DJI’s last two iterations of Osmo Mobile handheld gimbal for smartphones have been pretty popular. But like most smartphone gimbals, they can be a bit big when not in use, not that easy to transport. So, for the new Osmo Mobile 3 announced today (nope, it wasn’t a drone announcement), DJI has gone foldable. As well as being physically smaller than the Osmo Mobile 2, the price is a little smaller, too, at only $119 for the basic package.
If there’s one thing most Lightroom users agree about, it’s that the program could use a speed boost. In its latest announcement, Adobe introduces GPU-accelerated editing in Lightroom Classic and Camera Raw. It should make the editing process smoother and make the programs faster and more responsive.
One of the things I love the most about DIY projects is that they can give a new life to the items that are destroyed beyond salvation. In this video, Matthew Perks of DIY Perks will show you how to repurpose a broken LCD TV or monitor and turn it into an amazing LED light panel. It almost perfectly simulates daylight, and it’s useful for photographers as well as filmmakers.
Canon has issued a global security advisory relating to Canon digital cameras which feature the Picture Transfer Protocol (PTP) communication system. It’s a pretty long list of 32 cameras, including popular DSLRs like the 5D Mark III, 5D Mark IV, 6D and 6D Mark II, as well as their full-frame mirrorless cameras, the EOS R and EOS RP.
The DJI Spark was announced in July 2017, and many felt it was a little underwhelming, especially since the DJI Mavic Air was announced just six months later in January 2018. The price point of the Mavic Air made it clear that this was not a Spark replacement, but it did make the shortcomings of the Spark more noticeable.
The DJI Spark 2 was expected to be announced at some point last month, but that announcement was rumoured to be delayed. Now reports suggest that the Spark replacement might actually an entirely new line of drone. The Mavic Mini.
It’s not a secret that food photographers use plenty of tricks to make the food look more appetizing in photos and videos. And some of those are even pretty nasty, making the food inedible. But is it always like that? And do food photographers really use all those tricks for their shoots? In this video, food photographer Scott Choucino debunks some myths of those (in)famous food photography tricks we’ve all heard of.
Do you remember what it was like when you first started learning how to use Photoshop? Aaron Nace of PHLEARN has shared a beautiful video which shows what it looks like when a pro teaches a newbie to use this program. What makes it extra fun is that Aaron’s student is his mom, and she uses Photoshop to edit one of Aaron’s childhood photos. It’s not just fun and heartwarming to watch, but it could remind you of your beginnings either as a learner or a teacher of Photoshop.
If there’s one certainty when it comes to shooting video, it’s that at some point, you’ll want to pick up an external monitor of some kind. One big problem that many of them have, though, is that they can be quite difficult to see outdoors when it’s bright. I’ve tried a few from different brands over the years, but when it comes to bang for your buck, one company that’s pretty tough to beat is Feelworld.
For the past few weeks, I’ve been using Feelworld’s newest super bright 2,200 nit 7″ Feelworld FW279 monitor, now that the sun’s starting to make brief appearances here in Scotland. And so far, I really like it.
I guess we all know that most of the stuff on Instagram is fake: likes and followers, travels, faces and bodies, even pancakes! So it’s probably not a surprise that a young woman recently posted a fake hiking photo which was taken in her own backyard. But what makes it funny is that she got busted for it by her own sister.
Last week, street photographer Joshua Rosenthal visited the Ventura County Fair in Ventura, California. Since he is, well, a street photographer, he used the opportunity to take some candid portraits of people at the fair. When he woke up the following day, he saw something extremely unsettling: photos of him were shared across Facebook, along with vicious and disturbing accusations from local vigilantes.
