  6. Yongnuo YN 40mm f/2.8N Announcement

    The second Yongnuo lens which is having its premiere is the YN 40mm f/2.8N model which, unlike YN 100mm f/2N, does not have its full-frame equivalent in the Nikon system. The optical system consists of 6 lenses placed in 4 groups. It is equipped with the 6-blade aperture which closes up to f/22. 1).Yongnuo YN 40mm f/2.8N The lens’ dimensions are 74x45mm, and it weighs 130g.

The optical system consists of 8 lenses placed in 6 groups. The 9-blade aperture closes up to f/19. The minimum focus distance is 90cm. 1).

  8. The design and construction of Lomography Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art bears references to the lens designed in the 19th century by Charles Chevalier, which was used to capture one of the first photographs showing a man, taken by Louis Jacques Daguerre. The lens has already been available in the company's offer for some time, in gold and black color versions. Now, the company is presenting a chrome version. 1). Lomography Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art The construction of the lens is very simple. It consists of two elements placed in only one group. Lomography Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art has the focal length of 64mm and the light f/2.9. The aperture is the ring Watehouse system, which is rarely used nowadays. 2). Lomography Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art Of course, the lens doesn't have autofocus. Its minimum focus distance is 0.5m. The lens makes it possible to mount filters with the diameter of 40.5mm. 3). Lomography Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art Lomography Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art Lens is already available on sale, with Nikon F and Canon EF mounts. The lens costs $499.

  12. Nikon AF-P Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6E ED VR is a long-awaited successor of a popular full-frame zoom Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G VR from 2006. The optical system of the new lens consists of 18 elements placed in 14 groups. Among them we will find one ED lens, whose task is to efficiently reduce chromatic aberration. The system is stabilized and, as the producer promises, the VR system's effectiveness will be around 4.5 EV. Image stabilization has two modes of work: normal and sports. 1). Nikon AF-P Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6E ED VR The autofocus has also undergone substantial changes. The new Nikon zoom uses a more advanced step motor (marked by the letter P), which is supposed to be quiet, precise and fast. The minimum focus distance is 47" (1.2m). Inside the new lens, we will also find a 9-blade electromagnetic aperture which is to guarantee stable, automatic exposure adjustment – also during fast continuous shooting. 2). Nikon AF-P Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6E ED VR Construction Nikon AF-P Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6E ED VR is more compact than its predecessor. The new construction's dimensions are 5 3/4in (146 x 81mm) and it weighs 680g. The lens is sealed and resistant to weather conditions. This may be of special importance while photographing outside. Unfortunately, we don't know when the new lens is going to appear on sale, but we know its price. Nikon AF-P Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6E ED VR will cost $700, which is a very attractive price since it is only $200 more expensive than its predecessor. And, as we already know, Nikon can surprise us when it comes to this aspect... Below is the official press release:
  13. Leica TL2 Announcement

    Leica TL2 is the next version of Leica T (type 701) which was presented in the middle of 2014. The camera has been equipped with a new improved 24Mp CMOS sensor, which is 8Mp bigger than its predecessor. What's more, the sensor is supported by a newer generation processor Maestro II, thanks to which the camera should be faster and more efficient. The ISO range is 100-5000, which is a huge improvement when compared to the predecessor which enabled us to take photographs with the maximum ISO sensitivity of 12500. It is also worth mentioning that the new Leica camera gives a possibility of recording films in 4K, with the maximum speed of 30f/s. 1). Leica TL2 When it comes to shutter speed, in the new model it enables us to take photographs with the speed of 7f/s, and if we use the electronic shutter – up to 20f/s. The autofocus is based on contrast detection and has 49 AF points. In the newest model, it is supposed to adjust focus with the speed up to 165m/s. 2). Leica TL2 When it comes to design, the new camera is slightly different than its predecessor. The whole back panel is 3.7'' LCD touch screen, without any buttons. TL2 also has a more profiled handle, which should influence the handle's reliability in a positive way. The camera's menu has also undergone some changes – it is supposed to be more user-friendly now. In addition, Leica TL2 has 32GB of built-in memory. 3). Leica TL2 The camera presented today is already available on sale in two color versions: silver and black. This model will cost $2000.
  14. Canon EOS 200D Announcement

    The next camera presented by Canon is EOS 200D – a much-awaited EOS 100D's successor. The new version, similarly to its predecessor, is an ultra-compact reflex camera, which weighs merely 453g. Yet, as for a budget camera, it's pretty well-equipped. The main element of the camera is CMOS (APS-C) sensor, with the resolution of 24Mp (its predecessor had 18 Mp). The sensor is supported by the latest generation DIGIC 7 processor, whose function is to, among other things, improve the overall efficiency of the camera. The camera enables us to shoot photographs within the ISO range of 100-25600, which can be extended to 51200. The new Canon makes it possible to take photographs with the speed of 5f/s (single mode) or 3.5f/s (continuous mode). 1). Canon EOS 200D The autofocus, Dual Pixel AF, is known from other newest models and it combines phase and contrast detection. However, this is not the same version which was used in the higher-level models, since in the new 200D we only have 9 AF points to choose from. When it comes to film-making functions, as we could have expected, we do not have a possibility of recording films in 4K, but only in Full HD (60f/s). 2). Canon EOS 200D What's more, the camera is equipped with a 3'' touch screen (fully swiveling and rotating), with the resolution of 1.040.000 points. We can also connect the camera with mobile devices, via Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth. 3). Canon EOS 200D Canon EOS 200D should appear on sale in August 2017 in two color versions – black and silver. It will cost around $550 (for the body) or around $700 (in the set with 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens).
