"Krazy Klown Kar" won First Place in the Memphis Camera Club September "Creative Print" category.
Wow! September has been a very exciting time in digital photography.
Nikon (Z6/Z7), Canon (EOS R) and Fuji (XT3) have all announced new "Mirrorless" DSLR's.
Going mirrorless is a first for both Nikon and Canon who are trying to stop the bleed to SONY.
SONY first introduced mirrorless cameras over 5 years ago and have put a major hurt on Nikon and Canon.
Unfortunately, Nikon and Canon's initial entry into mirrorless imaging have fallen short.
We were expecting a lot more from the big two manufacturers. One major issue is the lack of a dual card slot.
Canon's EOS R does not have IBIS as well!
Both Nikon and Canon cameras have new, larger lens mounts which is an improvement for image quality but it does come at a high price. The new lenses cost anywhere from double to tripple the cost of existing lenses.
Is it worth the cost? I will let you decide that.
Speaking of costs, the cameras start at $2300-$2400 for the basic models, and around a thousand dollars more for the upgraded models.
Fuji Film's XT3 is the next iteration of their current XT2.
I am interested in seeing the results of these new cameras as they enter the field and are put through the rigors of every day abuse, I mean use.
On a sad note! My Nikon D2X has died.... Yes, after 12 years of service I received the dreaded "err" msg. flashing in the info panel. I tried every solution I could find on-line, including NIKON Support.
Nikon Support, after their recommendation failed to revive my D2X said that it was not supported any more!
My response was it is a hell of a way for a $5000.00 camera to end up!
Keep shooting pictures and video and stay creative!
