Canon's EOS Ra Camera Is Aimed At Astrophotographers

Now, if astrophotography is your kind of thing, then you might be interested to learn that Canon has quietly announced their latest camera in the form of the EOS Ra. As its name implies, this is part of Canon’s new EOS R series of mirrorless cameras, except that this camera has been specially created for astrophotography.

This is thanks to the use of a specially designed IR filter that allows four times as much transmission of the 656nm wavelength, thus opening up the camera’s potential for astrophotography. According to Canon, “This allows for a higher transmission of deep red infrared rays emitted by nebulae, without requiring any other specialized optics or accessories.”

At CEATEC 2019, we spotted the Olympus ORBEYE, a powerful medical camera that is powered by Sony Camera sensors, some of them small enough to fit in our phones.

Nikon's New Z50 Is A More Affordable Mirrorless Camera

When Nikon announced their new Z-series of mirrorless cameras, it was the company’s attempt at trying their hand at mirrorless cameras again. So far, based on the reviews, the company seems to have gotten it right. However, these new cameras aren’t exactly what we would consider to be cheap, but the good news is that Nikon has something a bit more affordable for you.

Following the rumors that Nikon could have a new cheaper mirrorless camera in the works, the company has since officially confirmed it by announcing the Nikon Z50. As expected, this will be part of Nikon’s Z-series of mirrorless cameras and instead of a full-frame mirrorless camera, it will use an APS-C sensor, which we reckon is probably more than sufficient for most photographers, unless you’re a professional or have a need to go full-frame.

Last year, Nikon launched the Z6 and Z7 mirrorless cameras. In case you didn’t know, these are the first full-frame mirrorless cameras from the company, who in the past have typically launched mirrorless cameras in the APS-C format. However, in case you don’t need a full-frame camera, you could be in luck.

According to a report from Nikon Rumors, they have heard that Nikon could actually have a new APS-C camera in the works called the Nikon Z50. As we said, this is not the first time Nikon has launched an APS-C camera, but this will be a first for the Z-series of cameras which is Nikon’s new lineup of mirrorless cameras.

There will also be support for continuous shooting of up to speeds of 6 fps. Similar to the design of other Fujifilm cameras, the X-A7 will favor the use of external dials where there will be a dial on the top that lets users swap between the various shooting modes.

Panasonic Lumix S1h Mirrorless Camera Launched

Panasonic Lumix S1H Mirrorless Camera Launched

When it comes to video recording, Panasonic’s Lumix GH5 was actually one of the more highly-rated cameras around, but it has been a while since the camera was launched. If you’re looking for a new camera that is designed for videography in mind, then Panasonic might have something new for you in the form of the Lumix S1H.

This is a full-frame mirrorless camera that comes with a 24MP similar to its predecessor, the Lumix S1. However, there is a difference and that the S1H actually features an anti-aliasing filter that will help reduce moire. There is also in-body image stabilization, meaning that photographer and videographers won’t need to look for specific image-stabilized lens in order to achieve a smooth and steady shot.

A rumor from earlier this year seemed to suggest that Canon could have a “pro” grade camera of its EOS R mirrorless lineup in the works.

The camera in question is rumored to be known as the Canon EOS R L, with the L apparently standing for “landscape”, suggesting that this camera could be aimed at those who enjoy shooting landscape photographs – basically photographs that might not necessarily have a lot of movement and could benefit from things like long exposure and whatnot.
