While you’d think that the Profoto will nuke the AD600, this was not the case at all, and in most parameters it either won the battle or stood up fairly well. There was one exception to that, and I think that it’s one of the main reasons that the B1 is so0 much more expensive.
Datacolor has just announced a big software upgrade to their current line of monitor calibration tools – the Spyder5PRO+ and Spyder5ELITE+, which go with their Spyder5 product family. We reviewed those here.
Ahead of the public release, I had a chance to test out the new software and I think that Spyder5 users are going to be pretty excited about a some of the new features unlocked with the Spyder5 Elite+

Nikon’s KeyMission 360 camera landed with a fair bit of hype when it was first announced in January. A real camera manufacturer was getting into the 360° market. A company with a hundred years of photographic history. Then after delays in release due to earthquakes, the KeyMission 360 was re-announced, along with two more 80° and 170° cameras.
I got to see the KeyMission 360 in person twice this year, at The Photography Show in March, and at Photokina a couple of months ago, but they wouldn’t let us get our hands on them to try them out for ourselves. With all three cameras now out in the wild, the reviews are starting to come in. After watching this video review from iPhonedo, it’s not looking great for Nikon.
Recently I had the opportunity to test the new Fuji X-T2.
At start, it was only possible to do some tests with natural light and mainly in the street. Although it is not the kind of environment I use to photograph, this first test had as main objective to serve only as the first contact with the equipment, so that in a second test, which I intend to do soon in concert, im already slightly familiar with the menus and buttons Of the X-T2.
This text is not meant to be a technical text, I am no expert in engineering and certainly the Fuji engineers must have their reasons for deciding to build the X-T2 as it is, in this text I will only share what I found of the X-T2 and what I felt when I photographed with it.
My intention with this test, and with the test in concert photography, is to verify if the X-T2 is a valid option to replace my Canon equipment, at least for concert photography. I like Canon and I am very used to the brand, but as Canon Portugal has decided to close the official service of the brand in Porto, thus abandoning its customers, I can not and do not want to be subject to mailing my equipment to repair In Lisbon by a repair company that I do not know …
It should be noted that Fuji has the official technical service for Portugal and Spain based in Oporto.
How does one begin to give a first glance on the supposed Photoshop Killer that is Affinity Photo? I’m a windows guy, and wanted to test it ever since it was announced. Finally, there is a windows beta out there that I could download for free and take it for a spin. I’ve decided to keep this as focused as possible in order to be both useful and friendly to your time.
Like most manufacturers, DJI tests its products before they go out the door to ensure as much as possible that they’ll work as intended. They can’t find every fault, but if they do spot an issue, they can remedy it before it’s sold. Unlike most products, most of DJIs can record video. Testing those recording features, and drone gimbals means they have to shoot footage.
Occasionally, some of that footage slips through the cracks and gets shipped out to users. I’ve built drones before, but I think if I had to build them all day long, and only be involved in one small step of the process, I’d probably end up as bored as this guy.
There’s nothing better than receiving an email with a $2500 paycheck attached to it out of the blue.
That was my cut of a settlement that Pixsy was able to secure on my behalf from a single unauthorized use of one of my photos.
If you’ve ever had one of your photos published without a license (and who hasn’t), I am going to try to explain why and how you can get paid (in cash not credit) for the unauthorized use of your creative work.
The One Plus 3 smartphone amazed me in many way. Since the introduction of the first model, the One Plus One (that I’ve reviewed here), the company focused on producing a stellar device on budget. The first iteration was a very good product even if it suffer from some young problems (like the LCD touch problems). The second iteration last year was good but not as good as we were expecting.
With the arrive of the One Plus 3, it seams that the company bring here with us all the best we can have inside one Android smartphone: unibody metal construction, a beautiful 5,5 Full Hd screen, top performance thanks to the Snapdragon 820 with 6 gigabyte of ram, dual Sim support and 64 Gigabyte of memory (not expandable). At the price of 399€ this bevice is a bargain.
I’m a professional wedding photographer and I use my cameras at least 1-3 times a week. Often for 10-12 hours a day and in quite challenging conditions. They get thrown about, knocked, and occasionally dropped (whoops!) I hope this review of the Canon 5D Mark IV gives you a little insight in to the camera, what it can do, what it can’t do and whether it suits your needs. I won’t be covering anything scientific. No test charts, graphs or sensor tests. There are plenty of other great resources for those topics.
Below you will find a menu of topics. I have photographed quite a few weddings and an engagement shoots with the 5D MKIV so feel I have a pretty good grasp of the camera. Whilst I don’t consider myself to be a ‘gear head’ I’ve been waiting to replace my 5D3’s for an awfully long time. As such I’m quite excited – hence the 5D Mark IV review.
