In the following video, B&H Photo’s Steven Gladstone meets up with Ted Sim, from Aputure, on the NAB 2015 trade show floor for a hands-on look at the new DEC Wireless Remote Adapter. Sure to excite owners of E-mount or MFT-mount cameras, such as the Sony a7S or Panasonic GH4, the adapter allows you to mount and control focus and aperture of EF and EF-S lenses wirelessly. The adapter works by communicating directly with the internal autofocus motor in the EF lens, providing smooth focus pulls and aperture changes using an included wireless rocker handle. A clamp is also provided for attaching it to a tripod pan, as well as a hard case to store all of the components. To further excite shooters, Ted Sim also hints at a future focal-length-reducing version for shooters who want to maintain more of the native angle of view of their full-frame lenses on cameras with APS-C or MFT-sized sensors. Please check back for pricing and availability.

Join Kelly Mena, of B&H Photo, as she explains the basic principles of depth of field in photography. Mena defines depth of field and explains the distinction between its deep and shallow variations—the former rendering everything from subject to background in sharp focus, the latter rendering the subject in sharp focus and the background soft and out of focus. Mena discusses the variables you can use to control depth of field in your images: aperture, focal length, and camera-to-subject distance. She also explains how you can use the ISO and shutter-speed settings of your camera to determine the optimal aperture for the shot you want to take, which will ultimately determine the character of depth of field in your image.
