Nikon not updating the D610/D750 a mistake?

03/12/2018
Categories:


There are people who are telling me that Nikon will not be updating the D610 or D750 in their DSLR models and will only be updating the D850 and above models in their lineup while pursuing a mirror-less camera with a different mount. I think this is a big mistake because now neither Canon or Nikon have anything that is competitive in the $2000 full-frame range with the A7III which is basically superior to both of them in just about every way. People who are coming into this range for a full-frame camera often are locking themselves into a line for full-frame glass too and many eventually upgrade to a higher model like the D850, 5d Mark IV, or A7RIII. Letting go of this section of the market means that people are going to be upgrading more to the Sony line than the Canon or Nikon ones and I think this could prove to be a crucial mistake for Nikon down the line.

Does the Nikon Management Team need some new Faces?

03/08/2018
Categories:


Last year an article reported that the corporate Nikon Team in Japan was composed of all Japanese Guys with no women and foreigners. Aside from the D850, most of their recent decisions have been a flop and they were in the red in 2016 financially. Is it high time to get some diversity and new faces in the room for better decisions?

Should Nikon update their DSLR or go all in on mirrorless?

03/07/2018
Categories:


After Sony came out with the A7III at $2000, Nikon has to make a decision on whether to update their D610/D750 line to compete with the A7III or skip that and go all-in on their new mirrorless Camera. Which makes more business sense?

Yongnuo 50mm F/1.8 lens

This is a review on the cheap Yongnuo 50mm f/1.8 lens. Its only about 40% of the price of the Canon and Nikon f/1.8. But how is its image quality at that price and it is worth a buy for those on a tight budget.

Finally got the full specs for the Canon M50 and we can now compare it directly to its mirrorless competition, the Sony A6300, which is at about the same price. For all of Canon's marketing and development, can it beat the competition?

The Sony A7III has just been announced. It has:

10fps(8 in live view)
24mp
15 claimed stops of DR
Excellent high ISO performance
693 Phase detect and 425 contrast detection
Full 4k
Dual Card Slots
Joystick for controlling AF points

At $2000, looks like the best deal on the table.

Fanboys often fanatically defend their brand against any kind of criticism. But every single camera system has a lot of faults. How many of these Fanboys have actually shot a camera outside their own system and can make fair comparisons?

Canon M50 Rumors

There have been rumors of the new Canon M50 Mirrorless Camera. Will it be a serious run for Canon at Mirrorless or will it be a one time thing like the M5? It is rumored to have 4k, which is amazing -- for Canon. But I think it will be playing catch up to Sony.
