We’ve seen some interesting uses of AI so far, and the latest prototype software launched by Nvidia could be of great help to many artists. It can turn your crude sketches into pretty realistic landscapes in a matter of a click.
Originally reported as just a weekend sale, it appears this deal might actually be a little more long term. Nikon previously bundled the FTZ F Mount to Z Mount adapter with their Z6 and Z7 mirrorless cameras as a promotional bundle offering $100 discount as a package. Now the FTZ adapter is included with the purchase of either camera completely free.
Since the Loupedeck’s reinvention of the Loupedeck into the Loupedeck+ the support for software besides Lightroom has been expanding nicely. At launch, it offered integration with Capture One and Aurora HDR. This was then extended to include Photoshop, as well as breaking into video editing with Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects.
Now Loupedeck has announced a couple more software integrations, adding another video editor, Final Cut Pro, and taking the leap into audio with Adobe Audition.
Launched in 2017, the $1,000 Profoto A1 was a pretty unique design amongst speedlights. Finally, the world had a round head speedlight – something that many photographers had been asking for, for at least the last couple of decades. Now, Godox is getting ready to start shipping their new V1 round head speedlight, launched at Photokina 2018. But Profoto calls foul play.
According to Fotosidan, Profoto is accusing Godox of intellectual property theft, specifically patent infringement, with the design of the Profoto A1. And they’re threatening to sue if Godox doesn’t pull the unit immediately.
It’s been rumoured, hinted and hoped that IBIS would be coming to the Canon EOS R mirrorless lineup at some point, and now Canon Image Communication Business Operations Group Executive, Yoshiyuki Mizoguchi, has confirmed that IBIS is is something they’re working on for future models in an interview with Amateur Photographer at CP+ 2019.
They’ve also reaffirmed Canon’s decision to not kill off the EOS M mirrorless system or mount. The M mount will be for lightweight APS-C cameras and lenses, while the RF will be for their full frame mirrorless system.
After a pretty abysmal launch, the RED Hydrogen One had one possible saving grace that might help see it succeed and allow RED to redeem themselves in the eyes of their customers. Not to mention the entire smartphone-buying public. That one thing was its expandability. Modules that allow the user to enhance the functionality of the device.
Now, RED seems to have silently scrapped those modules, including the camera module, after removing all traces of them from the Hydrogen One website. The change was spotted by Reddit user ReipasTietokonePoku, where it sparked off quite the discussion between owners of the phone.
While Nikon’s lens roadmap is pretty clear, their intentions for future bodies isn’t, really. But Nikon has suggested that a lower entry level full frame mirrorless camera to compete with Canon’s recently announced EOS RP would be on the way. Now it looks like we might have the first leaked photo of that body, and it appears to have a name. The Nikon Z1.
In December 2018, drone sightings shut down Gatwick Airport in London and left more than 100,000 passengers stranded. Three months after this major incident, the UK government has decided to expand drone no-fly zones around all major airports. From now on, instead of 0.6 miles (1km), it will be illegal to fly a drone within 3 miles (5km) around airports.
This is likely one of those future-proofing things that we often see manufacturers put into their hardware. Like the 2TB microSD card limit on many Android smartphones, even though 1TB cards were only just recently announced and aren’t quite available yet. But Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 670, 675, 710, 845 and 855 models all seem to support a somewhat insane 192-megapixel camera sensor.
