RNI Films is Coming to Capture One (EXCLUSIVE)

If you’re a big fan of the way that Really Nice Images’ RNI Films tends to render photos, then you’ll be really in love with the fact that RNI Films is coming to Capture One Pro. Indeed, one of the only things that I miss about Adobe Lightroom is that I was able to plug in and work with my RNI films presets. But the styles are on their way for Capture One, but they’re still in development for the most part.

So in preparation, I’ve been speaking with Oliver over at RNI support to learn more about how the project is coming along.

The Platypod Ultra Wants to Replace Tripods For Photographers

The Platypod Ultra is the latest offering from the company and is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter.

The New Leica M Monochrom Limited Edition Jim Marshall Set Looks Like Someone Just Wore Away at the Brass

If you’re a Leica camera fan, then you’re bound to understand the mentality behind the new Leica M Monochrom Limited Edition Jim Marshall Set.

So with the new Leica M Monochrom Limited Edition Jim Marshall Set, the paint seems to be inspired by this little fact of a Leica photographers’ life.

Oh yeah, and it’s an ode to the great music photographer, of course.

Take, for example, these disposable cameras that were given away to VIP guests during his Summer 2016 tour. Why?
