Nikon seems to be the champion of “trickle-down features”. What does that mean? Over the ~4 generations of Nikon DSLRs that have come out in the past decade or so, Nikon has had the habit of taking flagship features from their high-end pro cameras, and putting those features in the more affordable model cameras. When the Nikon D300 came out along side the flagship D3, it was a $1800 camera with roughly the same autofocus system as a $5,000 camera.
Canon has just announced their next generation of Rebel DSLR camera bodies, the EOS T5i and the EOS SL1. Both cameras are built around a brand-new 18 megapixel sensor, which implies that the image quality will be noticeably better than both the 7D and the 60D.
Joe’s blog is always choc full of great lighting BTS posts, complete with explanations of the lighting setups, obstacles that arose and how he combated them, and plenty of straight-talk on self-critique and tips for making sure your photos rock!
The wedding industry likes to come together and party once or twice a year, it seems. (*cough* WPPI *cough*) This is odd because much of the industry, in reality, has a kind of “lone wolf” mentality when it comes to the boutique, one-man-show business model.
Here is something totally awesome! Wired Magazine contracted Art Streiber to do a Star Wars themed photo shoot that is storyboarded by comedian Chris Hardwick, a self-proclaimed die-hard Star Wars fan.
Well folks, Mirrorless has done it again. It has taken a digital photography concept that used to be obscenely large, heavy, and expensive, …and miniaturized it for just $499.
Sometimes as a landscape photographer, your images and your vision don’t match perfectly. Especially when you’re shooting in RAW and processing in Adobe Camera Raw, a serene and beautiful sunset can wind up looking pretty drab on your computer because of how flat Adobe’s initial defaults are.
This actually happens quite a lot, in fact many of Nikon’s rebates are almost perpetual throughout the year. However these most recent Nikon rebates were pretty significant compared to in the past, and so it is with much excitement that I can share this good news with you! Nikon’s awesome rebates are continuing until the end of this month, (almost) …March 30th.
The pixels are 19 microns square, which is 7.5x times the size of a regular full-frame 35mm DSLR sensor such as in the Canon 1DX. That’s what you get when you design a full-frame sensor dedicated exclusively to 1080p video capture! Apparently, this thing can make the light of a full moon look like broad daylight.
Nikon has come out with three new items today, one full-frame telephoto zoom, and two compact P&S cameras with some interesting features… The 80-400mm AFS-G VR has been long-awaited, and for that matter so has a DX-format Nikon P&S camera!
When the Nikon D7100 was announced, I was definitely impressed by pretty much every one of it’s features. Namely, this is by far the most affordable camera body to EVER have flagship autofocus, of any DSLR manufacturer ever.
You know me, I’m always inspired by how common photography concepts turn into beautiful, creative projects. As a photographer who has been clicking photos for at least a decade now, I often dismiss the casual, everyday types of photos and just snap them un-ceremoniously without a second thought. Well, here’s something fun! A photo project based on the simple concept of, well, the photographer’s girlfriend leading them around by the hand. Around the world, that is! Check out these amazing images…
