Sony's new A9 camera with full-frame stacked CMOS sensor

20.04.2017

Sony A9 ILCE-9 Alpha photo Sony introduced a new, revolutionary digital camera, the A9 (model ILCE-9). The most technologically advanced, innovative digital camera that Sony has ever created, the new A9 offers high-speed, blackout-free continuous shooting at up to 20 fps, 60 AF/AE tracking calculations per second, a maximum shutter speed of up to 1/32,000 second and much more. These features are made possible thanks to its new 35mm full-frame stacked Exmor RS CMOS sensor -- the world's first of its kind -- which enables data speed processing at up to 20x faster than previous Sony full-frame mirrorless cameras. This unique sensor is paired with a brand new, upgraded BIONZ X processing engine and front-end LSI that maximises overall performance. The new A9 also features a vibration free, fully electronic, completely silent anti-distortion shutter, a new Z battery (NP-FZ100) with approximately 2.2x the capacity of W batteries, dual SD media card slots (one with UHS-II support), an Ethernet port, new Quad-VGA OLED Tru-Finder with approximately 3,686k dots, a 5-axis image stabilisation system, uncompressed 14-bit RAW support, and 4K video recording across the full width of the full-frame image sensor. Additionally, the camera can record Full HD at 120 fps at up to 100 Mbps. The new A9 will start shipping from May 2017 (U.S.A.) to June 2017 (Europe) priced at approximately 4,500 USD / 5,300 EUR / 4,500 GBP. [source]

Autodesk Maya 2018 ships
27.07.2017

Autodesk Maya 2018 video animation worgflow Autodesk Maya 2018 has arrived. The new version comes with enhanced workflows across the board, including enhanced modeling tools with Topological Symmetry support, single top-level symmetry control, and vector displacement map stamps. An improved shape authoring workflow offers a smoother experience, including the ability to perform pose-space deformation on rigged characters. New tools for working with UVs allow artists to stack similar UV shells, automatically redistribute UVs for even spacing, and constrain the movement of UVs along edges. Animators will benefit from updates to the recently added Time Editor and overhauled, faster-to-use Graph Editor. With 64-bit time precision, Maya 2018 adds timecode improvements with new non-integer framerates, NTSC drop and non-drop formats, allowing users to use standard capture formats without having to convert data. For the first time, rigid-body dynamics can be combined with procedural instancing, through simple and fast-to-manage dynamic properties and constraints over large numbers of instances. With just a few clicks, users can create complex arrangements of animated instances that can act dynamically, collide with each other, be bounced around by dynamic forces, and be constrained. Maya 2018 also welcomes Arnold 5 to the family with all the full features as its built-in renderer, introducing better samplers, improved speed, and simplified workflows. Arnold 5 also comes with new, more physically-accurate shaders, such as a standard surface shader, a standard hair shader, and a volume shader. Maya 2018 also includes hundreds of bug fixes to deliver a better overall experience. [source]
