Zoom Into Your Digital Camera’s Microchip

Sat November 22, 2014

A digital camera has many fewer moving parts than a film camera. There’s no need to wind up the film, advance it or rewind it back into the cartridge. So, there’s no film advance lever or rewind knob. What about the dedicated Shutter Speed Dial and Aperture Ring we see on some of the more popular digital cameras? It’s all electronics, controlled by the microchip at the heart of all of our modern electronics. That microchip also converts and processes all the analog data captured onto the image sensor into digital form, performs noise reduction, etc. So, here’s a look at a microchip (although it’s an “old” one), real close.

Sony α7 II, the World’s First Full-Frame Camera with Optical 5-Axis Image Stabilization: Available in Europe from Jan.2015

Thu November 20, 2014

Sony has released the α7 II (ILCE-7M2), the next in the α7 series of interchangeable-lens models and the world’s first[i] camera with optical 5-axis image stabilization designed for a full-frame image sensor.

The α7 II will be generally available in Europe from January 2015.

Please click here for the α7 II (ILCE-7M2)- technical specifications.

The following video presents α7 Ⅱ 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE from Sony: Official Video Release:

5-axis image stabilization (5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE)
The remarkable new 5-axis image stabilization system dramatically expands your range of expression by compensating for five types of camera shake during handheld shooting of still images and movies. So you can confidently zoom in faraway subjects, snap detailed close-ups and capture night scenes with minimal camera shake blur. Since camera shake compensation is equivalent to using a 4.5-step* faster shutter speed, you can also take advantage of a wider range of shutter speeds. All this, within super compact dimensions!

* Based on CIPA standard. Pitch/yaw shake only. With Sonnar T* FE 55mm F1.8 ZA lens mounted. Long exposure NR off.

Sony Introduces the α7 II, the World’s First Full-Frame Camera with Optical 5-Axis Image Stabilization

Nov 20, 2014 11:05 GMT

Sony has released the α7 II (ILCE-7M2), the next in the α7 series of interchangeable-lens models and the world’s first[i] camera with optical 5-axis image stabilization designed for a full-frame image sensor.

The camera offers outstanding image quality in a compact size and light build, and it carries on the traditions of the α7 series, which includes the world’s smallest and lightest interchangeable-lens full-frame camera (α7R). A 24.3 effective megapixel 35 mm full-frame Exmor® CMOS sensor moves along five axes to compensate for camera shake, providing optical image stabilization equivalent to up to 4.5 steps faster shutter speed of correction[ii] for still images. Shooting sharp handheld stills and video is now possible under conditions that may have required a tripod in the past. In this and other scenarios, users can enjoy beautifully rendered images from the full-frame sensor with the convenience of image stabilization. In-camera image stabilization also offers sharper images for those using A-mount lenses on an optional lens adapter.

World’s first full-frame camera with optical 5-axis image stabilization

Detects and corrects various camera shake along five axes for still images and video, including angular shake (pitch and yaw) that tends to occur when shooting with a telephoto lens, shift shake (along the X and Y axes) that becomes noticeable as photographing magnification increases, and rotational shake (roll) that often affects shots at night or when recording video.

The full-frame image sensor moves to compensate for these kinds of camera shake. For still images, stabilization is equivalent to up to 4.5 steps faster shutter speed of correction.

 FUJIFILM ANNOUNCES MACRO TUBES AND LAUNCH TIMING FOR NEW FIRMWARE UPDATES

Major firmware update and PC Tethered Shooting Software planned for FUJIFILM X-T1; updates coming for FUJIFILM X-E2, X-E1, X-Pro1 and X30

Valhalla, N.Y., November 20, 2014 FUJIFILM North America Corporation today announced two new Macro Extension Tubes for the award-winning line of X-Series interchangeable lens cameras; plus a launch date for a major firmware update and PC Tethered Shooting Software HS-V5 for the FUJIFILM X-T1 Graphite Silver and X-T1 Black cameras.

By attaching the ring between a FUJINON XF or XC lens and a camera body, users can enjoy high-magnification photography. When the Macro Extension Tube is attached, the focus range is limited so users can find a focus point by moving the camera forward and backward.

The Macro Extension Tubes are equipped with electronic contacts, retaining normal AE (Auto Exposure) functions and are designed to seamlessly blend into the original look and feel of the X-Series line of compact system cameras.

FUJIFILM Macro Extension Tubes will be available in mid-December 2014 for USD $99.95 \ CAD $109.99 each.

PC Tethered Shooting Software HS-V5

A new PC Tethered Shooting Software HS-V5 for Windows® Ver. 1.0 will feature two modes, Camera Mode and PC Mode, giving photographers enhanced shooting controls.

Within the PC Tethered Shooting Software, Camera Mode allows users to operate the camera and adjust its settings on the camera itself, with images taken simultaneously transferred to computer for display on the screen or saving on a PC. Adjusting exposure and other shooting settings, along with activating the shutter release, are carried out on camera. Alternatively, users can switch to PC Mode where they can check the viewfinder image of a remotely-setup camera, operate the camera and adjust its settings on a PC screen, with images taken simultaneously transferred to a PC for display on the screen or saving onto a PC. Adjusting exposure and other shooting settings, or activating the shutter release, are carried out remotely on the computer.

PC Tethered Shooting Software HS-V5 also includes the Hyper-Utlity3 image browser for easy image viewing, analysis, assessment, categorization and organization. It features an image analysis function using the histogram, highlight clipping warning and EXIF data (including Film Simulations, exchangeable LENS name, and more) and displays an “image assessment” function that shows two images side-by-side for comparison.

PC Tethered Shooting Software HS-V5 will be available in January 2015.

Firmware v3.0 (X-T1 Graphite Silver, X-T1 Black) available for download on December 18

Fujifilm will release a free, comprehensive firmware update on December 18 specifically for the new FUJIFILM X-T1 Graphite Silver and the original X-T1 Black that will give users exciting new features and controls to dramatically enhance their X-T1 shooting experience, including:

Leica Camera AG Licenses a Patent Portfolio of Intellectual Ventures to Strengthen Its Intellectual Property Strategy and Business Position

Wed November 19, 2014

Leica Camera AG has licensed a patent portfolio of Intellectual Ventures™ (IV) to strengthen the existing intellectual property (IP) strategy and position of Leica Camera.

  • Intellectual Ventures is a privately-held invention capital company. IV builds a market for invention by making invention a profitable activity.
  • It has more than $6 billion committed capital and more than 40,000 intellectual property  (IP) assets in active monetization programs.
  • IV licenses intellectual property portfolios to companies, individuals, and institutions.

C-suite (a.k.a. chief executive officers, chief operating officers and chief information officers) at successful, growing companies faces multiple challenges such as technological convergence, limited R&D (Research & Development) capacities, and fierce global competition.

The agreement provides Leica, the Wetzlar based manufacturer of cameras and sport optics products, with a license to IV’s patent portfolio of nearly 40,000 IP assets in more than 50 technology areas, including digital imaging.

IV’s patent expertise, IP assets, and invention capabilities span the IT industry and every discipline of science and technology, helping companies gain efficient access to a global source of invention rights.,

Together with our customers, Intellectual Ventures is Bridging the Invention Gap™ by significantly reducing liabilities and providing access to valuable invention rights.

The Invention Gap—the difference between the invention rights companies own and the intellectual property (IP) assets they use—represents a strategic risk and potentially substantial financial liability. According to PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, over the past 15 years, the annual median damages award for patent litigation in the U.S. has ranged from $2.4M to $10.5M—with single initial judgments as high as $1.8B.

Intellectual Ventures (IV®)

This video presents Patents Matter.

  • “Intellectual Ventures (IV) has always believed that patents are valuable, and the Market Research on Patent Attitudes study confirms that the C-suite shares this belief.
  • To read more study insights, visit http://www.intven.com/patentsmatter.”

Here are the key benefits of licensing IV’s Patent Portfolio.

  • IV is an efficient source of IP and is uniquely positioned to help customers mitigate risk and increase their IP potential through licensing IV’s assembled portfolio containing nearly 40,000 IP assets in active monetization programs.
  • No longer deal with multiple patent owners; IV assembles the best available assets in the industry.
  • Avoid multiple business and legal costs, such as royalty stacking, through one licensing transaction.
  • Reduce exposure to litigation and the toll it will take on a business through fees and business disruption.
  • IV customers have access to value-added solutions designed to address short-term IP-related concerns while providing long-term leverage for their business success.
  • Access to IV’s acquisitions channels to source and buy relevant IP.
  • Leverage IV’s network of inventors to create new inventions.
  • Extend R&D efforts through acquiring and outsourcing targeted invention.
  • Monetize underutilized IP portfolio assets.
  • Mitigate potential threats by collaborating on defensive strategies: Intellectual Ventures’ IP-for-Defense™ program.
    • Intellectual Ventures’ patent experts identify patents in the Intellectual Ventures’ portfolio that could mitigate strategic risk for their customers.

Leica is also now a subscriber to IV’s IP-for-Defense™ program.

Sony Announces the Exmor RS™, the Industry’s First*1 Stacked CMOS Image Sensor with an Image Plane Phase Detection Signal Processing Function for High-Speed AF

*1: As of November 17, 2014

Tokyo, Japan – November 17, 2014 – Sony Corporation (hereafter “Sony”) today announces the commercialization of the Exmor RS™ IMX230 for smartphone cameras and other devices requiring increasingly sophisticated image-capture functionality. With 21 effective megapixels, this stacked CMOS imaging sensor features compact size, higher image quality, and improved functionality. This is the industry’s first CMOS image sensor for smartphones to be equipped with an onboard image plane phase detection AF signal processing function to achieve excellent focus tracking of fast-moving subjects. The High Dynamic Range (HDR) function, which captures both backgrounds and subjects clearly and vividly even in high-contrast scenes such as backlit locations, now supports high-resolution still images and 4K video recording. This new CMOS image sensor will ship in April 2015.

Exmor RS IMX230 stacked CMOS image sensor

Exmor RS IMX230 stacked CMOS image sensor

model-shipment-priceRather than the traditional back-illuminated CMOS image sensor’s support substrate, the Exmor RS™ uses a chip consisting of signal processing circuits, on top of which is stacked a pixel section consisting of back-illuminated pixels for an original stacked construction. This kind of stacked CMOS imaging sensor, which delivers superior image quality and high functionality in a compact size, was first commercialized by Sony in 2012.

The new IMX230 is a type 1/2.4 stacked CMOS image sensor with a significantly improved 21 effective megapixels, and it is also equipped with a newly developed signal processing function. These features fulfill the growing needs in smartphone photography for high-speed autofocus (image plane phase detection AF) and clear, high-quality capture of bright and dark areas even in backlit scenes (HDR imaging). Image plane phase detection AF is a technology used in mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras, and HDR imaging now supports not only 4K (4096 x 2160) high-resolution videos but also still images. Sony also plans to extend the lineup by adding a 16 effective megapixels stacked CMOS image sensor equipped with image plane phase detection AF and HDR imaging functions by the end of the next fiscal year.
