    Sony A7 IV Unveiled: 33MP Sensor & ISO 200,000!

    It's interesting to follow the comments on this highly anticipated launch. Although the improvements of the Mark IV are substantial, it's questionable if they are enough reason to upgrade for most stills photographers, and the comments reflect that. For video it's different, and this camera is...

    Z9

    They talk about a D3 Moment. I'd call it a D3 Moment with a D3X and a cine cam included. It's difficult not to be enthusiastic about this camera.

    Z 28 and 40

    This review might be of interest. Generally very positive, and Richard is such a civilised reviewer:

    How do the New Nikon Z lenses compare to the Sony G

    Jack, you just brought me several inches closer to a Z-body. Very informative.

    How do the New Nikon Z lenses compare to the Sony G

    The Z9 is a full-size, built-like-a-fortress kind of camera body, presumably with all the latest bells and whistles. Sony makes fine cameras, but for demanding photography work, there's nothing like the big Nikons (and Canons). When it comes to image quality, features and lenses, the differences...

    Z9

    And here's Ricci's take:

    Z9

    Given the subject matter in the teaser, I suppose it's the 100-400mm. Here's the official link to the second teaser, in Full HD: https://www.nikon-image.com/sp/teaser_2021/

    Z9

    I believe the Z6 II offers 8 bit internal, 10 bit external and 12 bit RAW, but this is a very different camera, presumably with much faster processors. To be competitive in this class, they should be able to do 10 bit 4:2:2 30p, 4:2:0 at 60p internally and 8 bit over that. That's what the much...

    Z9

    Yes, 4320 is the vertical resolution of 8K. It's a bit odd that it doesn't say 7680 or simply 8K though. However, if it can shoot unlimited 8K, it can probably also shoot unlimited 4K/120. This camera looks increasingly tempting. Guess I just have to start saving. Lens looks like the 70-200.

    Z9

    My guess is that it will have a sensor built on the one in the Sony A1, or one very similar to it. Would Sony sell its most advanced sensor to a competitor? They have no choice if they are going to stay relevant as a supplier of high-end sensors. To me it's very simple; if I can afford it I'll...

    Z9

    Here's the first of 4 teasers. I notice a few changes from earlier full-size Nikon bodies: - They have moved the playback button to the right side of the body. That's a big plus, since one can review images in the viewfinder without moving the left hand which would in many cases be holding...

    Nick Brandt - The day may break

    I agree on what you say about film vs. digital. In search for digital perfection, he, and many other photographers, lose the raw dynamics that often come with film, particularly high contrast and/or large grain b&w films. I would go as far as saying that his story would come through clearer with...

    Fun with 4/3rds cameras/ Image Thread

    Yes, but how often do I use a zoom lens at f/2.8? I have primes for that. For ultra-wide and long telephoto lenses, the quality differences are to much to ingnore, but for standard zooms, kit lenses have become pretty darn good. This one I was given for free from a person who just had to have a...

    Fun with 4/3rds cameras/ Image Thread

    You bet. Her only complaint was that she wasn't allowed to use the stepladder to get all the way to the top. That lens is a gem btw. Sharp, lightweight and compact. Makes me wonder why I'm spending extra money on "pro" lenses.
