Hyundai continues to tease the upcoming Ioniq 6 electric sedan by releasing a concept sketch of the car.

The South Korean automaker has been quite open that the Ioniq 6 will look a lot like the Prophecy concept unveiled in March 2020. This sketch confirms that will indeed be the case since the profile of the Ioniq 6 looks virtually identical to the concept. .

Also watch: Hyundai Ioniq 6 promises to be an ‘Electrified Streamliner’ in first teaser video

Key elements of the EV’s design that we can see in this teaser include the car’s curvaceous silhouette and large wheels. We can also see that it sports a large ducktail style rear spoiler, similar to the Prophecy concept spoiler. The production car’s rear overhang also looks largely identical to the concept.

Other key exterior design details of the Ioniq 6 will be pixel-style headlights and taillights similar to those of the Ioniq 5 and the new Staria.

Hyundai has yet to preview the car’s interior, but last year a prototype was spied in Korea, giving us a glimpse of what to expect from the cabin. This prototype was equipped with digital cameras in place of traditional exterior mirrors and also sported a floating center console that could slide back and forth like in the Ioniq 5. The car will also land with a digital instrument panel, a advanced head-up display. , and a large infotainment system similar to other Hyundai models.

The Ioniq 6 will be based on the same E-GMP platform as the Ioniq 5, Kia EV6 and Genesis GV60. Hyundai previously announced that it would sport a 73 kWh battery and be offered with two different powertrains. The first of them will consist of a single 215 hp electric motor while the second model will have a two-motor system with a combined output of 308 hp. Hyundai is believed to be aiming for a range of over 300 miles (482 km).

Fujifilm Chairman Ian Wilkerson, fourth from left, and dignitaries cut the ribbon for a new water-based ink plant.

As Fujifilm celebrated the opening of the first of its two new ink manufacturing plants in Delaware on Thursday, its chairman said Friday he might need more.

“There may not be enough capacity,” said Ian Wilkinson. “So we have to think about what we do next.”

Its 20-acre New Castle site will house Fujifilm Imaging Colorants Inc.’s first dispersion ink manufacturing facility in the United States. The $19 million investment will create more than 21 new professional, management, engineering and skilled labor jobs, in addition to its current 90.

Jobs is rooted in the science of producing water-based digital inks, which allow printers much more flexibility in product usage. They are intended for heavy commercial work.

Analog printing, Wilkerson said, typically requires a large order to make it worthwhile to set up. But digital inks allow companies to specialize by item.

This means a printer can put a person’s name on a single pair of new sneakers or modify food packaging to include symbols related to a specific geographic area to attract shoppers to a store, a- he declared.

Although the commercial printing process may be the same as that used in a home printer, the size of the machines and the quantities of ink required are enormous.

Wilkerson brandishes an office printer cartridge he had just changed.

“You have like five milliliters of ink in there, maybe, and it costs you $40, $50 or something,” he said. “Here at this facility, our water-based ink capacity is equivalent to eight Olympic swimming pools.”

Many people over 40 may think of Fuji as a film company that sold rolls of film or single-use cameras, competing with Kodak at the time.

Now, Wilkerson said, it’s a multi-faceted business with its biggest source of revenue coming from the medical sector.

When it became apparent in the 1990s that digital cameras were going to take over the photography industry, Fuji decided to leverage its core competency in imaging and imaging technology, said Wilkerson.

In the medical sector, it sells, among other things, magnetic resonance imaging devices.

Fujifilm entered the inkjet business in 2005, Wilkerson said.

Until now, the pigments used in Fujifilm’s water-based inks were made only in Scotland and had to be shipped worldwide from there. Oil-based inks are made in other places using other types of specialized equipment, he said.

Having factories in Delaware provides the company with many advantages, Wilkerson said.

The new investment allows them to shorten supply chains and save money on freight while increasing the sustainability of the business, he said.

Fujifilm will manufacture its own concentrate, then pump it to its own factory a few meters away. This makes it easier and faster for the company to ship to the United States and Latin America.

“So we needed volume because things are going very well,” he said. “But we also needed geography.”

This Fujifilm render released in March shows what the New Castle facility was supposed to look like.

Wilkerson said the company considered multiple sites for its ink plant, but moved to Delaware after finding local officials who were cooperative, business-friendly and happy to add skilled jobs.

The 8,100 square foot factory is in addition to the 40,000 square feet of manufacturing space currently occupied by Fujifilm at the site, which employs 90 people.

The building currently under construction will add an additional 11,000 square feet. The opening is scheduled for March.

Like other companies, Wilkerson said hiring has been slower than it would have been three years ago, but he expects no problems filling the 21 new jobs.

It’s also happy to say that Fujifilm is now experiencing something of a full circle moment.

While most people stopped using cameras in favor of their smartphones in the early 2000s, some young people stopped using phone cameras in favor of cameras that worked like Polaroids.

They take a picture and a small square of emulsion-covered paper pops out. When the ink self-develops, there is a photo. People stick them on the walls as part of the decor, he said.

As this trend spread in popularity, Fujifilm bought the Instax company and is once again manufacturing cameras and photo film.

“Fujifilm is constantly evolving,” Wilkerson said. “So even in an area that has almost disappeared, it comes back again. It’s a more diverse business than people realize.

Wilkerson said the global ink market is probably not growing, but changing.

One example of change, he said, is newspapers, which are losing circulation and moving to digital sites.

He thinks Fujifilm is well positioned because of its high quality inks and patented technology. and expects it to expand.

Wilkerson said he’s not sure the company wants to expand at its current site in New Castle, which it has owned since 2006. Part of the property is forested with obvious wildlife and the company wouldn’t want to. not lose that, he said.

In the meantime, he would like Delawares to get more familiar with the business.

To this end, Fujifilm has asked its team to be the company’s ambassadors. They participate in public events, such as river cleanups, and on Saturday Wilkerson heads to the Delaware Art Museum to take part in its Beyond Juneteenth Egungun Festival, of which Fujifilm is a key sponsor.

“We want to become more active in the community and we need people to come and work for us,” Wilkerson said. “So we are looking for opportunities to support the community.”

Ikelite has unveiled its housing for the OM System OM-1 Micro Four Thirds mirrorless camera, the first camera from OM Digital Solutions – the company that took over the Olympus brand – and likely the last camera to get the badge. “Olympus” on the front. While the OM-1 superficially has a lot in common with the E-M1 Mark III, it improves on Olympus’ flagship in various ways: the sensor is a 20.4 MP stacked CMOS design, video is captured up to 4K/60p without the crop and burst shooting using the electronic shutter (with AF) is a rather impressive 50fps.

While the camera specifications have changed significantly, Ikelite has left its winning formula unchanged, offering a body very similar to that of the E-M1 III: built around the Dry Lock Micro (DLM) port system from the company, the OM-1 body features a large curved trigger (with the ability to extend the lever so that it is comfortably reached when using Ikelite’s tray and straight grip), a ABS-PC housing with transparent back and the ability to add a TTL converter for automatic exposure when using compatible DS-series strobes. Practically, it’s the same DL3 DS Link TTL converter that works with Olympus and Panasonic cameras, allowing you to switch between TTL and manual modes on the fly.

The best part about the new OM-1 case is that it’s priced the same as the E-M1 Mark III case: $950.

200DLM/B Underwater Housing for OM System OM-1 Mirrorless Cameras

The 200DLM/B Underwater Housing is the perfect companion for using OM System (Olympus) OM-1 Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Cameras in or around water for diving, snorkeling, surfing, the pool or any other adventure.


OM System OM-1

Not to be confused with the 50-year-old Olympus film camera, the OM-1 is the flagship micro four thirds mirrorless model of the rebranded OM System and possibly the last camera to carry the Olympus name to the front.

Whatever you call it, the OM-1 is a powerful mid-range camera and a joy to use underwater. The 20.4-megapixel camera has in-camera 5-axis image stabilization (IBIS), 4K/60p Ultra HD and 1080/240p video capture, and pretty decent battery capacity 520 shots per charge (CIPA).

Although you need a case to take it underwater (we’ve got you covered), the OM-1 has solid weather resistance as well as an IP rating. IP53 for dust and splash resistance.

Advantages of the Ikelite case

  • 200 ft (60 m) depth rating
  • Extendable trigger lever
  • Extendable AEL/AFL button thumb lever for rear button focus
  • Interchangeable Dry Lock Micro (DLM) port system including flat ports, 6″ dome ports and 8″ dome ports
  • Anti-corrosion ABS-PC construction
  • Clear rear sight with laser etched check markings
  • Ergonomic, field usable direct drive controls
  • Accessory ports for optional vacuum system and TTL converter
  • Supports LCD screen tilt
  • Made in the USA


Ergonomics and handling

Good ergonomics are essential when you need to focus on composition, focus and the right exposure. Large, curved control levers put the most important controls right where you need them: shutter and autofocus (via the AEL/AFL button). This combination allows you to shoot with or without back button focus, an advanced technique that is useful for precise focus of super macro and fast-moving subjects. Each lever can be extended using the optional Shutter Trigger Extension # 4077.95 for perfect spacing when using a straight grip.

All rotary controls are operated intuitively via premium touch buttons. The stainless steel direct-drive rotary controls are virtually fail-safe and user-serviceable and adjustable at a glance.

Camera buttons are accessed by smooth action, hard anodized aluminum push buttons for reliable performance and easy maintenance. These controls are clearly labeled by laser engraving on the back of the case that never fades or falls off.

Two 1/4-20 threaded mounting points are included on the bottom of the case for simple, rotation-free attachment of a tray and handle system. The handles improve ergonomics underwater and form the basis of your light stands. Tray with two quick release handles # 9523.64 is the most popular choice for handling and securing accessories.


Implement

The camera mount is front-loading for easy installation and removal. A small mounting plate attaches to the bottom of the camera and attaches to the front of the housing. The camera mounting plate does not need to be removed from the camera for surface use or when changing battery or memory cards. The mounting plate features a 1/4-20 threaded mount on the bottom so it can be attached to a tripod on the surface.


Trust

The unique rear seal design prevents accidental twisting or stretching of the O-ring for simple and secure assembly. We’ve eliminated the need for an o-ring groove or channel that can trap sand, dirt or debris. Two double passivated stainless steel locking lid snaps are simple to use and virtually unbreakable. The transparent back allows you to see the o-ring forming a strong, tight seal as it closes.


Vacuum test

A spare 1/2-20 threaded accessory port is provided on the side of the housing for easy installation of the optional vacuum kit # 47012. A vacuum kit allows you to create a vacuum on the housing to check for leaks before entering the water. .

Drawing a vacuum on the system also provides additional safety on the water surface, especially important when using the housing in choppy waves.


Viewfinders

The camera’s large, super-bright LCD screen is viewable edge-to-edge through the rear of the case. An included optical viewfinder window blocks out ambient light to enhance viewing of the camera’s electronic viewfinder (EVF) for composing and reviewing images.

Get the brightest, sharpest view from the camera’s OLED electronic viewfinder by adding an optional magnified viewfinder. The Supereye quickly and easily removes for attachment of a #6890.2 straight magnification sight or a #6891.3 45° (Type 3) magnification sight.

Lighting

Light is absorbed as it travels even short distances underwater, making colors look dull or monochromatic. To preserve the natural colors of your subject, it is important to stay within reach, no more than 3-4 feet (1m). For best results, we recommend adding an external flash or high power constant light if you regularly dive below 15′ (3m).

You can enjoy the fastest and most accurate TTL exposure on the market by adding the DL3 DS Link TTL Converter and Hotshoe Kit #46032 and a compatible Ikelite DS Strobe. Rear curtain flash sync is supported. Exposure compensation can be used added or subtracted in the camera.

Reliable locking connectors between the hot shoe and bulkhead make it easy to install the TTL hot shoe or carry spares when traveling to remote locations.

This camera does not have a built-in flash for triggering fiber optic strobes.

A constant bright video light can be used instead of or in addition to a flash. A permanently on light is not as bright as a strobe flash. The always-on lights provide additional versatility as they can be used for focus assistance and to enhance colors when shooting video.

There is a simple rule that the brighter the better underwater. A high quality lighting system can produce professional quality results.


Port system

Changing ports couldn’t be easier than this system – just press the port and tighten the three thumbscrews. Feel the positive reinforcement that the port is secure with simple parts you can trust in a remote location.

This housing accepts ports from our DLM port system to accommodate a selection of the best zoom, macro and wide angle lenses for underwater use. Our custom optical-grade acrylic domes components deliver the color, clarity, and durability of glass at a fraction of the weight and cost of travel.


Durability and performance without corrosion

Our white ABS-PC blend housing provides a year of corrosion-free strength and performance with minimal maintenance. ABS-PC is lighter than aluminum for convenience during travel and less drag underwater. Specially formulated color deflects the sun to keep your camera cooler, longer. Compared to black or clear housings, the light color provides superior contrast for a better view of the camera, LCD screen and O-ring.


Made in the USA

Ikelite products are designed, manufactured and tested in the USA. We use top quality local materials. Our cases are handcrafted and individually tested for fit and function. Each unit is water pressure tested to 200 feet (60m). We back our products with over 50 years of experience and the best reputation for service within the diving industry.

Compatibility

This housing only accommodates the OM System OM-1 camera. Differences in lens and control placement prevent other camera models from being used interchangeably in the same body.

This housing is only compatible with OM system cameras as shipped from the manufacturer. Unless otherwise specified, this housing does not allow the use of additional handles, battery grips, eyepieces, LCD covers or other accessories.

City leaders announced Monday they would install at least 100 security cameras near Philadelphia schools affected by gun violence.

City Council Speaker Darrell Clarke (5th District) said he would introduce legislation this week, which includes $1.8 million, to fund at least 100 security cameras near the following Philadelphia schools:

1. Edison/Clemente School

2. Mastbaum High School

3. Bartram High School

4. South Philadelphia High School

5. Fels High School

6.Lincoln/Meehan/RWD

7. Dobbins High School

8. Ben Franklin High School

9. Duckery Elementary School

10. High School of the Future

11. Frankford High School

12. CAPA by Kensington

13. Northeast/Wilson School

14. Roxborough High School

15. Harding College

Officials also said more schools and cameras could be added as the program is implemented.

“We need every child to be safe when they go to school and come home later in the day,” Clarke said. “These cameras are a great start, and they will lend ‘eyes’ to law enforcement officials who work very hard to protect our children. I want to commend Schools Safety Chief Kevin Bethel and the Philadelphia Police Department for working closely with us to develop this camera program.

Clarke, who was joined by Mayor Jim Kenney and Philadelphia Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw, made the announcement at John Bartram High School in Southwest Philadelphia. In January, Christopher Braxton, a 17-year-old student at Bartram High, was shot and killed near the school shortly after being fired.

As of June 9, 94 people under the age of 18 have been shot in Philadelphia so far this year, an increase of 8% from the same time last year, according to city data.

“We know we live in an increasingly digital age, and Council President Clarke’s request for funding will help provide an extra level of security to some of the areas around our schools that are most affected by the scourge of gun violence,” said Commissioner Outlaw. “Now more than ever, we know that the presence of cameras not only has a deterrent effect on those who seek to cause harm in our communities, but that they also enable the capture of crucial evidence that is essential to the successful prosecution of offenders.”

The rise in gun violence is impacting the city as a whole. A gun violence tracker from the city comptroller’s office listed 815 non-fatal and 203 fatal gunshot victims as of June 12. Shootings accounted for the highest number of murders in Philadelphia this year. As of Sunday night, there were 227 homicides in Philadelphia in 2022, down 6% from the same time last year, which was the deadliest on record in the city.

“As we work together to address the upsurge in gun violence across the country and in Philadelphia, an important part of that effort is to ensure that the epidemic of gun violence does not affect children or interfere not with their learning, development and well-being,” Mayor Jim Kenney said. “The funding announced today will provide security cameras around schools most affected by gun violence and help ensure that schools and surrounding areas are the safe havens from violence that every student in Philadelphia deserves.”

There are additional resources for individuals or communities who have experienced gun violence in Philadelphia. Further information can be found here.

Few photographs can claim to have captured the exact moment. Even Henri Cartier-Bresson, the master, finally said that it was all a matter of luck. And luck was with Sena Vidanagama on July 30, 1987.

Vidanagama, who died on June 6, aged 76, was a photographer for Sri Lankan government publications Lake House, whose stable of newspapers includes the Daily News. He and Amal Jayasinghe, then a reporter for the Daily News, were assigned to cover the departure of Rajiv Gandhi from Sri Lanka a day after the signing of the India-Sri Lanka agreement. Vidanagama’s black-and-white photograph of what happened that day, taken with an Asahi Pentax, would earn him – and Vidanagama – a place in the pantheon of journalism’s greatest moments.

Sena Vidanagama

The omens around the Accord were not auspicious. The news that Indian soldiers were to be stationed in the Tamil-dominated northeast had already created an uproar in Sri Lanka’s Sinhalese-dominated south. Nationalist anger at Indian intervention – India’s training of Sri Lankan militants, an IAF food drop over Jaffna in June 1987 at a time when Sri Lankan forces had besieged the northern peninsula and thought they were about to win, the culmination in the landing of Indian troops – would lead to a full-scale insurrection over the next three years.

On July 28, a day before the Accord was signed, 19 people were killed in Colombo when police opened fire on protesters. In Delhi, there was uncertainty over Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi’s two-day visit to sign the deal. But it was decided that the agreement should be signed as planned.

On July 29, Colombo was under curfew. A contingent of 10,000 Buddhist monks gathered to march to the airport to protest Gandhi’s arrival. As they broke the security cordon, the police fired on them, killing five people. Gandhi was accompanied by his wife Sonia. They arrived with their own armored car and a large security contingent, and proceeded straight to a welcome ceremony at Galle Face Green. Prime Minister Ranasinghe Premadasa was conspicuous by his absence. The agreement was signed later in the day at the presidential palace further up the road.

On July 30, as Gandhi prepared to return to Delhi, he would leave an angry nation behind – in the north the LTTE had rejected the deal.

At the Daily News, Jayasinghe and Vidanagama were assigned to cover the departure ceremony. “It was not a high-priority mission, just a ceremonial event,” recalled Jayasinghe, who later headed AFP’s Colombo bureau.

While a band was playing, Gandhi inspected the formation of the navy. A sailor came out just after Gandhi passed him and brought his gun butt down on the PM. Gandhi ducked, looking back as he did, and took the hit on his shoulder. Within minutes, he was back beaming on the ceremonial dais with Sonia, President JR Jayewardene and the First Lady. The 22-year-old sailor, Wijemuni Vijitha Rohana de Silva, was arrested and eventually sentenced to seven years in prison. He was released after a few years following a pardon from Premadasa who had by then become president.

Vidanagama was the only photographer to capture the moment of the attack in a static shot, remarkably full of movement – Gandhi dodging, the butt of Wijemuni’s rifle swinging over his shoulder, the guard next to Gandhi leaning to the side.

Remember, it was years before the first digital camera came along. Back then, cameras had to be loaded with film, and after each shot a lever was operated to move the film to the next frame. A photographer could not be sure of the image he had captured before the film was developed and the negatives were hung to dry.

Thulasi Muttulingam, a former Daily News staffer, recounted in a blog post an interview with Sena in which he details how he took the photo from a six-foot-tall media dais on which all viewpoints had was taken by international photographers and official Indian and Sri Lankan television cameras. But everyone thought the mission was over after they clicked photos of Gandhi’s first steps in the honor guard and dropped their camera.

“I too had finished clicking on Rajiv Gandhi inspecting the honor guard, but I kept watching him as he walked down the line of sailors. I acted on reflex when I saw one of the men move away from the orderly line of sailors Gandhi was inspecting. I really didn’t have time to understand or process what was going on. I simply raised my camera and clicked. Deep down I had a vague idea that the sailor was fainting, but after all, even that was news. I had no idea at the time that I was clicking an assault. Everything happened very quickly… If I had had a camera with today’s technology, I could have taken all these photos but I had to launch my Asahi Pentax before each new shot, to do well focus and thus lose quite a bit [moments]. Back then, you couldn’t click through images one after another like you can now. »

With the coil stuffed into his socks, Vidanagama ran with Amal to Lake House. But it was hardly certain that photography would see the light of day. There was a confrontation between the editor and the boss of Lake House, who was also an adviser to the president.

The president had previously told the media that it was an accident – Wijemuni, the attacking sailor, fell from heat stroke. This was the story that the Sri Lankan government wanted to remember. Vidanagama’s photographs showed the opposite.

The Indian side also wanted to downplay the incident, writes ANI President Prem Prakash in his book, Reporting India. On the plane back to Delhi, as he recounted the incident to the rest of the hacking pack, the Prime Minister’s media adviser, HY Sharada Prasad, told him not to spread “misinformation” and that “there was no such incident”.

Amid protests from reporters, Gandhi watched the tape during the flight. Prakash told him that the entire international press was certain to have captured the incident. Both parties quickly realized that it was useless to hide the facts.

Sena’s photo appeared on the front pages of not only the Daily News, but also newspapers around the world. As for Wijemuni, he dabbled in politics, became an astrologer and was arrested again in 2018 for predicting an attack on President Maithripala Sirisena.

Vidanagama’s photograph became the definitive image of the attack. I treasure a copy given to me by the photographer as a piece of journalistic excellence.

As many as four journalists tasked with covering the All Progressives Congress presidential primary have lost their phones and cameras to suspected thieves and pickpockets in Eagle Square in Abuja.

While some of the thugs disguised themselves as party supporters to carry out the deed, others ambushed and charged their victims outside the convention venue.

The incident occurred on Tuesday, the same day security officers fired tear gas canisters to disperse journalists on duty.

PUNCH Metro learned that the editor of Weekly MP3, McDonald Azuju, was one of the victims.

Azuju was allegedly assaulted and robbed of his phone as he waited in one of the long lines outside the convention grounds.

He said: “It is unimaginable that I could come from Lagos to lose my phone to petty thieves in Abuja. Although a DPO assured me that he would help get it back. But I doubt it. My only consolation is not to let the culprit escape unpunished.

The teenager who picked up the phone reportedly said he threw it at a member of his union, whom he could not remember.

Besides Azuju, a foreign journalist was also assaulted while on duty at the convention.

He reportedly lost his bag in the middle of a stampede when police fired tear gas to control the crowd.

According to him, the bag contained his personal effects, including a digital camera and an iPad.

Our correspondent has learned that security agents arrested three suspected phone thieves after attacking another journalist.

The well-dressed boys, who joined the queues of delegates, would have taken advantage of the commotion at the door of the Place de l’Aigle to snatch the handset from the journalist’s pocket.

The reporter sounded the alarm, which caught the attention of security guards who rushed to the scene.

After the suspects were searched, the missing phone was not found on them.

However, an officer, who saw the assailants throw something under a stationary security vehicle, recovered the phone from where it was hidden.

A correspondent with daily asset, Adams Samuel, who has just been released from hospital, said he was hit by a car as he fled from robbers armed with machetes.

He said, “I left the APC office to cover the convention at Eagle Square. When I got off, I couldn’t find my way. So I went to Lagos House to meet some of my colleagues who were already there. That was when the thugs surrounded me. I didn’t even know they were close.

“As I was trying to quickly put my phone in my pocket, they pounced on me with machetes. So, I did a mental calculation and concluded that my best option was to cross the main road with vehicles in both lanes.

Samuel, as he tried to outrun the attackers, was hit by a car, as the gang swooped down on him and took away his phone and other valuables.

Supporters reportedly took him to hospital.

“I woke up in Asokoro hospital and kept wondering how I got there. My camera got smashed and they took my phone. cost 250,000 naira I don’t even know how to go about getting another one,” he lamented.

Federal Capital Territory Police public relations officer Josephine Adeh did not respond to her calls, which rang out.

She had also not yet responded to a text message from our correspondent at the time of going to press.

The APC convention is the second major political campaign where journalists would be exposed to police brutality and theft this year.

Police had previously arrested 10 suspected pickpockets at a special convention organized by the People’s Democratic Party at the National Stadium on May 28.

The Nikon Z 800mm f/6.3 VR S is a professional-grade super telephoto lens with powerful reach and an impressive set of high-end features. There’s no denying that super telephoto lenses tend to be big and heavy. However, thanks in part to the inclusion of a Phase Fresnel element, the Z 800mm certainly isn’t massive and, at 2,385g, you don’t need to be a bodybuilder to tackle the shotgun. raised hand. In comparison, the Nikon Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S (opens in a new tab) and Sigma 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM (opens in a new tab) are both significantly heavier, weighing 2,950g and 2,860g respectively.

Features

To go up: Nikon Z
Full frame: Yes
Autofocus: Yes
Stabilization: Yes
Lens construction: 22 elements in 14 groups
Angle of view: 3.17 degrees
Diaphragm blades: 9
Minimum opening: f/32
Minimum focus distance: 5m
Maximum magnification ratio: 0.16x
Filter size: Rear, 46mm insert
Dimensions: 140x385mm
Lester: 2.385g

Main characteristics

There is 800mm of key feature in this lens. The monster super-telephoto reach is especially great for bird photography, as well as action, sports, wildlife, and just about anytime you can’t get as close to the subject as you want. It can even be useful for landscape photography, when you want to compress perspective for creative effect.

The slightly narrower aperture and use of a Phase Fresnel element means this lens is only half the weight of Nikon’s latest 800mm F-mount lens. (Image credit: Matthew Richards)

While this is undeniably a big and heavy lens, it is relatively compact and light for an 800mm lens. The Phase Fresnel element helps improve image quality while allowing for reduced design, and it’s joined in a high-quality optical path by three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) elements and one SR (Short-wavelength Refractive). The combination aims for negligible chromatic aberration across the entire image frame. Nano Crystal Coat is applied to minimize ghosting and flare, and the front element has a moisture/grease repellent fluorine coating.

The fast and virtually silent autofocus system is based on two linear stepper motors, while voice coil motors power the 5-stop VR (vibration reduction) optical system. Efficiency is increased to 5.5 stops in Synchro VR mode, which pairs with the built-in stabilization of full-frame Nikon Z cameras.

A lockable tray towards the rear end of the lens allows the use of 46mm drop-in filters. (Image credit: Matthew Richards)

The lens comes with a 46mm filter slot and is compatible with Nikon’s Z-series 1.4x and 2.0x teleconverters. (opens in a new tab)if you feel like even 800mm doesn’t quite cover the distance.

Build and manipulate

Build quality is of a perfectly professional standard, with a sturdy, solid and largely weather-sealed construction. As you’d expect, the lens comes with a tripod (opens in a new tab)/monopod (opens in a new tab) mounting ring and strap tabs. There’s also a security-conscious Kensington lock. Included accessories include a lockable hood, padded strap and a high quality padded back sling soft case.

As with the build quality, the handling is entirely professional grade. The customizable manual focus ring works with smooth precision and there are plenty of built-in controls. On the back there’s an A/M focus mode switch, an autofocus range limiter that can lock the short end between 5 and 10m, a customizable L-Fn button, and a Memory setting button to store a custom focus distance.

Further along, there’s a secondary customizable control ring which can be assigned values ​​such as ISO, exposure compensation and aperture. The last of these works well for continuous aperture control during video capture, at which the lens excels with minimal focus breathing. Then there’s a row of four L-Fn 2 buttons, located at 90-degree intervals around the lens barrel, ideal for on/hold autofocus functions.
