Keep It Small

I live near the small town of Great Dunmow in rural north Essex, which has a small independent photographic shop called David Lipson Photography that also undertakes photography for weddings and so or. The shop always has quite a bit of new gear from Canon, Nikon and other makers, as well as a veritable Aladdin's cave of accessories and a small second-hand section. Recently, I spotted a new Nikon lens in the window, which I have been thinking about buying for while, and rang to establish the...

The Old And The

I have had this discussion with many photographers, and very often the reaction to the proposition that the ISO control is redundant seems to cause dismay The reason, I think, is that most photographers have had a technique drummed into them that it is vital to find the 'correct' exposure and also that the primary function of the exposure controls is to adjust output mage density. The demonstration on the right shows that this is not necessarily the case, which means that many of 3...

Katsuo Hanzawa Shoots The World With A Sigma Lens

A streak of light enhances this urban portrait. This intriguing portrait was taken by a Sigma lens, a large aperture prime lens with a standard focal length of 50mm. Ideal for digital SLR cameras, this lens boasts superior peripheral brightness and captures sharp images with high contrast. The F1.4 aperture enables the photographer to express a wide range of effects from landscapes to portraits with attractively out of focus backgrounds. Molded glass aspherical lens elements help correct...

Noise Reduction And Sharpening

Sharpering and noise-reduction settings are found under the Detail tab. Interestingly, the noise-reduction iuriaion is supplied by PictureCode's Noise Ninja, which is a well-known piece of image noise-rcduction software. There a'c two settings for the strength of noise reduction and for smoothness. The latter is akin to the masking option fojnd in Adobe Camera Raw, as t keeps sharp edges but softens the sharpening or textured surfaces Generally, the standard noise reduction works well, but...

The Ensign Midget

Magnus Nell, the designer of the Ensignette, had been busy. In 1918, he was grantee a patent for a new design even smaller than the Ensignette and styled with no protruding edges when folded that could catch on clothing or the inside of a handbag The design also effectively prevented accidental exposures being made when the camera was in a pocket. The European camera market was in a state of some flux during the 1920s, as rapid changes in society after he First World War brought massive social...

About The Sensors

All three of these cameras are believed to use the same Sony IMX071 sensor, as Professor Bob Newman explains My findings are consistent with all three of these cameras sharing the same sensor the pixel size is the same, and the pixel counts are consistent to the level of slightly different selection of active frame the quantum efficiency QE is the same to within the accuracy of my analysis - even the Sony Alpha 55 is consistent, taking into account the lirjit loss from its pellicle mirror which...

Ensignette 2 With Rapid Rectilineal tens, dating from just before the First World War many people think that miniature photography was originated by Leica, followed by the Contax and many otter 35mm cameras. But the trjth is that the London camera manufactirer Houghton got there first by some 15 years. The Houghton Ensignette series lacked the high optical standards and versatility of the early Leicas, but Houghton was certainly first on the scene with the concept of tie pocketable, go-anywhere...

Quantum Efficiency And Read Noise

Sensor designers work with a number of 'figures of merit', which measure the intrinsic goodness of a sensor. Two of the most mportantones are quantum efficiency and 'ead noise. Quantum efficiency is a measure of the proDortion of incident photons that a sensor turns to electrical charge and measures A camera with high quantum efficiency effectively sees mo'e photons and, since the highlight and midtone noise n an image is directly related to the number of photons in that image, it will have...
