Weekly Nikon news flash #348

→ The latest Nikon D5 rumors: the camera will have two XQD cards (I guess the previously rumored CF models were only for testing). The D5 will also have less than 15 fps rate. Another possible announcement date is the second week of February (previous rumors were pointing to a January announcement).

→ First gen Nikon D4 cameras could have compatibility issue with the new Nikkor E lenses – see this Pixelists forum post (Google translation). It seems that Nikon confirmed the issue.

→ Venus Optics Laowa 15mm macro lens review (wide angle macro, available also for Nikon F mount).

Pinout project on Indiegogo: another Bluetooth device for remote control (remote shutter release, geotagging) of DSLR cameras.

→ New Really Right Stuff FG-02 fluid-gimbal head in action.

→ More Commlite Nikon F to Sony E electronic adaptor video tests.

Nikon patent describes a way to capture steam on pictures
→ A strange new Nikon patent describes a way to capture steam on pictures:

  1. Get the image temperature distribution by the infrared thermography
  2. Measuring the temperature of the subject and the outside air temperature
  3. If there is a temperature difference, it is determined that steam and cool air is generated and the flash is triggered (or not)
