Hands-on with the Fuji GFX 100S

The Fuji GFX 100S is like a medium format X-H1, with very capable filmmaking abilities. I had a hands-on at FotoMax in Berlin, to find out whether Sony should be worried. Apparently sales of the GFX 100S at $6000 have been very positive so far, and people have snapped up the chance to get the world’s best sensor in a smaller body at a much smaller...

Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra with 1″ sensor and 8K video gets reviewed – Why a technical marvel cannot come close to flattering the subject

Somebody with a clue about photography needs to walk into the Chinese smartphone manufacturers and tell them how to do things. In 2014 the Panasonic CM1 with large 1″ sensor came along and there’s been a 7 year wait for another 1″ smartphone to add the latest computational photography image processing. The Samsung ISOCELL GN2 in the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra...

Adobe Creative Cloud finally has some competition. Communist Creative Cloud has been launched today in Berlin! The three PC terminals are subscription based, and are wheeled to you once per month for the important competition of your communist propaganda leaflets.

Sigma Fp L adds long awaited phase-detect AF to L-mount system, 61MP sensor and 4K RAW

Now we know what the L stands for in Sigma Fp-L. Landscape, or possibly large prints! Although the new sensor takes aim at photographers needing 9.5K resolution, it maintains all of the 4K Cine modes, frame rates and codec options of the original Fp. The big news for cinematographers is the addition of phase-detect AF for the first time with an L-mount...

Sigma EVF-11 is a masterpiece of design

This image shows the upcoming Sigma Fp-L, with the new EVF-11 module attached which gives it a nice rangefinder-style form factor. Cleverly, the EVF attaches directly to the HDMI port with no cabling. It’s able to communicate via USB C and is powered by the camera. Since the Sigma Fp-L (and original) have quarter inch threads on both sides of the...

Firmware update turns Panasonic S1 into an S1H (with record-time limit in demanding modes like 6K)

Panasonic S1 owners continue to get a generous deal. Panasonic has today announced firmware update 2.0 for the camera. In a nutshell, the S1 gets a lot of the S1H high-end recording options. 5.9K and C4K in 10bit. 4K/60p in 10bit. Anamorphic 4:3 12bit RAW at anything up to 5.9K via HDMI. Panasonic did not stop there. The S1H now has BRAW output (to...

4K for $200 – Is it possible?

4K from a large sensor first arrived for $15,000 with the Canon 1D C. Later, Panasonic democratised it with the GH4. These images are as cinematic as ever today, but can we really go full on socialist 4K? 4K for $400? No – too expensive! How about $200? I went on an eBay hunt to find out. I set myself a few rules. This has to be a camera with a large(ish)...

Nikon Z9 thoughts and what to expect on the video side – a game of Follow My Leader (Sony A1)

Another day, another $6K camera! I am sure the Nikon Z9 is going to be a very nice one, but Nikon appears to be playing follow my leader, as a company that simply rehouses Sony’s cameras. Yes Nikon’s hands are in the parts bin again! Let’s see what they come up with this time. Pick a sensor (from Sony). Pick an image processor (from Sony). Put it together...

Nikon promise 8K mirrorless camera within a year, close in spec to Sony A1

Nikon are said to be working on a professional Z series full frame camera, based around a similar stacked CMOS sensor to the Sony A1. In fact in recent interviews Nikon have said as much: “A flagship Nikon Z-series mirrorless camera can be expected within the year, and is being developed with the goal of surpassing the D6. It will respond to the advanced...

Canon 1D X Mark III revisited

I decided to take another look at the Canon 1D X Mark III – giving it a second chance in the post EOS R5 and R6 world. The smoking hot Canon EOS R5 was all set to be a big step forward for Canon in video. Of course this didn’t quite go as planned – or maybe it did go as planned, I don’t know. Soon after that, the Cinema EOS C70 came out and it seems...
