  • Replied in NAB versus?
    So a secretive (?) unveiling in China, with no formal announcements or spec sheets, makes more sense? So far as pricing goes, will broadcasters pay $20k for cameras if they can get most of the ...
  • Strange that neither the "newcamera" nor the "canonwatch" sites give a link to a transcript or summary of the Canon presentation.  Based on "stealth" photos snatched by the audience? Based on size ...
  • Replied in 47st. Photo
    If there were any connection to the "original," whether by licensing or reincarnation, what difference would that make? If a retailer lists prices similar to the competition, that may suggest ...
  • If your source was a senior Nikon dealer, then perhaps. One could inquire directly. http://www.nikon.com.au/en_AU/about/contact_us.page? Phone: 02 8767 6900 Substitute with staff based overseas, ...
  • Replied in 4K on BluRay
    Nothing but tentative "maybe" projections and rumors.  Yes, Sony, Panasonic, and others have worked on UHD disc and player technologies, using the HEVC h.265 codec, but none are available for ...
  • Acceleration of real-time video to time lapse can be done in post, but means the source video must be very long if it is to portray anything that is very slow.  With the AX100, can one shoot video ...
  • First of all, there is no way whatever to stop people from talking, shuffling, crying, gagging, gripping, or issuing all sorts of bodily noises. Shotgun mics cannot suppress side or rear noises if ...
  • "Just around the corner"? Sez hoo?
    The November rumors alleged an unveiling at CES in January. Sony evidently took fright at the NX1 and needs to convalesce a year or so to think up what to do.

  • Low light is often bad light too. The A7S won't cure bad white balance or extreme contrasts. An A7s with fast lens will also be vulnerable to lens flare. There is also likely to be some motion ...
  • XAVC S can be used as a format for video at assorted resolutions, including 4k.  However, I don't think any Sony camera supports 4k unless it has the requisite processors, sensor, or firmware. Firm ...
  • People have seen weddings in movies, but it may not dawn on them that the close-up facial shots were impossible without having a camera right at the altar or even behind the clergy / officiant.  ...
  • No auroras or glaciers visible where I live, just light pollution and slush. A macro shot of a dirty snowball with a glow-stick, maybe? Or "March Thaw: Diner Parking Lot with Neon Signs."

    The...

  • Lauterbrunnen farmers complained when BASE, wing suit, paraglider, and other aerial dare-devils began leaving corpses on their properties, scaring the cows. A disproportionate share of Alpine cows...

  • Try pointing a DSLR at yourself.  Real weird.  Difficult, too, even with a flip-out screen.  OVF totally useless for selfies. Imagine a DSLR on a "narci-stick" for shooting group selfies with ...
  • Neither the NX1 nor the a6000 perform as well as an entry DSLR in this realm.  The differences widen if there is back-lighting or low light. On YouTube, "Mike the Mentor" compares the NX1 to a ...
  • Replied in RX10ii vs RX10
    The RX10 is nearing its 2nd birthday.  Whether the RX10ii appears in June or September, Sony will be unable to price it much above the FZ1000 (now below $800), and the value of an RX10 will ...
  • A long, complex question about a fit between a specific camera and an accessory made by another company is difficult to answer. The only sure things are: 1) trial and error are part of the ...
  • Why Sony fails to put time-lapse on all cameras confounds me, since time-lapse apps exist for almost all smart phones and even the humble a5000. On the other hand, the Balanced Optical Steadyshot ...
  • When a product niche gets displaced by change, no point in projecting a future at all. What would the next improvements be for typewriters or photgraphic film?  One can theorize, but there would be ...
