Sad as I am to say it, it looks like optical viewfinders are history.
DSLRs are history as well.

The electronic view finder's on the new Canon's are made by Sony. :wink:

Re: New Canon R cameras etc

There are reports that in video mode the camera overheats after 20 minutes in 8K EAW or HEVC. If you shut the camera off for 10 minutes to cool down then you only get 3 more minuets of 8K.

What I'd give now for some Group B rallycross instead of an event that looks and feels like a computer game.

Re: First Show on July 18

No matter what social distancing procedures have been put in place, isn't this considered a mass gathering which under current Covid-19 restrictions should not take place.?

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

The UK's coronavirus alert level has been downgraded from four to three.

Under level three, the virus is now considered to be "in general circulation" and there could be a "gradual relaxation of restrictions".

Previously transmission was considered "high or rising exponentially".
