DNP DS620A Dye-Sublimation Photo Printer

DNP today introduced its new flagship DS620A dye-sublimation photo printer for the event photography and photo retail markets. As the latest addition to the company’s DS Series printers, the DS620A is billed as the world’s most compact professional-grade photo printer, capable of outputting up to 400 prints per hour. At 10.8-inches wide by 14.4-inches deep by 6.7-inches high, the DS620A is 14 percent lighter than its predecessor. The printer’s design also features improved aesthetics with a new white color scheme and rounded corners. The DS620A is capable of producing 2”x6”(2-up) photo strips, 2”x6”(4-up) photo strips, 3.5"x5”(2x), 4”x6”, 4”x6”(2x), 5”x7”, and 6”x8” prints as well as new 5”x5” and 6”x6” square prints in a newly improved gloss or matte finish. A new standby mode lowers costs and increases profitability by making the most efficient use of energy (<0.5W). The printer also provides advanced status information from the driver, enabling users at any time to check remaining media, media format, printer status, printer life counter, color control data, firmware version and serial number.

Version 1.2, which was pre-announced two weeks ago, incorporates a variety of movie mode refinements, several interface upgrades and expanded connectivity options.

PC tethering via USB is now a reality for those using Samsung Remote Studio software and developers can take advantage of Samsung’s Software Development Kit for Windows PC, meaning they have remote access and control software for the Samsung NX1.

All Sports Illustrated Photographers Made Redundant

According  the National Press Photographers Association, Sports Illustrated has made all of its remaining staff photographers redundant. In speaking with the News Photographer Magazine, SI director of photography Brad Smith blamed the move on the current "economic circumstances," adding that the lay-offs were part of a company-wide restructuring effort. Effective March 2015, the staff cuts do not necessarily mean that the six photographers - seasoned veterans including Robert Beck, Simon Bruty, Bill Frakes, David E. Klutho, John W. McDonoughand Al Tielemans - will no longer be able to work for the magazine. "I hope that they may continue to [contribute to the success of the magazine] under slightly different circumstances," Smith told the NPPA.

Tamron SP 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD Pricing Announced

Tamron has announced pricing and availability for the Tamron SP 15-30mm F/2.8 Di VC USD wide zoom. Featuring an optical construction comprising 18 elements in 13 groups including an XGM (eXpanded Glass Molded Aspherical) element placed at the front group and several LD (Low Dispersion) glass elements used throughout the optical system, the Tamron SP 15-30mm F/2.8 Di VC USD is billed as the world's first full-frame f/2.8 ultra-wide-angle zoom lens with image stabilisation. Tamron's acclaimed BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) coating is further refined to render uniformity in transmissivity across the critical bandwidths. Coupled with the eBAND coating, ghosting and flare typically observed on ultra-wideangle lenses are efficiently eliminated, resulting in crisper and crystal-clear images, the company claims. The lens will go on sale on 30th January, priced at $1199.
