The Sigma Corporation is pleased to announce the APS-C Hood Adapter HA1030-01 for the Sigma APO 50-500mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM.

This hood adapter extends the length of the lens hood and provides more effective shading when used with digital cameras with an APS-C size image sensor.

At PMA 2010 in Las Vegas, Sigma announced and exhibited dedicated APS-C Hood Adapters for the APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM and 85mm F1.4 EX DG HSM. After this announcement, many demands have been received for development of a similar APS-C Hood Adapter for the APO 50-500mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM.

As of July 2010, this APS-C Hood Adapter HA1030-01 will be supplied with all APO 50-500mm DG OS HSM lenses.

For UK customers who have already purchased the APO 50-500mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM, the hood adapter will be available free of charge through Sigma Imaging (UK) Ltd. For further details, contact Sigma on 01707 329 999 or sales (at) sigma-imaging-uk.com.

 

 

*When using the APS-C Hood Adapter HA1030-01 with digital cameras with a full frame image sensor, vignetting will occur. Please remove the hood adapter if you are using full frame cameras.

Hasselblad H4D-60 review

UPDATE 18 May, 2012: Hasseblad is set to reduce the price on the H4D cameras by as much as $11,000 / 6,200 Euros on the H4D-60, bringing the price to 23,900 euros ($30,995 / £21,995). Please see here for more details.

The last couple of decades have been turbulent for medium format camera manufacturers, but now after several well-known names have withdrawn, the market looks healthy. Two new unexpected entrants, Leica and Pentax have added to the dynamic at opposing ends of the pricing scale, forcing the two established system players to compete fiercely in their traditional rarefied role as well as the entry-level.

Partnering with both Leaf and Mamiya, Phase One has developed a trio of entry-level Mamiya DM models starting at under $14k/ £9k while continuing to offer a wide range of Phase One and Leaf backs, up to 80-megapixels. Through various offers and incentives these backs, are most likely to be partnered with the 645DF body but they are in fact compatible with a wide range of …

Fujifilm IS Pro UV-IR DSLR review

Fuji’s IS Pro is the up-date to maker’s earlier S3 UV-IR camera, and like that particular camera, the IS Pro adopts a modified image sensor that’s not shielded from UV or IR light. Consequently, with various filtration methods, the IS Pro is designed for Ultraviolet (UVA), visible and near Infrared photography.

Although there is a healthy demand for DSLRs with IR capability especially, and there are number of independent vendors (mainly in the US, but the UK also) that offer IR dedicated and full-spectrum conversion of current Nikon and Canon bodies, it’s anticipated the IS Pro will appeal largely to the scientific and forensic communities. With the departure of the S3 UV-IR, Fuji’s IS Pro continues to be the only dedicated full-spectrum interchangeable lens based DSLR that has professional-level support from a camera maker. As well as official product support and 12-month warranty, for government agencies and the like, the OEM status of the IS Pro will be particularly reassuring an…

Introduction


Unlike the process of dithering liquid ink in an inkjet, dye-sublimation printers produce authentic continuous tone images with an analogous look like that of a conventional lab-produced print. They achieve this using thin c…
