Casio helps you see in the dark: 2-megapixel camera has fast lens, high ISO and special processing


    If you shoot in very low light but don't need much resolving power, Casio has a new camera which may be right for you. The Casio EX-FR110H has a backside-illuminated CMOS sensor that packs only 1.9 megapixels, but has a native ISO up to 51,200. The sensor's pixels are particularly large and the camera has new noise suppression circuitry. The FR110H has a built-in 20mm equivalent lens with an f/2.8 aperture. The back of the camera has a 3-inch LCD, which is detachable from the camera so you can shoot it remotely. Further, you can...

Adjust orange and other troublesome colors in Photoshop with this simple trick


    It can be surprisingly difficult to target tertiary colors in Photoshop. Thanks to Javi at The Invisible Touch, we can see how to easily target and adjust a specific color in Photoshop, in this case orange. To target orange (or another color), use the marquee tool and select an area that is the color you want to change. You fill the selected area with a solid color that is the target color. Now you go to Hue/Saturation adjustments and select a specific color that doesn’t exist in the image you’re working on. In the case of the...

Our Camera of the Year awards are a chance to let us showcase the cameras and lenses that really shined for us over the past year, and we're honored to give them the recognition they deserve with our Camera of the Year awards.

Can a lemur fix your photos? AI-driven Photolemur software automatically improves your photos


    Artificial intelligence is becoming a bigger part of our everyday lives and photography is certainly not immune from it. Unlike Adobe's products, which are becoming increasingly reliant on AI for parts of larger tasks such as identifying fonts and aiding in selections, a new MacOS photo editor called Photolemur is built entirely around artificial intelligence. Photolemur is being referred to by its creators as "the world's first automatic photo enhancement solution." The software analyzes millions of pixels per second, allowing...

    More Sony sample images straight from our testing lab! It's been four long years since Sony's previous flagship, full-frame SLT camera -- the Sony A99 -- and many were wondering if Sony had all but abandoned their "DSLR" lineup.

How does an iPhone 7 Plus stack up with a $50k RED Weapon camera in the video department?


    Can an iPhone 7 Plus surpass a $50,000 RED Weapon camera in the video department? No. However, according to Parker Walbeck of Fulltime Filmmaker, it can come astonishingly close in the right situation. That right situation is when viewing video in the ways most people consume media, on compression-ridden streaming players and on mobile devices. Parker isn't trying to say that a RED camera isn't worth the money or that you can replace it with an iPhone, rather he is trying to demonstrate how you shouldn't feel limited by your...

Sony A6500 First Shots: Sony’s souped-up, flagship APS-C mirrorless camera hits our lab


    The Sony A6500 was a bit of a surprise, seeing as how the predecessor A6300 model arrived earlier this same year in February. But despite the short turnaround time, the new A6500 packs in a whole bunch of new technology and upgraded performance into that familiar shell.

Lightroom is powerful portrait editing software: Three start-to-finish retouching tutorials


    Lightroom is more than excellent photo cataloging and raw editing software, it is also a powerful photo editor. We have covered many Lightroom tutorials, but today we are going to focus solely on using Lightroom for portrait retouching. Retouching tutorials regularly focus on using Photoshop, but not everyone has access to Photoshop or feels comfortable using it. Lightroom, on the other hand, is generally much more user-friendly and in many cases, just as powerful as Photoshop. Darlene Hildebrandt is the managing editor of...

Cloud-connected WD My Cloud Pro external hard drive is well-suited for creative collaboration


    Backing up your photos is critically important and every photographer should have at least some form of a backup solution. Ideally, you have multiple local backups and something off-site. There are many options on the market for local backup, which one is right for you? PetaPixel’s Michael Zhang helps to answer that question in his review of the Western Digital’s My Cloud Pro Series PR2100. The My Cloud Pro Series PR2100 creates a private cloud with a network attached storage (NAS) server, allowing photos to be backed up and...

Canon joining the modern Japanese space race, although not in the way you might expect


    Nikon has had a long relationship with space travel and exploration and continues to have an important place on the International Space Station. Canon wants to get in on the action now. However, unlike Nikon, Canon isn’t concerned with sending cameras into space, but are instead helping to fund the creation of a “low-cost ‘mini-rocket’ for future satellite launches.” Nikkei Asian Review is reporting that engineers from Cannon have joined a team dedicated to designing and building the “world’s smallest satellite launch...

Firmware Friday: 36 updates from Canon, Fuji, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Pentax, Sony and more


    Firmware Friday is here once more, after a brief hiatus while I was out of town shooting Sony cameras in Austin, Texas, and then feeling under the weather with a bug I picked up on my return home. Since we've missed a couple of weeks, I've done my best to catch up not only on this week's firmware news, but also on everything from the last couple of weeks. The result is one seriously long list of news, so we'll keep things brief and stick to the official release notes where available. Without any further ado, let's get down...

Look out! These videos highlight the occupational risk of sports photography


    Sports photography is about capturing the iconic sports moments that sometimes transcend the field of play altogether. Shooting the timeless images can come with more physical wear and tear than the soreness that accompanies lugging a massive exotic telephoto lens around for hours. Have you ever seen a photographer on a National Football League sideline get steamrolled by a 250-pound player? If you’ve watched a lot of football, you surely have. The job of sports photographer comes with inherent risk. Digital Trends has put...
