Yesterday we saw the announcement of the Sony 18-110mm F/4 lens for super 35 cameras here at IBC 2016. Here is a hands-on video checking out the new features.
For FS5 and FS7 shooters, the wider focal length of 18mm will be a pleasing addition when compared top the slightly longer 28mm (equivalent to 27-165mm in full frame). The Sony 18-110mm has a constant aperture of F/4, and, weighing only 1105 grams, it keeps camera setups compact and light.
Sony 18-110mm features and specs at a glance:
18-110mm focal length (27-167mm full frame equivalent).
Constant F/4 aperture.
Smooth Motion Optics minimizes breathing, axial shift and focus shifting.
Reversable zoom control (change the zoom ring direction from clockwise to anti clockwise).
New removable lens tripod mount.
New removable lens cover and lens cap included.
The new lens will be around €3,999 ($4,500 from B&H) and will be available from December 2016. For the full article please click here.
A few days ago Samsung announced their first video shooting large sensor camera. The Samsung NX1 can shoot 4K on an APS-C sized sensor. Furthermore the camera is the first to make use of the new H.265 codec.
What’s remarkable about this camera is not just its price point ($1,499 at B&H) but Samsung’s decision to move with a 4K Super35 sensor (APS-C) into the HVEC H.265 codec space. The new codec succeeds the very common H.264 codec and is capable of providing ProRes quality at 1% of the file size (5Mbit bitrate for 500Mbit video quality).
Samsung NX1 product manager Mr. Sung Lae Park also mentioned that the camera would have a clean 4:2:2 hdmi output for external recorders.
