Hey mates! Hope you are doing great!

Today I’m gonna talk you about a very very cheap full frame camera.

Yes, the title is a little bit provoking – did you start to think about some X100/XE/XT full frame reading it? – but it still says the truth.

And the truth is that you can have a full frame camera, with optical viewfinder and no shutter lag for about 7 Euro!

The PocketWizard Plus IV Does TTL Transmission With Most Flashes

PlusIV three quarters 5x3.75

One trigger to rule them all: that seems to be the philosophy behind the new PocketWizard Plus IV transceivers. The reason: When mounted into a camera hot shoe, it promises to deliver TTL performance with most Canon, Nikon and Panasonic cameras and flashes–and the company is still testing the compatibility with both Fujifilm and Olympus gear. Additionally, it has an extra hot shoe that adds TTL pass through if the user wishes. No word on Sony capabilities though–and that’s sad considering there are so many Sony shooters who read this blog.

PocketWizard says that this isn’t a replacement for the Plus III though and instead it’s supposed to live beside it. The Plus IV features all the features otherwise such as zones: being a transmitter or receiver, radio extensions, etc. In fact, I still often use mine.

No word yet on pricing; but we can expect it to be available in January 2016. Considering we’re currently at Photo Plus Expo and I’m writing this post in the Javitz center, we’re going to try to get our hands on them for some play time.

This looks like a solution that Strobists will truly enjoy.

More photos are after the jump.

Fujifilm Introduces X-A1 Entry Level X-Mount Camera and 50-230mm X-Mount Lens

Fujifilm X-A1 with 16-50mm kit lens black

The previously rumored Fujifilm X-A1 entry-level X-mount camera is now official, and it looks just like in the leaked pictures: that is like the X-M1 with a slightly different styling. What  sets the X-A1 apart from the X-M1–and from all other X-mount cameras for that matter–is the lack of X-Trans color filter array on its sensor. Instead, Fuji opted for a conventional APS-C sized CMOS sensor with bayer pattern in the X-A1. The camera sports 16.1 megapixels resolution bundled with an EXR II image processor. ISO goes from 200-6,400, and the 3″ 920k dot rear display is tiltable, just like on the X-M1. Additional features include WiFi and Full-HD video recording.
