Sure, so what if this camera name has been rumored since 2005? Photokina is coming and Canon is going to need something to unveil at the show. Especially with the EOS M already announced, Photokina seems a likely opportunity to dazzle the crowd with a new DSLR. So what would the Canon 3D specs look like?
My Holga is currently sitting on top of my desk, collecting dust. But the folks from Photographic Works/ArtsEye Gallery in Tucson would never let that happen. They are so passionate about the toy camera that they constructed the world's largest Holga. This thing is twenty times the size of a regular Holga, and squeezes tightly into a two-horse trailer. They initially started building it to be a prop for a toy camera exhibit. But then it occurred to them that it could easily be made to be a usable camera.
In this behind the scenes video, photographer Jay P. Morgan of The Slanted Lens shows us how he shoots zombies through a car using a Kessler shuttle pod. The camera movement is the most crucial part in making this commercial. The Kessler pod has to stay high enough so that when they move through the car, it will not shake the camera.
Voted the best professional cameras of 2012-2013 by the EISA, the Nikon D4 and the Nikon D800 take the lead. The EISA magazines found that the Nikon D4 camera has an exceptional combination of high resolution, wide dynamic range, very low noise levels even at ISO 12800, super- fast autofocus, short response time and high frame rates that can be maintained for very long sequences.
B&H Photo just announced Sony's latest camera, the NEX-EA50 Full HD Pro Camcorder with an 18-200mm servo zoom lens, the first E-mount lens with servo zoom.

Jay P Morgan has been getting a lot of press recently for both his creative imagery and his informative behind-the-scenes videos, and for good reason: they're chock-full of great information and Jay shows everything from his lighting setups to post-processing tricks. In this BTS, Jay gives us a look at how he balances constant lights with strobe lights, something that
A few weeks ago Rebecca posted "How To Shoot A RAW Timelapse: New Series By Preston Kanak" which was an introduction to this series. This video is part one of Preston's free tutorials on making compelling timelapses, which covers hardware options. Intervalometers, batteries, motors, sliders, and bears, oh my! Very informative stuff from Mr. Kanak.
Specialized lenses are tricky things. Since they are built for a set of specific purposes in mind, they really need to follow through on that small list of tasks lest they be discarded as an unnecessary expenditure. That is a lot of pressure to make an outstanding lens, so how did Sigma fare with their new 180mm f/2.8 macro? Is it a good addition to your lens collection?
In this behind the scenes video, Photographer Jay P. Morgan of The Slanted Lens explains in-depth, the differences between lighting with the Octodome and a rectangular soft box. By building a 12 foot tape wall, he was able to clearly explain the area of coverage and quality of light for 14 different lighting set-ups.
The Canon G12 camera is one of our favorite "point and shoots" because it has all the features a photographer would want: manual settings, shoots RAW, and has a hot shoe. Until they run out of inventory, BH Photo is giving a $400 rebate when you purchase the Canon G12 with Canon's Flagship PixmaPRO 9000 MKII Printer. So this makes the printer free and knocks down the G12 to $307.50 which is $70 cheaper than anywhere else. Pretty awesome deal if you ask me!
