After some pretty detailed leaks, GoPro has now officially launched Hero 7, their latest action camera. Or better to say: three cameras. The Hero 7 comes in Black, Silver and White version, and each of them has different specs and expectedly – different prices.
Many were hoping for more announcements from Sony today, but as rumoured, it’s just the lens. So while there’s no new high-end APS-C or a Sony A7SIII yet, at least the lens is now official as Sony announces the new 24mm f/1.4 GM lens for full frame Sony E Mount. Manny Ortiz has had the chance to have a play with one and gives us the rundown in this hands-on review.
It’s been a while since we’ve seen a new lens from Swiss lens company, Irix. In fact, while they’ve been adding a lot to their Edge filter system, we haven’t seen a new lens since Photokina 2016 when they showed off the 45mm f/1.4 – a lens that still doesn’t exist.
But it looks like they’re teasing a new one for an announcement at Photokina 2018, though. At least, that’s what these three short videos suggest. All we really know is that it’s called “Dragonfly”, but it might be a 150mm macro lens.
We released Halide 1.9 on Monday, with a powerful new feature called Technical Readout. Reviewers with advance access to the iPhone XS have been kind enough to share these readouts with us, detailing several camera hardware specs.
After some analysis, we can now give you an overview of what’s new in the iPhone XS camera hardware and its technical capabilities beyond what Apple stated at their keynote.
Note that these are the hardware specs — Apple focused strongly on software enhancements like Smart HDR and the new Portrait mode, which are not covered by the technical specifications.
Skip to the end for the comparison table.
A new image has leaked of Sony’s new 24mm f/1.4 GM lens. It’s expected to be officially announced at some point later today. Although this may be all that Sony announces today, so if you were hoping for the rumoured 135mm or high end “Mini A9” APS-C camera, you’ll probably be disappointed.
If there’s one thing about camera bags and cases, it’s that we never seem to have enough. Like the cameras they contain, they just build up and multiply over time. We justify the collection of bags and cases by saying that each has a different purpose. That they’re all used when shooting in different circumstances.
And while “the perfect camera bag” can never exist, there can be perfect examples of particular types of bags for each of those different circumstances. And when circumstances call for a roller case, the Lowepro PhotoStream SP 200 comes pretty close.[Read More…]

The announcement of Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless camera got many photographers excited, while the others were disappointed. In his latest video, Tony Northrup tested the Canon EOS R compared to some of its biggest competitors: the Canon 5D Mk IV, Canon 6D Mk II, Sony a7 III, and Sony a7R III. Take a look at the video and see how Canon’s full-frame mirrorless stacks up against competition in terms of image quality.
Joanne ‘Jojo’ Capestro managed to escape the World Trade Center’s North Tower on 11 September 2001, leaving the building only moments before it collapsed. While she was shocked and covered in thick white dust, photographer Phil Penman captured her in a powerful, heart-wrenching image. But 17 years later, the same photographer was there to witness a joyous event in Capestro’s life – the day when she married a love of her life.
“I Bloom For You” is another one of the artworks in series “I Found The Silence”. The idea was created in June 2018, followed by 3 months of planning. The main inspiration was to escape beyond the limits of everyday existence, somewhere where a man can be himself. Escape to a place, where we meet ourselves in the purest way possible.
On the photograph, as well as the whole series, appear elements of nature. On this particular artwork, it is the flowing river of flowers as the symbolism of freedom. Our own liberation, that should never be taken from us. In times the society we are living in, is constantly trying to hold us back, criticize and limit us. We are judging individuals by our own tied up rules.
