Coming soon to the Sony E mount is a pretty awesome option for photographers wanting a walkaround lens. It’s the new Tamron 17-50mm F4 Di III VXD — and it costs only $699. That’s only $200 less than the 28-75mm f2.8 G2! Of course, the new Tamron 17-50mm F4 starts at a wider angle and then doesn’t reach out as long. It’s also just an f4 aperture lens throughout the range. But this seems like an incredibly curious decision.
I think The Phoblographer’s Fujifilm reps had to listen to me try to understand the Fujifilm Instax Pal on a few different calls when we were given information on it prior to the announcement. That’s probably what’s so incredible about it — you really have to experience it in person to understand it. The Fujifilm Instax Pal isn’t a camera meant to compete with the much more serious image-making devices targeted at working photographers or content creators. Instead, it reminds me of the glee that a confident, nerdy woman once had when I wore a Pikachu t-shirt to a summer hangout. So if there’s a bit of your inner child still left, you’ll probably really like the Fujifilm Instax Pal.
“I was still too young to verbalize the catharsis that came with clicking the shutter button, proof of your presence, and relief from the memory reel stuck on replay from the origin event that occurred several months prior, from whence Goo Rot initially crawled from her primordial slime, when my dad almost shot my head off when my mother divorced him for his new meth hobby,” is how photographer Samantha Ashcraft tells us she got into photography when he tried out her uncle Bill’s camera in 1999. Her uncle eventually gave her a camera and she dove into analog photography from there. Trust us when we say that from there, the story and how Samantha developed her creativity get very fascinating.
The launch of the Nikon Z fc was met with a mixed outcry of love for the retro-inspired design and disenchantment over the camera’s crop sensor and single card slot. But that outcry fueled rumors that the company would craft a similar camera with a full-frame sensor someday. That day is finally here. The new Nikon Z f brings a full-frame 24.5-megapixel sensor to a classically inspired design. But, while a full-frame variation of the Z fc has been high on Nikon fans’ wish list, the camera’s gorgeous exterior — in six different colors — isn’t the best thing about the new camera. The most exciting thing about the Nikon Z f? The list of features, from major flagship features to nuanced details, suggests that Nikon is listening to what photographers are asking for.

The Panasonic 24mm f1.8 Lumix S lens is pretty incredible for what it is. It’s weather resistant, controls distortion very well and delivers beautiful colors. Mix it with Panasonic’s Real Time LUT feature and you’ll get full frame images that can look like film. Better yet, it’s got a discount. The original camera, the S5, …
There’s something about the square format portrait that I think lends itself to being perfect for anything. In fact, there are a ton of reasons why. Unfortunately, it isn’t always as widely accepted in the photography communtiy despite there being validation for the format. In medium format, lots of folks say that it’s too small. In 35mm format, tons. of photographers would rather crop later. But truly, the square format is fantastic.
Once a popular category, compact cameras with large sensors are becoming harder to find. But German camera maker Leica’s latest in the Q compact series brings modern features like animal eye AF and a 60-megapixel sensor to a classic camera body that has changed very little over the years. The Leica Q3 is setting out to prove, once again, that simpler is better when it comes to genres like street photography or even journalism and lifestyle.
