Will this be the LAST Nikon DSLR I ever own? Could it be the last PRO Nikon I ever own as well? This is a video that discusses the future of the DSLR as well as calls out what I am personally looking for in a PRO camera at this point.

Will I switch to Sony or Canon? Or will I end up staying right where I am with Nikon because I already have a ton of glass? I guess only time will tell.

This Week, Nikon has a “service advisory” aka a recall on the Nikon Z6 and Z7 for faulty VR functions.  I checked all of our cameras here and non of them need to be sent back in.

The US Government warns that “DRONES” may be collecting date and sending it back to CHINA.

And finally, PEAK Designs has released a new tri-pod that is one of the smallest and lightest tripods out there.  Is it worth the hefty price tag over competitors that are half the price?

Welcome back to another Rapid Fire Website Critique. This time around I spent a lot of time critiquing the photos on the site. There were for one, WAY TOO MANY. There definitely were some super solid keepers, but mixed in were some images that were very snapshotty. It’s those snapshotty pictures you MUST get rid of on your site because they simply do not look professional.

I really like what this photographer had to say on their about page. It made me feel a connection, calm and that I should consider hiring them.

This week Nikon stuck back at Sony….. kinda.  They released their attempt at Eye-Af and we put it through its paces.  Adobe sends out weird emails about people being sued.  DJI stuck a dagger in the side of GoPro. And finally, if this Canon rumor is true, there’s a 90D that’s stacked, coming soon.

We were lucky enough to get our hands on a Nikon Z6 a week early with the latest firmware that brings EYE-AF. As you know, I love taking the cameras into Real World situations to test them out. That’s exactly what we did this time around with our model.

Download the Firmware for the Z6 and Z7 right here.

Not only did I do regular hand held shooting with the Nikon Z6. But I also broke out the Sony a7 III and Canon EOS R, which both have eye-af. On top of the hand held shooting, we set up all three cameras with their respective 70-200 2.8’s and Atomos recorders. The Atomos’ allow us to record our EVF and share with you a first person look inside the camera.

I was honestly expecting the Nikon eye-af to suck…… but it didn’t. It’s not on par with the Sony but it’s certainly not the worst in the world. It has a long way to go though to catch up to Sony.

With the release of the new Sony Firmware 5.0 for the a9, you probably should never miss focus again. Of course, you can still miss focus, but the new Sony firmware does make getting hard to capture action in focus time and time again.

Hockey is one of the hardest sports to photograph, that’s why I took the Sony a9 with firmware 5.0 out to a Flyers vs Carolina Hurricanes game to see how it would do. The new firmware allows me to focus on composition and the action more so then moving points around and missing the shots.
