I'm selling my old friend he's Samsung Nx1. He needs somebody who can truly understand it's potential. It may be young, around 20k shots but damn' it can make some pretty neat stuff.
It comes with a battery a canon adapter and a mft adapter and of course with battery and charger.
All this for 1,200 USD ( shipping from Romania )
( You can see more products in the image, but only the camera is for sale. )
DSLR sales are down 12.4% in the Americas... but the real headline number is mirrorless sales have tanked by almost 47%!
I got that quote and those figures from Bob Atkins' site. I have been going to his site for years for insightful reviews of photographic equipment. It was pretty much one of the first sites I went to when I first started getting into digital photography.
I think he sums up the situation best with this quote...
Another interesting thing to note about his article is what is missing when talking about what ails the camera market. The word "video" is almost entirely missing from the article. It is mentioned once in relation to auto focus and PRAISING the Canon 70D and then at the end of the article when he is stating it is not a feature he cares about.
I actually found that article while lurking on another forum where people were discussing Canon's future plans. It was interesting because none of the thread participants mentioned video. Actually one person mentioned the 5D MK II being "hyped" because it had video capabilities. That was it.
Canon won't be launching any revolutionary mirrorless products in the US because that market is infinitely more unappealing than the DSLR market. I won't hold my breath for much innovation in the Rebel line of cameras regarding video. Canon's target market doesn't really seem to notice nor care whether the video is great or not.
If great video was the solution to what ails Canon then why are mirrorless sales (ie Panasonic GH3, G6, etc) plummetting?
I can't see anyone at Canon suggesting Canon go down the Panasonic rabbit hole.
I have a couple of questions regarding shutter angle when using 50p (I live in PAL land but questions relevant to 60p too).
1. If you're going to conform 50fps to 25fps for slow motion, isn't it best to shoot at 1/50th shutter speed (360 degree) in order to retain a 180 shutter angle once the footage is conformed? I think most stuff I've read seems to suggest shooting at 100th sec in 50p even for slow mo. Why? Just to be clear I'm not talking about using twixtor etc. I'm sure this has been discussed before elsewhere, but I can't find anything clear from a quick search.
2. My D5300 shoots 50P at a bit rate of about 37mbps, whereas in 24P it shoots at about 23mbps. So I'm wondering - why don't I shoot 50P at a 360-degree shutter angle (50th sec) and benefit from both the high-bitrate (more detail, less macroblocking, etc) and the look of 25fps motion blur. I might be missing something about the significance/function of shutter angle here, but right now I can't think why this wouldn't work. Just to be clear, I'm not talking about conforming 50p here - this question is about real-time footage.
