FUJIFILM X-T1 and X100T Cameras are Elected as Japanese Historical Cameras by JCII Camera Museum

Sat December 20, 2014

Japan Camera Industry Institute (JCII) inspects all cameras exported from Japan in order to maintain quality standards.

In addition to this inspection function, JCII in 1969 started to designate some cameras as “Japanese Historical Cameras” and began efforts to preserve these important items.

Japanese Historical Cameras” serve as pages in the history of Japanese camera development, making it more accessible to the world.
Cameras which are considered significant in some regard are selected by the Historical Camera Committee, which is composed of unbiased experts and specialists in the field.
All new cameras released within the calendar year are eligible, with evaluation based on factors such as the first use of a new technology and popularity among consumers.

Most “Japanese Historical Cameras” designated in past years are held in the collection of the JCII Camera Museum, which is run by the JCII, and many are on display.

The Historical Camera Committee is a review group established within the Japan Camera Industry Institute.

JCII Camera Museum’s highlights include:

  • a collection of several thousand cameras;
  • displaying various types of cameras from around the world in the Special Exhibition section which includes “classic,” “masterpiece” and “curio” cameras;
  • a permanent display of historical and new cameras of Japan (Nippon)
    (approximately 300 items);
  • preserving important information pertaining to the cameras;
  • exhibiting all phases of the worldwide history of photography; and
  • promoting the understanding of photography and film in the “JCII Photo Salon” and the “JCII Library”.
    • JCII Photo Salon is the exhibition of photographs that create interest in Japanese photographic culture.
    • JCII Library contains books related to photography.

Fujifilm announced that X-T1  and  X100T cameras are elected as Japanese Historical Cameras by JCII Camera Museum.

We are pleased to announce that X-T1 and X100T are elected as Japanese Historical Camera by Japanese JCII Camera Museum.

The first use of a new technology and popularity among consumers are among the key factors to determine the selection, and “Multi Mode Viewfinder” for X-T1 and “Advanced Hybrid Viewfinder” for X100T were regarded as significant technological advancement.

They will be put on permanent display at the Camera Museum.

FUJIFILM: Award-Winning Fujifilm X-series Cameras’ Head of Design Development is Masasumi Imai

Masasumi Imai oversees the design development of all models including the original X100, the X-E2 and, his own personal favourite, the X-T1.

Thanks to Imai-san, Fujifilm has won many prestigious awards for the X-series cameras.

The functional design development process for the award-winning X-series cameras requires three teams – the brand team, the design team and the development team – and “all aspects of the camera are discussed all the way through the process. All aspects of the camera complement each other.

During the photokina 2014 show the Digital Camera team at Fujifilm UK interviewed with Imai-san to ask him about his inspiration, the current range and what we can hope to see in the future.

How will X-series cameras develop in the future?
There are many possibilities. One option would be to modernise the existing camera styles, another would be to go for an even more traditional style. Internally, we are going to concentrate on our APS-C X-Trans sensor and make sure there are many lenses and accessories that complement it. There could be a full-frame model in the future, I don’t know, but we started as a film company and this means we’re used to working with different formats.
Viewfinder resolution will undoubtedly increase going forward, as well as the speed – the current scanning frame rate is 54 frames per scan, but we want it to be over 100. This will help it look even more like an optical viewfinder and, in fact, exceed it.
We do intend to keep producing models at the current rate, so there will be plenty more to come from Fujifilm – our teams are very busy!

NEWARK, NJ (December 17, 2014) – Matthew Abourezk, Owner/Director of Talkingbox Media Group (Easton, CT), was faced with a dilemma in choosing his new video camera.

“At some point, you simply need a dedicated video camera with more depth of field,” Abourezk said. His solution was to invest in Panasonic’s AJ-PX270 P2 HD camcorder. “I did my research, the PX270 has great reviews, and as a longtime AG-HVX200 owner, I was comfortable with Panasonic gear.”

How You May Appear To Facial Recognition Software, With A Little Help From Facebook

Tue December 16, 2014

What happens when you reverse-engineer surveillance face recognition algorithms and then feed the data into Facebook’s face-detection software?

Sterling Crispin does just that to create his “Data Masks” collection — an eerie set of “mutated” faces that seem to exist only in your worst nightmares.

He does not claim that is how facial recognition software actually “sees” us since each of his data mask merges data sets from different actual faces.

I guess the data masks might be recognized as valid human faces by Facebook’s face-detection software? Creepy.

[M]y goal is to show the machine what it’s looking for, to hold a mirror up to the all-seeing eye of the digital-panopticon we live in and let it stare back into its own mind.

You’re Invited: CONTACT Gallery Launch Party / Closing Reception of Nzirambi, Photographer Johan Hallberg-Campbell Dec.18, 2014

Mon December 15, 2014

The following video presents Nzirambi from Johan Hallberg-Campbell on Vimeo:

The Nzirambi Education Fund

Five years ago the Nzirambi Education Fund was established, inspired by a young girl at the orphanage named Veronica. At the time, she was 16-years old-and the third highest scoring student in her entire district with very big dreams to go to law school in university. These were especially big dreams considering her unfortunate start in life — she had been left at the orphanage when she was just a baby after her mother died of AIDS. When she first came to the orphanage there were only a handful of other children there – but the number continued to grow, and today, Veronica has more than 100 brothers and sisters at the orphanage. They are all children whose families could not – or would not — take care of them: most of them are there because their mothers died in childbirth, some lost their parents to AIDS and sadly, some are there because they were abandoned – sometimes in bushes, once in a garbage dump on Christmas Day, and others were tossed into latrines. These newborns are the most vulnerable of all — brought to the orphanage, cared by House Mothers who love them back to life.

Photographer William Daniels is The Winner of The Fourth Annual Tim Hetherington Grant

Sun December 14, 2014

French photographer William Daniels (Panos Pictures) has been awarded the fourth annual Tim Hetherington Grant.

The grant is an annual 20,000 euro (24927.00 US Dollar at the current exchange rate) grant awarded to a visual journalist to finalize an ongoing project on a human rights theme.

Daniels has been photographing with a Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR.

The ‘Roots of Africa’s Unholy War: Central African Republic’ project, which Daniels has been photographing with a Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR, has been documenting the bloody conflict in the country which, during 2013, was sparked when rebels from the Séléka seized power, unleashing nine months of anarchy. Daniels undertook five trips to the country during this period to understand and cover the unfolding drama and the roots of the conflict, which have been under-reported by the media. He now wishes to be able to switch perspectives to document the unseen side of the conflict and to provide an understanding of the country through compassionate imagery.
