Digital SLR cameras ignited a revolution in photography and video production when they first hit the market, but now lighter mirrorless cameras are looking to shake up the market again. 

Jakob Schiller of Outside Magazine has a review of the new Sonly a7R II camera:

"Mirrorless cameras have been nipping at the heels of DSLRs for years now, but they hadn’t surpassed them because of their limited functionality. Something was always wrong: Maybe the focus was too slow, or maybe the mirrorless options struggled in low light. That all changed with the $3,199 Sony a7R II. This camera doesn’t just match some top-shelf DSLRs—it actually bests them.

This is the first mirrorless camera that truly challenges, and in some ways overtakes, the powerhouse DSLRs that pro outdoor shooters have relied on for years. You get the functionality of a camera like the Canon 5D Mark III packed into a significantly smaller body."

The old news mantra — if it bleeds, it leads has been replaced by if it’s gross, adios. The prospect of a news-free electorate is terrifying.


The news business is in trouble. In the past decade, more than 2400 local newspapers have closed. NBC Nightly News gets 5 million viewers per night, in a nation of 340 million people, so most people are not watching. What are they watching? Netflix.


For most of human history, people lived in a world without news. The concept simply did not exist. The idea of news is really a 19th-century phenomenon, driven first by newspapers, and then by electronic media which brought us radio, then TV and now the web. Now, it seems, we are headed back to a world without news. Not because the technology is not there, but rather because, increasingly, people are no longer interested in news, at least in the way it is packaged now.
