It’s time to get our ultimate guides out of budget lens territory and back into the ultimate territory. So today we are going to do our ultimate lens guide for 2017. If portraits are your thing, and you are starting to think about possibly upgrading your kit while there are holiday deals or maybe at some point in 2018, then this will be a post you should see.
We're lucky to live in an age when learning photography is easier than ever, but normally, educational content tends to focus on specific techniques or ideas. While that's generally fine, sometimes, it's helpful to see the entire creative process from start to finish to understand why different steps were taken and different decisions were made. This helpful video will show you just that.

"much less perspective distortion than a single picture taken from a close distance with a wide angle lens, and much deeper depth of field than a single picture taken with a telecentric lens".I don't think that will work in practice. DOF is a function of aperture and magnification and nothing else. It is the same whether taken as a single shot or combined from many.

BusinessWire: AEye (former US LADAR) introduces iDAR (Intelligent Detection and Ranging) that combines the world’s first agile MOEMS LiDAR, pre-fused with a low-light camera and embedded artificial intelligence - creating software-definable and extensible hardware that can dynamically adapt to real-time demands.
AEye’s iDAR is designed to intelligently prioritize and interrogate co-located pixels (2D) and voxels (3D) within a frame, enabling the system to target and identify objects within a scene 10-20x more effectively than LiDAR-only products. Additionally, iDAR is capable of overlaying 2D images on 3D point clouds for the creation of True Color LiDAR. The introduction of iDAR follows AEye’s September demonstration of the first 360 degree, vehicle-mounted, solid-state LiDAR system with ranges up to 300 meters at high resolution.
“AEye’s unique architecture has allowed us to address many of the fundamental limitations of first generation spinning or raster scanning LiDAR technologies,” said Luis Dussan, AEye founder and CEO. “These first generation systems silo sensors and use rigid asymmetrical data collection that either oversample or undersample information. This dynamic exposes an inherent tradeoff between density and latency in legacy sensors, which restricts or eliminates the ability to do intelligent sensing. For example, while traditional 64 line systems can hit an object once per frame (every 100ms or so), we can, with intelligent sensing, selectively revisit any chosen object twice within 30 microseconds - an improvement of 3000X. This embedded intelligence optimizes data collection, so we can transfer less data while delivering better quality, more relevant content.”
AEye’s iDAR system uses proprietary low-cost, solid-state beam-steering 1550nm MOEMS-based LiDAR, computer vision, and embedded artificial intelligence to enable dynamic control of every co-located pixel and voxel in each frame within rapidly changing scenes.
MIT Technology Review adds: "there’s one point that there is no getting around: AEye’s device only has a 70° field of view, which means that a car would need five or six of the sensors dotted around it for a full 360 degrees. And that raises a killer question: how much will it cost? Dussan won’t commit to a number, but he makes it clear that this is supposed to be a high-end option—not competing with hundred-dollar solid state devices, but challenging high-resolution devices like those made by Velodyne. For a full set of sensors around the car, he says, “if you compare true apples-to-apples, we’re going to be the lowest-cost system around.”
PRNewswire: Ouster emerges from stealth mode and announces the launch of OS1 model LIDAR, and $27 million in Series A funding, led by Cox Enterprises. The 64-channel OS1 Lidar has begun shipping to customers, and is rapidly ramping up commercial-scale production at a price point approximately 85% below that of its competition (Costs $12,000, according to Ouster site).
The company was founded by CEO Angus Pacala, co-founder and former head of engineering of Quanergy, and CTO Mark Frichtl, a prior Quanergy Systems engineer who also spent time at Palantir Technologies, First Solar, and the Apple Special Projects Group. Pacala and Frichtl formed Ouster with the vision to create a high-performance, reliable, and small form factor LIDAR sensor that could be manufactured at a scale and price that would allow autonomous technology to continue its rapid expansion without the cost and manufacturing constraints currently present in the market.
"The company has maintained a low-profile for over two years – staying heads-down and focusing on getting the OS1 ready to ship," noted CEO and co-founder Angus Pacala. "I'm incredibly proud of our team for their hard work to produce the most advanced, practical, and scalable LIDAR sensor on the market, and we're very excited about the impact our product will have in autonomous vehicles and other applications in robotics," Pacala added.
Ouster's Series A funding will primarily be used for the manufacturing and the continued development of its next sensor designs. The company anticipates manufacturing capacity in the tens of thousands of sensors in 2018 based on its current product design, and Ouster's product roadmap supports continually improving resolution, range, and alternative form factors. Additionally, the new capital will support the company's expansion from approximately 40 employees today to 100 employees by summer 2018.

Basler publishes a white paper "Sensor Comparison: Are all IMXs equal?" by Dominik Lappenküper. Some food for thought from the paper:
"The first generation of this new [Pregius] sensor series includes the sensors IMX174 and IMX249. They have a pixel pitch of 5.86 um. In the first generation of the Pregius sensors, a particularly notable feature is the very high saturation capacity of over 32 ke-.
With the second generation of the Pregius series, Sony established a smaller pixel at 3.45 um. Due to the smaller pixels in the sensors of the 2nd generation, their saturation capacity greatly decreases, which results in values that are more typical for the CMOS sensors."
"EMVA1288 standard offers the measured value of the “absolute threshold value for sensitivity”. It states the average number of required photons so that the signal to noise ratio is exactly 1."

As I photograph, I try to get into sort of a "zone," as would a runner, to give my full attention to visually editing the world around me, narrowing down "everything" to a small, select interesting subject, then subsequently creating images. With others being around, I find myself mostly distracted and my concentration often broken. It wasn't unusual for someone else to speak to me right when I was concentrating. I would then have to struggle to get back into the zone. However...
The other day a good friend from out of state was in town. We arranged to meet and get together to go out, wander, explore the rural areas of southeastern Virginia and photograph. Contrary to what I just wrote above, it was a wonderful experience. I realized I now find even more value in photographing with others, especially friends, who are like-minded in interests, values and photographic subjects. There is something to be said about sharing the day with a friend who has common interests, a shared vision and of great talent. I'll call it serendipitous.
Instead of being a distraction, I found the wide-ranging conversation stimulating which actually helped me create images. Sometimes, as we moved through the countryside, I would see things to stop and photograph that he wouldn't. Sometimes the opposite was true. Collaboration, cooperation (and not competition) as well as helpfulness toward each other prevailed so both of us had a successful day quickly became the unspoken attitude. As a bonus, he and I both use Fujifilm X-T2s and our gear was another subject of which we shared conversation.

If you are a solo photographer and haven't gone out in a long time with a like-minded photographic friend, I recommend you do so. I would be interested in your experiences in doing so to find out what you see as the positives and negatives of "group" photography.
Thanks for looking. Enjoy!
