Sony A77 II Shooter?s Report Part II: Great performance, but is continuous AF up to snuff?

    It was a long time in the making, but our second and final installment of our Sony A77 II Shooter's Report is here at last. Photographer John Shafer was almost ready to put down his own cash for Sony's latest APS-C A-mount camera, sight unseen, based solely on the specs of the camera. He was quite smitten with the camera in the first part of his review, based on image quality and usability. However, being a sports and action photographer, he was keen to really put it to the test and, in particular, see how its continuous autofocus...

?A Different View? photo series challenges the social stigmas of pregnancy and motherhood

    Serbian photographers Dragana Djorović and Jovan Marjanov are looking to make a statement against pregnancy and motherhood stereotypes through their photo series A Different View. In it, they capture mother and model Marijana Jovanović taking part in a number of professions that aren’t often suggested for a woman who’s late into her third pregnancy. Working on a car, chopping away at lumber, operating a backhoe and even boxing, the strong compositions paint an interesting metaphor for the message Djorović and Marjanov are trying...

Mastin Labs Ilford B&W Preset Pack takes film emulation to the next level

    In the age of digital photography, it’s slightly paradoxical that we look to the past for inspiration on how to bring to life our images of today. Specifically, I’m referring to the trend of using analog-inspired presets to bring character to our otherwise sterile digital images. To some people though, it’s not about format as much as it is end result. One of those individuals is Kirk Mastin, the man behind Mastin Labs. A wedding photographer by day and Lightroom magician by night, Mastin is what a ‘hybrid’ shooter, using both...

Photographer sues Nike over rights to Jordan 'Jumpman' logo

In 1984, photographer Jacobus Rentmeester photographed a then college-enrolled Michael Jordan for Time Magazine.

Little, Improved: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM5 review posted

The Panasonic Lumix GM5 is an almost unthinkably small Micro Four Thirds camera with a 16MP sensor, 3" 921k-dot touch screen, 1080/60p HD video and built-in Wi-Fi. It follows in the already tiny footsteps of the GM1, adding a built-in EVF and more external controls to that camera's point-and-shoot approach. Does it stand tall in a competitive enthusiast mirrorless class? Read more
