About recent cameras


2015.02.17

The camera we currently use is Nikon's D800E. Two and a half years ago, Canon's 2Dmark5, which had been used to switch to this camera, was sold, including the lens.
The current regular lens is the classic NIKKOR 14-24mm f / 2.8G.
The D800E was shot from the EX Building in Kawasaki, and the 5D2 was from Tokyo GreatVisual. Until then, it was a Leica analog.
It is a set of image quality that can not be complained for unparalleled overwhelming resolution, but there are some dissatisfaction points.
・ It is a lens with excellent resolution to the periphery, but because of its large distortion and not simple shape, it cannot be perfectly corrected even with DXO (although only the person himself is concerned). Framing is also difficult. I don't think you can beat a single focus lens.
・ Because it is large and heavy, it is troublesome to take family photos other than architectural photos.

Recently, there are actually more interesting models.
Sony α7R.
I've always been waiting for a single-lens camera without a mirror. Mirrorless, created by Panasonic, was the ideal solution, actively incorporating digital correction appropriate for the digital age. However, the image quality is still inferior to a full-size SLR. And the appearance of α7R.
This model is a full-size mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera.
In other words, since there is no mirror in between, the body becomes smaller while using a 35mm full-size sensor, and the sensor and lens can be brought closer together, so a high-performance and small lens can be developed, and the price is cheaper.
The resolution of the image is equivalent to D800E.

Even more interesting is that you can install the app on the camera.
For example, if you include an application called lens correction and make presets for old lenses, even old lenses for Leica will correct various aberrations. It seems to support videos.
I am grateful to me who used Leica, and I can use the super wide-angle 12mm and 15mm lenses used for completed photos in the past.

Although this camera appeared only because it is digital, it can be said that it is a fun digital camera that is extremely analog.

BeforeI wrote that the digital camera is similar to the mechanism of the eyes, but I think that the ultimate digital camera is a camera equipped with a hemispherical sensor like the retina. I think that various corrections will be easy and a super compact and high quality camera can be made. The benefits will be more noticeable with wide-angle lenses. It is a structure closer to the body. In fact, Sony seems to have already developed it and its appearance is a pleasure.
