CANON REVEALS EXCITING PLANS FOR VISA POUR L'IMAGE FESTIVAL

Latest pro products on show and special presentations planned

Canon has announced plans for an expanded CPS area and a new programme of presentations for the professional week of the Visa pour l'Image 2010 international festival of photojournalism in Perpignan, France, from 30 August until 5 September 2010.

The 'Canon Space' will showcase the latest range of Canon professional photographic products - EOS DSLRs, EF lenses, accessories, and G-series compacts - plus the XF305 and XF300 pro HD camcorders. At the expanded Canon Professional Services (CPS) area EOS DSLR bodies, lenses and accessories can be borrowed, and accredited Canon photographers can have equipment checked and cleaned.

From 1-3 September at Visa pour l'Image 2010 Canon will hold a special 'presentation programme' which will include Canon Ambassadors Michael Nichols, Paolo Pellegrin, Brent Stirton and Ziv Koren talking about their work, plus presentations on Canon PIXMA printers, Apple and Adobe editing packages, and shooting and editing EOS Movies.

The 'Canon Space' will also feature a superb exhibition of large prints of photographs shot by the Canon Ambassadors.

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of decades have been turbulent for medium format camera manufacturers, but now after several well-known names have withdrawn, the market looks healthy.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…
