  • Mastering Photography: Nature vs. Nurture
    on May 26, 2019 at 2:00 pm

    I have three kids and they are all so different, one is quite shy, one is super confident and the third never stops talking – they have all been raised the same so I often wonder about 'nature or nurture'. I was recently in the Faroe Islands and had planned to make a video on the rules of photography but ended up discussing the nature vs. nurture argument for photography, which actually produced a more compelling result. Evening rays on one of the many amazing fjords in the Faroe Islands. Ever since I can remember, I have been fascinated by photos and rich visual communication. At school I had difficulties with English, reading and writing and it was only when I was in my twenties that I found out I was dyslexic. Although reading was a struggle, I loved to look at photo books and would spend hours studying them, pondering over the photos, and trying to work out why they looked so good. I took up photography at the age of 13 and found it to be a great way to express myself […]

  • FAA expands LAANC capabilities to 100+ new airports
    on May 24, 2019 at 2:27 pm

    At the beginning of this month, the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) Acting Deputy Administrator, Carl Burleson, announced that Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability (LAANC) would be made available to an additional 109 contract towers. The government agency has acted quickly since the news broke at AUVSI Exponential's keynote presentation.

Applications such as Kittyhawk, AirMap, and Skyward give qualifying remote pilots approval in real-time to access controlled airspace. Without LAANC, the process of getting approval via a waiver could take up to 90 days. Approximately 600 airports are now covered by the LAANC capability. The FAA also mentions that the list of facilities taking part in LAANC will change. Some airports will drop it altogether. The full list airports added today can be viewed […]

  • Leica, Lenny Kravitz produce limited edition ‘Drifter’ M Monochrom with snakeskin finish
    on May 23, 2019 at 7:12 pm

    Rock star and keen photographer Lenny Kravitz has produced another limited edition camera in partnership with Leica Germany, this time with a rock 'n' roll feel—and a snakeskin covering. The Drifter is a Leica M Monochrom kit that comes with Leica Summicron-M 28mm f/2 ASPH, and an APO-Summicron-M 75mm f/2 ASPH lenses and a case to carry them. All the items in the kit are finished with a sepia brown paint and the camera and strap use a synthetic snakeskin that is designed to reflect Kravitz’s wardrobe. Leica says the result is an ‘attention-commanding and soulful Leica camera made for global touring,' with Kravitz adding 'I’m a drifter [...] That has been my life since I was 15-years-old; I’m always on the road.' Other than the finish the camera is a standard M Monochrom, but will also feature untreated brass on the hotshoe rails, the thumb wheel, the shutter button and the soft-release button to lend it a stylish vintage look over time. This is the […]

  • Samsung researchers create AI that transforms still images into talking portraits
    on May 23, 2019 at 6:57 pm

    Researchers with the Samsung AI Center in Moscow and the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology have published a new paper detailing the creation of software that generates 3D animated heads from a single still image. Unlike previously detailed AI systems capable of generating photo-realistic portraits, the new technology produces moving, talking heads that, though not perfect, are highly realistic. 'Practical scenarios' require a system that can be trained using only a few—or even a single —of a person rather than an extensive image dataset, the newly published study explains. To satisfy this requirement, researchers created a system for which 'training can be based on just a few images and done quickly, despite the need to tune tens of millions of parameters.' Using generative adversarial networks, researchers were able to animate painted portraits in addition to images, producing, among other things, a talking, moving version of the Mona Lisa. As demonstrated in a […]

  • Elderly camera store owner suffers broken arm during violent robbery
    on May 23, 2019 at 6:51 pm

    K&R Photographics, located in Crescent Springs, Kentucky, is the latest camera shop to report the theft of expensive camera equipment. According to store co-owner Rob Kumler, who spoke with Cincinnati ABC affiliate WCPO, his 70-year-old wife and shop co-owner Wilma was attacked by masked, armed men who broke into the store on the afternoon of Wednesday, May 22. According to Kumler, Wilma was thrown to the ground roughly and suffered a broken arm as a result. 'Tens of thousands of dollars' in high-end camera equipment was stolen. In addition to harming Wilma and stealing the hardware, the robbers accidentally dropped and destroyed a $12,000 camera. The masked thieves were reportedly armed with a gun and a hammer; they are said to have immediately moved toward the most expensive equipment in the store, indicating that at least one had likely been in the store prior to the robbery. Four security cameras were live in the store at the time of the assault and theft. Kumler points out […]

  • A Tale of Three Firmware Updates: Two Were Fine, One Was Awful.
    by Mel Martin on May 23, 2019 at 6:00 pm

    Software and firmware updates are a fact of life for photographers. They don't come all that often and usually offer bug fixes or new or improved features. As a longtime Canon user, I found firmware updates easy and unintrusive. Having recently moved to a Sony a7 III, I'm rather shocked at the complexity of what should have be a simple operation.

  • Canon now offers a service to de-click the Control Ring on its RF lenses
    on May 23, 2019 at 3:29 pm

    In addition to a larger diameter mount and additional contacts, one of new features of Canon's RF lenses—and one of its EF to RF adapters—is the Control Ring, a physical dial around the perimeter of the lens that can be customized to control various camera functions including aperture, ISO and shutter speed. By default, the Control Ring is adjusted in predetermined steps, which click into place while rotating the ring. While this is beneficial when you need a tactile indication of how many steps you've adjusted various settings, it does cause a bit of movement and noise, which isn't helpful if you're filming video. An illustration provided by Canon showing off the Control Ring on its RF 35mm F1.8 IS Macro lens. Canon is addressing this problem by offering a de-clicking service for RF lenses. According to a pricing sheet, Canon will charge $79.99 to de-click any RF lens and $59.99 to de-click the Control Ring Mount Adapter EF-EOS R, not including the cost of taxes and […]

  • Birth of the Renaissance: Shooting with the Fujifilm GFX 100 in Florence, Italy
    on May 23, 2019 at 2:00 pm

    All of the images in this article were shot with a pre-production Fujifilm GFX 100 and are used with permission. Image quality may not represent exactly the output from final shipping cameras but is likely to be extremely close. Likewise, images of the camera may show minor cosmetic differences compared to final shipping units. It's exceedingly rare that I get to feel cool, especially at work. But every now and then an opportunity arises to do something, go somewhere or see something that makes me pinch myself. Just such an opportunity came up recently, when I spent a week shooting with a pre-production sample of Fujifilm's new GFX 100 in Florence, Italy - the birthplace of the Renaissance. I've been fascinated by the GFX 100 since we got a sneak peek of the camera still under development, earlier this year. And 18 year-old me loved the few days I spent in Florence in 2000, the summer before I went off to waste British taxpayers' money for four years at university. Nineteen years on, […]

  • Apple MacBook Pro refreshed with 8-core processors and improved keyboards
    on May 23, 2019 at 1:12 pm

    On Tuesday, Apple announced the launch of its first ever 8-core MacBook Pro laptops, offering faster 8th- and 9th-generation Intel Core processors with up to double the performance speed of quad-core models. According to Apple, the new 8-core models can handle 'complex edits and filters' in Photoshop at speed up to 75% faster than the fastest quad-core 15-inch MacBook Pro model. The new 6-core and 8-core processor options are available for the 15-inch MacBook Pro; the smaller 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar refresh offers faster quad-core processors with up to a 4.7GHz Turbo Boost speed. In providing additional examples of how the new hardware benefits users, Apple says its new 8-core MacBook Pro can handle editing up to 11 simultaneous multi-cam 4K video streams in Final Cut Pro X, compile code up to 65% faster in Xcode, and render 3D scenes at up to double the speed of the fastest quad-core 15-inch MacBook Pro model.

  • First of the breed: Inside the GFX 100 pre-production assembly line
    on May 23, 2019 at 1:00 pm

    First of the breed: GFX 100 prototypes take shape Back in early March, I had the opportunity to visit Fujifilm's main Taiwa camera assembly plant in Sendai, Japan. Among other things, the so-called 'X Factory' is where Fujifilm's assembly line staff are currently putting together the company's new 100MP flagship, the medium format GFX. But when I visited, mass production was still some way off. Instead, a small dedicated production team was creating the very first working prototypes of the GFX 100, ready for beta testers and Fujifilm's engineers to start working with. Prototypes are built largely by hand, and the process is time-consuming, expensive and fascinating. While we were shown every step, Fujifilm is understandably protective over some of the details, but has given us permission to publish a small number of images. Click through for a glimpse behind the curtain, and back in time, as the very first GFX 100 prototypes took shape earlier this year. First of the breed: GFX 100 […]

  • Hands-on with the Fujifilm GFX 100
    on May 23, 2019 at 6:00 am

    Hands-on with the Fujifilm GFX 100 It's here! The long-awaited next-generation Fujifilm GFX has been officially launched. Announced at Photokina back in September last year, and previewed to us in Dubai in February, Fujifilm has kept pretty tight-lipped about the final specification of the camera up to now, but finally the waiting is over. Click through to learn more about the camera that Fujifilm is hoping will shake up the pro photography market - the GFX 100. New 100MP medium-format sensor Central (literally) to the GFX 100 is a brand new 100MP back-illuminated sensor, which, at a technical level, is basically an upsized version of the sensors used in the APS-C format X-T3 and X-T30. Upsized by 4X, in fact. Yes, the 43.8 x 32.9mm medium-format sensor in this camera has an area a full four times greater than APS-C, and 1.7X greater than full-frame. As well as the obvious increase in output resolution, this should also ensure a significant boost in image quality compared to smaller […]

  • Fujifilm GFX 100 offers 100 Megapixels, phase-detect AF and 4K video for $10,000
    on May 23, 2019 at 6:00 am

    We've known about the Fujifilm GFX 100 since it was shown at Photokina last fall, and in about a month, you can get one of your own. The GFX 100 features a medium-format (44 x 33mm) BSI-CMOS sensor with 102 million effective pixels. The camera is powered by a quad-core X-Processor 4 and offers a native ISO range of 100-12,800 (which expands to 50-102,400) and support for 16-bit Raw files. In-body 5-axis image stabilization reduces shake by up to 5.5 stops according to Fujifilm, and the entire sensor is mounted on springs to reduce shutter shock. If the GFX 100 uses the Sony IMX 461 sensor, which we strongly suspect it does, we expect significantly improved low light and high ISO performance thanks to the sensor's dual gain architecture. The DSLR-styled body is incredibly well-built, with the durability you'd expect from a high-end camera. About the same size as a professional DSLR, the GFX 100 weighs in at 1.4kg (3.1lbs). The camera has a built-in grip for portrait shooting that can […]

  • Camera-friendly Canadian airport cuts holes in perimeter fence for aviation photographers
    on May 22, 2019 at 8:16 pm

    Québec City Jean Lesage International Airport, often shortened to Jean Lesage International Airport, has made camera holes in a range of locations around its perimeter fence to allow photographers an unhindered view of planes taking off, landing and moving along its runways and taxi areas. The airport has propelled itself to the number one spot for aviation photographers with the project. Metal frames surround the holes to prevent wire scratching lenses and accompanying signs to clarify the area is reserved for photographers. The airport got together with local plane-spotting group YQB Aviation to identify the best angles for photographers and then created a total of 10 sites all around the airport that provide views of exactly what photographers want to shoot, seen in the image below: Jean Lesage International Airport which recently won awards for its environmental practices and as an outstanding workplace, and which carried almost 1.8 million passengers in 2018, also […]

  • DJI AirSense will add aircraft detection to DJI drones starting next year
    on May 22, 2019 at 6:27 pm

    This morning, DJI hosted a panel of experts in the aviation field, including the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) Jay Merkel and AUVSI's Tracy Lamb, to discuss the implementation of airplane and helicopter detectors in its new consumer drones starting January 1, 2020. Every drone model weighing over 250 grams will have AirSense Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) receivers installed. AirSense technology, which is a product of over 30,000 hours of development efforts by DJI engineers on all security measures, works by receiving ADS-B signals from nearby airplanes and helicopters. It allows drone pilots to detect and avoid traditional aircraft nearby. 'I was an F-18 pilot years ago, and when you’re going that fast, it’s really hard to see anything. … ADS-B is certainly one of those things that for all pilots, and for controllers as well, becomes a situational awareness tool' said Houston Mills of UPS Airlines, at the panel.

  • Adobe's mobile video editing app Rush makes its way to Android
    on May 22, 2019 at 4:50 pm

    Adobe has just announced the release of Premiere Rush CC for Android. Previously the video editing app had already been available for iOS, Mac and Windows operating systems. To run the Android version, you'll need a fairly recent and powerful device, such as the Google Pixel 2 or 3, Samsung Galaxy S9, S10 and Note 8 and 9, as well the OnePlus 6T. Premiere Rush CC is meant to be a simpler alternative to Premiere Pro CC and Audition for mobile video editing on the move. It is aimed at Youtubers, vloggers and similar content creators. In terms of feature set the app offers color correction and resizing, and the option to include motion graphics and audio adjustments among others. Finished videos can be directly shared to Youtube, Instagram and other channels and all projects are synced to the cloud for accessibility from all devices and data security. Projects can also be edited in Premiere Pro. The wait is over! #PremiereRush is now available in the Samsung Galaxy Store & Google […]

  • US government warns of potential spying by Chinese drone companies
    on May 22, 2019 at 4:41 pm

    On Monday, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (USDHS) sent out an alert that was first obtained by CNN. It states that drones manufactured in China are a 'potential risk to an organization's information.' The products 'contain components that can compromise your data and share your information on a server accessed beyond the company itself.' 'The United States government has strong concerns about any technology product that takes American data into the territory of an authoritarian state that permits its intelligence services to have unfettered access to that data or otherwise abuses that access,' the alert continues. 'Those concerns apply with equal force to certain Chinese-made (unmanned aircraft systems)-connected devices capable of collecting and transferring potentially revealing data about their operations and the individuals and entities operating them, as China imposes unusually stringent obligations on its citizens to support national intelligence activities,' the alert […]

  • Samsung starts mass-production of 5x tele smartphone camera module
    on May 22, 2019 at 2:39 pm

    Image: etnews/Samsung Huawei started the trend for longer zoom reach on smartphone cameras with the 5x periscope-style tele camera in the Huawei P30 Pro. OPPO followed soon after with a similar system in the OPPO Reno 10x. It's only a question of time before we'll see 5x teles from the other major manufacturers and everything points towards Samsung being next in line. Samsung Electro-Mechanics (SEM) has kick-started mass production of a new camera module with 5x optical tele and if the rumors can be trusted we will see the new module in the upcoming Galaxy Note device generation. Image: etnews/Samsung According to a report by Korean publication etnews the camera module will have a very slim 5mm profile which eliminates the need for a 'camera hump' on the back of the device. Like in the Huawei solution, a refracting prism is used to channel incoming light onto the sensor. The module will be aligned vertically in the device. Sample shots from the new system show off magnifications at […]

  • Olympus's TG-6 waterproof camera is a modest update to its predecessor
    on May 22, 2019 at 6:00 am

    Olympus's Tough TG-5 is one of our favorite underwater cameras, and the company today introduced its replacement, the TG-6. The TG-6 is a modest update to its predecessor, with the majority of its changes related to macro and underwater shooting. The company also added an anti-reflective coating to the glass surrounding the sensor, to reduce flare and ghosting. The TG-6 has the same design as its predecessor, though it's LCD now has 1.04 million dots, compared to 460k dots on the TG-5. Unfortunately, we found that the display scratches just as easily as before: disappointing for a 'tough' camera. Its rugged credentials are unchanged: The camera is waterproof to 15m (50ft), shockproof from 2.4m (7ft), crushproof to 100kgf (220lbf) and freezeproof to -10°C/+14°F. As before, the TG-6 has a GPS with a compass, manometer, thermometer and accelerometer. A tracking feature associates the location a photo with the data captured with above sensors (via an app). The TG-5's microscope […]

And even though the TG-6 is a modest update over the TG-5, it's easily one of the best water/dust/crush-proof cameras you can get for under $500. See our Olympus Tough TG-6 sample gallery […]
