PANASONIC ANNOUNCES THE AVAILABILITY OF THE LUMIX DMC-G7 – ITS HIGHLY ANTICIPATED INTERCHANGEABLE LENS CAMERA

Featuring 4K Photography / Video Recording Capability and New Digital Single Lens Mirrorless Technology

MISSISSAUGA, ON (May 19th, 2015) – Panasonic Canada Inc. is proud to introduce the 7th generation of its world-renowned G series of high-end compact cameras, the DMC-G7.  This new Digital Single Lens Mirrorless (DSLM) camera integrates 4K video recording alongside an impressive variety of 4K photography capabilities.  With a 16.00-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor, this latest addition to the LUMIX family of cameras is designed to nurture the creativity of its users when capturing both still and moving images.

The DMC-G7’s 4K video recording capabilities allow users to capture stunningly-smooth, high-resolution scenes at an unprecedented speed of 30 fps with 8-megapixel equivalent resolution.  Additionally, users can take fleeting photo opportunities within their 4K videos by using three new features – 4K Burst Shooting, 4K Burst S/S (Start/Stop) and 4K Pre-burst.  All of these functions enable the user to simply select photos from the 4K video by cropping the desired frame out of the 4K burst file.

The G7’s 16.00-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor is highly sensitive and fast-responding. Its Venus Engine dramatically boosts the camera’s performance with a quad-core CPU that achieves high speed signal processing resulting in 8 fps(AFS) / 6 fps(AFC).  Additionally, the Venus Engine vividly improves colour reproduction with an accurate evaluation of each colour – in both saturation and luminosity – allowing the camera to capture exceptionally fast-moving subjects in complete focus. This high-powered engine also excels in diffraction compensation to capture images that are crisp and clear, even when using a small aperture. With an integrated superior noise reduction system, the DMC-G7 also enables shooting at maximum ISO25600.  Sensitivity, gradation performance, resolution and colour reproduction have dramatically advanced in this model to achieve a higher picture quality than ever before.

Fujifilm: New Weather-Resistant FUJINON XF90mmF2 R LM WR Telephoto Lens for Portraiture and Sports Photography: Fast-aperture Prime Lens at 0.14 Seconds Autofocus Speed & Nearly Silent Operation

Mon May 18, 2015

FUJIFILM ANNOUNCES NEW FUJINON XF90MM FAST APERTURE LENS THAT DELIVERS ULTRA-SHARP IMAGES

XF90mm telephoto lens features newly-developed Quad Linear Motor and weather-resistant design

Valhalla, N.Y., May 18, 2015FUJIFILM North America Corporation announced the new compact FUJINON XF90mmF2 R LM WR, a weather-resistant, fast-aperture prime lens that delivers ultra-sharp images with rich bokeh, at all aperture settings. The XF90mmF2 R LM WR (137mm in 35mm format equivalent) uses an optical construction of 11 elements in 8 groups (including three ED glass elements) that minimizes vignetting and creates attractive bokeh thanks to the rounded diaphragm, which makes it perfect for portraiture and sports photography.

Despite having a large maximum aperture, the FUJINON XF90mmF2 R LM WR is both compact and, at less than 20 ounces, lightweight. It also gives users a minimum working distance of approximately 24 inches for a wide range of shooting scenarios. The XF90mmF2 R LM WR now uses a newly-developed Quad Linear Motor that delivers fast, accurate autofocus as fast as 0.14 seconds. The new linear motor is fast, quiet and accurate, and uses four magnets for higher torque and a high-speed autofocus that provides a more versatile shooting experience, allowing users to quickly react to subtle changes in a subject’s facial expression. And with its WR-rating, the XF90mmF2 R LM WR is weather and dust-resistant and can work in temperatures down to 14°F.

LOS ANGELES – Animals have never been camera shy – almost since the introduction of the medium in 1839, they have appeared in photographs. While early photographs typically depicted animals that were tame, captive, or dead, modern and contemporary artists have delved into the interdependent relationship between man and beast. Drawn entirely from the J. Paul Getty Museum’s photographs collection, In Focus: Animalia, on view May 26-October 18, 2015 at the Getty Center, illustrates some of the complex relationships between people and animals. From an intimate studio portrait with dog and owner to the calculated cruelty of inbreeding practices, these photographs offer nuanced views of the animal kingdom.

“It is easy to understand why artists choose animals for their subject matter – their lives are profoundly intertwined with our own, often eliciting powerful emotions,” says Timothy Potts, Director of the J. Paul Getty Museum. “Whether seen as beloved pets, kept in zoos, or threatened by human activity, animals continue to fascinate and act as catalysts for artistic creativity. This exhibition highlights the many different ways in which animals as subject matter have served as an endearing theme for photographers throughout history right up to the present day.”
