If you visit the Nikon stand at The photography fair (opens in a new tab) (B600) you will find all the latest gorgeous gear and maybe even the lowdown on the recently announced Z17-28mm f/2.8 (opens in a new tab). But once you’ve salivated on the best nikon cameras (opens in a new tab) and caught up in a few interviews with pro photographers, be sure to check out some of the coolest and wackiest Nikon cameras in Big N history.

These curious gems include a Nikon destined for outer space, a gold-plated FA and the world’s first underwater SLR. Each camera is safely enclosed in a plexiglass display case, safe from prying hands, but still allowing a 360 degree view. Here are some of our favourites…

Nikon and NASA

NASA’s various space missions are responsible for some of the most famous photographs in human history and Nikon’s relationship with the US government space agency dates back to 1971 (opens in a new tab)when the Nikon Photomic FTN accompanied the crew of Apollo 15. This modified Nikon F was the first in a long line of specialized space cameras, including the modified Nikon F3 ‘Big Camera’ on display at the Photography Show 2022 The rather beefy 1981 SLR might seem like a lot to handle, but it was used for its relative portability compared to NASA’s larger 70mm format cameras.

Nikonos RS – underwater DSLR

The Nikonos RS was arguably a camera ahead of its time. It was released in 1992, making it the world’s first dedicated underwater SLR camera. Its toy aesthetic might not look particularly slick, but its large, protruding controls were designed to be manipulated underwater. That’s right, the Nikonos RS could work up to 100m without underwater housing.

Optoelectronics’ biggest product category is set to suffer its first sales decline in 13 years due to the smartphone slump, weak growth of cameras in handsets and a weak global economy, according to a update report

For most of the past two decades, the strong growth of CMOS image sensors has propelled this product category to the top of the optoelectronics market, in terms of sales volume, generating more than 40% of revenue. total annual opto-semiconductor. In 2022, however, the CMOS image sensor market category is on track to experience its first decline in 13 years with sales expected to fall 7% to $18.6 billion and unit shipments expected to fall. drop 11% to 6.1 billion worldwide, according to IC Insights. McClean Report Service August 3rd Quarter Update (Figure 1).

Figure 1

The forecast decline for 2022 in CMOS image sensors comes after two years of weak sales growth in 2020 (+4%) and 2021 (+5%). This year’s sales decline reflects overall weakness in consumer smartphones and laptops equipped with digital cameras for video conferencing following an increase in demand for internet connections and online conferencing capabilities during the virus pandemic Covid-19. The Q3 Update forecast shows a modest recovery for CMOS image sensors next year, with market revenue growing 4% to $19.3 billion, then 13% in 2024 to reach a new record of $21.7 billion.

Deteriorating global economic conditions

In addition to weak demand for consumer mobile phones and laptops, CMOS image sensors have been negatively impacted by deteriorating global economic conditions resulting from high inflation and soaring energy costs. caused by the Russian war in Ukraine as well as US trade bans on China, recent Covid-19 virus lockdowns in Chinese manufacturing hubs, and slowing growth in the number of cameras packed into new smartphones. Some high-end smartphone models pack five or more cameras, but the average for most handsets has remained at three (one on the front, facing the user for “selfie” photos and two main cameras at the back of the phones). IC Insights third-quarter update report says some officials in China have described image sensor market conditions as a “perfect storm,” combining a slowdown in consumer smartphone shipments from mid of range and an unforeseen break in the increase in the number of integrated cameras designed in new handsets. .

CMOS image sensor market leader Sony, which accounted for approximately 43% of CMOS image sensor sales worldwide in 2021, reported a 12.4% sequential decline in image sensor dollar revenue (-2% in Japanese yen) during the company’s fiscal first quarter, ended June 2022. During the first half of the 2022 calendar, Sony struggled to meet image resolution requirements for camera phones and its sales of CMOS image sensors to major Chinese system makers have been curtailed by U.S. trade bans. Sony still expects excess phone and image sensor inventory to be reduced by early 2023 and market conditions to “normalize” in the second half of its current fiscal year (ending March next).

Nearly two-thirds of CMOS image sensors are used in mobile phones, and that share is expected to fall to around 45% by 2026, according to The McClean Report 3Q Update. A slow but steady recovery in CMOS image sensors is expected to be driven by a new purchase cycle of smartphone upgrades and more integrated cameras being added in other systems, especially for automotive automation capabilities, medical applications and intelligent security networks. The 3Q update shows that sales of CMOS image sensors grow at a CAGR of 6.0% from 2021 to 2026 to reach $26.9 billion in the last forecast year. CMOS image sensor shipments are expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.9% between 2021 and 2026, to reach 9.6 million units.

ANN ARBOR – The man arrested for planting cameras in the bathrooms of seven local businesses and a park is free on bail.

A $100,000 bond was posted for Erric Morton on Friday and he was released. It was not immediately clear if he personally provided the funds or if someone posted bond on his behalf, Ann Arbor police said.

As a repeat offender who had just completed his parole for similar crimes dating back to 2015, there are concerns that he will continue to victimize unsuspecting individuals until his next court appearance.

“As a police department, we are obviously concerned that this will continue and we want to prevent further victimizations,” said Lt. Bonnie Theil of the Ann Arbor police. “Unfortunately, a tether was not issued in this case.”

Theil said the conditions of Morton’s bail are not to use computers or computer equipment and not to violate any law. She is also prohibited from entering the Briarwood Mall, she said.

Morton, 35, was arrested on September 7 on 12 counts, including capturing an image of a naked person, possession of child sexual abuse material and using a computer to commit a crime.

The Michigan State Police’s Cybercrime Unit is assisting the AAPD with digital forensics in the investigation, analyzing hundreds of videos captured in public restrooms between January 27 and July 22.

Morton planted cameras in the following locations:

  • altar state

  • Bath and body care

  • Hampton Inn and Wyndham Garden

  • Cafe Vertex (University S)

  • Starbucks (Plymouth Road)

  • Sweetwater Cafe (Plymouth Road)

  • Gallup Park

Theil said the secret cameras used by Morton came in many forms, including cameras disguised as USB outlets and, in at least one case, a pen camera attached under a sink.

“He wasn’t putting them in stalls,” Theil said. “He was putting them in an open, family-style toilet. And he would come back later and get them back.

Some videos he captured included children, and police said Morton distributed the content online.

“We view this as extremely heinous and just an awful violation and we want to get it off the streets,” Theil said. “Unfortunately, we are seeing a lot of recidivism in sexual deviance crimes.”

The AAPD has created a reporting site for people who think they were filmed by Morton. The department is also actively working to contact the people they identify in the footage.

A d

Regarding best practices when using public restrooms, Theil urges individuals to be vigilant at all times and to report anything strange.

“Be aware of your surroundings and look around you,” she said. “If you see anything that looks out of place, alert management immediately so they can collect it and have a look. And call the police.

Jhe tension in the air was palpable as the group of television producers eagerly waited to see what would happen when the Siberian tiger slipped into the bear cave. It was a groundbreaking moment in wildlife documentary making, and a moment that will be seen by millions of people who tune in. Frozen Planet II.

It took three years of perseverance and trial-and-error filming in Russian forests using remote cameras to get the footage of tigers entering bear caves, said Elizabeth White – who worked on the original frozen planet and produced the award-winning film Episode “Iguanas vs. Snakes” of Planet Earth II.

The tiger footage captured a moment so unique it even surprised David Attenborough. White told the Observer that after hearing reports of tigers occasionally snagging hibernating bears, filming it was “a labor of love” and “like finding needles in a haystack”.

“We completely failed the first year, so we changed our location in season two and got some nice shots – but not much substance. Then a local photographer told us our cameras were too big – the tigers We looked at the technology he was using, and sure enough, the tigers were detecting the bigger cameras.

By then, “the technology had moved on,” White said, “and we were able to get a smaller camera that had a high enough resolution, and we were able to get images of tigers entering caves.”

She said Attenborough was “particularly impressed” by these images of tigers and leopards. “We filmed both species using the same trails in the same forest, which he was fascinated to see,” she said.

He was also “very excited” by other scenes in the six-part series, including killer whales creating waves to wash seals off the pack ice, the film of an arctic bumblebee captured in its dark snow trough at the using a probe camera and an avalanche in the Canadian Rockies filmed, for the first time according to White, by a racing drone – a brand new tiny drone with a 360-degree camera and controlled by a helmet and goggles .

“We have a team of young guys who normally launch these drones up into the mountains to chase snowboarders, and they were ready to try and capture avalanches,” she said. “It’s one of the most exciting sequences I’ve ever seen of a landscape.”

Attenborough, 96, is renowned for his interest in new technology and “is very excited about drones,” White said. “It was all new and exciting for him. He loves stories he’s never heard before, and it’s unusual to find one because he’s been everywhere and seen it all.

Technology has transformed documentary filmmaking since the first frozen planet, she says. “When we filmed the original series about 11 or 12 years ago, everything was sort of pre-digital; part of it was still shot on tape. The technological advances of the last 10 years have been enormous.

She said remote cameras and drones allow natural history teams to get “insight into new behaviors and [have] the ability to film in landscapes where you could never get a helicopter.

“In the Chinese mountains, we place small cameras above the snow line to capture images of wild pandas in winter. We’ve got some lovely footage of a male panda coming in, and he’s sticking his bottom up and rubbing it against a tree: looks like he’s twerking or something.

“Obviously you would never get that normally – you couldn’t put a cameraman in hiding for all the months it took to capture him.”

Other highlights include rare footage of male and female adolescent polar bears playing together on the ice.

Advances in cameras, including “weatherproof, cold-ready cameras you can place on the side of glaciers to help document climate change,” are giving viewers new insights into the crisis facing our planet. , she added.

The production crew and crew faced many challenges during the four years of filming frozen planet II, to make polar bear-proof cameras by running cables through scaffolding poles to try to make tiny cameras indestructible to New Zealand’s alpine kea parrots who separated them (“one completely trashed one of our cameras,” White said).

Other trials included cameramen having to spend 10 days in a row acclimatizing on an ice cap in Peru to change camera batteries, having to keep batteries warm under their clothes and camping on ice floes in Antarctica. while trying to stop melting. to the icy seas below.

But the effort is likely to be rewarded by large audiences and help raise awareness of climate change and our changing world, as other BBC nature documentaries have done over the years.

Friends of the Earth policy chief Mike Childs said: ‘The BBC’s fantastic natural history programs have been bringing the wonders of our planet to our homes for decades and allowing us to temporarily escape to places magic of which we often know nothing or almost nothing. .

“Importantly, they not only helped raise awareness of the beauty and wonder of our natural world, but also alerted us to its fragility and the myriad threats it faces.”

Childs pointed out: “The raw and heartbreaking images of Blue Planet II not only highlighted the dangers of plastic pollution, but also sparked a huge public outcry that forced government and business to take the issue much more seriously and act on unnecessary plastic.

Frozen Planet airs Sunday, September 11 at 8 p.m. on BBC One.

BSI’s cameras provide free feeds to NASCAR Drive digital products

NASCAR will make history this weekend. For the first time, every car in the field of a NASCAR race will be equipped with a live on-board camera.

It will happen this Sunday at the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway, a NASCAR Cup Series Playoff race that will air on USA Network starting at 3 p.m. ET.

“People tune into a race and want to see what the rider is going through,” says Steve Stum, Vice President, Operations and Technical Production, NASCAR. “What does the driver see?” It’s very important for our sport – and for all races – to see that.

While all of these streams are available to NBC Sports for use in live streaming, this effort is designed largely for NASCAR’s suite of digital products. Each of the dash cam feeds will be available to stream live on NASCAR Drive, NASCAR’s live race day hub at NASCAR.com and the NASCAR mobile app. These video streams are transmitted to NASCAR Drive via Amazon Web Services (AWS).

“Our goal is to provide an immersive experience for the most passionate fans of all sports, wherever they are,” Tim Clark, SVP/Digital Director, NASCAR, said Thursday morning in an official statement. “We know the important role second screens play in the overall viewing experience. So providing live video from inside each car and alongside standings, performance data, pit stats, live betting odds, and more is something we are passionate about.

NASCAR worked with its long-time in-car camera technology partner, BSI (Broadcast Sports International, owned by NEP Broadcast Services), and NASCAR’s in-house competition team (led by SVP, Innovation and Race Development, John Probst) to make this feat possible. It included an upgrade to the on-board camera array to 1080p and ensured that the design of NASCAR’s new Next Gen car, which debuted at the start of the 2022 season, accommodated a standard camera mount near the rearview mirror.

“We redesigned the car hub so we could transmit on two different frequencies depending on where the camera was pointing,” says Stum, a NASCAR broadcast veteran of more than two decades. “Normal broadcast cameras operate in the 1.4 GHz range, and these new webcams operate in the 7 GHz spectrum. So we had to work to find the spectrum and do some testing and make sure it would work in the higher spectrum.

NASCAR worked with longtime dash cam partner Broadcast Sports International to install the cameras in each car and upgrade the overall system to 1080p.

He notes that the system has been tested at NASCAR races for most of the season and heading into the weekend in Kansas City, the crew feels confident about it.

On-board cameras have been a part of NASCAR broadcasting since the late 1970s. For many years, cameras in every car in the race were a focus for NASCAR and its broadcast partners.

On February 18, 1979, CBS broadcast the entire Daytona 500 live for the first time. In this show, a camera, weighing nearly 50 pounds, was installed inside Benny Parsons’ car. In 1981, cars driven by Terry Labonte and Richard Childress were equipped with cameras that added the ability to pan and tilt via remote control.

Dashcams had their party in 1983 when Cale Yarborough won the Daytona 500 with another new model of dashcam in his car. The camera produced an unprecedented view of his celebration from the front dashboard.

In 1986, CBS garnered national acclaim by winning a Sports Emmy for its use of the dash cam on the Daytona 500. These days, NASCAR and BSI are deploying a robust dash cam system that has up to four cameras, including in the holes cut into the front and rear bumpers.

Feeds from all on-board cameras will be available for live streaming on NASCAR Drive, NASCAR’s race day live hub on NASCAR.com and the NASCAR mobile app.

For those working behind the scenes at NBC and Fox, this weekend marks a historic milestone in live stock car racing coverage.

“I have practiced this sport for a long time and [Fox Sports SVP, Field Operations,] Mike Davis and I’ve been talking about this for about 15 years: why isn’t there a camera in every car? said Stum. “In projects like this, you come up with ideas and wait for technology to catch up with you. I think we finally had the opportunity to have the vision and put the package together. Cameras in every car: that’s going to be great.

Race two of the NASCAR Playoffs Round of 16 airs this Sunday at 3 p.m. ET on USA Network.

TOKYO, Sept 6 (Reuters) – Japanese prosecutors on Tuesday re-arrested a former Tokyo 2020 board member embroiled in a bribery scandal surrounding the Olympics, over allegations he received bribes -wine from a corporate sponsor, the Nikkei newspaper reported.

The Nikkei reported that publisher Kadokawa Corp (9468.T) paid 70 million yen ($498,000) to a company linked to then-Tokyo 2020 board member Haruyuki Takahashi, who prosecutors say , helped the company be chosen as the sponsor of the Tokyo Olympics. Read more

Prosecutors then arrested two senior Kadokawa officials for alleged corruption and raided his headquarters, news outlets reported.

A Kadokawa official said the company was fact-checking but declined to comment further. Shares of the company were trading down 5% by early afternoon.

Takahashi is already in custody after being arrested last month on suspicion of corruption surrounding the Games. The new arrest means he faces longer detention so prosecutors can question him further. Read more

Reuters reported in 2020 that Takahashi, who was paid millions of dollars to work on Tokyo’s successful bid for the Olympics, said he played a key role in securing the backing of a former broker. in power of the Olympics who was later suspected by French prosecutors of having accepted bribes to help Japan’s bid.

Takahashi told Reuters at the time that his work included lobbying International Olympic Committee member Lamine Diack, whom he gave gifts including digital cameras and a Seiko watch. He said then there was nothing improper about the payments he received or the way he used the money.

Diack, once one of the most powerful people in athletics, was jailed in France in 2020 for corruption. He died last year at the age of 88.
