First samples from the new Nikon 70-200mm F2.8E FL ED VR

DP Review News - Thu, 02/02/2017 - 12:00
ISO 100, 1/400 sec at F4.5. Photo by Dan Bracaglia

The Nikkor 70-200mm F2.8E FL ED VR is the third version of Nikon's workhorse telezoom. Most of us on staff have spent a bit of time with the previous two versions, and the latest iteration features a new optical design, improved VR and an electromagnetic diaphragm.

We have not had it in the office long but the impression already is that it's both impressively sharp wide open - but particularly by F4 - and incredibly well-stabilized. Owners of previous versions of the lens will be impressed at the decreased focus breathing, and the incredibly short focus distances that makes tight portraits easily at almost any focal length.

In short, it's going to appeal to a wide range of photographers. We'll be sure to add additional images to this gallery once we've had more time with the lens, but for now take a look at some initial samples.

Throwback Thursday: doing the twist with the Nikon Coolpix 950

DP Review News - Thu, 02/02/2017 - 11:00

Few cameras in the early days of consumer digital photography are as legendary as the Nikon Coolpix 950. This graphic pulled from the DPReview archives says it all:

In case you're wondering, the answer was 'yes'. It earned a 'Highly Recommended' award, with site founder Phil Askey calling it an 'important camera at an important time for digital photography.'

The thing about the Coolpix 950 that grabbed the most attention was, of course, its rotating lens (or was it the body that rotated?). It wasn't Nikon's first camera to use that design: the original Coolpix 900 has that honor. 

The lens was reasonably fast (F2.6-F4), though its equivalent focal length of 38-115mm didn't make it a great choice for wide-angle shooters (and forget about selfies which, thankfully, didn't become a fad for another 15 years or so.) Nikon did offer accessory lenses for the 950: a telephoto adapter that doubled the focal length, a wide-angle adapter that dropped it to 24-72mm and a fisheye adapter with a 183° field-of-view.

The CP950 had a whopping 1/2", 2.1 Megapixel CCD, which saved those 1600 x 1200 images to a CompactFlash card. Nikon made a lot of noise about the camera's autofocus system, boasting that it had 4,746 steps, allowing it to be 'unerringly accurate.' The CP950 could shoot continuously at a speedy 1.5 fps and featured Best Shot Selector, a feature which Nikon cameras offered for many years, which took three shots in a row and picked the sharpest one. Another feature that was a big deal then was automatic file numbering.

The Coolpix 950 had a magnesium-alloy frame and feels as solid as a modern-era enthusiast camera.  As you can see, it had a built-in flash. What you can't see is that it also had a flash sync terminal, and Nikon sold a flash bracket for off-camera Speedlights.

As with most cameras those days, it had an optical viewfinder along with a 2", 130k-dot LCD that doesn't look very good in 2017. The physical controls and menus may have been competitive then, but they're baffling now.

The CP950 was priced at $899 back in 1999, which is just under $1300 in 2017. That would make this Coolpix one of the most expensive fixed-lens cameras on the market. While it's hard to imaging paying that now, back in '99 the Coolpix 950 was definitely worth the price.

Q is for quality: share your artwork now

For this month’s art project, curator of Emma Hamilton: Seduction and Celebrity Quintin Colville invites you to share your artwork on the theme of quality

In her own time, Emma Hamilton was never considered a “woman of Quality” – the term often used to describe the elite in 18th-century Britain. Born into poverty in rural Cheshire in 1765, the daughter of a blacksmith, society’s gatekeepers never considered her one of the club. History has also been cruel, usually remembering Emma only as a temptress and seductress who won the heart of the great naval hero Horatio Nelson. Caught between social prejudice on one side and misogyny on the other, Emma had the odds stacked against her.

However, the narrow confines of “quality” could never encompass Emma’s astonishing story – one of the most remarkable female lives of the era. While still in her teens, she rose from domestic service to become the muse of the great portrait painter George Romney. Her gifts for capturing theatrical expressions and personas shone still more brightly in Naples, where she lived with the British envoy Sir William Hamilton. Known as the “Attitudes”, Emma perfected this new performance art, and became famous from Madrid to St Petersburg. She also became the close friend of Maria Carolina, queen of Naples and daughter of the Habsburg empress Maria Theresa. Together they were deeply involved in the political and military machinations of the French revolutionary war. It was through these state affairs that her own affair with Nelson would later begin.

Studying high-res satellite images on your lunch break can help uncover new archaeology sites

DP Review News - Thu, 02/02/2017 - 08:30
You gotta start somewhere – GlobalXplorer participants' first mission is to look for pits that signal looting.

If you've ever dreamed of becoming an archaeologist, you might want to take a look at GlobalXplorer: a browser-based app that trains ordinary citizens to analyze high-resolution satellite imagery for signs of looting and previously unknown sites. It's the brainchild of Dr. Sarah Parcak, a National Geographic Fellow and Space Archaeologist (really!) whose techniques have identified 17 potential pyramids and 3,100 potential settlements in Egypt.

Dr. Parcak won 2016's $1 million TED prize to turn her vision for citizen-powered, satellite-based archaeology into a reality. Launched this week, GlobalXplorer is available to anyone with an internet connection. Participants register to the site, watch a training video and get started by looking for signs of potential looting in satellite images. There's a 'gamification' factor too – you can level up once you've gained enough experience and start looking for the really exciting stuff, like signs of currently unknown archaeological sites. 

GlobalXplorer's imagery is provided by DigitalGlobe's commercial satellites courtesy of a customized version of the Tomnod crowd-sourcing platform. For now, the journey starts in Peru, where citizen archaeologists are examining 200,000 square km of land. If you'd like to channel your inner Indiana Jones, head to the GlobalXplorer website and get started.

Priceless memories come at a price with Lexar's new $1700 512GB CFast card

DP Review News - Thu, 02/02/2017 - 08:01

Memory manufacturer Lexar has announced it will double the capacity of its 3500x CFast memory card this quarter taking the storage capability to a massive 512GB. The Lexar Professional 3500x CFast 2.0 card will offer write speeds of up to 445MB/s, but will cost an equally impressive $1699.99/£1732.99. The company says that the card is designed to be used by movie makers, especially those using memory-intensive techniques such as super-high frame rates for slow motion footage and those shooting in 4K resolution and in Raw formats.

The card will obviously record stills as well as video, but the attraction is the length of uninterrupted footage that can be recorded. Stills photographers are likely to be better off buying smaller versions of the card which cost less per GB. At $675 the 256GB version is less than half the price for half the capacity, though buying 16 32GB cards works out more expensive and the write speed is slower.

The new card has a maximum read speed of 525MB/s, so allows users to copy data from it to another drive very quickly. Lexar supplies a ‘lifetime’ copy of its Image Rescue recovery software that it claims can bring back data even from corrupted cards, as well as a limited lifetime warranty and technical support.

For more information see the Lexar website.

Decoding Beyoncé's pregnancy pic: a remix of rococo and Flemish influences

It references European decadence, religious iconography and Latin American funerary traditions, painting her as a modern symbol of virtue and authority

Today, on the first day of Black History Month in the US, Beyoncé announced on Instagram that she’s pregnant – and with twins, no less. It was a bright spot on the otherwise grim landscape of the past week and a half in news. The photo is forward-thinking but with traces of historical art traditions from the past – conjuring an appealing remix of rococo excesses, Flemish portraiture and Latin American funerary symbols.

In the frame Beyoncé is seen kneeling at an altar, cradling her belly with one hand while she keeps the other hand (which, interestingly, doesn’t show a wedding ring) posed slightly above. She is shrouded by a nearly sheer, tinted-tulle veil and is wearing satin blue underwear with a subtle, petaly ruffle. Since the medieval period, the Virgin Mary has often been depicted wearing shades of blue, a color used to signify virtue and authority. The bright, cerulean blue background reinforces this association and might even take it a step further.

Adorama introduces Canon RT radio controlled TTL studio head and hotshoe flash

DP Review News - Wed, 01/02/2017 - 22:19
$(document).ready(function() { SampleGalleryV2({"containerId":"embeddedSampleGallery_9533390039","galleryId":"9533390039","isEmbeddedWidget":true,"standalone":false,"selectedImageIndex":0,"startInCommentsView":false,"isMobile":false}) });

Camera store Adorama has announced that it is to introduce a new line of monoblock studio heads that are designed to work directly with Canon’s RT radio TTL flash system. The company claims that the Orlit Rovelight RT 610 TTL Wireless Monolight, with its RT system built-in, is the first of its kind. The head can also be used with all Canon and Nikon DSLRs using the Orlit TR-611C and TR-612N TTL Transceivers that have been launched alongside the head. These transceivers allow TTL control of the head even with Nikon cameras.

The Orilt Rovelight RT 610 TTL is a 600Ws head with a guide number of 201ft/61m @ ISO 100 that features modes for Canon’s ETTL and Nikon’s iTTL metering systems. It is powered by a rechargeable 6000mAh lithium ion battery pack that Adorama claims is good for 450 full-power flashes per charge. The longest recycle time will be 2.5 seconds at full power, but the head offers output settings down to 1/256th in 1/3EV steps across the nine-stop range. There is said to be a variance of only 150 K across the output range from the standard color temperature of 5500 K, and a high speed sync mode allows for shutter speeds of up to 1/8000sec. The modeling bulb is a 20W LED that has a 3200 K tungsten color balance and three brightness levels.

The head accepts Bowens S-type modifiers and has an integrated umbrella shaft slot. The flash control system can be divided into five groups, while 16 channels are provided to avoid interference with other systems in the vicinity.

The new studio head can also be controlled by or work alongside the company’s Orlit RT-600C TTL Speedlite. This new flash unit can sit in the camera’s hotshoe to act as a master or it can join a group of other RT flashes as a slave. The unit has a guide number of 160ft/48m @ ISO 100.

The new studio head, flash unit and transceivers will ship later this month but can be ordered now on the Adorama website.

  • Orlit Rovelight RT 610 TTL Wireless Monolight - $699.95
  • Orlit RT-600C TTL Speedlite - $169.95
  • Orlit TR-611C Transceiver - $69.95
  • TR-612N TTL Transceiver - $69.95

The Orlit RT-600C TTL Speedlite for Canon is now available for preorder and retails for $169.95 USD.

Orlit TR-611C TTL Transceiver & Orlit TR-612N TTL Transceivers:

Designed for Canon and Nikon cameras, respectively, adding 980ft/300m of remote lighting freedom. Using an Orlit transceiver on the camera’s hot shoe, Canon and Nikon photographers can easily adjust the exposure for the Orlit Rovelight RT610 TTL Monolight, while the Canon TR-611C adds control to the Orlit RT600C Speedlite.

This TTL wireless flash transmitter from Orlit can trigger one or more receivers for studio flash and speedlights. Featuring direct group access, multi-group triggering, stable signal transmission, and sensitive reaction, photographers can achieve wide flexibility and control over their strobist setups. And with the Orlit TTL Transceivers, high speed synchronization is available for most Orlit camera flashes, with a max speed up to 1/8000s.

The Orlit TR-611C & TR-612N TTL Transceivers are now available for preorder and will each retail for $69.95 USD.

Designed with Users in Mind
The Orlit TR-611C and TR-612N Transceivers feature an efficiently designed user interface with a clear LCD display, simplified but extensive menu system, and are graced by soft menu touch control buttons for all options. Future technologies are firmware updated through the USB port.

The Future of TTL Flash is Now
Coming soon, the Orlit smartphone app seamlessly integrates the latest in wireless command into studio life. A rich array of screens give touch control to the myriad of Orlit features without going near the set, from the convenience of a smartphone.

Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 teardown reveals what makes the camera tick

DP Review News - Wed, 01/02/2017 - 19:46

The folks at All About Circuits have published a teardown of the Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 camera, revealing a glimpse at the components found within. Disassembly is simple, and mostly involves removing a series of screws, after which point DIYers are presented with 'a surprising amount of circuitry.'

Within the camera, All About Circuits discovered a micro-controller, DC buck converter, and a pulse transformer, as well as a xenon flash tube, a light emitter and sensor, and a couple of transformers. This was a surprise to the publication’s Mark Hughes, who said, ‘I expected to find a flash charging and firing circuit similar to the type found in a disposable camera.’

We can forgive All About Circuits for calling the camera the 'Insta- X Mini 8,' because we love peering into the inner workings of cameras we wouldn't have the nerve to dissect ourselves. Details about the hardware are available in the full teardown here.

Apple emphasizes iPhone 7 low light capabilities in "One Night" ad campaign

DP Review News - Wed, 01/02/2017 - 19:11

Apple's 'Shot on iPhone' ads have been a familiar sight on billboards and on TV for quite some time now. For the latest round of advertising Apple is now focusing on the iPhone 7's low light capabilities. The campaign's title is 'One Night,' because all images were taken by a group of photographers around the world on the night of November 5th, 2016.

The group captured life around them from dusk to dawn, only using the iPhone's camera. Like most smartphone cameras, with its small image sensor the mobile device has a distinct disadvantage compared to DSLRs and other system cameras in low light, but with its fast F1.8 aperture, improved optical image stabilization and a clever multi-frame mode, it's a step into the right direction and a noticeable improvement over the previous iPhone 6 generation. 

You can read and view the samples in our own comprehensive review of the iPhone 7 Plus or view a selection of the campaign images in full size in our gallery above.

Digital camera inventors awarded with Queen Elizabeth Prize

DP Review News - Wed, 01/02/2017 - 18:26
Dr. Tompsett, Prof. Teranishi and Prof. Fossum at the ceremony, image: Queen Elizabeth Prize

This year's 1 million Pound Queen Elizabeth Prize has recognized the work of some of the key scientists in the creation of digital imaging sensors. The award is shared by British-born Dr Mike Tompsett, Professor Nobukazu Teranishi from Japan, and Professor Eric Fossum and George Smith from the US.

George Smith and Willard Boyle, who are now both deceased, first had the idea for CCD sensors at Bell Labs in 1969, but it was their colleague Dr. Tompsett, who saw the potential of the technology in imaging. The first digital color photo, of Tompsett's wife Margaret, appeared on the cover of Electronics Magazine. 

Professor Teranishi is the inventor of the pinned photodiode (PPD), which is a more efficient photodiode than previous variants. He undertook the work at NEC Corporation in Japan in 1980.

Eric Fossum worked in the 1990s at the NASA and Caltech's Jet Propulsion Lab. His goal was to miniaturize digital cameras to reduce the payload of spacecraft. His work resulted in the development of CMOS sensors which can be found in most modern consumer digital cameras.

Digital imaging, together with other forms of digital technology, has transformed the world, and every day billions of digital images are captured by billions of devices, ranging from professional TV cameras to tiny imaging units in autonomous vehicles. At the time of their inventions the scientists might not have foreseen the scale of the impact of the technology but they are certainly more than deserving of this year's award.

Kia LaBeija's best photograph: an HIV check-up in a prom dress

‘I’ve had the virus all my life – and this is what I see in my head when I go to the doctor’

This image is taken from my 24 series, a collection of self-portraits exploring what it’s like growing up with HIV. I was born with the virus – I’ve never known life without it. I wanted to explore how this can feel, how it can look, how living with HIV has differed from what I expected. All the photos are glamorous, very cinematic and theatrical, as if I’m on stage or in a film. It’s a kind of re-imagination: what my life might have been like had things been different.

I took the shot in 2015, but it had been in my head for a long time. I’m with my doctor, whose surgery I have visited regularly since the age of four. He checks my blood and monitors my numbers to make sure I’m healthy. The photo shows what I see in my head when I go for check-ups. I suppose it’s a kind of fantasy. The dress is the one I wore to my school prom. The colour, the glamour, the juxtaposition – there’s an element of fashion photography, something that has always inspired me.

I'm sitting on the same bed my mother sat on – which she no longer sits on
