Firmware Friday: Pentax K-3 LCD bug fixed; Nikon goes into overdrive with 9 firmware/software updates

    Firmware Friday returns this week with a followup to an earlier update, as well as a whole raft of firmware and software released by Nikon. We'll get the ball rolling with the followup, though, which resolves an issue in an update we told you about last month. The version 1.20 update for Ricoh's Pentax K-3 DSLR shipped in late April, and added support for three new lens models. Unfortunately, it also introduced a bug that caused the LCD monitor's backlight to remain active even when the screen itself was disabled, reducing...

AGUA, a storm-proof camera bag series from Miggo

There are a handful of ways to keep your camera dry in less than ideal circumstances. But few are as robust and portable as AGUA, a new series of camera bag from accessory manufacturer, Miggo.

Nikon D5500 Shooter?s Report Part II: The best indoor sports camera for under $1000

    For anyone reading this who's ever tried to capture quality sports images in a typical indoor gym, you already know it's a tricky proposition. You need fast shutter speeds to capture the action, and in lower light environments this often means you need to let the ISO climb fairly high for many shooting situations. You also need good continuous autofocus performance and reasonably good burst rates, as well as a viewfinder that can follow the action with some accuracy. The big deal sports photographers shoot with big deal full...

Olympus 8mm f/1.8 Pro Fisheye Lens Review: quirky, ultra-distorted lens gets ?Zuiko Pro? treatment

    To some, a fisheye lens might seem like just a novelty lens, but it definitely has its time and place, especially for skateboarding, surfing, and other extreme action sports scenes as well as underwater photography. With the recently-announced Olympus 8mm f/1.8 Pro Fisheye lens, the Japanese camera company has given the "Zuiko Pro" treatment to a brand new "super-ultra-wide" lens with a uniquely ultra-bright f/1.8 aperture. Joining alongside the other Zuiko Pro lens, the 12-40mm f/2.8 and 40-150mm f/2.8, the new 8mm f/1.8 Fisheye...
