  1. We've known for a few months that Nikon has been working on the eye AF function, but a few days ago this function became widely available thanks to the firmware update to 2.0. The function works both in the case of AF-S measurement and AF-C measurement. In the case of detecting eyes of many people, one can use the multi-function selector or additional selector and choose the eye on which the focus should be adjusted. What's more, Nikon has increased the sensitivity of the whole AF system to the value of -2 EV in Z 7, and to the value of -3,5 EV in Z 6. Another novelty is individual exposition measurement for full frame, conducted in a quick continuous shooting series. Online materials which are available up to this point present very positive opinions about eye AF in the AF-S mode. Unfortunately, this function works much worse in the case of the autofocus in the AF-C mode. Still, Nikon deserves recognition since it managed to implement this function to the first series of mirrorless cameras (it seems, a bit under the pressure of users) although it wasn't its plan during the premieres of Z 6 and Z 7. You can download firmware v2.0 for the Z6 and Z7, head on over to the Nikon Download Center.
  2. The latest Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L USM lens will be a perfect reason to choose mirrorless cameras of this producer for many professionals. It seems the lens, announced not so long ago, will be a great choice. The optical system is based on 13 lenses placed in 9 groups, in which we will find both apsherical lenses, and the UD element, which is to guarantee perfect resolution within the whole frame. The producer boasts that it is the lens of the highest resolution within the RF series. The Blue Spectrum Refractive Optics technology, which is supposed to limit chromatic aberration almost to zero, has been applied in the lens. We also have ASC coatings (AIr Sphere Coating), which limit light leaks and flares. 1). Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L USM The 9-blade aperture can be closed up to f/16. The minimum focus distance is 85mm. The autofocus is an almost silent USM motor which, in connection with the Dual Pixel AF system and eye detection, is to ensure perfect performance. 2). Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L USM Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L USM has been fully sealed and it offers the function ring to which we can assign specific camera functions, similarly to other RF constructions. The lens enables mounting 82mm filters, it has the dimensions of 117 × 103mm and it weighs 1195g. The lens will appear on the market in June and it will cost $2,699.
  3. The Sony system users will get yet another lens which will become an interesting alternative for expensive systemic lenses of this producer. Tokina FíRIN 100mm f/2.8 FE AF Macro is a lens which will interest both the macro and portrait lovers. Tokina FíRIN 100mm f/2.8 FE AF Macro has been built on the basis of 9 lenses placed in 8 groups, among which two are aspherical elements and three - low-dispersion elements. In addition, there are advanced anti-reflective coatings. This all should translate to high resolution and contrast of the provided image. The 9-blade aperture, which can be closed up to the value of f/32, has been applied in the lens, 1). Tokina FíRIN 100mm f/2.8 FE AF Macro The lens is equipped with an ultrasonic autofocus motor, which enables the minimum focus distance of 30 cm and the reproduction ratio of 1:1. The lens is made of metal and it's relatively light - it weighs 507g. Its dimensions are 74 × 123mm. The lens will cost $600.

  11. Sony has announced two new external mobile SSD discs, which are supposed to meet high requirements concerning resistance to damage. The discs will be sold in two versions. The cheaper compact version will be marked as SL-C and a bit bigger, more effective version will be marked as SL-M. The discs will be resistant to the compression forces up to 6 tons and bending forces up to 2 tons. What’s more, the disc is resistant to falls from 3 meters and it is also waterproof. The devices will be made of aluminum and sold with a set of stickers (which will enable their identification) as well as anti-slip rubber strips. SL-M will enable transfers at the level of 1000MB/s, whereas the SL-C series is to offer the speed of read-write speed at the level of 520-540 MB/s. As one could easily notice, the differences in the speed are almost twofold. 1). Sony SL-M with Accessories The discs will also have hardware encryption of data with the use of the 256-bit AES key, password protection and the Lifetime Checker tool, which will enable checking the state of the data carrier. In addition, the SSD Utility application will make it possible to install the updates which will introduce potential corrections and will improve the work of the disc. The discs will appear on sale in autumn 2019 in the versions with the capacities of 500GB, 1TB and 2TB. The price is not known yet but one may expect that these will not be cheap devices.
  12. Lumix G95 (also known as the G90 and G91 outside North America) is a successor of G85, which has become a synonym of a camera which combines compact size, advanced photography and film-making functions and affordable price. G95 is continuing this tradition and it additionally offers a more advanced ergonomics as well as advanced video functions, thanks to which it may become a very popular model among the film-making beginners. Panasonic Lumix G95 is equipped with the 20MP Live MOS sensor with the 5-axis stabilization system, which enables work within the ISO range of 200-25600. The camera makes it possible to take photographs with the maximum speed of 9f/s. 1). Panasonic Lumix G95 + Lumix G Vario 12-60 f/3.5-5.6 Power I.O.S. When it comes to the autofocus, the camera is equipped with the 49-point AF system based on phase-detection technology, Depth From Defocus, known from other models. The autofocus is supported by new algorithms which have also been used in latest S1 and S1R models and which are to improve work in low light, by offering the effectiveness of up to -4 EV. We also have the eye and face detection systems. 2). Panasonic Lumix G95 + Lumix G Vario 12-60 f/3.5-5.6 Power I.O.S. The camera offers above-average (for this segment) video functions. Although the general specification of the film mode basically remains unchanged (maximum resolution of 4K 30f/s, 100Mb/s, crop 1,25×), it is worth noting the default flat V-Log profile function, which should enable obtaining the dynamic range of up to 12 EV. In this case, it will be the 8-bit 4:2:0 save, but during work with an external recorder, we may achieve the 4:2:2 sampling. In addition, we will also get a possibility of recording Full HD films with the speed of up to 120f/s, thanks to which we may obtain attractive materials in slow motion. Typically, we will also have additional photography functions based on the film mode, such as 4K Photo, Post Focus or Focus Stacking. 3). Panasonic Lumix G95 + Lumix G Vario 12-60 f/3.5-5.6 Power I.O.S. Lumix G95 is a bit bigger and heavier than G85 and it weighs 536g. The camera's body is partially made of magnesium alloys and it is sealed. The camera is equipped with the 3'' rotating touch screen (1,240,000 points) and physical ISO, white balance and exposition compensation buttons, similarly to S1 and S1R models, which should enable faster and more convenient work. Besides that, it should also increase the number of available programmable buttons. When it comes to the viewfinder, it is still the same system with the resolution of 2,36MP. A battery grip, which will hold two additional batteries, can also be attached to the camera. 4). Panasonic Lumix G95 + Lumix G Vario 12-60 f/3.5-5.6 Power I.O.S. Lumix G95 will appear on the market in May and it will cost $900 or $1200 in a set with the 12-60 f/3.5-5.6 Power OIS lens.

  15. Profoto Connect is a trigger which has been designed having in mind the photographers who have just started their work with flash and who value minimalism. Profoto Connect does not have any buttons - only a rotating body which makes it possible to set the trigger in two positions: Auto and Manual. In the Auto mode, as you might guess, the trigger will set all of the parameters of the manual flash, based on the TTL measurement, and the selected exposition parameters. In the Manual mode, the parameters can be set manually with the use of a mobile application which is, unfortunately, only available for the iOS system as for now. According to the producer's specification, the device will serve 8 channels and offer the range up to 300m. The in-built rechargeable battery is supposed to enable 30 hours of continuous work.
