50 megapixels? If you made it like the G9, it would be 500 megapixels!
I talk about 500 megapixel sensors, diffraction, and the new Kodak 50 megapixel sensor.
The Canon 5D Mark II is out(via)
The Canon 5D Mk II is here. And I was right that Canon was waiting for everybody else to put their cards on the table before letting loose with the 5D. 21 megapixels (slightly less than the A900, but more than the Nikons), maximum ISO of 25,600, live view, and 1080p HDTV recording.
New Canon A2100 IS and A1100 IS disappoint without manual exposure(via)
I agree with this assessment. An A-series Canon without manual modes is a piece of crap.
Canon A590 IS
I'm a little scared about the A-series from Canon.

The A-series has represented a great Honda Civic (Or Toyota Corolla, which is the most recent car we've purchased) sort of experience. It's not excellent at anything in particular. It's not the smallest. It's not the most impressive. It's not the best in the darkness. But, at the very least, it gets you most of the way there. It takes decent pictures, has a decent user interface, and doesn't suck in any major way. And because it's utilitarian and not sexy, you don't pay tons of money for it.
Sony Alpha A900 full frame dSLR(via)
The Sony Alpha A900 is out, with a full-frame 24.6 megapixel sensor with built in IS. I'm the sort of person who thinks that this, paired with a 50mm 1.8 lens, would be fairly neat. You can bet that Canon was probably waiting for this to occur before they announced their 5D replacement, tho.
Voigtlander Bessa III 120 6x6 / 6x7 (via)
It's $2250, but I still kinda want the Voightlander Bessa III 6x7 folding rangefinder. Not bad enough to pass around a hat.... yet. :D
Black and White Winter in New York City
I went to New York City lately on vacation and shot a bunch of film while I was there, wandering the streets with three cameras.
Far beyond the megapixel race
Every time somebody bumps up the number of megapixels, there's always another set of blog posts about how useless the megapixel race is. But I don't think they get it right all the time...
Camera gadgetry and the modern digital camera
Often times, I hear people talk about their cameras as if they are classes in one's college education. They don't want to get a newer camera until they are comfortable that they've figured out their current digital. I find that, as somebody who takes his photography very seriously, that I have a mental model for photography that I simply try to fit as well as possible into the camera that currently is in my hands, so this idea becomes foreign to me.
Spring 2007 Camera announcement season, part one
Despite my film-shooting bent, I do like to keep up with the digital scene as well. This is all rampant speculation based on the available facts, given that nobody's dropping any expensive loaner hardware on my doorstop anytime soon.
Canon G10 Information Posted at Pop Photo Website(via)
The official rumors on the G10! My bet is that the sensor is still tiny and the biggest improvement is going to be the dedicated exposure compensation dial. I could be wrong, however.
Hotshoe flashes for a Canon G7 or S5 IS
Two recent high-end Canon P&S cameras that seem to be popular with the buying audience have hotshoes. The G series of Canons have always had a hotshoe, but the S series hasn't until now.
Strobist: Canon G9: The New Polaroid?(via)
And here I thought I was a little oddball for wandering around with my G7 and my RB67... but apparently everybody else does that too.
New Canon announcements... and new features here
Canon announces the 1Ds Mk III and the 40D... my G7 is obsolete... and I add commenting
Prying my film from my cold dead fingers
Today, even though they are distinctly technologically obsolete, you can buy oak barrels, hand-forged iron items, hand-spun fabrics, biplanes, heirloom plants, and a variety of painting processes that Acrylic paints were supposed to replace.
