Camera Price Charts Episode IV – Fixed Lens Cameras with RAW

We conclude this round of Price Charts by taking a look at Fixed Lens digital cameras that support RAW out of the box, with sensor sizes ranging from 1/2.x” to 35mm full frame. In the previous installments, we covered a snapshot of the prices of 35mm Full Frame Digital Cameras, and then APS-C dSLRs and Mirrorless cameras.

Camera Price Charts Episode III – It’s a Mirrorless World

We continue this mid-November 2015 Price Charts series with Mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras. Rangefinders are not included in this since they are their own category and their prices are in the stratosphere and they are already included in Episode #1, 35mm Full Frame Digital Cameras. Then in Episode II, we took a look at the prices of APS-C dSLRs.

Camera Price Charts Episode II: APS-C dSLRs – We Still Exist

In Episode #1, we looked at the prices of 35mm Full Frame Digital Cameras. In this episode, we focus on the APS-C dSLRs. As you can see by comparing to the December 2014 edition, the number of APS-C dSLRs has slightly decreased, partially because of full frame expansion and partially because of mirrorless expansion.

Camera Price Charts Episode I: Fascinating – the Full Frame Price Gap of 2014 is Filled with most of the 2015 new releases

One of the most procrastinated posts perhaps in the history of this blog is finally here! The November 2015 edition of the Camera Price Charts. In this series, we take a snapshot of camera prices, and navel-gaze at the data and patterns that emerge. We start with the 35mm full frame digital cameras (DSLRs, mirrorless, rangefinders, fixed lens)…

New Cameras and Lenses in 2015 (only serious or interesting)

This reference post is a summary of new cameras and new lenses [these two links jump DIRECTLY to the new gear listings below)], featuring only serious and/or interesting products (judgment call; please feel free to make a case for/against specific products). Unlike before, this will NOT cover every single freaking camera squirted out of a marketing department’s twisted pretzel logic 😉 The exact format will develop over time as very few new products have been announced so far in 2015.

Latest Update: 2015 is over, this post covers 2015 cameras only… For newer cameras, check the New Cameras and Lenses of 2016 reference page…

New WordPress Theme Installed

Something looks different on the website today? YES! We switched the main blog to a slightly different theme. Back when we switched to responsive themes last Spring, this blog was supposed to get eventually upgraded from the Genesis Sample Theme to one of their Premium themes. Well, it happened tonight 🙂

The main menu moved to the top of the page, so when you mouse-over, the various menu options don’t cover as much of the readable part of the text. More tweaks and changes will happen going forward (hopefully they won’t take as long!).

If you have any feedback, suggestions, corrections, errors or problems, please let us know using the contact form (it also shows a direct email address there) or leave a comment below.

Coming SOON here (to the Main Blog)
Speaking of slow moving things, the next main blog project is a new edition of the “Camera Price Charts”. The last time we did this was December 2014, so this could make for an interesting comparison with nine months in-between.

Another thing that should get done in the next couple of weeks is an update to the Trade Show Calendar with 2016 events.

If you have any other reference type projects you want to see here, please let us know using the contact form (it also shows a direct email address there) or leave a comment below.

New WordPress Responsive Theme Installed

UPDATE (MAY 18 in 2015): Something looks different? YES!!! After a month, I finally replaced the mega-font-bold-o-sprawling default 2015 WordPress Theme with a more suitable one! This will be adjusted in the next few days and evolve as this main blog evolves. This is a simple self-explanatory theme, but if you have any questions or feedback, please feel free to leave a comment or use the online contact form or le Twitter.

In parallel, we also updated the WordPress Theme of the Camera Deals blog to something even more compact and readable.

Both of these themes are responsive, so they will adjust depending on your device, the device orientation, and the viewport size (eg when you adjust the browser window size on a desktop or laptop or some tablets/smartphones).

The rest after the jump is OLD NEWS, it refers to the previous Theme Change, and is kept only for historical reasons!

Trade Show Calendar updated with 2016 Events

This is a quick alert for those of you following the updates via RSS or web notifiers or e-mail. We finally have something on this blog that is completed ahead of schedule 🙂 The Trade Show Calendar has now been updated with the 2016 trade shows. All except a couple of Fall 2016 events have posted their schedules. Sadly a couple more trade shows are no longer with us or they merged with other trade shows.

The previous years are also kept there, page further down to find them. I am keeping the format organized in ascending calendar year order. There are trade-offs to switching to reverse timeline per year or rolling reserve timeline, but all the trade shows operate on an annual basis, so this format seems to be the more natural. If not, let us know (see next paragraph)…

If there are any Trade Shows missing or any errors/corrections/etc, please let us know using the online contact form or leave a comment.
