Tamron has announced the launch of a console, named TAP-01, to update and configure the firmware of lenses without going to a Customer Service Center. Very cool.
The new console requires just an internet access to download the firmware or the settings that user can customize. Price is unknown so far.
The complete press release is available at the following link.
As leaked in Internet (see our "gossip" news on Tuesday), the successor of Canon DSLR 70D (the first with Dual Pixel AutoFocus sensor) has been announced yesterday: the EOS 80D.
It is not a revolution from 70D but it brings many interesting update and additions. Let's see them all.
Today Sony has introduced a new mirrorless camera as an evolution of the famous A6000: the A6300, with a new 24 megapixel APS-C sensor e new autofocus system (based on the one of A6000 and called "4D"....) with... 425 AF point covering all the frame and compatible with A-mount lenses via an adapter! Sony claims just 5 hundredth of second for focusing in normal conditions!
Here are the other main features:
Adobe has released Lightroom 6.4. Many of the interesting changes are the same that we covered with the detail article on Adobe Camera Raw 9.4 - see here.
Now let's see the changes for Lightroom in details, as new features/improvements and bug fixes.
- Faster update of thumbnails when editing multiple images using sync or copy&paste, also Lightroom now builds 1:1 previews in advance to be ready for fast zooming in.
- The panorama merging process is about twice faster than version 6.3.
Yesterday, January 5th 2016, Nikon has announced two new and amazing DLSR: the middle/high segment D500 and the professional D5.
They are packed with a lot of new technology, really interesting and significantly upgrade previous models, respectively D300s (after six years, I am happy that industry takes time to innovate and not just throw out new models every 6 months just to make your camera seem obsolete) and D4x.
Let's see most interesting points.
