Speed, 2.portability and 3. Quality and that will remain the primary features of the upcoming larger sensor based mirrorless system.

So the good thing is Nikon 1 is alive and it will compete against the latest Sony A7 series camera.

Fuji X-T20 Rumor

fuji-x-t20-image

Fuji X-T10 was announced on May 18, 2015. The Fuji X-T10 was the trim-out version of X-T1 by having the same sensor and no extensive weathersealing of the XT1, the XT-1. The X-A1 production is now completely stopped and the world is waiting for X-T20 announcement.

The Fuji X-T20 announcement is expect sometime in 2017. Take a look at the announcement schedule XT series camera below:

Model Name Date of Announcement
Fuji X-T1 January 28, 2014
Fuji X-T10 May 18, 2015
Fuji X-T2 July 7, 2016
Fuji X-T20 2017

We have seen Fuji took 1+ year to release X-T1 camera. And I think Fuji will maintain the same time frame between these two models, early announcement of X-T20 will affect the sales number of X-T1 as well as X-Pro 2 since both camera shares same sensor.

Sigma - Compatibility Issue with Canon 5D Mark IV

canon-5d-mark-iv-image

There is no major issue, as we all know Canon all DSLR camera comes with built-in lens correction tool that corrects Peripheral illumination, Chromatic aberration and Diffraction once the shot is captured. Every Canon EOS camera have lens database inside and apply lens correction algorithm only when native Canon lenses mounted on it.  Lens correction tool doesn’t work with third party lenses and the second thing don’t try to adjust focus ring while lens is on AF mode, Manual Override not available with Sigma lenses.

From Sigma

Thank you for purchasing and using our products.

Please find the following notes on the usage of SIGMA interchangeable lenses for EOS, when attached to Canon EOS 5D Mark IV that is released on September 8th.

  • MO (Manual Override) function is unavailable with this camera (Full-time Manual function can be offered).
  • When using a SIGMA interchangeable lens for EOS, setting the corrections to [Disable] is recommended, as “Lens Correction” functions of the camera, such as Peripheral illumination correction, Chromatic aberration correction, Diffraction correction and Distortion correction are not supported.*

* If those functions are activated, the performance of lenses may not be accurate.
* This is not only for EOS 5D Mark IV, but also for other camera bodies with the same function.

We appreciate your continued support for our company and products.

Should Canon and Nikon Announce Medium Format Mirrorless Camera?

Photokina is over and the biggest announcement of the show according to me is Fuji GFX50S (announcement page here). To compete against Fuji GF50S and to save DSLRs & Lenses sale they both should announce a Medium Format as well as Fullframe sensor based Mirrorless system cameras.

Losing battle ground silently

sony-a7-series-camera

If you don’t have a product then people will get it from a different manufacturers. If you want to get a fullframe mirrorless camera you have only one option – select a camera from Sony A7 series.  And If we want to get a Compact Medium format mirrorless camera then we have Hasselblad X1D or Fuji GFX 50S as option in our front.

us-interchaneable-camera

The the graph you see above clearly shows us how Sony emerged as the leader of Mirrorless camera industry. The stats taken from market research firm NPD. According to the research team Sony has emerged as the un-disputed #1 mirrorless camera maker for the last four years running.

Fact of the matter is Digital Camera do attracting more investors and young age photographers. Due to less availability of quality Mirrorless and Affordable options in CanNikon FF group user moving towards Sony and other third party manufactures.

Ignorance is bliss – Until you hit the ground

Nikon does have (only 1) Medium Format Lens Patents (See hereArticle published at Sep 2013). And surprisingly Canon isn’t interested in Medium Format. Again, Just like fullframe mirrorless market ruled by Sony. It’s look like in upcoming years either Fuji, Hasselblad or Sony will take over the Medium format Mirrorless Market.
