Leica S3 Camera http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/20523/leica-s3-camera Wed, 26 Sep 2018 09:07:42 -0600 Vitaliy_Kiselev 20523@/talks/discussions image

September 25, 2018- Leica Camera today unveils five major announcements at photokina including a groundbreaking L-mount, a new mobile application - Leica FOTOS, the Leica S3, a new color option for the Leica CL, and firmware updates. Each announcement, on their own and collectively, both raise and challenge the bar for what innovation, craftsmanship and ingenuity mean in the photography industry.

The Next Evolution of the Leica S-System

The launch of the Leica S3 marks the tenth anniversary of the launch of the Leica S2 at photokina 2008. Among an array of cutting-edge technical advancements, the new medium format camera, which utilizes the Leica ProFormat developed especially for the Leica S-System, features a striking increase in resolution, from 37.5 to 64 megapixels, and impeccable performance in any lighting situation. Subjects can be composed in the large and bright SLR viewfinder, focused sharply with the fast and reliable autofocus and captured at a continuous shooting rate of three frames per second. The entire sensor area enables not only full-HD videos, but, for the first time, also 4K cinema resolution, including the characteristic medium format look.

The S3 will be available beginning in Spring 2019 at Leica Stores, Boutiques and Dealers, for more information, please visit www.leicaca

Zeiss ZX1 - Another FF camera, this time with Android inside http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/20542/zeiss-zx1-another-ff-camera-this-time-with-android-inside Thu, 27 Sep 2018 12:48:00 -0600 Vitaliy_Kiselev 20542@/talks/discussions

First full-frame camera from ZEISS with first-class image quality and the familiar, intuitive image editing and connectivity of a smartphone.

image

OBERKOCHEN/Germany, 2018-09-27.

ZEISS ZX1 -- That is the name of the newly developed mirrorless full-frame camera from ZEISS that was presented today in Cologne, Germany. Thanks to the ZEISS lens and a sensor developed in-house at ZEISS, the camera delivers first-class image quality combined with an operational concept and user experience that make the photographer's jobs-to-be-done as intuitive as on a smartphone.

The ZEISS camera concept is just the first step to opening up a new world of possibilities for ambitious photographers -- from taking the shot to editing the image and sharing it on the web.

SHOOT. EDIT. SHARE. -- Harmonized hardware, software and optics for a seamless creative process

SHOOT: the ZEISS ZX1 features a newly designed, integrated ZEISS Distagon 35 mm f/2 T* lens with autofocus that has been perfectly matched to the 37.4 megapixel full-frame sensor developed in-house at ZEISS. The interplay between the lens and sensor ensures first-class picture quality with that typical ZEISS look.

EDIT: The ZEISS ZX1 enables photographers to professionally process RAW images directly on the camera thanks to fully integrated Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC. Moreover, the ZEISS ZX1's unique user interface supports the user's particular workflow without any interruption -- providing direct access to the most frequently used functions via a 4.3" multi-touch display.

SHARE: when the networked full-frame camera is connected, the user can upload selected images directly to the internet -- without the intermediate transfer to memory cards or other external devices.

512 GB of internal memory provide sufficient space for approximately 6,800 RAW files (DNG) or over 50,000 JPGs -- more than enough to handle photos, even during a longer trip, and giving the photographer the chance to let their creativity flow. Versatile connectivity options such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and USB-C ensure that various peripherals can be connected. Over-the-air software updates keep the camera up to date without requiring a computer connection.

Designed with a passion for detail and a focus on the essentials

The design of the ZEISS ZX1 is characterized by its iconic shape with carefully crafted details. The overall form and reduction to just those elements that are absolutely necessary lay the foundation for an ergonomic camera and ensure easy handling. The symbiosis of hardware and software is exemplified by the newly defined user interface that utilizes the 4.3" multi-touch display. The slightly bent screen separates the live view from the control elements, making camera operation comfortable and straightforward.

"We know that we exploring new ways and initially addressing a special target group with the ZEISS ZX1. With our concept we are focusing on ambitious, professional creatives who want to produce their photographic experiences quickly and efficiently, and inspire as many people on the Internet as possible. This requires a streamlined workflow in addition to high-end features. This is exactly what the concept of the ZEISS ZX1 offers," explains Jörg Schmitz, Head of the Consumer Products business group at ZEISS.

ZEISS ZX1 available from early 2019

The ZEISS ZX1 will be available at selected dealers in early 2019. ZEISS will announce the recommended retail price at the start of the official market launch. Starting now, anyone interested in receiving information on exact availability can register at www.zeiss.com/zx1.

Back on L mount thing - it was planned to be only Panasonic-Leica alliance http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/20576/back-on-l-mount-thing-it-was-planned-to-be-only-panasonic-leica-alliance Sun, 30 Sep 2018 14:53:03 -0600 Vitaliy_Kiselev 20576@/talks/discussions Note the alliance logo

and now look at the L mount logo present in all videos

image

It is some small talks that no alliance existed at all very short prior Photokina.

Panasonic had been rushing to make mockups since around April-May as they got proper intel where things are going.

They used Leica mount only to save time to make mockups and test some things, actually. No any deep decisions behind it.

Original plan had been to announce P-L alliance. Marketing ploy, as it was not an alliance at all actually.
Besides mount (made by Panasonic engineers before) Leica won't contribute anything to the real mass market system products at all.

Sigma joined in very last moments as their management saw great opportunity to sell same Art lenses with around 30-40% higher prices compared to E mount.

My gh2 with the 14/140 I bought it in 2012 and since then I have never done an update neither for the gh2 nor for my goal, so I think now I should make the updates, even if late seen the exit now of the GH5. but I'm still fond of my old gh2 for now. I would like to know how it is done and above all I can do the updates in the normal way as described on the web or being my gh2 with hack I have to use another method? thank you

10 years later Panasonic will announce a new Full Frame system camera on September 25!

Word on the street is that Panasonic will show a prototype and the final product will be on market during the first half of 2019.

One of the sources testing the camera said this is “as exciting as the Nikon Z7 announcement“. One went even further and said it’s “more exciting“. But of course, they might got carried away with their emotions so let’s keep our feet on ground. A third source said “video performance is superb“.

... I MIGHT buy a hacked GH2 but it's not turning on, and I'm considering the worst case scenario (other than "unrepairable"). It's a camera that was hacked and worked fine, but one day didn't wake up after sitting unused for a while.

GH5 wake up from sleep via battery grip http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/20359/gh5-wake-up-from-sleep-via-battery-grip Sat, 01 Sep 2018 11:22:04 -0600 hammyuk 20359@/talks/discussions was wondering how easy it is to modify an aftermarket gh5 battery grip so i can be used to remotely wake up a gh5 i intend to leave in a video camera trap that needs 24h power and be ready after a wake up signal to start recording video.

the camera needs to stay on ready , as typically the gh5 can only wake up via a physical 1/2 press of the shutter butter.

someone in the uk does it but they charge £300 which to be fair might be worth it depending on work involved but i cannot afford it and wondered if its simple or hard todo ?

thanks

Zeiss fixed lens Full Frame camera will be announced on September 27 http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/20371/zeiss-fixed-lens-full-frame-camera-will-be-announced-on-september-27 Sun, 02 Sep 2018 11:08:04 -0600 zsound 20371@/talks/discussions

One of our trusted sources confirmed the Zeiss camera teaser is a real deal. The camera will be announced in the midst of the ongoing Photokina show on September 27. Smart move to avoid all the press buzz that will go one before the Photokina show.

The source told me Zeiss intention with this camera is to show the full potential of their lens design. They couldn’t achieve the same goal by making a “normal” E-mount camera. The new lens is 100% optimized for this fixed lens camera.

Help! My GH3 won't turn on anymore... http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/12353/help-my-gh3-wont-turn-on-anymore... Tue, 10 Feb 2015 05:10:50 -0700 Stab 12353@/talks/discussions Hi guys,

My GH3 won't turn on anymore. I have 3 batteries and I've used all of them. When I press the on/off switch nothing happens. No light comes on, just 'dead'. I've also tried removing the lens and SD card but makes no difference.

I bought i a little over 2 years ago so I guess waranty is out of the question.

Any thoughts, solutions that I could try myself? And an important bonus question: Could this have been caused by inserting a cheaper off-brand (OTB) battery? This never happened before and it seems to have happened after I first inserted a replacement battery. It has the same 'name' (DMW-BLF19E) as the original batteries but uses 7.4v instead of 7.2v and 11.84Wh instead of 14Wh...

Could that have fried the insides of the camera? Otherwise it would have just happened out of nowhere...

Thanks!
