Resolution and noise test results along with specifications have been added to the Sony a7R II Review page.
 
Creating perfect apples-to-apples comparisons between different systems is very difficult and I ask you to use careful discernment as you make such comparisons. In the Sony a7R II vs. Canon EOS 5Ds R noise comparison, I see more noise in the higher resolution camera (a higher pixel density sensor showing more pixel-level noise is expected), but the difference is slight and partially due to the Canon noise details being rendered slightly sharper (sharpening the noise).
 
I don't have under and overexposed examples available for the EOS 5Ds R in the noise comparison tool (at least not yet), but do have them for the EOS 5D Mark IV. In this case, the Canon has lower pixel density (and resolution) to its pixel-level noise advantage. With that difference in mind, the a7R II vs. 5D IV comparison shows the 5D IV results having slightly less noise and less grain to the noise when exposures are pushed 3 stops. Whether the less-grain difference is positive or not is a bit of a personal preference and the processing of the RAW images may come into play here.
 
Here is the Sony a7R II vs. Canon EOS 5Ds R resolution comparison. And, here is the Sony a7R II vs. Canon EOS 5D Mark IV resolution comparison.
 
If you missed the post earlier this week, the Sony a7R II Review page has a brief discussion on the Sony RAW converter and processing settings decision process.
 
B&H has the Sony a7R II with a $300.00 rebate. As I said before, to get a huge bargain, trade in any camera or lens (even something of very low value) and get an additional $480.00 off of this camera (in addition to the trade-in value) or a significant amount off of many other Sony products.

On January 31, Triggertrap's founder Haje Jan Kamps announced in a blog post that the company will be shutting it doors in the very near future. The failure of its failed Redsnap/Ada Kickstarter campaign as well as competition from products such as the Miops Camera Triggers proved too difficult to overcome.

From the B&H YouTube Channel:
 
As many people know, our National Parks are seeing ever increasing numbers of visitors which means traffic jams, long waits, and huge crowds at the better known photo spots. The good news is that almost everyone disappears after the sunset fades. Chris and Lance are two of the five instructors that make up National Parks at Night, and they will show you how to make the most of your visit to any national park and experience them in ways that most people never do. National parks have some of the darkest skies in the country, which means they are filled with amazing views of the Milky Way.
 
Lance has been photographing at night for 30 years, and has almost 20 years experience teaching night photography, and Chris literally wrote the book on photographing national parks. Together they will share their experiences photographing the night sky in Parks like Acadia, Yosemite, Joshua Tree, Death Valley, Zion, and many others. They will also present general tips on night photography, including techniques and gear for working in natural light situations.

The GoPro Karma Quadcopter is available for preorder from B&H with an expected availability at the end of March.
 
You might remember that the GoPro Karma was announced in September of last year, released a short time later, and then quickly recalled due to power failures mid-flight. According to GoPro, the issue has been resolved in upcoming re-release of the drone.
 
One big question remains, though: Which one is better for you, the DJI Mavic Pro or the GoPro Karma?

From Lexar:
 
Doubled Capacity Allows Cinematographers, Filmmakers, and Content Creators to Capture Highest-Quality 4K Video and Beyond
 
MILPITAS, Calif., Jan. 31, 2017 – Lexar, a leading global brand of flash memory products, today announced doubled capacity for the Lexar Professional 3500x CFast 2.0 memory card, providing the capacity and speed thresholds needed for cinematographers, filmmakers, and content creators to capture the highest-quality 4K and ProRes video and RAW photos. The new 512GB capacity card is designed to address the exacting demands of today's top content innovators. The Lexar Professional 3600x CFast 2.0 card line, specifically optimized for ARRI cameras, will also double in capacity to 512GB in the first half of 2017.
 
"As professional imaging technology continues to advance, it's crucial that memory storage formats keep pace with ever-evolving data needs," said Jennifer Lee, product marketing director, Lexar. "When shooting 200 FPS on a high-end, production-level camera, it's easy to fill up an entire 256GB card with content in just 17 minutes. Comparatively, the new Professional 512GB 3500x CFast 2.0 card can capture up to more than twice that time. It's essential that professional content creators shooting in bandwidth-heavy applications such as RAW, 4K, burst-mode, time-lapse, and beyond have access to increasingly higher capacities and faster transfer speeds like those offered by the new 512GB Professional 3500x CFast 2.0 card."
 
The 512GB Professional 3500x CFast 2.0 card provides write speeds up to 445MB/s, for professionals to capture lots of footage and keep shooting. From the first take through to post-production, content innovators will have the speed and space needed to capture the highest cinema-quality video for their next masterpiece and quickly power through post-production with read transfer speeds up to 525MB/s. The Lexar Professional 3500x CFast 2.0 card includes a lifetime copy of Image Rescue software to recover most photo and select video files, even if they've been erased or the card has been corrupted.4 The card is also backed by expert technical support and a limited lifetime warranty. The new card capacity will be available in Q1 of 2017 with an MSRP of $1699.99. The Lexar Professional 3500x CFast 2.0 card line is also available in 32GB, 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB capacities. In addition, the Professional 3600x CFast 2.0 card line is available in 128GB and 256GB capacities. All Lexar products undergo extensive testing in the Lexar Quality Labs to validate performance, quality, compatibility, and reliability with more than 1,200 digital devices.
