Tamron has taken the wraps off the second SP-series prime lens of the day. It consists of a model that has an unusual focal length: 45mm. Without much further ado, behold the new Tamron SP 45mm f/1.8 Di VC USD lens, which has been developed for full-frame cameras and which features built-in image stabilization technology.
Tamron is well-known for its zoom lenses that offer excellent price/performance ratio. However, the company is shifting focus to high image quality. The first step is the brand new Tamron SP 35mm f/1.8 Di VC USD lens which will provide superior optical performance, weathersealing, and more in a compact, lightweight package.
Panasonic has confirmed some recent rumors by announcing that the Lumix GH4 camera will receive V-Log support via a special firmware update kit. The Panasonic Lumix GH4 V-Log upgrade kit will be paid, as rumored, and will become available for videographers using this mirrorless camera as of mid-September 2015.
Panasonic will announce a new mirrorless camera with a Micro Four Thirds sensor soon. The company is said to launch a special GH4 version with V-Log support. The camera will be called Panasonic GH4R and will become official on September 1, says the rumor mill, with improved features for professional videographers.
Tamron is preparing a major product launch event in order to reveal new products. According to the rumor mill, the two new Tamron prime lenses will be SP 35mm f/1.8 Di VC USD and SP 45mm f/1.8 Di VC USD. The optics will be released for Canon, Nikon, and Sony cameras with full-frame sensors sometime in the near future.
The rumor mill has got another one right as Canon has revealed a new EF-mount 35mm f/1.4L wide-angle prime. This new product is world’s first model to employ BR Optics technology, which consists of an organic element that reduces chromatic aberration. The new Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM lens will be released this fall.
Canon is preparing a major product launch event for a premium lens. This wide-angle prime has been mentioned within the rumor mill several times, but it is finally coming soon. Before its launch, trusted sources have leaked the first Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM lens photos as well as its specs and price details.
The Olympus E-M10 Mark II Micro Four Thirds camera has just become official. It has not been a secret for a few weeks, as its name, photos, and specs have all been leaked in the meantime. Now, the shooter is official with a new design as well as a built-in 5-axis image stabilization system that is reminiscent of its higher-end siblings.
The rumor mill has recently begun talking about the replacement to the Fujifilm X100T. The compact camera will feature the same sensor that will be added into the X-Pro2. Meanwhile, new details have been leaked and they say that the Fuji X200 will come packed with a different lens from the one found in X100-series cameras.
Curious eyes have noticed an interesting fact for Sony fans: the company has removed the A99 from the products page on its global website. This is a sign that the flagship A-mount camera has been discontinued. If this is true, then it is very likely that the Sony A99II will be announced soon, just like the rumor mill has predicted.
Canon will finally get serious with the mirrorless industry. This is a statement that has been passed around multiple times in the past. However, it seems like this time it is finally happening. The rumor mill is claiming that the Canon EOS M4 will become available worldwide in 2016 along with many new EF-M-mount lenses.
Olympus will officially unveil the successor to the OM-D-series E-M10 by the end of this week. Before the product launch event, trusted sources have leaked a more detailed Olympus E-M10 Mark II specs list. The new information confirms that the mirrorless camera will be a minor evolution of its predecessor instead of a major one.
Olympus will not sit and watch as Panasonic draws all the plaudits with its Dual Image Stabilizer technology. The company has just patented a similar system, allowing photographers to make use of stabilization systems found in a camera and in a lens at the same time. The Olympus dual IS system may be added into the E-M1 Mark II camera.
The future of our oceans and ultimately our future is dark. Pollution is affecting the oceans so much that in some places you cannot surf after it rains. Photographer Michael Dyrland has experienced this issue in Los Angeles, therefore he has created the “Hazmat Surfing” photo project to raise awareness of ocean pollution.
Canon has just patented another lens. The Japan-based company has been performing this action many times since the beginning of 2015 and it will most likely continue to do so. The latest project consists of a Canon EF-S 100-300mm f/4-5.6 IS lens, a telephoto zoom optic designed for EF-S-mount DSLR cameras with APS-C sensors.
