September 30, 2016  |  by Samy's Camera
It's that time again... It's been a long week; but, you made it. It's Friday, and that means another installment of our #PhotoFriday roundup. We decided to mix it up a bit, and, along with some really cool products, include some sources for visual inspiration. Without further ado:
Double Trouble
Just when you thought you had enough lenses; Olympus drops two new ones. We know there is no such thing as having enough lenses. Say hello to the M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-100mm f/4 IS PRO Lens: [caption id="attachment_3228" align="aligncenter" width="600"]olympuslens-resize-1 Credit: Ralph Elliott Starkweather[/caption] In a class by itself, this lens is the only professional high magnification zoom to cover a 35mm equivalent 24-200mm focal range all on its own. This Micro Four Thirds lens features premium construction and superior glass to provide spectacular optical performance. Pre-Order here. and, the M.Zuiko Digital ED 30mm f/3.5 Macro Lens: [caption id="attachment_3229" align="aligncenter" width="600"]olympuslens-resize2 Credit: Ralph Elliot Starkweather[/caption] With this Macro Lens, you’ll have the imaging power to capture exquisite detail with exceptional clarity. Thanks to the best-in-class maximum magnification of 2.5x (35mm equivalent) both novice and pro photographers can easily capture the details of a delicate flower or the ornate metalwork on a piece of jewelry — anything that’s small— and create distinctive, impactful images. Pre-Order here.
A 360 Vision
Have you seen those cool 360 videos on Facebook? Well, if you've been wondering just how you can have the ability to shoot your very own immersive videos, you should get to know the Ricoh Theta S 360 Degree Spherical Panorama Digital Camera. Since its launch last year as the world's first image input device, the RICOH THETA has opened a new world of imaging possibilities. Users can shoot game changing new spherical images at any time, capturing more than they ever imagined. In response to popular demand, the new model enables Wi-Fi transfer that is almost twice as fast as the previous model as well as spherical video capture, all with the same small, lightweight and easy-to-carry design as before.

Get Creative with Lomography 
Lomography, the creators of those cool looking instant cameras, recently debuted the latest addition to their product line, The Lomo'Instant Automat Camera, on Kickstarter. With just 4 days remaining, the company crushed their original $100,000 funding goal. Currently, over $4,900 backers have pledged over $787,000. While this camera won't be available for a few months, we happen to carry a bunch of Lomography products to satisfy your instant camera needs. For instance, check out Lomography's Sanremo Instant Camera + 3 Lenses.

Compact. Powerful. Fast.
I mean...what else would you ask for in a camera? [caption id="attachment_3231" align="aligncenter" width="404"]screen-shot-2016-09-30-at-12-04-45-pm Credit: Canon[/caption] Coming soon, the Canon EOS M5 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 15-45mm Lens features the brilliant image quality you can expect from the EOS line of cameras, in a lightweight, portable design with fast autofocus and processing to help make sure you don't miss that unforgettable shot.

Pre-Order here. BONUS ITEMS! In case you need some visual inspiration, we've got two suggestions:
Larry Clark Show at UTA Artist Space
If you are in the Los Angeles area, head over to Boyle Heights and check out the newly launched UTA Artist Space. Exhibiting now is the work of KIDS director, Larry Clark. [caption id="attachment_3232" align="aligncenter" width="543"]screen-shot-2016-09-30-at-12-11-51-pm Untitled, 1963 (Larry Clark)[/caption] According to ArtNews: "The first show will be of work by Larry Clark, marking his first show in Los Angeles since his solo exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in 2000. It opens September 17, and will feature 50 works, and include screenings of Clark’s 1968 film Tulsa."\ Exhibit ends Oct 29th.
This documentary is worth seeking out. As best stated by IndieWire: "Kirsten Johnson opens “Cameraperson” with a note describing the project as “my memoir,” but it’s safe to say there’s never been a memoir quite like this one. Cobbling together footage from her 25 years of experience as a documentary cinematographer, “Cameraperson” offers a freewheeling overview of the people and places Johnson has captured over the course of a diverse career. More than that, the two dozen projects showcased here alongside original footage confront the process of creation. This is a collage-like guide to a life of looking." Happy #PhotoFriday everyone!
