Imagine getting off a flight, walking over to get your (unwillingly) gate-checked case full of $20K of camera gear, and seeing a baggage handler walking up holding a few lenses and yelling “whose are these?” That’s exactly what happened to photographer Yosef Shidler of CJ Studios.

When Sigma unveiled the sd Quattro mirrorless camera back in February, pricing and availability for the Foveon sensor-toting APS-C camera was conspicuously absent. Today, Sigma surprised some by letting the rather affordable cat out of the bag.

Start off your Saturday with a juicy iPhone 7 leak and a small helping of salt. According to a new so-called ‘spy shot’ of the iPhone 7’s back casing, the next-gen 4.7-inch iPhone (not the Plus) comes with a bigger camera port that will house a larger CMOS sensor.

This guide to photographic exposure aims to help you take full control of your camera.

Watching a car commercial will never be the same once you get a peek at the Blackbird. A shapeshifting, adjustable electric car ‘rig,’ it can become any car—past, present, or future—with some help from CGI.

The great Ansel Adams would often say that his negatives were “the score” and the print was “the performance.” And one of his most famous “performances” of all time is Moonrise over Hernandez, New Mexico, the photograph you get to hear Adams himself talk about in this video.

It seems Canon has some big surprises in store for 2017. Not only is the follow-up to the entry-level full-frame EOS 6D in the works, there’s talk of a brand-new EOS DSLR as well.

The groundbreaking mirrorless medium format Hasselblad X1D looks ultra-portable in the product photos provided by Hassy, but how small is it really? We used the Camera Size tool to put it up against some of its competition.

Since 2009, Kirsty Mitchell has been dazzling the photography world with her epic (and deeply personal) photo project titled Wonderland. Now, 6.5 years and 74 photos later, the project is finished.

Want to shoot long exposure photos in bright daylight without having to shell out big bucks on a neutral density (ND) filter? Try using a piece of welder’s glass — the kind that protects your eyes while welding. The 13-minute video above by photographer Mathieu Stern provides a nice overview of this photo hack.

Bill Cunningham, the legendary fashion photographer who shot street-style portraits for the New York Times for nearly 4 decades, died in New York on Saturday, just days after suffering a stroke. He was 87.

The news that Metabones Sony E-Mount to EF adapters and speedboosters had just been updated with some of Sony’s native autofocus functionality was hailed with many shouts of joy, but those shouts may have been premature. It seems the results are… less than great.

In a shocking referendum that has left the country in turmoil this morning, the United Kingdom decided to leave the European Union. This is what Canon and Hasselblad’s CEOs had to say about the potential impact.

The majority of the work I create is fiction. In my personal imagery, I pull from my loose short stories and abstract them down to core ideas. This is the beginning to a process that translates into a world of make believe or absurd interpretations of reality.

If you judge your photography gadgets on versatility, then the Pinout should score high marks. A remote shutter release, intervalometer, and geotagging device with a nifty loss/theft prevention feature built in, Pinout promises to do a lot given its minuscule size.

If you like to physically control as many of the settings on your camera as possible, the ICELAVA Warm-to-Cold Fader is right up your alley. This neat little lens accessory puts color temperature control onto a variable filter you simply twist to adjust.

After several tantalizing teasers and one very serious leak yesterday, the Hasselblad X1D, the world’s first compact mirrorless medium format camera, has officially arrived. Behold the promised “game changer.”

It’s Friday. The perfect day to share something that’s part camera-related, part science-related, and part this-is-just-plain-cool-related: a hand-held explosion captured at 20,000fps.

A woman at a public event in Beloeil, Quebec, was injured earlier this month when a DJI Phantom 3 camera drone dropped out of the sky and smashed directly into her head. The incident was caught on camera by another drone in the sky and can be seen in the 8 second video above.

“The manufacturers have found a way of storing a whole roll of transparencies onto a tiny disk,” says Tomorrow’s World presenter Maggie Philbin in this short clip. But she couldn’t have guessed how primitive that groundbreaking floppy disk technology would seem just 30 years later.
