Looking for a Great Photo Event in the UK? The Photography Show is This March!

Looking for a Great Photo Event in the UK? The Photography Show is This March!

I'm a big fan of shows like Photo Plus, Gulf Photo Plus and WPPI Las Vegas, so when my good friend (and amazing photographer in his own right) David Kai-Piper told me about an event he's helping orchestrate in the United Kingdom this year, I thought you all would be interested to hear about it. Introducing The Photography Show, a new show and home for professional and hobbyists to come together to enjoy all things photographic.

Canon Announces New Entry-Level T5, the Powershot G1X Official

Though you can read more about the Powershot G1X here (since the info was leaked early by Best Buy who shortly thereafter removed the page), the Canon T5 experienced no such leak. The T5 is an entry-level affordable ($550) way for newbies to take ditch a point and shoot for a DSLR. It features an 18.0 megapixel CMOS (APS-C) image sensor and a high-performance DIGIC 4 image processor.

Sigma Introduces New Camera Lineup: The dp Quattro

Sigma today announced the new generation of high image quality compact cameras “SIGMA dp” that incorporates a newly developed Foveon X3 direct image sensor (generation name: “Quattro”). Sigma is saying it is unique and without peer among image sensors, the Foveon direct image sensor is similar to traditional color film in that its multiple layers capture all of the information that visible light transmits.

Panasonic Announces 4K Mirrorless Lumix, the DMC-GH4

Panasonic Announces 4K Mirrorless Lumix, the DMC-GH4

I always thought the point of mirrorless was to make things compact, but Panasonic looks like they want to expand my mind and believe it also means raw power, as they have announced the Lumix DMC-GH4, a new camera that features 4K 24p cinematic video (4096x2160), plus 4K 3840x2160 30p/24p with 49 points of autofocus. The build is all metal, and it's obviously aimed at the professional market.

Tamron Announces Two New Lenses: 16-300mm f/3.5-6.3 & 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3

Ahead of the Japanese trade show CP+, Tamron has announced two more mega-zoom lenses, the 28-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD (Model A010) and the 16-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD MACRO (Model B016). The lenses follow the 150-600mm f/5-6.3 announced in late 2013. The two new lenses feature Tamron's Vibration Compensation and a PZD (Piezo Drive) which will supposedly deliver faster, quieter autofocus.

Hasselblad Stays the Course on Sony Rebrands, Releases "Hasselblad HV"

Hasselblad Stays the Course on Sony Rebrands, Releases "Hasselblad HV"

Well despite the CMOS back announcement last month, Hasselblad hasn't done much in the ways of innovating (and it can be argued they haven't really done anything yet since the back was only announced, but no specs or information on it has been released). That didn't change yesterday when they announced the Hasselblad HV, a rebranded and reskinned Sony a99 that will retail for €8500.

FS Review: Sigma Hits Success Again with 24-105mm f/4 OS HSM Lens

FS Review: Sigma Hits Success Again with 24-105mm f/4 OS HSM Lens

I don’t know about you guys, but when Sigma announced the 24-105mm f/4 lens last year, I got very excited. The Canon 24-105mm f/4 was one of my favorite video lenses early on. It’s an extremely versatile focal length that, besides the slow f/4 constant aperture, was largely pretty usable in nearly any environment. Sadly, the lens was only good for video because it just wasn’t very sharp. That’s why Sigma’s attempt got me so jazzed. Based on prior experience with their Art line, I had high expectations for Sigma's new zoom lens.

Captivating Video "Beauty" Brings Motion to Still Paintings

Captivating Video "Beauty" Brings Motion to Still Paintings

"Beauty" is a short video by Rino Stefano Tagliafeirro, and it's a captivating 10 minutes that brings to life still paintings with a somewhat eerie soundtrack that almost forces rapt attention. The manifesto is described as delving into the "enigma of beauty." I would say more, but this is just one of those things that needs to be experienced. Warning, this does contain painted nudes.
