It took them a while, but today the Impossible Project showed off their upcoming camera. CEO Oskar Smolokowski introduced the Impossible Project i-1 camera today that is an ode to the classic Polaroid cameras of old. This camera is an interesting combination of both digital and analog.

It’s going to cost $299 when it launches, and one of the coolest features is USB rechargeable batteries.

Not long ago, the folks over at Sony Alpha Rumors got new information on a very high end Sony mirrorless camera called the Sony a9–that in some ways would mirror the Sony a99 as a flagship mirrorless camera. And now, they’ve got the word that the new sensor could be anywhere from 70-80 megapixels; though it could learn more towards being a bit above 60MP.

Crazy, huh? If that’s correct and combined with the word of an unlimited RAW burst, then this absolutely will be a giant gamer changer. Imagine 80MP sports images!

Enter the Dot Art Urban Photo Awards

Screen Shot 2016-04-11 at 10.25.19 AM

This year, the Phoblographer is a Media Partner for the Dot Art Urban Photo Awards. To enter, you’ve got the option of three different themes: street photography, nature or sports. Entrants have the option for uploading either images or projects of your choice as long as they’re original images.

There’s an entrance fee that in my opinion is fairly minimal. The entrance fee goes towards prizes, promotion, summer exhibitions and the festival.

At the moment, you’ve got until the end of May; but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be putting together a collection of some of your best images. Check out the site for more details.

This past weekend, a Redditor released a brand new iOS app that pledges to make the Multiple Exposure Process simpler. Funny enough, it’s called Multiple Exposure; and uses an interface involving two different shutter buttons, simple exposure controls, and cool filters to really take advantage of what the camera can do on the iPhone. It’s best to use the smaller shutter button first and then the larger one.

Multiple Exposures typically involve one image to have a subject in silhouette and then another photo properly exposed. That’s why the basic controls just make sense here.

What you can also do is import an image and press which shutter button you want associated with which image. Beyond this, as you take a photo, you’ll see an overlay to preview what your final image will look like.

Right now, the app is available for $1.99 in the App store. We’ve got a bit more of a tutorial here for you; and if you’re looking for more inspiration check out our multiple exposure and double exposure coverage.

It was only a matter of time before sony realized that they needed a higher end camera than the Sony a7 series. And indeed, Sony Alpha Rumors is claiming it’s very true. According to the site, there will be a camera above the Sony a7 series; and it’s going to be much more DSLR-like. This camera will be called the Sony a9; and it’s going to feature dual XQD card slots and an unlimited RAW buffer shooting capability.

The admin of Sony Alpha Rumors tied this to the fact that the company released new XQD cards.

Crazy, huh? It sounds amazing until you think about how many images you’ll need to go through in Adobe Lightroom. But how likely is this to happen?

When you typically think about Hasselblad, you think about the company’s rich history and their incredible film cameras. And today, they’re taking a step forward with their new Hasselblad H6D camera.

The camera system contains two models that boast 100MP sensors (with the 50C having 50MP) and have shutter speeds from as slow as 60 minutes to as fast as 1/2000th. As far as sensitivity goes, it can shoot from ISO 64-12,800. However, I’m not so sure I’d want to shoot 100MP ISO 12,800 images.

Got a Photo Essay? We Want to Feature It!

Hey folks,

The Phoblographer is currently looking to feature the photo essays of various photographers. Got a special documentary project? Maybe you shot the entire process of how you cooked that very intricate curry and have steps talking about the recipe and how you shot it? Or an essay on a portrait series? How about your essay on a subject that’s really close to your heart? If you’ve published it on your own blog, that’s okay because we can syndicate it and credit you accordingly.

Plus, as always, the site is looking for photographers to interview. Sports, documentary, news, portraits, food, underwater, landscapes, etc. as long as you’ve got a solid portfolio of your own work we’d love to feature you.

The Phoblographer would love to feature it and hear you talk about it in your own words. Find out how to submit after the jump.

Two of the most reached for prime lenses amongst professional photographers are the 85mm lens and the 135mm. While there are a plethora of 85mm lenses out there, there really aren’t a whole lot of 135mm lenses. Perhaps a reason for this is the fact that longer focal length prime lenses are tougher to use without a tripod. However, Nikon Rumors is saying that we’ll be getting more.soon; and considering that this is a Photokina year, it just makes sense.

Word on the street is that Tamron, Zeiss, Sigma and maybe even Nikon could introduce new 135mm lenses. Zeiss already has an excellent 135mm f2, but they’ve retired their old lineup of lenses and are creating loads of new Milvus glass complete with weather sealing. I’m honestly not sure how Zeiss can make their 135mm lens better than it is.

Today, Panasonic is announcing the new Panasonic GX85–a camera that wasn’t such a well kept secret. The Panasonic GX85 has a 16MP Four Thirds sensor that has had the low pass filter removed. It also has 5 axis stabilization. The camera can also shoot 4k video, has post-focus mode, can shoot at up to 8fps, and claims low light focusing abilities down to -4EV.

Even cooler: it’s got a special new L Monochrome mode that appeals to the black and white photographer in all of us. It’ll be available at the end of May for $799.99. The press release is after the jump.

Don’t count Samsung out of the camera/photography game just yet: today the company announced their latest entry into the NX series of cameras. It’s called the Samsung NXs–with the “s” moniker alluding to selfie sticks.

Despite the fact that a kitten dies every time that you use one, even I need to admit that the Samsung NXs is bound to appeal to the people who want DSLR (or mirrorless camera) quality with the ease of use that the Selfie Stick allows.
