This Nikon D300S just earned an extra $300 with an interesting tern! (Our Sept POTD winners unveiled)


    Our longtime photography contest contributor Morris Bennett Altman is no stranger to bird photography, but it seems his images of birds on a sandy beach are the ones that most captivate the judges here at IR. We're proud to introduce his latest winner, as well as a host of terrific images from some of our top photographers this month. It was only a few years ago that Mr. Altman captured another first prize victory with his captivating photograph of a gorgeous snowy owl on a beach, that time with a Nikon D200. He then took a...

A new smartphone aimed at photographers: The Kodak Ektra


    Eastman Kodak Company and Bullitt Group have announced the Kodak Ektra smartphone. The device follows in the footsteps of other camera-centric smartphones such as the Nokia Lumia 1020, which might be considered a camera first and a smartphone second. Named after older Kodak models, the Ektra features a rear-facing 21-megapixel sensor with a fixed f/2.0 lens, and a front-facing 13-megapixel sensor with a fixed f/2.2 lens.

Canon 5D Mark IV Field Test Part I: A wealth of useful upgrades in a familiar shell


    Canon's long-running 5D family turned four earlier this year! The aptly-named Canon 5D Mark IV sports a raft of technological upgrades, including an all-new 30-megapixel CMOS sensor with Dual Pixel CMOS AF, a fully functional touchscreen, built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, and 4K video recording. However, it's not all brand new; the body design is practically identical to its Mark III predecessor, which I think is a great thing. In my just-published Field Test Part I, I take a look at the new Mark IV and discuss the camera's not-so-new...

Canon EOS M10 Review: Entry-level mirrorless ILC offers simplified user experience, good image quality


    Last fall, the Canon EOS M10 joined the company's interchangeable lens camera lineup as its first entry-level mirrorless camera. Since then we have thoroughly tested the M10 in the lab and the field, and now we've delivered a final verdict. Compared to the simultaneously-launched EOS M3, the M10 opts for a much simpler, more streamlined design. In particular, there are relatively few buttons on the camera. This doesn't mean that it feels cheap, though, as the three-inch tilting touchscreen mechanism appears particularly...

Painting with light: Brian Hart’s photography turns his camera into paper and light into a pen


    Brian Hart's photography is a fascinating melding of photography and drawing. His light painting work has been widely featured on a number of occasions, including international exhibitions. Maria Bartholdi recently produced a video about Brian and his work, which you can see below. "Light is a really unique medium to work with. It's this non-physical thing. You can't see where you've drawn, it's not tangible, it's kind of like you projected out there and hopefully you end up with something good," Hart says in the video's opening....

Someone stole your image, what next? Three steps you can take to bring a digital thief to justice


    Image theft is a serious problem that affects many photographers. I've personally been the victim as the index image to the right was being used on someone's Flickr page, with the user claiming to have taken the image using an app that they created. In my case it was a moral issue, but in more serious instances, people or businesses are making considerable money using someone else's work. If you find that your work has been stolen online, what can you do about it? Image theft victim and the founder of Photography Life, Nasim...

The memory card backup device you’ve been waiting for? Meet the Flash Porter


    DFi Gear thinks you need a device to keep your images backed-up in the field, and over 200 backers on Kickstarter think so as well, giving the company over $50,000 towards a goal of $15,000 to produce their first units of the Flash Porter. Portable memory backup devices became quite popular in the 2000's, given the inherent limitations of the technology of the time: your average-size memory card was in the range of 64-128 Megabytes, and the prospect of lugging around a laptop to keep your images backed-up was the only practical...

Pentax K-70 Field Test: Mid-range features, entry-level price. Should you buy this value-packed DSLR?


    Early last year, Ricoh launched the Pentax K-S2, an entry-level DSLR that was nonetheless packed to bursting with features, many of them typically found only in more expensive cameras or appearing for the first time in a Pentax-branded body. While it had much to offer, the K-S2's attention-grabbing color scheme and top-deck material choices, as well as its optional go-faster racing stripe, caused some to take it less than seriously. Now, the Pentax K-70 is here, and brings with it most of the same features plus some new...

Nikon 105mm f/1.4E review: Big, fast, and expensive – but simply amazing


    When you're talking about lenses, a focal length between 85mm and 135mm is a go-to range for portraits -- and 105mm is the sweet spot used by many portrait photographers.

At the time this article hits the web, the Nikon 105mm f/1.4E is the fastest lens in its class --...

As of October 11, Fujifilm is following suit and suing over 50 sellers who are participating in the gray market. The lawsuit was recently filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York and claims that the defendants knowingly sold gray market Fujifilm gear as genuine U.S.-market products.
