TWiP 434 – Photography Evolved
Last week was chock full of interesting camera announcements. Previously we continually saw incremental, albeit much needed, advancements to our favorite camera systems. Now we’re seeing completely different form factors and implementations. Companies are beginning to reimagine what a camera can do, and as such changing what kinds of photos, we as image makers, can create.
DJI surprised everyone last week with their gimbal stabilized, handheld, 4K, 12megapixel “Osmo”. And an entirely new company called “Light” has been generating huge buzz with a camera that sports “sixteen lenses” that all shoot the same image simultaneously, then using onboard computational wizardry, create a what looks to be a stunning 50+ megapixel image.
Just when you thought things were stabilizing in the mirrorless and DSLR spaces… things get shaken up, again!
