Press Release: Nikon DL 18-50 f/1.8-2.8, DL 24-85 f/1.8-2.8 and DL 24-500 f/2.8-5.6 Announced

Nikon is entering the 1"-type premium compact market by introducing three new models: the Nikon DL18-50, DL24-85 and DL-24-500. Between them, they cover pretty much every focal length. All three DL models share the same sensor, image processor, autofocus system and support for 4K video (with clean HDMI output, no less).

Sensor-wise, the DLs uses a 20.8MP 1"-type BSI CMOS sensor. It's paired with the new EXPEED 6A image processor, which allows for a top ISO of 12800 and 4K/UHD video recording at 30p. All three cameras have 'Dual Detect VR', which combines data from the cameras' angular velocity sensors and the scene itself to reduce shake. They also have fluorine coatings on their lenses to keep moisture and oil away. Each camera also has a manual focus ring around the lens.

They also have 3" touch-enabled OLED displays with the 18-50 and 24-85 having the ability to tilt and the 24-500 having a fully articulating screen. They all have Wi-Fi with NFC, plus Nikon's 'SnapBridge' technology, which uses Bluetooth to maintain a connection between camera and phone, so there's no need to re-pair. Battery life on all three DL models is rated at 290 shots/charge (per the CIPA standard).

One of the features that may set the DLs apart from the other 1"-type cameras is its Hybrid AF system, which combines 105 phase-detect with 171 contrast-detect points. This allows the camera to shoot at 20 fps with continuous autofocus. If you can live with single AF, then the DLs can shoot even faster: 60 fps.

Nikon DL18-50

The DL 18-50 is the widest lens of any enthusiast compact on the market. It has an equivalent focal length of 18-50mm and a fast maximum aperture range of f1.8-2.8. The lens has a 3-stop ND filter and is Nikon's first compact to have a Nano Crystal Coating, which reduces flare and ghosting. The lens has seven aperture blades and has a top shutter speed of 1/1600 sec (an electronic shutter, found on all three models, maxes out at 1/16000 sec). There is also built-in perspective correction, which is especially useful when shooting architecture.

The camera has full manual exposure control, Raw support, tilting touch OLED display and aforementioned 4K/30p support. The DL18-50 also supports an optional tilting OLED electronic viewfinder with 2.36M dots. The 18-50 is the only one of the camera cameras to lack a built-in flash, though like its siblings it does have a hot shoe.

Nikon DL24-85

The DL 24-85 is very similar to the DL 18-50, both inside and out. The main difference is its lens, which is a 24-85mm equivalent f1.8-2.8 model, however it lacks an ND filter and the Nano Crystal Coating. Its standout feature is the ability to take life-size, 1:1 macro photos, with a minimum focus distance of 3cm. Macro shooters can also take advantage of focus peaking and bracketing as well as manual priority AF.

Nikon DL24-500

For those seeking a long zoom model, there's the DL 24-500. As its name implies, it has a 24-500mm equivalent lens, with a max aperture range of f2.8-5.6. The 24-500 has a fully articulating display and a built-in OLED viewfinder. It's also the only of the DL models with a mic input jack, with support for Nikon's ME-1 shotgun mic.

All three cameras will be available in early summer with suggested retail prices of $649 (24-85), $849 (18-50), and $999 (24-500). No price yet on the EVF.

Pairing a Large 1-Inch Sensor with Superior NIKKOR Lens Technology, Nikon’s New Compact DL24-85, DL18-50 and DL24-500 Will Help Capture Stunning Images and 4K UHD Video

MELVILLE, NY (Monday, February 22, 2016 at 11:01 P.M. EST) – Today, Nikon Inc. announced the new DL Series of premium compact cameras. These pocketable yet powerful imaging tools offer an elite level of imaging prowess that fits easily in one’s palm. Equipped with a variety of focal lengths optimized for different types of shooters, the DL24-85, DL18-50 and DL24-500 combine powerful NIKKOR optics with a large 20.8-megapixel (CX-format) 1-inch BSI CMOS sensor to produce stunning image quality and amazingly detailed images, even when shooting in low-light. Cameras in the new DL line will also feature powerful performance, with high-speed Autofocus (AF) and 20 frames-per-second (60 fps with fixed AF) continuous shooting capability for fast action moments, as well as 4K UHD video recording for users to tell their stories in new ways. Ergonomically designed and familiar for advanced users, all three cameras will utilize the new Nikon SnapBridge connectivity to make it easier than ever to shoot and share with ease.

“We recognize consumers’ desire for smaller cameras capable of outstanding image quality,” said Masahiro Horie, Director of Marketing and Planning, Nikon Inc. “With the new DL line, Nikon is proud to fuse legendary NIKKOR optics with the latest innovations in imaging to provide advanced photographers amazingly compact tools capable of capturing photos and video that even the most discerned professional would be proud of.”

The Nikon DL Series: Powerful Performance, Superior Optics

The new DL line of premium compact cameras packs innovative and powerful imaging technology into elegantly designed yet remarkably compact camera bodies, making it easier than ever to carry pure imaging prowess in the palm of one’s hand. All of these new cameras are designed with a 20.8-megapixel CX-format (1-inch) BSI CMOS sensor, which when combined with fast, high quality NIKKOR glass, help to create stunning image quality for stills or 4K UHD video. Working alongside the new sensor is the new EXPEED 6A image processor that allows for impressive noise reduction and powerful, fast performance, making it possible to capture stunning low-light street photography, beautiful portraits or spectacular landscapes with ease.

For fleeting moments and fast-action, the DL line incorporates a high-speed hybrid autofocus (AF) system featuring 105 phase detect focus areas (with 171 focus points in contrast detect AF mode), as well as continuous shooting up to an incredible 20 fps, with capability to capture up to a blazing fast 60 fps with focus locked on the first frame. The DL series also features Dual Detect Optical VR technology to compensate for camera shake while handheld or at slower shutter speeds.

Continuing the impressive legacy of NIKKOR glass, each new DL camera features a unique lens design capable of amazing resolution and beautiful background blur (bokeh), with impressively fast apertures. The lens barrel also includes a manual focus ring, giving users enhanced control over focus on any subject.

Each NIKKOR lens is also equipped with a fluorine coating that helps repel dirt, water and oil, and also facilitates easy cleaning. For the first time in a Nikon compact camera, the DL18-50’s NIKKOR lens will utilize Nano Crystal Coat to help reduce ghost and flare, particularly useful when shooting at a wide-angle. With the best NIKKOR technologies now integrated into compact camera models, users will be able to capture phenomenal images with amazing detail time and time again.

Control and Versatility

The DL24-85, DL18-50 and DL24-500 put creative control in the hands of each photographer and are all operated using the familiar Nikon DSLR menu design and an assortment of physical controls. The series also supports RAW (NEF) image capture, full PSAM manual controls and over 20 preset creative options, for use in both still and video shooting (including Picture Control, Creative mode, Multiple Exposure Lighten) to help challenge each user to expand their photographic horizons.

The DL line provides the tools to frame nearly every shot, with all three cameras sporting high-resolution 1,037k-dot OLED Touch displays. While the DL24-85 and DL18-50 allow for tilting, the DL24-500’s display provides full Vari-angle capability, vitally important when shooting from unique perspectives. Even further customization and control is possible utilizing the hot shoe/accessory shoe available on DL24-85 and DL18-50 models that allows for complete system expandability with the DF-E1 optional electronic viewfinder. The DL24-500 also sports a hot shoe and a stereo microphone input jack, while all three models are compatible with Nikon i-TTL Speedlights.

Seamlessly Shoot and Share

Nikon SnapBridge makes it easier than ever to shoot and share amazing images with friends and family. Available throughout Nikon’s newest line of premium compacts, SnapBridge utilizes Bluetooth®1 low energy technology (BLE) to provide an “always on” connection to a compatible2 smart device. Users can now seamlessly send images from their camera to a smart device (utilizing the new SnapBridge app) for easy sharing via social networks or to the cloud for instant storage. An unlimited number of thumbnails and 20 GB of storage will also be available for registered Nikon owners and SnapBridge users on Nikon Image Space, Nikon’s free image storing service. Additionally, built-in Wi-Fi3 and NFC remain available to help facilitate easy connection and sharing.

Through Nikon SnapBridge, users can also operate their cameras remotely using the app, automatically synchronize time and location information to any image utilizing the camera’s constant connection to a compatible smart device, as well as embed information on any image, including copyright or photographers’ names. Lastly, firmware updates have never been easier, as Nikon will send registered users firmware information via the new SnapBridge application, directly to their smart device.

4K Video Capability

The DL series will be among Nikon’s first compact offerings to support 4K UHD video capability [3840x2160] at 30p, affording users the ability to capture incredibly beautiful video with remarkable detail, all with a compact camera. Multimedia photographers will have free reign over their creative vision with the ability to utilize PSAM selectable exposure modes while recording, alongside popular movie features like HDMI output to an external recorder, slow motion to 1200 fps and the ability to grab stills from video. Other creative video functions available include: Full HD movie, HD movie, Motion Snapshot, Slow motion, 4-second movie, Time-lapse movie, Superlapse movie and Jump cut.

DL24-85: The Premium Compact Camera Ready for Anything

Great for travel, portraits and general photography, the DL24-85 offers pocket-sized imaging power with a fast and versatile 24-85mm focal range. Compatible with 40.5mm threaded filters, the newly designed NIKKOR lens (11 elements in 9 groups) features a 3.6x zoom range (7x with Dynamic Fine Zoom4) and a wide f/1.8-2.8 aperture, empowering users to capture a wide variety of subjects with incredible detail and natural bokeh, even in low-light. The 24-85mm offering also features Dual Detect Optical VR, AF bracketing and a tilting Touch OLED display to make composing from creative angles easier than ever.

Exclusive to this DL model is a new Super Macro Mode (1:1) that helps capture even small subjects in life-size detail. Setting manual zoom on the camera to super macro position allows the user close-up shooting at a 35mm equivalent magnification, providing amazing detail whether shooting flowers in bloom or a wandering ladybug. Macro photographers can utilize a variety of camera functions within the mode, including focus bracketing, manual priority AF (M/A) mode and peaking indication, to truly customize the look and feel of every image.

DL18-50: A Premium Pocket Camera That Can Capture It All

For landscape and architecture shooters looking for compact, ultra-wide angle DL option, the DL18-50 provides a solution that fits easily into any photographer’s pocket. Starting at a wide 18mm and expanding to 50mm (2.8x zoom, 5.5x with Dynamic Fine Zoom) the camera sports a powerful NIKKOR lens with a wide f/1.8-2.8 aperture that makes it easier than ever to produce natural bokeh in any image, while capturing tack-sharp stills and video. This lens is compatible with 46mm filters and features Nikon’s Nano Crystal Coat to help reduce ghosting and flare.

Those who choose the wide-angle DL premium compact can also take advantage of perspective controls to help compensate for image distortion, particularly for shooting tall objects from the ground like landmarks and skyscrapers. Tailored for architecture shooters, this feature helps to capture the correct perspective with ease.

For use with the DL24-85 and DL18-50, a newly designed optional DF-E1 electronic viewfinder (EVF) will be available for discerning photographers who desire for a traditional eye-level viewfinder to frame their photos. The compact DF-E1 features a 2,359k-dot resolution with eye sensor, alongside a tilting mechanism, diopter adjustment and anti-reflection coating, helping provide further clarity and versatility for DL shooters.

DL24-500: Get Close and Connect

The DL24-500 offers the longest zoom capability of any DL premium compact, reaching an incredible 500mm focal length and 21x optical zoom (42x with Dynamic Fine Zoom). Combining Nikon’s new 1-inch sensor with this impressive super-zoom NIKKOR lens, the DL24-500 is an ideal choice for users eager to photograph and share anything from concerts to wildlife. Featuring an f/2.8-5.6 aperture, this lens (compatible with 55mm filters) integrates the newest NIKKOR technologies to help render amazing images and background blur, even from afar.

The DL24-500 also features Dual Detect Optical VR, particularly useful when shooting at extremely long focal lengths or without a tripod, a built-in electronic viewfinder (EVF) with 2,359k-dot OLED display and an eye-sensor and a Vari-angle 1,037k-dot OLED screen.

SanDisk Launches New Extreme PRO MicroSDXC UHS-II Memory Card

While the average user might be fine using lower-classed microSD cards, there are some who might demand better performance and might go for Class 10. However these days, devices like cameras have been designed to support even faster microSD card classes like UHS, and if you are a professional in need of that level of performance, SanDisk has you covered.

The company has recently announced their latest Extreme PRO microSDXC UHS-II memory card. For those unfamiliar, UHS-II is currently the fastest/top-of-the-line that you can go, which also means that these cards do not come cheap. Professionals who might need blazing fast read/write speeds might appreciate them.

The SanDisk Extreme PRO microSDXC UHS-II Card delivers transfer speeds of up to 275MB/s so you can get to your videos faster than ever before. Use the included USB 3.0 reader for convenient transfers and take the bottleneck out of enjoying even your most massive 4K UHD video files. Finally your memory card can keep up with you and your lifestyle! From a leader in flash memory storage, this card is ideal for offloading 4K UHD video from your action camera, drone, high-performance camera or smartphone.

SanDisk products are constructed to the highest standards and rigorously tested. You can be confident in the outstanding quality, performance and reliability of every SanDisk product.

UHS-II cards aren’t quite as affordable to the average consumer yet. The 64GB Extreme PRO is priced at $179.99, while the 128GB model is going for nearly double that price at $299.99. Both microSD cards are also expected to be available worldwide in Q2 2016.

SanDisk Unveils Mobile Flash Drive For USB Type-C Devices

SanDisk announced at Mobile World Congress a new USB flash drive called the Ultra USB Type-C Flash Drive that uses the new tiny and reversible USB-C connector. USB Type-C is set to become the new standard for USB devices in the future. It’s the new standard that we’ll be seeing on every type device; it is able to transfer power, data, sound, video, it’s reversible and it is fast!

The company has recently announced a new mobile flash drive that has been designed for USB-C devices specifically. As you can see in the photo above, this flash drive is pretty standard in terms of its design and function, but it does come with a USB-C connector meaning that if you have a laptop like Apple's new MacBook, Google's Chromebook Pixel 2 and Dell's XPS 12, XPS 13, XPS 15 and Latitude 7000 series laptops, you will be able to connect the flash drive to it without needing an adapter.

Of course we expect that further down the line, USB-C devices and accessories will be more widely-available, but in the meantime this USB-C flash drive might tide early adopters over until more options are out there. In terms of storage, it will be available in 16, 32, 64, and 128GB storage sizes. Users will get USB 3.1 performance with read speeds of up to 130MB/s for the 16GB flash drive and up to 150MB/s for the 32GB to 128GB drives.

They aren’t particularly expensive either with the 16GB priced at $19.99, the 32GB at $29.99, the 64GB at $49.99, and the 128GB at $79.99. The SanDisk Ultra USB Type-C Flash Drive will come with a five-year warranty, and as of today, you can buy one from Amazon, and other leading retailers.

Review: Peak Design CaptureLENS Lens Clip Kit Changing System

Review Peak Design CaptureLENS Lens Clip Kit

Overview : Changing lenses is one of the most common workflows in photography. It’s also one of the most frustrating. Enter CaptureLENS®. Based on our flagship Capture Camera Clip, CaptureLENS lets you change lenses rapidly, with just one hand, and holds your unused lens rigidly and securely. Wear CaptureLENS on any backpack strap, belt or bag, keeping your spare lens quickly accessible and freeing up the inside of your bag for other gear. Choose from Canon EF, Nikon F or Sony E/FE mounts.

Features :
  • It works with Canon (EF mount), Nikon (F mount) and Sony (E and FE mount) lenses.
  • CaptureLENS includes a standard Capture clip (nylon backplate) plus a Lens Kit adapter plate. It does not include a plate for camera bodies.
  • Lens Kit includes just the adapter plate. It's for people who already own (or plan to own) a Capture clip. Lens Kit is compatible with all versions of Capture.

Quality/Usability : If you haven't heard about Peak Design by now, you've probably been sleeping under a rock. Peak Design started off on Kickstarter and has made a huge name for themselves in the camera accessories industry. One of their latest products is the CaptureLENS/Lens Kit adapter. It is a double-sided rotating mount for quickly storing and switching out your lenses while on the move.

The CaptureLENS includes the Lens Kit, Capture Clip, a quick setup guide, PD sticker, two anchor links, two bayonet caps, microfiber pouch and inspection tag. If you already own a Capture Clip, you can purchase the Lens Kit adapter only. Do remember that if you use the Capture Clip for your camera already, if buying the adapter only, it will now occupy the clip and no where for your camera or vice versa.

Best bet is to purchase the CaptureLENS, this way you have a dedicated Capture Clip specifically for the lens adapter.

The Capture Clip that is included is the standard version. No camera plate is included but you can purchase it separately if you wanted to. You can read our review on the CapturePRO Clip which is pretty much the same. Capture is made of aluminum and nylon where as the PRO version is all aluminum and has a 1/4-20 thread on the back plate.

The two bayonet caps is used to cover the lens adapter if it is not being used to prevent any elements from entering. If you don't use it, it is fine too. Its personal preference.

The Lens Kit is a double-sided mount that can hold two lenses from either Canon’s EF Mount, Nikon’s F Mount, or Sony’s E and FE Mounts. The mount is the same setup found on your camera body.

A red button releases the lens but in order to release the lens, you will need to press the button in and twist the lens off. It will be hard to have the lens accidentally come off as it requires pressing of the button and twisting action of the lens. You can remove attach a lens and remove it easily with one hand. But to be safe, always use both hands when possible.

Depending on which version you purchase there will be an icon that helps let you know where to line up the lens. Since I have a Canon version, there is a white square and red dot. With Nikon and Sony mounts, there is a red triangle.

It is easiest to use both mounts so that when you remove one lens from the camera, it can be attached to the Lens Kit and then you can process to unhook the second lens from the adapter and onto your camera body.

The Lens Kit can be inserted into the Capture Clip in any direction. The Lens Kit is also able to rotate and lock in four different positions, in increments of 90°. The Lens Kit can not rotate easily unless it has been engaged. To rotate the lens, simply pull the entire Lens Kit slightly away from your body and turn it in any direction to the desired position.

The CaptureLENS can be worn on your belt, attached to a backpack or shoulder bag like the Everyday Messenger Bag. If you're using two lenses with one of them being on the camera body, it's best if the lens not being used is at the bottom. This way, when you need to swap lenses, you would take the lens that is on the camera and place it into the empty slot of the Lens Kit. Once that is locked into place, pull out and rotate so that the bottom lens is now on top and easy for you to remove.

You can also have the lenses facing sideways but the only issue with this is that it now takes up more width wise and has a higher risk of being bumped into.

If you don't want to use the adapter with a Capture Clip whether it be to your belt or the strap of a bag, it's OK. The plate mount allows you to attach Peak Design's anchor link quick connectors so that you can easily attach it to a Leash or Slide sling strap. In the picture above, I used the SlideLITE sling strap.

Conclusion : Overall, the Peak Design CaptureLENS Lens Clip Kit Changing System is an amazingly quick and simple way to swap out lenses while on the move. It works perfectly with Peak Design products whether it's with the Capture Clip or sling straps. No more having to dig through your camera bag or carrying additional luggage with you.

I've used the CaptureLENS with a Canon EF 24-70 f2.8L II and Canon EF 11-24mm f4L. It held both lenses fine and it was a little scary especially with the 11-24mm lens that retails for $3,000. But once it was locked in place, it didn't budge. It took a little bit to get use to it but once I got the hange of it, swapping lenses was very easy.

For all you Micro 4/3 camera owners, you're currently left out as it is not supported by the CaptureLENS.

We happened to stumble upon this product. The VisionTek USB 3.0 Pocket SSD allows you to store and transfer your files between any USB 3.0 devices easily. With 128GB ($84.99), 256GB ($139.99) and 512GB ($249.99) of storage, you have plenty of space for movies, music, photos, presentations and backups.

With its USB 3.0 interface, the VisionTek Pocket SSD can transfer files up to 20 times faster than typical USB 2.0 flash drives (USB 2.0. Read/Write speed will be lower and device compatibility varies). Everyone is busy and the last thing they want to do is wait for a file to copy. With a multi-chip design utilizing high endurance MLC NAND, the VisionTek USB 3.0 Pocket SSD is ultra-fast.

The durable aircraft grade aluminium enclosure means you don't have to worry about it breaking when you toss it in your bag. The VisionTek USB 3.0 Pocket SSD comes formatted as NTFS but supports other formats as well.

360 images can then be uploaded to Foldio360 Online, which generates shareable links and embeddable codes for your image library. Foldio360 Online integrates seamlessly with existing websites using simple widgets that works on most professional websites including Shopify, Squarespace, and Wordpress. Or users can just link directly from their blog, online store, or Instagram to Foldio360 Online to show off their beautiful 360 images.

The Foldio360 is developed by OrangeMonkie, a hardware team with members in Los Angeles and Seoul. OrangeMonkie previously launched the popular Foldio2 project, receiving over $500,000 in pre­orders for the mini photo studio. This is the company’s third product under the Foldio brand name after having successfully delivered on their previous Kickstarter projects.
