From Lensbaby:

Portland, OR – Lensbaby – makers of award-winning lenses, optics and accessories announces today the availability of the OMNI Creative Filter System by Lensbaby.

The OMNI System offers control and repeatability when shooting through crystals and other objects engineered by Lensbaby to create distinct and compelling in-camera effects. This unique, professional system is unlike anything currently on the market and geared to work on photographers’ existing prime and zoom lenses.


“Shooting through handheld objects can add something special - but it’s difficult to hold an object in front of your lens and achieve the desired effect, while also framing your subject and operating your camera. The OMNI Creative Filter System puts unique, variable and repeatable in-camera effects right at the fingertips of video and still photographers,” said Craig Strong, Lensbaby Chief Creative Officer and Co-Founder. “OMNI's Effect Wands attach magnetically and can easily be manipulated, offering a simple, intuitive and elegant solution.”

The OMNI Creative Filter System utilizes a lightweight ring that screws onto the lens’s filter threads. It includes three Effect Wands that magnetically attach to the filter ring, for quick and easy positioning anywhere around the front of the lens.

“This system brings Lensbaby’s pursuit of in-camera creative effects to those who don’t shoot with Lensbaby lenses,” said Strong. “OMNI is not another camera lens. It’s the ultimate tool for adding artistic control while you are interacting with your subject and making pictures.”

The OMNI Creative Filter System and the Crystal Expansion Pack will be available for pre-order June 18. The OMNI Creative Filter System will retail for $99.95. The Crystal Expansion Pack will retail for $49.95.

B&H has the Lensbaby OMNI Creative Filter System available for preorder.

From Sony:

Sony introduces the new 600mm f/4 G Master lens, further expanding the Sony native mirrorless lens line which are designed from the ground up for Sony Alpha mirrorless cameras. Matched with the Sony a9, the new lens is poised to become a mainstay of professional sports and wildlife photographers.

SAN DIEGO — June 11, 2019 — Sony Electronics Inc. today announced another impressive addition to its flagship full-frame G Master™ series lens lineup: the new FE 600mm F4 GM OSS super-telephoto prime lens (model SEL600F40GM).

As Sony’s longest reaching prime lens, the new 600mm includes many of the company’s most advanced optical and mechanical technologies, producing exceptional image quality with extraordinary focusing speed and precision. The FE 600mm F4 GM OSS is also the lightest lens in its class (1), weighing in at approx. 6.71 lbs., and features an extremely balanced design to ensure the best possible shooting experience. Along with the acclaimed FE 400mm F2.8 GM OSS lens, the new 600mm lens gives professional sports, wildlife and news photographers more options for capturing subjects at a great distances with extreme accuracy and detail.

“With two new lenses announced today, our growing E-mount lens lineup now includes 33 full-frame models and 51 lenses in total,” said Neal Manowitz, deputy president for Imaging and Professional Solutions Americas at Sony Electronics. “The tenth model from our flagship G Master series, the new 600mm F4 raises the bar for speed, mobility and control in a super-telephoto prime lens. Combining the extensive 600mm reach with features like 20 fps shooting and AF/AE calculations at 60 times per second on the a9 or extremely high resolution, high-speed performance on the a7R III allow professional photographers to create images that were simply not possible to capture before.”

Fast, Precise & Quiet Autofocus (2)

To take best advantage of the highly evolved autofocus systems of Sony’s latest full-frame E-mount cameras, the new FE 600mm F4 GM OSS lens features two extreme dynamic (XD) linear motors that drive the lens’ focus group to provide fast, precise AF and reliable subject tracking. These motors are supported by specially developed motion algorithms to minimize lag and instability, as well as to control noise levels, resulting in exceptionally quick, accurate and quiet autofocus performance, allowing the lens to capture dynamic, fast moving athletes or wildlife with ease.

Superb G Master Image Quality & Bokeh

As a member of Sony’s flagship G Master series lenses, this new large-aperture super-telephoto prime lens features an incredible level of image quality and detail, with outstanding contrast and resolution maintained all the way to the corners of the image. The unique optical design includes a large extreme aspherical (XA) element that effectively suppress all common telephoto lens aberrations, in addition to three fluorite elements that help to minimize chromatic aberration and suppress any amount of color bleeding. Sony's latest bokeh simulation technologies and XA element are also utilized to control spherical aberration and help achieve exquisite bokeh.

The lens features an 11-blade circular aperture mechanism that contributes to the high quality of bokeh in images, and it has been coated with Sony’s original Nano AR coating to suppress any unwanted reflections, glare or ghosting in images.

The new FE 600mm F4 GM OSS is compatible with Sony’s 1.4x and 2.0x E-mount tele-converters, producing outstanding imaging performance at extended focal lengths (3) while maintaining fast, precise AF performance.

Lightweight, Balanced Design

The new super-telephoto prime lens provides a level of portability and maneuverability that has never been achieved before in a lens of its class. Based on technology from the acclaimed FE 400mm F2.8 GM OSS lens, the lightweight design of the new 600mm lens is achieved through the usage of three fluorite elements, with a reduced number of elements deployed at the front of the barrel. Magnesium alloy is also used throughout the lens to help minimize weight and bulk.

Also inherited from FE 400mm F2.8 GM OSS, the new 600mm lens features a lens design that is not front-heavy, reducing moment of inertia that resists rotation and ensuring quicker, more precise panning when shooting handheld or on a monopod.

Durability, Reliability & Control

To withstand the harsh conditions of sporting events and wildlife photography, the new Sony FE 600mm F4 GM OSS is built with a durable magnesium alloy and a strong, lightweight carbon fiber hood. The lens is dust and moisture resistant (4), and its front element is coated with fluorine to resist dirt and fingerprints.

FE 600mm F4 GM OSS features an ample number of hard controls on the lens, including customizable focus-hold buttons in four different locations on the lens barrel, which can be programmed for control of features, if desired. There is also a Full-Time DMF switch to immediately engage manual focus at any point, and a focus ring that features Linear Response MF for fine, responsive manual focus.

Additionally, the new lens includes built-in optical stabilization for dynamic action and three different ‘Mode’ settings, including a Mode 3 setting (5) with an advanced algorithm that ensures easier framing when following moving subjects. It also features a function ring with selectable ‘Preset’ and ‘Function’ settings, and a drop-in filter slot that accepts ø 40.5mm ND and other filter types, as well as the optional VF-DCPL1 Drop-in Circular Polarizing Filter. The VF-DCPL1 filter can be rotated to achieve the desired polarization while installed in the lens.

Pricing & Availability

The FE 600mm F4 GM OSS will ship in August 2019 for approximately $13,000 US and $16,900 CA. It will be sold at a variety of Sony’s authorized dealers throughout North America.

From Tamron:

Fast fixed focal SP 35mm F/1.4 Di USD (Model F045) boldly demonstrates Tamron’s lens-making expertise

June 6, 2019, Commack, NY— Tamron announces the launch of a new fixed focal lens, the SP 35mm F/1.4 Di USD (Model F045), for full-frame DSLR cameras. The lens, announced as under-development this February, will be available at Tamron USA authorized retailers at approximately $899 on June 26th in Nikon mount and July 25th in Canon mount.

Tamron’s SP (Superior Performance) lens series was born in 1979, based on the concept of delivering lenses for taking the perfect picture for those who love photography. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the series. In celebration, Tamron has developed the Model F045, the distillation of Tamron’s accumulated lens-making expertise and craftsmanship. This orthodox fixed focal lens, which some consider the most basic of all interchangeable lenses, is the embodiment of all optical technology and manufacturing knowhow Tamron has developed to date. The Model F045’s unprecedented high-resolution image quality and beautiful, appealing background bokeh lets photographers capture any scene down to the finest details. The external lens barrel was developed through the tireless pursuit of operability and durability, focusing constantly on the needs of photographers. This lens is equipped with a large F/1.4 aperture and high-speed, high-precision AF functionality offering exceptional reliability, plus various other features for increased convenience, making it the perfect everyday lens for your creative pursuits. It is ideally suited for nearly every photographic genre, including photojournalism, landscape, sports, street life, wedding groups and family snapshots.

Product Development Background

“To commemorate the 40th Anniversary of Tamron’s renowned SP series lenses that are designed and constructed to deliver the highest levels of performance, we drew upon our accumulated expertise and technologies to create the ‘ultimate lens’ — the Model F045,” said the person responsible for product planning. “Our goal was to achieve high resolution, fidelity of point light source and beautiful bokeh,” he continued. “We deployed existing skills, like our highly regarded knowhow for producing bokeh, and combined them with new innovations like BBAR-G2 (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection Generation 2) Coating for anti-reflection performance. Today we announce with sincere pride that the Model F045 embodies Tamron’s philosophy for manufacturing and is the finest lens in Tamron’s history.”

PRODUCT HIGLIGHTS

1. Consummate image quality across the entire frame from edge-to-edge The optical construction (14 elements in 10 groups) leverages the best of Tamron technology and features a generous arrangement of special glass materials including four LD (Low Dispersion) and three GM (Glass Molded Aspherical) lens elements.
This combination of components successfully eliminates the effects of chromatic aberrations (which are particularly perilous for high-speed lenses) as well as other optical aberrations to the greatest extent possible. Even at its maximum aperture of F/1.4, high resolution performance is achieved from the center of the frame to the edges, providing superior aberration correction to maintain perfect fidelity of point shapes. The result is ultimate ultra-high image quality. This exceptional optical performance extends to the quality of defocused bokeh areas. With this lens, photographers can capture dramatic images that neatly sculpt their subjects against large and beautifully appealing background bokeh.

2. Next-generation BBAR-G2 Coating To maximize the optical performance and ultra-high image quality of this lens, special measures are in place for optimal correction against ghosting and flare.
Tamron has developed BBAR-G2 Coating through continued research into the coating technologies they have developed over many years. This new BBAR-G2 Coating vastly exceeds the performance of the original BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Coating that enjoys a long and well-established reputation in its own right. In addition to minimizing ghosting and flare, BBAR-G2 Coating enables clear images with stunning, unprecedented contrast.

3. Exceptionally reliable, fast and accurate AF
The AF drive is equipped with Tamron’s proprietary USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive). This technology affords an autofocusing system with high speed, precision and quiet operation—even in a large aperture lens, which is typically bigger and heavier. Additionally, thanks to the Dynamic Rolling-cam mechanism that has been newly developed specifically for this lens, Tamron has succeeded in minimizing the drive load placed on the focus lens component. This breakthrough ensures stable AF operating performance and improves reliability even under the harsh shooting conditions of professional use, including high and low temperature extremes. This exceptional lens is also equipped with a Full-Time Manual Focus override system so photographers can instantly make fine adjustments to the point of focus, even when using the AF mode.

4. Vastly improved highly durable Fluorine Coating
The front surface of the lens element is coated with a Fluorine Coating based on a newly developed fluorine compound with high water- and oil-repellent properties. The lens surface is easier to wipe clean and is less vulnerable to the damaging effects of dirt, dust, moisture, and fingerprints, and enabling your important lenses to be continually protected on a long-term basis.

5. Moisture-Resistant Construction
Seals are located at the lens mount area and other critical locations to prevent infiltration of moisture and/or rain to provide Moisture-Resistant Construction. This feature affords an additional layer of protection when shooting outdoors under adverse weather conditions.

6. Compatible with TAMRON TAP-in ConsoleTM, an optional accessory
The Model F045 is compatible with the TAMRON TAP-in Console, an optional accessory product that provides a USB connection to a personal computer, enabling users to easily update a lens’s firmware as well as customize features including fine adjustments to the AF.

7. Locking lens hood for precise positioning
The included lens hood is equipped with a locking mechanism. Being able to reliably attach the hood prevents it from unintentionally shifting position or coming off at the wrong time.

8. Consistent with Tamron’s sophisticated design concepts
The smoothly contoured body and the texture of fine details reinforce simple operation and ensure intuitive use. The shape boasts a high-grade feel worthy of a next-generation model that’s packed with advanced technologies. The form snugly houses the internal components, while the carefully finished Luminous Gold brand ring and painstakingly precise construction speak loudly of the extreme high quality of the lens. Combined with the ergonomic switch box shape, highly legible distance-scale window and sturdy metal mount, the lens boasts a finely-finished rugged and functional design.

Image quality test results have been added to the Sony FE 24mm f/1.4 GM Lens page.

Now we know why this compact and reasonably-priced (less than the Canon and Nikon equivalents) lens has been nearly unobtainable. Here are some comparisons (using differing camera formats).

From Profoto:

With the B10 Plus, shooting on location isn't about problems, it's about opportunities.

Because shooting on location forces you to make choices.

For the most part, those choices inevitably come down to how much gear to bring and how much gear to leave behind.

Because if you’re shooting a wedding, for example, you can’t afford for your gear to slow you down. And if the location is remote there’s only so much you can realistically carry. Ultimately, there’s always a compromise.

Here at Profoto, we’re not big on compromise. That’s what drove us to create the Profoto B10 and now, it’s ever so slightly bigger brother, the Profoto B10 Plus.

“Like the Profoto B10, the B10 Plus is a seriously small flash.” Commented Göran Marén, Product Manager at Profoto.

“It’s around the size of a large lens. That means you can fit it in your bag with the rest of your gear and because it's cordless and lightweight, it's easy to bring and set up anywhere.”

Despite its small and lightweight appearance, the Profoto B10 Plus packs a considerable punch. Twice as powerful as the B10 the B10 Plus gives you ten times more light than a speedlight. And the quality of that light is exactly what you’d expect from a Profoto flash; completely natural with a beautifully soft fall off.

The B10 Plus is also a powerful light that you can use for both stills and video. And lt’s easy to use. A separate dial on the sleek B10 interface allows you to adjust both brightness and color temperature until it blends perfectly with the ambient light.

"The B10 Plus uses the same stand adapter and battery as the B10” Göran adds, “the stand adapter can be quickly removed allowing you to mount the B10 Plus on any camera tripod.

The battery too is just as swiftly replaced, and you can charge it while you’re using it.”

The ‘no compromise’ approach continues with the huge range of compatible Profoto light-shaping tools. Profoto´s compact and lightweight OCF series is the perfect choice for light shaping on location. If they´re not enough, there are 120 more to choose from in the full Profoto range.

Controlling the B10 Plus off-camera is, again, easy. You can trigger and control the B10 Plus from any Profoto Air Remote, or from the Profoto A1 or A1X. Remotes are available for all major camera brands.

And you’ll also benefit from smart connectivity with the Profoto app. With the B10 Plus connected to the Profoto app you can view and control all the settings from your smartphone screen, experience creative capture with your smartphone, and download all the latest updates.

Ultimately, like it’s slightly smaller brother the B10, the B10 Plus is a big light in a small package. And the extra power means the possibilities are enormous.

Göran concluded. “we call it ‘more power of small.’ Because there are more possibilities to be creative with light in so many more ways. The opportunity to let your imagination run riot on any location.”

The Profoto B10 Plus; now, there’s no need to compromise.

B&H will carry the Profoto B10 Plus.

When the fog is present, contrast is significantly decreased and heavy fog can reduce visibility to very short distances. While in Shenandoah National Park for two days in the spring, heavy fog was the only visibility I had. The dozens of turnouts and trails designed to show off spectacular views of the mountains and valleys far below all had the same view. White fog.

When this happens, one option is to find close subjects. With close subjects resulting in less light-scattering fog between the camera and subject, good color and contrast is retained. The large patches of bright green ferns were one such subject that always catches my attention in the spring in Shenandoah National Park. Fog scatters light in all directions, creating very even lighting even deep in the woods.

The one problem remaining was a light breeze. Some of the ferns I was photographing were waist high. With a big sail and a small stem, these ferns moved in even the lightest breeze. I would rather the slight motion blur in the lower left fern blade not be there.

Options for dealing with the subject motion were limited. Embracing the movement and allowing the subject to become blurred is an easy one. Results vary when using this technique.

Waiting for short breaks in the breeze was option I worked on. Taking many shots was another, trying to catch a fern at the end of its motion.

Making shorter shutter speeds available by increasing the ISO setting is another good option. This option results in increased noise in the image, but sometimes a scene can be captured at a low ISO for the stationary subject and then at a higher ISO setting to keep the moving parts stabilized. The two (or more) image can then be stacked during post processing with only the in-motion portion of the frame being shown for the high ISO capture.

Using a narrower aperture offers the same shutter speed advantage with reduction of DOF being the penalty.

A last method I was working with involved placing small temporary Y-shaped twigs at the base of the closest ferns (the ones moving across the most pixels) to help stabilize them. A Wimberley Plamp is a good tool for this purpose.

Moving farther away from the moving branch and/or using a wider focal length make the moving subject smaller in the frame which means they cross over imaging sensor pixels less rapidly which means they are sharper in the final image.

Remove the light-cutting circular polarizer filter can help establish faster shutter speeds, though this is not often a good choice for landscape photography. While on the fog topic, note that CPL filters very significantly cut through fog. The difference can be very noticeable. Rotate the filter to turn on or off the fog effect, obtaining the look you want.

Credentialed access to a 4 hour concert in a 15,000-seat indoor stadium seemed like the perfect opportunity to give the Canon EOS R and Canon RF 28-70mm f/2L USM Lens a workout while the mostly high-energy performers also got a workout.

When photographing low light action, one historically had to choose between a moderately wide aperture (f/2.8) in a zoom lens and an ultra-wide aperture (f/1.4 for example) in a prime lens. With the RF 28-70, you can have both a wide aperture and a zoom focal length range. While some prime lenses still have the wide aperture advantage, the RF 28-70 f/2 L lens bridges the divide and, especially from an image quality perspective, is an outstanding option for low light needs including concert photography.

The spot lights happened to be on the singer (Ledger) in this image, allowing a very clean ISO 800 with a shutter speed adequate to stop most of the motion at f/2. Other images were captured at ISO settings as high as 6400 where the 1-stop advantage this zoom lens has over most other zooms makes a considerably bigger difference in image quality.

At concerts, the location of the action is often unpredictable and changing fast and that means focal length changes are required, ideally fitting for a zoom lens. Yes, some prime lenses could have given me another 1-stop lower ISO setting, but I would have minimally needed multiple cameras to cover the same range and often the performers were moving so fast that the shot would have been long gone by the time the cameras were swapped. Shooting wider and cropping later is an option, but lower resolution images are the result.

Also great for fast moving subjects was the R's touch and drag AF. With the left hand adjusting the focal length and the right thumb moving the focus point as needed for ideal framing, the EOS R was an ideal choice.

Every shoot teaches new lessons and here are a few concert photography tips from that night.

First, if photographing with a media pass, know without a doubt which gate you are supposed to enter through and be ready to politely ask for a additional opinions when the first person(s) thinks they know the different gate you are required to enter through. This saves walking half way around a stadium to the shipping and receiving area and waiting for a security guard to make a series of phone calls to figure out what you already knew and send you back to the other side of the stadium. If opting to ignore this advice, strongly consider arriving at least 1 hour early.

Also if photographing with a media pass, make sure that you have a signed copy of that pass (minimally on your phone) with you because the media reps for some reason may not have your name on the list. If offered a label with your name handwritten on it, request a lanyard because your camera strap is going to peel the label off within 10 minutes of your arrival, leaving you without the pass. Minimally attach the label to something that avoids the peel-off risk.

While your media pass may specify where you are supposed to photograph from, the media pass may not have been updated since the 360° stage was implemented. The specified locations may not exist and those working the show may have no clue about the topic or even how to get to the floor from the entrance level. Arrive early enough that if the instructions do not align with reality there is time to figure out where you are permitted to go without negatively impacting the show (it is probably not being performed for you).

Oh, if the tour is promoting a 360° stage, just get a ticket and leave the camera at home. Within seconds, the performer can be a basketball court distance away and even two cameras with complementing zoom lenses are not adequate. Compounding the problem is that you will have backs toward you for at least 270° of the stage.

I'll add these notes to the concert photography tips page.

This bull had just lost a fight over a harem of cows and headed for the hills. His rack was larger than that of the opponent, but the opponent's body was larger and that is where the battle strength comes from.

Capturing this image was primarily a matter of repeatedly getting out in front of the bull and properly predicting where it would enter a clearing at the right distance for the big prime lens I was using. As you will notice from the camera settings for this image, it was quite dark when this image was captured. The pursuit started under cloudy weather that deteriorated into light rain.

I still have one opening remaining for the September elk in rut photo tour in Rocky Mountain National Park (or get on the 2020 waiting list). Consider joining a small group of photographers (all skill levels welcome) pursuing these awesome animals and other wildlife and landscape opportunities in this great park!

We often see beams of light created my nature but being at the right place at the right time when you're shooting portraits is tricky. So in this video Gavin Hoey will show you how to use flash to create rays of light on a location shoot, whenever you want them.

Using a single flash fired through a small window, Gavin adds smoke to the scene in order to see the real rays of light. He then adds a second flash to light his model and create a dark and moody urbex style portrait in a disused building.

Image quality test results have been added to the Sony FE 100mm f/2.8 STF GM OSS Lens page.

You are going to be impressed with these results.

This is a unique lens. The product images show that this lens has a manual aperture ring denoted "T", for T-stops, showing the actual amount of light transmission. While this is technically an f/2.8 lens, the T-stop ring stops at f/5.6 and f/5.6 is the widest aperture selectable in-camera. The reason has to do with the STF (Smooth Trans Focus) feature including an optical apodization lens element. More information coming.

From Lastolite:

Upper Saddle River, NJ - MAY 21, 2019 - The Lastolite Panoramic Background is a collapsible 13’ (4m) wide, 7’5” (2.3m) high background that folds down neatly into its own carry case and fits easily into a car. Weighing only 19.8lb (9kg), it’s ideal for busy image-makers on the move. The background is completely self-supporting and can be set up in minutes. The structure comprises three individual aluminum framed sections, connected together with a hinge clip to allow the background to be set up flat to lean against a wall or with the side frames folded in to create a wraparound effect. The Chroma Key Blue cover simply clips to the aluminum frame and creates a taught, seamless surface.

The background is ideal for live stream and post-production keying projects. Its impressive 13' width creates enough working area for multiple camera angles and subjects. Although the brushed fabric is incredibly non-reflective, the height and width combined is enough to place the subject(s) at a good working distance from the background eliminating risk of any color spill from the Chroma Key Blue surface.

Whether you are shooting a single person, a larger group or even products, the Lastolite Panoramic Background offers ultimate versatility. The wider format allows the image-maker to introduce props and accommodate animated poses from the likes of dancers or athletes. The Chroma Key Blue now sits alongside the highly successful Chroma Key Green, Black, White, Granite and Limestone versions.

All models are available at select Authorized Lastolite Dealers.

B&H has the Panoramic Background 13' Chroma Key Blue available for preorder and the other Lastolite Panoramic Backgrounds in stock.

Via KickStarter, Peak Design has introduced a unique, ultra-compactable travel tripod.

From Peak Design:

Peak Design Unveils The Next Generation of Camera Tripods

New Travel Tripod Promises to Redefine Product Category for Years to Come

San Francisco, CA (May, 2019) – After multiple award-winning bag releases, Peak Design, the worldwide leader in crowdfunding and everyday carry solutions, is proud to disrupt yet another product category—the camera tripod. More than four years in the making, Peak Design’s newest release, Travel Tripod, is a ground-up reexamination of camera tripod design to produce the world’s most portable, packable, and easy-to-setup tripod for professionals and first-time tripod owners alike.

Peak Design directly addressed their biggest rub about traditional tripods: spatial inefficiency and unnecessary bulk. Peak Design’s goal was to eliminate the dead space within a tripod, an ever-present inefficiency that often doubles or triples the effective diameter of a packed tripod. Peak Design engineers reworked Travel Tripod’s legs and center column to nest perfectly together in order to achieve a total packed diameter of just 3.25 inches—roughly the diameter of a water bottle. The result is a tripod that deploys to 60 inches tall while taking up less than half the volume of its competitors.

“During my travels in 2008 I began wondering why on Earth my tripod was so big. The thing was full of negative space and knobs, and I felt like something designed for portability could do much better,” commented Peak Design CEO, Peter Dering. “I quickly realized that anything short of a complete design overhaul would fail to meet my criteria of the perfect travel tripod. It took years of development but the outcome is a camera tripod that seamlessly integrates into all aspects of travel and adventure.”

Travel Tripod is among the quickest-to-deploy and most intuitive to use tripods on the market. Peak Design developed a system of non-inverted legs that rapidly deploy along an aligned system of locking cam levers. With three swift hand movements, the legs can be fully extended and ready for action.

Peak Design also optimized the Travel Tripod ball head to operate more fluidly than traditional tripod heads while still prioritizing spatial efficiency. Travel Tripod eliminates bulky and confusing knobs with a single adjustment ring for simple and smooth 360-degree adjustment. Peak Design’s proprietary quick-release plate technology facilitates lightning-fast camera attachment—easily accommodating a full frame DSLR with telephoto lens—and is compatible with Peak Design carrying equipment and with Arca Swiss tripod dimensions. Furthermore, Travel Tripod’s ball head measures just 3.25 inches in diameter, keeping it aligned with the packed profile of the tripod’s legs for exceptionally compact carry.

In addition to a thorough rethinking of a tripod's architecture and user interface, carefully considered material choices and construction techniques provide the stability and vibration dampening demanded by avid photographers. A builtin universal phone mount, bubble-level, hook for counterweights, and included soft case round out a packed feature list that fans of Peak Design have come to expect.

Available both in carbon fiber and aluminum legs (MSRP: $599.95 // $349.95) the Travel Tripod will launch on KickStarter (peakdesign.com/ks) for a pre-sale discount beginning May 21, 2019. The tripod will then be available for purchase online at peakdesign.com and through major retailers in time for the 2019 holiday season.

In the recent On the Ledge at R. B. Ricketts Falls in Ricketts Glen State Park post, I mentioned that my camera rain cover failed, allowing the camera and lens to get wet. The link associated with the camera rain cover was to the LensCoat RainCoat review. That is the rain cover brand I should have been using, but not the one that failed. The inadequate rain cover was an inexpensive model I was evaluating. Sorry for any confusion!

The timing was perfect for a visit to Ricketts Glen State Park. The new beech tree leaves were coming out with their light spring green color looking great. It had rained a significant amount the prior day and the forecast was for rain all of this day.

Waterfalls, of course, thrive on rain, rain saturates the landscape, rain requires clouds and clouds ensure even lighting, and also helpful is that rain keeps the (smarter?) potential park visitors at home and out of images. On this day, I had the Falls Trails completely to myself until I was hiking out near dark.

Rain also makes photography a bit more challenging. I was wearing Gore-Tex clothing (boots, pants, and jacket) that kept me completely dry. At least dry until I overheated a bit while hiking up out of the canyon at a fast pace with quick-drying clothing resolving that problem quickly after I was back in the car. I carried a large umbrella to work under (awkward but very helpful) and had a microfiber cloth readily available to wipe water drops from the front of the lens. When shooting waterfalls, a microfiber cloth is often needed regardless of the rain situation. Note that nano-coated filters are easy to keep clean and easily worth their additional cost on days like these. The camera and lens were in an inexpensive rain cover that I was evaluating and that is now on the to-replace list as it was not "waterproof", leaving the camera and lens wet enough that a towel was needed (get a LensCoat RainCoat). This is an example of when weather sealing can save the day.

The Canon EOS 5Ds R and the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III USM Lens were the only camera and lens that came out of my BackLight 26L on this day. It was the perfect combination for this image and all of the others I wanted. Also in the backpack was an EOS R and RF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Lens. The BackLight's rear access meant that cameras could be swapped without setting the backpack down on the very wet ground and without taking the rain cover off.

I've mentioned that I rely on my tripod for personal support at times and this was one of those. Working up onto this ledge over wet rocks was not easy and a Really Right Stuff TVC-24L Carbon Fiber Tripod saved me from a serious fall when my footing broke loose. The ledge position meant that the lower tripod legs were planted rather far below me, making every inch of the "Long" length of this tripod very useful. Saving my images by cutting reflections and increasing saturation was a Breakthrough Photography circular polarizer filter. Had I forgotten this filter, I would probably have just turned around and gone home.

Overall, it was a great day in Ricketts Glenn SP. I'll likely be sharing more of the images captured on this day at some point.

With 24 named waterfalls, including some of the most photogenic falls around, Ricketts Glen State Park is waterfall photography heaven. I spent over 45 minutes capturing a variety of compositions of this falls alone and finally forced myself to move on, leaving some options for another day. If you are interested in photographing with me here, I need to know. This will likely be the destination for an upcoming waterfall photography workshop!

This is the application you've been waiting for! No, it is not April Fools Day. Now you can wear pictures of the grandkids on each finger!

From Canon:

MELVILLE, NY, May 14, 2019 – Look down – how are your nails looking? Is it time for a new set? No problem – Canon has you covered! Eliminating the need to visit your local nail salon, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, introduces printable nail stickers for select PIXMA series printers. Now, you can refresh your manicure in the comfort of your own home.

With a quick download of the Canon Nail Sticker Creator App*, users of compatible iPad®, iPhone® and Android™ mobile devices, and Canon PIXMA TS9521C, PIXMA TS9520, PIXMA TS8220 and PIXMA TS702 Printers can select from an assortment of 200 designs and have access to newly uploaded designs four times per year, or create their own nail art** within the app. When using the Canon Printable Nail Sticker sheets, the nail sticker design of choice will print onto a precut sheet of stickers placed on the printer’s multipurpose tray, and can be peeled off and adhered to the user’s nails. After a quick filing of the edges and application of a top coat to seal the design(s) – the mani is complete!

"With the launch of printable nail stickers, we are excited to provide our customers with another reason to expand their printing needs and let their creative expression flourish right on their fingertips,” said Kazuto Ogawa, president and chief operating officer, Canon U.S.A., Inc.

The new Canon Printable Nail Sticker sheets (twelve stickers per sheet) are available two per pack and initially, will be available exclusively on the Canon Online Store for $12.99 per pack***. For more information and the full list of product specifications, visit https://shop.usa.canon.com/shop/en/catalog/glossy-paper.

 
Even if the nail stickers are not your thing, you might find the 1/2-priced Canon Photo Paper interesting.

From Profoto:

We are never fully satisfied with the products we make. We always strive to take steps forward, whether they be baby-steps or strides. That is why we not only will create ground-breaking products, but we'll also continually evaluate and improve those products, as we have done with the launch of Profoto A1X, the A1’s new and improved sibling. It has a little more of everything that made its predecessor a success. An even more powerful battery, faster recycling and Sony compatibility are some of the 30+ updates that we have made to the product. Or put in other words – more when it matters.

Because in photography, there are no second chances. An image might present itself for a second, and then it's gone, so you can't afford to be fiddling with batteries or waiting for the flash to recharge - you've got to be ready. That's why the new Profoto A1X has up to 450 full power pops per charge, and lightning-fast one-second recharge time, so you'll never miss a shot.

The light in the image will always be natural and beautiful thanks to the innovative round head with its soft and gentle fall-off.

Allowing you even more creative freedom, the A1X features a magnetic click-on mount for light shaping tools; there are six tools available that can be used individually or in combination with one another.

And for more flexibility still, there's a flicker-free modelling light built-in to the head, so you can see exactly what you're going to capture before you press the shutter; which is especially useful when operating off-camera or in low light situations.

The Profoto A1X features a 20-channel Air Remote with HSS and AirTTL so you'll always get beautiful and professional images fast. And with the increased number of channels, you can be sure you won’t be interrupted at busy events or important moments.

Use TTL mode, and it's essentially point-and-shoot, the sensor will calculate the correct exposure for you. However, switch it over to manual, and you can then fine-tune that exposure to create exactly the look and feel you want.

Ease of use has always been at the heart of every Profoto product, and the A1X is no exception. The large, high-resolution display is incredibly easy to navigate with big, super-legible numbers. The way we see it, the less time you spend messing about with menu's, the more time you can spend doing what you love – creating images.

And whether you're a Sony, Canon or Nikon shooter, all the light shaping possibilities of the Profoto A1X are yours to enjoy.

Whether it's the natural and beautiful light it provides, the easy to navigate and intuitive display or superior battery life and recycling time - with the Profoto A1X there's more when it matters.

Because let's face it - it always matters.

From Adobe:

New features and enhancements in the May 2019 (version 8.3) release of Lightroom Classic

Flat-Field Correction

You can now reduce shading, or lens cast, from your digital photos using the Flat-Field Correction feature. Shading can occur from a variety of different lenses and can result in both asymmetrical vignettes as well as color casts introduced by certain lens characteristics.

Flat-Field Correction is available in the Library module. To apply the correction, select all your photos in a natural interleaved order and choose Lightroom > Library > Flat-Field Correction.

For detailed information, see Flat-Field Correction.

New Texture slider

You can now smoothen or accentuate details such as skin, bark, and hair with the new Texture slider. You can adjust the Texture slider negatively to smooth skin and retain fine pore details to ensure natural-looking skin. You can increase the Texture amount to accentuate details such as bark or hair without affecting less detailed areas, like the out of focus areas in a photograph. Adjusting the Texture slider does not change the color or tonality in your photograph.

You can apply texture to your photos both as a global adjustment and to specific parts of the photo as a local adjustment. To apply texture, select a photo and switch to the Develop module.

Other enhancements

Import photos from devices using the Files section

When you import photos from storage devices, such as SD card and CF card, the photos are now selected from the Import grid’s Files section by default. In previous versions, it used to be from the Device section.

Importing from the Files section is more performant. The Files section selects the DCIM folder of the storage device where the camera saves images. If you want to select any other folder, you can do so.

Improved performance of Auto setting

Experience performance improvements when you apply Auto settings. In the Develop module, the Auto option is located next to Tone in the Basic panel.

From the COOPH YouTube Channel:

The COOPH team wanted to bring their images to life, so we have created this video to show you exactly how we did it – using some epic Cinemagraph ideas that anyone can try! Cinemagraphs are still essentially photographs in which a small and repetitive movement is shown. They are super cool, easy to make and are sure to make your future social media posts stand out from the crowd! So, take a look at these six tips and try them out for yourself!

Note: For the mirror reflection portrait, I can't help but think the cinemagraph might have been more interesting if the focus had been on the subject rather than the subject's reflection. What do you think? [Sean]

Just posted: Really Right Stuff TFC/TVC-24/24L Mk2 Tripod Review.

This is my second-most-used tripod with only the Really Right Stuff TVC-34L Mk2 Tripod being used more frequently. These two tripods are practically the same except for a smaller and lighter frame, a lower weight capacity, and a lower price. Thus, a majority of the reviews are shared.

From Rokinon USA:

(New York, New York) May 13, 2019 – ROKINON has announced its new AF 45mm F1.8 Compact Lens for Sony E mount. It is Rokinon’s third compact lens and seventh auto focus lens designed specifically for Sony mirrorless cameras.

The 45mm focal length provides a natural appearance, approximating how we perceive a scene with our own eyes.

It is actually closer to the human eye than a 50mm focal length is. This focal length is great for general purpose use and can be readily used for portraiture, extreme sports, parties, lifestyle, architecture, landscape, street photography and more.

Optically, the lens is made up of 7 elements in 6 groups. Two Aspherical plus one Extra-low Dispersion element and Ultra Multi-Coating are utilized to effectively control vignetting, distortion and chromatic aberration. Additionally, the rounded nine-blade diaphragm and F1.8 bright aperture produce a pleasing out-of-focus quality when working with shallow depth of field techniques.

The minimum focusing distance is 17.7” and the 49mm non-rotating filter mount allows for easy use of polarizing and other filters that require precise positioning. For Sony APS-C sensor cameras, the focal length is equivalent to a moderate telephoto of 67.5mm.

Construction has been optimized for portability, compactness, ergonomic handling, and the durability of a metal barrel. Offering quiet and accurate autofocusing with enhanced speed and at 5.71oz in weight and 2.43” in length, it is the perfect lens to live on your Sony camera always. Don’t miss that special and unique moment! It is often said “The best camera (and lens) is the one you have with you”.

The ROKINON AF 45mm F1.8 Compact Lens for Sony E is expected to be available in early June with a street price of only $399.00. It will include a lens hood, lens caps, and a custom fitted case.
