Able to capture 4K video without heating problems, the Fujifilm X-T2 is one of the most popular cameras of the moment in the same week Samyang announces a new series of lenses. These are some of the new published during the week 28 of 2016.
Lightroom Mobile gets RAW
Lightroom Mobile for iOS finally offers the option to edit RAW files. With Lightroom 2.4, iPad or iPhone users can import RAW files directly, edit them and share them anywhere. It is also possible to perform local adjustments. Android users also got an update, to Lightroom 2.1, which now offers a new Pro mode that lets you control the shutter speed, ISO, white balance, and focus all manually, in a brand new interface. Both updates also offer new features while correcting previous bugs. Get all the info following the link to Adobe blog about Lightroom mobile.
Fujifilm X-T2: 4K and no heat
Fujifilm’s X-T2 continues to be the camera in the spotlight. The Camera Store TV made a 18 minute video looking at aspects of a mirrorless model they consider offers great “color grading in camera” if you don’t want to be bothered with or do not know about color grading. But there is more about a model that will soon have a F-Log, courtesy of Fujifilm’s habit of expanding functions with firmware. And then there is that comparison with the Sony A6300. The Sony keeps heating and the Fujifilm manages the heat convincingly, we are told. See the video for some more information on this surprising camera.
Samyang Blockbuster for Summer
Samyang promised to blow our minds away this Summer, with five new amazing lenses released every Monday for the next five weeks. The first information available, a laconic text and the image published here, did not give much information about the new lenses, so when I wrote this, on Sunday, there was still no information about the first lens to be launched. In the mean time, because the marketing department at Samyang had devised a way to make people talk about the new lenses – offering Amazon Coupons – multiple suggestions about which would be the first lens on the Samyang Blockbuster series appeared online. Well, it is known now, and you’ll find the information on the pages of ProVideo Coalition. It is a lens for Cinema. A new Xeen.
Seven reasons to use a SLR
One of the most commented piece of news last week was an article which, in fact, was published earlier but only started to grab attention recently. The article by Thom Hogan, titled “Seven Reasons Why I’m Still a Nikon DSLR User” was shared online by many websites and social networks. In a world where we are told that DSLRs are dying, Thom Hogan explains why he will “continue to shoot with Nikon DSLRs.”. It’s a long article that may interest all those who look for a reason, or multiple, to buy a DSLR camera.
