Photography News: Father’s Day Specials and Nikon Z Rumors

On a local stream close to Prague in Czech Republic, a family of kingfishers is actively feeding their youthful. They carry the fish within their beaks headfirst so that the children don’t have too much trouble swallowing them. How many chicks may they raise this year continues to be a question. Well, that’s the local news. What about in the digital photography world?

The Rumor Mill

Nikon Z30 APS-C mirrorless camera

It seems that the particular spring wave of small-sensor APS-C cameras hasn’t washed out yet. There are rumors that after Canon and Fujifilm, Nikon might also release something totally new (though likely lower-end regarding now). According to some sources, the resolution of the sensor should rebound from the conventional 24MP to somewhere around 30MP.

Nikkor Z 400mm f/4. five mirrorless lens

Last week I relayed the rumor about the Nikkor Z 600mm f/4, and today there’s a new one about the possible launch of one more telephoto lens. There’s been a 400mm on the Z Roadmap for a while, and now it seems to be approaching its announcement. Wildlife and sports photographers should have something to be pumped up about.

At one time it looked like dark clouds were gathering over Olympus, however the brand is not only holding on, but launching one interesting item after another. After the OM-1, we may see another digital camera that should target photographers whom demand higher resolution. In a rumored 41MP resolution plus 20 fps continuous shooting speed, the new model would certainly end up being no slouch.

Sony ZV digital camera will not be a mini A2

Many Sony users may have been looking towards the flagship A1 getting a smaller brother in the form of the Sony ZV APS-C camera. But based on the latest Sony Alpha Gossips , that probably won’t happen and the upcoming model will appeal more in order to vloggers and less demanding users.

  • The particular iconic photograph of the “napalm girl” , fleeing in terror from the destruction of her village, was taken fifty years ago. Even after each one of these years, it has lost nothing of its power. The subject of the photo, Phan Thị Kim Phúc, did indeed set you back safety that day. Professional photographer Nick Ut, who captured her escape on his Leica M2 camera, won the Pulitzer Prize a year later on (1973). Interestingly, the photograph was originally taken upon colour film. But sometimes color will be distracting in a photograph, and that is the case here.
  • Leica has lost nothing of its status in the world of high-end, well-made, collectible cameras. The new edition Leica M-A in titanium (an all-manual film camera) with APO-Summicron-M 50mm F2 ASPH lens is currently offering for $19, 995. Compared to the model more than half a century aged, it adds no essential features. Perhaps because all of the essential features it basically already has. If you would certainly settle for the “regular” version, then it can be yours with regard to $5595. Via Dpreview
