Nikon updates Capture NX-D, ViewNX 2

    If you're shooting with a Nikon camera, it might be time to update your bundled software. The company has just released updates to its consumer ViewNX 2 and enthusiast-oriented Capture NX-D imaging apps. The update to Capture NX-D fixes a raft of bugs, while the ViewNX 2 update adds support for one camera and makes a functional improvement to file handling. We'll start with Capture NX-D, since that's the bigger of the two updates. In full, the list of changes made in Nikon Capture NX-D version 1.0.3 is as...

Sony RX100 III vs Canon G7X vs Panasonic LX100: Which is the best compact camera for enthusiasts?

    For the last couple of years, Sony has dominated the enthusiast compact camera market with its RX100-series, three closely-related, zoom-equipped cameras that are both pocket-friendly and feature much larger sensors than previous enthusiast compacts. Their nearest competitors have been Canon's G1X-series cameras, which are much larger, intended for the coat pocket rather than the pants pocket. But last month, the biennial Photokina tradeshow changed all that, as two brand-new contenders appeared, ready to vie for the title of best...

Red Giant Offload makes backups you can trust?even in the field

    Do you get a little sweaty-palmed when offloading your videos, especially if you're in the field? Sure, you can make multiple copies, but there's no guarantee that something hasn't gotten corrupted along the way. Manually verifying the sanctity of each video is unnecessarily time-consuming, though, and all too easily forgotten. Thankfully, the folks at Red Giant have come to your rescue with a new app that's designed to give you peace of mind and a smoother workflow. Red Giant Offload is relatively straightforward, and...

Adobe courts Aperture castaways with import plugin, free training offer

    Last June, we reported on the demise of Apple's flagship imaging app, Aperture, which is no longer being actively developed. Apple's decision to abandon Aperture left photographers with a choice: Stay with the app and continue to expend energy on an increasingly obsolete database format, or make the jump to a rival product from the likes of Adobe, Corel or Phase One at the earliest opportunity. The problem with making that jump was that of taking your existing catalog with you. Each app has its own proprietary database...

Canon PowerShot G7 X First Impressions updated

From the outside, Canon's PowerShot G7 X enthusiast compact looks like the S-series models that came before it, but inside it's an entirely different story. The G7 X offers a 20MP 1"-type BSI CMOS sensor, a 24-100mm equiv. F1.8-2.8 lens and built-in Wi-Fi with NFC. We've made a substantial update to our First Impressions Review of the G7 X including a writeup of our shooting experience and performance tests. Read more

Apple iPhone 6 Plus camera review

The iPhone 6 Plus, introduced alongside the iPhone 6, offers one distinct feature that its sibling doesn't - optical image stabilization. In all other respects, their 8MP cameras, F2.2 aperture lenses and updated AF systems are the same. On paper the 6 Plus doesn't represent a great leap forward in terms of camera tech, but how does it perform in the real world? Read more

Lomography adds Lomochrome Turquoise film to lineup

Back in January 2013, Lomography announced that it would be releasing a color negative film called Lomochrome Purple, which was based on Kodak's Aerochrome. With that film, photographers could capture images with shifted colors skewed towards the presence of purple. Today the company has made a follow-up announcement, introducing the Lomochrome Turquoise XR 100-400. Read more

JPEG: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

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?....
