B&H Photo / Amazon

The L-mount version of the Sigma “28-70mm F2.8 DG DN” has 16 elements in 12 groups (2 FLD glass, 2 SLD glass, 3 aspherical lenses), and the shortest is 0.19m (wide-angle end) /0.38m ( (Telephoto end), maximum shooting magnification 1: 3.3 (wide-angle end) /1: 4.6 (telephoto end), filter diameter 67mm, size φ72.2 x 101.5mm, weight 470g, $ 899

Press Release
Design based on SIGMA’s Art line, with the same uncompromising optical performance
The optical design of the SIGMA 28-70mm F2.8 DG DN | Contemporary is based on the 24-70mm F2.8 DG DN | Art, which is renowned for its outstanding optical performance throughout its zoom range. True to the Contemporary line’s core concept, the 28-70mm F2.8 DG DN | Contemporary was developed to offer the right balance of performance and portability, and as such, this large-aperture standard zoom delivers outstanding image quality that rivals Art line lenses in a body light enough for day-to-day use. Building on state-of-the-art technology, the 28-70mm F2.8 DG DN | Contemporary has an advanced optical design that includes three aspherical, two FLD, and two SLD elements. Despite using fewer elements in total than the 24-70mm F2.8 DG DN | Art, the design results in a thorough correction of axial chromatic aberration and sagittal coma aberration, which cannot be corrected in-camera, allowing users to create images that are uniformly sharp from the center to the edges of the frame. Along with its anti-ghosting design, the use of Super Multi-Layer Coating and Nano Porous Coating means well-controlled flare for high-contrast results in backlit conditions. It also features a water and oil repellant coating on the front side of the lens. In short, the SIGMA 28-70mm F2.8 DG DN | Contemporary combines all of the key optical features required of a large-aperture standard zoom lens, which are essential for photographing a wide variety of subjects in a range of shooting conditions.

Introducing the Wireless GO II – Next Generation Wireless Audio From RØDE
The world’s smallest and first truly wireless microphone has been reborn. Meet the RØDE Wireless GO II, a new ultra-compact and extremely versatile dual channel wireless microphone system. Offering the same pocket-sized form factor and professional sound quality as the best-selling Wireless GO, with a host of incredible new features making it even more powerful and flexible, this is next generation wireless audio from RØDE.

The original Wireless GO, released in 2019, revolutionised audio for content creators. With its innovative form factor, unique clip ‘n’ go versatility, and in-built microphone offering truly wireless recording for the first time, it changed the way creators captured sound for video.

The Wireless GO II offers all of these features and much more, including dual channel recording, universal compatibility with cameras, mobile devices and computers, extended range and improved transmission stability, and on-board recording capabilities. Wireless audio has changed again.

KEY FEATURES OF THE WIRELESS GO II:

  • Dual channel wireless microphone system – record two sound sources simultaneously or use as a single channel wireless microphone
  • All-new Series IV 2.4GHz digital transmission with 128-bit encryption – delivers an extended range of up to 200m (line of sight), optimised for extremely stable operation in dense RF environments
  • 3.5mm analog TRS output, USB-C and iOS digital audio output – universal compatibility with cameras, mobile devices and computers
  • On-board recording capability – record over 24 hours of audio direct to each transmitter as a failsafe against dropouts and other audio issues
  • Ability to switch between mono or stereo recording modes – record each channel separately or combine them for ultimate flexibility in post-production
  • Flexible gain control – three-stage pad, expandable to 10-stage pad
  • Safety channel – records a second channel at -20dB as a backup in case the main channel distorts
  • Complete control over all features and functions via the RØDE Central app
  • In-built rechargeable lithium-ion batteries – up to 7 hours battery life, plus a power saver mode
  • Designed and made in RØDE’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Sydney, Australia

“The original Wireless GO was a gamechanger,” says RØDE CEO Damien Wilson. “It truly revolutionised sound capture for everyone from vloggers to business professionals producing content while working from home. The form factor and feature set had never been seen before and many have attempted – and failed ­– to replicate it since.”

“The Wireless GO II is a huge leap forward in terms of useability and versatility, while retaining all the elements that made the first edition such a success. It represents RØDE’s mission to innovate and continue evolving our product lines, always with creators in mind. The Wireless GO II is once again going to change the way people record audio for their content.” Read More »
