Earlier this year, rumors began spreading of an upcoming Sony Medium Format camera that would be unlike any digital medium format system on the market. The camera would be ‘completely different’ and reports claimed it would also be the cheapest digital medium format option out there.
Well, if you found that rumor far-fetched, hold on to your hats, because a ‘very good source’ is reporting that this rangefinder-styled camera is indeed real… and what’s more, it will have some competition when it arrives. Read more…
The battle of the CMOS-sensored medium format cameras continues! Earlier today, Mamiya Leaf jumped into the fray when it announced the brand new Leaf Credo 50, a medium format digital back that boasts Sony’s very popular 50-megapixel CMOS sensor.
Photographers can now use their iPad or iPhone to view images remotely during a photo shoot — if they’ve got a Leaf or a Mamiya digital back. Today, Mamiya and Leaf announced the release of a new App compatible with Leaf backs, as well as Mamiya’s DM-series and RZ33 digital cameras and backs. When tethered shooting on a Mac, the Leaf Capture Remote v 2.0 App allows one or more iPad or iPhone to function as a remote image viewer over Wi-Fi.
There is no live view mode, but images are available to view as they are taken. There are obvious benefits to workflow with this sort of program, since the photographer can move around while reviewing the results from shots. Also, several people can view and flip through the images on different devices, which could come in handy in large photo shoots.
The App is free from the Apple store, and works in tandem with Leaf’s Capture server, which must be installed on your computer.
