Weekend Round Up of News and Cool Web Videos

This is Friday post to wrap up things I wanted to share with you in terms of news and cool videos I have seen on the web. Take some time to check it out and then pack up to go home and relax. Tomorrow you can go out shooting and have some fun with your photography.

News

Tokina and Tamron

It has taken them long enough to make up their minds about this, or so it would seem as we don’t know what happens behind the scenes, but Tamron and Tokina have joined the Micro Four Thirds group with includes Olympus, Panasonic and Sigma. You can find out more about it here. Seems Mirrorless is something everyone wants to be a part of now.

Pentax

Pentax have just released a new compact camera, the Option VS20. It is not the 16mp sensor or 20x zoom that makes it exciting. It is the fact that the camera has two shutter buttons, one of which is on its side, like a vertical grip is on a DSLR. How cool is that. Check it out here.

Kenko

This is not as hot off the press as it could be, but Kenko have announced a 400mm f/8 Mirror lens for mirrorless cameras. This could be fun to see. How many of you know what a mirror lens is? Would you like us to do an article about them for you?
