The Schneider Optics booth is minimal, but it has a couple of cool things set up. First is the iPro Lens system for iPhones. It uses a compact case, with a bayonet-style mount to attach lenses. And it looks nice enough to stay on your phone at all times. It adds some new capabilities to your phone with fisheye, macro, and telephoto options available.
Fujifilm has been busy expanding their X-Series lineup of digital cameras, so we caught up with company representative Kayce Baker to talk about the new X-E2 and XQ1. The X-E2 is a mirrorless body that features a 16.3MP APS-C X-Trans II CMOS sensor. The XQ1 is a compact, pocketable camera with a 12MP 2/3" X-Trans CMOS sensor. Both models feature built-in Wi-Fi for easy file sharing.
David Flores from B&H talks to Richard Schleuning from Zeiss about the new Otus f/1.4 55mm and Touit f/2.8 50 M lenses. The Otus 55mm is already available for pre-order, while the Touit lens shown in this video is a prototype that features a Sony E-mount.
Connecting to external Wi-Fi networks and simultaneous streaming to multiple devices is coming soon in a new CamRanger firmware update. While the wireless capabilities already featured things like focus peaking and time-lapse programming, this update brings impressive new features. The most significant, in my opinion, is using multiple wireless devices. Using a single master device for control, you can now add others, enabling clients and friends to watch the preview image. And using a Wi-Fi network can increase the CamRanger's range.
If you’ve ever risked taking a photo at ISOs higher than 6400, you've probably had experience with trying to remove all the digital noise that crept into your photo. DxO's new PRIME noise reduction has solved this dilemma for you.
Welcome to PhotoPlus! Of course, one of the first things I wanted to see was the new Leica C. It features built-in Wi-Fi connectivity to go along with the Image Shuttle app for smartphones. And I have to say it worked really well, providing full control over camera settings.
Just a couple of blocks from the B&H SuperStore in Manhattan, the 2013 PDN PhotoPlus International Conference + Expo is set to kick off. We stopped by with our cameras to get a quick look at the show floor on Wednesday afternoon, but the real action starts on Thursday. Join us right here at B&H Insights, where our writers will be posting their impressions of the show, our video team will be posting segments as they walk the floor, and our social media team will be sharing on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. If you can't be in New York City for PhotoPlus, this destination is the next best thing. Keep it locked at B&H Insights, and have a great show!
