Deocamdata pe hartie Nikon D600 merita mai mult pretul cerut de companie iar Canon EOS 6D-ul poate ar fi fost mai dragut cu o rafala mai puternica, mai multe puncte AF si un slot de CF in loc de SD… La 2099$ cred ca mai bine iti cumperi un 5D MK2 dar Digic V este un procesor foto mult mai performant decat Digiv IV-ul din 5Dmk2, deci probabil rezultate mai bune la ISO ridicat.

Pana la urma ma gandesc ca Wifi+GPS putea fi optional pe 6D, puteau sa puna un LCD mai slab (cum are D600) si puteau sa-l scoata sub 2000$, la un 1800$ era “BEST BUY”.

Asteptam sa vedem review-uri complete, pana atunci o comparatie matematica aici. 🙂

Se poate da precomanda pe B&H la 3500usd. In Romania o sa ajunga mult mai scump 😀

Nu m-ar mira sa fie sute de precomenzi si de la romani si de cand apare la F64 sa le goleasca alora stocul instant. Avem fotografi care cer peste 1000E pe nunta si vor avea fonduri sa nu se faca de ras cand vorbesc cu colegii de breasla. E o uzina, e foarte nice, sper sa am ocazia sa ma joc cu el.

PS. Ca sa băliți puternic (nu stiu daca e frumos sa zici “băliți” pe internet) uite un hands on preview de la dpreview

Stiu, nu am mai scris nimic aici de cand aveam unghiile moi. Stiu, am lasat photowalk.ro in paragima, dar uite ce efect benefic are lansarea navetei in spatiul pozografic entuziast al profesionistilor care au de unde sa cheltuie (estimat pentru retail) 6800USD. In aceeasi data cand anunta 50 de milioane de body-uri EOS fabricate + 70 de milioane de obiective EF mai anunta si EOS 1D X-ul. Imi place foarte mult ce va iesi in primavara pe piata foto, Canon EOS 1D X este o nava spatiala, are niste specificatii super!

Pe scurt (pentru ca s-a scris in multe locuri si as posta informatie redundanta):

– 18 megapixeli
– 3 procesoare Digic (2x Digic 5 si 1 Digic 4)
– sistem nou de autofocus (61 puncte) + sistem nou de metering
– ISO 50 pana la ISO 204800 – au laudat in mod special senzorul
– 12 cadre pe secunda + un mod “superspeeedturbomode” la 14 cadre pe secunda
– conector rj45 pentru retea, capabil GIGABIT 😀
– un nou controller wireless 802.11n
– Filmare HD, codec nou – compresie mai buna
– … si altele

Sunt curios ce vor lansa pe celelalte segmente (zona 7D / 5D mk2)

Canon EOS 7D Firmware 1.2.5 – Canon EOS 7D Product Page (aici)

Canon has released a firmware update for the Canon EOS 7D digital SLR camera. Version 1.2.5 improves read and write speeds when using UDMA 7-compatible CF cards, and addresses various issues with custom function C.Fn 4-1, movie and still capture using certain CF cards, and menu screens displayed in Arabic and Portuguese.

Nikon D7000 Firmware 1.02 – Nikon D7000 Firmware (aici)

Nikon has issued a firmware update for the Nikon D7000 DSLR camera. Version 1.02 resolves a number of issues and changes the way long-exposure noise reduction is performed. Specifically, dark frame subtraction is now applied to all photos taken using shutter speeds slower than 1s. Previously, long-exposure NR was applied to photos captured with exposure times longer than 8s only.

Olympus XZ-1 Firmware 1.2 – Update prin Digital Camera Updater

Version 1.2 adds a new menu item, “Picture Orientation”. Given that the camera’s orientation sensor might not always be able to correctly recognise if an image was taken in portrait or landscape orientation, users will now have the ability to specify the orientation of any given image in Playback mode simply by a turn of the click-stop dial. The user-defined picture orientation is then saved in the EXIF.

Twenty-four years after the first Electro Focus (EF) lens launched, Canon announced that it had reached a milestone by producing the 60 millionth lens in the series. This landmark was achieved on 11th January 2011 during the production of an EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM (pictured), thirteen months after the production of the company’s 50 millionth EF lens.

A trecut un an si un pic de la ultimul milestone anuntat de ei, atunci cand au anuntat ca au produs doar 50 de milioane de obiective ef…

… doar imi doresc sa le scada pretul :))

Au facut-o si pe asta, dar nu avem noi obiective/body-uri asa de mari :).

August 31, 2010 – Canon Inc. announced today that it has successfully developed the world’s largest*1 CMOS image sensor, with a chip size measuring 202 x 205 mm. The sensor is capable of capturing images in one one-hundredth the amount of light required by a professional-model digital SLR camera due to its expanded size enabling greater light-gathering capabilities. Potential applications for the new high-sensitivity CMOS sensor include the video recording of stars in the night sky and nocturnal animal behavior.

At 202 x 205 mm, the newly developed CMOS sensor is among the largest chips that can be produced from a 12-inch (300 mm) wafer, and is approximately 40 times the size of Canon’s largest commercial CMOS sensor.

Comunicatul de presa aici.

Carl Zeiss a anuntat Distagon T* 1,4/35, un obiectiv la un pret recomandat de 1390E fara TVA. Va sosi pe piata la inceputul lui 2011.

In comunicatul de presa cu acest obiectiv spun ca Distagon T* 1,4/35 va completa prime-urile de 1.4 – Planar T*1,4/50 si T*1,4/85. Ne promit un obiectiv sharp cu niste calitati optice exceptionale la care subliniaza “special bokeh effects” si “bright light sources without artifacts”.

Pretul la care il vom putea cumpara ar fi de 3 ori mai mare decat cel pentru Sigma EX 30mm/f1.4 (de exemplu), dar nu cred ca performantele obiectivului vor fi de 3 ori mai mari, punand in balanta si lipsa autofocus-ului. Au promis monturi Canon si Nikon pana acum…
