After a long time away from the blog I am reviving it again with new look and some new posts.
While I was away, things in camera world have been moving along with new camera releases from Nikon, Fuji, Olympus, Panasonic and Sony. Nikon finally introduced their long anticipated APS-C action flagship D500 with amazing AF capabilities, tilting screen, 4K video recording and a touchscreen. While Fuji jumped to 24 megapixel sensor with the introduction of X-Pro 2 and X-T2. Fuji also became serious about video recording with the inclusion of 4K video recording in X-T2.
Sony introduced A6500 APS-C camera with 5-Axis in-body stabilization and touchscreen, a first for their APS-C mirrorless cameras. Olympus and Panasonic both continued to release refresh of their mid-tier camera line up. Olympus also released PEN-F, their first camera with the new 20 megapixel micro 4/3 sensor first seen in Panasonic Gx8. There have been other releases as well such as Canon G7X Mark II, Sony V and Sony RX100 III.
Overall, despite the shirking market cameras have not been wiped out by cellphones (yet) and manufacturers continue to work hard for their piece of the pie.
