We can finally see more of the new RED Hydrogen system camera phone…I actually don’t know how to call it :)
Marques Brownlee just posted this exclusive first hands-on video:
This is how it compares with other phones:
And this the Hydrogen with a Triplet Lens module attached:
What Marques couldn’t show is the holographic feature. But RED promised to show a more finalized prototype in 1 month or so.
Overall this looks exciting and expensive!
Did you know that some of the old lenses are radioactive? An example is the Canon 55mm f/1.2 FL lens. Mathieu Stern tried to check how dangerous such a lens is.
CIPA released the June unit shipment report. There is good and bad news:
The Good news is that in June 2017 we sold far more cameras than in 2016. But to be fair 2016 was very bad also because of the Kumamoto earthquake aftermath.
The Bad news is that June 2017 still sold far less than in 2015.
To sum up, there is no more decline in the camera unit sales. But a real recovery is not to be expected.
The German photography site Digitalkamera reports that Nikon has decided to stop the production of the current Nikon 1 system cameras. It’s unclear if Nikon plans to announce a new Nikon 1 camera or if the whole system is now dead.
For sure Nikon plans to announce a new mirrorless system camera sometimes in 2018.
