SamsungCameraRumors spotted a funny (or non-sense) new term invented by Samsung. It's "Videotography". Samsung says:

Videotography is an uncompromising combination of video and photography where still images pulled from video stand as photographs in their own right

WTF?

    I thought they were called frame grabs.

    I'd like to know which shutter speed was used. If they used a 1/60 shutter, that would be great for a cinematic video, but to low for screenshots. Much more than that and the results is the opposite.

    I was just about to ask if perhaps he crapped himself.

Egami spotted a new Canon patent describing a new adapter for a yet non existing Canon Full Frame Mirrorless camera. Of course we never know if and when a "patent-camera" will become a real thing. But for sure Canon will launch such a mirrorless system camera one day.

    It could be an adapter to mount Canon EF/EF-S lenses onto a future Canon mirrorless format that would more or make existing Canon lenses "native."

    It's not a patent for a full frame mirrorless camera, but a patent describing an adapter of some sort. it has nothing to do with mirrorless cameras but describing more of a way of mounting lenses of different image circles on an existing camera bo...

The next great review from TCST team.

The Leica Q can be preordered at BHphoto.

    > but it can be solved in firmware

    Unlikely, seems like a sensor limitation.

    TCST have mentioned (officially, so no guessing) before that Panasonic provided them with a test firmware with V-Log for the test purposes.

    Jordan is getting better at getting the video off the Panasonic. Shutter speed this time is good, but colors are still slightly off.

The Dutch site Cameranu.nl leaked the new Samsung Mini 2 camera. It has a 20.5 MP sensor and records 4K. Some more specs:

stereo audio
4K-video
sensor seems the same one as in the current NX Mini
super amoled display instead of lcd (resolution of new screen unknown)
retractable flash in body (indirect flash seems possible)
external flash connector removed
DirectLink-button disappeared. On/off-button gone to the back, next to new flash-button
D-pad now with scrollwheel (!)
1820mAh-battery/400 shots (instead of 2330mAh/650 shots for NX Mini)
separate door for battery and connectors
metal rings on both sides for neck strap (instead of compactcamera style wrist strap provision)
marking for sensor plane on top
more 'manly' styling...
and last but not least ... interchangeable front...

    But thats the point you want a very good very capable fixed lens camera and it is already on the market in the RX100 why comment on a camera that is in a different market aimed at different people to those who use the the rx100. in essence your sa...

    For one The nxm with adapter gives you a 1.8x multiplier on all your NX lenses which gives you fast zoom capability that rx100 can't touch.

    Of course you did NOT understand my initial post. When they announced the mini, as a nx shooter I was thrilled hoping that it would have been a very capable camera (like rx100 imo is) to be used also with existing nx lenses in order to get a sort ...

The announcement party isn't completely over yet. There is one one thing to come from Panasonic before the hot Summertime season....or Winter time if you live on the wrong side of the planet :)

Panasonic is likely to introduce a new FX300 superzoom lens with 1 inch (Sony) sensor. There is also a rumor about a new MFT telephoto lens.

After the Panasonic announcement we expect Sony-Olympus-Nikon-Canon to have new announcement in September and October.

Photorumors got word about the two next possible Samsung lenses:

1) 24mm f/1.4 S
2) either 70-400mm f/4-5.6 S or 100-400mm f/4-5.6 S

    Samsung Wish list: 15MM 3F, 35MM OS 2F, 100MM OS MACRO/TELE 2.8F

    Why publishing today a rumor appeared more than 1 month ago?

    I still hope this comes to reality. I'd like to buy both the lenses. As to the zoom, I'd prefer it to be 100-400, instead of 70-400.
