How to clean your camera sensor: Clean your dirty sensor at home to save money and time


For users of interchangeable lens cameras, having an issue with sensor dust is something of an inevitability. Many camera retailers and even camera manufacturers offer sensor cleaning services, but these can be expensive and time-consuming, especially if you must send your camera away for it to be cleaned. Cleaning your camera sensor yourself is not nearly as difficult as you might think. Photographer Alexis Cuarezma has made a video about cleaning your own camera sensor. In the video below, Cuarezma covers some of the products...

Canon G9X II Field Test: Good image quality and strong performance in a pocketable form factor


Click here to read our Canon G9X Mark II Field Test A couple of years ago, Canon released the compact, pocketable Canon G9X. Its successor, the Canon G9X Mark II, remains very small and uses the same 20.2-megapixel 1-inch-type sensor. The G9X II brings with it a new, faster image processor, which helps make the G9X II an even better compact camera. In our hands-on time with the Canon G9X II, its excellent touchscreen user interface shined. While the camera doesn’t have the same physical controls as its larger-bodied siblings,...

Vü Filters as a brand is disappearing, merging with Benro


Benro and Vü are both brands distributed by the MAC Group, and since both produce filters, it's not surprising to hear today's news. Likely in a move to consolidate their product and eliminate confusion, Benro (known mostly for their tripods, sliders and video heads) and Vü (known for their high-quality filters) have combined, and the Vü name will be disappearing. As such, Benro's filter offerings are about to get a significant boost thanks to the Vü library of offerings. The MAC Group characterized the move as one that is...

Water droplet lens: Dutch scientists and photographer capture portraits using water as the lens


Dutch water company SPA Nederland believes in the purity of their product. To prove how clean and clear their water is, they employed scientists to use a drop of SPA Nederland water as a camera lens. It sounds crazy, right? Ultimately, anything can act as a functional lens so long as it can refract light to converge at a single point. The scientists in the video below placed an aperture diaphragm with a piece of glass – coated with water-repellant – in front of a camera sensor. They then placed a water droplet on the glass and...

Click here to read our Fujifilm Field Test Part III We've just published our third and final Field Test for the medium format mirrorless Fujifilm GFX 50S camera. In this third hands-on report, we test out the GFX 50S’ new Color Chrome Effect, investigate its image sensor further, test remote shooting capabilities and take one last look at the camera system as a whole.

Learn how to take advantage of the “color” and “luminosity” Photoshop blend modes


Blake Rudis of f64 Academy made a video to help breakdown a couple of powerful, but very different, blend modes in Photoshop: the color and luminosity blend modes. To borrow an example from Rudis, suppose you are making a curves adjustment in Photoshop. If your blend mode is “normal,” the adjustment will change tone and color in your image. When using the color blend mode, tone data is not adjusted. Conversely, by using the luminosity blend mode, color data is no longer adjusted. It is one thing to read about the blend modes,...

No matter how hard we tried, we could not overheat the Sony A9


Click here to see our Sony A9 Overheating Test When the Sony A9 first became available to the public, just about immediately a video surfaced online complaining about it overheating in what should have been a relatively unchallenging environment. In that video, the photographer said that within 20 minutes of shooting in 81 degree Fahrenheit weather, the camera warned him that the internal temperature was getting too high, and that it was soon to overheat. We decided that we had to test for ourselves if we could get the camera...

Why you shouldn’t trust your camera’s display and how to use your camera’s histogram


Photographer Steve Perry is an award-winning landscape and wildlife photographer who regularly publishes excellent tutorials covering artistic and technical topics. His latest video tends much more toward the technical side of things and it will help you capture much better images. That topic is histograms. For many, histograms are a very useful tool for capturing better images in-camera but for others, histograms are confusing. They aren’t as complicated as they look, but they do contain a lot of information. The video below...
