New Sigma 105mm Macro Lens Adds Image Stabilization

Mon July 25, 2011

Sigma MACRO 105mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM

Sigma MACRO 105mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM

Sigma takes its exceptional 105mm macro lens to the next level with the addition of optical stabilization

TORONTO, ON., July 25, 2011 – Gentec International is pleased to announce the new Sigma MACRO 105mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM lens, a large aperture, medium telephoto lens offering advanced performance and featuring Sigma’s proprietary optical stabilizer (OS) system for handheld close-up photography. The new OS system adds greater versatility to this classic lens, which is ideally suited to portraiture and copy work, as well as extreme close-ups.

Focusing down to 1:1 magnification ratio at its closest working distance of 31.2 centimetres, this compact lens produces sharp, life size images of tiny subjects and details that often go unseen. A Special Low Dispersion (SLD) lens and one high refractive index SLD lens provide excellent correction for all types of aberration and distortion. A floating focusing system moves two different lens groups in the optical path to different positions, which compensates for astigmatic aberration and spherical aberration, and provides extremely high optical performance from infinity to 1:1 macro. The Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting, providing high-contrast images.

Panasonic GF3 Review @ DCRP (dcresource)

Sun July 24, 2011

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3

The [Panasonic] GF3 takes very good quality photos, performs well, and generally has a nice feature set. I’m not very enthusiastic about the GF3 (mainly due to its design), but it’s certainly worth your consideration.

We’ve added another Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3 [QuickPrice Check] review to our Reviews Matrix.

DCRP (dcresource) has published their preview of the Panasonic GF3, a compact mirrorless Micro Four-Thirds Digital Interchangeable Lens camera with 12.1MP resolution (on a 17.3 x 13.0 mm LiveMOS sensor), 3.0-in.

This Week’s (Jul 16-22, 2011) Digital Camera Review Roundup

Sat July 23, 2011

Here is this week’s (Jul 16-22, 2011) digital camera review roundup:

  • CameraLabs finds that the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX78 [QuickPrice Check]produces excellent quality images and gave a good account of itself in our high ISO noise tests.
  • Luminous Landscape really likes the Sigma SD-1 [QuickPrice Check] and conclude by saying that if the SD1 had been priced at about $2,000 I likely would have bought one. I find its image quality appealing, and though the last thing that I need is another camera and set of lenses, I find it capable of producing a look in prints that I really like. But unrealistically priced as it is, no sale.
  • Imaging Resource found the autofocus of the Nikon COOLPIX S9100 [QuickPrice Check] is not always reliable but nevertheless “liked both the color capture and detail rendering of the Coolpix S9100′s images, even at high ISO and was able to make cropped 5x7s without worrying about loss of quality.
  • ePHOTOzine finds that the entry-level ultra slim Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH7 / FS22 “does not disappoint in terms of image quality.
  • DPReview compares six compact Travel Zoom digital cameras: Canon SX230 HS, Nikon S9100, Panasonic ZS10, Pentzx RZ10, Samsung WB210 and Sony HX9V.
  • Trusted Reviews recommends the Canon EOS Rebel T3 / 1100D [QuickPrice Check] as “a competent entry-level DSLR that currently offers the cheapest way into the Canon DSLR system.
  • Steve’s Digicams gives their “thumbs up” to the Canon EOS Rebel T3 / 1100D [QuickPrice Check] Family DSLR for offering “outstanding performance, ergonomics, and image quality for a price that is hard to beat by its competition.
  • ePHOTOzine recommends the Samsung NX11 as “a great camera to use, quick at focusing and produces Digital SLR quality photos with good colour and detail.

Diver Almost Sucked Into Mouth of Massive Whale Shark

Sat July 23, 2011

A diver almost gets sucked into the gaping mouth of a massive whale shark as it feeds on plankton off Isla Mujeres, Mexico.

Here’s the Wikipedia entry on the whale shark:

The whale shark, Rhincodon typus, is a slow-moving filter feeding shark, the largest living fish species. The largest confirmed individual was 12.65 metres (41.50 ft) in length and the heaviest weighed more than 36 tonnes (79,000 lb), but unconfirmed claims report considerably larger whale sharks. [...] The shark is found in tropical and warm oceans, lives in the open sea with a lifespan of about 70 years. [...] Although whale sharks have very large mouths, they feed mainly, though not exclusively, on plankton, microscopic plants and animals, although the BBC program Planet Earth filmed a whale shark feeding on a school of small fish.

Mini Cooper Interactive Photo Booth

Sat July 23, 2011


From kitdashit

Everyone loves a photo of themselves. Especially if it is superimposed on a cool background. In this video, Mini Cooper gets visitors to its booth into (or besides) their cool cars. Too bad they hand out only a print version and pass on a missed marketing opportunity: an electronic version sent to the person’s email will provide a nice monitor background — and collect a potential buyer’s email.

Editor’s note: Weird, but just noticed the Christina Perri post also features a mini cooper — entirely no relation to this post, nor are these sponsored posts (which we clearly label as such).
