According to the Australian website, Inside Imaging, the Kodak paper and chemistry business was just sold to a Chinese company, Sino Promise Holdings. Sino is a relatively young company and according to their website, they were established in 1993 and are the largest distributor of Kodak Alaris in the world. According to Inside Imaging, Kodak
[embedded content] Yongnuo seems to have a very unusual approach when it comes to cameras. They’re not the first to launch an Android-powered mirrorless camera. Samsung already did that. But their initial dip into their world of camera manufacture. Their latest camera, and probably the only one to actually be released, is the Yongnuo YN450M.
[embedded content] If you’re still stuck at home and want to practice your photography, particularly small products, you might have been struggling if you don’t have a lot of lighting kit. Product photography often requires a bunch of different light sources to show off its different facets and surfaces. But if you don’t have a
It seems that retro-looking music videos and even short clips on Instagram have been all the rage lately. Sure, you can add a filter to make them look as if they were taken with a VHS camcorder, but as Caleb Pike puts it: “we ALL know it’s not really the same thing.” If you want
Last year, Sekonic put out a questionnaire on their Twitter feed asking if anybody was interested in them looking into the possibility of creating a Godox module for their light meters. It was suggested at the time that the two possible options for a Godox module would be their flagship L-858D and L-478D light meters.
[embedded content] I believe you’ve seen some of those viral fast-paced videos that show you all kinds of “hacks” and “tricks” that don’t really seem like they work. Jessica Kobeissi found one with a bunch of photography “hacks” and she decided to try them out. In this hilarious video, you can see if any of
Photographer Aaron Groen recently came under fire from the photography community. After he shared a photo of a tornado, many praised him for the amazing image that must have been scary to take. However, some photographers claim that the photo is “clearly fake” and “obvious composite” and the whole story quickly blew up. Aaron shared
[embedded content] So, Covid-19 is upon us and we are staying home. Alone. This means that we make a lot of content and meetings in front of a monitor and a webcam. If you are a photographer or a videographer, you know that the lights you use, matter at least as much has your webcam.
It’s been a minute since we’ve heard anything new about Sharp’s interchangeable lens 8K Micro Four Thirds camera, but it looks like they’re trying to take some of the attention away from the upcoming Canon EOS R5 announcement by adding it to the 8K page on their official website They haven’t added a dedicated page
Photographer Drew Gardner recreates portraits of some of the most famous historic figures, but not with just anyone. He photographs their direct descendants and recreates the iconic portraits to the finest details. One of the latest recreations he made was done with Shannon LaNier, a news anchor, an author, and the sixth great-grandson of Thomas
This is probably the dumbest thing I’ve ever read in my life, but Getty Images is apparently going to be the “dedicated in-game sports photographers” for the FIA Certified Gran Turismo Championships. Yes, that’s right, video game screenshots are now “photography”, according to Getty and Polyphony Digital, the developers of Gran Turismo for the Sony
When Smartta announced the original SliderMini camera slider in 2018, we were all quite excited. It was launched on Indiegogo and for what they were selling for, it offered some fantastic features. We eventually got our hands on one and you can read our review of the original here. It’s a product I still receive
Milky Way is such an inspiring subject for everyone who enjoys shooting the night sky. Travel photography blog Capture the Atlas has published their annual selection of the best 25 Milky Way images.

[embedded content] Amongst the tiny form factor cameras, the Insta360 ONE R is pretty unique. It’s the first modular action camera that lets you easily swap out different lens modules and even a 360° module. But what makes them tick? That’s what one of our favourite YouTubers, Strange Parts wanted to find out when he
Modern cameras are pretty damn amazing. Charge the battery, pop in a memory card, attach a lens, switch to auto and you are good to go. Not much more work is needed to start getting decent images. But to get consistently better images you need to turn that dial away from Auto and on to
We’ve all had our frustrations with software over the years, although in the photo and video industry, probably no more so than with Adobe – especially since they switched to the subscription model and forced updates. It’s not that Adobe’s software sucks – if it did, it wouldn’t be as popular as it is –

Location scouting is one of the important parts of a photo shoot. There are a few ways to do it and in this video, Walid Azami suggests for of them. They’re all very efficient, but don’t come without some drawbacks. Walid reflects on both the good and the bad sides and gives you a whole
You’ve been into photography for a while, you’ve upgraded your skills, and it’s time to upgrade your gear. If you ask me, that’s always exciting, but it can also be stressful: what should you upgrade first? In this video, Scott Choucino discusses this topic and helps you choose between your lens, camera, light, or modifier.
Panasonic has announced its new G100 camera (G110 in some regions) and it offers some very interesting features – like Nokia’s OZO Audio technology which allows the camera to listen to sound from every direction to pick out and record only what you want it to capture. It’s not perfect, though. In fact, there are
Every so often a photoshoot comes along that both excites you and terrifies you at the same time, and today’s article is about one such instance. When I was in college, and more specifically in Russian History 401 at ASU, I got a phone call and had to leave class, much to my teachers chagrin.

Venus Optics, the company behind Laowa, has announced three new cine lenses. They are the Laowa 7.5mm T2.1 Cine for Micro Four Thirds, the Laowa 9mm T2.9 Zero-D Cine for Super35 and the Laowa 15mm T2.1 Zero-D Cine for “large format” (full-frame) video-capable cameras.

It looks like Canon’s announcement is coming on July 9th, according to Canon Rumors and not July 2nd as previously speculated. But we’re not just going to hear about the new Canon EOS R5 and EOS R6 mirrorless cameras. Oh no, we’re going to be getting all of those RF lenses and the two Teleconverters
[embedded content] Gear shootouts pop up on YouTube all the time, usually touting the benefits of this bit of kit over another. But this particular video doesn’t do any of that. Instead, this “shootout” is a bit more literal, with a little gang warfare using weaponised cameras and a not-entirely-unexpected twist at the end. It
Sigma has today officially unveiled the new Sigma 100-400mm f/5-6.3 DG DN OS Contemporary lens, their first ultra-telephoto lens designed specifically for full-frame mirrorless cameras.

Adobe has released their June update for the Creative Cloud, which they says is the biggest feature update since the Adobe MAX conference in November 2019. It brings some new selection tools to Photoshop, particularly suited to cutting out people and hair, rotatable patterns, font matching, and more for the desktop, as well as a
This is an interesting one. It’s not uncommon these days for companies to feel they can just take that which does not belong to them and then use it for their own commercial gain, particularly when it comes to appropriating images. But after one photographer claims car manufacturer, Volvo stole his images, he’s fighting back,
[embedded content] I don’t shoot much in the studio anymore, but when I used to, I had quite a few different backdrops. They were a pain to store because if you just lie the rolls down on the ground or a shelf horizontally (the most convenient way to store them), they’ll typically develop a “flat
