Then Leica SL2 almost doubles the resolution of its predecessor, the Leica SL: from 24 to 47.3 megapixels. But the latest firmware update allows you to shoot four times that much. Thanks to the new Multishot feature, the SL2 can now produce 187MP photos.
It seems almost inevitable that when Canon announces a new camera, it’ll get a quick whack from the cripple hammer, at least when it comes to video. Canon is pretty notorious for teasing some pretty amazing video claims, but then when the final product comes out and the specs are confirmed, many are left disappointed.
The biggest issue many video shoots have with Canon these days is the often severe crop that many of the cameras see when shooting their highest resolution video. It was a concern for the upcoming Canon EOS R5‘s boast of 8K video, too. But now Canon has confirmed that the EOS R5 will indeed shoot full-frame, cropless, 8K video.
The controversial M-Fn touchbar which was introduced with Canon’s EOS R mirrorless camera is notably absent from the upcoming EOS R5, new images show. Japanese website DC Watch has posted several images of the new camera, including some from the rear, showing that the touch bar found on the EOS R is nowhere to be found.
Instead, it has been replaced by the familiar AF-ON button and a joystick for your thumb. This will be good news to critics of the M-Fn touchbar, who weren’t keen on it in the EOS R. But it’s not the only change from the EOS R. The back has ha a complete redesign. When you see the two side by side, the differences become quite apparent.
Canon has teased some real info about the rumoured EOS R5 full-frame RF mount mirrorless camera, and it looks like it’s going to be a bit of a beast. First of all, it’s real, and it will definitely be called the EOS R5.
Aimed squarely at professionals, and looking to take sales from Sony’s A7R IV, the two big features of the EOS R5 are that it will be able to shoot 8K video and will be Canon’s first camera to utilise in-body image stabilisation.
It’s been a minute since we last heard anything about the Lightroom-powered Zeiss ZX1 camera. Almost a whole year, in fact. It was first announced rather quietly at Photokina 2018 last September followed by a brief hands-on in December, but since then it’s been radio silence.
Now it looks like it might be one step closer to actually being released after support for its DNG files was added to the latest Adobe Camera Raw 12.1 update.
Canon’s EOS 5DS and 5DSR have proven quite popular amongst landscape, architecture, product, macro and other photographers who demand high resolutions over speed. But they were released in 2015 and Canon has shown no indication that they’ll be replaced by an upcoming DSLR. A high-resolution EOS R mirrorless model, however, has been rumoured for a while now.
Now it looks like the folks at Canon Rumors have managed to get their hands on some possible specs for the new high-res mirrorless, which they’re dubbing the “EOS Rs”. Their source also claims to have shot with a prototype of the new model, and that we can expect an announcement possibly as soon as February.
Rumours of the Leica SL2 have been out for a while now. We saw photos and a list of specs leaked two months ago. But now, Leica has officially announced the Leica SL2; A 47.3-megapixel full-frame L mount mirrorless camera capable of shooting stills at up to 20fps, 4K video at 60fps, and 1080p HD slow motion at up to 180fps.
Granted, it’s not much of a pocket camera once you stick one of those L mount Art series lenses on it, but the Sigma FP is still a pretty tiny camera. It represents Sigma’s first L mount camera in the Sigma/Leica/Panasonic alliance announced at Photokina 2018. It’s not quite the full-frame Foveon beast we hoped for, but it still looks pretty good.
We caught up with Sigma at PhotoPlus 2019 to find out more about the Sigma FP and what it can do.
Lens roadmaps never used to really be a thing. A company developed a lens, then they announced it, then you could buy it, and that was it. But consumer demand has changed. People are more fickle and prone to swapping brands if they think the competition will offer something better suited to their needs. So, now they seem to be coming thick and fast.
So, in order to try and convince people that they are going to deliver what people want, Nikon has updated their Z mount lens roadmap. There are 13 previously unannounced lenses in the list. It adds some popular classics, like the 60mm and 105mm macros, and completes the holy trinity with 14-24mm f/2.8 and 70-200mm f/2.8 zooms.
Sigma FP was announced back in July, but without the expected retail price. But now the price and availability have finally been disclosed. The new full-frame L-mount mirrorless camera from Sigma comes with lots of improvements and changes over the previous models. So, the price is substantially higher compared to the previous models.
