Well, this is new. Created by Germany-based landscape photographer Christian Möhrle, what we have here is Infrascapes. Made from around 20,000 images shot over the course of 4 months of his free time, this may just be the world’s first 8K infrared timelapse.
Well, we weren’t sure that it was going to happen, but Yongnuo has released their YN50mm f/1.4 lens for Nikon F mount. The lens was released originally released in EF mount for Canon back in March. But now Nikon users get to have a play. It’s essentially identical to the Canon version in every way except for the mount, which has added a few grams to the weight, too.
Leica has a long history with documentary photography. And it’s often in places where you need to be as quiet and inconspicuous as possible. To help aid in that, Leica today announces the Leica M10-P with its “almost inaudible” mechanical shutter. The observant ones amongst you will also notice that it doesn’t have the proud red dot branding, either.
Today, Insta360 has announced the new Insta360 Pro 2, an update to its professional 8K 360° camera, the Insta360 Pro. While the original Insta360 Pro is a somewhat formidable camera, the Insta360 Pro 2 takes a few things up a notch or two. The new Insta360 Pro 2 comes with higher bitrates, better streaming and monitoring options, wider colour range and proxy file creation.
Lenses are an integral part of photography or filmmaking. Well, unless you’re using a pinhole camera. But field of view, focal length, and crop factors can be confusing for newer photographers. This video from The Basic Filmmaker goes over the basics of what they all mean and how to convert “focal length equivalency” for non-full frame sensors.
Ring lights are a big love-hate thing in the world of photography. Some people are actually quite passionate about the catchlight it can present in a subject’s eyes – believing that there’s only one way to use a ring light. But ring lights can produce some wonderful light on your scene, especially when used off-camera.
And that’s how this giant ring light is intended to be used. Inspired by Oscar-winning DP, Roger Deakins, Todd at Shutterstock shows us how to build our own in this video. It’s fairly straightforward to do if you’re comfortable with basic tools.
The whole issue of privacy in a public place seems to keep coming up. People want their privacy, I get that. But they want it in public places, where everybody else can see. While privacy advocates might object to cameras being pointed anywhere near their general direction, they seem to forget they are seen by potentially hundreds of CCTV cameras a day.
One festival company, Haarlem Culinair, thinks they’ve found a solution, though. They’ve come up with a pretty ingenious opt-out scheme for festival-goers. Stick a great big red dot on your forehead.
Although Samyang have been making manual focus F Mount lenses for a while now, their autofocus efforts seem to have been elsewhere. And while Sony and Canon might have drawn all of Samyang’s attention in the past, it looks like that’s changing.
Today, Samyang has announced the new Samyang AF 14mm F2.8 F for Nikon F Mount. Yes, their first entry into the world if Nikon autofocus is a 14mm ultrawide full frame lens. A lens that has the entire world in focus once you’ve focused more than 5ft in front of you.
Since Adobe switched from perpetual licenses to a subscription model, I’ve been trying to make my photo and video workflow as Adobe-free as possible. As a result, I don’t use Lightroom. So I never really had a need for the original Loupedeck.
But when the announcement came for the Loupedeck+ with support for Skylum Aurora HDR and Capture One, and more software support coming in the future, I thought it was time to take a more serious look at it. I’ve been using the Loupedeck+ for a few weeks now, and I think it’s safe to say that it’s won me over.
With as much as Samsung gives Apple a hard time in its promotional material, Apple fans will probably get a chuckle over this one. Samsung has, apparently, been using stock images from Getty to show off the capabilities of the Samsung Galaxy A8 front camera.
Samsung Brazil has been found to have downloaded and used at least two stock images to show off the Galaxy A8’s capabilities. Uncovered by Twitter user “feliperas“, screenshots showing the Samsung tweets alongside the Getty listing for the image were posted.
