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…

Nikon Finally Pulls Back the Curtain on the D4s: A Less Noisy, Faster Version of the D4

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…

Rumor: The Nikon D4s Will be Announced on February 25th

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.

LensRentals Cracks Open the Sony A7R, Gives Us a Peek at the Electronic Goods

The usual warnings apply:

  • Do not try this at home. This post was made by semi-trained, semi-professional repair technicians who sort of know what they’re doing.
  • The following blog post contains graphic images of the inside of a very nice camera. If such things make you squeamish, don’t read further.
  • No cameras were harmed in the making of this blog post. The camera has been fully reassembled and is functioning normally.

Ever since we here at LensRentals first tested a Sony A7R, we were dying to take a look under the hood. Say what you will about Sony as a company, but they create some of the most elegantly-engineered camera bodies we’ve seen. Plus, the A7R is something of a groundbreaking camera, and we wanted to see how they crammed all that stuff into its little body.

Oh, and finally, we’ve wanted a closer look at how thick the cover glass over the A7R’s sensor is, since there is some evidence that it may affect the edge performance of certain adapted lenses. Read more…

Photos of the Nikon D4S That’s on Display at CES

nikond4s_1

One of the most simultaneously exciting and vague photography announcements to come out of CES this year was the official confirmation that Nikon’s new flagship D4S is on the way. And even though very few details were revealed — find out about those here — attendees were given the opportunity to stare longingly at a D4S that the Nikon folks had brought with them to their booth.

As you already know, we weren’t there to ogle ourselves, but Chris Gampat over at The Phoblographer was kind enough to let us share the photos he took of the D4S. Read more…

Rumor: Nikon to Announce a 35mm f/1.8G Full-Frame Lens at CES

nikon35f1.8

Nikon already makes a 35mm f/1.8G DX lens but the equivalent isn’t available for its full-frame cameras, at least not yet. At this point, if you want a 35mm FX lens for your Nikon, you’re stuck spending $1,600+ on the f/1.4, but that might all change in a couple of weeks at CES. Read more…

Sony a7R: A Rising Tide Lifts All the Boats?

a7r_2

I have to admit I didn’t get too worked up when the Sony A7 and A7R were released. The last time I wrote about Sony it was how there were so few lenses for the NEX system years after introduction. So now we’re going to a system requiring a whole new lens mount. Sure the camera’s specs were interesting. But the idea of yet another camera body good mostly for shooting lenses on adapters wasn’t very exciting. So I planned to ignore it.

But my friends over at Imaging-Resource/SLRGear were waxing poetic when they talked about their testing of the A7. Then they started claiming that the lenses were really good, too, and sent me some rather shocking test results. Plus, I will admit when it arrived I kind of liked the look and feel of the camera. It’s a very small camera for a full-frame, but with a nice deep grip that felt good in my overly large hands. Sort of a retro appearance. So even though we were a bit backed up, Aaron and I decided to at least run some preliminary testing in our Imatest lab with the A7R. Read more…
