19 Aug

Yongnuo has announced its new YN35mm F1.4C DF UWM, a second-generation full-frame lens for Canon’s EF mount.

This new lens features the same optical construction (eleven elements in nine groups with a seven-blade aperture diaphragm) and outward appearance Yongnuo’s original YN35mm F1.4 MC lens. What’s new is the addition of an Ultrasonic Wave Motor (UWM).

Yongnuo hasn’t listed the price of the lens, which is set to ship in Q4 2019, but its predecessor currently retails for $ 378 (Adorama, B&H). It’s likely this new lens would replace the older model for roughly the same price.

Update (August 19, 2019): Updated article to clarify the Micro USB port was present on the first version of Yongnuo’s 35mm F1.4 lens as well.

Motor Magnificence: 11 New Supercar Joyrides for the Super Rich

23 Aug

[ By SA Rogers in Technology & Vehicles & Mods. ]

sin 5

Mere fantasy rides for most of us, the world’s most luxurious high-performance supercars take all the elements that make driving a vehicle pleasurable and ramp them up about 10 levels, from advanced surround-sound to wildly powerful engines. A number of opulent luxury automobile creations debuted this August at car shows around the world, including limited editions, custom-painted showcases and other elite motor vehicles accessible only to the rich and famous.

Agera RS by Koenigsegg

Billed as the world’s first ‘megacar,’ the Koenigsegg Agera RS (with a single, one-of-a-kind ‘XS’ version located in the United States) is set to become one of the most powerful street-legal production cars on American roads and features a lightweight removable hardtop that stows away under the front hood. It features a 5-liter twin turbocharged V8 engine and a CIMA 7-speed paddle-shift transmission and weighs just 3075 pounds.

McLaren 570GT MSO Concept

The 570GT MSO concept by McLaren aims to be the “ultimate sports car experience that’s perfect for daily use, longer journeys and weekends away,” with a rear-opening glass hatch, panoramic roof and leather-trimmed touring deck. Its exhaust system is made from titanium to be 30% lighter than a standard stainless steel system and for a richer tone, with visible heat shields that change color as the system heats and cools. An integrated 12-speaker surround-sound system provides a top-of-the-line aural experience while driving.

McLaren 650s Spider

A convertible version of the luxury automaker’s 650s is an open-top super car that reaches 62mph in 3 seconds and a top speed of 204 miles per gallon, all while getting 24.2 miles to the gallon. Door blades direct air to the front splitter to enhance cornering grip and balance. The convertible handles and rides just like the coupe version of the 650s, and its retractible hard top and roof mechanism can automatically raise or lower in less than 17 seconds.

Pagani Huayra BC

The lightest supercar yet to be built weighs in at 2,685 pounds ( a full thousand pounds lighter than the Porsche 918) thanks to its carbon fiber and titanium construction. The $ 2.6 million dollar Pagani Huayra features 789 horsepower and 811 lb-ft of torque with 75 millisecond shifts. A large back wing, front splitter and new body panels update the latest Huayra from previous versions; only 20 will ever be produced.

Car-Free Paris: French Capital Bans Motor Vehicles for 1 Day

31 Aug

[ By WebUrbanist in Culture & History & Travel. ]

car free paris

For a single day next month, locals and visitors will be able to experience Paris without motorized traffic, giving the city over to pedestrians and bikers. Free of traffic congestion, noise pollution and vehicle emissions, the Day Without Cars will transform the physical and auditory landscape, enabling views and revealing ambient sounds ordinarily drowned out by the urban cacophony on September 27th.

car free parks pedestrians

Timed to coincide with a United Nations climate conference and European Mobility Week, the move is partially a display of possibilities for car-free cities as well as a statement about the environment. The 1st through 7th, 10th and 11th arrondissements (city sections) will all participate; monuments and gathering spaces such as the Champs Élysées, the Bastille, and the Eiffel Tower are included as well.

car free city

Other metropolitan areas around the world including Montreal, Bogota, Mexico City and Ho Chi Minh City are following France’s lead and instituting similar vehicular restrictions to various degrees. In such cities, photographers will be able to stand in the streets, capturing unique shots of urban architecture and infrastructure without the risk of being run over. Facing increased traffic, cities like London and Los Angeles are already considering ways in which to permanently reduce congestion and give over areas to mass transit, cyclists and pedestrians.

desert city from scratch

Some cities have longer-term visions for a car-free future as well. In China, plans and budgets have been established for a car-free city built from scratch. In Abu Dhabi, a car-free, self-sufficient city is also in the works, though some question its feasibility. Meanwhile, Hamburg has firmly committed to a 20-year plan to eliminate cars, keeping routes for public transportation and emergency vehicles but otherwise handing city streets over to paths and trails for walkers and bikers.
