CamFi 3.0 Adds Wireless Tether Support for Sony Cameras

CamFi announced full Wireless Tether Support for Sony Cameras. Their products are available at Amazon US, Amazon DE, Amazon UK.

CamFi 3.0 Adds Wireless Tether Support for Sony Cameras

GUANGDONG, CHINA. – February 23, 2017 – CamFi Limited, maker of wireless controllers for
digital cameras, announced today that the new version of its app, CamFi 3.0, adds wireless tether support
for Sony cameras. This feature allows the photographer to transmit photos from a Sony camera to a laptop
or tablet via Wi-Fi automatically during a photo shoot.

“CamFi is the only wireless camera controller which can support Canon, Nikon and Sony currently. The
support for other camera brands will be added in the future,” Said Mark Ma, CEO of CamFi, “We hope
we can bring something new for the photography industry.”

CamFi 3.0 supports both raw and jpeg image file formats. It also supports live view for Sony cameras.
That way, a photographer can see the live view of the camera, change the ISO, shutter speed and aperture
and shoot remotely. Furthermore, the new version added support for the newest DNP wireless printer
server. This allows the user to print the photo via Wi-Fi immediately after shooting. SAR CamFi supports
multiple camera control, which can be used to create a bullet time effect.

There are many advantages to using wireless remote capture. For one thing, the technology enables the
photographer to see the preview image on a large screen, such as that of a tablet, versus the small
viewfinder of the camera. The tether also makes it possible for the camera to be in a position that gets the
right shot, but which is not necessary comfortable or safe for the photographer. For instance, the camera
can be mounted on a high railing while the photographer can see the preview while standing on the floor
below. Wireless tethers are helpful for time-lapse photography and self-portraits as well.

English specs of the three new Voigtlander Full Frame E-mount lenses!

This is the english presentation text of the three new Voigtlander E-mount Full Frame lenses. There is still no info about the price and the shipment date:

The Voigtländer MACRO APO-LANTHAR 65mm F2 Aspherical was announced at Photokina 2016 in Cologne, Germany, as a reference exhibit. Since then specifications and appearance have been improved.
The Red, Green, and Blue lines on the lens barrel proudly indicate its heritage from vintage APO-LANTHAR lens designs – High Performance.
At F2, this lens is one of the fastest macro lenses available for full frame format. SAR
Macro Ratio is 1:2. Minimum Object Distance is 31cm.

NOKTON 40mm F1.2 Aspherical is the fastest 40mm lens ever made for the Full Frame format sensor. This lens is compact enough but also can produce high resolution picture due to the lens construction design optimized for Full Frame E-mount sensor.
Minimum Object Distance is 40cm. Selective Aperture Control System is available.

We re-design the lens construction of M-mount version, which is now optimized for Full Frame E-mount sensor. As NOKTON Classic 35mm F1.4 has the “Classic” in its name, this lens produce beautiful Bokeh at wide open, and sharp image at stop down.

Which one will you buy?
