Uptown photos for downtown weddings: Nikon and Joe McNally give New Yorkers free, world-class memories

Next to birth and death, few life events eclipse a wedding. It's no wonder that weddings are such a huge industry here in the US, or that people spend thousands (sometimes tens of thousands) of dollars to have them photographed. Life memories...

Samsung NX500 Image Quality Comparison: A lot of resolution packed into that lightweight camera

 
 

The compact, travel-friendly Samsung NX500 borrows a lot from the exterior design of its predecessor, the NX300, which is understandable. However, it borrows most of the guts from the larger, powerful NX1, which is...

Adobe teases new ‘dehaze’ feature, said to be ‘coming soon to Lightroom CC’

Last October, Adobe teased a new ‘dehaze’ feature — then called ‘defog’ — at its annual Adobe MAX conference. Today, Adobe gives us a new, more thorough look, at the seemingly magical feature that removes (and adds) haze/fog to images.

The new feature is said to be ‘coming soon to Lightroom CC,’ according to Adobe. The Dehaze tool will be...

Uptown photos for downtown weddings: Nikon and Joe McNally give New Yorkers free, world-class memories

Next to birth and death, few life events eclipse a wedding. It's no wonder that weddings are such a huge industry here in the US, or that people spend thousands (sometimes tens of thousands) of dollars to have them photographed. Life memories like these are truly priceless.

But what if you can't afford to hire a high-end pro photographer to...

7 photography gadgets and accessories you can 3D print at home

3D printers are getting more accurate and cost-efficient with each passing day. Even if you don’t have one of your own, there are a handful of companies you can send 3D files to and have printed for you.

Just what exactly can a photographer do with a 3D printer, you ask? Well, your imagination is really the only limitation, but if you need...

Samsung NX500 Image Quality Comparison: A lot of resolution packed into that lightweight camera

 
 

The compact, travel-friendly Samsung NX500 borrows a lot from the exterior design of its predecessor, the NX300, which is understandable. However, it borrows most of the guts from the larger, powerful NX1, which is quite remarkable. Inside this rather compact ILC body is the same 28.2-megapixel APS-C...

This 365-Gigapixel image of Mont Blanc takes the crown as the world’s largest photograph

When you photograph Mont Blanc, the tallest mountain in the Alps, it only makes sense if you do so by capturing the largest photograph in the world in the process. Filippo Blengini and his team made sure to do just that when they captured a whopping 365-gigapixel panorama of the tallest mountain peak in Europe (with the exception of the...

Nikon Japan issues apology for Coolpix P900 production delays

Nikon’s Coolpix P900 is an impressive superzoom camera. With its 83x zoom capabilities, equal to roughly 2000mm on a full-frame sensor, it packs quite a punch in its considerably small frame. It appears though, that manufacturing the Coolpix P900 isn’t as efficient as it probably should be to keep up with demand.

Almost immediately after its...

Nikon’s 2015 numbers show 15% decrease in sales despite strong DSLR growth

Last week, Nikon published the financial results for its fiscal year, ending on March 31st, 2015. According to the numbers, Nikon’s sales are down 14.5% and profits 11.8%, reportedly due to ‘delayed market recovery,’ mainly in Europe and China.

Leading the loss in sales and profits was, predictably, Nikon’s compact camera systems, down 31%...

In its latest 4.0 update, Flickr unveiled a new auto-tagging system designed to intelligently determine the subject matter of an image and appropriately suggest tags for the images. Unfortunately, the automated tagging system isn’t nearly as intelligent – or politically correct – as Flickr was hoping.

How to turn any bag or purse into a modular camera bag system

 
 

Camera bags come in every style, shape and size you can possibly imagine. But sometimes you want something a bit less conspicuous or a bit more personal than what most camera bags offer. In that case, the best option is to create your own camera bag. And what better way to do that than to modify a bag, case or...

This is what it feels like to shoot NASCAR races only feet away from the cars

This past weekend, I photographed qualifying for the 99th running of the Indianapolis 500. My press pass allowed me to get ridiculously close to the action, both on and off the track, but not nearly as close as photojournalist Tony Ding was able to get while covering LifeLock 400 NASCAR race at Michigan International Speedway back in 2009.
