  • Instagram leak claims post re-sharing feature is in testing
    on September 22, 2018 at 12:00 pm

    A new report from The Verge claims Instagram is currently testing a feature that allows users to re-share posts to their own account feeds. Such a feature, assuming it were to launch publicly, would allow Instagram users to share other users' content, each re-shared post reportedly showing the original poster, as well as each user that subsequently shared it. The Verge cites screenshots of the alleged test and "an interview with a source," in its report, however Instagram told the publication that it is not developing or testing a re-sharing feature. A re-sharing tool, if one launches, may be limited to businesses Nonetheless, the report claims that Instagram is calling the feature "seamless sharing" internally, developing it as a way for users to present photos and videos from other users in their own feeds. This would be similar to the Stories sharing feature Instagram launched earlier this year. Each post can reportedly be shared at least two times, the reports states. The feature […]

  • Samsung launches Galaxy A7 triple-camera mid-range smartphone
    on September 21, 2018 at 4:59 pm

    Huawei's P20 Pro started the trend towards the end of last year and now triple-cameras are quickly becoming the norm. Samsung just launched the Galaxy A7, a mid-range device that features a triple-camera on its rear. A 24MP / F1.7 main camera is joined by an 8MP / F2.4 super-wide-angle with a 120-degree field of view and a third 5MP module is reserved for creating the background-blurring fake bokeh effect in portrait mode. So, unfortunately the Samsung's triple-cam setup does not come with a tele lens but maybe that's too much to ask from a mid-ranger at this point. The rear camera uses Samsung's Intelligent Scene Optimizer system, which uses scene recognition to automatically adjust contrast, brightness and color for optimized image output. The front camera features a 24MP / F2.0 camera module, LED flash and bokeh mode, so should be good for decent selfies, even in low light conditions. The rest of the specifications look very respectable for a mid-range device as well. The […]

  • Hands-on with the Sony 24mm F1.4 G Master
    on September 21, 2018 at 1:00 pm

    Hands-on with the Sony 24mm F1.4 G Master The Sony 24mm F1.4 is the latest lens to join the company's premium G Master lineup. It's impressively compact given its specifications, and at 445g (0.98lb), it's 200g - or almost half a pound - lighter than the Sigma 24mm F1.4 Art for DSLR cameras. It's even lighter compared to the E-mount Sigma 24mm Art lens - 335g lighter - or about half the weight. The 24mm F1.4 balances really nicely on a Sony a7R III, with the center of gravity very close to the body. Sony claims that the short flange distance as well as the inclusion of two XA (extreme aspherical) elements help keep the lens' size down. Hands-on with the Sony 24mm F1.4 G Master The optical formula comprises 13 elements in 10 groups. Sony claims that the two XA elements combine with three ED (extra dispersion) elements to provide great resolution and coma suppression even at F1.4. The XA elements also help to combat field curvature and astigmatism, which are aberrations common to […]

  • Canon PowerShot SX70 offers 65X zoom lens, 4K video and CR3 Raw support
    on September 20, 2018 at 11:37 pm

    Canon has introduced its latest superzoom camera, the PowerShot SX70 HS. Its equivalent focal range of 21-1365mm hasn't changed, but the sensor, image processor, viewfinder and video capabilities have been greatly improved. The SX70 has a 20.3MP BSI-CMOS sensor paired with Canon's latest Digic 8 processor. The lens remains at 65X (almost half that of Nikon's new P1000,) with a maximum aperture range of F3.4-6.5. The new image processor has improved the effectiveness of the camera's image stabilization system according to Canon, which can now reduce shake by up to five stops. The Digic 8 also brings along support for Canon's CR3 Raw format, which has smaller file sizes than the previous CR2 format. While the design of the camera isn't radically different from that of the SX60, there are three notable changes. First, the electronic viewfinder is now OLED with 2.36 million dots, compared to LCD with 922k dots. There's also an eye sensor that wasn't present on the SX60. Second, there's […]

As with past lenses, the Color Skopar 21mm F3.5 features full EXIF support.

  • Sony announces lightweight FE 24mm F1.4 G Master prime
    on September 20, 2018 at 2:00 pm

    Sony has taken the wraps off of its new full-frame 24mm F1.4 G Master prime lens. Despite that fast maximum aperture, Sony has created a remarkably small and light lens compared to its peers, with a weight of just 445 grams (15.7 ounces). Compare that to the Sigma 24mm F1.4 Art shown below, which is 50% heavier and considerably more bulky, albeit cheaper. It's a departure from traditional GM lenses, which tend to be large so as to not sacrifice optimal performance. This lens bucks the trend by prioritizing both optical performance and size and weight. Sony's new 24mm F1.4 GM is significantly smaller than the Sigma equivalent to its left. In hand on a Sony body, it feels more like a F1.8 prime, which is really quite an achievement for a F1.4 lens, particularly one with the optical performance of the 24mm GM. The 24mm F1.4 GM has a total of 13 elements, including two XA (extreme aspherical) which significantly reduce coma, and three ED elements. Sony's Nano AR coating reduces flare and […]

    When you start working with off-camera lighting, whether it involves speedlights or something larger and more powerful, the next step will be figuring out which light modifiers work best for you.

There are so many different light modifiers out there and each of them offers a distinct set of advantages and disadvantages.

    If you’re new to photography, one of the most challenging aspects of understanding a camera is figuring out how different settings affect the overall look of an image.

    Last year, Nikon announced plans to end its sales in Brazil as part of a "global scale restructuring," a decision that went into effect on December 31, 2017. Though product sales ended, the company maintained its Brazil-based customer and technical support business segments in the nation, but that too has come to an end. In a statement last week, Nikon Brazil revealed that it is ending all of its activities in the country. Nikon Group will still offer technical assistance and warranty repairs for valid warranties, but photography equipment owners will need to submit those requests through the Nikon Brazil website. Any out-of-warranty requests will be handled by Nikon USA. Since the shuttering of its e-commerce sales in December 2017, photographers seeking Nikon gear in Brazil have had to rely on parallel imports brought into the country through non-official channels, without valid warranties.

  • CatLABS of JP ceases efforts to keep Packfilm alive after two years of trying
    on September 18, 2018 at 3:39 pm

    Two-and-a-half years after it announced plans to keep Packfilm alive, CatLABS of JP has announced it's no longer continuing its efforts. Typically known for its impressive collection of analogue photography products, CatLABS of JP announced in March 2016 that it had plans to revitalize Packfilm — an endeavor further expedited by Fujifilm's discontinuation of its Packfilm offerings. Over the next two years, CatLABS of JP spent a great deal of time and capital looking for the puzzle pieces it needed to keep Packfilm alive. 'We had begun a globe-trotting effort to secure things for the future, and met (sometimes secretly) with top executives from companies all around the world, (Japan, Germany, France, China and the US),' says CatLABS of JP on its update page. 'We visited factories, warehouses and dungeons, walked knee deep in dust and detritus to try and uncover some long lost or forgotten piece of technology we hoped would aid us in this quest. We met with suppliers, designers, […]

  • Think Tank Photo launches dual-access, water-resistant Lens Case Duo lineup
    on September 17, 2018 at 3:50 pm

    Think Tank photo has launched a new line of protective lens cases it calls Lens Case Duo. The six cases in the lineup feature a soft, padded liner and two zippered access points: one from the top of the case and one from the side. Each of these cases can be used on their own or together as a modular system. The two methods of accessing the lens inside make it easy to pair with either a belt system or stuffed inside a backpack — whatever your setup requires. The larger cases, designed for massive primes and telephoto lenses, include a shoulder strap in the event you prefer to carry it as a sling of sorts. Currently, the Lens Case Duo comes in six different sizes: 5, 10, 15, 20, 30 and 40. The smallest of the cases (5) is meant to hold a small prime or kit lens. On the other end of the spectrum, the biggest case (40) can hold telephoto zoom lenses, such as Canon and Nikon 70-200mm F2.8. You can find a full list of suggested carrying capacities on Think Tank Photo's announcment […]

    by jgray@imaging-resource.com on September 16, 2018 at 10:00 am

    Composition is one of the most important aspects of any great photograph. In landscape photography, there is a lot of consideration placed on composing the frame from front to back. After all, you often want to produce images with a lot of depth. In a two-dimensional medium such as photography, there are different ways you can create a sense of depth.
