Photokina 2016: What’s New in Imaging at the Big Show? Part 2

You know that cellphone cameras are seen as serious imaging devices when Zeiss, the venerable German optical master, is rolling out a whole line of high-performance lenses for them. Zeiss, in partnership with ExoLens, had already released its first one, the Zeiss Mutar 0.6 Asph T* wide angle (equivalent to an 18mm on full frame) for the iPhone, in June.

Fujifilm Jumps up to Medium Format with GFX 50S Camera System

Leapfrogging the more conventional full-frame formats of most companies, Fujifilm has made a daring leap into the medium format realm with the introduction of its GFX camera system. The star of this show is obviously the large 43.8 x 32.9mm 51.4MP CMOS sensor at the heart of the GFX 50S Mirrorless Camera.

Along with this camera, Fujifilm developed the G mount with a short flange distance of 26.7 mm, meaning your older medium format lenses can be adapted.

Much like I wish I were the kind of traveler who only packed one bag, I wish I were the kind of photographer who only used one camera. Instead, I always have two or three bags and two or three cameras. Despite my best intentions, I can’t seem to go on a trip with just one of each.

Recommended Cameras for Newborn and Baby Photography

Skill and patience aside, if you want to capture successful photographs of babies and newborns, it helps to have a camera with features that enable you to capture what are more often than not fleeting, unrepeatable moments in time.

Podcast: Fujifilm versus Sony

With deference to Linda Richman, today’s podcast offers its version of the Coffee Talk skit from Saturday Night Live—Fujifilm is for Artists/Sony is for Pros… discuss! We realize, of course, that any camera—used well—can be for professionals and for artists and that artists can be pros and vice versa; we’re not so naïve as to think otherwise.

Every year, B&H hosts the OPTIC Imaging Conference, a four-day event showcasing the best nature, landscape, and travel photography.

In the Field: Photographing Duke Riley’s 'Fly By Night' with the Fujifilm X-Pro2

Note to fashion photographers everywhere: Pigeons make horrible models. Even with the snappy new Fujifilm X-Pro2 digital camera, I was constantly frustrated by the inability for even the most lethargic pigeon to hold his or her pose for more than a fraction of a second.

In the Field with the Fujifilm X70
