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..

Go Layer>New Adjustment Layer>Vibrance and reduce the Vibrance to “-60”.
Next select the Vibrance layer in the layers panel and specifically choose the layer mask. In the Properties Panel (Window>Properties) select the “Invert” button to fill our mask with black to hide the desaturation that we just imposed on the Vibrance layer.
Next select the Brush tool (B) and I’ll grab a small, soft edged brush and look to the control bar across the top of the screen and set the Opacity to “50%”. Paint over the teeth you’d like to w..
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..
My name is Ling, I have just got a prototype of the Laowa 7.5mm from Venus Optics, can’t wait to test it together with the SLR magic 8mm just arrived!!
(left) SLR Magic 8mm f/4 (Right) Laowa 7.5mm f/2.
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 ..
