Lomography launches new high-contrast LomoChrome Metropolis film in multiple formats

Lomography has unveiled LomoChrome Metropolis, a product the company claims is the first color film stock to be offered in 35mm, 120, 110, and 16mm options in more than five years. LomoChrome Metropolis is an original color negative emulsion from Lomography that offers very high contrast combined with muted colors for what the company describes as ?an intense aesthetic pop.?

The LomoChrome Metropolis features an extended 100-400 ISO range alongside a fine cine-style grain, ?optimized sharpness,? and compatibility with the C-41 process. The film produces deep blacks and curved highlights, an ?aggressive tonal curve,? and ultimately offers analog photographers a way to go ?#nofilter? while enjoying the dramatic look typically reserved for digital apps.

Below is a collection of sample images captured on LomoChrome Metropolis:

As the company has done repeatedly in the past, Lomography is launching the LomoChrome Metropolis film on Kickstarter, where interested buyers have the chance to back the product with pledges. Different pledge options are available, including 10 rolls of 35mm and/or 120 film for pledges of at lest $98 USD, five rolls of 110 film for at least $35 USD, 10 rolls of 110 film for at least $65 USD, among other options.

Canon files patent application for barndoor-style lens cap that you can't lose

An illustration from the patent application filing that details the closed (left) and opened (right) states of the lens cap.

If there?s one thing you can count on as a photographer, it?s that you will, at some point in your career, lose a lens cap?or three. This issue has been addressed over the years through both first-party and third-party solution, but Canon seems interested in creating its own solution, according to a recent patent application.

Japanese Patent Application 2019-113645 details a barndoor-style lens cap that folds open when shooting and collapses shut when the lens isn?t in use. As translated in the patent application:

?The present invention works as a lens hood function at the time of shooting and as a lens protection function at the time of non-shooting, thus eliminating the need for lens cap attachment/removal and barrier opening/closing operations.?

The design, of course, has its trade-offs compared to traditional lens caps. While it would make it all but impossible to lose a lens cap, the small gaps in the design could still allow for dust, dirt and moisture to get in and the design would all but eliminate the option to use filters on the front of the camera.

An exploded view of the individual components used to make up the lens cap.

Based on the patent application, it also appears as though Canon?s proposed lens cap would only work with lenses that have extending barrels. Whether or not this particular design could work with existing lenses or would rely on entirely new lens designs remains to be seen, but it doesn?t look like internal zoom/focus lenses would work with this particular design.

A close-up look at the mechanism that opens the four doors when the lens barrel is extended and closes them when the lens barrel is retracted.

It?s also worth noting that although the illustrations in the patent show what appears to be a generic DSLR design, Canon only ever says ?digital camera? in the translated patent text. So it?s very possible this would only ever make its way to Canon point-and-shoot cameras, most of which rely on a leaf-style shutter as it stands.

Of course, it?s always possible Canon is just covering its bases with a new design with no definitive intention of bringing it to market. After all, Canon did take the third spot in worldwide patents in 2016, according to research firm IFI Claims Patent Services, behind only Samsung and IBM, respectively.

Sony introduces the a7R IV with 61 Megapixel full-frame sensor

Sony has introduced the a7R IV, which the company calls 'another milestone in mirrorless', at an event in New York City.

The camera has a full-frame 61MP BSI-CMOS sensor with a claimed 15 stops of dynamic range (it's the first new sensor since 2015, according to Sony). It has a hybrid AF system with 567 PDAF and 425 contrast-detect point, and 74% frame coverage. There's also real-time eye, human and animal AF. The camera can shoot at 10 fps with continuous AF for up to 68 photos.

The body has been redesigned, with upgraded weather-sealing, including foam gaskets around the battery and card doors, and raised lips around all the connectors that, along with rubber port doors prevent water from working its way around the seal. There'a also a significantly deeper grip, a larger joystick and repositioned, 'newly designed' buttons and dials. There's also a 5.76M-dot EVF, dual UHS-II card slots and USB-C. The camera also has 802.11ac Wi-Fi plus Bluetooth and NFC.

Kenji Tanaka, Global Head Of Sony's ILC business, shows off the a7R IV

The a7R IV uses the NP-FZ100 battery, which can take approximately 670 shots using the LCD and 530 using the EVF, based on CIPA standard testing. A battery grip, which holds two FZ100s, is priced at $400.

As with its predecessor, the a7R IV has built-in 5-axis image stabilization, which can reduce shake by up to 5.5 stops, according to Sony. It has the same Bionz X processor and tilting 1.44M-dot touchscreen display as the Mark III.

If you drop down to APS-C crop mode you get 26 Megapixel images, with near-total-frame AF coverage and 325 PDAF points.

The Pixel Shift mode can captures 960 Megapixels worth of data by compositing 16 images, which can be processed via Sony's Imaging Edge software to create 240MP photos. Users have a choice of 16-shot mode that makes 1/2 pixel shifts or a 4-shot mode that makes full pixel shifts. Using the 1/2 shift mode you get twice the spatial resolution and full color at each pixel, while the full shift mode (which uses 4 images) just cancels out the Bayer filter.

The a7R IV can capture oversampled 4K/30p video with touch tracking and real-time Eye AF, and support for 8-bit S-Log2/3 and HLG. When using the Super 35 crop there is an additional 1.2x crop at 30p and 1.1x at 24p. As with its predecessor, the top bit rate is 100Mbps using XAVC S.

There's also a new digital interface between the the microphone and camera, making the a7R IV the first camera to accept digital audio input. To go along with that there's a new microphone and an XLR adapter, both of which have built-in ADCs to provide digital signal to the camera (but which also have analog output modes to retain compatibility with older cameras). You can read more about those here.

The camera includes new connectivity options, thanks to the addition of 5GHz Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi can now be used for tethered shooting as well.

The a7R IV will ship in September for $3500.

NEW YORK ? July 16, 2019 ? Sony Electronics Inc. today announced the latest addition to its acclaimed Alpha 7R series full-frame mirrorless camera line-up: the extremely versatile, powerful Alpha 7R IV (model ILCE-7RM4).

Sony?s highest resolution full-frame camera ever, the new Alpha 7R IV delivers stunning image quality with high resolution and wide dynamic range while maintaining outstanding focusing performance, high-speed continuous shooting and much, much more.

?We are continuing to drive innovation, break boundaries and redefine the expectations of digital camera performance,? said Neal Manowitz, deputy president of Imaging Product and Solutions Americas at Sony Electronics. ?The new Alpha 7R IV combines medium format-level image quality with high-speed shooting, extremely fast focusing and an extensive list of upgrades to design, connectivity and usability. This will allow professional photographers, videographers and all other types of creators to capture content in ways that were simply not possible before.?

A New Level of Image Quality

The new Alpha 7R IV features a newly developed 35mm full-frame, back-illuminated CMOS image sensor with a resolution of 61.0 MP[ii], the world?s first[i] of its kind. The new sensor?s back-illuminated structure and effective noise reduction techniques combine to deliver extremely low-noise and high-sensitivity performance, ensuring the absolute maximum image quality. The camera also boasts an impressive 15-stop[iii] dynamic range at low sensitivities, resulting in smooth natural gradations ranging from deep shadows to highlights, and utilizes algorithms from many of the latest Alpha cameras to maintain outstanding color reproduction.

This new full-frame model is equipped with an innovative 5-axis, optical in-body image stabilization system that has been fine-tuned to support its high-resolution shooting capacity, resulting in a shutter speed advantage of 5.5-steps[x]. Additionally, the shutter unit assembly has been carefully redesigned to reduce even the slightest movement that may cause blur.

The Alpha 7R IV also includes Sony?s highest resolution viewfinder ever, a 5.76 million dot UXGA OLED Tru-finder EVF. About 1.6x the resolution of the EVF in the Alpha 7R III, this new viewfinder provides an extremely accurate, true-to-life depiction of the scene being framed. The display quality can be set to ?Standard? or ?High? mode, and to either 60 fps or 120 fps refresh rate to best match the subject and shooting conditions.

Additionally, the new camera features an evolved Pixel Shift Multi Shooting[xi] mode that composites up to 16 full-resolution images. In this mode, the camera precisely shifts the sensor in one pixel or half-pixel increments to capture 16 separate pixel-shifted images containing a total of 963.2 million pixels of data, which are then composited into a 240.8 million pixel (19008 x 12672 pixels) image using Sony?s ?Imaging Edge?? desktop application[xii]. Ideal for photographing architecture, art or any other still life subject, this enhanced mode produces photographs with a level of detail and color accuracy that is simply stunning.

Shooting and Focusing Speed

The innovative new Alpha 7R IV full-frame mirrorless camera can shoot full resolution images at up to 10 fps[iv] with continuous, accurate AF/AE tracking for up to approximately seven seconds[v] in full-frame, full-resolution mode (JPEG / RAW), and approx. three times as long in APS-C crop mode delivering 26.2MP[ii] images. These high-speed options ensure that fast moving subjects can be captured with extreme accuracy and incredible image detail.

The upgraded focusing system of the Alpha 7R IV is comprised of 567 focal-plane phase-detection AF points that cover approximately 74 percent of the image area. There are also 425 contrast AF points that add extra precision and reliability for low light and other situations that are best served by contrast AF. The higher AF sensor density and refined tracking algorithms of the new camera produce a notable improvement in tracking performance, allowing complex subject motion and sudden subject movements to be reliably tracked with greater precision than ever.

The Alpha 7R IV also supports Real-time Eye AF, which employs artificial intelligence to detect and process eye location data in real-time, locking and maintaining focus on the subject?s eye with extreme precision. This is available for both animal and human subjects, with either animal or human Eye AF mode selectable depending on the shooting situation. Real-time Tracking[vii] is available as well, which utilizes a newly developed subject recognition algorithm to ensure the ultimate subject tracking and persistence of the focusing system. There is also an anti-flicker shooting[xiii] mode, which automatically detects the presence of fluorescent or artificial lighting in a shooting environment to minimize any impact on the final image.

Enhanced Connectivity for Professional Workflow

Sony?s new Alpha 7R IV full-frame camera is equipped with a variety of advanced connectivity features designed to enhance professional workflow. The new model includes wireless LAN functionality to support the conventional 2.4 GHz band, as well as a high-speed 5 GHz[xiv] band for faster, more stable data transfer. Wireless PC remote connectivity (wireless tethering shooting)[viii] is also available on the new Alpha 7R IV, a first for Sony cameras. Requested by many working professionals, this allows for much more freedom in studio and location shoots, letting the photographer move around freely and without restriction.

In addition to high-speed Wi-Fi and wireless PC connectivity[viii], the new full-frame camera is equipped with a SuperSpeed USB (USB 3.2 Gen 1) USB Type-C? connector that supports extremely fast wired data transmission, with almost doubled data transfer speed achieved in combination with Sony?s Imaging Edge software (compared to the Alpha 7R III). It also supports FTP data transfer with background transfer capability, allowing photographers to send images to a specified FTP remote server while they are still shooting or reviewing images.

To support an efficient, high-speed, connected professional workflow, Sony has announced version 2.0 of its ?Imaging Edge? desktop applications (?Remote?/?Viewer?/?Edit?)[xiii]. The ?Remote? application allows users to control cameras and monitor live shooting on their PC screen; the ?Viewer? application is used to quickly preview, rate and select photos from large libraries; and the ?Edit? application can develop RAW data into high-quality photos for delivery.

To maximize convenience in image transfer, when utilizing the latest version of Sony?s Imaging Edge Mobile? application[xv], the camera can now transfer images to a connected smartphone even if the camera?s power is set to OFF[xvi].

High-resolution 4K and Professional Filmmaking Features

In addition to its impressive still image capabilities, the new Alpha 7R IV performs exceptionally well as a serious filmmaking tool, offering 4K (3840x2160 pixels) video recording across the full width of the image sensor, and full pixel readout without pixel binning in Super 35mm mode[ix]. This ensures high-quality 4K footage with exceptional detail and depth. S-Log 2 and S-Log 3 are also available to maximize color grading flexibility, with S-Log 3 offering a total of 14-stops of dynamic range. Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG)[xvii] is also available on the Alpha 7R IV to support an Instant HDR workflow.

For video autofocus, the versatile new full-frame camera utilizes a refined Fast Hybrid AF system that achieves faster, smoother, more stable autofocus during video shooting ? even if an object temporarily moves in front of the intended subject. The camera also includes Touch Tracking functionality during movie shooting, allowing the user to simply touch the screen on their intended subject for instant acquisition.

The new Alpha 7R IV debuts Real-time Eye AF for movie shooting, a first in any of Sony?s cameras. When activated, the eye of a subject is automatically tracked with high precision and reliability, allowing the shooter to focus on the content itself as opposed to what is in focus or not. The aforementioned Touch Tracking functionality will also automatically initiate Eye AF when a human subject is selected.

Another notable video feature is the addition of a digital audio interface to the camera?s Multi Interface Shoe? (MI Shoe), allowing a direct, digital connection from the new ECM-B1M Shotgun Microphone or XLR-K3M XLR Adaptor Kit for clear, low-noise and high-quality audio recording. Interval shooting for creating time-lapse videos is available, as well as full HD recording at up to 120 fps, Slow and Quick Motion[xviii] functions and much more.

Enhanced Build, Design and Customizability

The new Alpha 7R IV has several upgrades to its design and usability, with many adjustments being implemented directly from the voice of Sony?s professional community.

To maximize durability, the new Alpha 7R IV features upgraded dust and moisture resistance[xix], with additional sealing provided at all body seams, battery compartment cover and media slots. The camera is built with an extremely lightweight and durable magnesium alloy and also has an upgraded six screw, extra-firm lens mount.

Additional enhancements to the body design include an improved grip for greater comfort and a more sure hold within the hand; an increase in the diameter and feedback for the ?AF-ON? button; a new multi-selector joystick design for improvised control; an exposure compensation dial lock button; and a redesigned shape and new position for the rear dial. A strong request from many professional users, the new camera also includes two UHS-II compatible media slots, allowing for higher overall capacity and faster read/write speeds.

For added convenience, camera setting registration is expanded. Now, almost all camera settings can be saved to, and read from, an inserted memory card. Up to 10 combinations can be saved to any individual cardand loaded into any camera body of the same model.

Despite its increased pixel count compared to the Alpha 7R III, the battery life has been improved with a CIPA measurement of up to 670 still images per change using LCD monitor, or 530 images with EVF. For even more uninterrupted operating time, the new optional VG-C4EM Vertical Grip holds two NP-FZ100 batteries, and the optional Multi Battery Adaptor (NPA-MQZ1K) can hold up to four Z batteries. The body can also be powered via the USB connector[xx].

Incredible total solar eclipse hyperlapse captured from a drone

Being in the right place, at the right time, with the proper gear is everything when it comes to capturing a phenomenon from a unique perspective. Photographer and astronomer Matt Robinson happened to be in Chile on July 2nd where the only total solar eclipse of 2019 occurred. Robinson created a hyperlapse of the event using his DJI Mavic 2 Pro drone.

?I wasn?t sure if it was going to work but I didn?t want to use it manually because I wanted to watch what was my first-ever eclipse,? Robinson told PetaPixel. ?Around 10 minutes before totality, the drone was sent up above our camp and programmed to fly along and above the spectacular Elqui Valley in Chile.? Robinson said, ?I stood there with my hands on my head, mouth gawping at what looked like a portal to another dimension opening just above the horizon.?

The Mavic 2 Pro and Zoom, released in late 2018, are the first DJI drones that feature the Hyperlapse Mode. This makes it relatively simple to capture a time-lapse. Coupled with the Mavic 2's Hasselblad camera, it's not surprising the footage turned out well. 'It had captured the shadow of the moon traveling through the valley and right over us,' said Robinson.

PSA: Privately shared Google Photos links can be opened by anyone

Robert Wiblin, a researcher at 80,000 Hours, has published a Medium post drawing attention to an aspect of sharing on Google Photos that many users may be unaware of. As demonstrated in the video above, Wiblin notes that Google Photos images and albums privately shared with a specific person can be viewed by anyone who has access to the link.

The discovery highlights a surprising design oversight by Google. A Google Photos user who privately shares an image or album with another Google user may have their image viewed repeatedly by anyone if the recipient copies and shares the link for the image or album.

Wiblin points out that the Google Photos interface doesn't indicate that by sharing the image or album privately with a specific person, the user is creating a link that provides access to anyone who receives it. This potentially leaves images vulnerable to theft, particularly if the recipient accidentally shares the link with someone else. Users can only prevent this issue by manually removing the share from the image or album.

This link generation differs from Google Drive, which allows users to make shared content accessible only to the chosen recipient(s). Google Drive users who transition to Google Photos may mistakenly believe the two services use the same sharing system, not realizing that Google Photos is generating links that can be opened by anyone.

Google has a small note revealing the sharable link's wide accessibility at the bottom of its expandable 'What happens when you share' section on the Google Photos support site. ?Anyone that has the shared link will be able to see the album,? the support site states, even if the share was directed to a specific recipient. Google points users to instructions on how to stop sharing content if they no longer want it visible to others.

Though Google does note the publicly accessible nature of the shared links, one could argue that the company needs to make this explicitly clear on the Google Photos interface, not simply nestled within a support page that most users are unlikely to visit.
