Nikon Rumors is reporting feedback from somebody who’s actually handled the new Nikon Z mirrorless cameras and confirmed a few things. They got their mitts on the new cameras during a closed-door event last week in Asia. This is what they had to say.
It goes without saying that there are many genres of photography and many kinds of photographers. In this amusing video, Antti Karppinen tries to demonstrate what some of them act like. He focused on displaying 30 different types of photographers and the ways they look while taking photos. So, let’s see, can you recognize yourself?
It’s going to be interesting to see who gets the most attention on August 23rd. Will it be Nikon, with their two new mirrorless cameras? Or will it be DJI, who we expect to announce a couple of new Mavic 2 drones?
DJI has just published a teaser video to its YouTube channel. The beginning shows a section of what could be one of the new Mavic 2 models, with the date at the end of the video showing… Yes, you guessed it, August 23rd. Nikon Mirrorless day (I’m calling it that, you don’t have to).
The Lofoten archipelago is one of the most photographed regions in Norway. Its images have flooded the social media in the last couple of years – certainly, both you and I have seen them. And at some point, both you and I have been dreaming of visiting either Lofoten or other places we have seen in the form of breathtaking imagery.
Pancake editing is a term I’ve heard a few times lately, but not something I’ve really started to look into until recently. It’s essentially an editing workflow designed to help speed up your editing process while keeping things more organised.
In this video, video editor Piotr Toczyński walks us through his pancake editing process. And, no, it has nothing to do with maple syrup.
When you’re flying with photo gear, it’s a pretty slow process to have all your cameras, lenses and other stuff scanned separately. But here is some good news: Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is currently testing new scanners that will allow you to all electronics gear in your carry-on luggage and go through the airport security without so much fuss.
Since Micron sold memory card brand, Lexar to Longsys in China, people have been wondering what’s going on. Will they still keep making those favourite Lexar products? Will they bring out a new range? Or will they just take Lexar’s intellectual property, apply it to other products and not make memory cards at all?
Well, now it seems that we have our answer. Longsys has put out a statement saying that Lexar will be back in “full production” and shipping globally by the autumn.
The Terror Attack in Barcelona on 17 August 2017 took lives of fifteen people. Among them, there was a sweet and charming Australian boy Julian Cadman. A year after the terrible event, Karen Alsop and her team behind The Heart Project created a heartbreaking tribute for this 7-year-old boy Marvel fan who lost his life in the tragedy. Using phone photos provided by his parents, Karen created an Avengers-style movie poster to pay an honor to little Julian.
So there are a couple of different ways to use drones to light paint. Some people will attach Lumecubes to their drone and paint an environment with them or will fly a drone around the sky or an object and have the drones lights creating images in the sky. However, there is another way to use them that isn’t widely used yet. That is using the drone’s camera to capture light painting from above.
Drones are becoming more and more popular these days and it’s not too expensive to buy one and play with its possibilities.
I’m a great fan of prime lenses. They are faster and sharper than zooms (at least the zooms that I can afford). Plus, they force me into being more creative and they bring out my problem-solving side, because they limit me with their fixed focal length. When I travel, I always bring them and pack a kit lens just in case. I almost never use it.
But recently, I was forced to travel light. And I mean, super-light: I was only able to bring one lens attached to my camera body. I love primes and almost always use them – but this time I screwed a kit lens onto my Nikon D7000. The lens is a Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G and it’s rather crappy when compared to my primes. But in this article, I’ll explain why I chose it and why, sometimes, your kit lens may actually be the best choice.
