Photography Soup Express (Sept 26)

Welcome to the Express version of the Photography Soup. The express version is shorter than the full version :)

Around the Internets

  • Nikon D3 samples causing a sensation at DigitalReview.ca along with the smuggled images at StrongPhoto.com.
  • On the other side of the aisle, the Canon 40D gets reviewed at e-photographia.com! One of the first 40D reviews!
  • The news are streaming at the Imaging Insider. Lots of news, including a revelation on who makes the EVF for Kodak's Z812IS camera, a photographer's gear bag causes an airport kerfuffle in a small town, links to camera reviews, press releases, podcasts, and lots more!
  • Scott Kelby discusses the 100th episode of Photoshop User TV. And he has a long interactive Q&A session of his Nikon D3 hands-on experience
  • Some great pictures and great tips have been posted this week at the Digital Pro Talk blog.
  • This is an interesting astronomy cameras blog! Very nice, clean interface and compact too!


    Overheard in the dpreview forums
  • Finally we have some Sigma DP-1 "action". This forum user heard through the grapevine that a new sensor will be used in the DP-1.
  • The Olympus E3 sensor mystery continues. We may indeed have to wait until October 16 to find out! Some of the sensor candidates (speculation wise): The same sensor as the E410/E510, a Kodak Trine CCD, a beefed up version of the E410/E510 sensor, or something else.
  • Meanwhile the Nikon D3 has created a DSLR version of Beatles-mania after high ISO samples and hands-on "experiences" were posted. The DigitalReview.ca official baseball samples are discussed here. The smuggled Strong Photo images are discussed in this thread. And discussion of the Nikonwatch.com samples. And some confessions on why you are buying the D3.
  • Not to be outdone, a Nikon D300 high ISO sample is leaked as well.
  • Meanwhile, on the other side of the aisle, there is excitement over Canon 40D's AI Servo autofocus.
  • Revisiting the full frame debate, episode #4353 :)
  • The Nikon D3X does not even exist, but it doesn't stop a comparison between the D3X and the D3. And since we took a trip to SpeculationVille, how about the Nikon digital rangefinder?


    This Noisy Blog
  • Just a few hours left to vote for the next 1001 noisy Buzzzzz camera. Currently the Ricoh GX100 has a slight lead over the Canon A650-IS.
