  • Open letter to Panasonic: Innovations in manual focus could make Lumix S a winner for cinematographers
    on February 17, 2019 at 2:00 pm

    Jack Lam is a cinematographer based in Beijing and Hong Kong. His body of work includes TV commercials, seasonal TV drama series and theatrical feature films. His commercial clients include Cathay Pacific, Lenovo, Airbnb, Alibaba, and Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group. He also works with DJI as a design consultant for their cinema products. This guest editorial has been lightly edited for style and clarity. As a working cinematographer, I am super excited by Panasonic’s announcement of the Lumix S mirrorless camera system. The Panasonic GH5 is so well-designed, it has become a reliable workhorse for many video shooters. I have no doubt a full-frame version of it will be amazing, and everything I read about the S1/S1R confirms that. However, Lumix S has the potential to become much greater that what we see in this product launch. With this brand new camera system, Panasonic has a unique opportunity to create the perfect small camera system for professional cinematographers. But doing […]

  • Where are you, E-M5 Mark III?
    by jgray@imaging-resource.com on February 17, 2019 at 11:41 am

    It was love at first sight. My parents gave me an Olympus 35mm Pen in high school, and I just couldn't believe that a roll of 35mm film could even fit in there. I carried that little guy with me everywhere I went. But it wasn't until I joined the ranks of Imaging Resource in 2012 that I met the newer digital generation of Pen cameras, and it only rekindled that original love affair with wonderfully compact Olympus products. But even that was nothing compared to how excited I got when I first met the OM-D line. Still small enough,... (read more) […]

  • Swiss lens manufacturer Irix is expanding into the Japanese market
    on February 16, 2019 at 5:08 pm

    Lens manufacturer Irix has announced it's expanding its presence into the Japanese market. Founded in Switzerland in 2016 by an international team of professional photographers, Irix quickly expanded into all areas of the European market and beyond, creating unique and affordable lenses, filters and accessories for photographers around the globe.

  • Sigma has done more for enthusiast APS-C than Nikon, Canon and Sony combined
    on February 16, 2019 at 2:00 pm

    There's no reason APS-C can't be a good enthusiast format, with the right lenses. Full-frame is being touted as the future of enthusiast as well as professional photography. But I’d argue that APS-C is still a highly capable format and one that makes sense for a lot of people. That could be true for an even broader group if it was properly supported as an enthusiast format. And, I’d contest, one company has consistently done more to support the big brand's users than the camera makers themselves. The past few years have seen a wave of full-frame launches and, from the original EOS 5D through to the Sony a7 series and EOS RP, the falling prices of full-frame cameras have made them accessible to an ever-wider number of people. This focus on relatively profitable models (and lenses) is only likely to continue as the camera market contracts back to catering for a core of dedicated photographers, rather than trying to sell to everyone. But what does this mean for APS-C? While […]

  • Slideshow: International Garden Photographer of the Year Winners
    on February 15, 2019 at 9:19 pm

    International Garden Photographer of the Year Winners 'Fireworks' by Jill Welham | IGPOTY The winning photographs from the International Garden Photographer of the Year Competition 12 have been announced, with the top prize going to photographer Jill Welham of North Yorkshire, England for the above photograph titled 'Fireworks' that was submitted under the Abstract category. Passionate about the cyanotype print process, 'Fireworks' showcases the details of three Allium heads created using a wet cyanotype process. 'This image of three Allium heads was created using a technique known as wet cyanotype. Two chemicals, ammonium citrate and potassium ferricyanide, are mixed together to create a photosensitive solution which is painted onto the surface of watercolour paper and left to dry,' says Welham in the image's description. 'This process needs to be conducted away from UV light, and once dry the paper must be kept in a light-proof bag until it is used.' In addition to Welham's […]

  • Kosmo Foto launches Mono 120 black-and-white film, now available for pre-order
    on February 15, 2019 at 8:54 pm

    Kosmo Foto has launched pre-orders for its Mono film in 120 format, adding the new product alongside the 35mm version launched in 2017. According to the company, the first batch of Mono 120 has entered production and will be sold exclusively through the Kosmo Foto shop. Future batches of the film will be available through Kosmo's retailers and distributors, as well. In its announcement today, the company explained: Mono has proven to be really popular with film photographers – it’s now stocked in photography shops all over the world, and been bought by photographers from Greenland to Greece and Costa Rica to the Czech Republic. Not everyone, however, shoots 35mm film. The resurgence that film has enjoyed over the last few years has also seen many people shooting on medium format cameras from humble Holgas through to Hasselblads. So Kosmo Foto is very pleased to be able to say that Kosmo Foto Mono 120 is now available to pre-order. According to Kosmo Foto, Mono features a […]

  • This website uses AI to generate portraits of people who don't actually exist
    on February 15, 2019 at 7:01 pm

    A new website called This Person Does Not Exist went viral this week, and it has one simple function: displaying a portrait of a random person each time the page is refreshed. The website is pointless at first glance, but there's a secret behind its seemingly endless stream of images. According to a Facebook post detailing the website, the images are generated using a generative adversarial networks (GANs) algorithm. In December, NVIDIA published research detailing the use of style-based GANs (StyleGAN) to generate very realistic portraits of people who don't exist. The same technology is powering This Person Does Not Exist, which was created by Uber software engineer Phillip Wang to 'raise some public awareness for this technology.' In his Facebook post, Wang said: Faces are most salient to our cognition, so I've decided to put that specific pretrained model up. Their research group have also included pretrained models for cats, cars, and bedrooms in their repository that you can […]

    For photographers interested in long exposure photography, neutral density filters are a very useful accessory. However, as photographer Attilio Ruffo shows in his latest video, they are not always necessary. Photography is an expensive hobby as it is, so it makes sense to not buy new accessories and equipment unless you are sure they'll benefit your photography.

  • NASA Curiosity rover captures 360 panorama from its Vera Rubin Ridge 'Rock Hall' drill site
    on February 14, 2019 at 8:01 pm

    Last month, NASA announced that Curiosity rover had wrapped up its work at Mars' Vera Rubin Ridge and would be making its way to a clay-rich region near the Red Planet's Mt. Sharp for additional work. In an update on that mission last week, the space agency shared a panoramic image captured by Curiosity's MastCam at the ridge drill site before it left, as well as an interactive video of the area. Curiosity's last drill site on the ridge is known as 'Rock Hall,' and it's located relatively close to the 'clay-bearing unit' that researchers will study next. A panorama from the Rock Hall location was created using images captured by the rover before it departed the site. NASA also published a 360-degree video from the images and annotated a few landmarks in it, including Mt. Sharp in the distance. Visible near Mt. Sharp is the clay-rich region, now called 'Glen Torridon,' where Curiosity will help researchers uncover more details about Mars' landscape and history. The rover is equipped […]

  • Canon EOS RP shooting experience: better than the specs suggest
    on February 14, 2019 at 3:00 pm

    The EOS RP combines a large sensor, simple interface and excellent JPEG color, making it easy to shoot in even the most unexpected situation.24-105mm F4L IS | F4.5 | 1/80sec | ISO 3200 I got a chance to shoot with the EOS RP just before its launch and my impression is that it's a much better, and potentially more significant, camera than its specifications reveal. If you've only seen the specs, it'd be easy to dismiss the RP out-of-hand. The sensor from the 6D Mark II isn't going to go down as one of Canon's better efforts: 1080 video and fairly limited dynamic range rather undermine the considerable appeal of Dual Pixel AF. Surely if it's just that old chip, in the midst of a stripped-down version of the slightly underwhelming EOS R body, it's not even worth taking seriously?

  • Pixelmator Pro 1.3.1 released with Portrait Masks for images captured in iPhone Portrait mode
    on February 14, 2019 at 2:57 pm

    Image editing app Pixelmator Pro has been updated to version 1.3.1, gaining Portrait Masks for images taken using the iPhone's Portrait mode in iOS 12. With Portrait Masks, any iPhone Portrait mode imported into Pixelmator Pro is automatically opened with a layer mask made from the depth data. The new feature makes it possible to rapidly isolate the portrait's foreground from the background, enabling users to replace the background or make other quick adjustments. Pixelmator demonstrated the feature in the video above. In addition to the Portrait Masks feature, Pixelmator Pro 1.3.1 adds new keyboard shortcuts for duplicating layers, organizing content, making selections, and more. As well, the editor now uses tabs by default. Finally, the update also adds a new 'Comics' effect under Stylize for applying a comic book style to images. The update's full changelog is available here. Pixelmator Pro can be purchased from the Mac App Store for $39.99. […]

  • Canon shows forthcoming RF lenses including radical 70-200mm F2.8 IS
    on February 14, 2019 at 2:30 pm

    Introduction Alongside the EOS RP, Canon has announced the next six lenses it plans to introduce for its RF mount. Don't be fooled by the timing: although they are being announced with the RP most of these lenses are not being targeted at entry-level or even mass-market customers. Canon has already said it's working on a full frame mirrorless camera aimed at professionals, and most of today's development announcements make clear it intends to have appropriate lenses ready to suit it. All six lenses will be formally launched by the end of 2019, the company says. Details are pretty scant right now (technically Canon is only announcing its intention to develop these lenses), but mockups of all six were on show at the pre-launch RP event. RF 70-200mm F2.8L IS USM To us the most exciting lens to be revealed is the RF 70-200mm F2.8L IS. Part of our excitement is that a 70-200mm F2.8 is one of the workhorses of any system. Pros and enthusiasts use these lenses for a whole range of shooting […]

    Fujifilm has announced the new X-T30, the successor to the X-T20 mirrorless camera and the “little sibling” to the X-T3 (with which it shares many common features and specs). Inside the X-T30 is a 26.1-megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS sensor, up from 24.3MP in the X-T20, with an ISO range of 160-12800 (expandable to 80-51200). Backed […]

  • Fujifilm X-T30 review in progress
    on February 14, 2019 at 5:16 am

    Fujifilm's new X-T30 brings much of the feature set of the high-end X-T3 at a more reasonable price. If that sounds familiar, it's because the relationship between the X-T20 and X-T2 was the same. With the X-T30 you receive the same 26MP sensor and processor as the X-T3, a more advanced AF system (which the X-T3 will soon gain via firmware update,) plenty of direct controls and a tilting touchscreen, all in a smaller body. The X-T30 also comes at a significantly lower price than the X-T3, with the body priced at $899, versus $1499 for the X-T3. We'll discuss what features are cut in order to make the X-T30 the less expensive of the two options a bit later in this article.

  • Fujifilm announces the FinePix XP140, its latest ruggedized point-and-shoot
    on February 14, 2019 at 5:00 am

    Fujifilm has announced the impending release of the FinePix XP140, its latest rugged point-and-shoot that adds new automated features and improved durability against the elements. The compact camera is waterproof to 25m / 82ft, shockproof up to 1.75m / 5.9ft, freeze-proof to -10°C / 14ºF and dustproof. Compared to its predecessor, the XP130, this is an improved waterproof depth of 5m / 17ft, with all of the other stats staying more or less the same. The XP140 also includes a more pronounced grip for better handling in rough environments. At the heart of the XP140 is the 16.4 megapixel 1/2.3-inch backside illuminated (BSI) CMOS sensor with a maximum sensitivity of ISO 12800, a stop higher than the XP130. In front of the sensor is an optically stabilized Fujinon 5x optical zoom lens that starts at 28mm (35mm equivalent). With Fujifilm's Digital Zoom technology, the camera reaches 10x zoom.

  • Fujifilm X-T30 offers most of the X-T3's feature set for $900
    on February 14, 2019 at 5:00 am

    Fujifilm has unveiled the X-T30, its latest APS-C mirrorless camera. The X-T30 provides many of the features found in the higher-end X-T3, including its 26.1MP X-Trans sensor and X-Processor 4 Quad Core-CPU, along with some autofocus improvements that will come to the X-T3 later via a firmware update. The X-T30 offers a hybrid AF system with 425 points across the entire frame, and boasts faster face detection compared to its X-T20 predecessor. Eye detection AF can be used in AF-C mode, and phase detection AF is now usable in lower light conditions.
