Leica, legendary for its analog film cameras, has lately championed virtual controls in its mirrorless cameras, with minimalist physical controls. It has its fan base and, in an age when camera design has sometimes taken a turn for the worse, has continued to bring us cameras with exceptionally clean lines and pleasant proportions: Form follows function.When the SL2 mirrorless camera was introduced back in November, it was targeted to professional photographers and, to underscore its seriousness to that market segment, made a promise with conscience. Crafted with conscienceThe SL2 is the only mirrorless camera designed and crafted in Germany, with an unmatched all metal solid construction and elegant leather wrap to withstand the time and deliver years of photographic pleasure, thanks to the sustainability guaranteed by consistent firmware updates.Although Leica listed multishot mode in its specs, it was not able to deliver that feature back in November, and projected that feature would be available in 2020. Today, it has delivered on that promise.With Multishot the user can create photos with a resolution up to 187M: One photo will be taken at normal resolution (47MP), and one at high resolution (187MP). In Multishot mode, IBIS is disabled and electronic shutter is used.Multishot• With Multishot the user can create photos with a resolution up to 187MP.• One photo will be taken at normal resolution (47MP) and one at high resolution (187MP).Improvement on the Video Menu GUI• In the submenus of the video mode, a white highlighted header shows that the user operates in video mode.Improvement on the AF field size setting• The AF-field size can be changed with a long tap without moving the AF field.SD-Card naming• After formatting the SD-Card, the card will be named with “Leica SL2”.Detection of M lenses6-bit coded M lenses will be recognized at all time with the M-Adapter L.Elimination of artifacts on very fast continuous shootingIn the drive mode “Continous – Very High Speed” there were artifacts in the DNG under certain settings, which have now been removed.Correction of the focus distance value of feetThe focus distance on the top display has been corrected and now shows the correct values.Connectivity enhancements with App and Image ShuttleGeneral improvements for a faster and more stable connection between camera and smartphone or computer.SIGMA 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS | ContemporarySIGMA Corporation is pleased to announce the SIGMA 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS | Contemporary.A remarkable optical performance and a full range of functionalities in a compact body for exceptional lightweight shooting.

The 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 Di III RXD is for Sony full-frame E-mount mirrorless cameras.The 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 Di III RXD is 117mm (4.6 ) long with a Φ74mm diameter (accepting Φ67mm filters), and weighs 575g (20.3oz).Press ReleaseTamron announces launch of the world’s first*1 all-in-one zoom lens starting at F2.8 for Sony E-mount full-frame mirrorless cameras28-200mm F/2.8-5.6 Di III RXD (Model A071)June 11, 2020, Saitama, Japan–Tamron Co., Ltd. (President CEO: Shiro Ajisaka), a leading manufacturer of optics for diverse applications, announces the launch of the 28-200mm F/2.8-5.6 Di III RXD (Model A071), an all-in-one zoom lens for Sony E-mount full-frame mirrorless cameras on June 25, 2020. However, due to the spread of COVID-19, the release date or the product supply schedule could be delayed.In 1992, Tamron demonstrated breakthrough innovation with the release of the AF 28-200mm F/3.8-5.6 Aspherical (Model 71D), a compact and lightweight all-in-one zoom lens. The amazingly compact size, light weight and reasonable price immediately became wildly popular with photographers around the world. In the years since, Tamron has been a pioneer in releasing epoch-making all-in-one zooms tailored to each era, including the recent 18-400mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD (Model B028) that boasts the world’s highest*2 magnification of 22.2x and which currently enjoys robust sales. The new 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 is a distillation of all Tamron’s accumulated all-in-one zoom expertise, and has been specifically developed as an all-in-one zoom for daily use on a full-frame mirrorless camera. Tamron chose Model A071 as the model name in a nod to “71” representing the world’s original all-in-one zoom.The 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 is the first all-in-one-zoom in the world to achieve a maximum aperture of F2.8 at the 28mm wide-angle end. To assure superb optical performance, it features a precise arrangement of special lens elements that accommodate the increasingly high resolutions of today’s digital cameras. Enabling high quality image rendering throughout the zoom range, the lens responds to users’ photographic expressions in powerful style. Moreover, with its 117mm (4.6 in) length, 575g (20.3 oz) weight and filter diameter of a mere 67mm, the 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 offers excellent portability. When combined with a compact, lightweight full-frame mirrorless camera, it allows photographers to capture virtually every scene they encounter in daily use, travel, sports and nature.The 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 takes the convenience of an all-in-one zoom (which incorporates various angles of view from wide to telephoto in a single lens) and adds a fast-maximum aperture of F2.8 and superb image quality to enhance the potential for photographic applications. Breaking conventional limitations and broadening the horizons of photographic possibilities, this zoom lens writes a new chapter in the history of the all-in-one zoom lens.Model A071June 25, 2020*Due to the spread of COVID-19, the release date or the product supply schedule could be delayed. Many street photographers have made the Ricoh GR III compact/fixed-lens camera their camera of choice for unobstrusive street photography. Compact, lightweight and all-black, it appeared non-threatening to subjects who may cringe at a huge camera pointed at them besides being also a really good camera. The GR III was announced September 25, 2018 and eventually launched February 21, 2019.The RICOH GR III Street Edition Special Limited Kit may be a bit less unobstrusive, sporting an orange-yellow lens barrel ring. The kit includes two items: an external detachable viewfinder (with the number 28 imprinted on its top panel to highlight the camera s angle of view) and a genuine-leather hand strap with matching orange-yellow stopper.PRESS RELEASERicoh launches RICOH GR III Street Edition Special Limited KitLimited-quantity package featuring high-end digital compact camera with a stylish metallic gray body and exclusive accessoriesRICOH GR III Street Edition Special Limited KitPARSIPPANY, N.J., June 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ Ricoh Imaging Americas Corporation today announced the launch of the RICOH GR III Street Edition Special Limited Kit. Available in a limited quantity of 3,500 units worldwide, the kit combines the RICOH GR III camera body, finished in a metallic gray color, with a compact, detachable viewfinder and a genuine-leather hand strap, both designed exclusively for this package.Offering the same high image quality as the standard RICOH GR III, the small, lightweight camera body has been treated with a metallic gray finish designed to appeal to a street photographer, evoking the asphalt pavement in the city. The finish features an elegantly grained texture that is smooth in appearance but helps improve camera grip. It s accentuated with an orange-yellow lens barrel ring, reminiscent of traffic lines painted on streets.In addition to the camera, the kit includes a pair of exclusive accessories: a compact, detachable viewfinder featuring the identical metallic gray finish and a genuine-leather hand strap. The viewfinder has the number 28 imprinted on its top panel to highlight the camera s angle of view, while the strap s stopper is finished in orange-yellow identical to the camera s lens barrel ring.This camera allows the photographer to instantly activate the Full Press Snap feature* with a single touch on the LCD panel. This feature shifts the lens to a preselected focal point the moment the shutter release button is fully pressed. It can also be assigned to the LCD screen, assuring the photographer of flawless point-and-shoot photography to capture once-in-a-lifetime shutter opportunities. One of the strong points of the GR series, this feature comes in handy when taking snapshots on the street and will be available in the standard GR III via a firmware update that is scheduled for release later this year.The RICOH GR III Street Edition, a high-grade digital compact camera that doesn t include the viewfinder and the strap, is also scheduled to be launched in the autumn of 2020.Pricing and AvailabilityThe RICOH GR III Street Edition Special Limited Kit will be available mid-July at as well as at select Ricoh Imaging-authorized retail outlets nationwide for a manufacturer s suggested retail price of US $1199.95.

In this podcast/video interview by Frederick Van Johnson (photographer, podcaster, marketer, and founder of “This Week in Photo aka TWiP”), she recounts how she got bitten by the photography bug, enrolled into photography school, taught herself (what the school did not teach) in the gym, and shares that she shoots more bad shots than good ones.She started with the camera she could afford: a Nikon D5000 APS-C DSLR, then upgraded to a full-frame Nikon DSLR for the higher ISO capability, and eventually switched (her word, not mine) to a mirrorless, the switch to mirrorless being the greatest (as in best ) investment she made in her sports photography.She tries SO HARD not to mention the mirrorless camera brand, but credits the amazing autofocus, like it recognizes the face, it recognizes the eye. I can just press the button and basically tell my camera, Look, I want you to follow this athlete, and I m pressing a button and as long as I don t release it, it s gonna follow the ahthlete wherever he or she goes in the gym. It s amazing and the autofocus s been a big game-changer for me. Also, the ISO quality or the ISO capability are even better than my DSLR full-frame If I go up to 12,800, there s no noise at all. [What better ad can a camera get from a pro photographer!]Eventually, Frederick (what a smooth talker, you) at the 20:20 mark gets her to admit she switched ( I made the big leap ) to the Sony full-frame mirrorless and only shoots with basically two fast prime lenses: the 55mm F1.8 on one camera, and the 135mm F1.8 (her all-time favorite lens) on a second camera. In confined spaces, she will switch to the 28mm F2 (?) lens.She can easily shoot between 2000 to 4000 images at an event, which is an insane number of images to download to your computer. So, following the lead of photojournalists, she uses Photo Mechanic to quickly import the images from her memory cards onto her computer, checking off the ones she likes, then going through those selections and paring the good ones further. Then, it s on to Photoshop Camera RAW for editing. The magic happens when she creates a look for this specific day/event/local on Luminar, then runs the best (500 or so) images through that filter and let Luminar s AI engine do its magic. She sells her images/services two ways. She zips her pictures and transfers them to the gym or to the organizer of an event, and gets paid for the day s work. Or, she sells the images directly to the athlete by uploading the images to Pixieset. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected her business (most lucrative season is summer), so she is now writing articles on Photofocus, as well as doing tutorials, videos and podcasts.

In addition, Firmware Update 0.1.24 for the XCD 45P lens brings improved stability of auto focus and manual focus, and now allows Focus Bracketing to be enabled on all X System cameras and 907X Special Edition cameras.PRESS RELEASEGothenburg, Sweden 4 June 2020HASSELBLAD BRINGS POWERFUL UPDATES FOR EXPANDED CREATIVITY TO X1D II 50C, 907X SPECIAL EDITION AND XCD 45PIntroducing its largest firmware update to any Hasselblad camera at one time, Hasselblad launches Firmware Update 1.2.0 for both X1D II 50C and 907X Special Edition medium format cameras, in addition to Firmware Update 0.1.24 for the XCD 45P lens. A multitude of powerful features are added to the X1D II 50C and 907X Special Edition, including 2.7K/29.97 Video Recording, Focus Bracketing with all XCD lenses, Image Rating for simple image sorting and selection, White Balance Picker Tool, and more, resulting in further enhanced digital medium format camera systems that provide a wider breadth of creative possibilities. With the latest update to XCD 45P, Focus Bracketing can now be enabled on all X System cameras and 907X Special Edition cameras in addition to improved stability of auto focus and manual focus. Constantly striving to improve its camera systems with new updates and enhanced features, Hasselblad is determined to create even more powerful medium format shooting experiences for all types of visual artists.FIRMWARE UPDATE 1.2.0NEW FEATURES FOR BOTH X1D II 50C AND 907X SPECIAL EDITION• Video Recording: Expanding the imaging options of the X1D II 50C and 907X Special Edition, 2.7K (2720 x 1530) HD (1920 x 1080) video capture has been added. Video can be recorded at 29.97 fps with 4:2:0 8-bit colour. The 2.7K resolution option delivers improved capture of detail, whilst balancing the storage space.• Focus Bracketing: Expanding the feature set of the X1D II 50C and 907X Special Edition even further, Focus Bracketing allows a photographer trying to capture a subject with very limited depth of field, such as in macro or product photography, to capture a series of exposures of their chosen subject at a fractionally different focus point in each and then combine these captures in their chosen stacking software. The photographer will have full control over the number of frames in the sequence, the step size between each capture and an initial delay to allow any support system vibration to diminish. Note: Requires lens firmware 0.5.33 or later for all XCD lenses excluding XCD 45P. XCD 45P requires firmware 0.1.24 or later.• Image Rating: Image Rating can now be applied to all still image captures in camera, making image sorting and selection much easier when the captures are transferred to the user’s computer system. When in image playback mode, with the capture details overlay on screen, the photographer simply presses the star button or presses the displayed stars. All ratings are stored in the metadata of the captured image.• 2/3 stops added in Exposure Bracketing: The Exposure Bracketing function step options have been expanded to support 2/3 stops steps in addition to the existing steps.• Expanded White Balance Tools: The menu organization and selection of White Balance presets has been improved with display of colour temperature and tint at each setting. For the most precise colour, a Picker has also been added where the photographer can sample a neutral portion of the image to balance colour.• Auto White Balance based on captured image: Auto White Balance is now based on the captured image which means that AWB can also be used when shooting in Manual Quick Mode (Manual Quick Mode specific to X1D II 50C only). It also solves the issue when working with flash in tungsten lighting where, previously, the correct white balance showed in either Live View or the captured image – now the correct white balance is present in both Live View and the final still image.• New language: Traditional Chinese has been added to language options.FIRMWARE UPDATE 1.2.0NEW FEATURES SPECIFIC TO X1D II 50C • EVF proximity sensor settings: It is now possible for users to adjust the sensitivity of the EVF proximity sensor. The improved setting accommodates users whose typical handling style does not always engage the sensor or prefer to disable the EVF completely.• Reset custom buttons option: A menu option has been added that will allow the custom buttons to be returned to factory defaults.FIRMWARE UPDATE 1.2.0NEW FEATURES SPECIFIC TO CFV II 50C DIGITAL BACK IN 907X SPECIAL EDITION• Additional camera support: Cable-free operation with CFV II 50C Digital Back on 2000-cameras and unmodified 200-cameras added. Note: some cameras may not fully work due to mechanical tolerances of old cameras.• Auto White Balance: It is now possible to automatically set White Balance for captured images. FIRMWARE UPDATE 0.1.24 FOR XCD 45P• Support for Focus Bracketing: Focus Bracketing is now available on the X1D II 50C and the 907X Special Edition. Firmware update 0.1.24 enables Focus Bracketing to be used on the XCD 45P.• Improved stability of AF MF: Full time Manual focus input sensitivity has been modified, to reduce the possibility of AF stopping when holding the lens.Download Firmware Update 1.2.0 for X1D II 50C and 907X Special Edition in addition to Firmware Update 0.1.24 for XCD 45P and release notes for full details here.
