Fujifilm’s Silver Halide Color Prints: “Fit for the Future” for Commercial & Professional Photographers

Wed December 3, 2014

Fujifilm’s photographic papers include the following types of silver halide color paper:
fujicolor-crystal-archive-paper-cropped

  • Fujicolor Crystal Archive Paper is a silver halide color paper, designed exclusively to produce high-image-quality color prints on both analogue and digital printers.

fujicolor-crystal-archive-paper-digital-type-dp-ii-cropped

  • Fujicolor Crystal Archive Paper Digital Type DP II
    • Type DP II is a silver halide color paper for professional use.
    • It has a thicker paper base, a wide color gamut and a very high maximum density. It is designed exclusively for digital printing. When used on medium-or large-scale digital printer systems or the Fujifilm Frontier minilabs, this paper yields high-image-quality digital prints that make it suitable for such professional uses as portrait or commercial photography. It has the highest level of image stability, so it is ideal for display purposes.

One Vision Imaging Ltd. is one of the largest professional photographic laboratories in the UK.

  • One Vision Imaging has been voted by fellow professionals as the ‘Best Professional Photographic Laboratory’ in the UK at the SWPP (Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers) awards.

One Vision Imaging have been servicing professional photographers with the very highest standards of processing and finishing. As imaging specialists we also cater for many other sectors such as design and advertising agencies, graphic designers, Government funded bodies as well as keen enthusiasts.

The expectation of high quality printing is a given, and it’s Fujifilm’s silver halide media that are still the premium products on which the reputation of the lab is carried.

“Inkjet processes can deliver fantastic results,” acknowledges Derek, “but silver halide still has the edge in terms of quality – offering better colour saturation and sharpness, and price points that are compelling too.  It’s basically a superior product. It’s still cheaper to work with at the moment –  and long may that continue to be the case. We rely on silver halide papers and it’s very much in everyone’s interests that we continue to work with this technology: the quality hasn’t been surpassed yet, and it’s still the media that professionals want us to output their prints on.”

NEWS RELEASE

03.12.2014

‘In my opinion, silver halide is still by far the best print technology around.” – Leading social photographer John Baikie.

 Fit for the Future

One Vision has a reputation for being one of the most forward- thinking professional labs in the country and there are plenty of reasons why silver halide prints are still vital to its agenda.

You don’t get to be voted ‘Best Professional Photographic Laboratory’ by members of the SWPP unless you’re going the extra mile to provide great quality products backed up by excellent service.

And that’s exactly what One Vision has been doing for the past 35 years. (In its own right since 2007 and prior to that under the Colab umbrella.)

Based in Coventry, One Vision services a diverse range of clients and prides itself on the fact that all of them receive the kind of tailored personal attention that only a professional lab is capable of providing.

The expectation of high quality printing is a given, and it’s Fujifilm’s silver halide media that are still the premium products on which the reputation of the lab is carried.

Nikon D750 Review @ Neocamera

Tue December 2, 2014 | by Itai Danan

Nikon D750 Review

The D750 is the latest full-frame DSLR from Nikon. It is uniquely optimized to deliver a high-end video performance, capturing full 1080p HD video at 60 FPS and offering a 3.2″ LCD which tilts to frame video from above or below. It is based on a 24 MP full-frame CMOS sensor with wide sensitivity range, from ISO 50 all the way to 51200, when expanded.

Nikon D750 Review

This professional camera shares DNA with the top-of-the-line D810, including its EXPEED 4 processor which delivers unmatched image-parameters to control rendition of colors and details without processing from RAW. This lets it take advantage of the 87-deep JPEG buffer for 6.5 FPS continuous shooting.

Neocamera just published an express review of the Nikon D750. Read it to find out how this camera performs and how well Nikon managed to balance its  performance of still and video.

You’re Invited: Miami Street Photography Festival in USA + Leica’s Instagram Contest Dec.4-7, 2014

Tue December 2, 2014

This video presents Leica Camera at Art Basel Miami 2013 from Leica Camera on Vimeo.

  • Leica Camera teamed up with the Miami Street Photography Festival to help bring back photography into Art Basel Miami.
  • Art Basel Miami was held in December 2013.

Miami Street Photography Festival (MSPF)

in Partnership With Leica

December 4-7, 2014

Most Events FREE and Open to the Public

MSPF Main Exhibit
Kike San Martin Studios
Wynwood Arts District
2045 NW 1st Ave
Miami, FL 33127

Dec. 4, 5, and 6, from 10:00am- to 11:00pm
Dec. 7, from 12:00pm to 5:00pm

Miami Street Photography Festival (MSPF©) celebrates street culture throughout the world via “images portraying everything from the ugly, gritty side of life to more humorous situations, they are moments that unless captured, might otherwise go unnoticed.”

  • Any location within the public realm worldwide is acceptable: indoors and outdoors (i.e. streets, beach, train, park, restaurants, dirt road, etc.)

The MSPF© is an international photography festival showcasing the best of contemporary Street Photography viewed through the eyes of emerging photographers in this genre. The goal of the Festival is to establish a global platform for learning through exhibitions, workshops, lectures and other events.

​This Festival is a collaborative effort to advance the work of photographers who pay attention to everyday life in order to capture the world around us.​

Street photographers use their keen sense of observation to capture compelling candid moments in the everyday life of strangers, whether it be a gesture, facial expression, action or scene. Their method is often likened to a mirror held up to society….it reflects reality. There is no set-up involved, no manipulation of the scene and very little or no post-processing of the image. This realism has provided an accurate and insightful record of street culture throughout the world….

At the heart of street photography is the ‘decisive moment’. This is the split second when an image becomes complete in its composition – when each element of the image is in balance, in context and essential to the scene. This is when the shutter is released and the moment is captured forever.
