Nikon D810 – So…What’s Coming from Canon???

I’m a little surprised Nikon announced a replacement for the D800 / D800e before Canon even releases a high megapixel camera to challenge it. I do like my 5D MKIII, and know its not all about MP…but would still like a super high megapixel camera for studio and landscape use…why not?

The under $4k price of the D810 is very attractive.

Blackmagic Design Production Camera 4k now shipping…and lower price?


So, the Blackmagic Production Camera 4K is now shipping and they’ve lowered the price by $1000. I wonder if that has anything to do with Panasonic announcing the GH4 4k camera last week? Blackmagic camera looks interesting, though the internal rechargeable battery is only good for about 90min…and it has to be hooked up to external power to recharge. Not a big deal for a big production…but limits its flexibility for traveling light / run and gun etc.

The following is from blackmagicdesign.com:
