The UK’s Ministry of Defense is being sued by eight soldiers who are suffering PTSD after a Royal Air Force pilot’s Nikon DSLR caused a Voyager transport plane carrying 198 soldiers ti plummet towards the sea.

Canon’s on a roll with these crazy patents, and while they may not amount to much in the end, an editor can dream can’t he? They already made headlines with their insane 40-800mm f/4.5-5.6 patent, and now Canon has developed an optical formula for not one, but two EF 28-560mm f/2.8-5.6 lenses.

If you want to own one of the rarest Nikon lenses in existence, now is your chance. A Nikkor stereo 3D lens from the 1950s has surfaced in an eBay auction.

Want to see light pollution changes photos of the starry night sky? Photographer Sriram Murali’s new time-lapse short film will show you. Titled “Lost in Light,” it shows different locations with progressively lower levels of light pollution.

Check out this curious 25-second time-lapse/composite video that shows every airplane that landed at San Diego International Airport on Black Friday a week ago between 10:30am and 3pm. The giant planes whiz by overhead as if they’re part of a fighter jet squadron heading off to battle — not something you’d expect to see with commercial planes at an airport. It was created by photography and film professor Cy Kuckenbaker.

The folks at National Geographic just did a solid favor for all the adventurous outdoor photographers out there. They put every US Geological Survey (USGS) topographical map from across the United States on one easy-to-navigate site and made them easy to print out at home.

We’ve shown you Getty’s Olympic stockpiles and Canon’s massive gear room, it’s only right you get a peek inside Nikon’s operation as well. These photos by Photo News photographer Vincent Kalut show, yet again, the amount of gear these companies have to haul to massive sporting events like this.

It may seem counterintuitive, but even a sports action photo can tell a story in a 1/1000th of a second, and the Rio Olympics men’s 200m butterfly final provided a perfect opportunity to analyze the role of not only the decisive moment, but decisive position in telling a story.

If you’ve been interested in trying your hand at real estate photography for some spare cash between assignments, this short video guide by photographer Troy Nikolic a great place to start.

There is no shortage of technical photographic advice out there on the Internet—buy this camera, read this book, and memorize these rules of composition and you’ll be great! But the process of becoming a great photographer is more subtle than that.

Here’s a new comic by xkcd about the rise of compact cameras with ridiculous zooms. Titled “Superzoom,” the hidden caption reads: “*click* Let him know he’s got a stain on his shirt, though.”

The Nikon. Why do I use The Nikon? The only real answer is that if you don’t already know, I can’t explain it, you just have to do it yourself. But I’ll try.
