The Fujifilm GFX 50S’s High ISO Quality is Insane

The Fujifilm GFX 50S’s High ISO Quality is Insane The Fujifilm GFX 50S‘s ISO invariance makes it so easy to shoot the Milky Way that it’s not even funny. I was able to take an “impossible” shot, capturing the Milky Way in the middle of Sydney, during a light festival, without bracketing on the Milky Way. The sensor captured so much info on the highlights that this was possible. I took this 80MP composition three days ago: When I acquired the Fujifilm GFX, I didn’t know what to expect, or even whether I would keep it. After all, I already own a marvel of engineering: the Sony a7R II. My Sony never failed to...

Startup Promises VR with ‘Human Eye Resolution’

Startup Promises VR with ‘Human Eye Resolution’ Virtual reality is an up and coming industry. Big jumps are being made, with many genres of photography and film getting on board. But VR has always been limited in its resolution, with the experience feeling a bit pixelated to the user. Finnish startup Varjo wants to change this with “human eye resolution.” Having emerged from stealth mode this week, Varjo is making bold claims about its virtual reality software and headsets. Codenamed “20|20” after perfect human vision, the prototype headset was created by a team of optical scientists, creatives, and developers,...
