*UPDATE* I think we can file these images under the “fake” category without any doubt. Rumors.camera (via PetaPixel) has uncovered where the photos on the LCD screen of the camera came from.
It looks like Unsplash strikes again as both images on the rear of the camera come from the site. You can see each image below as well as on Unsplash here and here.
Shot with Canon Rebel T6
Shot with Panasonic DMC-GX85
You’ll also notice on the wing of the plane that a KLM logo is easily visible and no manufacturer would put someone else’s logo in a promotional shot. The image is also shot on a Panasonic DMC-GX85.
It the future, it looks like I will have to dig a little deeper before I post leaked images from new sources. This is no slight to Photo Rumors or anyone else that believed or wanted to believe that these photos were real. It is the best faked image we may have ever seen.
Thanks to all the sleuths out there who did the dirty work in figuring all of this out.
Irvine, California, January 15th, 2018 – Aurora Aperture Inc., a Southern California company specialized in photography filters, today has introduced the world’s first variable graduated neutral density (GND) filter family, the Aurora PowerGXND.
The PowerGXND family is an hard transition GND filter with a continuous range up to 5 stops (ND 0 – 1.5). GND filters are widely used in photography and videography for balancing a high contrast scene for proper exposure.
“The Aurora PowerGXND family is the world’s first variable GND filter,” said Jeff Chen, founder and CEO of Aurora Aperture Inc. “offering a wide range of light balancing capability for both photographers and videographers. Until now users need to carry multiple fixed stop GND filters with light reduction values of one, two, and three stop with no fractional stop value. With our variable GND filters, all you need is one filter and just rotate the filter until you see the desired result, it is truly that easy.”
