Sony Ignoring RX1 Series Compact Line

Sony-RX1-imageThe big question is why Sony isn’t’ putting any attention towards the development of its fullframe compact camera line-up – “the RX series”. The first RX series camera was announced on Sep 12, 2012 and after less than year of gap Sony announced it’s new RX1R camera on June 2013 having same core specification as of Sony RX1 camera. The only major difference between the both was the absence of low-pass filter inside Sony RX1R camera.

It’s almost 2 years, 2 months, and 17 days passed after the announcement of RX1R series camera and no update arrived till now. The worst part of the game is Sony even didn’t announced any single firmware update of Sony RX1 or RX1R.

Sony RX1 camera user Benjamin Gutheil from Germany added a petition for a Sony RX1 / RX1R firmware update  on change.org.

Nikon D760 - Our Expectations with Nikon D750 Successor

Nikon D750 is about to finish its first birthday since it was announced in September 2014. However it’s a matter of a complete praise that the camera succeeded to get through its cut off and finally secured its own place among the best DSLRs’ in the huge competitive market. But after completing almost one year we’re unable to cross through any kind of news or even rumors related to the successor of this popular Nikon D750. So, we think it could be a good to write something as per our thoughts about what we could expect of Nikon 760D (assumed name) or may be turned into D750 successor.
Nikon-D750-side-image

Users want some latest and updated version of Nikon D750. Well, we’re unable to understand the policy of Nikon Whether they are looking forward to do some quick work for Nikon 760D or not. Just see our expectations for 760D. Hope the stuffs could feature according to our expectation.

What about resolution? We do expect that the resolution of the successor of respected Nikon D750 will remain same as it employs 24.3MP FX-Format CMOS Sensor because As far as I am concerned Nikon users are satisfied with this 24.3MP of resolution and the camera and good thing is D750 current sensor is well enough to deliver the sharp images and the quality that we’d like to see.

Our calculation is saying that we would be lucky enough to see something new about the image processor. Though, we don’t feel any bravado in giving a fake name to the image processor but we have right to expect a fast Image Processor inside the body of Nikon D760, then we guess D760 will use either use Dual Expeed 4 or Single Expeed 5 so it will be an interesting thing to notice the major boost in the camera core specs .

 ISO- May be many of photographers didn’t realize the expandable ISO of 51200 in Nikon D750 more supportive so Nikon perhaps take it as a serious issue and increase expandable ISO upto 102400 so that the users of this Nikon D760 can be confident in the challenging situation of lowlight shooting. We hope Nikon do this.

Another and may be the final big thing we would think ourselves be favored by Nikon if they update Continuous shooting speed from 6.5fps to 8fps-10fps to freeze the action of the desired subjects instantly.

These were the few things we expect the design of Nikon D760 would come up with. Do share your thoughts with us.

Featured Comments

High ISO is not a priority at all! the current D750 is really good in low light situations! Who really wants to shoot at 102400!!! 6400 is the maximum I would use but normally restrict myself to 3200 when shooting concerts for example.
But on the other end of the ISO scale, I think native 50ISO would be a plus

Yes, as “none” said, 1/8000sec shutter speed would be much more useful in daylight shooting!

A bigger area for the AF points would be a plus!

More frames per second? Not sure people buy this camera for action or sport! If you’re a professional you’ll certainly buy another camera por sport like the D4. Not the same budget of course…

People like me, have bought that camera mainly for its video capabilities, so what we expect from the update of the D750 is to shoot in 4K/UHD (but not only in 24p as Canon D1-C, but also up to 50/60p + 120p in FHD. This will be the real piece of news! But Nikon will put this feature on its about to be announced D5 first!!! So, a bet we will have to wait a bit before this feature goes down the line up!

A practical improvement in the audio department, would be to invert the order of the mic input connector and headphone output connector! Apparently nobody complains about what seems to me to be totally anti ergonomic as mic is generally placed on the top of your DSLR. The actual configuration of these two connectors obliges you to cross your headphone and mic cables! Not natural at all!!!

Still talking of the video possibilities, it would be great to set the speed of the motorised diafragm. It’s way too low for a nice effect!!! An option in the fast access menu to set it like slow, middle and fast would be just great!!!!

Something that would also be practical when shooting a concert or at night, is the possibility to retro illuminate buttons like, if I’m not mistaken, on the D4, Just as you can illuminate the upper display!!!

Quite to finish with, I really would appreciate to have a configurable AF ON button on the right of the AE/AF lock button like on the D8XX cameras

Last but not least, for videographor a wonderfull thing would be a remote triggering like the MC-DC2 but with more options (lots of configurable buttons-at least 4)so that you don’t have to touch the body when shooting videos

All the three lenses have common features and there is no difference in their specification and performs according to its compatibility. Each lens in the XEEN series has common focus and iris gear ring at perfect positions which is sufficient to fasten the settings of the lens changes. Its internal focus is designed in such a manner that during focusing, the size of the lens remains unchanged.

As each lens is multi-coated, this favors better contrast, glare prevention, and magnificent color combination during capturing subjects.

It is useful for both full-frame cameras as well as camera with small formats. However these lenses are made for full-frame sensor camera so you will notice the crop-factor issue while using them with APS-C or 4/3 format sensor.

 

Rokinon-lenses

The lens features metal construction to withstand the rigors of daily production, and it incorporates a support that can help take strain off your camera’s lens port. The focus ring rotates 200° from close focus to infinity; which results with a high degree of precision and consistent focus.

The entire three lenses features “Clickless” aperture ring for smooth iris pulls.

The one thing which is different for all the three lenses is the minimum focusing distance due to its different opticl elements and focal length of the images.. A minimum focusing distance of 24mm T1.5 lens, 50mm and 85mm lenses are 10”, 18” and 3’9” respectively , which allows the users to get up close to their subject so that they can capture the best imagery of the subject .
