Popular photography magazine Shutterbug has announced that it is shutting down its print publication of 45 years, and will focus instead on reaching its audience online as a "web-only publication."
The news was published earlier today by Shutterbug Editor-in-Chef Dan Havlik, who says the media landscape simply cannot sustain a photography print publication any longer. The best way to serve Shutterbug's readers, says Havlik, is by dedicating all of the company's resources towards becoming a "dynamic, web-only publication."
Kodak Alaris has launched a new single-use disposable camera in Europe. Called the Kodak Daylight Single Use Camera, this 800 ISO film camera can be used in low and high outdoor lighting conditions, according to the company, which bills it as an item ideal for parties, weddings, and similar events.
The Kodak Daylight Single Use Camera has a one meter to infinity focal length and 39 total exposures; however, it's worth noting that this camera does not have a flash. The company announced the camera for the European market, and it appears to be available now from Amazon UK for Continue reading "Kodak Daylight Single Use disposable camera launched in Europe"
Computer vision company Lucid and cinema camera maker RED have partnered to create an 8K 3D camera that can capture 4-view (4V) holographic images and video in real-time. The camera is designed to work with RED's upcoming holographic Hydrogen One smartphone—both by shooting holographic content that can be viewed on the phone's 4V screen, and by using the modular phone as a "viewfinder."
The camera itself (which has yet to be named) will be made by RED, but it will be powered by Lucid’s "real-time 3D Fusion Technology." This tech generates 3D/4V footage in real-time, promising to turn
All rumors suggest that Canon and/or Nikon is going to get into the high-end mirrorless interchangeable lens camera market, in some way.
I don't have any insider knowledge of this, or I wouldn't be able to write this, but it looks pretty likely at this point. It also seems pretty likely to me that both brands will do everything to maintain compatibility with their existing lens mounts. Avoiding the need to design a whole new lens range, maximizing the value of the investment in the existing lineup and side-stepping the kind of anger that Canon generated when it abandoned its
Although no exact release date or pricing has been announced yet, it seems the RED Hydrogen One modular smartphone with its holographic display will be available to the masses before long. According to an announcement last week, the phone will be available through two of the United State's largest mobile carriers, Verizon and AT&T, sometime this summer.
An unnamed NASA astronaut stationed on the International Space Station recently ran into an issue during a spacewalk: he forgot to check whether his GoPro camera had an SD card installed before embarking on a spacewalk. We've all been there, right?
The astronaut, who may have been Andrew Feustel, was featured in a spacewalk livestream on NASA's Twitch account last Wednesday. During the livestream, viewers were treated to a brief conversation that started with the astronaut asking, "Hey, Houston, I gotta ask a question about the GoPro real quick." The astronaut explains that he sees a "No SD" warning Continue reading "Video: Astronaut forgets to insert SD card into GoPro before spacewalk"
From 2015 to 2017, filmmaker Miguel de Olaso (AKA Macgregor) and his crew spend many months traveling back and forth on the famed Mauritanian Railway—one of the longest and heaviest trains in the world, the so-called 'Backbone of the Sahara—to document the grueling journey endured by merchants who regularly travel atop this train to transport goods to people living in remote Saharan towns.
The result is a beautifully-executed 12-minute documentary titled The Mauritania Railway: Backbone of the Sahara, which follows the journey of Malick: a 27 year-old merchant who relies on the train for his livelihood, even as

Tamron's 70-210mm F4 Di VC USD is a lightweight, weather-sealed and cost-effective alternative to first-party constant aperture zooms. It's also likely to be used for everything from portraits to action, and we figured we should test out its autofocus chops by aiming it at some muddy motorcycles tearing around a track.
Check out how Tamron's DSLR telezoom does with these fast-moving machines in our updated sample gallery.

The leaked X-T100 is basically an X-A5 with an EVF, 3-way tilting touchscreen, and a deeper buffer.
Fujifilm EU accidentally leaked a complete specs page for an upcoming camera: the Fuji X-T100. The page was discovered by Nokishita and saved for posterity before it was removed, and though none of the sample images or photos of the camera survived, we basically got a rundown of what looks to be a Fuji X-A5 with a few extra features.
Nokishita is a reliable source of leaks, typically publishing accurate specs and even product images a few days to a week before a
At its 2018 I/O developer conference Google presented a number of improvements to its Photos app, but there was no talk about an exciting feature that was demoed the previous year: an object removal tool that automatically removes obstructions like fences, window panes from your photos.
The feature caused quite a buzz when it was demoed in early 2017, and people have been waiting on it ever since... so why has it disappeared? The answer is simpler than you might think. According to an interview with the Google Photos team on XDA, object removal was simply de-prioritized in Continue reading "This is why Google’s impressive object removal tool was never released"
In a bid to clear up online speculation, surprise entrant to the full-frame cinema lens market Nisi has answered some questions about its relationship with brands marketing lenses very similar to its own recently-announced F3 series.
NiSi F3 Cinema Lenses
The company says that it owns the designs of its own lenses as it ‘took ownership’ of them from the ‘now dead’ Bokkeh Bokkelux project. Nisi also claims that it has made changes to the original optical and mechanical designs of the series to make the lenses more reliable, the assembly more accurate, and to reduce their overall
Now that we've completed our review of Panasonic's Lumix DC-ZS200 (TZ200), we've updated its entry in our Best Cameras for Travel, Best Pocketable Enthusiast Cameras and Best Enthusiast Long Zoom Cameras buying guides. We liked the how Panasonic stuffed a 15X zoom into the ZS200's compact body as well as its feature set, though the sharpness of its lens was a disappointment.
Head to our buying guide hub for help finding the right camera by both price and use case.
Dustin Dolby of workphlo is great at creating professional product shots using just one or two speedlights and some compositing in Photoshop. In this tutorial, he combines that approach—it takes just two speedlights to light these bottles, and he could have made due with one—with some simple smartphone light painting to create a dynamic and colorful soft drink product shot.
Here are the four exposures he composited together to light just the bottle. One shot using a stripbox through a diffusion panel on the right, one with a reflector added in on the left, another to light the label, and
Ricoh has released a software development kit (SDK) for Pentax cameras that allows third-party developers to create mobile and desktop apps that can control the camera remotely via USB cable or Wi-Fi.
The wireless package is available for Android and iOS. The USB-version can be downloaded for Microsoft .NET Framework and for C++ (Linux, Windows or MacOS). Both variants offer functions for controlling Pentax’s DSLRs and medium format cameras remotely, including photo and video capture, live view and adjustment of camera settings.
