New Sony Sensors

It’s common knowledge that Sony produces most of the camera sensors for professional and consumer use. This week Sony announced their road-map for 2017-18 and it includes 100 megapixel and 150 megapixel sensors. Just what people were asking for.. more megapixels! *Sarcasm*

There is no news if any future Sony A7R Mark III would include such a sensor, but at this time it looks like all we can do now is wait and buy more hard-drives.

Leaked photos of a new Canon macro lens

There are now leaked photos of a Canon EF-S 35mm f/2.8 macro lens out in the wild. It has a minimum focusing distance of 3 centimeters, built-in IS and STM, and weighing in at 190 grams.

It’s scheduled to be announced on April 6th and is likely designed to replace the Canon EF-S 60mm macro lens, which uses the older USM.

The 35mm focal length is rather wide for a macro lens, but follows suit with other entry level macro lenses from other manufacturers like Nikon’s 40mm and Sony’s 30mm lenses.

4K Video now available on the Canon 5D Mark III

This news was what everyone thought to be an April Fools joke.. but it turns out to be real. Magic Lantern has unlocked 4K recording on the Canon 5d Mark III.

It’s great news for anyone with a Canon 5D Mark III who shoots video and doesn’t want to make the move to the recently released Canon 5D Mark IV, or any mirror-less camera that has been released in the past couple of years.. because nearly all of them shoots 4K these days.

Inspire 2 with a telephoto lens

Results from Jon Olsson’s recent vlog were quite impressive after his purchase of a telephoto lens to put on his DJI Inspire 2. You could say they are reminiscent of Michael Bay-esque imagery.

Condom Lifehacks for Photographers

I don’t think this is what condoms were originally intended for, but if you’re recently single, at least you now have use for them again!

Canon working to let you take a ‘new kind of photo’

A French publication, Focus Numerique, interviewed Canon executives about the future of their lenses in Japan. A comment that stood out to us and clearly a lot of other people is:

Without being permitted to tell you more, we are developing a new technology that will bring real added value and will allow you to take a new type of photo.

This could be mistranslated, but based on Canon’s history, it could be very true. Canon has had a long history of improving lens technology — an area most manufacturers tend to ignore.

When Nikon was using an in-body motor to drive the auto-focusing system in their lenses, Canon developed a faster and more reliable auto-focusing system in their lenses. They auto-focus fast enough that it wasn’t a gimmick. Today every manufacturer puts AF motors into their lenses.

It will be nice to see some innovation, unless they’re just planning to rebrand existing lenses with a fly-by-wire system. I don’t want to see a Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 Mark III UNLESS it has image stabilization. If it has image stabilization, then that’s okay.
