Leica’s Triple Barrage & Apple Special: The Leica M, M-E, and S

Leica released not one, but three high-end cameras in Photokina, the M-E, the M, and the new S. Out of the three, the new M is the most revolutionary since it is the first Leica M series to use a CMOS sensor instead of a CCD sensor. The M-E is a stripped down version of the older M9. The S is the new and improved medium format camera. Finally, Jonathan Ives of Apple is designing a one-off limited ed. of the M for charity

Pentax Announced K-5 II and Non-AA filter K-5 IIs DSLRs!

Pentax announced the follow up to their popular flagship K-5 DSLR and released not only the K-5 II, but a also a version that does not have an anti-aliasing filter built in, the K-5 IIs. The K-5 II and the K-5 IIs both sport a 16.28MP APS-C format CMOS sensor and an improved 11 Point SAFOX X autofocus system that has a working range from -3 EV to 18 EV. And this being a Pentax, the K-5 II and IIs are fully weather-sealed, dust-proof, and cold-resistant. And just like the K-5, both II and IIs also have in-body shake reduction (SR) stabilization that should give you a couple of extra stops.

The client also wanted the lighting to look natural, so the trick here is to add just enough ambient lighting to balance out the three Einstein monolight strobes that I used to light this image.

Sony to Develop Full Frame NEX Camera!

It is only inevitable that the next revolution in MILC (Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Camera) will be a full-frame mirrorless camera, or at least one that doesn’t have the brand Leica attached to it. There is a good chance that the full-frame sensor will be a variant of the Sony-derived Nikon D800 sensor. If this last speculation is going to be true, then the full-frame NEX should be a very strong contender in the semi-pro market. Stay tuned for more news!
