Nikon D810A DSLR Preview

Nikon D810A DSLR Preview

The Nikon D810A DSLR is a D810 — a 36.3MP image sensor mated to the EXPEED 4 image processor and housed in a magnesium alloy body — optimized for astro-photography and scientific applications. To quote Nikon, “by modifying the infrared (IR) cut filter for the hydrogen alpha wavelength, Nikon has created a camera that gives photographers the ability to capture the diffuse nebulae in the night sky and to create colorful, breathtaking celestial images.” Basically, this version of the D810 is four times more sensitive to the 656nm wavelengths, which is more adept at capturing nebulae and constellations.In addition to the optimized IR cut filter, the D810A adds a new Long Exposure Manual Mode with shutters speeds from 4, 5, 8, 10, 15, 20, 30, 60, 120, 180, 240, 300, 600 or 900 seconds (15 minutes). There’s also Bulb and Time settings. ISO range too has been optimized from 200-12,800 (Hi-2 51,200) to reduce noise.Virtual Exposure Preview Mode can be engaged in Live View with exposures longer than 30 seconds, displaying an estimated preview of your final image. Electronic Front Curtain Shutter Mode minimizes vibrations, using the electronic shutter versus the mechanical, “to attain maximum sharpness.”While the Nikon D810A is perfect for capturing the heavens and and the stars and light that’s been traveling across space for millions or billions of years, it is not recommended for general photographyNikon D810A Features36.3MP CMOS image sensorEXPEED 4 image processor D810 features, plusElectronic Front Curtain Shutter ModeLong Exposure Manual ModeOptimized IR Cut FilterVirtual Exposure Read More…

Canon EOS 5DS Preview

Canon EOS 5DS Preview

Note: The EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R are basically the same camera. The only differences are the 5DS R has no low-pass filter, and costs about $200 more. Canon’s new EOS 5DS is an impressive new full frame DSLR, which boasts the world’s highest resolution full frame (35mm format) CMOS image sensor (as of 2/2015), with a whopping 50.6-megapixels. The 5DS, like all of their 5D-series EOS models, is aimed at photographers who want the benefits of a full frame sensor, originally only available to the EOS-1 line, in a more compact package. The 5DS still sports a rugged chassis with weather sealing, which they claim offers improved stability, thanks to a, “reinforced chassis, baseplate and tripod lug.”.To help process the light data from the 5DS’ 50-megapixel image sensor, Canon included dual DIGIC 6 processors. They help keep the camera’s performance robust while processing these huge image files, along with the camera’s Full HD video capabilities. Another improvement Canon made over past models is an updated mirror vibration control system, which helps reduce mirror bounce and camera shake. They’ve also added a new Arbitrary Release Time Lag Setting, which helps to minimize vibrations when using the Mirror Lock mode by offering several release interval settings (1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 1 and 2 seconds), over the typical method of pressing the shutter release once to lock the mirror, and once to release it. The 5DS’ AE system has been updated with a new anti-flicker system that, “automatically adjusts shutter release timing to help reduce disparities in exposure and color Read More…

Note: The EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R are basically the same camera. The only differences are the 5DS R has no low-pass filter, and costs about $200 more. Canon’s new EOS 5DS R is the near identical twin to the new 5DS, but with a few small differences. While it shares the same impressive new full frame sensor, with 50.6-megapixels (the world’s highest resolution full frame 35mm format CMOS image sensor, at release time), the 5DS R does not feature a low-pass filter. By canceling the low-pass filter, Canon claims the 5DS R is able to,”deliver sharp images, squeezing the most out of every pixel.”. Like all of Canon’s 5D-series EOS models, the 5DS R is aimed at photographers who want the benefits of a full frame sensor, originally only available to the EOS-1 line, in a more compact package.

Olympus Air Preview

Olympus Air Preview

Olympus has announced its latest and greatest Micro Four Thirds camera system. Only this new digicam doesn’t include a lens kit. In fact, it doesn’t even come with a body, a display, or even a shutter button.Whatchu talkin’ bout, Steve’s?The Olympus Air is an “open format” Micro Four Thirds camera system. Similar to Sony’s “lens-style” QX-series, the Air is little more than an image sensor, image processor, built-in battery, and a Micro Four Thirds lens mount. You supply a compatible lens and an iOS or Android smartphone, which operates the camera via a free app while mounting to an adapter on the back of the Air’s compact, circular body. Cool, right? Olympus has not formally announced plans to release the Air in the United States, so we don’t know anything about availability or pricing. For now, this will be a Japan-only release (sometime in mid March).In terms of features, the Air includesa 16MP Live MOS image sensorthe True Pic VII image processorWi-Fi & Bluetooth8 unique appsa High-speed start up optiona built-in battery with a USB rechargea tripod mountStay tuned for updates on the Air. Hopefully we’ll be getting word of a US release, and can bring you an in-depth review. [editor’s note: non-production model currently featured in our photographs.] Read More…
