Recently, Fujifilm released its newest camera in the X-Pro lineup, the Fujifilm X-Pro 3. It offers a number of improvements over previous models, and also comes with a complete redesign that hasn’t been accepted entirely positively by everybody. But as part of Fuji’s X-Pro lineup, it’s a formidable camera. We took time to speak to Fujifilm at PhotoPlus 2019 to find out more about it.
Announced last week, the Rode NTG5 is the newest shotgun microphone from Rode. It’s an ultra-light short shotgun broadcast microphone designed for use on location. It offers a very unique design from Rode’s previous microphones, with an optimised pickup pattern and frequency response to offer the most directional and faithful recording possible.
We stopped by the Rode stand at PhotoPlus 2019 to find out more about the new NTG5 microphone and the advantages it offers to filmmakers and other creatives who need good audio.
A couple of big areas where users have felt Fujifilm have lacked a little in their cameras are their video capabilities and lack of in-body image stabilisation. Well, they’ve addressed both of those concerns with the new Fujifilm X-H1 in a big way. But while the X-H1 is more video-focused than previous Fujifilm cameras, it’s no slouch when it comes to stills, either, capable of shooting up to 14 frames per second. DIYP had the chance to check it out in person and have a chat with Fujifilm UK about it during The Photography Show last month.
One of the things I was most interested in checking out during The Photography Show were the new Sigma lens offerings. Those are the 105mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens, aimed primarily at portrait photographers, and the 70mm f/2.8 DG Macro Art. So, I sat down for a chat with Paul Reynolds of Sigma Imaging UK. I wanted to find out why the 70mm f/2.8 wasn’t available for Nikon, and I also hoped to get some insight on a release schedule for the new Sony E Mount versions of their existing and new prime lenses.
Everything about a wedding is important. Including how they’re documented. Whether it be through photographs or video. Coverage often begins long before the wedding itself. Telling a couple’s story leading up to the big day. Ideally, you want this story to show some of your subjects personalities and humour.
That personality and humour is exactly what the crews from Paul Seiler Photography and Jon Clark Weddings caught in this fantastic “First look” video with Tom and Beth Gardner. Filmed by videographer Jon Murray, this is certainly one they won’t forget any time soon.
