Sigma 150-600mm Sport: Hands-on preview of Sigma?s latest ?Sigmonster? telephoto lens

    1D X: 600mm, f/7.1, 1/1250s, ISO 640, +1/3EV This image HAS been edited/retouched. Click image for original (or RAW). For outdoor sports and wildlife photographers, a versatile, high-powered super-telephoto zoom lens is an essential piece of the kit that lets you get shots from far away…and even farther away. Just prior to Photokina last month, Sigma announced not one, but two new super-tele zoom lenses that have undoubtedly caught the eye of long-lens enthusiasts. The 150-600mm F/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sport and 150-600mm F/5-6.3...

Tamron celebrates long-zoom lens milestone

    Third-party lens maker Tamron is celebrating this month, after total shipments of its high-power zoom lenses passed an important milestone. Some 22 years after it shipped its first long-zoom model -- the AF28-200mm F/3.8-5.6 Aspherical (Model 71D) -- all the way back in 1992, the company says sales of high-power zooms have passed a total of five million units worldwide. That might not sound like a huge number, but it's worth noting that unlike Nikon's recent announcement that it had sold 85 million Nikkor lenses, or Canon's...

Canon Cinema EOS C100 Mark II arrives with Dual Pixel CMOS AF, Wi-Fi, faster processor

    Movie shooters, take note: Canon has just overhauled its entry-level interchangeable-lens digital video camera, the EOS C100. The new Canon Cinema EOS C100 Mark II brings with it quite a few useful upgrades, while the original C100 gets an instant rebate that makes it more affordable than before. Of course, "more affordable" and "entry-level" are relative terms here -- the market for dedicated ILC movie cameras is relatively small and made up predominantly by pros, so prices are significantly higher than for typical SLR or...

More candy, less moolah: Pentax K-S1 gets a sweeter price and bundled Wi-Fi card

    Eight weeks ago, Ricoh launched its Pentax K-S1 DSLR, an unusual camera whose styling divides opinions like few others. Today, the company has announced three new color variants of that camera which also add to the product bundle -- Lime Pie (lime green trim), Strawberry Cake (deep pink trim) and Blue Cream Soda (light blue trim). Dubbed the Sweets Collection, each of the three variants pairs its trim color with white body panels, for a very eyecatching look. In the process, Ricoh has also shaved US$100 off list pricing for...

Canon patents lens designs with variable and glass elements

It's not uncommon for a company to patent technologies that might be incorporated into products at some point, though the company might not have any plans to use it in the immediate future.

Can You Really Buy a Quality $35 Arca-Compatible Ball Head?

In the beginning there was the legendary Arca Swiss B1 ballhead, the dovetail-plate clamp system that became an industry standard. Then came Really Right Stuff, Kirk Enterprises and others. These days, you can buy Arca-compatible tripod heads and quick release plates from countless vendors on websites such as Amazon and eBay, sometimes at ridiculously low prices. So I started to wonder: can you really buy a quality Arca-Swiss compatible tripod ballhead for just thirty-five dollars?....
