FUJIFILM will be hosting a special launch event in Toronto on February 27th to celebrate the launch of these new products:

The X-H1 is the first of the X Series cameras to have in-body stabilization, harnessing three axial accelerometers, three axial Gyro sensors, and a specially-developed dual-processor. When combined with compensating mechanisms, the X-H1 produces uncompromised image quality and precision.

The MKX18-55mm and MKX50-135mm lenses are lightweight and compact; achieving advanced optical performance utilizing the short flange focal distance of X Mount. Adding to their high quality video production, these MKX lenses are designed for ease-of-use. The gears for all three rings are positioned in the same place eliminating the need to re-position accessories when switching lenses.

WEST CALDWELL, NJ, February 21, 2018 - Ricoh Imaging Americas Corporation today announced the PENTAX K-1 Mark II 35mm full-frame digital SLR (DSLR) camera. Developed as the successor to the PENTAX K-1 full-frame DSLR camera launched in April 2016, the compact, rugged and weather-resistant PENTAX K-1 Mark II now becomes the flagship camera in the acclaimed PENTAX K-series lineup. The camera incorporates new technologies that allow it to deliver outstanding image quality and improved operability in a broader range of shooting conditions.

The PENTAX K-1 Mark II uses the same full-frame Anti-aliasing (AA)-filterless CMOS sensor with 36.4 effective megapixels as its predecessor model. However, Ricoh has added a new accelerator unit to the PENTAX K-1 Mark II that—along with the camera’s PRIME IV image processor—enables it to produce high-resolution images with minimal noise in even in the most challenging low-light conditions, up to ISO 819200. This makes the new camera ideal for low-light photography where higher shutter speeds are required.

What does it take to build a camera for “professional use,” and all that phrase entails? Fujifilm is positioning the new X-H1 mirrorless as such and, in a series of articles on the development of the X-H1, takes us behind the scenes to share the challenges that its product planners, designers and engineers faced — and solved — in the development of the X-H1.

The mount of the X-H1 is thickened and reinforced with ribs to provide additional support for heavier lenses. Image courtesy of Fujifilm.

In Part 1, they explore how they made the X-H1 more robust while still keeping it portable, lightweight and ergonomic and how they strengthened the mount so it can handle heavier telephoto lenses, such as the forthcoming XF200MMF2 R LM OIS WR (300mm equivalent).

The reinforced mount allows lenses heavier than 2 kg to be attached to the X-H1. Image courtesy of Fujifilm.
