Finding the right digital SLR camera flash is quite easy in some respects: it all comes down to cost.
Once you decide on a budget, the right flash solution will fall into place.
When it comes to digital SLR camera flash, you can spend anywhere from $100 to $10,000 — it just depends on how often you want to use your flash and what you want to use it for.
If you hate the look of on-camera flash and want a little something different, then there are plenty of low-cost alternatives to choose from.
But if you're trying to set up a professional portrait studio in the baseme..
The entry-level DSLR market has slowed in terms of product releases in recent years. Indeed it's taken three years for Canon to out the 1200D - that's Rebel T5 for our American friends - and while we don't mind waiting for the right kit to come along we do question whether the market has changed unrecognisably in that period of time.
The update to 2011's 1100D, the EOS 1200D is all about hitting an accessible price point. A lot of its features mirror that of its pricier, more feature-laden peers from the EOS range but wrapped in a more budget, plastic finish.
Performance relatively assur..
Olympus has announced its latest Tough camera, the TG-5. Following the family of Tough cameras before it, the new Olympus model is everything you expect it to be. There are chunky lines, exposed bolt heads, locks on all the flaps and so on.
Such are the hallmarks of a tough cameras, looking to offering something in the compact camera space that you can't do with your waterproof smartphone. Those mini computers have cannibalised the compact camera market, doing away with the need to carry another thing in your pocket.
The result is a camera that will withstand the sor..
YongNuo have announced a new Canon RT compatible flash in the YN968EX-RT Speedlite.
The YN968EX-RT feature an original case design (rather than a Canon 600EX-RT clone), also with a built in adjustable LED light located under the flash head.
Apart from these features YongNuo have not noted many differences from their original YN600EX-RT model.
Though if the YongNuo specs are correct, the YN968EX’s zoom is stated as a more limited 20-105mm, rather than 20-200mm. Which would also make the flash more powerful, with a Guide Number of 60m at..

Buying a camera: everything you need to know
By Verge Staff on July 30, 2013 12:41 pm
By David Pierce and Vlad Savov
Cameras are everywhere. There’s one in your laptop, two in your phone, and probably a pair in your tablet that you’ve never used. There’s maybe one in your doorbell, even, or strapped to your head while you bomb the slopes. We’re taking more pictures in more ways and sharing them in more places than ever. Yet most of us use our cameras with the bare minimum of knowledge, just pointing and shooting and hoping for an Instagrammable moment. An..
How can we define what’s a photo effect? That was my main concern when I started the research to build this list. Despite of this situation, I had one thing clear: the final result had to be quite different from the orignal picture and be recognized as a post production photo manipulation.
That idea would leave all kind of complex photo retouching and subtle color correction out of the discussion. I’ve already gathered some of those tutorials in my Guide to Photoshop digital makeover and 70 horror, blood and gore photoshop tutorials and brushes articles.
So, with that idea in mind, I gathere..

Republic of Ireland, March 2017 – Canon is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the launch of its world renowned EOS System
Canon’s EOS System made its debut in March 1987 with the launch of the EOS 650 SLR camera and EF lenses1 at a time when visiting your local pharmacy to develop your camera film was the norm. Thirty years on, the world has changed but the EOS systems remains a staple in the world of photography. Technology featured within the EOS system has helped create and inspire changes in the way people take photos.

Looking at how powerful Photoshop can be in terms of photo editing, it’s probably not important if you suck at taking photographs or being labeled an amateur photographer. As long as you picked up a couple of Photoshop photo editing skills, it will still impress those who sees it.

Canon announced two new DSLRs for enthusiast and entry-level photographers this morning: the EOS 77D and EOS Rebel T7i cameras. The Canon EOS 77D slots just below the 80D and just above the Rebel T6s in the company’s DSLR lineup. The Canon Rebel T7i, on the other hand, is the direct successor to the T6i, the company’s entry-level DSLR.
Shutterbug had some hands-on time with the two new Canon DSLRs ahead of this morning’s launch and have included those images in this story. While the design of the two cameras is slightly different and the 77D is aimed ..
Though it was announced late last month, the new 24-megapixel Pentax KP DSLR made its official debut at the WPPI show in Las Vegas this week and we put our grubby little paws all over this compact yet rugged APS-C sensor-based DSLR. What impressed us most was that despite the camera’s slim build – it weighs only 1.4 pounds and is small enough to fit into a laptop bag – the Pentax KP looks and feels like a serious pro-level DSLR.
It’s also weather resistant and while we haven’t had a chance to seriously test the new Pentax KP out yet,&n..

Just did some quick test on my OM-D EM10. Here are the results.
Angle of view comparison.
First of all, a comparison of the angle of view between 7.5mm and 8mm. The difference is quite significant. Normally a 7.5mm rectilinear lens in a MFT camera should have a 110° Angle of view while 8mm have around 107°. But it appears that the difference ..

Back at CES 2017, our most popular story was a blog post about how Kodak is bringing back its Ektachrome slide film. It was totally unexpected, but indicative of a serious rise in popularity for film photography. So, while there has been no official announcement about the return of Kodachrome (at least not yet), an intrepid film enthusiast named Kelly-Shane Fuller of Piratology Studios has figured out a process for developing Kodachrome in color.
For the unfamiliar, Kodachrome was one of the most iconic films ever made. It was a slide..

Another new year, another new round of juicy camera conjecture. Here’s your officially unofficial 2017 camera rumor roundup!
Expectations are high for camera releases in 2017. Just like in years past, we’ve rounded up the latest camera rumorsthat have appeared online. While a lot of last year’s camera rumors came to fruition, it seems a few might have been a bit too optimistic. So, keep in mind, there are no guarantees here — only hopes and dreams. Here are the best rumors for cameras we may see released in 2017.
Hi there There
Sony has announced the a6500, the successor to the well-received Alpha a6300 mirrorless camera.
In similar vein as the compact RX100 V also announced on Thursday, the a6500 builds on the success rather than offering too great an overhaul.
The 24.2-megapixel APS-C EXMOR CMOS sensor remains the same. However, it now has the world’s fastest AF lock at 0.05 seconds.
It also has 425 phase detection AF points, 'densely positioned over nearly the entire image area', which Sony claims is the world’s highest for an interchangeable lens camera.

After debuting the OM-D E-M1 Mark II back at Photokina 2016, Olympus has finally revealed a price and release date for the high-speed mirrorless camera.
If you're looking to pick up just the body, you're going to have to shell out £1,849.99, but if you're dismayed at the price, the good news is you haven't got long to wait until you can part with your cash.
The E-M1 Mark II will be available from December, when you'll also have the option of buying it with the M.ZUIKO Digital ED 12-40mm 1:2:8 Pro lens for £2,399.99.

Leica is going back to the future (again) with its newest digital rangefinder, the full frame, 24-megapixel M10. With this new model, which is the follow-up to the Leica M (Typ 240), Leica has trimmed the size of the M10, making it 4mm (1/8-inch) thinner than its predecessor. Part of that size reduction is due to the fact that Leica has gotten rid of the 1080p HD movie capture mode that was available on the previous model.
In a meeting Shutterbug had with Leica executives last week at which we were loaned a production version of the M10 to test out ahead of today’s launch, we were..

Olympus has introduced Pen-F, the same camera for the 8th consecutive time, hoping that consumer are too wrapped up in the Super Bowl or the duct tape challenge to notice. The “new” Pen-F has the same number of megapickles as the last 8 cameras, fits in the same camera bags as before, and uses the same lenses. There is literally no chance that a person replacing one of the previous 8 cameras with this new camera will in any way, shape, or form become a better photographer.
In an effort to be a retro green corporation, Olympus is even recycling the name. You may now resume your meaningless l..

Yes, it's true. The new Pentax K-1 is the first time Pentax has ever made a 35mm full-frame digital camera.
