Canon plays Catch up with Sony on the G7 X

There is no doubt about it, anyone that has looked at/held/owned a Sony RX100, has fell in love. A full frame sensor camera in a small portable body. In fact it is already on it's second iteration of the model. But while the new Canon 7D replacement stole all of the headlines, Canon released another camera into the mix that I believe may have caught up to, and even leap frogged the Sony RX100.

Introducing the Canon G7 X. It is also a compact body camera with a 1 inch sensor. In many ways, it seems to be better than the Sony. It offers a longer lens with it's 24-100mm equivalent F/1.8-2.8 lens.

It comes equipped with a flippable 3 inch touch sensitive screen. Something else Sony does not offer.

It has a 31 point AF system and shoots at 6.5 fps.

It sports 1080p 60FPS video recording, built in WiFi, and a pop up flash. It is also reportedly priced a bit better. But we shall see...

A Timelapse of a Timelapse

Now this is pretty cool. Photographer/Producer Maciej Tomkow makes compelling time lapse videos. But here is a behind the scenes timelapse of him making a timelapse...

Sony's Next Smartphone-Mounted Camera allow For Lens Changes

It is all rumor and conjecture at this point, but Sony is rumored to update their smartphone camera mounted system to include one that would allow for changing of lenses. The system pretty much attaches to any smartphone, and sends the images wirelessly to the phone. You would also see through the lens via video transfered to the smartphone as well. It would allow for E-mounted lens exchange, and offering up a variety of options. It would have a APS-C sized sensor and likely have a built in memory card.

This is a vacation shooters dream, if priced right.

Summer ( On Toast) by Alvaro Dominguez

Yep. We photographers will take pictures of just about anything and call it art. I have said it a million times. And here is yet just another fine example. Graphic designer Alvaro Dominguez collaborated with photographer Javier Almar to create a special "Summer Toast" series featuring bathing suites illustrated on toast. As silly as it sounds, I kinda like it.
