0

New Canadian drone piloting rules were announced by Federal Transport Minister Marc Garneau that will take effect on June 1st, 2019 and they include a number of changes to the older regulations we posted about in July 2017. New Canadian Drone Piloting Rules – Highlights The new rules apply to anyone who will be operating a drone weighing between 250 grams and 25 kilograms and is flown within a pilot’s visual-line-of-sight, regardless of application (fun, work or research).

DJI Osmo Pocket – 4K 3-Axis Camera Gimbal that Fits in Your Pocket

0

With what looks to be a focus towards a younger demographic, vloggers and YouTubers, DJI has just announced the latest (and smallest) member of their Osmo handheld camera family, the aptly named Osmo Pocket. Osmo Pocket Measuring a minuscule 4-inches tall, the Osmo Pocket is small enough to do what the name implies, comfortably fit in your pocket. But don’t let it’s diminutive stature fool you, the “Pocket” boasts a 1/2.3-inch sensor (the same as found in the Mavic Pro, Mavic Air and Mavic 2 Zoom drones) that is capable of capturing 12-megapixel photos and 4K videos at up to 60fps…

Leica Q-P – A Minimalist Update To The Classic Leica Q

0

The compact Leica Q-P is a premium variant of the Leica Q full-frame mirrorless camera that features a beautifully minimalist, all black design as well as redesigned/upgraded shutter release and on/off switches that Leica says will provide better tactile feedback when taking photos or switching drive modes. Like the Leica M10-P announced earlier this year, the Leica Q-P eschews the iconic front facing red dot logo in favour of a more discrete script logo placed on the top of the camera. Sample Images shot by Philipp Reinhard The front of the camera features a fixed Leica Summilux 28 mm f/1.7 ASPH…

Zeiss ZX1 – Zeiss Announces their first mirrorless full-frame camera

0

With today’s development announcement at Photokina of the ZX1, Zeiss has officially entered the (getting to be very crowded) full-frame mirrorless camera market segment. As mentioned, the full-frame mirrorless camera is becoming increasingly crowded all of a sudden. Sony is still the leader, but with Nikon and Canon joining the fray that will change, even more so now with Sigma and Panasonic recently announcing their intentions to release full-frame mirrorless bodies. So why should we be excited about Zeiss’s announcement of the ZX1? The Glass… The interplay between the lens and sensor ensures first-class picture quality with that typical ZEISS…

GoPro Hero7 – Has GoPro finally got its Mojo back?

0

Let’s face it, at one time, GoPro was the undisputed king of the action cam segment. Everywhere you looked, there were adrenaline junkies with a GoPro attached to just about anything they could stick them on. But then, as the marketplace became more crowded with cheaper alternatives with similar features, GoPro seemed to lose some of its “Mojo” and dare we say it, even start to stumble. However, with last year’s release of the Hero6, GoPro seemed to gain a little momentum back and now with the announcement of not one, but three versions of the Hero7, GoPro might be…

GFX 50R: Fujifilm’s new compact & lightweight medium format camera

0

The just announced Fujifilm GFX 50R is a rangefinder-style medium format, mirrorless digital camera that follows in the footsteps of the GFX 50S released back in 2016. The GFX 50R features the same 51.4MP G Format CMOS image sensor and X-Processor Pro image processing engine as its bigger brother, but somehow Fujifilm has been able to fit it into a body that is more similar in size to the newly announced X-T3 camera than the GFX 50S. By eliminating the deeper grip, top mounted LCD screen and hump on the back of the 50S, Fujifilm has been able to reduce the overall…

Panasonic announces S Series full-frame mirrorless cameras

0

In a month that could be called, “a full-frame mirrorless revolution”, Panasonic appears to be coming out swinging by announcing not one, but two new full-frame mirrorless cameras that are the lead cameras in their new Lumix S-Series. Please keep in mind that the full specs for either camera hasn’t been released as of yet, but here is what we know so far… Panasonic Lumix S1 & S1R The Panasonic S1R and S1 bodies are part of a new line-up of full-frame mirrorless cameras made possible through the new L-Mount alliance which includes manufacturers Panasonic, Leica and Sigma that was announced at…

Nikon Z Series – Z 7 and Z 6 Full-Frame Mirrorless Cameras

0

After months of rumours, the Nikon Z Series, consisting of two full-frame mirrorless cameras, the Z6 and Z7, a handful of lenses and a lens adapter that will allow you to continue using your existing Nikon glass has finally been announced. Nikon Z Series Cameras Appearance wise, you’d be hard pressed to tell the difference between the two camera bodies and as you can see below, apart from the Z 7 and Z 6 logos on the bottom front left of the cameras, there really isn’t a difference. On the outside, both cameras feature a nice deep hand grip and…

Leica M10-P – Taking Stealthy Photography to the Next Level

0

With it’s long and storied history, Leica is the camera brand that street photographers around the world have coveted the most due to their minimalist beauty and high-quality builds. And we are happy to say that the new Leica M10-P proudly continues that tradition. Leica M10-P As with most Leica cameras, the thing that makes M10-P appealing to street (and other) photographers is its discreet size and minimal design. Adding to the minimalist design is the fact that Leica made the decision to remove their classic red-dot logo from the camera, a move that might cause some division with hardcore…

0
