CamFi Announces CamFi Pro Plus

Share

Press text:

Guangdong, CHINA—DECEMBER 18, 2018—CamFi, maker of wireless camera controllers, announced the release of CamFi Pro Plus today. This new product adds the wireless tethering feature for 500+ cameras, including Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fuji, Pentax and more. All DSLR cameras which support USB tethering can be supported by CamFi Pro Plus.

“This is a big step for tethering technology,” said Mark Ma, the CEO of CamFi Limited. “It will improve the productivity for the professional photographers greatly, without any study cost.” With wireless tethering, there is need for a USB cable to connect the camera and computer. CamFi Pro Plus also allows photographers to keep using familiar tools, such as Capture One, Lightroom, EOS utility, Sony Pixel and so forth, directly via WiFi.

CamFi Pro Plus adds the third party tethering service. It can send USB data to the client device directly through a WiFi connection. When a camera is connected with CamFi Pro Plus, the laptop which connects to it will act as if the USB device plugged into it directly. In tests, the maximum Wi-Fi speed can achieve 10M Bytes/second. For a 20M raw photo, for example, this translates into need only about three seconds to transfer with Capture One.
The third party tethering service of CamFi Pro Plus supports Windows and Mac. The price of CamFi Pro Plus is $339. It can be ordered via CamFi web site. All the existing customers of CamFi Pro can order the upgrade service for $40.

New Sony patents discloses details about the new 135mm f/1.8 and 100mm f/1.4 FE lenses!

Share

Well this is an exciting news: I just spotted these newly published Sony patents describing the optical design of two new fast lenses:

135mm f/1.8 FE
100mm f/1.4 FE

Of course a patent is never a guarantee that Sony will bring those lenses into mass production. But I think in that case there is a very high chance these lenses are coming for real! I bet the 135mm f/1.8 will be one of the next E-mount lenses we will get from Sony!

Here are all details:

Small bad news: Tamron raised the price of the 28-75mm FE lens. You now get it for $879 (instead of the previous $799) at Amazon, Bhphoto, FocusCamera and Adorama.

The lens is still hard to find in Stock. I hope Tamron will increase the production of the current lens and for the future rumored new 70-200mm f/2.8 FE lens.

Sony’s competition isn’t sleeping and there are quite some news to report:

Sharp:
This is a surprise. Sharp is the first company announcing an 8K mirrorless system camera. It has a MFT mount and full specs will be unveiled at NAB show in April. The cool thing is that it has a 5inch flip out screen. Would lo ve to get that one on a Sony! More info at MirrorlessRumors.

Canon:
Canon officially confirmed that “8K video capable camera is already in our EOS R-series roadmap”. More info at CanonWatch.

Nikon:
Nikon announced a new update Z lens roadmap. I love those f/1.8 primes and I think Sony should make them too! More info at Nikoneye.
Nikon also said that it will add Eye AF, Raw video on Z6-Z7 cameras via firmware upgrade. More info at Mirrorlessrumors.

Panasonic:
Panasonic confirmed their S1-S1R cameras will have HLG stills shooting mode. More info at L-rumors.

To sum up the “features” Sony doesn’t have right now and that the competition “announced”:
– 8K video
– 5 inch flip out screen
– f/1.8 primes
– RAW video
– HLG stills

Take note Sony…
