There’s something about the sound of a camera’s shutter that speaks differently to different people. I know people who’ve even refused to use certain cameras because they hate the way it sounded when they fired a shot. For some, it’s practical reasons. If you’re shooting a wedding or other event, you usually want it to be as quiet as possible. You don’t want your camera to distract people from the main event.
According to “new sources”, Fuji Rumors are reporting that Fuji are starting to take a serious interest in video. They say that Fujifilm will launch lenses with clickless apertures sometime in 2017. These lenses will be designed for users of the Fuji X system who primarily use their cameras for video.
The fast & accurate AF of the recently released Fujifilm X-T2 as well as outstanding image quality, it has fast become a favourite for some video shooters. Having native lenses and not relying on various adapters to use other system lenses will make a big difference.
If you were the world’s most famous portrait photographer, what camera would you take on a job? If you’re Annie Leibovitz the answer is probably all.
Annie shot a “roadtrip” commercial for Lincoln Continental featuring quite a few celebs “going on a roadtrip”. Most of the movie is filled with Nikon and Hasselblads (I have no idea how many, but a lot of them), at about 1:50 you can see Annie shooting with a Sony A7-something (I think it’s the A7RII) and a Sony 24-70 F/4 lens.
Cosyspeed is a company that we like. I’ve had some close chats with the owner and his view of how a company should interact with society. They also make killer mirrorless bags (well, the bags, obviously has no mirror, they are aimed at the mirrorless cameras market).
Information about Fuji’s possible entry into the mirrorless medium format world is mostly just speculation, but it seems it’s becoming a matter of “when” rather than “if” Fuji will announce something.
The kits are designed to be an all-in-one solution for independent YouTube content creators who don’t want to have to figure out everything they need to get up and running quickly.
It seems every time a new camera is about to be released, somebody somewhere always slips up and lets content out online before they’re supposed to, although it’s rarely the manufacturer themselves.
Hasselblad are about to make a big “game changing” announcement in a few days and boy have the rumours been flying. but one theory seems to be the most likely at the moment.
Both Photo Rumors and Mirrorless Rumors are reporting that the likelihood that this will be a new high end medium format mirrorless camera, containing the same 50MP sensor as that found in their CFV-50c digital back.
Macro ring flashes can be expensive, but trying to shoot macro without external lighting of some kind can be extremely difficult. Canon are hoping to do something about this with a new EF-M f/3.5 28mm STM macro lens for Canon Mirrorless cameras, if these leaked photos are true.
Bearing a plastic mount, it seems that this lens is aimed at the entry level, those hoping to make a start on their macro journey, and is expected to have a lower price as a result when it is officially announced.
I’ve always had a lot of fun challenging myself with creative and/or technical limitations. Like giving myself a photo assignment to spend the day or even an entire vacation with a certain camera/lens combination and a limited shooting style, like to shoot only macro or only black and white, etc. It usually makes me work harder to get the shots, but more importantly, I often come home with photos I probably wouldn’t have if I had taken my best equipment and approached shooting in my usual way. And who knows, what if through an exercise of self-imposed creative or technical limitations, I accidentally “stumble on a style”?! Which is exactly what happened to me and why I’m suggesting you try it yourself!
