20th May 2015, Singapore – UV Printing is largely unknown or unheard of in Singapore. Originated from Japan, this latest printing technology is rewriting the possibilities of what you can print and what you can print on. In this sense, this process extends the possibilities beyond just photography. We will talk about that another day.

As for now, just imagine you can print on anything – expanding customization to the limits of today, UV Printing offers you more than just printing what you wanted, you can literally print on any object* or surfaces! One very common problem that most photographers (or a Marketing person) faces today is how to be different? Apart from the usual offerings that photographers can propose to their clients from the typical mugs, photo albums or the bored-to-death printed coasters, UV Printing is the answer.

The good thing about UV printing is, you can printing irregular shape objects and on most material surfaces. And the printing will last longer than you can imagine. Offering glossy ink or matte ink, the end product feels expensive and very well thought out. And that’s not all, the printing is like regular printing that offers an array of colors too!

Even printing on a small object like the thumbdrive below (See the 10 cents coin as a comparison), UV Printing is super versatile and the options are endless! Wedding Couples can now choose more sensible table gifts for their guests, Corporate Clients can now choose over a few thousand items to give away rather than the usual office stationaries and in whichever format or whatever purpose, UV Printing seems like the next big thing that will catch on fast with the local and regional (SEA) markets.

So what exactly is UV printing and why it is so versatile? UV coatings, have lots of advantages over regular printing. One most distinctive property of UV Printing is, it give an insane level of high gloss levels, long lasting protective qualities and feel-good-to-the-hands touch. UV Printing is capable of special effects, and can be used as a form of high-end coating and that makes UV Printing almost invincible!

OSJ2

UV printing uses special formulated inks and after printing, the printed area(s) are exposed to ultra-violet (UV) radiation, which helps to harden the ink instantly. At situations where the object must do without the coating, the UV inks (still) cure instantly, making it really easy to print on non-absorbent materials like plastic films or metal papers.

So looking at what UV Printing can do, we are off to change the landscape of Photography novelties (& corporate gifts) in Singapore. At the moment, we know of ONE Printing company that does UV Printing, they are D’ Print Merchant.

The HUAWEI P8 Smartphone – A Photographer’s Dream

The HUAWEI P8 Smartphone – A Photographer’s Dream

IMG_8797

16th May 2015, Singapore – I was selected to participate in the Huawei P8 Smartphone contest and I had been issued the P8. So for the next 10 days, I will be putting the P8 through its paces especially the camera functions. Since I got selected partially because of my job as a commercial photographer, the P8 promises lots of fun – especially with its low light capability and high quality photo. So I will be back with more updates on that part.

IMG_8798

I was impressed with packaging as it does not feel”China-Made” but instead, it was closer to unboxing a smartphone from “One-of-the-European” maker. That apart, I must say that the packaging was well thought out and unboxing it was a surprise.

620x77banner(1)

IMG_8802

The Huawei P8 feels really good on my hand and the phone build is solid and seems like it can take some really serious abuse. And using the P8 as a camera, I guess the designer would have thoughtfully incorporated the possible outdoor elements that a photographer will be braving against.

IMG_8803

Everything you need, a charger adaptor, a cable, earphones and the P8. Unlike smartphones from other brands, the P8 retail box seems like a good travelling organizer to bring along on trips. Next, will be to check out how good the phone is really is.

I will be back with more updates. Stay Tuned peeps.

Last chance to enter Getty Images SG50 photo competition‏
– Just two weeks to go to enter Getty Images and iStock by Getty Images competition to capture authentic and diverse moments of daily life in Singapore

Shipping in Singapore

Shipping in Singapore

15th May 2015, Singapore – There are just two weeks to go to enter Getty Images SG50 competition, which calls for entrants to #RePicture Singapore and capture the diversity of Singapore, family, friends, love, food, city and suburban life and more.  Launched in celebration of Singapore’s 50th anniversary of independence, the competition encourages local photographers to capture the real Singapore.

The contest runs until 31 May, 2015, and is open to semi-professional and amateur photographers, as well as creatives in Singapore. Judging criteria is focused on consistency with the theme, composition of the photograph, technical skills and authenticity. The winner receives  a fantastic GoPro Hero4 (approximate value of S$700), and has the chance  to join the Getty Images team as a contributing photographer, with access to and guidance from Getty Images’ global team of art directors and editors.

OSJ1

Professional commercial photographer and Getty Images freelance photographer Nicky Loh is one of the judges for the SG50 competition and has provided the following top tips on how to take your photography to the next level:

1.     Always shoot something that you feel passionate about. Think hard about what your images are communicating; powerful photography always communicates a message.

2.     I love the light from 7am-8am and 5pm-7pm in Singapore. That’s when I usually get nice shots – try shooting around that time too. 

620x77banner(1)

3.     Open your senses to the mundane things and see the beauty in them. Invest a whole day walking around Singapore and surprise yourself with your findings.

4.     Don’t just shoot straight on! Challenge your perspective and point of view – shoot around your subject, not just from head height and middle distance. Get up close, get down on the ground, and get up high.

5.     Don’t be cliché and copy what’s out there already. Have an opinion of your own and show it in your photographs. Have we seen that approach before? Is it an obvious treatment? Change it up.

OSJ2

Getty Images invites participants to share their imagery using #repicture – images that reflect the nation’s progress since 1965; Singapore’s pioneering spirit; and real-life with people of all backgrounds, gender, and age.

Travel Light and Take Great Selfies with New High Performance, High-Zoom Compact Cameras from Sony!

 

DSC-WX500 Black (2)

Photo: The SONY WX500 with class-leading 30x Zoom

* Cyber-shot™ HX90V and Cyber-shot™ WX500 offer ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* lens with 30x zoom; 18.2 effective megapixels Exmor R™ sensor; BIONZ X™ processor; Full HD video; Fast Intelligent AF; Optical SteadyShot® with 5-axis stabilisation
1 and 180-degree tilt LCD for perfect framing of selfies

* Cyber-shot™ HX90V features OLED Tru-Finder™ and Control Ring for professional style control and results 

07th May 2015, Singapore – Carry less, shoot more: two new travel and selfie-friendly cameras from Sony put fabulous holiday photo opportunities in closer reach this summer. The world’s most compact cameras in their class2, the Cyber-shot™ DSC-HX90V and DSC-WX500, are big on sheer picture quality plus plenty of easy-to-use pro-style functions.

Despite sharing a raft of technologies that deliver amazing picture quality, the two cameras offer distinct choices for photographers looking for a compact high-zoom camera. Both are built around extremely high quality optics with a ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* 30x zoom lens and benefit from the power of an Exmor RTM CMOS sensor with 18.2 megapixels and BIONZ X™ processor. Separately, for the photographers who prefer to frame their shots more traditionally, the HX90V features a pop-up OLED Tru-Finder™ and a Control Ring that can be assigned to functions such as manual focusing or step zoom. The feeling of control when using the HX90V is further enhanced by a new ergonomic grip that guarantees comfortable handling in any situation.

For photographers who prefer to add perfectly-framed selfies to their repertoire, both the HX90V and WX500 have a 180-degree tilt LCD screen that allows easy retouching with Beauty Effect and “My Best Portrait” on PlayMemories Camera AppsTM, so you can see exactly how you will appear in your shots.

Despite their pocket-sized dimensions, both the HX90V and WX500 benefit from 5-axis image stabilisation1 which keeps pictures blur-free even when exploring the outer limits of the camera’s zoom range whilst shooting movies.

ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* Lens with 30x Optical Zoom / 60x Clear Image Zoom
Packing a huge 30x optical zoom range into the tiny camera bodies, the high-quality ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* lens pulls friends and family, wildlife and distant scenes closer. The advanced design ensures impressively sharp, low-distortion images, even at high-zoom settings where budget optics struggle to main clarity and definition. Want to go larger still? Clear Image Zoom boosts magnification to a gargantuan 60x with Optical SteadyShot™ and 5-axis image stabilisation1, keeping handheld camera wobbles in check for crisper handheld Full HD videos.

Exmor RTM CMOS Sensor with 18.2 Effective Megapixels and BIONZ X™ Processor
The subtlest details in any scene – even moonlit beaches and café interiors – are captured effortlessly by the back-illuminated Exmor R™ CMOS image sensor with 18.2 effective megapixels. Sony’s advanced BIONZ X™ image processor ensures stills and Full HD movies with incredible colours, richness, and realism.

OLED Tru-Finder™ Precision Electronic Viewfinder
Available only on the HX90V, framing shots on sunny days is a pleasure with the OLED Tru-Finder™ that pops up as and when needed. Images are bright, crisp and clear, with high contrast and vivid colours.

DSC-HX90V Lifestyle (6) (1)

High-resolution 180 degrees tilt LCD and Beauty Effects for Awesome Selfies
Top-notch selfies are a doddle with the 3.0-type LCD that tilts up to 180 degrees for comfortably-framed arms’ length portraits. The high-resolution (921k dots) monitor is also handy for composing and retouching shots with the camera’s built-in Photo Creativity and Beauty Effect functions.

Fast Intelligent Autofocus
The Fast Intelligent AF system on the new models has been inherited from Sony’s award-winning α7 series of cameras. An improved spatial object detection algorithm realises a more optimal and accurate lens drive to make autofocus even faster for capturing fleeting moments with ease.

Serious snappers will also appreciate extensive control modes, Memory Recall and a Control Ring that can be assigned to functions like manual focusing or step zoom.

Better-looking movies are assured by Full HD 60p/50p3 recording using the XAVC S4 format at 50Mbps. Rest assured that there’ll be no on-screen noise and artefacts, even when you are capturing fast-moving kids, pets or jet-skis. P/A/S/M modes give extra creative control over your video footage, while Intelligent Active Mode with 5-axis image stabilisation1 steadies image wobbles when you are following moving subjects.

There’s a built-in flash for low-light shooting, as well as Wi-Fi with NFC for One-touch wireless sharing of photos and movies on your phone or tablet. In addition, both the HX90V and WX500 is equipped with the high performance NP-BX1 battery that allows up to 400 photos to be taken on a single charge.

DSC-HX90V Lifestyle (4)

Cyber-shot™ HX90V with GPS
The Cyber-shot™ HX90V adds GPS that automatically tags your shots and clips with location information to enjoy on a map using PlayMemories Home.

PlayMemories Camera Apps™ including “My Best Portrait” for a Great Selfie Experience
Shooting possibilities for both cameras can be expanded at any time with PlayMemories Camera AppsTM. For the Cyber-shot™ DSC-HX90V and DSC-WX500, three popular Apps – My Best Portrait, Smart Remote Control and Sync to Smartphone are available. Further information on these compatible apps is available at playmemoriescameraapps.com.

LCJ-HWA Body Case
Available in black, brown, and light brown, the optional LCJ-HWA body case with lens jacket and shoulder strap features a quality leather-style finish to protect either camera while offering a sure, stable grip. The smart design allows easy access while you’re out and about – shoot, adjust LCD angle or connect the USB multi terminal without removing the camera from its case.

The new Cyber-shot™ HX90V and WX500 high-zoom compact travel cameras from Sony will be available in Singapore from June 2015 onwards at all Sony Stores, Sony Centres and selected Sony authorised dealers.

===============================

About Charlie Lim  
FMPA (UK), FCTPC, FWPPM, Hon SCPC, SOE Nominee 2009

Charlie is a man of varied talents and foresight.  He is professionally trained in Advertising and Commercial Photography.  Discipline and perseverance are the pillars of Charlie’s success.  Talent and his passion for art are the brick and mortar that build his vision to blur the lines between photography and fine art.

Through years of research, Charlie has developed a new art form that he calls “Oil-Painting” Photography.  Charlie’s images dwell on the boundaries of fine art and photography.

In his portraitures, Charlie employs a Baroque approach of dramatic play of light and shadow where he ‘paints’ his figures in the dark with a light source. The results resemble Rembrandt’s paintings.  On closer look, the term “Light” is double entendre; Charlie captures movements akin to Degas’. His moving figures embodied a sense of lightness with a hint of surrealistic whimsy.  His subjects glide effortlessly along the frames, exuding mystery and beauty.

“Oil-Painting” Photography has propelled Charlie to international fame. He is much sought after and frequently featured in various media.

Since year 2008, Charlie had media coverage in at least 7 countries namely, Australia, London, Philippines, India, Vietnam and Singapore. His works were also featured in Vietnam TV in May 2014 and invited to have another live telecast in early 2015.

His latest achievement has to be the selection by the World Wide Art Books, publisher of the International Masters of Photography Volume II, a juried annual, invite-only art photography publication presenting noteworthy photographers from all over the world.  Each volume of this series presents the work of 100 noteworthy photographers from the world, displaying a cross section of what is happening in photography

Pink Submissions #07 “Everyday Adventures” Editor’s Pick

==================================
Tokina 11-20-New
==================================

Pink Submissions #07 “Everyday Adventures” Editor’s Pick
Pink Feature

21st April 2015, Singapore – We have finally finished the selection for Pink Submission #07 “Everyday Adventures”! We apologize that this round took so long to conclude as we are mourning for the loss of our Nation’s Father, the Late Mr. Lee Kua Yew and out of respect, we had “stayed low” through that period. I am sure he is at a better place right now. He will be remembered dearly by all true blue Singaporeans and honored for generations to come.

OK, Back to the Submissions, this round #07 our theme was “Everyday Adventures” – and not an easy one to handle. Everyday everyone of us are faced with different challenges and it somehow made everyday an adventure – in our own ways. We had asked for the images to be submitted must depict a scene or an object or a person in the middle of an action/ motion that scream “adventures” and to made that more challenging, it must be something that we can all relate daily or easily. And we were quite surprised and in fact astonished by some of the entries as those images were “hit” right on!

This round, we received a total of 198 entries, including 31 rejected for various reasons. As expected, the standards of the entries had raised and we were quite happy with what we saw. Before we get to the Editor’s Picks (and winners), let’s hear from the Editor and our Sponsor Cathay Photo Store.

“This is not an easy theme to work on. Although we are all facing challenges everyday but that does not means that it can be easily translated into an image to express oneself. After looking at the submitted photos, I felt that the Ladies had done a really good job! Thank you Ladies!”
– AL, Editor.

“Excellent entries! Like what the Editor (AL) had said, this is not an easy theme. But you ladies managed to depict – everyday adventures – into images that left us in awe. Good Job Ladies and Keep up the good work!”
– Charmaine Toh, Cathay Photo Store.

Enjoy the entries!

Editor’s Picks #07 Pink Submission “Everyday Adventures”.
– Let’s see what or how the Pink Photographers define the theme “Everyday Adventures” and how they expressed the theme into images. I would like to invite you to look at the selected entries and try to understand (or figure out) why we picked these excellent images. Here we go.

1) Boat Ride – Photo by Doris Ang.
Doris Ang
In Singapore, our transport system is world-class while there are people at other parts of the world are struggling. Imagine you only form of transport is a boat and your backyard is a river. Commuting in such a situation is not the people’s choice but by default. Every day is a challenge every day is an adventure.

 

2) Heavy Traffic – Photo by Jolvin Zhang

Well, contrary to popular beliefs and hallucinations, driving may not be a blessing (really) in Singapore. Apart from the high costs of owning a vehicle, the regular driver has to deal with traffic jams almost on a daily basis. On top of that, the driver-in-the-jam has to keep calm & cool, be on high alert, look out for irregular behaviour and the stress level is not easily comprehend by non-drivers. On the road? It’s always an adventure.

 

3) Heavy Tropical Storm – Photo by Eileen Maki Val

In Singapore, it’s either the scorching sun or the heavy tropical storm. Taking reference from number 2 above, the storm just raised the “difficulty” factor if you are out on the road. And if you are out there and not driving, imagine having to take shelter and wait for the rain to stop. While most passing storms will only last a short while, what if you encounter one that refuse to stop? Sun or Soak, it’s a daily Adventure.
4) Peak Hour – Photo by Josephine Tang

It’s not about the breakdowns. It’s about having to find your way to the right platform and “winning” a space for you to stand on before you missed the train and waiting for the next few packed ones that you can never squeeze yourself in. To the daily commuters, this is a daily challenge and very ride is an adventure, wait, did I also mentioned about the weird people you will find on the train too?

 

5) Peak Hour II – Photo by Josephine Tang

Personally, I enjoy Bus rides more than Train rides. However, I will avoid both during peak hours at all costs. We have one of the most efficient transportation system in Singapore, but buses are still over-packed and sometimes takes ages to arrive. Taking a bus ride is like opening a Kinder’s Surprise, you never know what the next bus might be, might bring, it’s an adventure every time!

 

6) Peak Hour III – Photo by Judy (Hui Yi)

People everywhere. Waddling through crowds and avoiding a head-on collision with another person is something that we faced all day. It’s not that we have too many people rather I will put it as we have too little land. Sadly, that is something that we cannot do anything about it. I am sure all of you crossed at least 1 busy-packed junction daily, isn’t that a challenge? No? Then I am so very sure it’s an adventure. Now watch your front and not your phone.

7) Zebra Crossing in Vietnam – Photo by Magdalene Teo-Yong
Mag TY
Like what many travel websites had cheekily mentioned, if you had not tried crossing a street in Vietnam, you had not experienced Vietnam. True to a certain extent, some patience, some skills and some common sense is needed when attempting to cross a street in Vietnam. Lined by thousands and thousands of bikes and the occasional cars, it’s a very real challenge and an adventure of a lifetime! I’ve done it several times and you should too.

 

8) Going Home – Photo by Tan Hui Hui
Tan Hui Hui
Driving home, on a packed jammed road, with traces of the rain that had just passed, the evening sun soft glowing through the evening clouds. You are tired from working, still, you have to survive this to get home to a hot dinner waiting on the table. Anxiety & fatigue feeds on each other, you rubbed your eyes, after 30 mins you had only moved 3 metres.
And not forgetting to mention that you have to stay very alert as most accidents happened during peak hours. Adventure? Definitely.

9) My Bicycle & Me – Photo by Priscilla Huang
Priscilla Huang1
We rode together. Accompanying each other on every journey. Every hump, every pot hole, every junction, every walkway is not just an obstacle, it’s our adventure together. Everyday, pedaling through streets after streets, roads after roads, it’s a new experience & adventure every time we ride together. Wanna join me?

10) Travelling – Photo by Magdalene Teo-Yong
Mag TY1
I am very sure you will very much agree with me that every trip out of the country promises an adventure. There will a mix of expectations and unexpected adventures.
Like some had said, you can travel to a same destination for 100 times, it will be 100 different adventures. But of course, I will recommend visiting different countries lah being a Singaporean. That makes more sense for money. Every trip is an adventure, no doubt about it. (And if you fly everyday – our theme is “Everyday Adventures”)
11) On the Plane – Photo by Jolvin Zhang

12) Travel II – Photo by Priscilla Huang

As above (number 10), every trip is an adventure. Do you remember that thrill when you are looking out of the plane? And looking forward to land at another country with nothing to expect but a thousand possibilities? Looking for yet another trip? You are looking forward to more adventures. And I presume the authors of the above photos flies almost everyday. (Our theme is Everyday Adventures)

13) Working Under the Sun – Photo by Choy Wai Han
Choy Wai Han
We took a while to understand how Wai Han’s photo of a foreign work working and painting road lines under the hot sun can be related to “Everyday Adventures”. Maybe the best way to link this up to the theme will be to imagine this guy being sent to all parts o Singapore to work on different projects everyday. To this worker, everyday is an adventure! To be a new place everyday and seeing this country from many varying perspectives and from many lesser known places in Singapore. What do you think?

 14) Daily Commute – Photo by Susan Gwee
Susan Gwee
To the mother of these 2 little boys, it’s a daily challenge to be carrying them on her back to various destinations. But to the 2 little boys, every trip, every day is a new Adventure! For they do not know where they are exactly heading and what they may encounter on every journey. This is indeed Everyday Adventures!

 

15) Basking in the Cold – Photo by Trisha Lim
Trisha Lim
All he wanted was your attention, to appreciate the piece that he is playing and hopefully you will spare some cash so that he can buy food to fill his hunger and keep him warm. He plays for you regardless if you are going to spare some cash or not. To him, every day is an adventure for he does not know if he will have enough people to appreciate his music and pay him enough to keep him alive. If living on the edge like this is not an adventure, then what is?

 

16) Overcoming Yourself – Photo by Soh Chui Lian
Soh Chui Lian
This photo of a lady trying to scour a wall may not be directly linked to the theme (everyday adventures) unless this lady climbs wall everyday. However, looking from another angle, it is about overcoming yourself on a daily basis. That is where the adventures begin. Wouldn’t you agree?

17) Keeping Our Marine Life Alive – Photo by Hanes Mrd
Hanes Mrd
What better adventures will be than to be the hero who save the day? Our marine life are thriving however there are many factors that are destructive to the marine ecosystem. Everyone should do their part in keeping our marine life healthy, and it is an adventure to up it going. Go figure.

18) The Daring Photographer – Photo by Soh Chui Lian
Soh Chui Lian1
Photographers are known to go all out to get the shots that they desire. And sometimes doing dangerous stunts or even getting entangled with the law. Such are the daily adventures that most photographers goes through. You are here means likely you are a photographer too. I am 90% sure, so what’s your adventure?

19) The Path Ahead – Photo by Zhang Tian Tian
TianTian
Keep going is the word here. For the future and the path ahead of you lies many unexpected hurdles. It’s more than just an adventure. To live and move ahead is living out an adventure everyday. Facing everything that is ahead, that is adventure. And on a daily basis if I must add.

20) Street Food In Thailand – Photo by Doris AngDoris Ang1
Travelling is an adventure, but food is the adventure within the adventure. This shot of a wok full of crabs and prawns may be appealing to some while just as many will be put off. This is after all street food. 2 schools of thoughts here, first, the hawkers has to prepare this everyday, the next will be the tourists that passed the stall everyday. So whose adventure does this belongs to? I will leave you here to your thoughts.

Renowned conceptual artist’s short film, “The Setting Up”, now available on NIKKOR.com

10th April 2015, SINGAPORE – NIKKOR.com (http://www.nikkor.com) is now updated with two new videos, “The Setting Up”, a video by a popular conceptual artist, and the video version of the interview with NIKKOR lens designers, “Volume 1: What do designers think, and how do they create lenses?”, as announced by Nikon Singapore Pte Ltd today.

A short film by Leandro Erlich, “The Setting Up” is now available on the branding site’s NIKKOR Motion Gallery, where new and innovative video imaging with NIKKOR lenses is regularly introduced. In NIKKOR Motion Gallery, top artists in a variety of genres come together to expand the world of video imaging with a completely new genre made possible only with the combination of NIKKOR lenses and Nikon cameras.

“THE SETTING UP” by Leandro Erlich1
Leandro Erlich is a conceptual artist born in Buenos Aires. His humorous and witty works upset common perceptions and ideas about reality. Many of Erlich’s works have been exhibited around the world. He first made the transition to short films with a video showing the assembly of his “Toilette” installation, which was presented in 2005. The film shows how a viewer perceives the phenomenon that occurs between the subject, a mirror, and space.

Produced by visual design studio, WOW.
*1 “Swimming Pool”, one of Erlich’s most well-known and critically acclaimed pieces, is a permanent installation at the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa

Nikon announces development of new firmware for Nikon D4S, Nikon D810, and Nikon D750
– The new firmware will provide support for recording command function with HDMI output from the selected FX-format cameras to external recorders

10th April 2015, SINGAPORE – Nikon Corporation proudly announces the development of a new firmware for its Nikon D4S, Nikon D810, and Nikon D750 DSLR cameras, as shared by Nikon Singapore Pte Ltd today. The new firmware will provide support for recording command function with HDMI output to external recorders. Nikon plans to release the new firmware in succession this summer.

The firmware will enable synchronization of recording start and stop with HDMI output from the D4S, D810, and D750. As video recorders will recognize camera operations, recording start and stop commands of the external recorder can be synchronized with the similar commands of the camera. This new firmware will provide greater support for recording of high-definition, uncompressed data that makes the most of the superior resolution of the D4S, D810, and D750, and the excellent rendering performance of NIKKOR lenses, to external recorders. It will also make editing videos that harness superior sharpness and clarity, and rich tone characteristics, more efficient.

Nikon will continue to expand its video recording functions, and provide greater support for these functions, in order to respond to the creative intent of professional photographers, videographers, video creators, and advanced amateurs, so that they may take full advantage of the performance and functions of Nikon imaging products.

Demonstrations of the firmware, currently under development, is planned for the Nikon booth at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show to be held in Las Vegas from April 11 (Saturday) through April 16 (Thursday)1.

*1 Demonstrations will be held beginning on April 13 (Monday). Nikon Inc., Nikon Corporation’s American subsidiary, will be represented at the NAB Show

• Development background
In recent years, the image and picture qualities of imaging devices, including digital cameras, have increased significantly. It has become easier than ever to enjoy high-resolution video, and customer needs for video recording functions have also increased. In addition, DSLR cameras are now being used for professional production of TV commercials and other video works, increasing the usage of these cameras beyond just the capture of still photos, but also for video recording with these applications.

With an awareness of the current situation, Nikon has developed a firmware that supports the enhancement of video recording functions so that users may more effectively utilise the Full HD video capability that achieves excellent sharpness and clarity with superior operation of the Nikon D4S, D810, and D750.

• About the Nikon D4S
The Nikon D4S is Nikon’s flagship FX-format DSLR camera that responds to the demands of professional photographers, who sometimes find themselves working under extremely challenging conditions, with improvements to a number of features and functions, including AF performance, image quality, workflow and operation, and movie recording. High-performance AF has been improved for more certain focus acquisition and better tracking performance, alongside superior picture quality with a sharper, more three-dimensional feel has been achieved for movies that exhibit rich expression of tones and stunning sharpness that preserves details. The D4S is also equipped with a high-performance viewfinder that offers better visibility, and both the grip and operation have been enhanced.

• About the Nikon D810
The Nikon D810 is a DSLR camera that boasts the best image quality in the history of Nikon DSLR cameras. This has been achieved with a new Nikon FX-format CMOS sensor built without an optical low-pass filter, an effective pixel count of 36.3-million pixels, adoption of the latest EXPEED 4 image-processing engine, and a broad standard range of sensitivities, from ISO 64 to ISO 12800, that realize stunning sharpness and rich tone characteristics. The camera also supports recording of smooth, extremely sharp full-HD (1920 × 1080/60p) movies.

• About the Nikon D750
The Nikon D750 is a new model added to the Nikon FX-format DSLR line-up. It offers an effective pixel count of 24.3-million pixels, and is equipped with a new Nikon FX-format CMOS image sensor and the EXPEED 4 image-processing engine. Supporting superior image quality and full-scale specifications that pursue those of professional models, the D750 performs in a very agile, compact, lightweight, and slim body. It is also the first Nikon FX-format camera for which a tilting LCD monitor and built-in Wi-Fi® function have been adopted for greater convenience.
