So this is an interesting round-up of specs that’s just been posted to Sony Alpha Rumours. If true, the long (long!) awaited A7S III is going to get Sony video shooters very excited.

Forget action videos – Use your GoPro Hero 8 to shoot stills

GoPro cameras are best known for shooting action videos, but they can be surprisingly good for taking still photos as well. The trick is to work with their quirks and limitations, rather than fighting against them. It is obvious that results will be quite different from images taken from smartphones or cameras, but that´s the […] The post Forget action...

Photographer creates emotional underwater portraits that look like paintings [mildly NSFW]

I just love it when different forms of art intertwine and inspire each other. This is why I was immediately drawn to Canadian photographer Barbara Cole and her underwater photos. Although they have a painterly look to them, they were all photographed underwater, often at her own small swimming pool. They’re intriguing, emotional, and each […] The...

There’s been a lot of chatter and speculation lately about the potential overheating issues with the new Canon EOS R5.

The Zhiyun Crane 3S is a big beefy gimbal for big beefy cameras that offers a lot of versatility

The Zhiyun Crane 3S is the latest iteration of Zhiyun’s flagship line of Crane gimbals, traditionally designed for DSLRs and mirrorless cameras. On first glance, the Crane 3S looks a lot like the Crane 3 LAB, but it definitely holds a few extra tricks up its sleeve.

This guy built a VR time machine from a year’s worth of Snapchat Spectacles footage

During the coronavirus lockdowns, I sure would love to have a time machine so I can travel back to all those concerts I attended and places I visited in 2019. Wouldn’t you? Well, Lucas Rizzotto did it. Kind of. This San Francisco-based inventor wore Snapchat spectacles for an entire year, filming everything that was happening […] The post This guy...

Olympus NA and Europe didn’t know the company had been sold until the press release hit

Since its sale to Japan Industrial Partners, there are a lot of questions over the future of the Olympus imaging business and what that might mean for their cameras, lenses and other products going forward. 43Rumors reports, though, that some of those questions already seem to have something of an answer.
