Capture One Pro for Black and White Conversion
Capture One Pro has one of the best (if not the best) B&W conversion option of any software application to date. Here we give you a mini-sampler of its capabilities. Black and white images are probably most authentic and compelling when the original image was conceived with the idea of it being in mono. Typically that means it was originally composed without strong colour influences, but that’s not necessarily so. Take the image above as an example, it was one of series captured with the 50MP Fujifilm GFX-50R and the 45mm F2.8, equivalent to a FF 35mm, and it works well either in colour or B&W. So how do you…
Hasselblad Announces X1D II 50C camera and XCD 35-75mm F3.5-4.5 Zoom (Updated)
Hasselblad has announced an update to its cropped medium format mirrorless camera, in the form of the new X1D II 50C. Although it shares the same 50MP cropped (essentially 44 x 33mm) MF CMOS sensor as the original, it has some improved features and a new processor to speed up operation. This includes quicker start-up (now just under 4 seconds, from my time with the camera at the London launch) and continuous shooting now at 2.7fps, while black-out times between shots has also been reduced, claim the company. Other improvements include a new, larger 3.6-in 2.36-million-dot touchscreen at the rear with some menu and UI changes. The viewfinder display has…
Fujifilm announces upcoming GFX 100 with IBIS
In addition to announcing the new rangefinder-style Fujifilm GFX 50R and three new lenses, see here for more details, Fuji took the opportunity to make a development announcement. The 102MP GFX 100 medium format camera is a more conventionally styled model than the current GFX 50S and will include on-sensor PDAF across the entire frame. Information is sparse but the 102 megapixel sensor in the GFX 100 is expected to be 43.8 x 32.2mm sensor, like that found in the 50S and 50R models. The GFX 100 also features sensor-based image stabilization – a first in medium format, and 4K video from the X Processor 4 engine. A mock-up was shown…
Fujifilm announces rangefinder-esque GFX 50R and three lenses
Fujifilm has announced the GFX 50R, a rangefinder-styled medium format model based on the earlier GFX 50S. It adopts the same the 51.4-MP cropped medium format sensor (43.8 x 32.2mm) as its sibling and much of the rest of the internals, albeit in a smaller, more compact body and with a significantly lower ticket. The GFX 50R adds Bluetooth connectivity with a smartphone, and offers similar build and weatherproofing as the 50S. The built-in OLED viewfinder is a smaller 3.69M-dot unit but offers a reasonably generous 0.77x magnification. At the rear, the 3.2-in 2360K-dot touchscreen LCD uses a conventional tilting mechanism. The 50R has dual SD card slots with support for…
