One would think that with a surname like “Click”, a person might be more sympathetic toward photographers, especially when that person is also Assistant Professor of Mass Media at the University of Missouri.
Some of you will remember the story from November last year, of Dr. Melissa Click’s tussle with journalists attempting to interview and photograph students during a protest on the campus.
Each volume contains 3632 pages, and represents a look through the colour scheme of each of the three different colour channels; Red, Green and Blue.
According to Israeli company, Corephotonics, while mobile sensor resolution increases, the effective resolution and image quality of cameras in mobile devices remains relatively low.
Although the technology is improving with each new generation of smartphones that gets released, as well as other oddities, things like motion blur, lack of optical zoom, low light performance and focus issues still plague these devices.
These are the problems which Corephotonics has been looking to overcome, and they think they’ve found the answer with a twin lens configuration and some fancy software.
With all the gear announcements lately, it’s easy to miss a relatively small name like Godox, but they’ve just announced some updates to their popular Lithium-ion powered range of flash units, and their QT600 studio strobes.
The big news here is that Godox have also added Sony TTL to the Godox X series of 2.4Ghz radio triggers and radio enabled flash units.
Sigma have just announced a new top dog in their flash line up in the form of the EF-630 Electronic Flash.
This unit adds to the previous model, the EF-610, by offering more power, covering a wider zoom range of 24-200mm that taps out at 17mm with the built-in Wide Panel, and automatic zoom when mounted on top a DSLR.

Taking some rather ordinary images, as well as some exceptionally good ones, he creates amazing posters that wouldn’t look out of place on the walls of your local movie theatre.
As some of the devices we use as photographers start to get smaller and less obtrusive, so do their storage formats. While their physical size is getting smaller, however, the data they’re collecting and recording becomes more demanding.
Going from basic stills to 720p, then to 1080p, and now with 4K starting to become standard in many new devices being released, they’re becoming more demanding than ever.
The days of smaller storage formats like microSD being relegated to simply storing contacts in your mobile device are long gone.
