Sometimes your favorite lens just won't get you what you need, and that's where Lensbaby and LEE Filters come in handy. Lensbaby produces specialty selective-focus lenses. There is a wide selection of nice optics, like the Edge 80 and Sweet 35, which work perfectly with the Composer. I must say that seeing them in action is pretty cool, but they take some getting used to. It's not every day you have access to these effects, unless you own a Lensbaby.
Sony has just announced an updated version of their highly versatile and aptly performing telephoto zoom A-mount lens, the 70-200mm f/2.8 G SSM II. This updated lens brings with it a refined autofocus system that improves subject-tracking capabilities for even more precise, repeatable focus control when working with fast-moving subjects at a distance.
The Pentax K-3 DSLR is getting a lot of praise for a camera that was only announced three weeks ago. Specifically, the first-of-its-kind selectable anti-aliasing simulator is garnering attention for an optional function that, prior to the K-3, required two separate cameras to achieve. But in my short time with this camera it became clear that it’s not just the anti-aliasing filter option that makes the K-3 a camera worth talking about.
Pentax has announced a new APS-C sized digital SLR camera with a 24.3MP CMOS sensor. The Pentax K-3 Digital SLR Camera takes its place atop the Pentax DSLR lineup with its high-resolution sensor, in-camera image stabilization, weatherproofing, fast professional features, and a selectable anti-aliasing filter.
In the following video, Larry Becker presents four wide-angle Distagon T* lenses from Zeiss. The video explores the 15mm f/2.8, 21mm f/2.8, 25mm f/2, and the 35mm f/1.4 lenses and touches on their practical optical performance, including commentary on their manual-focus design, build quality, and different mounts. Becker also showcases examples of how the lenses perform.
Pentax has released five new K-mount autofocus lenses for its series of APS-C format DSLR cameras. The lenses are updates of existing lenses and are being released as a limited-production run with a focus on quality construction featuring updated HD lens coatings, circular aperture designs, and handsome, durable all-metal barrels.
Canon has announced four new additions to their PowerShot digital camera lineup. In addition to updated features, three of these four cameras, including the PowerShot G16, are now providing a built-in Wi-Fi connection for easy image sharing. Also, a new EF-S mount lens has been introduced.
