When Apple released the first version of Aperture back in 2005, the industry took notice. By combining professional-grade photo editing with an extensive file management system, the software became an instant hit with smaller studios and photojournalists. Back then, almost all editing was done in Photoshop. Creating individual layers to control shadows, mid-tones, and highlights was industry standard.
Designed for use with Nikon DX-format (APS-C) imaging sensors, the AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 85/3.5G ED VR covers the angle-of-view (18º) of a 127.5mm short-telephoto lens on a full-frame (24x36mm) DSLR. The new lens focuses down to 10.8" (0.27 m) for sharp, life-size (1:1) reproduction of your subject.
To get to the Camera Department at the B&H SuperStore in midtown Manhattan you have to take the stairs or escalator up to the second floor. What greets you at the top of the steps is a wall-to-wall array of photo gear. Across the tops of the wraparound display cases are the signature signage of Nikon, Canon, Olympus, Pentax, Sony, Leica, Panasonic, and others. But wait (a voice in your head says)... his is only the Used Department.The new cameras are located around the bend in a humongous area about 6 times larger. Welcome to B&H, the largest camera store on the planet.
The EOS-1D Mark IV represents Canon's flagship DSLR for creating professional photo and video content. Though nearly identical in form to its predecessor, the Mark IV boasts an expanse of new features and refinements for discerning image makers. With an all-new 16.1 megapixel sensor, expanded ISO sensitivity, 10 frames per second continuous shooting mode, advanced AF system, and powerful HD video capabilities, this workhorse continues the full-featured legacy of the EOS-1 series.
High Definition Video recording has redefined the digital SLR and opened the door to an exciting new world of imaging possibilities. Journalists, wedding photographers, and other professionals have embraced this technology-expanding services and enjoying higher profit returns. Television shows such as Saturday Night Live and Dollhouse have employed video-enabled DSLRs for their unobtrusive form factor and unique imaging qualities. In the coming months, commercial spots, independent productions, and even feature films will showcase the amazing video of these powerful new cameras.
The proliferation of hybrid photo/video systems is gaining ground in almost all video markets. From weddings, to independent and broadcast production, the technology is ubiquitous. If you're shooting HD with any of today's video-enabled DSLRs, it's easy to see why. Large sensors, high ISO sensitivity, and lens selection are just a few of the draws to this new wave of content creation. However, these camera systems are just beginning to develop a series of standards, and are not without their challenges. From the Canon EOS-1D Mark IV to the Pentax K-7, the proper capture of usable audio is one such challenge.
