Metabones Speed Booster ULTRA 0.71x M43

Metabones and Caldwell Photographic have launched a new Speed Booster ULTRA series of "focal lens reducing" adapters designed for Micro Four Thirds cameras. Like the original Metabones Speed Booster announced in January 2013, the Speed Booster ULTRA m43 has a magnification of 0.71x, and so it effectively reduces the crop factor of mirrorless Micro Four Thirds mount cameras from 2.0x to 1.4x, and is almost perfectly corrected for use with all 35mm full-frame SLR lenses. The Speed Booster ULTRA for Micro Four Thirds is available for $649 (Canon EF mount) and $479  (Nikon F mount) plus shipping and applicable taxes and duties).

Samsung S5K3P3 Mobile Image Sensor

Samsung have announced the industry’s first 1μm-pixel-based 16 megapixel CMOS sensor designed for use in mobile devices. The S5K3P3 imager takes advantage of Samsung’s ISOCELL technology to deliver image quality that is on a par with sensors featuring slightly larger, 1.2μm photosites. The new sensor reduces the camera module’s overall height by 20 percent, offering designers the ability to develop thinner-than-ever smartphones and tablets. Samsung’s new S5K3P3 image sensor is available today to original equipment manufacturers.

Colour Clipping Issue Resolved in Latest Release of Google Chrome

Google Chrome version 43.02357, which came out in May, proved to be a nightmare for photography enthusiasts. Most - albeit not all - photos viewed in this version of the popular Web browser suffered from a serious colour burning/clipping issue with abrupt tonal transitions in the shadows. (The more technically inclined among you might like to check out this discussion thread on the Chromium Project website.) Needless to say, this was a potentially huge problem for any photographer displaying and selling their work online. Version 44.0.2403 - now available on all platforms - comes with a fix and appears to display all images properly, so if you happen to have stopped using Chrome for this particular reason, you may want to consider giving it another chance.

Outdoor Photographer of the Year 2015

Outdoor Photography magazine has announced that its competition to find the next Outdoor Photographer of the Year is now open. Open to amateur and professional photographers from around the world, the competition covers all genres of outdoor photography – from landscape and adventure to wildlife and the underwater world – and this year the organisers have added a brand new category devoted to seeking out images that capture the spirit of travel. The fee to enter each of the eight adult categories is £8. There is also a free-to-enter category for photographers aged 18 or under. The magazine has once again teamed up with outdoor equipment experts Fjällräven to offer a unique prize: the overall winner will be off to the Arctic on the Fjällräven Polar dog sled expedition in spring 2016. All the winning images will be exhibited at the Telegraph Outdoor Adventure & Travel Show at ExCel, London (11-14 February 2016), and the overall winner will be announced live at the show on the Outdoor Photography PhotoBox stage on Saturday 13 February 2016. The closing date for entries is 2 November 2015.

Canon ME20F-SH

Canon, today introduced their first multi-purpose camera, the new ME20F-SH, which delivers an ISO sensitivity of over 4,000,000. This multi-purpose camera employs an enhanced version of the 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor for Full HD video use that was originally developed by Canon in 2013. It has a pixel pitch of 19μm, and each of its sensor photosites has a surface area of 361 μm2, which is much higher than the corresponding values of the Canon EOS-1D X (6.94 μm and 48.16 μm2, respectively). Furthermore, similar to Canon’s Cinema EOS System of professional digital cinematography cameras, the ME20F-SH includes Canon Log and Wide DR. The camera employs the same EF mount (Cinema Lock type) as Canon’s SLR cameras and Cinema EOS System-series of professional digital cameras, allowing users to make use of the company's extensive lineup of interchangeable lenses. The Canon ME20F-SH is expected to be available in December 2015 at a suggested retail price of $30,000.
