On Sony announces Alpha a5100 compact mirrorless camera article (106 comments in total)

Sony needs to start releasing some good lenses for mirrorless system and stop pushing so many bodies. Micro 4/3 and fuji x system have best choices of glass options right now.

I would love to see a similar digital back for old film SLRs.

On Nikon announces full-frame D810 with no OLPF article (98 comments in total)

Quite funny even a "pro" camera from Nikon cannot control more than 2 groups of speedlights. Also they dont offer a radio trigger or radio speedlights.

brendon1000: No word on the video bitrate which is currently a Canon strong point.

If the bit rate is still 28 MBps then this camera won't be able to successfully compete with the 5D Mk III.

@Thimetik: hacking canon with 3rd party firmware doesnt void warrenty unlike Nikon who doesnt want its customers to use anything except nikon/nikkor with their ilc.

Linerider: Why doesn't any manufacture make lenses this range for APC sensors?
This would be a perfect range/focal length

Nikon has a pair of 18-300mm lenses in their catalogue and Tamron makes a 16-300mm lens for Aps-c format of camera. From my personal experience any superzoom lens for dslr/mirrorless are not worth any kind of money for serious work. Although from camera manufacturer's point there is a sizeable market for these kind of lenses amongst travellers and beginers.

Skeptical about the 5-stop stabilisation. Would like to see some reviews about that claim.

Chaitanya S: Price 900$, dfd, 1" sensor, 4k video and usable zoom range with fast aperture. Panasonic has done done their homework before bringing this camera. This is a perfect superzoom camera that I wouldnt mind carrying along with my slr kit just for 4k video shooting.

I usually shoot macro with my SLR, and I have a tripod with me. I like to record mating and hunting behaviour of frogs, snakes, lizards and insects. Also this camera has 120fps at 1080p which means I shoot some slow motion videos. Also I can always crop video for a little extra reach.

AngryCorgi: I can't wait to see how this new sensor design performs. I really hope its better than the old ones in terms of SNR.

Another big question being how good the battery life is on dp2. Dp1 had a terrible battery life. I know couple of landscape photographers who are very happy with dp1 and they are excited to know how new dp2 performs.

samfan: 100 GB for 109 €/year. Are they ever gonna be realistic with the pricing?

You want backup? Buy an external network drive and hook it up to the router in your photographer friend's house. Encrypt it and set so only you have access. Have your friend hookup up another hard drive in your house for him to backup.

Want to be more advanced? Rent some webhousing space and put a Raspberi Pi with the hard drive there.

Cloud based storage is still expensive. Google and microsoft charge on a monthly basis. Even amazon charges similarly. Just give it couple of years and the cloud storage pricing will be more affordable.

On Stream your photos... via backpack? article (36 comments in total)

5-6 years ago it would have been innovative. But now a days even cameras have wifi and lan. Also there are a lot of wifi based memory cards available in market. Also a lot of photographer can easily use internet dongles, mobile routers and cell phone to upload photos directly.

Interesting camera, sony has been evolving the rx series with each generation and they do seem like good compacts to carry as a 2nd camera. I wouldnt mind getting a Sony compact if their service centres in India were any good as Canon/Nikon. Since I tend to abuse my cameras, for me atleast staying with nikon or canon cameras just for those service centres.

On Canon announces 16-35mm F4L and 10-18mm F4.5-5.6 lenses article (367 comments in total)

I really dont like lenses with plastic mount(I have a 18-55 kit lens with broken mount). But at 300$ I wont mind buying that 10-18mm lens to take habitat shots(wide angle photos containing the subject and its habitat). I rarely need a ultra wide lens as most of the photos that I shoot are done using a macro lens anyways. Also Stm and Is are great additions just in case someone plans to shoot videos.

Unlike the x-vario this new leica camera is priced right. Also with hundereds of m mount lenses avlaible on used market this will make sense to anyone who owns a leica M.

On Ricoh announces medium-format Pentax 645Z article (160 comments in total)

I would love to see some video samples shot from this camera. Since it is a medium format camera, DOF is going to be super thin compared to a 35mm camera. Great job by pentax on bringing this monster to the market.
