twenty-twenty vision

In the good old days – and, in fact, up until quite recently really – you decided on a camera system and stuck with it, upgrading bodies when needed and adding new lenses when needed. Once in a while, the camera-maker would spring a change of lens mount on you, but it was rare for this to be a completely new fitting. Canon’s switch from the manual-focus FD to the autofocus and fully-electronic EF in 1987 was probably one of the most momentous, but Nikon made the same transition essentially by stealth so there was much more time to adjust, especially financially. Now, if you’re still shooting with D-SLRs – and lots of you are – there’s going to be some big decisions to be made, and in the not-too-distant future.…

Panasonic Reveals Full Lumix S1H Details Panasonic’s third Lumix S series mirrorless camera body – which was first revealed back in May this year – is primarily targeted at cinematographers and has just gone on sale in Australia. It’s packed with high-end video features, optimising its dedicated full-35mm format sensor. The Lumix DC-S1H is the world’s first full-35mm format mirrorless camera capable of recording 6K/24p video in the 3:2 aspect ratio. It’s also the first to record 5.9K/30p video in the 16:9 aspect ratio, plus 10-bit 4K in both the UHD and DCI resolutions at either 60 fps or 50 fps.

sigma and the art of making fine lenses

Sigma Art Lenses In Sony FE Mount SO FAR, 11 of Sigma’s much-awarded and much-acclaimed Art series lenses are now available in the full-frame version of Sony E-mount. Sigma’s Art line lenses boast a very high level of quality and performance – both physically and optically – which has seen them compared favourably with products from both Leica and Zeiss. The 11 Art line primes in the FE mount cover 14mm to 135mm. Importantly, Sigma has obtained a licensing agreement with Sony which means the E-mount Art lenses are fully compatible with all the A7 and A9 series full-frame mirrorless cameras, including the ‘Fast Hybrid AF’ continuous autofocusing mode, the in-body image stabilisation, and in-camera lens corrections – for peripheral illumination (vignetting), chromatic aberrations and distortion. Available at selected camera retailers around Australia,…
