It’s newest weapon is the much anticipated Sony a6300, a brand new mirrorless camera that packs in 24-megapixels, incredibly fast autofocus and 4K video capability, all for only $1,000.[Read More…]
As usual, market research and analysis firm BCN announced its annual BCN Awards, accolades given to photography equipment manufacturers based on sales volume, calculated from data gathered from thousands of retailers across Japan.
Of course, since this is based only on the Japanese market it doesn’t tell the entire story, but it’s interesting nonetheless to get such a broad perspective of how the camera market is doing and seeing who is selling what.[Read More…]
After months and months of rumors, Olympus has finally unveiled the Olympus PEN-F, a digital revitalization of its original Pen-F, a half-frame film camera that made its debut in 1963.
Like its other Pen siblings, the Pen-F is a retro-inspired mirrorless camera designed to combine the best of digital technology with the aesthetics of the analog days. Rather than replacing any of the current Pen cameras in Olympus’ lineup though, the Pen-F is meant to act as a premium option for those who want a little more bang for their buck.[Read More…]
The debate over which system is better, DSLR or mirrorless, is on its way to becoming as heated as Canon vs Nikon.
As mirrorless systems improve and catch up to DSLR cameras, or in some aspects outdo them, the decision which to get isn’t as easy as it used to be.

A month after releasing the α68 in Europe, Sony has announced that it is bringing its latest entry-level camera to the US and Canada, contradicting previous rumors that Sony was killing off its A-mount lineup.[Read More…]
For DSLR photographers looking to make the jump to mirrorless, one of the biggest turnoffs is having to settle for an electronic viewfinder (EVF). As things currently stand, most EVFs are good enough to get the job done, but many still lack in resolution and – arguably most importantly – color rendering.
That’s changing though, with the production of a new EVF from Epson (yes, the company most known for printers). It’s unglamorously called the ‘Ultimicron L3FJ63800C’ and said to be the highest resolution EVF for mass production – packing in almost twice the pixels and 30% more color gamut than anything on the market.[Read More…]
Rumors were spreading fast yesterday that Nikon acquired Samsung’s mirrorless technology, but an official statement from the Korean giant denies the NX tech will be changing hands.
Skeptics will say it’s a standard denial that isn’t necessary true, but a close look at the exact wording of the statements so far indicates Nikon and Samsung might go into business together rather than Samsung shutting down its imaging business completely.
