This Universal Lens Cap Could Be The Last Lens Cap You’ll Ever Need

Tyler Lee December 13, 2017

If you’re a photographer who owns or has dabbled with interchangeable lens cameras like DSLRs or mirrorless cameras, then you know how annoying it is whenever you misplace a lens cap. This means having to spend more money, and in the meantime it could also mean that your lens glass could get scratched.

However the folks at KUVRD have launched a Kickstarter project for an accessory they’re calling the Universal Lens Cap (ULC for short). This is a lens cap that has been designed to fit pretty much every/any lens out there, regardless of shape or size. This is versus current lens caps which you’ll have to buy different caps for different lenses.

Apart from being able to fit just about any lens out there, it has also been designed to stay securely fastened to your camera lens. If you’ve seen existing camera lenses, then you know how flimsy they can be, and how sometimes accidentally knocking against it could shake it loose.

This is where we also want to point out how the ULC has also been designed to protect your lens, not just from having the glass scratched, but also by protecting it against the elements as it is both water and dirt proof, and it is also shock absorbent. The ULC is priced at $30 for a single unit, or $45 for two, $60 for three, and so on.

Canon EOS 7D MK III Rumored For March 2018

Tyler Lee November 27, 2017

The Canon EOS 7D MK II was officially launched back in September 2014 which means that it has been about 3 years since its launch and probably means that it’s due for an upgrade. This is why it doesn’t come as a surprise to learn that according to the folks at Canon Rumors have heard that the EOS 7D MK III could be announced next year.

The publication has heard from their sources that the camera could be announced in March 2018. Assuming this is correct, once again we’re not that shocked at the possible date as CP+ is taking place in March, and announcing the EOS 7D MK III then does make sense. Unfortunately details on the camera are scarce at this point in time.

However Canon Rumor’s sources are claiming that the camera will be capable of shooting 4K video, something which is pretty much the norm these days, especially when you consider that even our smartphones are capable of doing that. Their source also mentions something about a “first time sensor” for a Canon DSLR, hinting that maybe Canon could include some kind of new sensor for the EOS 7D MK III.

In any case hopefully additional details about the EOS 7D MK III will be revealed soon, but until then take it with a grain of salt.

Nikon D850 Press Release Photos Leaked Ahead Of Announcement

Tyler Lee August 22, 2017

The Nikon D850 exists and we know that because back in July, Nikon confirmed that they are working on it and that the camera is expected to be the successor to the Nikon D810 from a few years ago. However apart from that confirmation, things like specs and also photos of the camera have yet to be revealed, or at least until now.

The folks at Nikon Rumors have recently managed to get their hands on a bunch of photos that appear to be part of the press release that Nikon is expected to put out in the near future, meaning that this is as official as it gets. According to Nikon, the D850 will be a full-frame camera, but the company stopped short of actually sharing specs like megapixel count, shooting speeds, and so on.

However if the rumors are accurate, the D850 is said to sport a 45-46MP full-frame sensor and will apparently be borrowing certain features from the higher-end Nikon D5. In fact previous reports have gone as far as calling the D850 a “baby” version of the D5, so we guess if you wanted some of the D5’s features but didn’t want to spend the money, the D850 could be a good (and cheaper) alternative.

In any case with all these leaks we expect that an official announcement could be made soon, so do check back with us in the coming days/weeks for the details if there are any to be had.

New Nikon D850 Photo Leaked

Tyler Lee August 14, 2017

If you’re a photographer who is in the market for a new professional DSLR, or a hobbyist looking for more “serious” gear, then you might have heard that Nikon has a new camera in the works in the form of the Nikon D850, which the company has confirmed is real and does exist, although specs and design remain a bit of a mystery for now.

However thanks to images uploaded and shared on the digicamera.net forums (via Nikon Rumors) by user Hel_NiS, a p photo of the camera has found its way online. Unfortunately this photo does not show us the complete look of the camera, but for the most part it doesn’t look like Nikon will be changing the design of the camera too much.

The front and top portion of the camera where the Nikon branding is placed also seems to confirm that there will be no pop-up flash, but other than that we guess it shouldn’t be surprising that Nikon is sticking to the same design (maybe with some changes or variations) that they’ve been using for the past few years.

The D850 will be a new full-frame camera by Nikon and it is expected to introduce a 46MP sensor along with 4K video capture. It is also said to sport some features borrowed from the Nikon D5, and the rumored prices have hinted that this camera will not come cheap, but hopefully we’ll have the official details soon.

Leaked Translated Nikon D850 Slides Confirms Its Specs

Tyler Lee August 11, 2017

While Nikon might have confirmed that they are working on the Nikon D850 camera, apart from it being a full-frame camera that is the successor to the D810, the company stopped short of sharing the specs and features that we might be able to expect. However thanks to leaked slides, we might know more about the camera already.

The slides were posted in Chinese but a translation by Nikon Rumors has confirmed some of the camera’s specs. For starters the camera will feature a 45.7MP sensor which is in line with the earlier rumors that suggested anywhere between 45-46MP. The slides also confirm a 3.2-inch touchscreen LCD display that can be tilted.

The D850 also appears to be capable of shooting at 9fps when combined with a battery pack, support 8K timelapse capture, 4K video capture, an ISO range of 64 up to 25,600, a 153-point AF system, and a 180,000 RGB sensor. For those most part this is in line with what we’ve heard, although it seems that an earlier report of a hybrid viewfinder could have been false.

There is still no word on when Nikon is expected to fully unveil the D850, but given the leaked specs and the photos, it does seem to suggest that we could be nearing an official announcement, so check back with us in the near future for more updates.

More Alleged Nikon D850 Features/Specifications Leaked

Tyler Lee August 1, 2017

The Nikon D850 is a camera that Nikon has recently confirmed that they are working on. However despite the company making it announcement of the camera official, they have not really revealed much about it, save for the fact that it will be a full-frame camera that is also meant to be the successor to the D810.

That being said, the folks at Nikon Rumors have recently published a bunch of specs and features of the upcoming camera that will hopefully be proven true. Starting with what we’ve heard so far, the D850 is said to feature a 46MP full frame CMOS sensor and shares the same AF system as the Nikon D850.

It is also said to feature an improved version of SnapBridge, a tiltable LCD touchscreen display, and supports two sticks of memory cards. Other rumored features also suggests back illuminated buttons, a joystick selector, built-in Bluetooth and WiFi, 8K time-lapse video capabilities, 4K UHD video in FX format, slow-mo Full HD 120fps video, an improved LCD with twice the resolution of the D810, improved battery life, a lighter body, and shooting speeds of 8fps.

Sounds good, doesn’t it? Unfortunately it won’t come cheap either as Nikon Rumors has heard that the camera should be priced just under $4,000, or around $3,600 to be more specific. Clearly this isn’t aimed at amateurs but for the professional or serious hobbyist, it could be a worthy investment.

Nikon And Canon Announce Delays For Some Of Their Cameras

Tyler Lee July 31, 2017

If you were thinking of getting your hands on either the 100th anniversary edition of the Nikon D5, or the recently launched Canon EOS 6D MK II, then you might be disappointed to learn that coincidentally enough both cameras have been announced as being delayed. These announcements were made by Nikon and Canon respectively on their websites.

According to Nikon’s website and based on the translation, it reads, “Regarding the following models that were scheduled to be released on July 28, we will postpone the release in early August, as it takes time to final adjust the product. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience incurring a great deal to customers waiting for product launch.”

As for Canon, note that the delay only seems to apply to the EOS 6D MK II with the kit lens bundle. Canon’s website reads, “Digital SLR camera that we are planning to release on August 4 EOS 6D Mark II · EF 24-70 F4L IS USM Lens Kit We are currently receiving very many orders that exceed the plan and deliver goods It is expected that you will receive your time.”

Based on the wording it seems that this only applies to those who want to purchase the camera with the kit lens, which means that if you don’t mind body-only then you might be able to get your hands on it earlier.

Nikon D850 Rumored To Be The ‘Baby’ Version Of The D5

Tyler Lee July 31, 2017

So Nikon has confirmed that they have a new DSLR camera in the works in the form of the Nikon D850. This is supposed to be the successor to the Nikon D810 that was released several years ago, but apart from the camera featuring a full-frame sensor, not much is known about it save for some rumored specs and features.

Unfortunately it seems that we will still have to wait for Nikon to unveil more details, but in the meantime the folks at Nikon Rumors have published some additional details about the camera, which according to them will basically result in the D850 being a “baby” version of the D5, which is one of Nikon’s higher-end cameras.

According to the report, the D850 will feature 10fps shooting speeds, which might be useful for those looking to shoot action or sports photos. It is also rumored to sport a 46MP full-frame sensor, and that it will apparently be priced at 1,000 Euros more than that of the D810. In fact it seems that the launch of the D850 will not see the D810 being discontinued as it has been rumored that both cameras will exist side-by-side.

Recently there have been rumors to suggest that the D850 could sport a hybrid viewfinder system that combines an OVF with an EVF, but there has been some skepticism about those claims, but either way take it with a grain of salt for now.

Nikon D850 Could Potentially Come WIth A Hybrid Viewfinder

Tyler Lee July 27, 2017

So Nikon has officially announced that they are working on the Nikon D850, but the specs and features of the camera are still unknown. However one possible feature of the camera might have been uncovered as pointed out in a photo uploaded by Flickr user anankephi (via Peta Pixel).

The photo is actually based on a leaked press render that was uploaded by Nikon Rumors just the other day, and according to anankephi, he points out to the viewfinder section in the photo in which there are two circular cutouts on either side. You might assume that these are just screw holes to keep the viewfinder in place, but it has since been speculated that these are actually eye detection sensors that could activate the EVF in the camera.

This has also led to speculation that the D850 could be packing a hybrid system that combines an OVF with an EVF. For the most part, DSLRs usually come with an OVF, whilst mirrorless cameras sport an EVF. The argument to be made is that OVFs have pretty much no lag, but what you see in the frame might not necessarily be the same once the shutter button has been pressed.

EVFs on the other hand allow photographers to capture exactly what they see, although the downside is that if you’re trying to pan around with an EVF, you will notice some lag. A hybrid viewfinder system could offer photographers the best of both worlds, and possible allow them to toggle between either system. Like we said Nikon has yet to share any official details so take it with a grain of salt for now.

Alleged Nikon D850 Press Photos Leaked

Tyler Lee July 26, 2017

Recently Nikon confirmed that they are working on a new camera that would be the successor to the Nikon D810. This will come in the form of the Nikon D850, and while the confirmation of the camera’s existence is great news, unfortunately not much is known about the camera or how it looks like, at least until now.

The folks at Nikon Rumors have managed to get their hands on what appears to be leaked press photos of the upcoming camera. For the most part it seems that the design of the camera hasn’t changed much, but then again DSLRs have largely sported similar-ish designs so we doubt that Nikon would have broken away from tradition.

However the photos, if real and accurate, shows off a tilting LCD display which is one of the camera’s rumored features. It also seems that the pentaprism used in the D850 differs from other Nikon DSLRs, like the Nikon D5 and the D810, the latter of which had a built-in pop-up flash, while the D850 seems to have done away with it.

The D850 will be a full-frame camera and its megapixel count is said to be between 45-46 megapixels, but Nikon hasn’t confirmed it yet. It is also rumored to sport the same AF system as the Nikon D5, and will feature an improved version of Snapbridge. There is no specific date on the full unveiling, so check back with us in the coming days/weeks for the details.
