NEW CAMERA: THE “ALICE” CAMERA INTRODUCED!

2022 BRINGS IN THE NEW “ALICE CAMERA”

ALICE CAMERA COMPANY THINKS THAT THIS IS THE FUTURE OF MIRRORLESS CAMERAS:

From the Sony A1 to the Fujifilm GFX100S, this year has got off to a flying start for new mirrorless cameras – but none of them are arguably as innovative or intriguing as the Alice Camera.

The large asterisk here is that the ‘AI camera’, which combines a Micro Four Thirds camera with your phone, doesn’t actually exist yet in final production form. But if all goes to plan, the Indiegogo project (387% funded and counting) will ship in October 2021. Which means we’ll find out soon if it lives up to its lofty promises.

These include the claim that Alice Camera will offer “the experience of a phone, the quality of a DSLR” and that it is “the camera of the future”. Industrial-strength hyperbole, or does this mysterious project genuinely have a chance of succeeding where the lumbering camera giants have failed?

THE ABOVE INFORMATION IS COMPLIMENTS OF “TECH RADAR”, WHO HAS HAD A SIGNIFICANT LOOK AT THIS CAMERA.

We chatted to the makers of Alice Camera, from the computational photography startup Photogram AI, to find out exactly how this plucky project plans to provide a modern alternative to existing cameras that are, in its words, “not fit for purpose”. Our early feeling? Cautious optimism…

2ND GENERATION CAMERA JUST INTRODUCED:

It appears that this camera was originally manufactured in 2021, and they asked people to get the camera and help them to get feedback on how to improve the first model. So, with the introduction of this camera, I am posting videos of this camera and all that you want to know about this.

Here the owner of Alice Camera introduces this camera to the world, showing it’s features, it’s capabilities, and much more. This is a great video to get you introduced to the Alice Camera
And now it’s 2022, and they have already upgraded the camera and it’s features. This will let you see how much it’s improved and how it looks to be a good competition to all video cameras or vlogging cameras.

FUJIFILM ANNOUNCES IT’S NEW FLAGSHIP CAMERA TODAY:

FUJI FILM NEW FLAGSHIP CAMERA: X-H2S

FujiFilm is a big player in the photo world. In fact, most photo magazines, most professional photographers know of it’s reputation, and are always thrilled when they introduce a new camera.

Fujifilm has confirmed our speculations and officially announced today via its X-Summit, the FUJIFILM s-h2s, joining the fifth-generation lineup of its X Series mirrorless digital flagship cameras. The X-H2S is expected to release in July 2022.

This latest model from Fujifilm boasts the highest stills and video performance we have ever seen in the history of the X Series with a new stacked-layer back-illuminated X-Trans CMOS 5 HS sensor with 26.16-megapixels.

The Fujifilm X-H2S has been long awaited by enthusiasts of its predecessor, the FujiFilm X-H1S. After much speculation by camera rumor’s hints on what we could potentially expect from Fujifilm’s latest flagship X Series offering,  the announced features and specifications of the X-H2S certainly do not disappoint.

Featuring a high-speed X-Processor 5, the X-H2S is capable of double the processing speed of the X-H1 with significantly improved AF accuracy and image resolution when at low ISO sensitivity and reduced noise in stills when at high ISO sensitivity.

This 26.16MP flagship inherits the previous model’s back-illumination style sensor but also the stack-layer structure, becoming the first stacked APS-C sensor that has quadrupled the speed to read signals compared with the X-H1 model. 

An evolved AF-system is equipped within the X-H2S that is capable of shooting up to 40 frames per second in a blackout-free burst mode, boasting a better readout speed that is four times faster than the current model and a faster AF rate during continuous shooting. The X-H2S’ AI processor also offers newly developed subject-recognition accuracy and subject-detection AF tracking technology!

The improved prediction algorithm within the X-H2S for AF has supposedly led to a major boost in the camera’s capability to track a moving subject. The new subject-detection AF function detects and automatically tracks not only the human face and eyes, but also animals, birds, cars, motorcycles, bicycles, airplanes and trains while keeping a targeted subject in focus constantly, even in low-contrast conditions.

The new Fujifilm X-H2S also boasts evolved video performance, able to record high-definition video while retaining extensive color information. The camera can film high-speed 4K/120P video allowing fast-moving subjects to be presented in smooth slow-motion with finer details.

NEW FUJIFILM CAMERA WITH THE 18-120MM LENS

The new sensor and advanced processor within the X-H2S enables filming 4:2:2 10bit video at 6.2K/30P and 4K/120P, and can also record 4K/60P video without cropping as a result of its reduced rolling-shutter effect. 

When using the camera’s electronic shutter, it can shoot over 1,000 frames continuously at up to 30fps in JPEG as well as 20fps in RAW. The X-H2S supports a variety of codecs including three Apple ProRes codecs: 422, 422 HQ, and 422 LT. 

The AF video performance is also said to be enhanced with the AF+MF function supported when in video mode, and offers the same subject-detection AF function and tracking a fast-moving subject in both stills and videos.

In addition to its impressive video recording and enhanced AF tracking abilities, the Fujifilm X-H2S supports some other exciting features such as an all-new five-axis in-body image stabilization mechanism, which can offer up to 7.0-stop advantage as well as a new sensing control function.

The new X-H2S camera in addition inherits many of the popular design features of the X-H1, such as a larger grip to support larger lenses, a top panel LCD display for users to check the camera settings any time, and a highly robust body that can withstand potential heavy professional use.

The 1.62-million-dot vari-angle LCD monitor offers improved operability along with its buttons and dials upgraded to allow for load adjustment to the AF ON button, so that users can handle the camera exactly as they intend.

The camera’s electronic viewfinder uses a high-resolution 5.76-million-dot panel with  0.8x magnification. The smooth viewfinder has a frame rate of approximately 120fps also offers improved visibility as a result of strong suppression of parallax and distortion, that can often occur when eye positions become displaced while using the viewfinder.

Lower power consumption is another great feature of the X-H2S, extending the maximum video recording time while offering dual memory card slots with support for a CFexpress Type B memory card and a UHS-II SD card. Shutter durability has also been upgraded to withstand 500,000 actuations during Fujifilm’s testing process.

The Fujifilm X-H2S APS-C flagship mirrorless digital camera will be priced at : $2,499 / £2,499 / AU$4,449 approximately) available for pre-order directly from Fujifilm and other retailers from July.

WHY CHOOSE A FUJIFILM CAMERA OVER NIKON OR SONY OR CANON?

FujiFilm cameras have been around a long time, and have made their own cameras for a long time. They have been ranked as one of the best built cameras coming from Japan, as well as using incredibly sharp lenses. FujiFilm is an actual lens manufacture, and has control over every element of the lenses too. And if you get a chance to hold a FujiFilm camera, you can’t help but be impressed. The durability, the technology is there and it will give any other brand a good run for their money.

NEW CAMERA TO WATCH OUT FOR:

Image credit: Photo Rumors

In the camera world, most people don’t even know who DJI is! While the Chinese manufacturer is best known for its line of DJI Drones and action cameras, it also became the majority stakeholder of Hasselblad products around five years ago – meaning that it technically owns the rights to some of its original models. With this in mind, it’s not out of the question for DJI to reproduce an almost carbon copy of the Hasselblad X1D and re-release it with a few changes.

Back in 2019, rumor had it that DJI was producing a mirrorless medium format camera that very closely resembled the Hasselblad X1D, as it had registered a non-branded Chinese clone of the Swedish camera (DJI, of course, owns Hasselblad). 

These speculations have resurfaced following two leaked images that reveal a new DJI-branded camera, again in the shape of the Hasselblad X1D. In addition, fresh reports of a new Hasselblad X2D expected in 2022 have also made headlines. 

The initial rumors of a new medium format camera began in early 2017, when a design patent and rebadged version of the X1D, without a product name, was registered online at CNIPA by DJI in Asia. Leaked images ( Courtesy of Photo Rumors) have recently resurfaced, and look relatively authentic, suggesting this medium format may in fact be a genuine product. 

With the introduction of this camera, the interest in medium format digital cameras may become bigger than ever. Photographers will truly appreciate the bigger sensors that produce amazing photos, better than they ever have had before.

As can be determined from the images, this camera looks pretty real. It’s unclear as to where Photo Rumors got these images from, but it’s likely a reliable source.

It doesn’t quite make sense for DJI to compete against itself, with such a large stake in Hasselblad, so why remove the branded name that it paid so much money to acquire? Who is the target market of this new camera? Will it cost as much as the Hasselblad X1D, or a few thousand dollars less?

While the specifications and details of this camera are obviously unknown, it would be interesting to find out if it will feature the same 50-megapixel sensor as the original Hasselblad X1D. 

The front body of the leaked image does look strikingly similar to the original X1D, with a few minor differences including what appears to be a change of material used for the grip, a darker color palette and rounded AF Illuminator LED, similar to that of the Hasselblad X1D II 50C. 

RUMORS OF SONY MEDIUM FORMAT CAMERA IS ALSO SURFACING.

Sony has plans to enter the medium format camera market. In the next two years, Sony is rumored to introduce a medium format camera with a 150MP and/or 200MP 54x36mm sensor, which is 2.25 times larger than the full-frame 36×24 sensor. Price: $7,500 and $9,999 respectively (for 150MP and 200MP).

Interesting to hear about these cameras, but right now, they are just rumors.

How do these rumors get started? Because someone knows that works with these companies, that they are researching the idea to see if they think they can make money on this. If this looks good, then it will be introduced soon.

YOU HAVE TO SEE THIS NEW NIKON BRIDGE CAMERA: WITH A 125x ZOOM

The new Nikon Coolpix camera with a 24-3000 zoom lens!

What if you could buy a camera that had all the lenses in it that you would ever want, plus it was all in one camera that has everything you want in a DSLR!

THE NEW NIKON COOLPIX P1000 CAMERA SHOULD EXCITE ANYONE WHO LIKES PHOTOGRAPHY!

Bridge cameras often get a bad rap, but the Nikon Coolpix P1000 is still one of the damnedest cameras I’ve ever seen. And it’s all down to its signature party trick: its 125x zoom, which equates to a jaw-dropping 24-3000mm focal range.

I still remember the first time I used the Nikon Coolpix P1000, sat outside a café in Cologne during the last Photokina (which really was the last Photokina). My colleague Ben Andrews had been tasked with reviewing it, and had valiantly sacrificed valuable hand luggage space to bring this comedy sized camera with him to Germany.

“Look at the moon,” he mumbled across the table, prompting me to look up to the sky. “No,” he corrected me, “look at the moon on this.” It was like he’d mounted a camera to a telescope – even in broad daylight, the amount of detail was absolutely mesmerizing. 

Of course, they weren’t reference-quality images. After all, the P1000 employs a 1/2.3-in sensor with 16 megapixels of resolution – and with a sensitivity that tops out at ISO6400, we’re hardly talking Nikon Z9 in terms of performance. 

See the incredible zoom reach…

New Nikon P1000 zoomed out to 80mm equivalent.
Now the zoom lens is zoomed out to a 500mm equivalent (refer back to the first photo to find this part of the photo)
Zoomed out all the way to 3000mm equivalent. And look at the sharpness on this image.

But that’s not what the P1000 is about. Look at these images above, look at the utterly ridiculous zoom range – THAT is what the P1000 is about. The zoom enables you to go from a panoramic view of the city, to a close-up detail of the abbey that is half a mile away (800m).

You know how you sometimes zoom in on your phone, even just 2x, and the quality goes to hell? Even the impressive zooms on the best camera phones like the Samsung S22 Ultra pale in comparison to both the reach and the quality of Nikon’s big black Pinocchio. 

In a world where we’re wowed by more conventional specs – megapixels, dynamic range, burst rate, image stabilization – we forget that the most useful thing on any camera is the ability to ‘get a bit closer’. 

Camera snobs may turn their noses up at cameras like the Nikon P1000, but it is targeted at very different user bases – parents who want to photograph their kids’ soccer games, bird spotters who want to identify animals, general purpose shooters who just want a camera with the longest reach possible. 

And that’s where the best bridge cameras like the P1000 come into their element. They may not win you many photo awards, but they’ll get you the photos that no other camera can. 

The Nikon P1000 has a massive 125X Optical power zoom.

FUJIFILM CAMERAS! ARE WE MISSING SOMETHING?

NEW IMAGE OF FUJI FILM X-H2 CAMERA

When we think of Mirrorless cameras or DSLR cameras, we usually think about Canon, Nikon, Sony, and a few others. But, there is a movement going towards the FujiFilm product. Why? Read on!

FujiFilm cameras have been known for years to be really high quality cameras. But, what most people don’t know is the things FujiFilm cameras can do. Let’s look at some of this company’s achievements:

ProductsDigital imaging, Medical imaging, Photographic materials, Biologics, manufacturing, equipment and servicesCosmetics
Revenue JP¥2.32 trillion (FY 2019)[1]
Operating income JP¥186.57 billion (2019)[1]
Net income JP¥124.99 billion (2019)[1]
Total assets JP¥3.32 trillion (2019)[1]
Number of employees73,906 (2019)[1]

Obviously, FujiFilm is involved in a lot of different things. But, that just gives them money to invest in the photo industry. They have the top engineers, and scientists working on their products all the time.

FujiFilm’s X-t1

When you look at the pro-type cameras in any brand, you will recognize if they are serious contenders in the market, and for professional photographers.

FujiFilm is also a lens manufacture. They have been ranked as one of the best lens manufactures in the world, mostly because they QC their lenses all through the manufacturing process. The Multi-coatings on their lenses are superb. And it would be hard to find a lens that is better than the Fujifilm’s Fujinon lenses.

NEW FUJIFILM S-H2 PRO CAMERA COMING IN 2022.

FUJIFILM WILL INTRODUCE 2 VERSIONS OF THE SAME MODEL. NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE. CHECK THIS OUT:

Back in September a rumor surfaced that the X-H2 would have a brand-new 40MP APS-C sensor, making it Fujifilm’s highest-resolution X-series camera. Now it’s looking like the new Fujifilm X-H2 could come as two versions just with different sensors. 

A trusted source told Fuji Rumours that there will definitely be two Fujifilm X-H2 cameras coming, but gave no more details. What sensors they might possess, we’re not too sure – but we can assume that one of them will be a 40-megapixel X-Trans sensor and the other could be a 40-megapixel Bayer Sensor.

Fujifilm has become famous for its X-Trans sensors and the way they create high-quality images that accurately reproduce color. Bayer sensors, on the other hand, are much more common and the layout of RGB pixels is more uniform. Fujifilm claims that X-Trans sensors are better a color reproduction due to the fact all horizontal and vertical lines contain at least one red, green and blue pixel. It also says that X-Trans sensors are better at reducing moiré, and therefore its cameras have no need for a low-pass filter.

It could be another six months at least before Fujifilm X-H2s start to appear, if registration of the X-H1 was anything to go by. Nokishita has spotted that Fujifilm has just registered a new camera with the code FF210002 but, with worldwide part shortages as well as the expected wait-time, we could be well into 2022 before the X-H2 is readily available.

MORE NEW CAMERA INFORMATION FROM CANON AND SIGMA

Sigma fp L
NEW CAMERA FROM SIGMA: THE MODEL: fpL. Photo taken by Usman Dawood

The Sigma Lens company introduces their new camera. Why would Sigma, who makes incredibly good lenses, all of a sudden decide to get into the camera business as well?

The President of Sigma Corporation, Mr. Yamaki tells us why:

Yamaki gave three reasons. First, he says being a camera manufacturer gives them insights into how images are made from start to finish. This knowledge of the whole process feeds back and makes them a better lens manufacturer. Second, making the whole system is a passion of Sigma’s engineers.

This new model is actually their second camera ever made. And this new camera looks identical to their previous model. But, now has some major differences in it, and certainly something worth thinking about. First, the MP of new cameras keeps improving. This new model camera now brags out at 61MP!! The main benefit of the 61 MP sensor is that this camera has the potential to produce incredible image quality. This is especially the case when you couple it with one of the high-end L-mount lenses such as the Leica Summilux-SL 50mm f/1.4. The downside to these types of lenses is that the camera will become very front heavy due and potentially uncomfortable to handle. Fortunately, Sigma has also produced a number of compact prime lenses such as the Sigma 45mm f/2.8 DG DN. Because of this, the Sigma fp L offers a great deal of flexibility between image quality and portability.

The full-frame sensor in the Sigma fp L produces 61MP files. This is remarkable because the only other camera on the market with that kind of resolution is the Sony A7R IV. To have that kind of quality in such a tiny camera is incredible. Not to mention the fact that this is an L-mount, interchangeable lens camera, which grants a great deal of flexibility when it comes to lens choice. 

Images from the Sigma fp L are highly detailed and offer lots of flexibility. Color profiles in the camera such as the new Power Blue filter help to produce interesting and creative results. These profiles are only baked into the JPEGs meaning you still have full control over your raw files.

NOW: New rumor (which is pretty reliable) from Canon:

Canon EOS R5S 100MP

Don’t shoot the messenger! Canon is set to unleash a 100MP Canon EOS R5S next year, breaking the megapixel record for a full-frame mirrorless camera, according to the latest rumors.

Even though Canon has rumored that they will come out with a 100MP camera, you know there are giants out there already working on ways to beat that. The only thing about this high Megapixel camera is that it also raises prices on cameras. It’s like buying a 1 Terabyte memory card. Really that little card is $500 !!!!

So, when will this ever end? I don’t think it will. But, me as a consumer are getting nervous that the new cameras of tomorrow will be priced about $4000 to $8000 soon. And here is the real deal. Have you ever seen a 40X60 photo from a camera that just has 20MP? It is phenomenal. So, will the printers of tomorrow be able to reproduce images that were taken with these new high resolution cameras. That is yet to be seen.

This latest report from Canon Rumors, however, suggests that Canon is going all out to hit the same 100MP threshold as the all-powerful Fujifilm GFX 100 and Fujifilm GFX 100S. Not to mention giving it a head-and-shoulders advantage over Sony’s rival hi-res body, the 61MP Sony A7R IV

Conclusion by editor:

There comes a time when camera manufactures have got to quit competing against each other. Don’t get me wrong. I love the idea that sensors of today are now sharper than film. But, it’s coming at a cost that soon may hurt the camera manufactures because very few people will be able to afford these Might Megapixel Cameras. Would I love to shoot with these cameras? Oh yeah! Any serious photographer would love these cameras. Hmmm, I wonder if someone would give me one for a while to try one.
