Fujifilm's entry-level X-A7 comes with 4K video and face detection

Fujifilm's entry-level X-A7 comes with 4K video and face detection Fujifilm has unveiled the entry-level X-A7 with some key new features that make it a nice upgrade over its predecessor, the X-A5. It packs Fujifilm's latest 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor and has 8.5 times as many phase-detect pixels as its previous entry-level model, the X-A5, for starters. That gives it much faster autofocus speeds and quick face detection, though burst shooting speeds remain at 6 fps. For video, the X-A7 can now handle 4K at 30 fps rather than being hobbled at 15fps like the last model, and Fujifilm said it has less rolling shutter, too (a possible jab at Sony). 1080p shooting speeds are limited to 60 fps, however.

The leaked document also claims that X - Pro 3 will debut with a new HDR shooting mode that will combine multiple shots taken at different exposure It will be weather-sealed at 70 different points , so this little beauty should be able to brave the elements while it travels with you. We also know the

To quell the rumors from flooding the internet, Fujifilm introduced us to the X-Pro3 at the company's X Summit held in Tokyo in September this year, highlighting some of the physical changes being made to the rangefinder line-up. Fujifilm even told us when the official announcement will be, with a countdown clock ticking down the seconds to October 23.

What we didn't know at the time was the internal specs, but reliable and prolific camera leaker Nokishita has found a bunch of the X-Pro3's product images and a document that reads like a press release for the new snapper.

Sony's A9 II mirrorless camera has faster, smarter autofocus

  Sony's A9 II mirrorless camera has faster, smarter autofocus Most photographers loved the speed of Sony's full-frame A9, but were less fond of the handling and durability. With today's launch of the Alpha A9 II full-frame mirrorless camera, Sony has addressed a lot of those issues. It has the same fast shooting speeds as before, but is more rugged and weatherproof thanks to a new, anti-shock shutter and better seals and covers. At the same time, a redesigned grip makes it easier to handle, especially if you're shooting for hours with a long telephoto lens.The A9 II keeps the same 24.

Nokishita Camera has leaked the images and specs of upcoming Fujifilm X - Pro 3 mirrorless The camera features a new HDR shooting function, which combines multiple continuously shot Weather sealing has been applied at 70 points to give the camera advanced dust and moisture resistance.

According to the document, the X-Pro3 will house a 26.1MP back-illuminated X-Trans 4 CMOS IV sensor (as opposed to the 24MP X-Trans CMOS III sensor in the X-Pro2) which will work alongside the fourth-generation X-Trans image processor. This will bring the upcoming camera on par with the X-T3 and give it the processing power it needs for 4K video recording and improved autofocus (AF) performance.

Fujifilm has also, apparently, improved the AF algorithm for the X-Pro3, potentially giving the snapper the ability to focus at -6EV (Exposure Value). To put that number into perspective, the X-Pro3 should be able to focus on a subject in practically pitch-black conditions.

Hands-on with the Z 50, Nikon's first mirrorless APS-C camera

  Hands-on with the Z 50, Nikon's first mirrorless APS-C camera Nikon has unveiled its first-ever APS-C DX mirrorless camera, the 20.8-megapixel Z 50. That makes two different camera systems launched a year apart, which is quite a pace for a conservative company like Nikon. The Z 50 is less than half the price of the Z 6, so it should appeal to a broader market, especially folks who already own Nikon DSLR lenses. Nikon now has both full-frame and crop sensor mirrorless systems, just like its rivals Canon and Sony. Just over a year ago, it essentially had zero, not counting the moribund Nikon 1.

Sure shot

Until now, autofocus range limiters have been a feature on many high-end lenses, but not a camera. The X-Pro3, according to the leaked document, will bring with it an AF range limiter with two preset values to choose from. When a particular value is chosen, the camera assumes you're interested in subjects within that range, and will only attempt to focus within that distance. This improves AF speed and accuracy as the camera isn't trying to guess where you want it to focus.

The leaked document also claims that X-Pro3 will debut with a new HDR shooting mode that will combine multiple shots taken at different exposure settings into one to bring out every detail possible.

Fujifilm's X-Pro3 can focus in almost complete darkness

  Fujifilm's X-Pro3 can focus in almost complete darkness Fujifilm has officially unveiled the X-Pro3, the latest in its esoteric X-Pro lineup aimed at street photographers and photojournalists. Teased last month, it has a number of eccentric features, including a 3.5-inch, 1.65-million dot rear display that you can't even see without flipping down. Otherwise, it only shows the shutter speed, aperture and other basic information, or the film simulation if you're using one. The idea is to free theThe idea is to free the photographer from distractions and help them "stay in the moment," as Fujifilm puts it.

With a new sensor comes a new focus system. A total of 325 focus points cover the sensor, and the central 40 percent of the imaging area utilizes It includes vertical shooting controls, making the X -T2 more comfortable to use in portrait orientation, and offers the same level of weather protection as the

Official product information of FUJIFILM X - Pro 2, a premium mirrorless camera of the X series. For enhancing the quality of indoor sports photography, the upgrade allows users to reduce flicker in pictures and the display when shooting under fluorescent lighting and other similar light sources.

The camera will also be able to combine up to nine multiple exposures in the Additive, Average, Comparative Bright or Comparative Dark modes that were taken at different times and from different viewpoints. If you want to get creative, the document states that you can apply Fujifilm's superb Film Simulation modes to each frame before combining for a multi-layered collage.

Speaking of the Film Simulation Modes: looks like Fujifilm has added a "Classic Neg" mode to the options which emulates images shot on color negative films, adding chromatic contrast to the results. A black-and-white adjustment function first introduced with with X-T3 and X-T30 cameras will also make its way to the X-Pro3, although it will now be called the Monochrome Color function. This should help you add warmth or cool tones to monochrome images.

And that is only just a few of the improvements made to the shooting modes in the X-Pro3, with features like "clarity setting" (to accentuate textures and outlines of subjects) and Grain Effect (to simulate film photography) also making its way into the menu options.

Canon M6 Mark II review: Incredible performance from a flawed flagship

  Canon M6 Mark II review: Incredible performance from a flawed flagship The newest addition to the Canon lineup is the EOS M6 Mark II APS-C mirrorless camera, proving that the company isn't just about full-frame EOS R cameras. The M6 II is now the flagship in the EOS-M series, replacing both the M5 and M6 models. The most impressive part of the M6 II is the all-new 32.5-megapixel sensor, making it the highest-resolution crop-sensor camera you can buy. It also delivers some of the fastest shooting speeds I've seen onThe most impressive part of the M6 II is the all-new 32.5-megapixel sensor, making it the highest-resolution crop-sensor camera you can buy.

You shoot me down... I am titanium

As we already know, Fujifilm has used titanium for the exterior of the camera, making it corrosion resistant. It will be weather-sealed at 70 different points, so this little beauty should be able to brave the elements while it travels with you.

We also know the viewfinder has been given a refresh. Users will be able to switch between an optical viewfinder (OVF) and an electronic one (EVF) with a 3.60 million-dot resolution and a high contrast ratio of 1:5000. A couple of display options have also been built into the EVF's performance mode, which might come in handy when shooting fast-moving objects.

The so-called 'hidden' rear LCD display shares the same 1.62 million-dot resolution of the X-Pro2, but this time it's a touchscreen which will flip 180 degrees so you can shoot from different angles. The smaller 1.28-inch display on the back is a color LCD protected with toughened glass that will display shooting information regardless of whether the camera is powered on or off.

The leaked document also claims that the quick menu (Q button) functionality has also been improved to display 4, 8, 12 or 16 icons. And looks like we might be getting a USB Type-C port (USB3.1 Gen1) for both fast file transfer and in-camera battery charging.

The Fujifilm X-Pro3 will be announced on October 23 at 1am EDT in the US (that's 6am BST / 4pm AEDT), but with practically every detail already leaked online, there doesn't seem to be any surprises left for us to discover.

Sony A6600 review: A rare misstep for Sony's cameras .
As Sony's new flagship APS-C camera, the 24.2-meagpixel A6600 has a lot to live up to. First of all, it had to follow the A6500, launched in 2016 with innovative features like 4K 30 fps video, fast 11 fps shooting speeds, in-body stabilization and face- and eye-tracking. For a couple of years, nothing else on the market could touch it. What's more, the A6600 arrived just after Sony's 61-megapixel A7R IV full-frame mirrorless camera -- possibly the best camera I've ever seen. From a competition standpoint, Sony is also under pressure to top Fujifilm's X-T3, which has a higher-resolution sensor, more 4K video features and much better handling than the A6500.
