Rokinon offers affordable manual focus fisheye lens for Nikon 1-mount

    Looking for an affordable fisheye lens for your Nikon 1-series compact system camera? If so, the folks at Nikon Rumors have spotted one that might be of interest given a list price of just US$200 and the magical words "Made in Japan". The Rokinon 7.5mm f/8 RMC fisheye lens doesn't appear on the company's own website, and seems to have been introduced in ninja stealth mode, with no official announcement that we can find. It sports a metal lens barrel and four all-glass elements, and has a manual-focus design. As a fisheye with a...

    Just in time for the start of our Nikon D810 review Shooter's Reports, French software company DxO Labs has released an update supporting the camera in its flagship application, DxO Optics Pro.

The latest service to cut its prices (and up its included storage capacity) is Dropbox, who is now offering its Pro subscribers a whopping 1TB of cloud storage for a mere $9.99 per month. This brings Dropbox in line with other cloud storage services such as Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive, who have been offering similar plans for a while...

Limited no more: Olympus adds a standard black color for its 12mm f/2.0 Micro Four Thirds lens

    Back in late 2012, when Olympus launched the PEN E-PL5 compact system camera -- a model just replaced by the Olympus E-PL7 this very day -- it also unveiled a new, limited-edition variant of its M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12mm f2.0 prime lens. The new optic was identical to the silver variant first released by the company in mid-2011, but with a black finish that we understand significantly outsells the silver one in the US market. At the time, it was described as a limited-edition variant (with about a $300 price boost), and for at...

Self portrait: Olympus PEN E-PL7 First Impressions Review

At first glance the Olympus PEN E-PL7 looks like yet another compact, selfie-friendly mirrorless camera -- but looks can be deceiving. The innards of the camera come largely from the excellent OM-D E-M10, and Olympus touts the E-PL7's autofocus system as its best yet.
