Tim Wallace is a top-notch photographer, he has shot for McLaren, Peugeot, Lexus, Aston Martin, and a bunch of other global clients. It’s always fascinating to me how some “potential clients” approach Tim Wallace for free work. It fascinates me, even more, when Tim takes the time to converse with them. The result of Tim patiently explaining to the client why he will not work for free is absolutely hilarious. Other than that, it serves as a good reminder to always be aware of your value.
Today though, Chris shares with DIYP readers some of the tests he regularly makes to show how different frame rates affect final footage.
Some of the tests are absolutely stunning, especially when they involve liquids, fire or explosions that are hard to fully see with the naked eye.
Last week we shared that Apple is opening up their specs for using an external flash with iPhone 11. That means that you will be able to use an external flash with the iPhone native camera app. (This is different from, say, Lume Cube’s dedicated app, or Goodx A1).
Now, Power Bank maker, Anker, is the first to make a dedicated flash built on the lighting connector. Here is we know:
A few years back we tested the original Lume Cube vs the Litra torch. We were pretty aggressive and we threw the lights, froze them, and dunked them in water. Since then, Litra advanced to Litra Torch 2.0, and Lume Cube recently released the Lume Cube 2.0. We wanted to revisit our review and see how the two new Action Lights compare. This time though, no lights were hurt during the shooting.
With the holidays only a few days away, I think this project is something you’re all gonna like.
Cosyspeed, the photography funny pack company just announced a new line of products – African lens pouches. Aside from being gorgeous pieces of gear, they are made in a sustainable way. The lens pouches are made in Africa by a local community. That means that when you buy one of these (insanely cheap) lens pouches, you are also providing a job to a young mother.
With the year coming to an end, IO thought it would be interesting to look back on DIYP’s top posts of 2019. I gotta say, its an interesting mix. We have some phot breakdowns like this Stranger Things themed photo and a killer light painting photo. But we also have a few news stories, some of which are showing the controversy and dilemma in the photography industry. We also have a few gear posts representing Canon, Nikon, and DJI. Lastly, there are a few posts that brought a smile to my face, like this hipster who mistakingly claimed that his image was used to tell that all hipsters look the same. Only to realize it was a different hipster in the photo, proving his point.
Enjoy this compilation and let us know what you would like to see here in 2020.
Update: the giveaway has ended, and the winner has been announced. Huge thanks to Sachtler for playing with us.
A few weeks back we did a very stupid thing, we dunked a Sachtler Flowtech 75 in the dead sea. Legs, head and all. Now, Dunking a tripod in saltwater is not clever, but dunking one in the most corrosive waters in the world is just plain stupid. Surprisingly, it performed beautifully after the dip. That’s easy though. If you wanna see how it works two months after, hit the jump. + We are giving one of these beauties away, continue reading to see how you can win one.
If the rumors are correct, Canon is working on an EF/RF hybrid EOS mirrorless camera. Now, Canon Watch suggests that this camera will support a moving sensor. And when they say a moving sensor, they mean a sensor that sits on some kind of rails and can move to adjust between different flange distances.
Remember that about a year and a half ago, Sony confirmed that an A7S III is coming soon. Then Sony announced the Sony A7R IV a year later. (a mark 4 A7R camera before announcing the A7S mark 3? Then nothing? The wait for the highly anticipated Sony A7S III may be over.
Rumors site Sony Alpha Rumors just posted what they claim is the first out-in-the-wild photo of the Sony A7S III.
