500px Prime Now Giving 70% Commission to Photographers Instead of 30%

About a month ago you may remember I wrote an article that talked about how 500px was releasing a new “Prime” program and they planned on selling images on their site and giving the photographers only 30% in return.

Images have been posted of the first tests with the soon to be released Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens. Photos Rumors recently posted the following info about a release they found from Xitek. The images look VERY nice and if the price is right, I might be ditching my Canon 50mm 1.4 for this.

Sports Illustrated Puts Kate Upton in Zero Gravity... Because, for Science?

Kate Upton? Bikini? ZERO GRAVITY? Sports Illustrated just keeps giving me more and more reasons to not read anything about sports.
