Wacom's MobileStudio Pro. Even better screen quality than before!
Wacom's new MobileStudio Pro range of lightweight, powerful mobile computers includes touch screens using Wacom’s pen technology and are designed, Wacom suggests, for busy, on-the-go creators of digital content seeking the freedom to take their studio with them, wherever and whenever they go! Featuring the newly-designed Wacom Pro Pen 2, with four times higher pen accuracy and pressure sensitivity than the previous pen, there are two sizes and five computer models to choose from. The three 13.3" models combine mobility with high performance and colour accuracy, featuring an IPS high-brightness panel with 2.5K (WQHD) resolution and displaying 96% of the Adobe(RGB.) colour space. Each comes with 8GB RAM and are priced according to their Solid State Drive (SSD) size –128GB ($2,649), 256GB ($2,999) and 512GB ($3,499). The two 15.6" models deliver a larger work area, 4K resolution and 94% Adobe(RGB) colour space. However, these units also feature beefed up graphics power. There’s a 256GB ($3,499) model with an NVIDIA Quadro M600M graphics card seated with 2GB VRAM, while the 512GB ($4,399) sports an NVIDIA Quadro M1000M card with 4GB VRAM. Bundled with Windows 10, MobileStudio Pro has the power we need to run all of our applications, from Photoshop and Capture One to Word and Chrome. It's a fully fledged computer inside a touch screen and it is such a fun device to use, it will make editing your files a dream. The MobileStudio Pro takes over from the Wacom Companion, but retains similar time-saving productivity features, including ExpressKeys, Touch Ring and buttons on the pen which allow you to quickly and easily set-up one touch short cuts. Also, the optional Wacom Link technology enables users to attach a MobileStudio Pro to any Mac or PC and use it as a standard Cintiq pen display – a great feature for Mac owners who prefer to work on the Mac OS in their studios. MobileStudio Pro will be available from select resellers and the Wacom eStore at buywacom.com.au/
New Leica Store For Sydney
Leica's new store in the QVB Building, Sydney.
Leica Camera has opened its first Australian store in Sydney’s CBD. Located on the second floor of the historic Queen Victoria Building (QVB), the Leica Store will showcase premium photography and nature observation products, host a resell program for Leica products, and offer expert advice from seasoned staff members for image makers of every skill level.
So, why do you need a light meter or a flash meter in these days of digital photography? I don't have a good answer for most photographers who can still safely rely on the histogram in their camera to determine correct exposure. Add in a little exposure bracketing and raw file latitude, and you will be quite okay.
However, there is another level of photographer who likes to measure the light and flash illumination more precisely and Sekonic has now established itself as one of the world's leading meter manufacturers.
