Should Photographers Care About 4K?

If you had to summarize this year’s NAB Show in Las Vegas in one word, it would probably be “4K.”

The NAB (Which stands for National Association of Broadcasters) Show is the world’s largest Electronic Media show, and deals largely in video. But, this year, at least one of the announcements had interesting implications for the still photography market. Read more…

The Sony A7s Gets Taken for a Spin at ISO 409,600

409600ISOA7s

Sony announced the full-frame mirrorless A7s earlier this week. And while its 4K video capability was arguably the most touted feature, we were more intrigued by the 12-megapixel sensor that tops out at a ridiculous ISO of 409,600 … almost half a million ISO … in a mirrorless camera.

So, how does footage (and therefore images) look at 409,600 on the A7s? Well, Sony commissioned Den Lennie to show it off. Read more…

From some talks with a Leica rep at the 2014 NAB show, it looks like Digipixelpop has found out that the next Leica S will be announced at Photokina in September. Packing a 40-50MP medium format CMOS sensor and 4K video, it’s an interesting addition to Leica’s current line-up, but one we probably should’ve seen coming considering PhaseOne, Pentax and Hasselblad have all already hopped on the CMOS medium format train.

Normally, when a camera announcement is about to drop, we wait for the official word and then summarize the good parts for you in a post. But since it’s Sunday evening and rumor has it this is a fairly video-specific announcement, we thought we’d do something a bit different.

In 30 minutes, Sony’s NAB presentation is set to go live, and instead of watching that ourselves and then telling you about the Sony A7s that will supposedly be announced, we thought we’d just let you watch it for yourself. And if you’re checking this late, don’t worry: the embed will have a link to the replay so you can watch the presentation, too. Read more…
