Nikon’s new MIRRORLESS wide angle ZOOM! Nikkor 14-30mm f/4 S



Views:16208|Rating:4.38|View Time:9:56Minutes|Likes:504|Dislikes:71
Today Nikon announced the new Nikkor Z 14-30mm f/4 S ultra-wide zoom lens.

As the latest addition to the Nikon Z System of mirrorless cameras, they announced the new ultra-wide zoom lens at CES today. This lens looks amazing. As the Nikon Z system was announced and released over the last few months, one of the glaring missing lenses is a wide angle. As Nikon have announced the lens roadmap over the next 2 years, its nice to see them staying on schedule. I really do think this lens will be the highlight of the system.

• Z-Mount, FX Format
• 14 Elements in 12 Groups
• 4 Aspherical Elements
• 4 ED Elements
• 11″ / 28 cm Minimum Focus Distance
• Nano Crystal, Fluorine & Super Integrated Coatings
• Stepping Motor Autofocus Drive
• Programmable Control Ring
• 7 Blade, rounded diaphragm
• f/4 to f/22 aperture range

What is the photographers intention?



Views:31598|Rating:4.92|View Time:15:1Minutes|Likes:1604|Dislikes:26
Intention is the point of all photography. How do you intend for your work to look? The intention of the photographer starts with the idea, concept and composition of the image and its carried all the way through to the final printed work. Photography today has changed in some ways because we tend to publish our work for screen-based devices, but the intention of the photographer – or your intent shouldn’t be sacrificed.

William Eggleston, Ernst Haas, Luigi Ghirri and Saul Leiter were all color photographers with different styles and different looks to their work. They represent the best photographers of their time. Yet they all shot on Kodachrome. So why does their work look vastly different from one another yet they were using the same film stock? The answer is in the intent. Each had a unique intention to how their work would look, what it would say and how it would communicate to the viewer. The answer is in the printing stage of photography. This is where decisions were made that created unique works.

Fujifilm X-T3 :: Hands on Review



Views:38428|Rating:4.70|View Time:14:57Minutes|Likes:1250|Dislikes:80
The Fujifilm X-T3 is a powerhouse mirrorless camera featuring up to 30 frames per second burst rate shooting and internal 10-bit video at 4:2:0.

Get your’s at B&H
Amazon

Fujifilm released the X-T3 this year as the successor to the popular X-T2. This is a massive upgrade for both stills and video. The X-T2 was a fantastic camera, but had some limitations in terms of power management. You really did need to purchase the battery grip to enable faster burst rate shooting as well as video recording time and overall performance. The grip allowed the camera to use 3 batteries at once.

The Fujifilm X-T3 represents an optimized rethinking of the X-T2. In addition to the brand new, back-side illuminated X-Trans 4 sensor and X Processor, the firmware in the camera has been redesigned as well and you actually get more features than the X-T2 and you can access everything to its fullest potential without having to use the optional battery grip.

For shooting stills, the camera now features burst-rate speeds up to 30 fps (with electronic shutter). Autofocus also got a major upgrade with phase detection AF points added across the entire frame.

Video is now 10-bit and will record at 4:2:0 internal or 4:2:2 external via the HDMI port. The camera will shoot in f-log as well adding a tremendous amount of flexibility in post production color grading. Future firmware updates will include a HLG (hybrid log gamma) profile as well.

And the best part – the Fujifilm X-T3 is actually cheaper than the X-T2 was when it was released. This is an affordable powerhouse of a camera and the best to date in the Fujifilm ecosystem.

Fujifilm X-T3 features:
• 26 megapixel APS-C X-Trans BSI CMOS 4 Sensor
• X-Processor 4 with Quad CPU
• 1080p and 4k UHD video up to 60p
• F-log gamma and 10-bit Output
• 2.16 million phase-detection autofocus points
• 0.75x 3.69 million dot OLED viewfinder
• 3 inch, 1.04 million dot, tilting LCD touchscreen
• Extended ISO 80-51200
• Burst rate shooting speeds up to 30 frams per second

Metering for Night Photography



Views:224752|Rating:3.75|View Time:12:30Minutes|Likes:1171|Dislikes:390
We’ve done several videos on metering now and I will link to those for further information below. Today we’re talking about some techniques for metering night scenes. Shooting at night is one of the things I’ve found that camera metering systems have the most difficulty with. The dynamic range is often beyond the capabilities of digital sensors and film both so it does present a very challenging situation. You’re eye is typically your best tool and you need to pay very careful attention to what kind of exposure you’re trying to get. We’ll cover a few techniques in this video and look at some examples.

Color Photographs From 1907 :: Autochrome and Pictorialism



Views:78144|Rating:4.90|View Time:16:36Minutes|Likes:1492|Dislikes:29
Autochrome Lumière was one of the first commercially available color processes. There were earlier processes, but Autochrome was very refined and “realistic” for the technology at the time. Using grains made of potato starch, these grains produced a 3 color space of Orange, Green and Violet to reproduce color.

In the early years, Pictorialists embraced Autochrome and were fascinated by its results. But quickly, pictorialists rejected it because of its mechanica, “pre-made”l process and lack of hand control over the chemicals and techniques involved.

Autochrome was produced until the 1940’s, but its early years were the most interesting and prolific among photographers in the art world.

The first photograph ever is a heliograph made by Nicéphor Niépce in 1825 of a rooftop in France. Its an extremely early example and the oldest surviving object in the history of photography.

Despite my close relationship with this photograph, I have never actually seen it in person – until now.

Come along to Austin Texas and see the earliest surviving photograph in history.

Sony SENSOR hack – seeing light differently



Views:5874|Rating:4.85|View Time:12:26Minutes|Likes:467|Dislikes:14
I recently had my Sony NEX 7 modified as a full-spectrum camera. Essentially this means the sensor will recognize the visual spectrum in addition to Ultra-violet and Infrared light.

By using various filters on the lens, you can achieve some interesting results by limiting the light spectrum for both photography and video.

This weekend I’m going on another Sony trip to shoot some astro photography with Stan Moniz. Make sure you check out his channel and subscribe!

$2,000 camera with 16 LENSES?!? Photography with the Light L16



Views:138811|Rating:4.79|View Time:14:57Minutes|Likes:2525|Dislikes:110
This is my long awaited review of the Light L16. Announced 2 years ago it is finally out. The Light L16 combines 16 lenses in a mobile style body. Light say this is aimed to replace a traditional DSLR and a bag of lenses.

The Light L16 uses computational imaging to get to the final image. When you make a photograph, it uses multiple lenses to compose the photo. Up to 10 images are combined and then stitched together in post production. On the widest angle setting this produces an 81 Megapixel image.

So how does it work and what do the images look like?
