Profoto’s A1 Sees a Price Drop Which Makes It a Little More Competitive

The Profoto A1, a roundhead Speedlight, burst on to the scene a few years ago with an eye-watering price of $995.

7 Rugged But Very Comfortable Camera Bags For Outdoor Photographers

Part of the fun of landscape photography is wandering around in the great outdoors while you look for the perfect shot, or while you hike to your destination.

Review: Canon RF 15-35mm F2.8 L IS USM (A Legend Is Reborn)

The EF 16-35mm F2.8 L lenses became one of the most beloved series of Canon lenses thanks to their stunning image qualities, superior build qualities, and just how versatile and fun they were to use.

DXOMark: Sony’s A9 II Sensor Beats the 1DX II, Is Worse Than the A7 III

The Sony a9 II hit the shelves just in time for the upcoming 2020 Olympic games, but a few eyebrows were raised when the specs of the camera were released.

The new Sony did feature an updated image processor, though, but how much difference has that made to the camera? Let’s find out after the break....
