Voigtlander 110mm Announced

Voigtlander 110mm f/2.5 Announcement Details

The Voigtländer MACRO APO-LANTHAR 110mm f2.5 is a 1:1 macro lens designed exclusively for full frame Sony E-mount cameras. The APO-LANTHAR designation is given to especially high performance lenses in the Voigtländer lens lineup, with APO being derived from the apochromatic optical design. A need for apochromatic optical designs that reduce the longitudinal chromatic aberrations of the three primary colours (RGB) of light to practically zero arose with the increasing popularity of colour film. Now, with the current range of high-resolution digitals sensors, this need for extremely high-level control of chromatic aberrations is even more pertinent than when film changed from monochrome to colour in the middle of the 20th century. So rather than just being for already solved old technology, apochromatic optical designs are indeed a subject requiring serious consideration in the digital age.

Retaining a similar form factor to the highly regarded Voigtländer MACRO APO-LANTHAR 65mm F2.0 Aspherical released in August 2017, this lens covers the full frame image area, and achieves a maximum image reproduction of 1:1 life size without the need for attachments.

In order to ensure subjects from minimum focus distance to infinity are captured with extremely high image quality, a 3-group floating mechanism is employed to adjust three optical groups.

Another attractive feature is the ability to create images with a strong out-of-focus ‘bokeh’ effect, made possible by the 110mm focal length and F2.5 maximum aperture. This lens is a manual focus and manual aperture design, but also features electrical contacts for storing exif data.

Furthermore, the lens is installed with a distance encoder to enable support for 5-axis image stabilisation on bodies with this feature, by providing distance to subject information used to compensate for camera shake. Focus peaking while manual focusing is also supported. Read More »

Nissin Announces New MG10

Nissin Announces New MG10

Advanced 2.4GHz Wireless TTL Strobe
New England Imaging Dist. (NEID), the North American distributor of Nissin Digital Products, in conjunction with Nissin Japan Limited, has introduced the new MG10, an advanced NAS (Nissin Air System) 2.4GHz wireless strobe for both on-camera and studio photography. This new innovative flash will be available July 2018.

Designed as a multi-purpose flash, the Nissin MG10 can take you from the fast pace of a model runway shoot, to an outdoor scene where high power for HSS shooting is a must. Whether you are working quickly with the flash on camera or creating stunning lighting effects with off camera flash or in a studio setting, the Nissin MG10 has you covered.

With a guide number of 262 feet (80 meters) and 165 watt seconds, this high-power advanced MG10 strobe is the latest addition to the award-winning Nissin Air System, a proprietary wireless TTL communication system developed by Nissin for 2.4GHz radio transmission.

The hand grip can be used to mount the flash on either the left or right side of the camera with height level adjustment. There’s also a shutter release button on the handle and standard ¼-inch, 20 adapter under the flash head for mounting to a light stand. Every MG10 includes a magnesium quick release mounting “L” bracket, AA battery magazine (batteries are not included), Li-Ion battery magazine, ball head, filter holder and wide-angle diffuser. It also fully supports Air 10s and Air 1 wireless commanders. 

The Nissin Digital patented removable external motorized zoom head allows the MG10 to zoom from 24~200mm, to 18mm with diffuser. With the Air 10s Commander, the zoom head can be controlled manually or set to synchronize with the lens focal length even when the strobe is used off camera. Other features include:
