Sony FE 14mm F1.8 G Master Ultra Wide Angle Lens Introduced

Published

on

As expected, Sony recently unveiled the FE 14mm F1.8 G Master lens, which was tentatively announced about a month ago. According to the manufacturer, this full-frame mirrorless lens is characterized by high resolution and minimal geometric distortion throughout the frame, so it is well suited for shooting landscapes, architecture, starry skies and interiors. At the same time, the lens turned out to be surprisingly compact and lightweight for its category. In particular, it is two and a half times lighter than the similar Sigma 14mm F1.8 DG HSM Art lens, introduced in 2017 and which, according to Sigma, became the first lens with this combination of focal length and maximum aperture.

The Sony FE 14mm F1.8 G Master uses a proprietary Nano AR Coating II to help prevent flare and ghosting when shooting near bright light sources.

The diaphragm control ring can rotate smoothly or in steps. There is also an AF / MF switch and a configurable button to save the focus position, which can be assigned to another function of your choice. The lens is weatherproof. The protective cover on the front element prevents contamination. Threaded filters are not possible, but the mount has a slot for film filters and a template is included to create filters of the correct size and shape.

Sony FE 14mm F1.8 G Master Lens Specifications:

  • focal length – 14 mm;
  • aperture – f / 1.8-f / 16;
  • optical design – 14 elements in 11 groups, including Super ED element, aspherical element, 2 XA elements and 2 ED elements.
  • the minimum focusing distance is 0.25 m;
  • the maximum magnification is 0.1x;
  • the number of aperture blades – 9;
  • focusing – automatic with a built-in linear drive and manual;
  • diameter – 83 mm;
  • length – 100 mm;
  • Weight – 460 g.

Sales of new items will begin in May at a price of $ 1,600.

Apple has a brand new product almost ready The company

It looks like Apple’s mixed reality headset is indeed in its final stages of development.

Apple has a brand new product almost ready.  The company first showed a mixed reality headset to the board of directors

The source claims that last week Apple demonstrated the device to the Board of Directors for the first time.

Initially, Apple allegedly planned to announce at WWDC 2022, but technical problems, including overheating, forced the company to change plans. At the same time, Apple recently accelerated the development of the RealityOS operating system, on the basis of which the headset will work.

Apple is now expected to introduce the device either in the fall along with the iPhone 14 or as early as early 2023. Given that the company’s smartwatches were introduced in 2014 and AirPods were shown in 2016, this will be Apple’s first brand new product in years.

There are not so many details about the device on the Web, and even those sometimes vary greatly. For example, the headset is credited with 15 cameras required for gesture tracking, micro-OLED screens, a gaze tracking system, and a price in excess of $2,000.

Apple took over half of the North American smartphone market

Canalys analysts report that shipments of smartphones in North America in the first quarter increased by 3.7%, to 39 million units.

The undisputed leader is Apple, which increased sales by 19%, taking 51% of the market with 19.9 million smartphones sold. Samsung increased sales by only 1%, to 10.5 million, taking 27% of the market. Motorola closes the top three with a growth of 56%, a share of 10% and 4 million smartphones sold.

Fourth place goes to TCL, which sells Alcatel-branded smartphones. The company’s sales fell 21% to 1.4 million smartphones. And, apparently, in the near future it will shift to fifth place, as Google is growing at an incredible pace.

The search giant’s smartphone sales are up 380% (or more, but more on that below)! As a result, the company now occupies 3% of the market, having sold 1.2 million smartphones in the quarter. Still, despite a number of data, sales of the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro are clearly very good by the standards of Google itself.

All other brands in North America account for only 15% of the market, and sales of all these companies in total collapsed by 64%, to 2.1 million units.

Separately, it is worth noting that in some points the data in the table looks strange. In particular, Google’s growth from 0.2 million to 1.2 million smartphones is clearly over 380%.

There isn’t much information out there yet. We are talking about a screen with a resolution of 2360 x 1640 pixels, 64-128 GB of flash memory and 4-6 GB of RAM. The tablet will be available in three colors, with one of the colors taken from smartphones in the GT line. You can also see the stylus in the image.

Given the design and resolution, we can definitely say that this will not be just a slightly modified Realme Pad. Recall that the tablet was credited with Snapdragon 870, and some version with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 may also come out.

The price is a plug of 9999 yuan, so there is no point in talking about it.
