Am gasit un site dragut unde ne povestesc cum sa ne facem noi singurei obiective Tilt-Shift. DIY la el acasa, eu o sa incerc 😀 ca nu pare foarte greu iar materialele folosite nu-s asa de greu de gasit.

Uite si un filmulet facut cu un obiectiv “tunat”.

Au facut-o si pe asta, dar nu avem noi obiective/body-uri asa de mari :).

August 31, 2010 – Canon Inc. announced today that it has successfully developed the world’s largest*1 CMOS image sensor, with a chip size measuring 202 x 205 mm. The sensor is capable of capturing images in one one-hundredth the amount of light required by a professional-model digital SLR camera due to its expanded size enabling greater light-gathering capabilities. Potential applications for the new high-sensitivity CMOS sensor include the video recording of stars in the night sky and nocturnal animal behavior.

At 202 x 205 mm, the newly developed CMOS sensor is among the largest chips that can be produced from a 12-inch (300 mm) wafer, and is approximately 40 times the size of Canon’s largest commercial CMOS sensor.

Comunicatul de presa aici.

Carl Zeiss a anuntat Distagon T* 1,4/35, un obiectiv la un pret recomandat de 1390E fara TVA. Va sosi pe piata la inceputul lui 2011.

In comunicatul de presa cu acest obiectiv spun ca Distagon T* 1,4/35 va completa prime-urile de 1.4 – Planar T*1,4/50 si T*1,4/85. Ne promit un obiectiv sharp cu niste calitati optice exceptionale la care subliniaza “special bokeh effects” si “bright light sources without artifacts”.

Pretul la care il vom putea cumpara ar fi de 3 ori mai mare decat cel pentru Sigma EX 30mm/f1.4 (de exemplu), dar nu cred ca performantele obiectivului vor fi de 3 ori mai mari, punand in balanta si lipsa autofocus-ului. Au promis monturi Canon si Nikon pana acum…
