Sharing your work on social media, you may come across a few people who ask "what are your camera settings for this shot" or something similar. There are even a few groups on Facebook that have this as a requirement to post your work. There are a few different ways you can do this, but here's an app that makes it easy.

The Contax 645 AF is a relatively small and lightweight medium format film camera dating from the late 1990s. It’s a camera that will largely appeal to analog photographers looking to benefit from the greater resolution of 120 film, while still retaining many of the advantages of a 35mm SLR in terms of speed and mobility.
So many tripod choices out there for photographers to choose from, but where does one start? This time, we're looking at two affordable options suitable both for professionals as well as amateurs.
Does this new glass from Tamron live up to the expectations?
How often is it that you miss that great selfie expression, kid photo, or sports play because you didn't have your camera running at the right time? It happens to me a lot, but a new app for iOS and very soon coming to Android called SnipBack has some good ideas to fix this issue, and it makes me think that our pro gear could learn a few lessons here.
I got a chance to review the Canon EOS 1Dx mark III for a few weeks. It is the newest generation of the amazing 1Dx DSLR, made for extreme fast sport and action photography. I took the opportunity to photograph the dogs in the park, to see how it performs.
Finding a good video editor can be difficult, especially when you're on a budget. Fortunately, the VSDC video editor could be a great place to start if you're looking to produce more video content.
A lot of creatives work on the go and enjoy listening to music or watching movies while they are doing their work. A good pair of noise canceling headphones can make a big difference in giving you a quiet environment in which to be productive, and Sony may just have the best pair ever.
Insta360 is looking to change how we view action cameras, but can they compete?
The Fujifilm X100V is the fifth entry into the company's quirky and beloved series, and it is easily the best version yet. Here are my thoughts on this great camera.
Tons of creatives work on laptops, the Achilles' heel of which is often the GPU. For anyone who wants to improve their performance without investing in an entirely new machine, an external GPU could be the answer.
Photographers care more about image quality than the average person, and given the current situation, many of us are streaming more content than ever. That's why the Nvidia Shield TV Pro caught my attention, as it offers some impressive features and controls that should please even those with the highest standards.
This week, I borrowed a $12,000 600mm lens and decided to shoot portraits with it. Random? Yes. Weird? Of course. But I learned some things I never would've experienced had it not been for this, so here's my review of the 600mm behemoth for shooting portraits.
Aerochrome film is an incredibly rare infrared film, famous for its otherworldly color palette. Can RNI’s Aerochrome profile pack really deliver the same unique results from a regular digital image?
One of the most useful tools that I bought in the last few years was a screen recorder. For many of our YouTube videos, having a screen recorder has been extremely useful, be it for comparison or simply to show a technique in Photoshop or Lightroom. Recently, I've been testing the EaseUs RecExperts' screen recording software, and it's by far the best I've used.
The Insta360 Titan has to be the most aptly named 360 camera on the market in many senses of the word. Size, image quality, price tag — take your pick. The Titan delivers on its name in all of those ways, but is it worth it?
I've lived with the Dell XPS 15 laptop as my main computer for all my photo and video editing for the past year. Should you buy it for your photo editing? Here's my full review of what it's like as a creative content maker, warts and all.
The LensPen has been around a long time, and you've seen it under a variety of brand names that act as OEMs for the original product. I had never used one, but often read about it. I was sent the original model (the NLP-1) for testing.
Kodak Portra 400 was the very first film I shot when I get back into film, and it remains my go-to for color negative film. Sure, there are others. None of them come close, however, to the popularity of Portra 400.
Tamron's new telephoto lens is honestly quite compelling. Is it the telephoto lens for you?
Akaso's new Brave 7 LE is an affordable dual-display action camera that records in 4K video and takes 20 MP photos. At an affordable $139, it's an excellent entry point into the world of action cameras.
Over the last few years, we've increasingly and very publicly questioned our behaviors, our politics, our history, our heroes, our statues, and our art. It's only reasonable that we question our photography idols. Where do Helmut Newton's hyper-erotic photography and his ruminations on power fit into our new world?
Looking to add something to your portrait or commercial shots? Take a look at this review of MicroFogger 2, a compact smoke machine.
We all know this lens is currently the widest rectilinear lens in the market today. But how well does it actually perform?
Retouching can take a long time, especially cleaning up skin. But Anthropics aims to fix that with their new version of Portrait Pro, with AI-powered skin retouching. Does it live up to the hype? Let's find out.
Usually, astrophotography is a trade-off: noise versus star trails. An extra device like the MSM camera rotator can help you shoot clear and sharp photographs of the night sky even at a very low ISO.
Between 45 MP raw files and 4K video, it’s tougher than ever to ensure that the content you produce on a trip can actually make it home. Add Apple’s absurd pricing for a soldered-in SSD, and you can probably spend as much on storage for a trip as a business class plane ticket. Caldigit is a name you might not be familiar with, but it might offer the perfect solution.
Most of us have a camera bag or even several bags that we use depending on the shoot we’ve got to pack for. But it’s not every day a brand makes a bag that makes you think differently about your day out shooting.
I was sent the 25mm f/1.8 lens for review. I went out testing in the center of Paris, and I must say, it was a lot of fun with it on my Fujifilm X-T20. Although it's a manual focus lens, you get a lot for $69.
Haida released the M10 Insert Variable ND filter for their M10 filter system. It has to be used with the normal M10 circular polarization filter. Haida kindly provided me with the brand new variable neutral density filter to try it out. These are my findings.
