In pictures: The latest around imaging technologies at Dslr camera & Photo Imaging Show 2018
The yearly CP+ exhibition is for us again! As always, it offers a glance at what camera manufacturers have already been working on for the new year, as well as a chance to play with some of the most current equipment out on the market.
Of course Kodak is at the show, and they have got multiple units in their latest EOS M50 available for trial period shooting. As we first announced here, the EOS M50 is Canon’s first mirrorless camera to do 4K online video media, and the first to get the Digic 8 processor.
Also out on display, could be the 470EX-AI speedlight. We’ve also covered this particular previously at the local introduction, and there was certainly an abundance of interest at the show as well. As a recap, the flash head automatically pivots to give you the best angle to get bounce flash when you two times tap the shutter button. Hassle-free, isn’t it?
DJI has their newest Mavic Air out on display. With a weight just 430g, this is significantly lighter as opposed to Mavic Pro, and also folds all the way down for easy storage. Also, it comes with 8GB of internal storage devices so you can get up and running straight away.
There seemed to be plenty of interest in the OSMO Mobile phone 2 too. As we brought up in our earlier news coverage, this was just launched at CES and comes with an improved an electric battery system for longer battery life. It is usually cheaper to boot!
Of course, Fujifilm incorporates a huge booth at the site way too. This display at the front reveals their entire line-up, and it covers everything from point-and-shoots for you to medium format to broadcast lenses!
Of system, the star of the exhibit is the newly released X-H1, and at this point you can get a close look at the essential workings of the camera. For additional information about this camera, head over to the first looks piece!
Venus Optics can also be at the show, and it has been great to see that they’re ultimately increasing support for alternative mounts with their new lenses. As you can see, the new 9mm f/2.8 Zero-D for APS-C cameras comes in Fuji, Canon plus Sony mounts.
Now here’s a notable sight. This should be every product Nikon can be retailing at the moment, from lens to cameras to binoculars. Certainly a wide selection to choose from!
Nikon’s big feature product is still this D850 – and with good reason. The item remains the most versatile option available for Nikon photographers, and as the installation implies, can take extreme temperature. Click here to read our review of the camera.
No new cameras regarding Olympus this time round, but they did showcase some very handsome limited edition versions of the OM-D E-M1 Level II and PEN-F cameras. Black and gold seems to be total combination here.
Steampunk meets PEN-F. Granted how popular retro style is, we do think Olympus would have ready buyers if they ever published versions of these for retail price.
The newly released Lumix G9 is known as any G9 Pro here in Japan, and has now an incredibly fast capture of up to 60fps (solo focus before capture). Add to that Panasonic’s Dual I.S process that combines in-body and in-lens OIS, and you have one impressive camera.
The SD Quattro is one of the latest video cameras from Sigma. It’s got a Up to 29.5MP APS-C sized Foveon sensor matched with regards to their TRUE III processor for the most powerful results. In SFD (Super Aspect) mode, the camera simultaneously normally requires seven captures at various exposures in X3I format, allowing for graphics with greater dynamic array.
The newly launched A7 III was at the show, and there seemed to be of course a long line of consumers waiting to get their hands on the camera. It’s got a brand new BSI sensor and works on the new Z-series battery, giving it a battery pack life of some 610 shots using one charge. Find out more here!
Another really popular station was the particular studio scene station the place Sony had a model lit by multiple HVL-F60M flashes paired with a FA-WRR1 wireless receiver. This set-up enables you to easily adjust the power of each and every flash from a single FA-WRC1M controller installed on the camera’s hotshoe.
If you’re into astrophotography, the Unitec SWAT-350 should be of interest. This is a automated single way axis tracker that lets you easily capture super star trails, sunsets, and more by simply compensating for the earth’s spin.
Of course, Zeiss was at the display too, but apart from its full range of lenses, furthermore they had demo units with their VR ONE Plus headset available. This provides a 100o field of view, and you can use it with spectacles in too, so that’s certainly a bonus.
