    Large, relatively slow, very expensive and only manual focus. Sounds like a win for Sony A7 users /sarcasm.

Selfie madness is spreading all over the world and Sony just specialized to fulfill those absurd needs :)

After the KW1 they will announce the QX30 camera. The QX30 is a 30x xoom camera. Mental how people will use it to take selfies...I know...but I bet they will sell ton of this stuff!

Back to some Sony rumors!

ILCE-QX1:
Tomorrow (Sept. 3) at 16:30 Berlin time Sony will announce the new ILCE-QX1 smartphone mount module. It likely has the current A6000 24 megapixel APS-C sensor and will cost 300 Euro (450 Euro with the 16-50mm zoom lens). Don't know if such a "thing" will sell or not. But Chapeau to Sony for being that innovative!

FS700II:
Filmaker.cn leaked the first image of the $10,000 E-mount 4K FS700II camcorder.

A part of those two new cameras Sony/Zeiss will announce plenty of E-mount lenses at Photokina:

16-35mm f/4.0 Zeiss
28-135mm powerzoom
85mm FE prime Zeiss (available 2015)
35mm f/2.0 Loxia
50mm f/2.0 Loxia

    On the one hand, you can't help but marvel at the imagination and boldness in releasing products like this.

    But on the other, if you're still waiting for lenses you want or need to get the most out of a Sony camera, I don't see how not to f...

    more lenses - when will we see a 24-70mm F2.8 and 70-200mm F2.8 for the Emount - not the FE mount - so a smaller and less expensive version of the FE 70-200mm F4.0 - and F2.8 for the A6000 etc

Got some NX1 specs form a highly trusted source.

1) 1499 Euro for the body only
2) 28 megapixel APS-C sensor (said to be the best on market yet)
3) Phase detection af pixels on sensor
4) 154 cross type autofocus points

6) FullHD EVF (again said to be the best on market yet)

    +2! Although I do think they COULD become a serious player with the Samsung name, they are always a year or two too late with the camera they put out for the price they list at release. The NX1 might be the right camera at the right time tech wise...

    well that settles it then. you said it yourself, you are nothing and have nothing to prove and not a photographer. you just proved that you are spamming. and I believe that they did a good job on whatever forum you got banned on. and it clearly...

    in terms of Kirk Tuck and Steve Huff you are right. They are very objective/critic.
    Both have highly recommended the galaxy nx.

Just got this image. It shows a Zeiss Loxia (50mm?) on the Sony A7r! The new 50mm and 35mm f/2.0 Loxia could be announced tomorrow (or Tuesday). No idea how much they will cost yet.

 

Share it where you want and be nice...link back to me please ;)

    Have you ever used a lens with blue or red mark? Sure they come at premium, but the feel great to use and they deliver quality you expect. I say - great to have that option too. There is plenty of cheaper yet very good glass for those who have dif...

    Nice 550$ the lens and 550$ supplement for the blue logo on the sunshade. Let's wait what the budget has to be for it? Without AF and minimum electronics it should be more pricey, but with Zeiss, no one really knows. Blue or red marks on cameras a...

The best APS-C performer at DxO yet.

One of my long time good sources said that Samsung soon to be announced NX1 is said to have the best DxOmark score of all APS-C cameras. The camera will score around the mid-80 points therefore beating the best Nikon D7100 and Sony A6000 sensors.

    The lenses are very good and quite cheap for what they are and I found two out of three bodies I own heavily discounted and on sale. I won't buy Samsung boring cameras at the price of Sony's or Fuji's, for sure.

    I see that you love buying boring, dull and ugly cameras.

  • August 31, 2014 21:46, tecnoworld said:

    True. Boring is the perfect word to describe nx cameras till now. Some of them are averagely good, all of them get the job done, but none of them has the "wow" factor that's needed in this business to turn ppl's heads. The nx1 will probably have t...

Samsung teases the NX1!

On September 15 Samsung will announce the 28 megapixel NX1 camera. And the first teaser has been spoiled at SamsungTomorrow. There is little to be seen on these images a part of the huge grip :)

I am working to get more specs...this will be the big news at Photokina for sure!

    My point wasn't that you cant get good-great performance out of a small body, my point is all 'Pro' level cameras (from all companies apart from the X-pro1) in the CSC market are larger and for the same reason 'Pro' level cameras have always been ...
