I’ve had the great privilege of tagging along with Eric Kim for the Gulf Photo Plus (GPP) event in Dubai back in 2014 and 2016. GPP is an annual event: the region’s biggest and only photography festival, bringing the world’s best photographers and instructors to Dubai to share their knowledge and experience with the professional
[embedded content] There was a time when it was hard to even give Canon FD lenses away. I remember picking up a Canon A-1 and 50mm f/1.8 FD lens about 12 years ago at auction for £3. Both camera and lens worked flawlessly, too. Now, though, FD lenses have become a big hit with filmmakers.
In 2014, The Guardian columnists Sean O’Hagan and Jonathan Jones revisited an old question: is photography a fine art? According to Jones, a photograph could never compete with a painting on a gallery wall. But O’Hagan argued that it didn’t have to—photography is its own medium, independent of other art forms but no less worthy
[embedded content] Recently, we posted a video by filmmaker Joey Helms about his shiny new RED Komodo 6K camera, and five reasons why you might want to get one. He got a lot of questions asked in response to posting that video, so he’s created this 30-minute follow up to provide a full hands-on review and
A tricolored heron inches toward the muddy shores that a rival snowy egret has claimed for the afternoon. I lift my lens through my car’s sunroof and take aim. The mid-afternoon sun perfectly silhouettes them in the silvery water. Suddenly, the snowy egret takes off with a flurry of motion toward the tricolored heron. The
Sony is expected to announce a new entry-level full-frame mirrorless camera at some point in the next few weeks. We’ve heard some possible spec rumours about it already, and now it seems we might have a possible price point for it. And it looks well set to compete directly against the Canon EOS RP mirrorless.
The British Royal Residences, the Moulin Rouge, the Louvre, Crazy Horse Monument, the palaces and temples of Japan, the Olympic venues—some of the most photogenic places in the world are also off-limits for commercial stock photography. These rules are in place to protect the photographer, distributor, and client from any claims made by the owner
The SliderMini 2 is Smartta’s latest iteration of the SliderMini, its small form factor motorised slider. It’s largely the same as the original and you can read that review here, but it has received a couple of significant changes since the original that allows it to offer much more versatility. Like the original, the SliderMini
Great photography is at the core of everything we do at 500px, and we love to partner with brands that do the same. So when our friends at Luminar reached out with another great Quest idea for the 500px community we couldn’t resist. With over 30,000 submissions this Quest definitely lived up to its ‘dramatic’
Vazen is a relatively new Chinese lens manufacturer that only really seems to have come onto the scene last year. But they jumped straight in with the anamorphic lenses, initially launching a 40mm T2 1.8x for Micro Four Thirds and following it up in February of this year with the promised 28mm T2.2 1.8x for
It seems that the fives are all around lately. Nikon just announced the Z5, there are rumours that Sony is getting ready to announce an A5 (or A6) and now, according to Nokishita, it seems that Panasonic is preparing to launch the S5 – an entry-level full-frame L mount mirrorless camera to compete with the

[embedded content] Macro is a challenging subject to photograph. Light, especially, can be a real struggle, so you often need to add extra light to overcome the bellows extension factor inherent in all true macro lenses. But dedicated macro flashes and ring flashes can be very expensive (at least if you want a good one).
Decades ago, as the story goes, two photography legends—Henri Cartier-Bresson and William Eggleston—were seated at the same table at a dinner party in Paris. In many ways, Cartier-Bresson represented the old school of photography, one that preferred the elegance of black and white to color. Eggleston, on the other hand, represented the new generation, who
Those fast f/1.0 Fuji lenses have been rumoured for a long time. Fuji Rumors posted about an XF 33mm f/1.0 lens that would offer a similar field of view on Fuji X cameras to a 50mm lens on full-frame way back in 2015. Then it was added to the Fuji roadmap in 2018, with price leaks
Linas Vaitonis is a Lithuanian photographer who primarily works as an ecologist, but loves to explore the world through his photography lens. He focuses on surrealist themes and fantasies, action, mystery, spectatorship, the beauty of a woman against unusual locations, and atmosphere. Q: Linas, you’re based in Lithuania. Tell us about how your environment informs
Rumours of a potential entry-level full-frame Sony competitor to the Canon EOS RP and Nikon Z5 are not new.

Amid global lockdowns, online learning platforms have seen massive increases in interest worldwide. On Skillshare, for instance, daily viewers and minutes tripled from last year, and Udemy saw an online enrollment boost of more than 400% between February and March. In 2020, schools, universities, and institutions have all turned to remote learning, but so have
According to a report on Canon Rumors, Canon is going to be releasing some firmware updates for the Canon EOS R5 mirrorless camera.
