WVIL…yes that stands for Wireless Viewfinder Interchangeable Lens, duh.
If i was the guy on the left holding that lens…I would have ran for my life with it. Okay, maybe not.
Their website has a few more details. Not only can you just walk around and put your lens anywhere and take pictures with just the screen, you can use this with almost any new lens. The website states that it is compatible with Nikon F series mounts, Canon EF series mounts, and mico 4/3 mounts. It features a full frame sensor too!
Their website claims it’s just a camera concept for now, but the video from CES made it look just like a product that should be on shelves, or even better in my living room.
Not sure how many people who have the high quality optics need to have a touch screen to operate them, but either way this technology is just outstanding and really innovative.
So, in my time off from school during winter break I have been trying not to post, because I know as soon as I get back to school I will probably run out of time again like i did last semester.
But with all of the crazy tech at CES and the new cameras and features it is just too hard not to.
One of the recent announcements was Nikon’s D4 and the new features it holds. This camera is well out of the range of hobbyists, but their new tech allows you to crop down your own sensor size to specific pixels all the way down to HD size. This means you can use your entire sensor and have a super shallow depth of field. Or create a deep depth of field and create a farther reach with your lens by cropping your sensor.
I’m more excited to see the promise of the tech over the actual camera, although it boasts some great other features, including a clean video output. check out more on the Nikon D4 at cheesycam.com
