  • The Increased Risk of Lasers for Mirrorless Cameras
    by Nando Harmsen on January 16, 2019 at 12:04 am

    I have been shooting concerts for many years. These are mostly bands in small, dark, and obscure venues with not much light to work with. But eventually a lot of bands started to use lasers as a part of their show. That resulted once in a damaged sensor. I believe today there is a greater risk with mirrorless cameras and lasers.

    on January 15, 2019 at 7:39 pm

    Sony has announced two major firmware updates for the a9 alongside updates for the a7R III and a7 III. The a9 updates adds a range of features, including improved tracking in both stills and video, as well as extending Eye AF to animals, something Sony teased at Photokina back in September. The a7R III and a7 III will also gain the improved Eye-AF and animal Eye AF, as well as time-lapse capabilities. The a9 firmware will be coming in two waves: version 5.0 will be available in March while version 6.0 is slated for 'summer.' Firmware version 3.0 for the a7 III and a7R III will arrive in April. Sony a9 improvements The nitty gritty of the the a9 updates center on autofocus and usability improvements. Interestingly, there's no mention of adding Log capability to the a9's video, which is a shame, given it has such fast readout and minimal rolling shutter. Firmware version 5.0 will bring about a new 'Real-time Tracking mode,' which uses Sony's latest subject recognition algorithm. The […]

  • Sony announces a6400 midrange APS-C mirrorless camera with advanced AF
    on January 15, 2019 at 6:51 pm

    Sony has announced the a6400, an updated 24.2MP mirrorless camera with a flip-up rear touchscreen and the processor and autofocus system 'borrowed from the a9'. In many respects the camera resembles an a6300 with a more powerful processor, enhanced autofocus and a more extensively articulated touchscreen, but launched at a slightly lower cost. It also adds the time-lapse function that was lost when Sony moved away from offering in-camera apps. Like previous models it can shoot at up to 11 fps or 8 fps in silent shutter mode, both with full autofocus and exposure capability, but not live view. Enhanced AF Most of the enhancements come in the form of autofocus improvements that have been developed for the a9. These include increased speed along with the enhanced 'real-time tracking' and animal Eye AF coming to the a9 pro-level sports camera this Spring and Summer. (Note that animal Eye AF won't be available on the a6400 until this summer.) Like recent APS-C Sony models it has 425 phase […]

    Nothing beats seeing your photography come to life in the form of a large print. For photographers such as Nigel Danson, it is an important part of the photographic process; it's the tangible result of a lot of hard work. When discussing megapixels of cameras, the topic of print size often comes up. "How big can you print from camera X?" In his own version of this test, Danson headed out into the field to capture some morning landscape images with a Fujifilm X-T3, Nikon Z7 and Fujifilm GFX 50R. The X-T3 is an APS-C camera with a...

  • Proposed rule changes would make it easier for drones to fly at night, above crowds
    on January 15, 2019 at 2:38 pm

    Despite a partial government shutdown in the United States, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao announced a new proposed rule that would simplify the process of flying drones at night and over crowds of people by removing the need for waivers. The proposed rule, which can be read as a draft (PDF), would remove the need for commercial drone operators to file for waivers granting them permission to fly both at night and over large gatherings of people. It would also drones to have 'an anti-collision light illuminated and visible for at least 3 statute miles, according to the document proposal. 'This will help communities reap the considerable economic benefits of this growing industry, and help our country remain a global technology leader,' said Chao in her statement to the nonprofit Transportation Research Board. DJI chimed in on the proposed rule change with a blog post on its website that begins by stating: DJI, the world’s leader in civilian drones and aerial imaging […]

  • SmugMug Films: An inspiring BTS look at photographing the autumn beauty of Slovenia
    on January 15, 2019 at 12:59 am

    SmugMug Films has released 'Framing the Journey,' a short film that follows photographer Karen Hutton around the landscapes and cityscapes of Slovenia. The seven minute film, which was made in partnership with Fujifilm, 'unveils both the epic beauty of a charming country tucked between Italy and Croatia and the wonder of the artist experiencing it all for the first time.' Hutton, whose past careers have included acting, singing, voiceover work, figure skating and horseback riding, says her 'photography is about a philosophy [...] It’s about the world, about life, and all the possibilities that exist in between.' The short film does a great job highlighting the fantastic work of Hutton and showcasing the seemingly endless beauty across Slovenia. Sure it's effectively a glorified ad for both SmugMug and Fujifilm (as well as DJI whose Mavic Pro 2 drone was used to capture much of the 4K footage), but that doesn't take away from the inspiring and informative narration provided by […]

The value of photography can be further obscured by a need for likes or the anonymity of hurtful criticism. Perhaps it's time to spend more time thinking about the good that photography can do.  [More... […]

The zoom lens design had been developed in cooperation with CorePhotonics and used a 90-degree angular prism to direct the light to a vertically positioned stabilized camera sensor. The prototype never made it into a production series but now it seems OPPO is going to skip the 5x zoom entirely and make a direct jump to a device with a 10x zoom lens that is based on the same principles. The company is currently sending out media invites for the presentation of a 10x lossless zoom solution in Beijing, China, on January 16. OPPO/CorePhotonics 5x optical zoom design According to Chinese sources it is not clear if OPPO will present a production device or yet another prototype. In any case it looks like we'll see zoom factors on smartphone cameras grow rapidly in the near future. […]

  • 100MP+ and IBIS Coming to a Canon EOS R Camera: Report

    Canon’s $2,299 30MP EOS R was its first full-frame mirrorless camera, but it has long been reported that it’s a middle-tier camera and that entry-level and pro-grade models are on the way. Rumors are now heating up that Canon has a 100-megapixel EOS R camera in the works — one that packs in-body image stabilization. […]

  • Miami Beach police use camera blimp to get around drone surveillance ban
    on January 14, 2019 at 4:37 pm

    The Miami Beach Police Department found a loophole to circumvent Florida's 2015 ban on police drone surveillance — a tethered, relatively immobile blimp with a camera attached to the underside. Officially called a 'tethered aerostat,' the helium-filled vehicle was used to monitor the approximately 15,000 people who attended the Capital One Beach Bash over the New Year's holiday. In 2015, Florida passed the Freedom From Unwanted Surveillance Act, which banned the use of drones for police surveillance. In a letter to the city commission on January 3, City Manager Jimmy Morales explained the police department's use of the camera blimp, citing necessity due in part to 'the legal restrictions on police departments under Florida law and because of limited battery life and flight time' associated with drones.

  • Nikon Z6 Review
    on January 14, 2019 at 2:58 pm

    88%Overall scoreJump to conclusion The Nikon Z6 is one of two full-frame mirrorless cameras introduced by Nikon in August of 2018. It's very similar to its big brother, the Z7, with the main differences being the sensor (24MP vs 46MP) and the decrease in resolution that comes along with it. The Z6 also has fewer phase-detect autofocus points (273 vs 493) due to the lower-res sensor. Otherwise, you're getting the same rugged body, the same (mostly) familiar controls and access to a small but soon-to-grow collection of Z-mount lenses. Specs aside, the Z6 is for a very different audience than the Z7. The latter is for those seeking ultra-high resolution and would also be considering cameras like the Sony a7R III and Nikon D850. The Z6, on the other hand, is intended to be be more appealing to those looking to upgrade from crop-sensor cameras or previous-generation full-frame DSLRs. The Z6 will ultimately be compared to its DSLR sibling, the D750 (which is getting on in years, but still […]

  • Man v Dust: video highlights trials of Leica’s in-house sensor cleaning service
    on January 12, 2019 at 1:35 pm

    The International Leica Society has posted a video of a camera sensor being cleaned at the Leica service centre in the Wetzlar factory in Germany. The video, taken by member Hari Subramanyam on his iPhone, shows the process of checking for dust on the sensor of his M (Typ 240) and then its removal. Well, that was what it was supposed to show, but after 20 minutes and 25 seconds the video finishes with the dust victorious and the Leica service engineer frustrated and wishing he wasn’t being recorded. The engineer starts by cleaning the mount of the camera before using a vacuum cleaner to suck dust and debris from the shutter blades. Once that is done the in-camera dust checking function is used to detect a number of dust spots. The rubber-on-a-stick Pentax Sensor Cleaning kit is used to remove the dust as the engineer explains the process needs patience and can take anything from ten minutes to an hour. We don’t get to see the sensor finally dust-free, as it takes a few […]

  • Indemnis Nexus parachute for DJI drones is first to achieve crowd safety standard
    on January 11, 2019 at 6:53 pm

    Indemnis has announced its Nexus parachute system designed for DJI drones is the first to be certified as compliant with the ASTM F3322-18 standard. The system is designed to prevent a faulty DJI drone from free-falling to the ground by deploying a small parachute, which slows the drone's descent for a safer, more gentle landing. Both the US and UK require drone operators to get permission before operating a small UAV (sUAV) above a crowd, a limitation that intends to protect innocent bystanders from injury in the event of a drone crash. Waivers are offered on a case-by-case basis by both the US's FAA and the UK's CAA, but require operators to show how people below will be protected if the drone experiences a failure mid-flight. The FAA granted its first waiver in October 2017, when it gave CNN permission to fly a Vantage Robotics Snap drone featuring protective rotor cages over a group of people. A parachute system like the Indemnis Nexus offers a different type of protection, one […]

  • Photo gallery: The Sony FE 24mm F1.4GM goes to Sedona
    on January 11, 2019 at 2:00 pm

    The Sony 24mm F1.4 GM is an impressively compact, high quality lens. In fact, it earned our 2018 DPReview annual award for best prime lens, when we described it as follows: "It's uncannily sharp edge-to-edge wide open with little to no coma, bokeh is smooth, and longitudinal chromatic aberration - that purple and green fringing we loathe on many fast wide primes - is well controlled." Yep, good things do come in small packages. So, when I had the chance to shoot with it in beautiful Sedona, Arizona, I jumped at the opportunity. I was curious to see how it performed in comparison to other prime 24 mm lenses. Click through the gallery to see the photos I shot with this outstanding lens. Want to learn more about this lens?

    on January 10, 2019 at 8:27 pm

    The Canon Sure Shot Delsol used solar panels on its front cover to power some of the camera's functions. Solar power drove the AF system, the electro-magnetic shutter unit, film advance and even the flash. A secondary lithium battery was used as a back-up. C1995 Canon has proudly announced it ranked third in the world for the number of patents awarded to it by the US Patents Office during 2018. The company is quite used to being at the top of the table though, and has managed to remain in the top five every year for the last 33 – since 1985.

Canon explains in a statement that the US is an important market not only for its products but also for its technologies.

    Where zoom lenses offer obvious focal length versatility, primes lenses are known for bringing the ultimate image quality to a desired focal length. They're also generally brighter in maximum aperture than comparable zooms, and often lighter as well (though certainly not always!). From landscape work to architecture, and from portraiture to sports, good prime lenses can be found in any enthusiast or professional bag, and are often the mainstay or "go-to" lens for photographers in their chosen field.

    Ted Forbes of The Art of Photography recently sent his old Sony NEX-7 camera into Sony and had them convert it into a full-spectrum camera. This means that Sony removed the infrared and low-pass filters from the camera's image sensor, which allows the camera to record light beyond the visible spectrum. You can limit the light by using filters in front of your lens. In Forbes' case, he uses a 720nm infrared filter so that his camera saw only infrared light. The end result are very neat and distinct images. In the video below, we... (read more) […]

    by jgray@imaging-resource.com on January 8, 2019 at 4:00 pm

    With a simple tripod plate on your camera, it is a breeze to capture sharp images in a landscape orientation. However, as soon as you want to rotate your camera and capture shots with a portrait orientation, you run into issues. While it's typically possible to manipulate the tripod such that you can shoot vertical images, it may require adjusting the height of the tripod legs to have a level horizon or it may make your entire setup unstable.

  • Nikon reaffirms their desire to be a video camera company with appealing Z6 Filmmaker’s Kit
    by jgray@imaging-resource.com on January 8, 2019 at 2:01 am

    Nikon has, for many years, lightly danced around the idea that their cameras could, or should, be used to create high-end video. Though there was no reason they could not have been used for it, the cameras up until the release of the Nikon Z6 simply lacked the power or the features to really be a great video camera. They could work in a pinch, but they were rarely a professional's go-to. Nikon looks like they want that attitude to change, first by giving the Z6 some serious video chops (and the quality of the footage looks stellar)... (read more) […]
