Caffeine Priority: Hands-on with the hands-off photo editing software, Photolemur


    Wake up with IR! Here's today's cup of Caffeine Priority... We covered Photolemur in early December. Since then, I've had the opportunity to use the MacOS software and see what it offers photographers. To brief you on what Photolemur is, it is a piece of automated photo editing software. Claiming to be the "world's first automatic photo enhancement solution" on its website, Photolemur uses artificial intelligence to automatically enhance your photos, including adjustments to exposure, white balance, saturation, contrast and...

COSYSPEED Camslinger Streetomatic + Review: Compact, well-designed bag


    In early December, I wrote about COSYSPEED’s new camera bag, the Streetomatic +. It is compact, but larger than its predecessor, capable of holding a DSLR camera rather than the mirrorless camera the the original Streetomatic was designed to carry. What makes this bag particularly interesting is how it is made to be used with a single hand. The primary feature of the Streetomatic+ is its magnetic Fidlock closure. Fidlock is a German company – as is COSYSPEED – who worked with COSYSPEED to design the closure. It is a clever design...

Firmware Friday: Fuji X-T1 gets improved flash, front dial bug fix


    Between the holiday season, CES show and an impressively powerful flu bug which took Senior Reviews Editor Mike Tomkins out for the count, our Firmware Friday roundup has necessarily taken something of an extended hiatus over the last few weeks. It returns today, though, with news of an update from the folks at Fujifilm, who've recently released their firmware version 5.01 update for the Fuji X-T1. Fuji X-T1 version 5.01 makes just two changes, according to the company's official release notes. Firstly, a bug introduced in...

French fashion photographer takes you on a distinct visual journey through China at night


    In early December, WIRED rebranded its photography website, WIRED Photo. When they did so, they promised better visuals and excellent storytelling. They’ve delivered with their recent coverage of Marilyn Mugot’s excellent night photography project. The French fashion photographer and graphic designer travelled to China for six weeks this past autumn and returned home with eerie, cinematic images of Chinese neighborhoods. She prefers working at night because “At night, I feel like I have to guess where the magic is hiding. It’s...

More than a slap on the wrist: Aerial photography company hit with large fine for FAA violations


    After seeking a record sum of US$1.9 million from aerial photography company SkyPan International, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has accepted $200,000 as part of a settlement. SkyPan International was charged with orchestrating 65 unauthorized flights in congested airspaces, lacking proper certification and registration for flights and not flying with the proper signaling equipment on-board to alert other aircraft to the presence of the SkyPan drones. However, as part of the settlement, the FAA made no findings of...

Lighting up the polar night: Finnish artist creates stunning light paintings that look out of this world


    "Great Big Story" recently made a video about Finnish artist Hannu Huhtamo and his long exposure photography. “Darkness is the canvas and the light is my brush,” Huhtamo says, “With light painting you can create new worlds in the darkness.” As much a painter as he is a photographer, he treats his camera and lens as a means of recording his light painting rather than the primary tool for creating his work. Exposure times vary from around a second to multiple hours. Huhtamo starts his process by doing sketches on paper to help...

Mirrorless monster: Thriller film “Cadaver” to be shot entirely with a Sony a7S II


    Coming to a theater near you this summer, Cadaver - a horror-thriller movie starring Shay Mitchell ("Pretty Little Liars") - will be the first movie shot entirely with a Sony a7S II camera. In Cadaver, disgraced ex-cop and recovering addict Megan Reed (Shay Mitchell) must take a graveyard shift at the morgue in the hospital where she got sober, but things get out of control when a suspicious cadaver is delivered. “Not only is the α7S II right for my studio production,” said executive producer Glenn Gainor, “but it will help...

Histogram myths: Matt Granger on understanding histograms and how to properly use them


    Photographer and educator Matt Granger wants to help us better understand histograms. Histograms are very useful and many of us are familiar with them, but Granger says there are three very common misconceptions that he wants to help eliminate. You may be tempted to make judgements about your images and their exposures while out shooting by looking at the images played back on your camera’s monitor. This is not nearly as reliable as using the histogram for a variety of reasons, including glare on the monitor, inaccurate monitor...

It’s finally here: Full details on the Fuji GFX medium-format mirrorless camera, including the price!


    Last fall, Fujifilm stole the show at Photokina 2016 with a surprise development announcement, flooring us all with its vision of an incredibly compact medium-format mirrorless camera. Today, it takes that announcement off the development roster, and brings it into the real world with the official launch of the Fuji GFX 50S, the strongest competition yet for Ricoh's venerable Pentax 645Z. We've long known that the Fuji GFX would have a similar sensor size and pixel count to the 645Z, but in a significantly more compact package....

    Alongside the official announcement of the new medium format Fuji GFX, Fujifilm has also announced updates to a pair of their APS-C X-Series cameras, the Fuji X100F and Fuji X-T20. These refreshed models not only get some  which are both centered around 24.3-megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS III image sensors. Fuji X100F First up, the Fuji X100F is the successor to the X100T and features the same unique Advanced Hybrid Viewfinder and fixed 23mm f/2 prime lens, which provides a classic 35mm-equivalent field of view.

Fujifilm launches new compact, affordable XF50mm f/2 R WR lens


    True to their lens roadmap, Fujifilm today announced the launch of their new Fujinon XF 50mm f/2 R WR lens. The Fujinon lens lineup features a generous number of prime lenses, and the XF 50mm fills a gap between two 35mm lenses, and the 56mm f/1.2. When mounted on a Fujifilm camera body, the XF 50mm lens will provide a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 76mm. Similar to the XF 23mm f/2 and XF 35mm f/2 lens released in the past few years, the XF 50mm f/2 is designed to be compact and lightweight, making it a potential go-to portrait...

    Leica's M line has simultaneously beefed up and slimmed down. The newly-announced Leica M10 features the slimmest body of any Leica digital M camera, while including a physical ISO dial, higher-magnification (0.73x) optical viewfinder and redeveloped 24-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor and Maestro II image processor.

The Leica M10 eschews video...

    Updated on January 19 at 4:15 PM ET: Per Fstoppers, it turns out that the Alison platform below is not hosting Harvard's photography course.

Harvard is offering aspiring photographers a free online course. The course comprises 13 modules and is estimated to take between 10 and 15 hours for the average student to complete. The course, Digital Photography, is available on...

Droneless in Seattle: Irresponsible drone pilot crashes into Space Needle, faces potential criminal charges


    There is likely little more annoying to responsible drone pilots than hearing about irresponsible drone pilots. Between crashing drones through windows or flying them near airplanes, it seems that people continue to give lawmakers more motivation to write stricter laws and regulations. On New Year’s Eve, an unidentified drone pilot crashed into the Space Needle in Seattle. Unsurprisingly, the drone pilot is potentially facing charges. Fstoppers is reporting that Seattle does not have specific drone laws on the books, but that the...

It’s raining drones: Pilot whose drone knocked woman unconscious found guilty, faces up to 364 days in jail


    While drones are responsible for a lot of incredible imagery and great enjoyment for responsible drone pilots, we are seeing an increasing number of unfortunate incidents relating to drones. This incident actually dates back to June 2015, but it was finally resolved in court late last week. Paul M. Skinner was flying his drone at Seattle’s Gay Pride Parade in 2015 when he lost control of the drone, crashing it into a building, which then caused the drone to freefall onto a woman’s head, rendering her unconscious. The two-pound...

Nikon KeyMission 360 takes D.C.: Inauguration to be livestreamed in VR and 360-degree video


    The upcoming US Presidential Inauguration on January 20 is an important event in American history for many reasons, not the least of which is that it will involve the swearing in of the 45th President of the United States. USA Today has announced that they will be marking the occasion by live streaming the inauguration in 360-degree VR. The media company will utilize a customized Nikon KeyMission 360 camera as part of their weekly VR show, “VRtually There.” This will be the first livestream content produced by USA Today for the...

Dangerous digits: Showing your fingerprints could lead to identity theft due to higher resolution cameras


    Could someone steal your fingerprints through an image? What may sound like extreme fear mongering does have some basis in reality as Japan’s National Institute of Informatics (NII) has recently issued a warning to the public to not share images online of themselves flashing the “V” sign (often referred to as the peace sign). Fingerprint technology is sophisticated and advanced enough now for people to steal your identify through your fingerprints in a photograph. Granted, it does take ideal conditions for this to be possible....

Nikon D5600 First Shots: Time to make comparisons against the rival T6i, K-70, A6500 and more!


    Two years in the making, the Nikon D5600 has some pretty big shoes to fill in Nikon's intermediate DSLR category. The D5500 not only won Best Intermediate DSLR in our 2015 Camera of the Year awards but was also named the "Best indoor sports camera under $1000" by us that same year. It's a camera we simply fell in love with and couldn't stop raving about. So where do you go from there? Well, if you've read our Nikon D5600 overview, they apparently decided to stick with a similar formula for this model, keeping the imaging pipeline...

Fluorescent flower photos look out of this world: Photographer captures glowing flower images


    There are lots of beautiful flower images online, but Craig Burrows’ work is unlike any we’ve seen before. Craig utilizes a technique called UV induced fluorescence photography. This photography requires that the lens absorb all ultraviolet and infrared light and allow visible radiation to pass through to the sensor. This kind of photography doesn’t have many specific equipment requirements beyond ensuring that only UV light passes and illuminates the subject. The biggest hurdle is ensuring that the UV LED used doesn’t fluoresce...
