OK, so we already know that the iPhone 7 Plus will have two lense for about two hours, but now Apple shares all the details on the new iPhone seven camera and they are pretty impressive. (I am sure someone will come up with a comparisson like this soon enough).
Both the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus have 12MP cameras. The iPhone 7 has an f/1.8 lens. But the big news is that the iPhone 7 Plus will have dual lenses and two cameras behind them. A an f/1.8 Wide-angle, and an f/2.8 Telephoto. The interesting bit is that both cameras can shoot together to create a single image. That added data can be used for several rather interesting applications.
The listing, by Calkovsky Cinema Worldwide, contains well known names such as Canon, Zeiss, Schneider and Cooke. The description lists all of the lenses as tested and in “great working order”.
Mobile photography has become more popular than anybody could’ve imagine over the last few years. Instagram receives 80+ million image uploads per day, and Facebook see an insane 300 million photo uploads every single day.
But the technology of a single tiny sensor and lens is starting to hit its limit. There’s only so far you can go given the physical limitations of such a device. So, let’s add a second camera.
Taking portraits is something I really love. When there is a model available, you get a lot of freedom regarding the pose, expressions and styling. However, during my travels when I want to portray people in their authentic environment, I usually don’t get to choose a model, because it is about the people who are really living there.
Often I find it fairly difficult when I am somewhere for a few days to make a connection with the local people and portray them in a way that I want. I am sure there are more people that think the same way and are having troubles with approaching people and getting the most out of these situations. Of course you can take photos in a street photography kind of way and capture the moments just as they happen, which I love to do as well. Besides that, I really like it to have some kind of influence on the shot and the pose. This is the reason for me to challenge myself and go on a 4 days trip to Morocco.

Every now and then a new technology comes that threatens to shake the existing paradigm of how photography is done. Mirrorless has done this to a certain extent, removing a significant element form the Camera’s body. But an even bigger step would be the move to computational photography. This is where several small optical and electrical elements use an algorithm to create a photo. Lytro, of course, was a pioneer in that field, but failing to deliver I am sure many are now skeptical about the place such technologies have in the photography market.
Today, Light announced their new camera – L16 – which is claimed to deliver DSLR quality image with a smartphone form factor. The camera boasts 16 lenses of 3 focal lengths which deliver an astounding 52 megapixel image. Depth of field (or bokeh) will be set in post production.
On Vimeo, Rusty Sanoian explains that the footage was captured using the Sony A7R II in a Nauticam housing, using the Sony F4 16-35 lens, Sony 28 F2 lens with the Sony 16mm Fisheye converter and a Magic Filter.
I live in the Philippines. Not everyone here can afford going to school, let alone having a decent graduation portrait. Last month a friend contacted me and told me she was looking for a photographer for her project – free graduation pictures to the less fortunate.
When I heard about this Project I immediately contacted a photographer friend, Jay De Guzman, and my girlfriend, Jubcy Sebastian to also help out with the project.
Joining Sony’s system of over 60 lenses are the ZEISS Distagon T* FE 35mm F1.4 ZA wide angle lens, an FE 90mm F2.8 Macro G OSS lens, an FE 24-240mm F3.5-6.3 OSS hi-magnification zoom lens and an FE 28mm F2 wide angle prime lens.
The lenses are all currently listed as “New Arrival” shipping within 7-14 business days at B&H, but that is most likely a mistake as they should be available in April, July, March (in two weeks time, so this one is correct) and May, respectively.
The new α E-mount lenses are accompanied by two sets of ultra-wide and fisheye converters, one for the newly announced 28mm lens and the other for existing APS-C E-mount lenses.
Sony has also released a software update for several FE full-frame E-mount lenses that will shorten start up time.
