Meyer Optik Görlitz is back thanks to OPC Optics and they hope to not make the same mistakes as the company that originally tried to revive the brand. So far they have released two press releases, which you can read below, but the second one is probably the most interesting since it includes:
Godox will release the Witstro AD200 PRO soon according to Adorama’s listing, which Photorumors spotted. Adorama also listed the Godox V1 early too, which you can read about here. Godox has already released an AD400 Pro Witstro and AD600Pro Witstro so the AD200Pro Witstro will round out the lineup.
Fujifilm has moved into videography in a big way and they were the first camera manufacturer to offer major new features via Firmware update so should they consider giving us access to waveforms while shooting photos? I kind of like the idea, but have only used waveforms in Final Cut Pro for editing. This might be easier for a company like Panasonic to add since they already have most of the code needed to implement the feature, but I could easily see Fujifilm beating them to the punch on this one.
V1.17 firmware mainly improved the issues as below,AdaptersOSX Download links:Windows Download links:
Adorama has the new Godox V1 listed on their site as a Flashpoint flash and B&H Photo should have it soon under the Godox name. Pre-orders should start soon and there are details about their latest flash below. It looks very similar to Profoto A1 but should be significantly cheaper.
Many have been waiting for RRS to release a quality L-Plate for the Fujifilm GFX50R, but Kirk Enterprise Solutions beat them to market. The Fujifilm GFX50R is still waiting for quite a few accessories to be released since it is a completely new body type, but from what I have heard this L-Plate is a quality product and you can purchase it today directly from Kirk.
Fujifilm’s Eye AF has improved a lot and will continue getting better, but how does it compare to the new compares Nikon and Canon? What do you guys think? I would like to know more about the AF-C settings used for this studio test and a natural light comparison would be interesting to see too.
The Fujifilm X-A5 is a solid performer when it comes to PDR and it actually performs almost equal with the much more expensive Sony a6500. I hope we get to see how Fujifilm’s APS-C cameras compare to the new Sony a6400 and future Sony a7000/a6700 soon. If you want to take a closer result at Photons to Photos’s data you can do so here.
