Categories:
Photokina changed from a bi-annual conference to an annual conference and while Canon, Sony, and Panasonic are going to attend, Nikon,Leica, and Olympus have passed up the trade show. Is this the end for trade snows? Has the internet replaced the need for them?

Canon to make a dual EF/RF Mount Hybrid Camera

12/04/2019
Categories:
Since Canon and Nikon are being pummeled by Sony in the Glass for mirrorless cameras, Canon has come up with a solution. They are making a mirrorless camera that has both the RF and the EF mounts ... somehow. I'm not sure how this works, but if they pull it off, they will just have added hundreds of Canon lenses(and 3rd party lenses) to be available to their mirrorless cameras. Nikon should take notice and do this with the F mount and Z mount in one Camera.

Sony Takes #1 in Full Frame Camera Market

12/03/2019
Categories:
Sony has de-throned Canon and has taken #1 in the full-frame market this year. Nikon suffered the worst losses in the full-frame segment, losing 5.1% market share. This is due to the rise of full-frame mirrorless and the decline of full-frame DSLR. Although full-frame only makes up 11% of the overall camera market, it will become an ever more increasingly important market segment.

Olympus selling Camera Business? Nikon discontinuing Sports Optic line?

11/21/2019

To please large investors, Olympus says they are putting everything on the table, including selling their Camera business. The imaging department of Olympus makes up only 6% of its sales and is the lowest margin and lowest growth of all of Olympus's businesses. This could be bad for MFT fans. Nikon says that it may discontinue its Sports product lines, which include scopes, lasers, and red dots. Coincidentally, I did not know they had these products at all.

Canon comes out with 2 new EOS M cameras

Canon is making 2 more EOS M Cameras. This surprises me since their EOS R has already come out and I thought for sure they were going to ditch M and concentrate on EOS R for APS-C as well.

Cameras don't need upgrading

When I go to wedding and look at the cameras that wedding photographers are using, rarely is it a new Sony A7R III or A7R IV. The vast majority of the time, it is an old camera like the Nikon D610 or the Canon 5d Mark III. Even when I am out shooting wildlife, my D750 is still one of the newer models I see people use. There are still people shooting with D810s or Original 6D's or 7d Mark II's or Original 7d's. So that brings up the question, are cameras so good now that it takes people a decade before they need to upgrade and what does that mean for the industry as a whole?

Sony A7IV specs -- looks like the A7III to me

11/14/2019
Categories:
Rumored specs for the Sony A7IV have been released and it looks a bit underwhelming. Same sensor, same AF points with new Movie eye-AF. The only significant improvements I see are the LCD and the viewfinder but that is not enough for me to upgrade.

Nikon D760 Early specs -- quite a letdown

11/13/2019
Categories:
Nikon release early specs for the D760 today and they are --- underwhelming. I don't see a reason to upgrade my D750 and I don't see how this Camera can compete with the A7IV that will most likely come out around the same time.

Point and Shoots or ILC Cameras, the real battle begins

11/12/2019
Categories:
Special point and shoot Cameras like the Nikon P1000 and the Sony RX10 IV are getting better than ever so is it just better to purchase and carry around these powerful Point and Shoot Cameras rather than lug around a full-frame camera and a giant bag of Lenses?

NIkon D750 vs Canon T2i vs Iphone 11 vs Pixel 4 for Astrophotography

11/10/2019
Categories:
The new Astrophotography options for the Iphone 11 and especially the computational photograhy for the Pixel 4 have brought a lot of intrigue to astrophotography, but how close are they to pro DSLR or Mirrorless quality Astro photos? While they have improved dramatically, they are still not nearly as good as a good Camera and real Astro Glass and they new phones do cost $1000 or more.
