On this “We Shoot Mirrorless” podcast episode, Scott and Marco discuss these new products and mirrorless topics:

  • Scott returned from a workshop in Arizona and shares some AF tips for bird photography.
  • A bit of feedback from NAB
  • Sony introduces a new flagship mirrorless camera. The a9 is aimed at the pro sports photography market and has some impressive specs, but is that enough to win the pro market? We share our thoughts about it.
  • Sony introduces the new FE 100-400mm f4.5 - 5.6 GM OSS lens.
  • Fuji announced two new lenses for its GFX 50s mirrorless medium format camera. The GF 23mm f4 WR and GF 100mm f2 WR will ship in late June 2017.
  • Fuji also announced a new GF lens roadmap with a GF 45mm f2.8 WR for late 2017 and a telephoto prime as well as a teleconverter for 2018. The GFX will also receive a FW update to improve AF in difficult lighting situations and improve exposure compensation options.
  • Olympus introduced firmware updates for the E-M1 Mark II, E-M5 Mark II and PEN-F as well as some updates for lenses.
  • Panasonic also offers a FW update (v1.1) for the GH5 and introduced the Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 8-18mm f2.8-4 ASPH lens.
  • Ricoh showed off a 4K-capable Theta 360° camera at NAB that allows for live streaming as well as a 4-channel mic to record surround audio.
  • Listener Laurence asked which mirrorless camera works best for indoor sports with fast moving action and bad light?
  • We have a We Shoot Mirrorless group at Flickr (click link) that is open to our listeners and photos taken with all mirrorless camera brands. If you want to join just let us know through the "request invitation" button on the group and drop us a quick line there. We'll add you to the group then. And please ask for the invite via the web browser and not via the Flickr App. The invite process via the app has not been working reliably.

Please support our show by using our B&H affiliate link (click here) that will not cost you a penny more than when you are buying at B&H without our link. And the more this link will be used to buy at B&H, the more giveaways we’ll be able to give back to our listeners through B&H. It really is a “win-win” situation :)

Please share this podcast with your friends and subscribe via iTunes. We would also love to get your feedback. Is there anything that you want us to cover on the show in the future? And we would appreciate if you could take a short moment to rate or post a quick review about our shows on iTunes.
