Following on the heels of Leica’s M monochrome digital stills camera, RED have surprised us with the announcement of a black and white version of their flagship Epic cinema camera – RED Epic-M Monochrome. By removing the need to de-bayer the sensor data Red have managed to achieve a much higher quality black and white image than a standard Epic.
Rokinon has announced it will be presenting a perspective control 24mm F3.5 tilt-and-shift lens at Photokina 2012. The Samyang T-S 24mm 1:3.5 ED AS UMC is a wide-angle, full-frame lens that offers tilt and shift movements, allowing control of subject geometry and depth of field. It offers up to 12mm of shift and 8.5° of tilt; the shift movement can be rotated +/- 90° relative to the lens mount, and the tilt movement 90° relative to the shift axis, allowing lots of flexibility over adjustments. The lens will be available in Canon EF, Nikon F, Pentax K and Sony Alpha mounts.
Carl Zeiss has announced the Apo Sonnar T* 2/135 telephoto lens, which it will be showing at the Photokina trade show in Cologne later this month. This premium manual focus optic uses a floating focus system to maintain high image quality at all distances down to 0.8m. It uses anomalous partial dispersion glass elements to minimize chromatic aberrations, resulting in an apochromatic design. This lens will be available for Canon and Nikon DSLRs.
