Oceanographer and engineer Derya Akkaynak from MIT has developed an algorithm that “removes water” from underwater images. As a result, it makes the underwater world look exactly as if we would see it on dry land. And it’s not only useful for scientists. For us “common folks,” it’s amazing to see the underwater world in a completely new context.
Fast portable SSD storage has really kicked off over the last year or two. We’ve seen Samsung, G-Technology, Glyph and more releasing SSDs offering some pretty crazy transfer speeds.

This is a feature that Atomos Sumo19 owners have been waiting a long time for. But now Atomos has released the AtomOS 9.2 update for the Sumo 19 allowing you to record four different camera signals, mix them in realtime, and output five separate recordings simultaneously.
Atomos calls the feature “Touch and Switch”, and if you have no idea what the big deal is, we spoke with Atomos Founder & CEO Jeromy Young about it, amongst other things, recently at IBC 2019 in Amsterdam.
Skylum has come a long way since the Macphun days. Since breaking out of their Mac-only shell and expanding out into Windows, their software has come on leaps and bounds for both platforms in terms of both capabilities as well as performance. We caught up with Skylum CEO, Alex Tsepko, at PhotoPlus 2019 in New York last month to have a chat about the new features coming to Luminar 4.
iPhone users have noticed a pretty worrying and creepy bug while using Facebook on their phones. It seems that the app was accessing the camera while they were watching videos or looking at photos on their News Feed. A number of users noticed a glitch and then discovered that their camera had been running in the background without their knowledge.
DSLR vs mirrorless debate aside, the Nikon D750 is a fantastic camera for what it costs (especially now). It’s been one of their most popular models of DSLR since its initial launch, and I still see people buying them regularly today. But the D750 is getting a little long in the tooth now.
The Nikon D750 was announced in 2014, and I was already hearing rumours of a replacement model as early as 2016 at Photokina. In the three years since then, it’s been pretty much radio silence when it came to a D750 replacement, but now Nikon Rumors has posted a list of possible specs, with a release date set for some time in 2020.
Some wild animals are so incredibly cute that you just want to pick them up and hug them. Many of us know that it’s not good for them, but more and more tourists in Costa Rica ignore this and pick up animals to take selfies. Due to an increased number of selfies that people take with wild animals, the Costa Rican Tourism Institute started a campaign to stop people from doing it.
Instagram has launched a new feature for its users in Brazil, and it reminds a whole lot of TikTok’s best-known features. The new tool is called Reels, and it’s focused on short, creative video clips. It lets you shoot them, edit them, add music and adjust their speed. And if you use TikTok, then you know that this is very similar to its “Duet” feature.

Now, PolarPro is stepping things up a notch with a whole new filter system designed for landscape photographers and higher-end cinema shooters with their new Summit filter system and Basecamp matte box system.
