Sony launches A7rIV and Says it Rivals Medium Format Image Quality – Signs of Confidence or Nervousness?

Share

Sony launched the Sony A7rIV. You can read the facts and see the live stream again here.

It has a 61 MP full frame sensor, that offers 26 MP in APS-C crop mode. Anyone knows an APS-C Fuji camera with 26 MP out there? It’s all the same sensor wafer, just cut in differnt sizes for X-T3 (26 MP), A7rIV (61 MP) and GFX100 (102 MP).

The Sony A7rIV is a very fine camera, and I know at least one guy, who won’t be able to resist the temptation of buying it.

But one thing really grabbed my attention during the official presentation: the regular reference to medium format image quality.

The first reference comes from a Japanese Sony manager, who says:

Amazon Prime Gone Crazy: This Guy Got a Fujifilm X100F for $ 102 Only

Share

A member of our Fujifilm X100 group, was able to get a Fujifilm X100F (shippend and sold by AmazonUS) for $102.

That’s a hefty 92% discount over the regular $1,299.

AmazonUS has now marked his order as “on the way”. The lucky guy writes:

The tracking info showed that UPS was already in possession of it.”

This would not be the first time, that during the hasty Amazon Prime days, the Amazon system messes up, offering brutal discounts on gear.

Another X100 group member said he noticed a Canon 5D mark IV selling for $ 94, and added that at AmazonPrime 2018, there were several reports of 90% discount on gear.

So, today is the last day of Amazon Prime deals, and I hope that some other of you guys reading this will stumble on such a terrific deal.

I personally grabbed a strongly rebated Sandisk Ultra Dual USB Drive Type-C for myself, since it offers dual USB-3/C connections, so I can use it on my MacBook Pro, but also on the computers of my school, which have no USB-C port.

Fujifilm Patents Touch Sensitive Top LCD Panel

Share

Fujifilm has patented a touch sensitive top LCD panel, that should avoid erroneous operation when turning the command dial.

As I have understood it works basically like this:

If your finger touches the top LCD panel, the command dial is activated and you can adjust your settings. If no finger is on the touch panel, then turning the dial won’t change anything.

This is supposed to help operation with smaller cameras featuring a top LCD panel.

Set your camera, and once your finger is on the shutter button, your settings won’t change if you accidentally hit the command dial.

Moreoever, the top LCD panel adjust the display depending if a finger is detected or not. There is also an option to display fake dials, more or less like we see today already on the Fujifilm GFX100.

These are patents, that may or may not see the light of the day.

But it’s concept Fujifilm is studying, and here on FujiRumors we are always happy to give Fujifilm some feedback :).
