Chris Marquardt

Chris doesn't usually like to talk about new hardware, because he doesn't want people to think that a new camera will make you a better photographer. It doesn't. But there are two new cameras coming that are going to be pretty nice.

1) The Sony A7III will have 61MP and a full-frame sensor with 10fps burst shooting. That means it has a huge buffer of up to 68 images! It also has eye tracking with better autofocus. Even for animals. It also has Pixel Shifting to increase to up to 240MP in still life. Cost is $3500 available Sept 2019.

2) SIGMA FP. This is the one that Chris finds more interesting. The Sigma FP will be the world's smallest full-frame digital mirrorless camera, at under 15 oz. It'll also support the L mount, so it'll support a huge array of lenses from Leica, Panasonic, and Sigma. It will also support shooting Raw video, and many are suggesting it'll be a good cinema camera option for indy shooters are well. One issue though, is that it only has an electronic shutter, and that could cause greater rolling shutter issues. So don't move it around much. 24MP sensor. Comes out in the fall, but pricing hasn't been announced just yet.

Our next photo assignment is - DOOR. Take a photo of, about or otherwise concerning the concept of "DOOR" and then post it to the Tech Guy Group on Flickr. Make sure to tag it with the word "DOOR" as well! And if Chris likes it, it could end up on next week's photo review segment!
