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.
Panasonic’s announcement from CES today talks about the upcoming Lumix S1 and S1R cameras announced at Photokina. On initial announcement, not a lot of information was released. We know that the S1 will house a 24-megapixel full frame sensor, and the S1R will be 47-megapixels. We also know that they would both utilise Leica’s L mount.
But beyond that, there’s still not a lot out there. But now Panasonic has released information two of the features that will be coming to the Lumix S series cameras. High Resolution Mode and “HLG Photo” (High Dynamic Range). Oh, and we also have a release date.
At CES 2019 in Las Vegas, Nikon announced that Z series of lenses is going wide: NIKKOR Z 14-30mm f/4 S is the latest addition to the Z family. It’s not only the first ultra-wide lens for the Z system but also the world’s first ultra-wide full-frame lens that lets you attach filters on the front.
After the rather disappointing reception received by the EOS R, Canon seems to be doubling down on mirrorless to show off how seriously they’re taking it. So far we’re expecting two new EOS R mirrorless bodies in 2019 (one entry-level and one “super-high resolution“) as well as three new APS-C DSLRs, and two EOS M bodies.
That’s a heck of a target for a single year. But this isn’t all they’re doing. The RF mount lens selection for the EOS R and its expected siblings is a little on the thin side at the moment. According to Canon Rumours, they’re going to announce up to seven new RF mount lenses during in 2019. They do say, though, that some may not actually hit the streets until 2020.
When Zeiss announced the Android-powered ZX1 back in September, It was met with a bit of a mixed reaction, and a lot of questions. No card slots? Why put Lightroom in a camera? Can the screen even be calibrated? How does the CC subscription factor into this? And, is it actually any good?
Well, Zeiss have put out the first video covering the use of the new camera. To do so, they enlisted the help of German freelance photographer Sabrina Weniger, in the streets of Düsseldorf’s Little Tokyo.
Sometimes, branding or naming products doesn’t always go as a company intends. They call it one thing, they want us to call it that thing, but then the general public calls it something else. Apparently, Nikon’s two new mirrorless cameras are a case of this.
Canon got a lot of flak when the EOS R camera with no in-body image stabilisation. Well, it got flak for a lot of things, like the single card slot and ridiculously cropped 4K video mode, but the lack of IBIS was a big one, too.
Canon has said previously said that, essentially, they didn’t put IBIS in the EOS R because they didn’t feel that putting it in the body was the right way to go. Well, according to a post over on Canon Rumors, it seems that Canon might have actually listened to feedback and will be putting it into one of their new EOS R bodies sooner than we thought.
