The Panasonic FZ1000 CAN output clean HDMI video

    The Panasonic FZ1000 is a still photography and video powerhouse, but there's been a lot of confusion over its ability to output "clean" HMDI. Thanks in great part to the efforts of Panasonic USA's National Training Manager, Mathew Frazer, we can finally set the record straight on all but one aspect of this. Information on the final point should be forthcoming shortly, when I meet with Panasonic execs in Osaka next Tuesday. First, just a bit of background: So-called "clean" HDMI output means a video signal through a...

Samsung NX3000 First Shots posted: Time to see just how well this sub-$500 APS-C camera stacks up

    The smallest APS-C ILC camera with a mode dial, lightweight and costing less than $500 with a kit lens, the Samsung NX3000 has drawn some attention with the enthusiast photographer crowd looking for a low-cost but capable back-up or competent travel camera. It's also turning heads with some of the smartphone step-up users looking for better quality in a camera that still feels small and, well, "connected". Not much bigger than the company's diminuitive NX Mini (currently the smallest ILC being sold) the NX3000 has a sensor with...

Finally some good news: Sony and Fujifilm report rising revenue from camera sales

For the past couple of years, the digital camera market was on a downward slope in both sales and revenue generated. This could mainly be attributed to the rising use of smartphones and consequent drop in sales of compact cameras, but also partially to a saturation of the market in general. We reported multiple times on this topic, and in 2014 we've seen a partial rise in sales and revenue for the first time in years. The most recent good news came from Olympus, and now it's Fujifilm and Sony who report that in the past fiscal year, both sales and earnings...

Learn how to create stunning astrophotography even in light-polluted areas

Photographing the night sky -- also called astrophotography -- is a challenging endeavor. Depending on what exactly it is you want to photograph -- a specific constellation of stars, the milky way, another galaxy etc. -- you first need to find out the best time and location for your photo, which depends on a lot of factors. Then, you need to figure out how to set up your gear for the best results, and finally you'll have to process your images to look good. Astrophotography, when done correctly, can also be highly rewarding, as it can yield some of the most...

Lens Rentals Canada halts service citing 'serious issues' with Canada Post

Lens Rentals Canada has announced that it is temporarily not accepting new orders. A brief notice on lensrentalscanada.com cites 'serious issues' with Canada Post Corporation, and states that current orders will be shipped using Purolator Courier.

No estimated timeframe has been given as to when orders will be accepted again. Read more

The Inky Blackness of Space

You may have run into the occasional black background when shooting close-up images with an on-camera flash.

How Much Do Editorial Clients Pay? ?Wiki? Gives Names and Fees

Editorial clients are reluctant to publicize information about rates for photo assignments. But photographers need to know who pays what, in order to figure out which clients are worth shooting for, and to help them negotiate assignment fees. A Tumblr site called Who Pays Photographers? helps bridge the information gap with a wiki-inspired spreadsheet listing […]
