Samsung as it is customary has released the rugged version of their flagship Galaxy phone in this case the Galaxy S7 Active.  The Phone is IP68 water resistant which is not for scuba or snorkeling but will allow for it to be used in heavy rain, wash it and or for that accidental drop into the sink or puddle.

The Phone did not improve the video specs on the fabulous Galaxy S7 camera but has directly translated the performance; furthermore is might be the first Active phone that may be usable without a protective case of any kind do to it’s new Poly carbonate screen layer which makes it shatter resistance above and beyond what common Gorilla glass can withstand. → Continue Reading Full Post ←

EOS 5D Mark 4 Rumored to have 120fps 1080p!

EOS5DMark4Rumor

Canon is often accused of being too slow to react and update their line compared to the competition. However when you look back and see cameras like the 7D Mark 1 which introduced 60p 720p video to the EOS line it is much harder to judge them as other cameras topped at 30p.

The 5D Mark III has been a best selling camera for Canon but it is getting long in the tooth.  The lack of 4k video is a sore spot for the camera line that introduced cinematic looking footage to the masses. The upcoming 5D mark IV (4) rumors suggest that not only 4k is in the cards but 1080p 120fps as well. → Continue Reading Full Post ←

Sony RX10 III Ships and Reviews Start to Show!

RX10III

The Sony RX10 III has been the talk of the town as of late with an impressive lens 24-600mm 35mm equivalent  or 25x from wide to telephoto.  For us the value lies in the High frame rate or HFR mode that has the same specs as last year’s darlings the Sony RX100 IV and RX10 II.

At first glance the quality seems to be the same in terms of sensor response as all of these cameras share the exact same stacked 1″ sensor with blazing fast memory attached.  While the stills quality will not win any awards compared to 4/3, APS C or Full Frame cameras; it is still a big step up compared to small sensor P&S cams or smartphones. → Continue Reading Full Post ←
