New version of Pixii digital rangefinder introduced

In October 2018, the young French company Pixii announced its first product, the M-mount digital rangefinder camera of the same name. The 12MP aluminum camera was equipped with an electronic viewfinder, a small OLED information display on top and a small number of buttons. It went on sale in July 2020 at a price of € 2,900. Pixii recently introduced an updated version of this product.

As with the original model, the new camera uses sighting and rangefinder focusing, but now has a new viewfinder. The sensor format remains the same, but its resolution has been increased to 26 megapixels. Equally important, it is a back-illuminated sensor with an estimated dynamic range of 14 stops. And if the range of light sensitivity of the original Pixii was ISO 200-6400, then the new model has it is ISO 160-12800.

The new interactive viewfinder “has a built-in miniature display that projects key information directly into the optical viewfinder.” Unlike other rangefinder cameras, the new Pixii allows photographers to work with all camera settings without distracting from the viewfinder. The viewfinder has a magnification of 0.67x. You can select the frame boundaries for focal lengths of 28, 35, 40 and 50 mm.

Another innovation is the USB-C connector, which will allow for faster charging. The minimum amount of internal memory has been increased from 4 GB to 8 GB. Options are offered with 32, 64 and 128 GB of memory.

Of note is the addition of support for GPR format, LUT-based color profiles, monochrome mode for 16-bit single-plane monochrome DNG files, built-in support for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity.

The new Pixii camera will be available for pre-order starting September 30th. Prices start at € 2999. The version with 32 GB of flash memory costs about 3240 euros, with 64 GB – 3380 euros, with 128 GB – 3540 euros. Orders are expected to begin shipping on October 11th.

The specs for almost every Intel desktop processor of the Raptor Lake generation have surfaced online.

According to this document, we are waiting for 14 CPUs with the number of cores from four to 24, while there will be only one quad-core – Core i3-13100. The next model (Core i5-13400) will have 10 cores, and it will also be the only one, because the Core i5-13500 and a number of older CPUs will already offer 14 cores.

Only the Core i9s will get the new die type, as only they will have a full configuration with eight large and 16 small cores. By the way, the Core i9-13900KS is not in the table, so it really may not be, especially if we recall the recent data on the 350-watt power limit for older Cores.

For these purposes, BSNL and MTNL received about $20 billion. The Indian government wants all of the industry’s core technologies to be developed domestically without much dependence on foreign players. India also wants all intellectual property to remain inside.

However, it is not clear how this will affect the development of 5G networks in India, because it will take Indian companies a lot of time to develop the appropriate equipment.
