Ricoh announces limited-edition gunmetal-gray Pentax K-3

    Tempted by Ricoh's feature-rich, 24-megapixel Pentax K-3 digital SLR, but want something a little more visually interesting than the typical, plain black camera body? It seems like most cameras aimed at enthusiasts take the staid route, although the limited-edition silver variant of the Pentax K-3 shows that even enthusiast camera makers can let their hair down occasionally. And now, you have another option: a limited-edition gunmetal variant of the K-3. The just-announced Pentax K-3 Prestige ships this August at a pricetag of...

Sony boosts sensor output to meet strong demand

    It's a good time to be a sensor manufacturer, it seems. While camera sales have been hard-hit by the rise of smartphones, demand for image sensors is stronger than ever. (And that's especially true of stacked, backside-illuminated image sensors, a popular choice in smartphones where the tradeoff between camera module size and image quality makes them particularly useful.) An announcement today from Sony proves that point rather nicely. The company is once again planning to boost its stacked sensor production capacity, investing...

Learn how to use HDR to create natural looking photos in this B&H educational video

When photographing a scene with strong contrast, such as a landscape during the morning or evening light, a cityscape in the afternoon, or an interior scene with bright light coming in through the windows, most digital cameras' sensors are uncapable of capturing the full dynamic range of the scene. This leads to a loss of detail either in the highlight or in the shadows. The most common technique to overcome this natural limit of digital sensors is HDR photography. By taking multiple images of the same scene with varying exposures, these can be merged by...

Sony RX100 III Shooter?s Report III: SteadyShot, video, flash and more?you asked, we answer!

    Parting, they say, is such sweet sorrow -- and yet part with the Sony RX100 III is what I must do. I've just posted the third and final part of my Sony RX100 III Shooter's Report blog, and it's time for opinions rendered and perhaps a few tears shed. Some cameras are easier than others to give back; suffice to say that the RX100 III is a camera that's hard to let go. But let go I did, if only for long enough to put fingers to keyboard and answer some of your remaining questions -- as well as a few of my own. First and foremost, I...

Ricoh announces Pentax K-3 Prestige Edition

Ricoh has announced a new 'Prestige' version of its Pentax K-3 DSLR. This special edition camera, which 'commemorates the many awards bestowed upon the K-3' (including from this website), comes in a special gunmetal gray color. The Prestige edition includes a matching battery grip, two batteries, and an 'exclusive' battery strap. If you want your K-3 to stand out from the crowd you'd better hurry, as only 2,000 kits will be sold worldwide.

Real-world & studio samples added to Nikon D810 1st-Impressions Review

Nikon's new D810 consolidates the older D800 and D800E into a single body with no AA filter on its 36MP CMOS sensor. A few days ago we received a final production sample Nikon D810 and we've been shooting with it intensely ever since. As well as putting it through our initial studio testing, we've also taken a quick look at the effectiveness of the new electronic first-curtain shutter and created a gallery of real-world sample images to show what the camera can do.

The Inky Blackness of Space

You may have run into the occasional black background when shooting close-up images with an on-camera flash. You may also have noticed people in large venues with cameras trying to light up the room with a camera flash. You may also have heard people claiming that the Apollo moon landings were faked. Allow me to tie these three concepts together....

What Settings Did You Use?

When someone sees a great image and wants to be able to emulate it they sometimes ask the photographer who shot it what aperture, shutter speed and other settings they used. Seems natural enough in a sense, but the more I think about it it's my contention that they're focusing on the wrong thing....
