Leaked images of the new Profoto C1 Plus. Will cost 499 Euro

Share

Profoto  is making a big fuzz about a new product that will “change the world”. Well don’t get too excited folks :)

They will announce this new Profoto C1 Plus for 499 Euro:

An anonymous source explained to me what  this is:

Actually it’s tiny sized flash designed exclusively to work with iPhones. A flash triggered by the iPhone, fr studio like pictures. apparently there will be a dedicated app to drive the flash from the iPhone, and both will interact via bluetooth.

So definitely NOT something for us Alpha shooters :(

Red Jungle Fowl
Singapore 🇸🇬
Iso2500, S4000, F4
The closest I have ever taken and cropped of this amazing Red Jungle Fowl at PRP, flying across the river.
This fowl flew really close to the bridge, and filled the frame of my 428mm with 1.4xTC.
A9 20fps caught all the different Fowl in Flight action

Thingyfy Pinhole Pro S review by Marc Alhadeff

Share

Marc Alhadeff tested the Thingyfy Pinhole Pro S you can buy on BHphoto:

For 80 euros the Thingyfy Pinhole pro S give a wide angle pinhole that delivers consistent and decent results

By design , there is no focusing and depth of field is infinite , you just need to take care of framing, but this is not so obvious as with a tiny hole the F stop si extremely small (F73) and there is not a lot of light hitting the sensor

Using it is quite fun and you can produce very old school vintage photo. Both colors and Black and white works nicely

With the extremely low aperture linked to a 0.14mm hole (= F73) you need a lot of sun to shoot handled and ISO is going high to extremely high and speed quite low (Sony SteadyShot stabilization will help here)

Shooting on tripod with long exposure can also be a solution

For the usage on the field , with standard settings, the visor will be often very dark and you should assign the “Bright Monitoring” function to one custom button to be able to frame and shoot at ease. This one will boost your screen and allow to “see in the dark”

It is recommended to add a protection filter on the pinhole thanks to the filter thread , this will avoid some dust hit the sensor through the hole

Reminder:

You can now preorder the world’s first Pinhole Pro X 18-36mm zoom lens on Kickstarter (Click here). The lens costs $41 and will ship out in November. You save 30% over the regular price!
