Meyer Optik Görlitz is Back and They Are Being Transparent

Meyer Optik Görlitz is back thanks to OPC Optics and they hope to not make the same mistakes as the company that originally tried to revive the brand. So far they have released two press releases, which you can read below, but the second one is probably the most interesting since it includes:

Somnium and Nocturnus ranges for the time being. In line with comments in the past on various online platforms, forums etc., the current Meyer Optik staff also soon became aware that internally the Somnium was actually a modified Russian lens and the Nocturnus was a modified Chinese lens.

It looks like two of Meyer Optik Görlitz more expensive lenses were largely a Russian and Chinese design. Meyer will discontinue these lenses for now and will not continue many of their former practices like crowdfunding. The first lenses manufactured entirely in Germany from Meyer Optik should start to ship around the end of 2019 after they finish the acquisition. There is also news about warranty support and some existing stock that is left.

As part of the takeover of the brand, OPC Optics also acquired the previous manufacturer’s stock of finished goods. These lenses have been checked by OPC and will be for sale at greatly reduced prices, for as long as stocks last. OPC Optics will, of course, honor guarantees and warranties for 2 years from the date of purchase. Any subsequent production of these lens designs or their components is not envisaged in the current development plan.

You can read the full press releases below. Read More »

The Fuji Guys released their Fujifilm X-T30 Video Features Compared video. It’s similar to the last focus on video video, but it’s more of a direct comparison with the Fujifilm X-T3.

DPRTV: Should Photography Dump Histograms and Move to Waveforms Like Videography?

Fujifilm has moved into videography in a big way and they were the first camera manufacturer to offer major new features via Firmware update so should they consider giving us access to waveforms while shooting photos? I kind of like the idea, but have only used waveforms in Final Cut Pro for editing. This might be easier for a company like Panasonic to add since they already have most of the code needed to implement the feature, but I could easily see Fujifilm beating them to the punch on this one.

The suggestion by the guys at DPRTV is probably the most high profile suggestion yet that manufacturers dump histograms for waveform, but will they listen? I doubt a company like Sony will take on the task, but I can see Fujifilm and Panasonic adding it as an option. DPRTV only gives a cursory explanation of waveforms above so I have included some better explanations of the feature below. So what do you think? Should we bring the world of Photography and Videography closer together?
