Canon Working on Lens Driving Adapter

Canon-zoom-adapter

Canon latest patent shows that they are working on a Lens Driving Adapter possibly for EF and EF-S Lenses. It will going to attach on the side of the lens to do the zoom operation by rotating the lens barrel.

Before we begin let me tell you that the Canon PZ-E1 zoom adapter was announced sometime in Feb 18 2016 and that works only with Canon 18-135mm IS USM (Nano) Lens.  But this patent was filed on June of 2016 and it was first published on Jan 5, 2017. Hence Canon may be working on improved and versatile version of its current PZ-E1 zoom adapter .

Patent Details (Translated)
The lens driving adapter is detachably attachable to a lens barrel on which an operation member is provided. The adapter includes a driver configured to drive the operation member, and an adapter body holding the driver. The adapter body includes a first contact portion and a second contact portion that are protrusions contactable with two circumferential portions in an outer circumferential surface of the lens barrel. The first and the second contact portions are contactable with outer circumferential surfaces of lens barrels whose outer diameters are mutually different. The adapter body includes a fixing member configured to fix the adapter body to any of the lens barrels.

Canon 80D Camera Deals

Canon 80D camera Deals

Canon 80d is one of the best Canon camera we have ever seen. The Canon 80d 24.2 megapixel sensor is undoubtedly one of the best performing APS-C sensor that Canon can an ever made.
yes we are saying the right words here, the Canon 80d performance is even better than Canon 7D mark 2 camera in low light conditions.

Despite of having a excellent sensor the Canon 80d also features 45. AF module. That works when you are using viewfinder and the DUal-Pixel AF system gets activated when you are using when you are using Live view display of the camera for shooting a video from and DSLR and believe me DPAF does a blazing fast AF performance without issue.

we have recommended some of the best lenses available for Canon 80d camera here.

Canon 90d is Coming sooner than expected ?

Canon-90D-coming-soon

We have seen some aggressive announcements from Canon in past few weeks. And if you look at the specification of the recently announced Canon 77D camera, (see comparisons of both camera here), then you will going to find that Canon 77D features advanced Core specification when compared to the Canon 80d camera.

Why we are saying that the Canon 77D  features advanced Core specification?, because the image processor inside the canon 77D is better than the Canon 80d. New image processor will bring new image decoding algorithm and hence you will see better image quality from it.

Just like Canon 77D the Core specification of the 800d also resembles with the Canon 80d camera.

Hence, after the announcement of these two clones the sales of Canon 80d will going to slow down tremendously. Only those who require a weather sealed camera Now going to purchase the 80D. Now what next will Canon do,  the simple answer is to announce the successor of Canon 80d camera as soon as possible.

we have 3 camera by having exactly same Core specification.  and hence we expect Canon will going to announce Canon 90d or maybe Canon 80d mark in near future.

Canon 90D

Name of the camera isn’t know yet, it may be called Canon 90D or may be Canon 80D Mark II. But we are sure that Canon 80D successor will have core specification somehow similar to Canon 7D Mark II camera. Yes, we do expect the 65 point AF system of 7D Mk  II can be seen in Canon 90D.

Resolution Rollback isn’t expected

If Canon continues to show same aggressiveness, then we will going to witness Canon 7D mark 2 camera AF system under 80d body at end of this year (2017) or beginning of 2018.

But at the same time we are sure that Canon won’t going to roll back the resolution of Canon 80d to 20.2 megapixel of 7D Mark II.  so, we are going to see a completely new sensor with 65 point AF system inside Canon 90D.

Nikon Working on High-end Mirrorless and Medium Format Cameras

Nikon Mirrorless

During an interview to Yahoo Japan Nikon executives said that they will bring multiple mirrorless camera at an early stage. The things to be noted that after extraordinary loss news, this is the first good news we are getting itself from Nikon, more details below…

1. “Bringing in multiple mirroless camera at an early stage”

The line was quoted during the interview, after suffering from heavy loss Nikon is finally realizing it’s mistakes. Nikon is still not making any serious mirrorless solutions for professionals, seasonal  or entry level Photographers. However we are the only website who told you Nikon is planning to expand it’s Nikon 1 series Mirrorless camera and soon we will see FF and APS-C Mirrorless from Nikon.

2. Medium and High-End DSLRs

Nikon executives also told during the interview that future Nikon will concentrate on their resources on medium and high-end in DSLR cameras and lenses and mirrorless camera.

Nikon Announce a camera, High-End DPAF Sensor based mirrorless camera in near future. As you can look at the patent we have published here and it clrealy indicates that Nikon is also working on same Dual-pixels CMOS AF tech as of Canon.

What will happen to the current schedule announcement of cameras?

The other things to be noted is Nikon camera business has been re-constructing from inside to out, that clearly indicates that the future of announcement and development is going to be rescheduled. That may create some level of disappointment among Nikon users due to the delay in the regular update cycle of DSLRs.

As we all know that Nikon  D750,  Nikon D610 and Nikon D810 camera overdue for an update. So, be it will be interesting to see how you can handle the entire situation.

Nikon Patent - BSI CMOS Sensor with Dual Pixel AF

Fig-1-Nikon-patnet

Before we begin I must admit it it’s very hard to understand a patent literature,  but after analyzing the entire document we concluded that Nikon working on a BSI CMOS AF Sensor. The sensor won’t have dead Phase AF pixels as the other Hybrid sensor have, instead of that it working principle looks same as Canon’s Dual-pixel CMOS AF sensor.

Nikon Dual Pixel AF Sensor ?

Till now only Canon was only company who was using dual pixel CMOS AF Technology. But when we have seen the new Nikon latest patent where two sub pixels involved in acquiring AF, that clearly indicates Canon isn’t alone and Nikon will soon bring a new class of Hybrid Sensors for it’s DSLRs and Mirrorless cameras in near future.

Patent Details:

BACKSIDE ILLUMINATION IMAGE
SENSOR AND IMAGE-CAPTURING DEVICE
Applicant: NIKON CORPORATION, Tokyo (JP)
Appl. No.: 15/260,994
Filed Date: Sep. 9, 2016
Pub. Date: Dec. 29, 2016

Nikon-new-sensor-tech

But now after looking at the patent we have got its look like Nikon is also interested in working on the same dual pixel CMOS sensor Technology.

Details from the patent document

A backside illumination image sensor that includes a semiconductor substrate with a plurality of photoelectric conversion elements and a read circuit formed on a front surface side of the semiconductor substrate, and captures an image by outputting, via the read circuit, electrical signals generated as incident light having reached a back surface side of the semiconductor substrate is received at the photoelectric conversion elements includes: a light shielding film formed on a side where incident light enters the photoelectric conversion elements, with an opening formed therein in correspondence to each photoelectric conversion element; and an on-chip lens formed at a position set apart from the light shielding film by a predetermined distance in correspondence to each photoelectric conversion element. The light shielding film and an exit pupil plane of the image forming optical system achieve a conjugate relation to each other with regard to the on-chip lens.

Details from the patent document clearly indicates that Nikon is working on a BSI CMOS sensor that will have two sub pixels that will do AF by calculating the amount of lens drive Between the two autofocus point.

The image above of the patent you will get a clear indication that Nikon will do the same as Canon has done in many of its full frame and aps-c DPAF sensor camera. we are the first website to show you the details of the patent till now it is also possible that even Canon doesn’t know about this technology that Nikon working on.
