Lensbaby Velvet 85

Lensbaby's new Velvet 85 lens is now available for preorder. Manufactured in Canon EF, Fuji X, Micro Four Thirds, Nikon F, Pentax K, Samsung NX, Sony A and Sony E mounts; the Lensbaby Velvet 85 delivers a velvety, glowing, ethereal look at brighter apertures, and beautifully sharp but subtly unique, film-like images as you stop down. Building on the strengths of the existing Velvet 56 lens, the Velvet 85 is said to combine "lustrous skin tones with the added compression and sublime bokeh of high-quality 85mm portrait lenses." This manual-focus lens has a minimum focus distance of 9.5 inches, enabling close-up photography. The optical formula comprises 4 elements in 3 groups and a 12-bladed diaphragm. The maximum aperture is f/1.8 and the lens takes 67mm filters. The Lensbaby Velvet 85 is priced at $499.95 and will begin shipping on 11th July.

LucidCam Launches

Lucid VR today officially announced the availability of their easy-to-use, pocket-size 3D 180° VR camera, the LucidCam with a preview sale launch campaign starting June 26th. Exceeding the original specifications of the LucidCam crowdfunding campaign, the engineers at Lucid VR enhanced it and developed a robust 4K 3D 180° VR camera with on-the-go VR content processing of pictures and videos, plus livestreaming capabilities. With the addition of Lucid’s viewing clip or phone case, you can create and view your own 3D 180° VR anywhere with a click of a button. “It’s been an incredible journey to bring this product to life while the industry was chasing 360° VR. 180° VR is much more appealing for the masses, as its simplicity and user experience allows more users to easily capture VR content. With Google’s announcement one of the major players in VR is realizing the benefits of 180° VR video for consumers,” said Jin. “LucidCam creates images and videos which let you for the first time see the world through someone else’s eyes as if you were really there. I want everyone to have such incredible superpowers.” Lucid kicks off the one-month preview sale campaign starting Monday, June 26th, where the camera will be discounted 15 percent off the retail price and delivered August 9.

Tamron 18-400mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD

The Tamron 18-400mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD is the World's first 22.2x all-in-one zoom lens for APS-C DSLR cameras. Weighing in at 705 grams, the 18-400mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD is remarkably compact and lightweight for a lens covering such an extremely wide zoom range. The focal length of 400mm at the telephoto end enables photographers to bring distant subjects closer as well as the perspective-flattening effects that only extreme telephoto settings can achieve. The optical construction of the lens comprises 16 lens elements in 11 groups. The use of specialised glass elements such as LD (Low Dispersion) and aspherical lens elements effectively minimises chromatic aberrations and geometric distortion. The AF drive system uses Tamron’s exclusive HLD (High/Low torque modulated Drive) motor. The power-saving HLD motor produces outstanding driving torque, and adjusts motor rotation from low to high speed to enable accurate and quiet focusing. The lens is equipped with Tamron’s original VC (Vibration Compensation) system, which effectively curbs camera shake under low-light conditions. The electromagnetic diaphragm system, which enables superior aperture control, will be incorporated into both the Canon and Nikon vrsions of the lens. The Tamron 18-400mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD will be available from July, at a suggested retail price of £649.99/$649.00.
