We don’t usually do cheap photo alerts twice in a row, but there are really big Canon, Nikon and Sony discounts/rebates in place that end tomorrow: 3/28/2015.
For even more deals though, check out yesterday’s listing.
Sony Alpha Rumors is reporting on a new patent that features a Curved Full Frame Sensor. Sound familiar? It should. Sony has had this patent for a while, and they keep begin associated with the rumored RX2. But a new patent also shows that this curved sensor will work with lenses that are not only smaller, seemingly have a slower aperture. However, due to the curve and some weird rules of physics, the sensor will let in more light.
When it comes to the full frame game, SAR cites:
29.96mm f/2.06 (likely to become a 30mm f/2.0)
36mm f/1.85 (likely to become a 35mm f/1.8)
36mm f/2.85 (likely to become a 35mm f/2.8)
36mm f/2.26 (likely to become a 35mm f/2.0)
Now this means that the lenses will be a bit smaller than they normally would be, but it’s interesting how it all works. Sony Alpha Rumors also describes it for smaller sensor if it indeed happens.
The folks over at the Camera Store have updated their Mirrorless Party video, and this time around everyone has changed a bit more. The video features Panasonic, Leica, Samsung, Sony, Olympus, Nikon and Fujifilm.
Oh right, and at some point Canon shows up. That’s better than Pentax at least!
The video parodies each company and their marketing/characteristics like Sony’s lack of native lenses, Fujifilm’s quietness, Samsung’s quiet confidence, Panasonic’s 4K video shooting feature and more. You’ll enjoy the good portion of time that the personified Nikon camera spends talking about himself.
The Mirrorless Party 2015 is after the jump. Get ready for a bit of a chuckle.
After our standard Pro zoom lens shoot out, we decided to put the telephoto lenses against one another. As mirrorless camera systems have evolved and continue to develop, they’ve had to meet the demands of professional photographers who have picked up their systems. One of the classic zoom lenses that many photographers tend to reach for is the equivalent of a 70-200mm f2.8 lens. These lenses are great for portraits, events, weddings, landscapes and pretty much anything that you can think of due to their versatility.
So with Fujifilm, Samsung, Olympus, and Panasonic all offering their own versions, which one is the best?
