Rumored Nikon D4s Details

The Nikon D4s seems to be all the buzz lately.  Nothing is official yet, but rumors are going around that match up across multiple sources. Nikon displayed the new D4s body at CES this year and since then we have been able to find some rumored information about the camera and what is to come.  Officially, we are told that the D4s will include a new image processor and “more advanced autofocusing performance”.  Which both, in themselves, are great announcements.  [more]

You probably know that getting your uploads to look sharp on screen, in print and on social media goes beyond resizing. Now, resizing is incredibly important in order to retain the optimum quality for sites such as Facebook, but there is an element far deeper than that and it is not often discussed. This is the secret to getting your images looking “sharper” no matter the medium.  [more]

Photography Clients Are Still Willing To Pay A Premium For Unique Work

Last summer we flew Mike Kelley, one of my favorite architecture photographers, to Charleston for 3 weeks to film the 8 hour tutorial How To Photograph Real Estate, Architecture and Interiors . Mike’s technique of light painting and compositing is so polished and time consuming that I assumed no Realtor would actually want to pay for it. I was wrong. [more]

How To Clean Dust Off Your DSLR Sensor: Sensor Gel Stick

Over time every DSLR will collect dust on its CMOS or CCD sensor; there really isn’t anyway around it. Cleaning your own camera’s sensor with liquid wipes or other wet processes has always been a bit risky. Luckily the Sensor Gel Stick is a safe and easy product that top manufacturers like Leica, Nikon, and Canon have been using in their own factories for years. Now YOU can use it too! [more]

Photographer Simulates Vintage Lenses Through Modern DSLR

A while ago we wrote about the Kickstarter project aimed at bringing the historic Petzval Lens to modern day 35mm DSLRs. Shortly after another Kickstarter was launched to bring this Petzval to the medium format crowd. While off the shelf options such as these can appeal to the masses there remain a few inventive photographers such as Dr. Dirk HR Spennemann who prefer to mix their passion for photography and history with some good old ingenuity to bring us a project simply called “The Antique Camera Simulator”.

The Fstoppers Nikon DF Camera Hipster Review

About two months ago, I posted a highly controversial post called The Nikon Df Represents Everything Wrong With Photography. Even though I completely stand behind my original article, I began to wonder if I had not given Nikon’s newest DSLR offering a fair chance. Today I decided to take the Nikon Df out into the real world and not only test it’s photographic capabilities, but also hear what normal people had to say about it. [more]

A First Impression of the Sony a7R & How Canon/Nikon Can Beat It

Yesterday I got my hands on the new Sony a7R for a review here at Fstoppers, and I was instantly and somewhat begrudgingly a fan of it. It feels great in hand, doesn’t lack physical buttons like with other interchangeable lens compacts (ILCs), and it sounds fantastic (the shutter has an absurdly glorious “click” that you can’t help but love). My feelings for the a7R were such that I began to wonder why Canon and Nikon can’t seem to get it right in the ILC market. The answer to making the perfect compact appears so clear, but they don’t seem to have any interest of going this direction. [more]

How Instagram Brought Me Business After Only One Week Using It

For the past 2 years I refused to join Instagram. I just didn’t think it was for me, I didn’t believe I need it for my business and I just didn’t like the idea of destroying my photos by cropping them and adding weird filters. So many people tried to convince me to join Instagram in the past year or two, and I always said “No chance!” But finally, after continuing insistence by friends, last month I decided to finally give it a try and just one week later, I got my first corporate client from it. Kind of crazy. [more]

A Response on the Nikon Df Distaste, and Thoughts to Consider

What ever happened to loving a camera for the camera? Why does everything we buy have to fill a utilitarian hole? What happened to a love for the craft and as much as for the tool? There has been a lot of chatter around the Nikon Df and if we as photographers need it. It’s gone so far as to suggest that it represents all that is wrong with photography these days. I want to argue the opposite. I want to argue it represents what many of us have lost as photographers: joy in the craft. [more]
