"The a63000 is also capable of 4K video capture at up to 100 Mbps. The camera uses a 20MP (6K) region of the sensor to offer 2.4x oversampled 4K video with full pixel readout, and no pixel binning. Videographers should be able to expect sharp, low noise footage, even in low light since almost the entire sensor is sampled."

A63000?

it would have been interesting if they turned the sensor 90 degrees like the original Pen (ie portrait style). Useful, no. But interesting and it would differentiate it from all the other Olympus mirrorless cameras.

Wow, that's actually a pretty good deal (ex-zr3000) considering it has a slightly larger 1/1.7 sensor.

Greg VdB: If the new 7-bladed aperture means an improvement on bokeh (look her for instance how "special" the old one is: http://www.pbase.com/gbleek/image/37881395), I fully intend to buy one. The improved focus ring should now make it a viable option for astrophotography.

Andrea, I agree, and because there is no hard stops on the focus ring or a distance scale. it will be more difficult to find infinity compared to micromotor or USM.

Just my opinion but I don't think STM AF is good for astrophotography due to it not having hard stops.

Those must be the new phase detection points ;)

On article Opinion: Canon EOS 750D and 760D (321 comments in total)

"The Rebel T6s / EOS 750D is designed in the 'classic' Rebel way, with no top-plate mounted LCD screen and with the exposure mode dial on the upper-right of the body. "

I believe this is a typo and is instead to be T6i.

On article Canon EOS 6D In-Depth Review (81 comments in total)
In reply to:

mattgoblue: I use a 50D for my high school sports work but wanted a full frame for portraiture. I purchased the 6d and am happy with it but can't seem to figure out how to get to the low ISO's (100 & 50). I set the ISO range to 50-1600 in the menu but the lowest ISO I can select still only goes to 200. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you have Highlight Tone Priority turned on, the lowest ISO speed will be 200. For lower ISO, turn off HTP.

On article Sigma updates USB dock for new lenses (20 comments in total)
In reply to:

beavertown: Does this USB dock also used for unbreak of 3rd party lenses support in the future? Like nasty Nikon switched off Tamron A005 for the V1 via dirty firmware update.

If yes, Tamron and other 3rd party lenses manufacturers should release a dock like Sigma does.

Yes, Sigma had firmware update for their lens for Nikon cameras that had the "updated" firmware. Example D5300.

Canon, fix my 70D's wide aperture autofocus issue.

Direct link | Posted on Sep 5, 2014 at 03:12 UTC as 12th comment

Aww, I thought it was going to be a recall for the 70D's phase detection auto-focus sensor.

I am guessing this camera is made in the same cheap chinese factory as all the other small sensored super zooms from Kodak, Fujifilm, Afga, and Samsung.
