  • Green Mountain Camera Adds Panasonic to Product Line-Up

    Panasonic Lumix GH3 Panasonic Lumix GH3

    Waterbury Center, Vt., NOV. 17, 2013: Green Mountain Camera, one of New England’s leading photo specialty retailers, confirms Panasonic has named the Vermont business an authorized dealer of Panasonic digital imaging products. Panasonic is one of the world’s leading electronics manufacturers, and makes the popular Lumix line of digital cameras, lenses and accessories.

    “Panasonic is a natural fit for Green Mountain Camera,” stated Robert Ste. Marie, Owner of Green Mountain Camera. “Panasonic manufactures very high quality, innovative products, and that is what our customers have come to expect from us.”

    Panasonic is recognized for developing and manufacturing innovative still and video imaging products, including the micro four-thirds range of Pansonic Lumix branded cameras and lenses. The Panasonic Lumix GH3, an example of a micro four-thirds camera, was recently named the “Champion Moviemaker” in Popular Photography’s Pop Awards of Photography’s Outstanding Products for 2013. The GH3 features the highest video capture (1920x1080p60 at up to 72Mbps) of any camera that uses compression to record, and does so without sacrificing capturing high quality still images.

    Panasonic has a long-standing partnership with Leica, which is a worldwide leading manufacturer of high quality optics. The Panasonic Lumix brand features many of Leica’s optical designs, and “Lumix” was coined by combining “luminance” and “mix”, suggesting the mixture of Panasonic’s digital technologies and Leica’s optical technologies into one brand. The Panasonic-Leica partnership is an example of Panasonic’s commitment to manufacturing high-quality imaging products.

    “Green Mountain Camera has been a Leica dealer for many years now, and we’ve established a large customer base dedicated to the Leica brand,” states Tessa K. Ferrario, Operations Manager of Green Mountain Camera. “These customers are always curious to see what the Panasonic Lumix line has to offer them. Green Mountain Camera is excited to now be able to demonstrate that line to our customers.”

    Green Mountain Camera will start to receive Panasonic cameras and lenses including the GH3, GX7, and LX7, soon. Panasonic digital cameras, lenses and accessories will be available for sale and demonstration in Green Mountain Camera retail stores in South Burlington, Vt., and Waterbury Center, Vt.. Panasonic products will also be available online through Green Mountain Camera’s website.

  • Nikon Df Digital SLR Camera and Limited Edition 50mm f/1.8 Lens Announced

    Nikon Df Digital SLR Camera If you have been paying attention to the Nikon USA website, you've probably noticed the series of videos they have been posting on the homepage. Over several days, and through a series of well-produced teaser videos, Nikon has been strategically revealing what we can now say is the Nikon Df. Nikon's revelation campaign centered around getting back to "Pure Photography", and made it clear that the Df would be a throw-back to a previous chapter of Nikon's history.

    We feel this has been one of Nikon's best marketing efforts for a camera announcement. Product announcements are typically thrown at the public. One day the product is a secret, the next day the whole world knows. The campaign to reveal the Nikon Df created a lot of buzz, and got a lot of people excited...including us.

    If you weren't already aware, used camera equipment is a big part of our business. I don't think there is a time when we don't have a Nikon FM, FM2, or similar type of mechanical 35mm film camera around. We see them all the time, and that is a testament to how popular the older, mechanical Nikon film cameras were. The new Nikon Df digital SLR is a throw-back to that time, and highlights a lot of the manual features that were standard on those analog cameras.

    Nikon Df Manual Features

     

    As you can see, the control dials of the Nikon Df are built for manual control. It's strange to see a mechanical ISO setting dial on a digital camera. The information display on the top has shrunk. Here the display features shutter speed, aperture value, battery charge, and shots left on the memory card. And that's it. This downsized display has made room for a quite large shutter value dial, and also the mode selector dial (manual, aperture value priority, shutter value priority and program mode). For digital cameras these things are typically manipulated by the press of a button.

    Nikon is using the same 16.2 megapixel (MP) full-frame (FX format in Nikon's terminology) image sensor, paired with the Nikon EXPEED 3 image processor, as seen in their flagship Nikon D4. Nikon boasts that the Df is their thinnest and lightest full-frame digital SLR to date. The Nikon Df also features a huge ISO range that is expandable up to 204,800. I'm sure a lot of users will be happy to get some of the performance aspects (image quality) of the D4 for half the price.

    We're really excited that Nikon has developed a lens mount system for this camera that will allow it to work with all modern AF-S, AF-D and AF NIKKOR lenses, in addition to AI and non-AI lenses alike. Owners of old NIKKOR glass will really appreciate that inclusion.

    The camera also features a continuous shooting speed of 5.5 frames per second, and Wi-Fi with the optional Nikon Wu-1a adapter. Of all the features that this camera does include, the Nikon Df does not have video. The Df has no option for capturing video. I guess Nikon's idea of "pure photography" is still capture only.

    The Nikon Df should be available by the end of this month (November, 2013) in both silver and black, and will cost $2749.95 for the body only. Nikon has produced a limited edition AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G lens with retro styling to match the new Nikon Df. The camera will be sold as a kit with this lens for $2999.95. We'll have the new Nikon Df online and in our stores for demonstration and sale as soon as they come in, and we are currently taking pre-orders. Just give us a call at (802) 244-0883 if you are interested.

  • Green Mountain Camera Joins Fujifilm Authorized Elite Digital Dealers

    Waterbury Center, Vt., NOV. 2, 2013: Green Mountain Camera is the latest retailer to join the Fujifilm program of Authorized Elite Digital Dealers. Green Mountain Camera enters the program as the first photo specialty retailer based in Vermont.

    The Fujifilm Authorized Elite Digital Dealer program is a limited dealership opportunity where authorized dealers demonstrate and sell the X-Series lineup of Fujifilm digital imaging products.

    Fujifilm X100s

    “Green Mountain Camera is extremely honored to be part of Fujifilm’s Elite Dealer program,” stated John Ste. Marie, Owner of Green Mountain Camera. “We are excited to bring the X-Series lineup of digital imaging products to our customer base, here in Vermont and throughout the United States.”

    “This is exactly the type of product our customers want to see,” stated Tessa K. Ferrario, Operations Manager of Green Mountain Camera. “High-end digital imaging products like the X-series line are not always common in local retail stores, but customers want to see what these products have to offer. Looking online is not the same as having something in your hands.”

    Green Mountain Camera will have Fujifilm X-series digital imaging products on display for demonstration in retail stores in South Burlington, Vt., and Waterbury Center, Vt.. These products will also be available online through Green Mountain Camera’s website.

  • Nikon 58mm f/1.4G AF-S NIKKOR Lens Added to Nikon Lineup

    Nikon 58mm f/1.4G AF-S NIKKOR Lens

    A fast normal lens for which advanced optical design technologies have been adopted for both superior rendering of point light sources and beautiful bokeh with smooth focusing transition from blurred to sharp

    TOKYO - Nikon is pleased to announce the release of the AF-S NIKKOR 58mm f/1.4G, a fast normal lens compatible with Nikon FX-format digital SLR cameras.

    The Nikon 58mm f/1.4G is a lens that makes the most of advanced optical design technologies long cultivated by Nikon to achieve high reproduction capability of point light sources even at the maximum aperture, and natural depth of subjects utilizing smooth and beautiful bokeh characteristics. With shooting of distant night landscapes, the lens minimizes the sagittal coma flare that makes a point light source look like a bird with its wings spread to render point light sources as sharp points with no distortion or fringes across the entire frame, even at maximum aperture, for clear and crisp night landscape shots.
    In addition, the Nikon 58mm f/1.4G renders subjects impressively with beautiful bokeh that moderately changes as the distance from the sharply focused point increases for natural depth that makes near human subjects or still objects appear more three dimensional.

    What's more, despite being a fast lens, not only is light falloff controlled for natural brightness across the entire frame, even at the maximum aperture of f/1.4, for sharp rendering of objects at infinity, but adoption of Nano Crystal Coat effectively reduces flare and ghost.

    This single lens responds to the demands of professional and advanced amateur photographers looking to achieve the images they intend with all types of photos, from night landscapes to impressive photos utilizing bokeh.

    Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 58mm f/1.4G Primary Features

    -A fast normal lens with a focal length of 58mm and maximum aperture of f/1.4 that utilizes advanced optical design technologies
    -Minimization of sagittal coma flare for high reproduction capability of point light sources as sharp points across the entire frame
    -Sharp, high-resolution images can be reproduced even at the maximum aperture
    -Original lens characteristics that provide natural depth reproduction with which the degree of bokeh moderately changes as the distance from the sharply focused point increases
    -Controlled light falloff retains natural brightness across the entire frame even at the maximum aperture of f/1.4
    -Nano Crystal Coat effectively reduces flare and ghost

    Development background

    The Nikon 58mm f/1.4G was developed as a lens that offers new photographic creativity possible only with NIKKOR lenses.

    Point light source reproduction capability with superior resolution and no distortion or fringes was improved with further development of the concept behind the Ai Noct Nikkor 58mm f/1.2 (released in 1977), which enabled rendering of point light sources as sharp points, as well as adoption of advanced optical design technologies based on 80 years of Nikon know-how and optical technologies. Further, Nikon also adopted a design concept based on the reproduction of three-dimensional subjects as natural images with depth in two-dimensional photography for a "three-dimensionally high-fidelity lens". As a result, the lens also offers beautiful bokeh capabilities.

    This exclusive reproduction capability expands the ways in which users express themselves for positioning that distinguishes this lens from other lenses.

     

  • Olympus Stylus 1 - Big Zoom, Fast Aperture Lens Camera Announced

    Olympus Stylus 1 Front View

    Olympus STYLUS 1® UNIFIES DSLR PERFORMANCE, LENS POWER AND MAXIMUM PORTABILITY IN ONE COMPACT PACKAGE

    The First Olympus Fusion of Ultimate Image Quality, High-Powered i.ZUIKO® DIGITAL Lens, and Built-In EVF

    CENTER VALLEY, PA., October 29, 2013 – Olympus has redefined the enthusiast compact camera by uniting many of the best features found across its camera lineup in the new STYLUS. Designed for semi-pro shooters who demand optical brilliance, DSLR operation, convenience and portability, this one-size-fits-all package has head-turning, OM-inspired looks as well as premium imaging performance.

    The STYLUS 1 includes an i.ZUIKO lens that incorporates the outstanding optical quality of the Olympus ZUIKO interchangeable lenses. At its heart is a large 1/1.7-inch BSI CMOS sensor and TruePic VI image processor along with additional features, including the built-in electronic viewfinder (EVF) from the award-winning Olympus OM-D E-M5® and Wi-Fi for shooting and sharing anywhere. Whether you want the latest and greatest high-tech tool, or if you simply prefer something that is lightweight and easy to take when you are on the go, there is truly something for everyone.

    One Great Lens

    The newly developed, ultra-slim 10.7x (28–300mm*) high-power i.ZUIKO lens features constant f2.8 brightness across the zoom range and is versatile enough to capture wide to telephoto shots and produce pro-quality stills with beautiful, defocused backgrounds and crisp images even when telephoto shooting in low light. The large diameter lens incorporates a powerful, built-in VCM image stabilization mechanism that virtually eliminates camera shake and blur. Its lens can also capture stunning macro shots from 2 inches away. When the lens is not in use, it retracts fully into the camera body (behind a removable automatic lens cap), so the STYLUS 1 fits easily into a coat pocket.

    One Great Sensor

    Olympus designed the new lens to work seamlessly with its 12.0 megapixel 1/1.7-inch high-sensitivity backlit CMOS sensor and TruePicVI image processor, the same processor used in the Olympus OM-D

    E-M5, for fast recovery time and shutter speed to capture images with rich details and low noise. Images come through with true-to-life flesh tones, brilliant blue skies and precise tonal expression. The STYLUS 1 also inherits FAST TOUCH AF system from the Olympus PEN® series for near-instant, precision focusing via the tilt-able LCD touchscreen monitor.

    One Great Electronic Viewfinder

    The STYLUS 1 is the first Olympus enthusiast, premium compact camera equipped with a built-in electronic viewfinder (EVF). The 1.44 million dot resolution LCD EVF has a 1.15x viewfinder magnification rate (equivalent to 0.58x of 35mm film camera) and 100 percent field of view — just like a DSLR — so users can easily compose their subjects directly with clear visibility from the center to the edges. The eye sensor automatically switches the live view display from the high-resolution 3.0-inch, 1.04 million dot resolution tilt-able LCD touchscreen monitor to the EVF in no time as the camera approaches the user’s eye. A variety of information is displayed in an easy-to-view layout on the EVF screen, including variables such as exposure and color.

    Operability for all Shooting Styles

    The STYLUS 1 incorporates an ideal blend of effective, hands-on controls, including a hybrid control ring similar to the one found on the Olympus STYLUS XZ-2 iHS. The control ring is built around the lens and can be switched between digital and analog operation with the control lever located on the front of the camera. In digital mode, the ring turns smoothly for fine zooming or manual focusing, and in analog mode, users can adjust settings such as aperture, shutter speed and more. The front grip ensures a precise hold, while the sub-dial, positioned near the shutter button, provides further operational accuracy. The camera is also equipped with a hot shoe for accessories, built-in flash, a side zoom lever with variable speeds and two customizable function buttons for easy access to commonly used settings.

    Wi-Fi Sharing and Control

    Built-in Wi-Fi is easy to set up. By quickly scanning the QR code displayed on the camera's LCD with a smart device, it syncs with the Wi-Fi network created by the camera. The free Olympus Image Share 2.1 Smartphone app synchronizes a user’s Smartphone and the STYLUS 1 so the camera’s “Live View” is effectively displayed on the phone, and the camera can be controlled by touching the Smartphone display*. Users can wirelessly adjust various settings, such as the shutter speed, aperture value, ISO and exposure compensation, as well as operate the Live Bulb shooting mode from their Wi-Fi devices. They can also use their Smartphone to embed GPS information into their images.

    Creative Possibilities

    In addition to superior still image quality, the 1080p Full HD Movie capability with stereo sound and high-speed movie recording (120fps/240fps) captures movies for dramatic slow-motion playback of fast-action scenes. The STYLUS 1’s 11 included Art Filters™ with bracketing option, five Art Effects and Photo Story, which shoots a group of still photos straight into attractive, prepared layouts, effortlessly bring the user’s artistic visions to life. Users can also capture RAW image data for post-processing flexibility, create motion blur effects without overexposing thanks to a built-in ND filter (with 3 EV stops) and capture up to 7 frames per second in full resolution!

    Several new accessories are designed to complement the STYLUS 1 and broaden the creative potential of this powerhouse compact camera. The EP-11 eyecup cuts out peripheral light for improved visibility in bright conditions; a full-body jacket protects the camera against damage and comes with a tailored cover, and the CLA-13 converter adapter for the high-grade TCON-17x 1.7x teleconverter lens that extends the focal length of the camera to 510mm and retains the outstanding brightness of a constant 1:2.8 aperture.

    *35mm equivalent.

    U.S. Pricing and Availability
    The Olympus STYLUS 1 will be available in December 2013.
