Ted Forbes: Hasselblad 907x hands on first impressions!

Ted Forbes:

The Hasselblad 907x and the new CFV II 50C Medium Format digital back are now out! Hasselblad were kind enough to loan me this system for a few weeks to shoot with – it is amazing. Specs are very similar to the Hasselblad X1D II, but there are two things that make this camera different. First are the ergonomics – this is very similar to the original Hasselblad designs from the 1950’s – early 2000’s, particularly the form factor of the SWC cameras. Secondly, it is modular so you can pair the back up and use it with any V-system Hasselblad such as the 500CM up to the 503CX. There is literally nothing else like this in any medium format system today. Fujifilm and Phase One make great cameras, but I think this is the most interesting product to hit the market this year. Its incredible.

Is Canon EOS M Dead?

Camera Conspiracies writes:

It was never a very inspiring system to begin with. Designed to be as small and light as possible, means very slow lenses. Throw in the Canon Cripple Hammer, and the EOS M system never really took off. Is it worth buying into the system in 2020? Is there any potential in the Canon M50 mark II? Will they create a flagship camera for the system and develop faster glass?

TheSlanted Lens: Does Sensor Size REALLY Matter? Camera Sensor Size Comparison – Part Two

The Slanted Lens writes:

In this Camera Sensor Size Comparison we compare the Fujifilm GFX 100 Medium Format, Sony a7r IV Full Frame, Canon EOS R Full Frame, Fujifilm X-T4 APS-C Format and the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Micro Four Thirds Format cameras. We take a look at equivalency and also compare them in daylight and low light. Are larger megapixels cleaner in low light? How does the grain compare? How does ISO affect the images? And how are details maintained in overexposed and underexposed images.
Take a look and let us know your thoughts!

Olympus E-1 – Is 5MP DSLR From 2003 Good Enough For Today?

Robin Wong:

With all the rage of new cameras capable of shooting 8K videos, ridiculously high Megapixels, even smartphones these days have 100MP cameras, I thought it was time to revisit where it all started for Olympus – their first ever Digital SLR E-1. This is a 17 years old camera (released in 2003) and has only 5MP image sensor, though that is a Kodak CCD image sensor that was well-praised for its incredibly beautiful color rendering. A dinosaur DSLR with only 5MP, 3 AF points and barebones function/features, can the Olympus E-1 survive in 2020? I brought the E-1 out for a full day shutter therapy session and here in this video I share my experience and many, many fresh images from my street photography session!
