(SR3) Tamron rumored to launch a new 70-200mm f/2.8 FE lens in Q1

Share

Tamron 28-75mm FE lens at BHphotoAmazon, BuyDig, FocusCamera, Adorama, Amazon DE and WexUK.

We now got this:

Tamron is in the process of making a 70-200mm or similar(maybe deviate slight like their 28-75mm….but definitely a tele zoom) it will have an aperture of f2.8. Expecting it early Q1 2019.

This one sounds very exciting and I bet it will cost much less than the Sony 70-200mm GM!

Entire Hollywood movie shot with the Sony A7sII

Share

The camera systems used to shoot feature films are typically extremely expensive and not something that the average consumer would own. That is, until now. Screen Gems’ “The Possession Of Hannah Grace” which hit theaters just after Thanksgiving, was shot with a camera that’s available to the consumer, the Sony α7S II. See more at AlphaUniverse.com

(SR5) UPDATED: you cannot use the full potential of Sony’s new 60, 54 and 36MP FF 8K sensors without the proprietary SLVS-EC interface

Share

The past week I shared the specs of three new Sony 8K sensors. All these will be available for third-party companies too. But there is one very important aspect we learned now from our sources:

UPDATED: The full sensor power can only be used if the companies buy the proprietary Sony SLVS-EC interface too. Without it you CANNOT have the full sensor potential. Sources told me that it is highly unlikely that companies like Nikon and Panasonic will suddenly start to use Sony SLVS-EC interface. A source told me this:

To use the full potential of a Sony sensor, the proprietary SLVS-EC interface must be used. SLVS-EC interface offers much bigger throughput and bandwidth than traditional sub-LVDS interface. Usually SLVS-EC allows 16bit ADC and much higher framerate at a given readout resolution. SLVS-EC interface costs significantly more than sub-LVDS.

This new info makes it more likely that these sensors will indeed be used by future Sony cameras like the A7sIII or A9II or A9r. And Nikon/Panasonic will probably use the same sensors but with some crippled features.
