High Megapixel rumor war update (Canon coming soon?)



Sony’s close to 50 megapixel camera is likely to come in very early 2015. But before that Canon could launch their 50 Megapixel camera this week already! At least their teaser promises a lot. I am yet not into Canon rumors so I don’t know if the camera is really coming in these days already. Knowing Canon they could also make a big advertsising…for nothing really exciting. Anyway, if this is the High Megapixel camera I will be certainly happy. It will force Sony to price their new cameras in a competitive way.

New FS7 test (And Sony freezes bubbles in 4K)


This is a first video sample shot on that fantastic new 4K E-mount FS7. XDcam-User writes:

Where this camera will be really good is when combined with the new 28-135mm f4 servo zoom lens. Typically par-focal lenses with this kind aperture and zoom ratio cost in excess of $30K. The FS7 combined with this lens will be a killer combination and that’s why I have ordered one.

And to promote 4K Sony Germany had the strange idea to show how bubble freeze :) The effect is quite cool although I don’t see what’s the 4K advantage here. But that doesn’t matter i guess…it’s all about going viral here:
