We've already looked at the role played by pixel size and the benefits of a larger sensor. But, before you rush out to buy the camera with the biggest sensor you can, it's worth bearing in mind that you won't always see its full advantage.Key takeaways:For the same field-of-view, a larger format will have shallower depth-of-field at the same F-number.Shallow depth-of-field can be a creative benef
Hot on the heels of sensor reviews for the Nikon Z6, Nikon Z7 and Canon EOS R cameras, DxOMark has a review of one of Panasonic's first full-frame mirrorless cameras, the 24-megapixel Panasonic S1. To briefly recap, the Panasonic S1 (and 47-megapixel S1R) are the first two cameras in Panasonic's new full-frame mirrorless camera system, which incorporates the existing Leica L-mount. The S1
Shortly after Nikon announced their Z6 and Z7 full-frame mirrorless cameras, Canon announced their new EOS R full-frame mirrorless camera. The EOS R features a 30.3-megapixel CMOS image sensor and a new RF mount. Last week, we featured DxOMark's reviews of the sensors in Nikon's Z6 and Z7 cameras. DxOMark has just published their review of the Canon EOS R image sensor. Looking first at
Mobile cameras are getting more powerful all the time but the technical advancements are not only down to sensor manufacturers and camera module designers. Mobile chipsets also have to support the new imaging components and be able to process the ever increasing amounts of captured image data.As spotted in the XDA Developers forum, chipset maker Qualcomm has now updated the specs for a range of i
Leica has announced the successor to its Leica Q (Typ 116) camera, aptly named the Leica Q2. The Leica Q2 shares many external similarities to its predecessor, but inside, much has changed. The Q2 has a newly developed 47.3-megapixel full-frame CMOS image sensor (up from 24 megapixels in the Q) which is paired with the same Summilux 28mm f/1.7 ASPH lens as is found in the original Q. Leica stat
Five months after its development announcement, the Ricoh GR III will be shipping this March for $899. Unlike the GR II, which was a very minor upgrade to the original, the major components on the GR III are all-new.The controls have received a major shake-up as the GR III becomes the first in the series to use a touchscreen. The screen is a 3.0", 1.04M-dot LCD, with all of the usual features lik
Reuters reports that Sony is planning to deploy 40 percent of its new engineer hires in Japan at its chip business which also includes the manufacturing of image sensors. The company is hoping to grow the division with more demand coming from a range of sectors, including mobile and automotive.Overall Sony is projecting to hire 320 new engineers in Japan in 2019 and the same number again the next
Seeing spots in your photos? Your camera’s sensor might need a cleaning. If you’d like to go a do-it-yourself route and beyond a simple bulb blower, Michael The Maven made this 13-minute video walkthrough on how you can go about cleaning a mirrorless camera sensor.Michael’s strategy is probably more involved than what most photographers do — he uses a special $18 loupe to
Nothing beats seeing your photography come to life in the form of a large print. For photographers such as Nigel Danson, it is an important part of the photographic process; it's the tangible result of a lot of hard work. When discussing megapixels of cameras, the topic of print size often comes up. "How big can you print from camera X?" In his own version of this test, Danson headed out in
The International Leica Society has posted a video of a camera sensor being cleaned at the Leica service centre in the Wetzlar factory in Germany.The video, taken by member Hari Subramanyam on his iPhone, shows the process of checking for dust on the sensor of his M (Typ 240) and then its removal. Well, that was what it was supposed to show, but after 20 minutes and 25 seconds the video finishes is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
