The Sigma cameras have been defined by the spectacular images they can produce, and the awful design choices that make capturing those images incredibly difficult. The new Sigma Quattro cameras aim to fix those design quirks. With a run of brilliant products from Sigma this year, will the Quattro keep the streak alive?
The Camera Store hosted a private Nikon D810 Launch Party with a small group of our current Nikon clients. The event was a blast and we hope to have more events like these in the future!
The book is what it says it is, avoiding the glut of self-help that plagues the “how-to” market. The Filmmaker’s Handbook is how to how-to. It is intelligently written throughout, and the examples and selections that Pincus and Ascher make are subtly and gracefully chosen; there is brilliance in using a sublime still of Anna Karina in Jean Luc Godard’s Vivre sa Vie to expound on the possible virtue lens flare, and I was pleasantly surprised to see a philosophically dense topic like persistence of vision addressed at all, not to mention so deftly.
The Pentax 645Z is the most sophisticated medium format camera everreleased. With a new 51 megapixel sensor, live view, and modern DSLR
functionality, it’s an incredibly versatile tool. It’s also the first
medium format camera ever to shoot video! The TCSTV crew went out to
test the stills, and we met up with our friends at Deluxe Design Group
to shoot a movie trailer and test the video capabilities! Is this the
camera that will restore the popularity of medium format digital?

“Lately, I read Stephen Shore’s “The Nature of Photographs” and I foundit hypnotic. I think everyone interested in photography should read it.
Shore is a master educator on the subject of photography, and his
insights on focus and the frame have so much more to do with
mindfulness, and the transmutation of consciousness. I shouldn’t say too
much and blow the magic of it.”
