Feature Request: Body-to-Body Communication Would Be Every Event Photographer's Dream

Today, more and more cameras have wireless technologies built into the body.

The ThinkTank StreetWalker HardDrive Bag Review - It's Waterproof

I fell into a canal in Venice with the ThinkTank StreetWalker HardDrive Bag on my back. I was walking too close to the edge while looking at the bridges and architecture, and how the water brushes up against them, when I stepped on a moss-covered section of the canal ledge. I slipped, hit my bum on the ledge, and gently slid into the canal. There was no splash, and my head didn't go below water, but the ledge was so slippery that I couldn’t get out by myself. I was floating in the canal for what was the longest 30 seconds of my life.

​GoPro released a new pro virtual reality camera rig called Omni, which is a cube-shaped system allowing the user to record in 360 degrees. This new frame, made from aluminum, sports a very compact look, and because of the metal used, it promises to be light and flexible under different circumstances. The proof lies in the new trailer released by GoPro. The 360-degree clip showcasing the skills of freestyle skiers and snowboarders in the Tyrolean Alps of Austria was shot with the new camera rig.

For those Apple consumers looking for a laptop with a Midas touch, Apple’s newest addition to the Macbook family has officially gone from pre-order to available for same day shipping. Apple has made some significant changes with their newest model, most notably being the rose gold finish.

The Coolest Cinema Lenses Yet

The Coolest Cinema Lenses Yet

Some of you may be familiar with Leica's R system. Though the system was certainly overshadowed by the M cameras, these lenses are some of the best that Leica ever made. I was first introduced to these lenses during my brief foray into the Sony mirrorless system. I picked up a 50mm f/2 R mount lens and it is likely the best 50mm that I have owned. It was sharp, small, smooth, and light. It could be the perfect 50mm. There is, however, another level to the Leica R madness.
