Chris Gampat The Phoblographer Sigma dp and 50mm f1.4 product images first impressions (12 of 12)ISO 64001-40 sec at f - 5.6

In the world of photography–be it that the craft is carried out professionally or leisurely–it has always been a matter of dispute whether a prime lens is preferred over a zoom lens, or the other way around. We here at The Phoblographer tend to think rather pragmatically about this: each has its own merits and downsides, and it clearly depends on what you’re up to. Let’s however for a moment assume that you lean towards using prime lenses–or you want to. After years of lens testing lenses, we think there are five essential focal lengths that every photographer should try at least once. These are the 24mm super wide-angle, the 35mm wide-angle, the 50mm normal, the 85mm short telephoto, and the 135mm telephoto.

Before you go on, we also want you to remember that no one is making a bad camera or lens.

Photographer Calvin Hobson has a very unique story as a photographer. He’s a former armed service member, and always had the creative bug in him. Calvin had the opportunity to travel a lot with the US Air Force, and since leaving he has transitioned into shooting weddings. Like many wedding photographers, he had faced many of the problems of an oversaturated market. But he found ways to overcome them not only through his work, but his people skills.

As many photographers will tell you, people skills are one of the best things that you can have a professional.

Kevin Lee The Phoblographer Polaroid Socialmatic Product Images-7

The long, long awaited Polaroid Socialmatic camera is finally here at last. Since being first teased as an Instagram concept camera in May 2012 then picked up under Polaroid’s banner a year later, this square-shaped instant photo camera is officially available from Photojojo for starting price of $299.

Essentially a digital camera with a built-in photo printer, the Polaroid Socialmatic is equipped with a 14MP front sensor and 2MP rear camera for selfies that can produce 2 x 3-inch full color prints in under a minute. On the back there’s also a generous 4.5-inch touchscreen to compose and edit images. All these photos are saved on the camera’s built-in 4GB of internal storage or a MicroSD card.

The Socialmatic also comes with GPS, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth, allowing users to share directly from the camera to Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Meanwhile, Polaroid has also created a Photonetwork, which allows you to geo-tag your images with GPS data, create data rich QR codes, and connect with other Socialmatic photographers.

The Polaroid Socialmatic is available now from Photojojo with 10 included prints for $299 or $344 with 110 prints. The premium Zink paper itself costs $25 for a pack of 50 prints or $45 for a set of 100 sheets.

Fujifilm xt1

In the year 2014, it’s become very clear that the mirrorless camera industry is the future and that the DSLR is steadily being phased out. We’re not going to say that it’s dead because many people still purchase DSLRs in droves. But after the jump, you will see a major round up of mirrorless cameras released vs DSLRs.

One number is more than double the other.
