooting than measuring.
But these days, kit comparisons are inevitable, especially with the rate at which technology is advancing and new products are being released. In this video, Jay P Morgan looks at the Nikon Z6 and Sony A7III cameras. On paper, they’re pretty close, with both cameras having some slight advantages over the other in certain areas. Some of Jay’s results, though, are quite surprising.
Canon has now officially announced the new 26.2MP Canon EOS RP full frame mirrorless camera, doubling their RF mount camera lineup to 2. The new camera is a fairly basic entry level body, but not only does it set a new standard for full frame entry level mirrorless, but it’s also the lightest and least expensive full frame camera that Canon has ever made, costing a mere $1,299.
The buzz regarding a possible new entry-level Canon RF mount mirrorless camera has been getting quite intense over the last few days. And now, just the evening before an official announcement is expected, the entire spec sheet seems to have leaked.
Thanks to Amazon UK jumping the gun, we also have some idea of the price, too, with the basic model and EF to RF lens adapter costing £1,300 and US kits rumoured to start as low as $1,299.
There’s been a lot of rumours and speculation over the past few months since Panasonic unveiled their alliance with Leica and Sigma at Photokina and briefly introduced us to their two new full-frame mirrorless cameras; the Panasonic Lumix S1 and S1R. Now, they’re finally here. Well, at least to pre-order. But here’s all the info, specs and capabilities.
Well, it’s (almost) official. The launch of the Panasonic S1 and S1R full-frame mirrorless cameras was expected in March, presumably, so they could tease them at The Photography Show, and then show them off properly at Photokina. Since Photokina was cancelled, however, Panasonic let out a new teaser letting us know to expect an announcement on January 31st (today).
It looks like UK retailers Park Cameras and CVP might have jumped the gun slightly, though, because, for a brief time, they listed the new cameras and various lens combos on their websites for pre-order, along with prices. Well, Park had prices, CVP didn’t.
The Panasonic S1R full frame mirrorless camera that was expected to be announced sometime in March, although it looks now that it might be announced tomorrow, after the release of a Panasonic S1/S1R launch teaser video stating January 31st 2019.
One of the features coming to both cameras is a High Resolution Mode. The camera shoots a set of 8 images and then combines them into a single super high resolution shot. And, according to L-Rumors, the S1R combines them into a crazy 187-megapixel image.
Although it has been a while since digital cameras took over the market, some photographers still prefer shooting film. But is shooting film really worth the money, time and effort you put into it? How different it really is from shooting digital? In this video from Shutterstock, Logan Baker compares 35mm and medium format film with a full frame mirrorless camera to show you how they compare.
