For the photo enthusiast, the Mate 9 offers a ton of control from manual mode to a synthesized depth of field effect powered by Leica’s software and lenses. You get to the aperture adjustment feature by tapping the little aperture icon at the top of the screen.

You can simulate an aperture range from f/0.95 to f/16. It works very much in the same manner as the portrait mode for the dual lens iPhone 7 Plus, but the f/0.95 simulation allows you to blur the background even more when using the Mate 9.

Dozens of art and architecture journalists descended on a construction site on Manhattan’s far west side yesterday—in the middle of the chaotic building frenzy that is NYC’s Hudson Yards—for a first glimpse of an ambitious and costly new addition to the city’s arts and culture scene.

The Shed, formerly known as Culture Shed and currently slated to open in Spring 2019, is described as “a multi-arts center designed to commission, produce, and present all types of performing arts, visual arts, and popular culture.” It consists of an eight-level “base building” that has two levels of gallery space, a versatile theater, a rehearsal space, a creative lab for artists, and a sky-lit event space. There is also a mobile steel outer shell that can roll out over a sprawling plaza making it a flexible indoor/outdoor event space.

Art history just got a lot more accessible. Students, professors, and researchers will soon be able to access some 25 million images of art, photographs, and previously unpublished art historical documents from 14 art institutions worldwide. The partnership aims to digitize and make available 7 million images by 2020.

The new database, organized by the PHAROS Art Research Consortium, has been spearheaded by the Frick Collection in New York and includes gems from the Courtauld Institute (London), Fondazione Federico Zeri (Bologna), Getty Research Institute (Los Angeles), Institut national d’histoire de l’art (Paris), Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz, National Gallery of Art (Washington, D.C.) and the Yale Center For British Art (New Haven), among others.

Whereas researchers previously needed to get on a plane to sift through the photo archives of these far-flung institutions, they will soon be able to access them all online for free. At present, they can search through more than 60,000 artworks and nearly 100,000 images. PHAROS plans to add more archives and participating institutions in the future.

Beyond its foldable design (more on that below), the Mavic Pro boasts a ½.3-inch CMOS sensor with a native ISO of 100-3200 for video and 100-1600 for stills. It can record 4K (4096 x 2160) at 24p or 30p video at 3840 x 2160. For faster moving subjects you can bump frame rates to 96p when shooting in full HD or up to 120p when shooting at 1280 x 720 resolution.

The camera sports a 28mm f/2.2 equivalent lens and sits on a 3-axis gimbal. The Mavic can snap 12-megapixel RAW still images in the DNG format. You’ll have some basic control over exposure settings through the DJI Go app (iOS and Android).

Phase One is planning to ship a novel new medium format camera back in August. The IQ3 100MP Achromatic uses a new 101-megapixel CMOS sensor design (53.4 x 40.1) without a Bayer color filter so it captures images exclusively in black-and-white.

It also delivers the highest sensitivity of any Phase back to date at ISO 51,200.
