Nikon D850 Video

Hasselblad X1D-50c Firmware release 1.17.2

This update adds two important features that extend the shooting envelope of the camera: resizable autofocus points, and an electronic shutter function.
By popular demand, three sizes may now be selected offering 35, 63 or 117 points by holding down the AF/MF button and pressing the display [] button to cycle through them. The focus point may be reset to center easily by pressing the X button.Placeholder image © Stefan Isaksson.The electronic shutter allows for shutter speeds up to 1/10,000s and is silent, allowing use of the X1D-50c under conditions that require absolute discretion or completely zero vibration. It allows the production of images with extremely high quality in situations that might have previously been challenging – both when silence is needed such as during live performances, or when working handheld in extremely low light conditions.Placeholder image © Stefan Isaksson.Furthermore, this opens up the possibility to produce adapters for an extended range of lenses beyond the already wide range of native Hasselblad XCD and HC offerings should you have an extremely specific requirement.

Inexpensive Filter for the Upcoming Solar Eclipse

Filter in package and assembled
No matter where you are in relation to the path of totality, or the percent of totality you will witness, a solar eclipse in your neighborhood is an exciting event for photographers.  Filters designed for shooting directly into the sun can run anywhere from $75 to $200 or more.  Kind of a lot of money for the rare eclipsal occurence.  
Filter on end of 70-200/2.8
Enter the Universal Lens Filter made by Daystar Instruments. The filter portion of this little fold-it-yourself over-the-lens cap is the same film that is featured on the eclipse viewing glasses that are being distributed for free in many outlets and online. 
While this does not qualify as "quality optics," it will allow the casual shooter to get shots of whatever portion of the eclipse in view.  A great deal at $12.95 each through B&H.  The resulting image did reveal a sunspot visible in the shot. 
Available here: Daystar filters
