David Thorpe: “Why I (Nonetheless) Use Micro 4 Thirds”

David Thorpe:I bought my first Micro Four Thirds gear 8 years ago. Since then I’ve used nothing else. With the big hitters like Nikon and Canon – even maybe Panasonic – jumping on the bandwagon now with full frame mirrorless models, has Micro Four Thirds had its day? UPDATE! I say in the video that I have put a link to an interesting comparison between FF and Micro Four Thirds print performance – YouTube won’t let me do that, I find. The link is to The School of Photography – https://youtu.be/OGn3yPl59ZM

Unreleased Canon Gear Leakes By Certification Authority (EOS 80D and EOS 5Ds replacements?)

Nokishita posted a new list of camera codes used in certification authorities.Note that both DS126751 and DS126761 are either DSLRs or full frame mirrorless cameras. One might be the replacement for the EOS 5Ds(R) or the rumored high resolution EOS R model. It’s suggested that both models have a full frame sensor, either in a DSLR or a MILC. However, DS126761 seems to refer to a more entry level oriented camera and thus may well point to the Canon EOS 80D or Rebel SL2 replacements (maybe something got lost in translation?). Both are expected to be announced in the first half of 2019. P2355 refers to a PowerShot camera and might be the PowerShot G7X Mark III. No signs of the EOS 7D Mark III here.

Google Development comparability between the Canon EOS-R, Nikon Z7 and Sony A7III

This isn’t a scientific or precise tool to measure a cameras success. But just out of curiosity here is the Google Trend comparison between the new EOS-R, Z7-Z6 and A7III. It seems to show that none of the new Canon and Nikon cameras can really “out-trend” the Sony A7III.
