  • SmugMug snaps up Flickr, promises 'the future is bright'
    on April 21, 2018 at 1:27 am

    Photo-sharing site Flickr has been acquired by photo hosting service SmugMug. According to USA Today, SmugMug CEO Don MacAskill is committed to 'breathing new life' into the once market-leading service, and will maintain it as 'a standalone community of amateur and professional photographers'. One of the most important and popular services of the digital photography boom of the mid 2000s, Flickr was acquired by Yahoo more than a decade ago, but in recent years the site has been in decline as once-loyal users abandoned the stagnant platform in favor of competitive services. Flickr loyalists had hoped that Yahoo's then-new CEO Melissa Mayer would be able to 'make Flickr awesome again' when she took over in 2012, but the once industry-leading photo site never regained its former relevance. Following Verizon's acquisition of Yahoo and Flickr in 2017, it looked possible that the service might be shuttered, but it seems that with the SmugMug acquisition, this one-time giant of the digital […]

  • SmugMug announces the intent to purchase Flickr, creating a massive photography community
    by jgray@imaging-resource.com on April 20, 2018 at 11:20 pm

    One of the largest photo management platforms out there, SmugMug, has made a big splash in the industry today by acquiring Flickr. For the last 15 years, SmugMug has focused on helping and supporting photographers with their consumer-friendly business model, which doesn't rely upon forcing advertising on visitors or utilizing user data. Flickr, founded shortly after SmugMug (in 2004), has been focused on allowing users to store and share their photos. Ultimately, the missions of both services were never very disparate so it's a...

  • Meyer Optik is reviving Dr. Rudolph's APO Plasmat 105mm F2.7 lens
    on April 20, 2018 at 7:55 pm

    Meyer Optik has announced its new APO-Makro-Plasmat 105 F2.7 lens, a modern version of one of the classic Plasmat lenses developed by Dr. Paul Rudolph 105 years ago. As with previous Meyer Optik revivals, the company is funding its product on Kickstarter, where it explains that the new Plasmat 105 "offers natural sharpness, unbelievable color reproduction, and a glowing bokeh united at every step of the aperture." The name Makro, Meyer Optik explains, was chosen by Rudolph in reference to the Makro-Plasmat's suitability for 35mm, not macro, photography. The company says that while its revamped version of the lens offers performance that's "in the spirit of the Plasmat lenses," it created the model with modern camera gear in mind. The APO-Makro-Plasmat 105 has a 105mm focal length, 60mm width, an F2.7 - F22 aperture, 1.1m / 3.6ft minimum focusing distance, manual focusing, 6 elements in 5 groups, as well as 15 steel aperture blades with an anti-reflex coating. As with the original […]

  • Sony's updated 3D Creator app can use your smartphone's front camera to scan your face
    on April 20, 2018 at 6:24 pm

    Sony's 3D Creator app with its 3D-face-scanning function was first introduced with the Xperia XZ1 and XZ1 Compact last year. Now the Japanese manufacturer is rolling out the update to version 2 of the app. The most important upgrade of the new version is the ability to create 3D models of your face with your smartphone's front camera. This means, unlike with the previous version, you don't need the help of another person to create a 3D-model of your face and head. Of course, the option to use the main camera and get someone else to do the job is still available. The updated app also lets you share the results straight to Facebook or order a 3D-printed copy of your model. And version 2.0 also comes with "post-scan cloud processing," which allows you to render 3D models with 4K resolution textures for better detail and realism. 3D Creator 2.0 is compatible with the Xperia XZ1, XZ1 Compact, and XZ Premium. If you're lucky enough to own one of these devices, you can download the newest […]

  • Meike announces full frame 85mm F1.8, its first autofocus lens
    on April 20, 2018 at 6:15 pm

    Chinese accessories brand Meike has announced it will introduce an autofocus 85mm F1.8 lens for Canon and Nikon full-frame DSLRs. In addition to adding another (very likely) affordable third party option to the mix, this will be the company’s first AF lens. Details are a little thin on the ground, but early marketing materials suggest it will be a lightweight and compact lens with an all-metal body construction. The optical formula will use nine elements in six groups, and all elements will be multi-coated on both sides. Close focus will begin at 0.85m with a maximum magnification of 1:1.8. The lens will be 79.5mm long and will accept a 67mm filter. In addition to the Nikon and Canon full-frame mounts, Meike will release the MK-85mm F1.8 lens for Sony APS-C models as well. No price has been announced as of yet, and the company hasn’t said when we should expect the lens to go on sale. For more information visit the Meike website. […]

  • Mathieu Stern tries out the very rare Helios-65 and captures swirly, unusual bokeh
    by jgray@imaging-resource.com on April 20, 2018 at 6:00 pm

    Photographer Mathieu Stern is well-known for his videos showcasing odd and unusual lenses. His new video is about a particularly rare lens, the Prototype Helios-65. This lens was produced in Kiev in 1965 and it features an unusual mount, for which there is no commercially-available adapter. Stern acquired the lens and found a way to 3D print an adapter for it. A similar lens, the Helios 44-2, is known for its swirly bokeh, so Stern was curious to try the Helios-65. Find out what he thinks of the old lens in the video below. To... (read more) […]

  • The 5-in-1 'One Backpack' wants to be your do-it-all bag
    on April 20, 2018 at 1:27 pm

    Design company ITR Studio has launched a Kickstarter campaign for its The One Backpack, a 5-in-1 modular backpack that can be used as a camera bag, work & gym pack, suit carry backpack, travel pack or tech-backpack, doing away with the need for multiple single-purpose bags.

  • Sample gallery: Nikon 180-400mm F4E TC1.4 FL ED VR
    on April 20, 2018 at 1:00 pm

    Announced just in time for the 2018 Winter Olympics, the Nikon 180-400mm F4E TC1.4 FL VR has a built in 1.4x teleconverter - when engaged it provides a 252-560mm focal range with an F5.6 max aperture. Similar in design to Canon’s EF 200-400mm F4L IS USM Extender 1.4x, we expect this $12,000 lens to mostly find its way into the hands of working sports, action and wildlife photographers. Though we at DPReview are none of the above, we also weren’t going to pass up an opportunity to give it a try. An exhibition soccer (football) match between two local Seattle colleges provided the perfect chance to shoot with it mounted on the Nikon D5. Set up at the midfield line, the 180-400mm range was enough to effectively cover most game play. But the extra bit of reached provided by the teleconverter allowed me to occasionally punch in on the action when I felt comfortable. And engaging the teleconverter is as simple as flipping a switch near its base - a satisfying quiet […]

    by Amy Davies on April 20, 2018 at 9:18 am

    Alys Tomlinson took home the main prize, while a host of other photographers took home other awards.A handwritten note neatly folded and hidden in the crevice of a rock, crosses etched onto stone, ribbon carefully wrapped around piles of twigs. These are all offerings of religious devotion, known as ‘Ex-Votos’ and found at Christian pilgrimage sites worldwide. Often placed anonymously and hidden from view, pilgrims leave ex-votos as expressions of hope and gratitude, creating a tangible narrative between faith, person and the landscape. Taken at the pilgrimage sites of Lourdes (France), Ballyvourney (Ireland) and Grabarka (Poland), the project encompasses formal portraiture, large format landscape and small, detailed still-lifes of the objects and markers left behind. Shot on 5x4, large format film, the images evoke a distinct stillness and reflect the mysterious, timeless quality present at these sites of great spiritual contemplation. People and landscape merge as place, […]

  • Viral KFC ad campaign turns fried chicken into flames with Photoshop

    New York City-based advertising agency Ogilvy and Mather's latest ad campaign for KFC Hong Kong is on fire... so to speak. Tasked with advertising the release of KFC's Hot & Spicy chicken, the agency created a clever collection of images that morphs the flaky breading and orange tint of crispy chicken into smoke and flames. The clever Photoshop jobs include compositions of the spicy chicken with space shuttles, power rangers (we think?) and a rocket-toting drag racing car, but the concept has taken on a life of its own as all good memes do.

    Have you ever been at a beautiful location and wondered what a photo might look like if you had a model and some lighting equipment on hand? Well, you no longer need to wonder. Los Angeles-baased visual effects studio Surpuba AR has released Photo Studio AR, an app for Android and iOS devices that uses augmented reality (AR) to project a model into any real-world scene you can imagine. The app features a collection of 3D-rendered models, all based off real people. You can pose them in multiple animated positions, change their location in the AR environment, resize them to fit the scene and even switch their outfits (and purchase other 3D models) via in-app purchases. As for lighting, you can add multiple lights and props to the scene to emulate what a particular setup would look like. You can even alter where the artificial sunlight is in the app so that it reflects the Sun’s current position in the sky. Finally, there’s also a built-in recording function so you can save […]

There are many rules about composition and there are a near-infinite number of ways you can arrange a particular landscape scene, even a particularly famous or oft-photographed one. Do you opt for a tried-and-true approach, sticking with something like the rule of thirds? Or, do you get more creative, perhaps try something which breaks photographic conventions?

  • Canon unveils compact, rechargeable IVY Mini Photo Printer
    on April 19, 2018 at 3:43 pm

    Credit: Canon Canon has just released its smallest and lightest printer yet. The IVY Mini Photo Printer is a rechargeable battery-powered portable printer that uses ZINK Zero-Ink technology to create 2x3 prints and stickers of your smartphone photos from anywhere. The printer launches today, and offers some stiff competition to similar instant printers from Polaroid and Fujifilm. Like all the other portable printers on the market, the IVY uses an app to sync with your smartphone. In this case it's the Canon Mini Print App, which has been tricked out with a lot more than just a "print this photo" button. The app allows you to apply filters, frames, AR face distortion, and other photo-editing tools "including added text [...] and the option to draw." If 2x3 is too small for you, the app also allows you to "tile print" images using either four or nine frames to create one larger collage. Alternatively, there are "over ten unique collage templates" you can print onto a single 2x3 sheet. […]

  • GoPro will now accept almost any digital camera for trade-in, even 'destroyed'
    on April 19, 2018 at 2:44 pm

    GoPro has relaunched its Trade-Up program, this time as a permanent option for customers located in the United States. The program first launched last year, but only as a temporary promotion limited to previous-generation GoPro cameras exchanged for discounts on current-generation models. This time around, GoPro is accepting nearly any digital camera in any condition. The company says it will accept any GoPro or non-GoPro digital camera under the program, and that any condition is acceptable, including "destroyed." To participate, customers must use the Trade-Up website to purchase either a Fusion or HERO6 Black, where they'll receive a $50 discount on the HERO6 Black (bringing the price down to $350) and/or a $100 discount on the Fusion (bringing the price down to $600). GoPro provides the customer with a prepaid shipping label to send the company their trade-in camera; once the trade-in is verified, GoPro ships the newly purchased camera to the customer.

You want to be able to create good separation between your subject and the background to help draw your viewer's attention to the subject. However, you don't always have access to the right lens or be able to shoot a lens wide open, so what can you do when you are unable to get the blurred background in camera? You can use Photoshop.

  • Rylo update adds 180° mode, bluetooth capture and motion blur timelapse effect
    on April 19, 2018 at 2:20 pm

    Credit: Rylo The popular Rylo 360° camera—a camera we called the "360 degree camera done right" in our review—is receiving a major update today. The update adds two new features for both iOS and Android users of the Rylo camera and app, with a third feature available only to iOS users for now. Let's take them one by one. 180° Mode The new 180° video mode shrinks the field of view, allowing you to capture 180° video at higher resolution and better image quality than 360° mode allows. According to Rylo, 180° mode "is especially useful for chest-mounted shots or activities/scenarios in which one lens is blocked." Bluetooth Remote Capture The name kind of gives this one away. Remote capture lets you sync your phone to the Rylo camera via bluetooth, which allows you to: switch between recording modes, start or stop a video, and snap a photo, all from the app on your phone. Obviously, this feature will help if you've got the camera mounted somewhere hard […]

    Sony has released the first firmware update for the Sony a7 III—version 1.01—and it was specifically released to solve a "blinking pixel" issue that showed up when recording video footage while using certain settings. The flickering pixels would appear along the base of footage "during XAVC S 4K (PAL 25p) recording (depending on the combination of camera settings)." Additionally, the update resolves a problem that could occasionally make the rear touch screen stop working, and Sony says the camera’s system should run more smoothly with the new firmware as well. For more information and to download V1.01 for yourself, visit this support page on the Sony website. Release Notes ILCE-7M3 System Software (Firmware) Update Ver.1.01 (Windows) Resolves a "blinking pixels" phenomenon at the bottom edge of the image during XAVC S 4K (PAL 25p) recording (depending on the combination of camera settings) Applicable Models This information is for the following models: ILCE-7M3 […]

  • The power of curves in Photoshop for making precise targeted adjustments to your photographs
    by jgray@imaging-resource.com on April 18, 2018 at 8:00 pm

    Curves are immensely powerful in Adobe Photoshop. You can use them to add pop to your images, but did you know you could also use them to precisely target and adjust specific colors and tones in your image? Colin Smith with photoshopCAFE shows us how in the video below. If you'd like to follow along with Smith using the grayscale strip he uses, you can download it by clicking here. The video starts by showing us how curves actually work. Before we get into making adjustments, it's a good idea to work non-destructively. This means... (read more) […]

  • The FlyJacket soft exoskeleton turns your body into a drone controller
    on April 18, 2018 at 6:55 pm

    Researchers with Switzerland's École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) have developed a soft exoskeleton that enables its wearer to control a drone using their upper body. Called FlyJacket, the exoskeleton is a human-robot interface (HRI) that offers "natural and intuitive control of drones," according to the university, enabling inexperienced individuals to operate them. Typical drone controls involve a touchscreen and/or joysticks, which researchers say are "neither natural nor intuitive" for operators. As an alternative, FlyJacket places motion sensors on the operator's body, requiring them to spread their arms like wings (with supports to prevent fatigue) and move their upper body as if they're flying to control the drone, while a VR headset provides a first-person perspective from the UAV's camera. Explaining the usefulness of the technology, the research paper states: The development of more intuitive control interfaces could improve flight […]

  • Rumor debunked: Canon and Profoto will both attend Photokina 2018
    on April 18, 2018 at 6:27 pm

    One of the Canon displays at a previous Photokina. Credit: Photokina Flash maker Elinchrom recently revealed that it would skip Photokina 2018, with company CEO Simon Whittle explaining, "...we feel this is a transitional year for photokina and this break will help Elinchrom to analyze and refocus on what is really important for our customers in the coming years." Starting next year, the event will take place in May instead of September. On the same day as Elinchrom's announcement, DIY Photography said it had been hearing rumors that "big brands," among them Canon and Profoto, may also be skipping Photokina 2018. As DPR stated last week, claims that Canon would skip the event seemed far-fetched from the beginning. A day later, DIY Photography said it had received word from Photokina director Christoph Menke denouncing the rumors, and today Photokina responded more broadly by publishing a list of brands that will officially be attending—among them Canon and Profoto.

  • Sony 'striping': here's the fix
    on April 18, 2018 at 2:00 pm

    Take a look at the PDAF stripes across the female model's face in this image (cropped from an original vertical shot). The bad news is that it looks terrible. The good news? There's a fix. When we published our original Sony a7 III sample gallery, we and our readers had some concern over odd striping artifacts viewable in some images, such as the one above. It's known as 'PDAF striping' and it's not limited to a single camera, or even a single brand. It's likely due to light reflections off the metal masks of on-sensor phase-detect pixels. Masked pixels, as opposed to a split dual-pixel design that obviates the need for metal masks, is to the best of our knowledge a design choice: the approach enables high performance AF even during 10 to 20 fps bursts.1 The unfortunate side effect is the potential - albeit rare - for single pixel stripes in transitions from blown areas to darker ones. Depending on your set of lenses and the kind of photography you practice, you might never see this […]

  • The new JPEG XS image format was built for streaming 4K and VR content
    on April 18, 2018 at 12:00 pm

    There’s a new video compression standard on the block. It’s called JPEG XS, and while it’s made by the same team behind the ubiquitous JPEG image format, it serves a much different purpose. JPEG XS was announced earlier this week by the Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG), headed by École Polytechnique Fédérale De Lausanne (EPFL) professor Touradj Ebrahimi. The mission of this new format isn’t to replace the standard JPEG image standard, but to supplement it by being a low-energy standard for streaming video content via Wi-Fi and 5G cellular networks. According to JPEG, the mission of JPEG XS is to, "stream the files instead of storing them in smartphones or other devices with limited memory." JPEG specifically mentions the benefits of JPEG XS for video captured and streamed by "drones and self-driving cars—technologies where long latency represents a danger for humans."

  • Canon shows off its latest CMOS sensor tech in new promo video
    on April 17, 2018 at 7:50 pm

    Canon isn’t only in the business of making DSLR, mirrorless and point-and-shoot cameras. It’s also in the business of making the CMOS sensors inside those cameras—arguably the most important component. And in order to showcase what its achieved with its latest lineup of CMOS sensors, Canon USA has created a little promotional video. The video showcases a variety of sensors seen across Canon's product line, from the extreme low-light full-frame sensor it showed off earlier this year, to more industrialized CMOS sensors made for surveillance and security purposes. The video description from Canon USA: This video showcases Canon variety of sensors. For several decades Canon has been developing and manufacturing advanced CMOS sensors with state-of-the-art technologies for exclusive use in Canon products. These sensors are a critical driving force behind many of our successful product lines, ranging from consumer products all the way up to high-end business and […]

  • Artificial versus natural light: Which is better for portraiture?
    by jgray@imaging-resource.com on April 17, 2018 at 7:30 pm

    When capturing portraits, one of the first decisions you need to make is what kind of light you want to use. Some photographers prefer using natural light. It's no-nonsense, relatively easy to work with and it can produce excellent results. Other photographers opt instead for using artificial light, oftentimes trying to recreate a somewhat natural look, but with more flexibility than you have when working with available light. After all, the sun doesn't produce great light all the time. Each approach has its pros and cons and are... (read more) […]

  • You can own the world's first single shot 8×10 digital camera for $106,000
    on April 17, 2018 at 7:07 pm

    If you're shooting digital, the largest image sensor you will find at your local camera store is the 53.4mm x 40.1mm medium format sensors inside something like the Phase One IQ3. But if that is just not enough for you... there is one, much larger option. Meet the $106,000 LargeSense LS911: a large format digital camera and purportedly the "world's first 8x10 digital single shot camera for sale." The LS911 is the passion project of Bill Charbonnet, who left his desk job in 2014 to start LargeSense LLC and built these large-format digital cameras. Four years later, the LS911 is his first shipping product. According to the press materials, LS911 features a 12-megapixel 9x11-inch monochrome CMOS sensor (that translates into massive 75 micron pixels), ISO that can be set at either 2100 or 6400, 900GB of internal storage, and the ability to output files to DNG, 16-bit TIFF, 32-bit TIFF, RAW and JPEG formats. There is no CFA, but the monochrome sensor can be used to produce color images (of […]

  • Tokina FíRIN 20mm F2 FE AF lens will ship June 1st, costs $950

    Tokina announced the FíRIN 20mm F2 FE AF—its second prime lens in the premium FíRIN lens lineup for mirrorless cameras—back in February, and we got to see it in person at CP+. But it was only this month that they revealed when the lens would ship, and only earlier today that we finally know the price. According to Tokina itself, the autofocus lens for Sony full-frame mirrorless cameras lens will begin shipping on June 1st; and according to online retailers who finally put the lens up for pre-order today, the price will be $950. There's not much more we can say about the lens that we didn't already reveal in the announcement post and hands-on at CP+. The Fírin 20mm F2 FE AF is simply the autofocus version of Tokina's first high-end Fírin lens. The two lenses share an optical formula, and the addition of AF is simply meant to offer "more options for end-users to choose from according to the purpose and style of shooting."
