Mission to cross the smartphone and the mirrorless: China announced an Android camera with Canon EF mount and a 16-megapixel Four Thirds

Every smartphone manufacturer is trying to offer users the best, in his opinion, the camera. The people who do that very well, someone resorts to proven solutions, but some do, and do not bother. But there are examples of “reverse” – when the camera integrated into the smartphone, and, in fact, the smartphone is integrated into the camera. This is the path chosen for the device called YN450 Chinese company Yongnuo.

The hybrid that we see in the image, it is, in fact, a mirrorless camera running Android OS 7.1 c image sensor format Four Thirds 16mp and Canon EF mount. YN450 allows you to save photos in RAW and record 4K video with a frame rate of 30 fps. Control of all settings is done as in any mobile – using the touch screen. Its diagonal is 5 inches, and resolution – 1920 x 1080 pixels.

The Profoto A1 was released in 2017. According to Profoto, development A1 took four years. Elements of its design are protected by seven patents. In addition, the annular magnetic mount and led lighting filed patent applications. Seven of the patents relate to the design of the device. Flash Godox V1 was first shown last fall at the exhibition Photokina. When the representatives of the Profoto saw her, they warned competitors from release Godox V1 to market. However, the Chinese did not heed the warning, and negotiations with them in what have not resulted.

Previously, Profoto turned a blind eye to small violations of this kind, but such blatant copying can not be ignored. The Swedish manufacturer is going to protect their investment in R & d and design, so according to him not only the Godox, but also importers and trade enterprises, which will promote the spread of V1, should be ready to answer for the breach in court.

Referring to the famous Japanese photographer Kimio Tanaka (Kimio Tanaka), who has published interesting information about the products Pentax, the source was supplemented with detail plans for Pentax, as reflected in the recently updated chart of issue lenses. Reviews for each of the six items of the plan are given below and numbered according to the illustration.

Стали известны некоторые подробности о запланированных к выпуску объективах Pentax

1. Standard zoom lens DA (APS-C) will have a constant maximum aperture of f/2.8 and refer to the range of ★. Currently plays that role model smc PENTAX-DA★16-50mm F2.8 ED AL [IF] SDM. According to Tanaka, most likely, the novelty will be an updated version of this lens, perhaps with slightly altered focal range. At its output you can expect at the end of 2020 or in the spring of 2021.

2. Wide-angle lens with a fixed focal length and a large maximum aperture and full-frame will almost certainly include a line of ★. With a focal length of the manufacturer has not yet decided, but it will likely be equal to 24 mm. Other options considered — 28 and 35 mm. Maximum aperture is equal to f/1.4. This lens will be released before the end of 2021.

3. On the extreme wide angle lens with a fixed focal distance data while almost no, it is not even clear whether it will be full frame. Most likely, the focal distance is 20 mm before the end of 2020 seems unlikely.

4. The model layout HD PENTAX-D FA★85mm F1.4 was shown at CP + 2019. This lens, along with already released a similar model with a focal length of 50 mm and projected wide-angle model (see paragraph 2) creates a series of fast fixes high class. Its output is expected next year.

5. Model HD PENTAX FA D FA 70-200mm F4, the release of which in the previous graph have been scheduled for spring this year, apparently, is not ready yet. Anyway, spring has arrived, but at the exhibition CP+ was not shown even the layout, and the release schedule is gone. It is still possible that the lens will be released this year.

6. Zoom telephoto lens will probably cover the focal range of the 55-300 or 70-300 mm. It will be full frame, and its strengths are the small size, weight and price. Of course, it will have to live with a small maximum aperture — что0нибудь in the manner of f/4.5 to f/5.6 or even f/4.5-f/6,5. This lens will be released around 2021.
