Well, it looks like the portable flash game just got a little more interesting. After a year’s worth of apparent Godox AD200 dominance, Cactus has now announced a seemingly viable competitor. The Cactus RQ250 is a 250Ws portable bare bulb strobe offering TTL, high speed sync and it fits in the palm of your hand. It also has a built-in receiver compatible with the Cactus V6II and V6IIs trigger systems.
After a few pictures leaked out yesterday and today’s earlier announcement of the Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 lens for Sony, Tamron now give us the 70-210mm F4 Di VC USD lens for Nikon and Canon DSLRs. A slightly slower, lighter weight alternative to the Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2.
Aimed at the budget conscious shooter who doesn’t need that extra stop of aperture, the new 70-210mm f/4 boasts some great performance and features to help those hoping to keep their rig fairly light.
If you’d like to pair your full-frame Sony mirrorless camera with a 28-75mm f/2 lens from Tamron, you’ll soon have a chance to do it. Tamron has announced that they are developing a fast standard zoom lens: the 28-75mm F/2.8 Di III RXD (Model A036), intended for full frame Sony E-mount cameras. They promise high-quality image, weather sealing and quiet autofocus in a lightweight lens. So let’s see the rest of the specs.
