In this lighting tutorial, David Flores shows you indoor and outdoor studio lighting setups for portrait photography. You'll also learn strobist photography techniques, such as camera settings to balance studio strobe light with ambient light.
In this episode of #PHOMO, Paul Trani explores the new Capture from Image functionality in Photoshop. Watch how Photoshop automatically creates patterns, shapes, color themes and gradients from your images using the Capture functionality. Watch this video for helpful tips and tricks to end those feelings of #PHOMO when it comes to design.
SIGMA announces the shipment schedule for SIGMA CINE LENS /i Technology-compatible PL mount lens in the FF High Speed Prime Line.
Shipment schedule:February, 2020
Optimized for large-format camera systems and 8K shooting, the FF High Speed Prime Line lenses deliver stunning image quality in compact construction. A new addition to this prime lens lineup comes with electronic contacts that supports Cooke’s /i Technology communication protocol for Art Prime PL mount lenses.
By using an /i Technology-compatible cine lens with a cine camera that supports the same protocol, users can see and record lens metadata such as focus distance, focal length, and aperture. This helps streamline compositing in the post production process. This is particularly suitable for the latest forms of filmmaking, such as VFX, that call for detailed shooting data.
Prototypes of this /i Technology-compatible FF High Speed Prime lens were used for shooting “Top Gun: Maverick”, scheduled to be released in 2020, showing that the new lens is already in commercial applications.
For SIGMA customers who has already purchased a SIGMA PL mount lens, Mount Conversion Service is available to convert the lenses to /i Technology-compatible PL mount.
In order to apply for the service, please contact your nearest authorized SIGMA subsidiary or distributor.

As you can probably tell from our struggles doing this disassembly, the Nikon Z lenses are very different than their legacy lenses.
They’re also different than what we’ve seen from other manufacturers.
That suggests Nikon Z lenses, like Canon R lenses, are a completely new optomechanical design, probably done entirely in-house.
The engineering itself is incredible in most ways.
The neatly laid out and solidly adhered flexes reflect the careful design.
The taping of every possible point that Loctite or anything else could get in the lens does, too.
The design is logical and clean; the difficulties in the tear-down were ours.
Now that we know our way around, disassembly won’t be bad at all.
