Godox’s range of lithium-ion powered speedlights have been incredibly popular since they were first introduced. The original V850 and V860 speedlights were an instant hit. They had great recycle times with a lot of battery capacity to keep going all day. Followed up by the V850II and V860II with built in 2.4Ghz receivers that have proven equally popular.
Then they announced the TT350 – A smaller form factor speedlight that many opt to use on their hotshoe as a commander. But the TT350 uses AA batteries, like the TT600 and TT685 (AA powered version of the V850II and V860II respectively). Now, though, Godox has launched a lithium-ion powered version of the TT350, known as the V350.
Fujifilm’s new compact camera, the Fujifilm XF10, is a tiny little camera with a great big sensor. The ultralight compact boasts a relatively massive APS-C sized CMOS sensor. That sensor shoots a respectable 24.2MP resolution stills, and mostly useless 4K video for up to 30 minutes along with 1080p at up to 60fps.[Read More…]
It looks like 360° cameras and content is starting to evolve. As companies have realised that 180° 3D content is far more useful to viewers than fully 360° surround content, the two worlds are starting to merge into one. As are the cameras with which we create them. We saw it recently with the announcement of the Kandao QooCam.
Now the new 5.7K Vuze XR by HumanEyes also combines both 360° and 180° 3D content creation into a single unit. It contains a pair of hinged sensors & lenses. When you want to shoot 360°, you close them up, and when it’s time for 180° 3D, you open them up to face both cameras forward.
Fujifilm is finally getting some long fast glass for its X series of cameras. Announced today, the Fujifilm XF 200mm f/2 OIS WR Lens with XF 1.4x TC F2 WR Teleconverter. Offering a full frame equivalent field of view to a 300mm lens, this is the longest Fuji X system lens by a long shot.
Also announced today is a new wide zoom, the Fujifilm XF 8-16mm f/2.8 R LM WR. Also designed for the Fuji X series, this lens offers a 12-24mm full frame equivalent field of view.
Most of us would think that creating images that look like they’re out of this world would take a lot of Photoshop magic. However, John Dykstra is an artist and surrealist photographer from Michigan who does it all in-camera. He uses his garage as a studio and adds simple props to create optical illusions and capture them in mind-boggling images.
External GPUs have become a big thing for MacBook and other laptop users lately. With limited internal graphics, an external GPU can speed up your workflow tremendously – although it does kind of defeat the portability of it being a laptop.
The recently announced Blackmagic eGPU, sold exclusively by Apple, might not be the best option, though, unless you’re only planning to use DaVinci Resolve. As this review from photoshopCAFE shows, it’s not so great with anything else.
Both black and white and color photography have their charm, but it takes some skill to master when and how to shoot or edit in black and white.

These tips will help you brush-up your skills, and Jamie also shares plenty of example images to illustrate his points.
Light made big news when they announced the L16 back in 2015. A crazy handheld camera that was actually 16 cameras in one. Not much bigger than a smartphone it threatened the end of DSLRs. The sample images looked very impressive, but when it got into peoples hands, they were entirely underwhelmed. It didn’t kill DSLRs.
But people did take notice. People at companies like Leica Camera AG and SoftBank Vision Fund, who have now invested $121 million in the unconventional camera company. It’s an interesting, but not an illogical investment for Leica. The merging of their hardware knowhow and Light’s software expertise could be a perfect combination.
We have certainly seen all kinds of dangerous stunts for the sake of photography. A recent video published by New York Post shows one of the crazies I’ve seen so far. Underwater photographer Ken Kiefer took three models to crocodile-infested waters for underwater shots – and the women got face to face with the fierce animals. What’s more, the team even used lionfish to lure the beasts near the models.
