Best smartphone camera ever: DxO says iPhone 8 Plus is the best smartphone camera they have tested


With Apple's newest flagship iPhone, the iPhone X, a little over a month away, the title might not last long.

The new 12-megapixel dual cameras in the iPhone 8 Plus come equipped with wide and telephoto lenses with f/1.8 and f/2.8 optics respectively.

Love of cars runs through two very different photographers across generations and styles


For car fanatics, there is something special about the roar of an engine. It's not easy to point to what exactly makes cars special, and perhaps there are as many answers to that question as there are cars on the road. It could be the unique shapes, the incredible engineering or maybe just the flat-out speed of a supercar. No matter the answer, work of automotive photographer Easton Chang is sure to inspire awe from even the most subdued car fan. Chang was recently featured by SmugMug Films and the video below shows us the...

Profoto enters new territory with the announcement of their first speed light: the Profoto A1


Announced today by Profoto comes a new product in a market we haven't seen them even show a desire to really enter.

So what is their next step? Well, apparently speed lights, with the announcement of the Profoto A1. Friend of Imaging Resource Zach Sutton is in Sweden for the launch, and was kind enough to give us the down-low as well as his first...

YI M1 Review: A Micro Four Thirds body with lens and Sony sensor for under $300—so what’s the catch?


Late last year, Shenzhen, China-based XiaoYi -- known stateside as Yi Technology -- launched the YI M1 to great fanfare. Its first standalone camera (and an interchangeable-lens camera, at that!) the Yi Camera drew plenty of attention for its reserved Leica-like looks, its quality Four Thirds-format Sony Exmor image sensor, and its broadly-supported Micro Four Thirds lens mount. But more than that, what got folks talking was its pricetag. Originally shipping at around US$350 list (and that's with a 12-40mm kit lens), the...
