The ultra-wide angle f/2.8 zoom lens is a staple in many professional photographers' bags, but such a lens tends to be less than cheap. That is why third party options that offer comparable image quality have gained so much traction in the last few years. This great video review takes a look at the Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DG DN Art lens.
A well-devised digital storage system should be one of the most crucial considerations for every digital creative. With larger and larger camera sensors constantly emerging on the market, we find ourselves needing to accommodate and functionally access enormous raw and video files.

This month, a new Thunderbolt 3 SSD by Plugable is emerging on the scene, and I have a feeling it is going to change photographers’ and videographers’ workflows in a drastic way.

This great video review takes a look at the lens.
Leica has just announced its successor to its full-frame mirrorless camera, and it just might be a sign they are listening to the demands of professional photographers.
