Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III Officially Announced

Tyler Lee October 16, 2017

According to the rumors from last month, it was suggested that Canon had a new camera in the works in the form of the PowerShot G1 X Mark III that could be announced this month. It turns out the rumors were right on the money because Canon has since officially taken the wraps off the PowerShot G1 X Mark III.

The camera will feature a 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor along with the use of a DIGIC 7 image processor. Similar to its predecessors, the PowerShot G1 X Mark III will be a fixed lens camera and will come with a 24-72mm (35mm equivalent) 3x zoom lens, and given that focal length we reckon it should allow photographers to cover a variety of shots. Its aperture will range from f/2.8 at the widest to f/5.6 at max focal length which is pretty standard, but at f/2.8 we don’t expect you will get the same level of bokeh compared to that of f/1.4 or wider.

It will also come with a built-in EVF, a 3-inch vari-angle touchscreen LCD, dual pixel CMOS AF, image stabilization technology, an ISO range of up to 25,600, 9fps continuous shooting speeds, and there will also be built-in WiFi, NFC, and Bluetooth connectivity. The camera will also offer up dust and water-resistance, so taking it along with you for outdoor shoots should not pose a problem.

If this sounds like a camera you might be interested in getting your hands on, the Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III will be made available this coming November where it will be priced at $1,299.

Canon Could Have More Than One Full-Frame Camera In The Works

Tyler Lee October 6, 2017

Given how Sony is more or less having free reign with its full-frame mirrorless cameras with no one to challenge them, it doesn’t come as a surprise to learn that companies such as Canon and Nikon might have something in the works. In fact it seems that according to recent rumors, Canon might have more than one such camera in development.

In a report from Canon Rumors, they have heard that Canon apparently has three full-frame mirrorless cameras that they are development, although it seems that they are in different stages of development and that they might not all be released at once, but at least one model should be revealed by the end of 2018.

One of the cameras is said to be a full-frame mirrorless with a native EF mount, meaning that existing Canon camera owners should have no problems using their EF lenses with the device. The second device is said to be a smaller camera with a new mount which has been speculated to be a modified EF-M mount, and last but not least, the third model is rumored to be a full-frame mirrorless with a fixed lens and will most likely be skipping a 2018 launch.

Safe to say that you should take it with a grain of salt for now, but recent reports have indicated that Canon could be using a new dedicated sensor for its full-frame mirrorless lineup. We’ll definitely keep our eyes peeled for more information, but given that it’s only in 2018 that we’ll be seeing Canon announce something (if at all), we’ll be in for quite a wait.

Google Clips Uses AI To Capture Your Important Moments

Tyler Lee October 4, 2017

The problem with being the photographer is that most of the time you aren’t in the photos. This means that while you can capture some truly great and unexpected moments, the fact that you’re not in those photos can be something of a missed opportunity, like a great family moment and so on.

However Google wants to fix that by launching Clips. This is a tiny camera that according to Google is powered by machine learning so that it knows when to take a photo. According to Google, “We’ve put machine learning capabilities directly into Clips so when you turn it on, the camera looks for good moments to capture. Clips looks for stable, clear shots of people you know. You can help the camera learn who is important to you so when grandma comes in town, you’ll capture the grand entrance.”

However if you don’t quite trust the machine learning capabilities of Clips, not to worry as the camera comes with a shutter button that you can press physically, as well as an accompanying app that lets you capture photos remotely, so you can just set it down and just snap at moments you think are important to you.

Google Clips will play nicely with both iOS and Android devices and will be launching soon in the US where it will be priced at $250. Interestingly enough Google notes that the first-generation of Clips has been designed for parents and pet owners in mind, which has us wondering what future versions could be like?

Canon’s Full-Frame Mirrorless Rumored To Use A Dedicated Sensor

Tyler Lee October 3, 2017

It was initially thought that it was impossible to shrink down a full-frame sensor that could fit into a non-DSLR body, but that’s exactly what Sony has done where they have launched not only full-frame mirrorless cameras, but full-frame compacts as well. This has ultimately spurred the competition to work on similar devices.

In fact Canon is one of them as we have been hearing rumors that the company had a full-frame mirrorless in the works. Now according to a new report from Canon Rumors, they have heard from their sources that the rumored Canon full-frame mirrorless might actually feature its own dedicated sensor, versus reusing a full-frame sensor found on other Canon cameras like the EOS 6D Mark II or the EOS 5D Mark IV.

Apparently this information was revealed during an internal presentation that laid out Canon’s roadmap for the future. Unfortunately details about this particular sensor is unclear so we’re not sure what to expect. However the report does claim that we probably shouldn’t expect to hear an announcement at least until August 2018 which is roughly around Photokina.

This is in line with earlier rumors that suggested that Canon’s full-frame mirrorless might only be launched in 2018. It will be interesting to see if the rumors are true, especially when you consider that Nikon is also said to be working on a full-frame mirrorless of their own.

GoPro Hero 6 Black Could Be Announced September 28

Tyler Lee September 19, 2017

If you’re after a new GoPro camera, then you might have heard that GoPro has a new camera in the works in the form of the GoPro Hero 6 Black. Photos of the camera have recently leaked and according to the rumors, the camera is said to offer up better video recording than before at 4K resolution with a framerate of 60 FPS.

However the question is when will the camera be announced? According to a new report from Photo Rumors, it seems that the GoPro Hero 6 Black could be announced as soon the 28th of September which is in about a week’s time. The report claims that the camera will also begin selling on the same day so customers will be able to go out and get their hands on it right away if they wish.

In terms of pricing we’re not sure quite sure how GoPro will price its new camera, but we don’t expect it to deviate too much from its predecessor. It could potentially cost a bit more than before, but it should still roughly be in the same ballpark. Photos of the device have also shown that GoPro hasn’t done much to change the design with the Hero 6 Black, or at least nothing major. In any case we should have the official details soon enough, so check back with us soon if you’d like to learn more about it.

Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III Rumored For Mid-October

Tyler Lee September 18, 2017

When it comes to compact cameras, Canon’s PowerShot G-series is one that is favored by many photographers, even professionals who might just want a compact camera to take with them on a holiday as opposed to their bulky DSLRs, so you can imagine that many are curious to see what the future of the series holds.

Now just last month, there were rumors that the Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III could be announced “soon”, and a new report from Canon Rumors has suggested that soon could be early as next month. They have heard that the announcement could be taking place mid-October and we are looking at either an announcement on a Tuesday or Friday as per Canon’s previous announcements.

Of course this is a rumor so do take it with a grain of salt, but if a new compact camera is something you’ve been eyein then this could be worth waiting for. As for the specs of the PowerShot G1 X Mark III, word has it that the camera will feature a 24MP APS-C sensor, dual pixel AF, a DIGIC 7 image processor, and will come with a 24-120mm lens, which will make this a camera ideal for people who love zoom photography.

In any case we should find out soon enough so do check back with us in the coming weeks for the details, if there are any to be had.

Nikon’s Next Mirrorless Will Be A Full-Frame Camera

Tyler Lee September 17, 2017

It’s safe to say that Nikon’s mirrorless efforts haven’t really paid off much for the company, unlike Sony or Fujifilm, but it seems that Nikon isn’t quite done yet. In a recent interview with Chinese publication Xitek (via Nikon Rumors), it seems that Nikon’s next mirrorless could make a huge splash as it will be of the full-frame variety.

As it stands it seems that only Sony has full-frame mirrorless cameras, but Nikon will apparently not be resting on their laurels. During the interview, they spoke to Nikon’s R&D manager Tetsuro Goto who said that any future Nikon mirrorless camera will be of the full-frame variety.

Nikon had previously hinted that they had a new mirrorless camera in the works that was “serious”, so it stands to believe that it could be full-frame as well. This is actually not the first time that Nikon hinted at full-frame mirrorless cameras, although when exactly this camera will be released remains to be seen, but it’s definitely something to look forward to given Nikon’s experience and reputation when it comes to cameras.

That being said, Nikon rival Canon is also said to be working on a full-frame mirrorless camera as well that could debut in 2018, so it remains to be seen who might get to the market first.

Fujifilm X-E3 Mirrorless Camera Announced

Tyler Lee September 7, 2017

If you’re after a new mirrorless camera that offers up a rangefinder-style design similar to the Fujifilm X-Pro2, but you don’t want to spend the money on the X-Pro2 (which is admittedly rather pricey), you’ll be pretty chuffed to learn that Fujifilm might have a cheaper alternative for you in the form of the recently announced X-E3.

This camera is one of Fujifilm’s latest mirrorless offerings and offers up a rangefinder-style camera that is more affordable. Of course given the cheaper price tag it is clear that there will be some compromises in terms of specs and features, but for the most part the X-E3 will be retaining the same 24MP APS-C X-Trans III sensor used in the X-Pro2, X-T2, and the X100F.

It will also use the X-Processor Pro image signal processor and offers up physical external dials for quick access to the shutter speed, exposure compensation, and there will also be a small joystick introduced in the X-Pro2 and X100F that users can customize to their liking, like choosing an AF area and so on.

The X-E3 will also come with a pure electronic viewfinder so if you wanted a hybrid, you’d be out of luck. It will also sport a touchscreen display, but it also means that Fujifilm has done away with the traditional D-pad controls, so if you did prefer physical controls over touch then you might be disappointed. In terms of pricing, the X-E3 is priced starting at $900 for body-only, and will for $1,300 with an 18-55mm f/2.8-4 lens, or $1,150 for the 23mm f/2 prime lens, all of which will be available at the end of this month.

Ricoh Theta V 360-Degree 4K Camera Announced

Tyler Lee August 31, 2017

#IFA2017 – These days taking just “normal” photos aren’t enough, and with virtual reality becoming more mainstream, the need to be able to take photos and videos in 360-degrees is becoming more necessary than ever. If you’re looking to create VR content, then you might be interested to learn that Ricoh has recently announced the Theta V 360-degree camera.

Note that this is not the first time that Ricoh has dabbled in VR because earlier this year, the company unveiled a 360-degree camera, so in reality the Theta V is not the first VR-capable camera by the company. However unlike the previous model, the Theta V is capable of capturing 4K footage which should help make 360-degree videos a bit more realistic due to the added details.

However in addition to being able to capture photos and video, the Theta V is also capable of spatial audio recording, high-speed image transfer, and is also capable of wireless remote playback, which Ricoh claims is the world’s first for a 360-degree camera. Of course whether or not you need such features is up to you, but Ricoh will be accepting pre-orders for it right away.

For those who are interested, the Ricoh Theta V is priced at $430 and will be available for pre-order via Ricoh’s website.

Sony Unveils RX0 Rugged Action Camera

Tyler Lee August 31, 2017

When it comes rugged action cameras that are small and compact, it’s hard not to think of GoPro, but this does not mean that other companies aren’t trying to steal some of GoPro’s market share. In fact it seems that Sony wants in on the action as the company has recently taken the wraps off the RX0.

The RX0 is part of Sony’s RX lineup of cameras, but as you can see in the photo above this is a camera clearly designed to be an action camera, where it is small enough to be brought with you on trips, and also small enough for it to be mounted on helmets or worn on your gear without adding too much weight and bulk.

However don’t let its small size fool you because according to Sony, the RX0 will pack a 1.0-type stacked 15.3MP Exmor RS CMOS image sensor. It will also feature a ZEISS Tessar T* 24mm f/4 wide-angle lens, allowing users to capture more of the action. It will also have a maximum shutter speed of 1/32,000 and will also be able to shoot at speeds of up to 16 fps.

In terms of its measurements, the RX0 is pretty compact at 3.9 oz and measures 2.38 x 1.63 x 1.19 inches. It is also rugged where it can be waterproof up to depths of 10m, shockproof from heights of up to 2m, and crushproof up to 200kg. The RX0 is priced at $700 and is expected to be released this coming October.
