An update on the NX-L speed booster for the Samsung NX1

By Andrew Reid (EOSHD)

Comment on this article at the EOSHD Forum

(Above, shot on the NX1 & full frame NX-L). The Samsung NX1 is at this moment in time the best value for money 4K Super 35mm camera with the best ergonomics and autofocus. I still end up using my NX1 more than my Sony A6500 and Fuji X-T20, which pale into insignificance vs what Samsung did nearly 3 years ago. Now the NX-L speed booster has developed further since my last article and I’ve been shooting a lot more with it. What’s new? The original crowd-funded NX-L adapter which raised over 8000 euros in the first campaign, is a one-of-a-kind custom made …

I found a prototype of the RED Hydrogen holographic screen

In the UK last week I was idly browsing second-hand goods store Cash Converters for lenses and came across a ‘holographic reality’ display. On it was printed the name “Leia”, as in …

Thoughts on the Panasonic G9… Sony A9 gets a much cheaper rival

By Andrew Reid (EOSHD)

Comment on this article at the EOSHD Forum

Comment on the forum The Panasonic G9 seems like the start of a big push by Panasonic with serious photographers. By taking the technology developed for video, they have created one of the fastest cameras ever made for sports and wildlife photography… And the video specs aren’t bad either. Having courted photographers before with the rangefinder style GX8, this is the first time Panasonic have made a DSLR-style G camera body the main flagship for photos. From G1 to G7, they made consumer mid-range cameras. This time out, with the consumer market continuing to shrink, I think it looks like …

Sony A7R III announced with 4K HDR, ergonomic improvements – but no 10bit or 4K60p!

By Andrew Reid (EOSHD)

Comment on this article at the EOSHD Forum

Comment on the forum Sony have taken the wraps off their biggest release of the year, the A7R III. It’s a very respectable update for photographers, a smaller one for video shooters. What’s new in the A7R III for video shooters? Well the improved ergonomics introduced with the A9 are on this body along with a new higher resolution 3.3m dot EVF. The camera now shoots 4K in Hybrid Log Gamma for compatibility with the latest 4K HDR TVs, like the Panasonic GH5. Unlike the GH5 however, it is held back by the 8bit 4:2:0 codec. HDR and HLG require …
