Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX300

Introducing the Cyber-Shot DSC-HX300
At the end of February 2013, Sony introduced a camera that can be safely described with the words “all at once”. This Cyber-Shot DSC-HX300 is a compact camera with 50x optical zoom. Today this handsome man came to our editorial office. He is waiting for a large field test in the format of “week with an expert.” For seven days I will describe my shooting experience with the HX300 and its functions, test the camera in different conditions and show the results of real shooting.

But we’ll start by exploring the Cyber-Shot DSC-HX300. The main advantage of this model is a 50x zoom lens. Its range of equivalent focal lengths is simply amazing: from 24 to 1200 mm at aperture f / 2.8-6.3. I recall how in ancient times I had a 1000 mm lens for a DSLR. At f / 10 aperture, it weighed 2.5 kg and did not fit into a standard photo backpack. For comparison, the Cyber-Shot DSC-HX300 weighs only 630 grams with the battery. Continue reading

Digital movie cameras: introduction. What cameras were filmed and filmed a movie?

“Any camera in the hands of an amateur is amateur, any camera in the hands of a professional is professional.” This common phrase, popular among filmmakers, is largely true, because a person shoots a movie, not a camera.

After choosing the artistic solution to the film, its style, the director of photography selects the desired technological solution for the implementation of the creative tasks of the director. An interesting, high-quality film image, in addition to the filming process itself, is based on three main parameters: camera selection, optics selection and image processing at the stage of color correction and post-production. All these components are closely related to each other and inextricably affect how the film will end up. Today we’ll talk about choosing a camera to create a movie. Continue reading

Canon The history of development.

The company traces its history from its foundation in 1939. optical laboratory, which occupied one room on the 3rd floor of the Takikawa building in Tokyo. The laboratory was opened jointly by two young people: Goro Yoshida, and his son-in-law Saburo Utida. Her task was to produce high-class cameras, no worse than German models, which at that time were the most advanced. They began to study the mechanisms of existing cameras. Takeshi Mitarai sponsored these studies with a close friend of Utida, who later became president of the company.

The company was named after the goddess of mercy Canon (better known as Guanyin of the Chinese pantheon, she is also the bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara).

In 1934, they managed to create the first Japanese 35 mm camera with a Leica shutter-type shutter. Being a believer, Yoshida named the camera “Kwanon” in honor of the Buddhist goddess of mercy. The June issue of Asahi Camera magazine featured an announcement on Kwanon cameras. Of the ten cameras produced, not one hit the market. Continue reading
