Hasselblad unveils H4X camera body for trade-ins

Hasselblad unveils H4X camera body for trade-ins

Hasselblad has announced a new medium-format camera body called the H4X following its release of a series of H4D cameras in recent years. The H4D-40 camera unveiled early last year offered a whopping 40-megapixel CCD sensor, but it also came with a huge price tag just shy of $20,000. For those Hasselblad fans that already own previous generations of H1, H2, and H2F bodies, they can now upgrade to the H4X instead at a relatively more affordable price by trading in their existing gear.

Canon DSLRs may get aperture adjustment rings

Canon DSLRs may get aperture adjustment rings

Canon may soon be offering aperture adjustment rings for its DSLR cameras. Adjusting apertures on modern day DSLRs has been relegated to electronic controls that make it difficult to get a smooth transition between aperture settings, which is especially important when it comes to recording videos. Thanks to a patent application from Canon, we now know that they've been working on addressing this issue.

LA-EA2 Sony Lens Adapter Leaks with Mirror and Speed-Boosting AF Sensor

LA-EA2 Sony Lens Adapter Leaks with Mirror and Speed-Boosting AF Sensor

What you're seeing here in this rather confusing set of images is a leaked product from Sony, a brand new lens adapter with a brand new twist - a mirror! This is the LA-EA2, a lens adapter that allows you to put Sony's Alpha SLR lenses onto all of its smaller NEX cameras. While this sort of situation generally just has a few jimmyrigged bits making the lens not quite as awesome fitted onto the camera that's not normally meant to have the lens, this new piece of equipment has a translucent mirror inside to collect a tiny bit of light from the image as it travels into the camera, this light then sent to a phase-detection autofocus sensor in the base.

HoodCap Flower Unites Lens Cap and Hood for DSLR Cameras

Before we begin speaking about this cool new masterpiece, I must warn you that it is still a concept.

That said, we sure as heck wish this particular model was out for purchase, as immediately on the lens it certainly would go. This is the HoodCap Flower, a DSLR camera cap that twists to unfold and provide the camera then with a hood for sunshine blockage.
