Sony DSC-RX10 MK IV Officially AnnouncedSony DSC-RX10 MK IX Front Three Quarter View

- Yesterday (September 12, 2017) was another big day in the world of photography gear industry news announcements. The biggest announcement came from Apple (iPhone 8 and iPhone X both look amazing) but a few hours before Apple had their keynote Sony had an event of their own. The RX0 was the first announcement (I wrote up a quick article here) but the big news was the Sony DSC-RX10 MK IV superzoom camera. In this article I’ll talk about the history of the RX10 series, go over the headline specifications of the latest version and I’ll share my thoughts on the RX10 Mark IV (as well as if I’ll be ordering one for myself).

the Fujifilm X-E3

- This morning I awoke to some exciting news from Fujifilm. They officially announced the upcoming Fujifilm X-E3,  a significant update to their popular X-E2s (along with some new lenses and some substantial firmware updates). I’m a huge fan of Fuji cameras, especially their awesome X-Trans sensors, even though I don’t own one of their cameras. With every new announcement I ask myself: “Is this the camera that will finally get you to buy into the Fuji system?”

Introducing the New Sony RX0


Sony Introduces a New Kind of Camera

Yesterday, at IFA 2017, Sony announced some new “innovations” (their word) and while most really didn’t mean much to me, there were a few items that caught my eye. The first was their new projector announcements (I have a pretty extensive background in video projection so I still follow that industry very closely). The second was the announcement of a new camera, the Sony RX0.

At a glance it looks like a new “action cam” – but a quick look at the specifications tells me it’s anything but a new entry to an existing digital imaging market. It’s something all together different from anything I’ve seen. For this article I’ll share some of the technical specifications and some thoughts about this camera and who it’s most likely aimed at.

Nikon D850 DSLR (Coming Soon)


Long time readers of my blog know that I’m pretty exclusively a Sony shooter (and Minolta before that) so an article about an upcoming Nikon camera may seem out of place. But I have so many close friends and colleagues that are shooting Nikon gear that I can’t help but have respect for the Nikon system. With the introduction of the new Nikon D850 it seemed like a great time to step outside of my normal system and share some thoughts about this brand new camera.
