Rumor: Sony to Release a Full-Frame RX 1 with a Black & White Sensor in Late 2014

rx1

It seems Sony is intent on capturing that segment of the market that would like a Leica but can’t afford one. First, the company released the A7 and A7r, full-frame mirrorless cameras that were the first in the world with autofocus. And now, if rumors are to be believed, they’re working on a black-and-white only version of the fixed-lens Full Frame RX 1. Read more…

Shooting Larger Than Full-Frame Without Breaking the Bank or Carrying a Tank

When you’re looking to get the most bang for your buck, sometimes the best bet is to wander off the beaten path and take an alternate route. The ‘road less travelled’ if you will.

As demonstrated by DigitalRev in the video above, this can mean taking a step back in time if you’re wanting to shoot something larger than full-frame without, “breaking your bank or your arm.” Read more…

Rumor: Trusted Source Says Fuji’s X-Pro2 Will Use an APS-C Sensor, Not Full-Frame

xpro1_mini

One of Fuji Rumors‘ “trusted” Japanese sources is correcting previous speculation that Fuji is planning to go full-frame with the X-Pro2, which is great news for people who have invested in Fuji lenses, but bad news for anybody who has been holding out hope that the company would give larger sensors a try (well, there’s still the medium format rumors…).

DigitalRev Pits the Canon 1D X Against the Nikon D4s in Paparazzi Style Shootout

The Canon 1D X is a couple of years old by now, but that doesn’t mean it can’t hold its own with the big boys of today. And so DigitalRev decided to put the camera up against Nikon’s new D4s in a paparazzi-style shootout that you’ll either find funny or annoying, depending on how you feel about DigitalRev humor in general. (Note: There are a few curse words and some innuendos in the video. Might be better to save this one for after work.) Read more…

Yet Another Rumor Suggests that Fuji Will be Going Full-Frame Mirrorless Soon

fujixpro1_mini

Murmurings that Fujifilm will be one of the next companies to introduce a full-frame mirrorless camera aren’t new. The X200 is supposedly going to be full-frame and Fuji’s executives themselves confirmed that they “would like to challenge” the full-frame market when they spoke to DPReview at CP+.

Pilling on to all this talk is a new piece of info sent to Fuji Rumors that seems to indicate the X200 isn’t the only camera Fuji might be packing a full-frame sensor into. According to the tipster — who is a new source, so extra salt on this one — the X-Pro2 is also going to be a full-frame camera. Read more…

GPixel Announces Huge 150MP Full-Frame Sensor for Medical and Scientific Use

416950603884

The technology that makes its way into the cameras and imaging tools used for scientific and research applications tends to be vastly different than what we have in our more consumer-oriented cameras. Proving just how different is GPixel’s new GMAX3005 sensor — a 150MP full-frame monochrome behemoth. Read more…

D4s_ambience_2.high

We’ve had teasers, we’ve had spec leaks, we’ve had image leaks and we’ve had more (ultimately inaccurate) spec leaks. And now, finally, we have an official announcement: the Nikon D4s has arrived. Read more…

nikond4s_1

Alright, the rumor sites are giving this another shot. After getting the announcement date wrong the first time — it seems that February 11th event was not related to the D4s at all — Nikon Rumors is confidently reporting that the camera will get its official announcement on February 25th.

Hasselblad Launches the Hasselblad HV, a Tougher Sony A99

Hasselblad-HV_front_b

Hasselblad today announced the next camera in its line of Sony re-makes: The Hasselblad HV. Unlike the Lunar and the Stellar before it, this one has neither an astronomical name nor a particular focus on rare materials, although the differences between the HV and the full-frame Sony A99 it’s based on are still minimal with the exception of price.
