When is the last time you really thought about what is going on inside of your digital camera when you are taking a picture? I’m not talking about the exposure or direct photographic processes but beyond that, into the physics and other scientific processes? If you are like me, that answer is probably never, if ever.

Not many macro lenses have impressed me in the mirrorless camera category, but the Canon 28mm f3.5 ( $299.00 ) is probably an underrated lens that you haven’t heard a whole lot about. However, it’s got a few great features to it that make it very useful in various situations. Besides its compact size, it also has a cool macro light built into it. The light can be controlled using a button on the lens and can be very useful in many situations.
It’s been years since Fujifilm and Panasonic teamed up on developing an organic CMOS sensor, and over the years the teams have taken turns in releasing updates on the development of the sensor technology. This week Fujifilm released a new update on the technology, noting they are making strides towards mass production of the sensor for a wide variety of applications. Continue reading…
“Have you done any photo projects?” This is a question I loathed answering for a long time. I am asked this question several times a year and my response makes me cringe. “No, I haven’t done any sort of photo projects.”
Ugh…Inadequacy. As an Olympus Trailblazer, I am inspired by this type of work from my peers, and I knew it was my turn.
I have always wanted to put together some sort of cohesive series of images. However, over the years I have never found anything that I felt would make a good personal project for me.
Editor’s Note: in a previous version of this article our title stated that the camera has 67 AF points. It has 27 AF points and 67 weather seals.
The rumors have been around the internet, and it seems like the cat is out of the bag: the Pentax KP is a new DSLR designed to be super compact yet packs a lot of the features the Pentax K-3 series boasts. For example, Pentax is saying that it’s Weatherproof, has 5-axis image stabilization (called Shake Reduction II), and a brand new 24MP APS-C CMOS sensor at the heart. But most notably, Pentax is talking about the Pentax KP’s super compact body. Indeed, it looks like an old school DSLR with some retro looks–and that’s something I seriously digg.
But the biggest thing is how small it is: The specs say approximately 131.5mm/5.1 inches (W) x 101.0mm/ 4 inches (H) x 76.0mm/3 inches (D) (excluding protrusions).
The new Fujifilm X100F is here and brings with it a number of big upgrades from its predecessor. The Fujifilm X100 series of cameras have always been targeted at street and documentary photographers. They’re fantastic cameras that are both pretty and low profile in design. If you were to equate it to anything in the film world, it would be the Hexar AF. Since it’s inception, the camera has received a number of upgrades in image quality, autofocus, to the viewfinder, and in minor ways to the design.
Let’s take a look at some of the new things that make this camera so exciting.
So in a day with filled with major announcements regarding the GFX and X100 series cameras, Fujifilm has also dropped their latest X-T line camera and more details about the previously named 50mm F2. Indeed, we’re getting the Fujifilm X-T20 and the Fujifilm 50mm f2 lens. Continue reading…
You thought that the Sony a7r II had a great sensor? Well, DXOMark thinks there is a new king. According to the company’s newest test, the king is now the RED Helium 8K. This also goes on to dispel a number of big myths, such as a full frame sensor always having the best image quality no matter what. The sensor at the heart of this camera has an APS-H sensor–a format that was popular with Canon years ago in one of their 1D series cameras and which made a recent comeback with Sigma.
