panasonic announces the lumix s1r and s1

Panasonic has unveiled its two new full-frame L-mount models, the Lumix S1R and Lumix S1. The cameras, which are the company’s first additions to the L-mount system, are accompanied by three new lenses. The Lumix S1R and S1 are identical in virtually every respect, but while the S1R is fitted with a 47.3MP full-frame sensor, the Lumix S1 sports a lower-resolution 24.2MP one. This makes the S1R, by a slim margin, highest-resolution full-frame camera currently on the market. The SR1 offers a maximum native ISO of 25,600, while the S1 tops out at ISO51,200, with expansion settings available for emergencies. Rather than use Panasonic’s existing collection of Micro Four Thirds optics, the two new models are compatible with a fresh collection of L-mount lenses. Three have been announced, with several more in…

get the bigger picture

Wide-angle lenses are one of the first optical types new photographers aspire to own, since these are often used for landscape and travel photography – two genres beginners aspire to conquer. These lenses have a unique appeal due to their broadly inclusive field of view, and are capable of capturing scenes in a way we could never see with our own eyes. Ultra-wide images exhibit a hyper-realistic representation of the world, since they approximate what our vision would look like if the separate fields of view of both of our eyes were overlapped, but incorporate more peripheral detail. This opens up a tremendous range of possibilities, as we are able to use this enhanced perspective to produce extreme depth in our compositions, drawing focus to key areas of the frame. There…

choose a lens type

PRIME LENSES A fixed focal length lens will generally offer superior optical quality, yielding greater edge-to-edge sharpness and contrast than a zoom. There are likely to be weight and size benefits too, plus a wider maximum aperture, making a prime often the better choice. ZOOM LENSES A zoom lens, such as a 14-24mm or 16-35mm, provides greater scope for controlling edge detail and perfecting the frame in-camera. This will also save time swapping lenses, which is especially useful if you’re shooting at sunrise or sunset, when light is rapidly changing.…

glossary of terminology

ASPHERICAL ELEMENTS Normal glass elements are curved, forming a portion of a sphere. This introduces distortion around the image edges, so many lens manufacturers use some elements with a non-spherical design. This minimises the distortion effect and increases corner-to-corner quality. ‘ASP’ is a common indicator of aspherical element usage. INTERNAL FOCUSING Professional lenses use a more advanced focusing system that moves the lens elements within the barrel, so that the front element does not extend or rotate. This is especially useful in wide-angle optics, since landscape photographers use filters that they need to remain stationary – polarisers and ND grads in particular. NANO CRYSTAL COATINGS While ‘Nano crystal’ is a Nikon term, the use of small crystalline structures on lens surfaces is a popular technique amongst manufacturers. These substances help minimise flare and internal reflections,…

understand lens choice

Even more so than when shopping for cameras, photographers looking for a new lens are faced with a daunting variety of options. Even in the wide-angle category there are many shapes, sizes and specifically targeted optics to choose from, and it can be difficult to know which models are the perfect match for your current requirements. One positive aspect is that, when it comes to lens features, there are generally fewer ‘gimmicks’ than can regularly be found in the specifications of camera bodies. The majority of technologies included in modern lenses do benefit every user, from beginner to professional, due to the increases in sharpness or other optical performance they provide – although prospective buyers must decide if the additional costs these features bring are justifiable for their regular print…
