Cameras don't need upgrading

11/16/2019
Categories:
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

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.

Sony A7IV -- Upgrades I want to see over the Sony A7III

11/07/2019
Categories:
Since the Sony A7RIV is out, we can start speculating on the A7IV because it will probably come out in about 6 months of so in the spring. The A7III was by far the best camera in its class at the time and the A7IV should follow that trend. However, there are some things I want to see improved from the last version including:

30-35 MP sensor
Flippy screen
Better feeling Rubber and Ergonomics
Better LCD

Nikon Rumors and Lenses for 2020

11/06/2019
Categories:
Nikon Rumors had an article today about new Nikon products slated for 2020. It seems that the D6 is going to be arriving in January, a few months earlier than I had expected. They are looking for replacements for the D850, D750, D500 and D7500 as well. I expect only the D750 will have a DSLR replacement and the rest will be mirrorless. As for their Mirrorless APS-C line, they will have two more lines, one above the Z50 and one below the Z-50.

Nikon NOCT F/.95 lens sold out, first snow of winter, why I'm disappointed in humanity

10/31/2019
Categories:
It came as a shock to me that Nikon stopped their pre-orders of the NOCT F/.95 lens because there had been too many ordered. I thought no one should lay down the $8000 for a 54mm lens when an f/1.2 or even F/1.4 would easily do the trick. After all, only Leica owners would lay down such a crazy price for a 54mm lens right? No! I was wrong. Which leaves me bewildered and disappointed in humanity.
