Along with the LUMIX GX9, Panasonic has announced another camera today. It’s a compact Panasonic LUMIX ZS200 (or TZ200 outside the U.S.). Its compact 4.4″ wide body holds a 1” 20.1 MP sensor. It features a Leica lens with 15x optical zoom, covering a 24-360mm equivalent focal length range. With its portability and versatile zoom, Panasonic promotes this camera as the ideal travel companion.
Panasonic has officially launched LUMIX GX9, a new mirrorless micro four-thirds camera. It packs a lot of great features in a compact body and as Panasonic itself writes, it’s aimed at “amateur photographers wanting a professional experience.”
It features a 20.3 MP sensor, shoots 4K video at 30fps, and allows you to save video frames as 4K photos. Many of the features are aimed at capturing the perfect shot, so it seems that this camera would be ideal for street photographers.
Portrait photography isn’t just about skill. There’s also communication with the models, choosing the right location, gear, and light… So many things to think about. Manny Ortiz shares five things to avoid when photographing people which he has experienced throughout his career. Are you guilty of any of these?
More and more performers are trying to ban smartphones during their concerts and only allow professional photographers to take the shots. However, Kendrick Lamar is taking a different route. He will not ban his fans from using smartphones at his shows – but there will be no professional photographers allowed.
NASA has treated us with plenty of amazing photos from space, and their New Horizons spacecraft has recently captured two record-breaking images. 3.79 billion miles from Earth, the spacecraft snapped photos of Kuiper Belt objects which are now officially the farthest images ever taken by a spacecraft.
The launch of SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy has caused plenty of reactions all over the world. The epic launch has made many of us stand in awe and the photos gave us goosebumps. But, just like all major events, this one has also made many people inspired for creating memes and parodies. My Facebook feed has been flooded with hilarious photo manipulations today, and they’re mainly Slavic (which in my opinion makes them even funnier). I’ve decided to share a couple of them with you, and I hope to bring a smile to your face.
