First of all a nice Sunday to all of you! And before we go on with new rumors let’s talk about how companies should actually make the cameras so that they are almost perfect:

On the video above Tony Northup shares his ideas about the perfect camera. And Ming Thein shows us how to design mirrorless right.

Companies should take note of their suggestions and make such cameras for a low price 😉

Canon Expo Paris posted a full hd video from glowworms in a cave New Zealand, they are not visible to the humans eye – very impressive! It has been taken with the ME20F-SH camera that will be released in December.

Samsung NX500 DxO sensor reviewed: “New leader for hybrid APS-C sensor image quality”.

Bildschirmfoto 2015-10-10 um 13.06.37

DxOmark tested the NX500 sensor and the results are impressive! It beats the previous leader the Sony A6000 by 5 points! Samsung really achieved some great results with their latest generation sensor. Beating Sony means beating the best sensor maker to date. I am now wondering if a performance like that will be enough to make the NX system attractive. Seems like Samsung has an “image problem” among the photographers community.

Look at that video: Canon 250 megapixel camera with 800mm lens!

You remember that 250MP prototype Camera from Canon? On that video you can see why the hell that crazy Megapixel number matters! The tester sent me (And Also CanonWatch) that text:

The test with the 800mm lens is impressive!
A advertising on an hotel can read with the 800mm on top from 15km distance!
An human can see from 3km distance.
A big building can see from a distance 20-25 km with a normal lens!
And canon can stabilize the ,,fata morgana effect” (see at 2:04 min) from hot rising air. Canon call it ,,removal Turbulence”.
