WVIL

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.

New Posts? Say what?

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

No time = No Posts.

I have been way too busy for my own good. That being said I have not posted in a very long time. I will also not be posting frequently until December again. I will try to continue to post weekly updates though.

There has been a lot of cool things going on while I haven’t been posting though.

First and foremost The Wordsman Show was green lit by RTN (Rowan Television Network). Keep an eye out for our new content to be posted by November.

Also the Canon 1DX has been announced. I’ve seen some videos and boy is this thing FAST. No 1080P @ 60FPS though? really Canon? There’s at least one reason to go Sony, not to mention their translucent mirror technology. Check out CheesyCam’s post about theCanon 1DX.

Also, check out the Lytro Camera that you can literally focus after you take the shot.

DSLR Video of the Week.

Yes, I’m starting DSLR Video/film of the week. Every week I will choose a video that is posted on line shot with a DSLR and post it here.

This music video was shot by a friend of mine and I really like it. They used a 5DmII and a 7D.

An interesting fact is that for the choruses shot at 60fps they actually had the band play the song much faster so it would sync up in slow motion…pretty cool huh?

A Few Hours with the Canon 50mm 1.8

What a nice little lens. For (currently) $107 the Canon 50mm f1.8 is a MUST have. Sure it’s made of plastic, as light as paper, and would not stand abuse, but for $107 why not?

Here’s a slideshow of some of the pictures I took today.

Sony A77 Hands on review

Here is a hands on review of the A77 by TechRadar. It is a multiple page review complete with sample images.

It has very good thoughts about the EVF although it does make it clear that the 12fps burst shooting will not be useful in certain situations.

Great read, check it out!
