There have been a few issues reported with the Nikon Z7’s video capabilities. Talk of banding and pixelation that come as a result of how the Nikon Z7 captures full frame 4K. DPReview has just posted the below test footage, though, shot with the Nikon Z6 and it shows that it’s a very different animal, getting much closer to the Sony A7III in terms of quality.
Although it’s been teased for a few weeks, Zhiyun has now officially announced the new Crane 3 LAB 3-axis motorised gimbal stabiliser, along with complete specs. Lens adjustments have been expanded to include zooming as well as focus, it features a new articulated handgrip, and it can stream 1080p video to your mobile device for remote monitoring and control.
500px has introduced some changes to its web and mobile platforms. According to the company, it should increase the exposure for photographers, but judging from the comments – the photographers don’t seem to be happy with the redesign.
The race to the bottom never seems to end. The latest is a new service claiming to produce marketing photography for as little as $19. Yes, that’s right, photography that normally costs thousands for only nineteen bucks. The service is called Catalog and they’ve raised $1.5 million to kick the business off.

For one reason or the other, all of us delete plenty of photos from our phones while choosing the keepers. If you have an iPhone X, your “deleted” images are not entirely gone. As a result – they may be accessible to hackers. Two researchers have recently found a vulnerability that could let hackers access your images, even if you previously deleted them.
There have been a few reports across Facebook groups, YouTube videos, and various forums across the web on sharpness issues with DJI’s new Mavic 2 Pro. Despite housing a camera branding the Hasselblad name, people aren’t happy. But are things really as bad as they might appear?
Tom David from Tom’s Tech Time puts the new Mavic 2 Pro head to head against the Phantom 4 Pro to see how the two compare. Surely the new Mavic 2 Pro with a Hasselblad camera should beat the pants off the two-and-a-half-year-old Phantom 4 Pro, right? You’d think so.
The Camp Fire, named after the Camp Creek Road where it originated, is the most devastating wildfire in California’s history. Beginning on November 8th, Camp Fire spans more than 138,000 acres. It has decimated at least 8,000 buildings and claimed at least 50 lives with over 200 civilians still reported missing.
NASA has now released some high-resolution satellite images showing the scale of the wildfire. The image above shows Camp Fire in Butte County, California as soon from the Landsat 8 satellite on the morning of November 8th, 2018.
