Photographer of the Day: Liza Van der Stock and her ‘Paradi$e Lu$t’ series.

Photographer Liza Van der Stock lives in Antwerp, Belgium. She studied sociology at the University of Ghent in Belgium and photography at the School of Arts nearby. Her documentary work is a blend of these two passions. It falls under the category of visual sociology, meaning she studies society through the use of images. Liza integrates her sociological background into photography to make photo documentaries that focus on relevant...

Lowepro Echelon Series Review: Don’t Just Get Somewhere, Arrive.

We spend thousands of dollars on cameras, optics, microphones, memory cards, rigs, computers, hard drives and tripods. We look at the latest from Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fuji, Phase One, Hasselblad and Panasonic and can’t wait to spend our dollars on the equipment and yet, increasingly, we carry around these thousands of dollars in frightening ways. I’ve seen cardboard boxes, tote bags and in extreme cases, plastic grocery bags. Sure,...

The Profoto B2 Review: Portability Maximized

The Profoto B1 might have been the best selling light for the company in their entire history, most certainly the best selling strobe in recent memory. But though the B1 freed photographers from the cord, it didn’t give them the true mobility that many were seeking. To answer that call, Profoto announced the 250 watt/second B2 battery off camera flash strobe, a light with at least four times more power than the top-of-the-line...

Nikon’s New Coolpix P900 Has a Ridiculous 24-2000mm Lens

If you wanted a point and shoot with preposterous zoom, then the Coolpix P900 might be for you. It has a ridiculous 83x optical zoom (24-2000mm equivalent) NIKKOR ED glass lens with the ability to reach 166x using Dynamic Fine Zoom and a super extra-low dispersion (ED) glass element. That element makes this camera ideal for capturing sharp images and videos from extreme lengths. Though not a particularly large sensor, it is a...

Nikon Has a New Wireless Lav Microphone

Along side the D7200 announcement tonight, Nikon quietly also announced a new wireless lavalier microphone: the ME-W1. It’s a weather resistant little bluetooth microphone powered by two AAA batteries that can wirelessly record audio in mono or stereo (when connected to the ME-1 stereo microphone) from up to 164 feet (50 meters) away.This is a curious addition to the lineup, as we generally don’t think of Nikon as a sound...

Nikon Announces the D7200 DX-Format DSLR

Nikon has announced the D7200, the follow-up DX-format DSLR to the popular D7100. Featuring a 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor with no optical low-pass filter (OLPF) and the EXPEED 4 image processing system, Nikon’s newest lightweight DSLR also adds increased buffer capacity compared to the D7100 as well as advancing the shooting and video features. It also comes built in with WiFI and NFC features. Nikon’s newest DSLR features a...

ReWrap Podcast Episode 2: Pratik Naik Guest Host, Affinity Photo Review, Mythbusters, and Konost Rangefinder

Alright, Episode 2 is in the books! This one is going to be hard to beat folks, as this week we were joined by high-end retoucher Pratik Naik who not only gives us his input into a wide range of subjects we cover (such as the new Konost Rangefinder camera mockup, celebrities releasing unretouched photos of themselves, Lytro’s bizarre industry shift, and the death of DSLRs to consumers), but also gives us his full review of the...

Virtual Reality Phone Calls May Soon Be A Reality

Imagine calling someone and suddenly being next to them with a full 360º view,  totally immersed. This could soon be a reality with the pairing of two very cool pieces of technology. Dailymail.com is reporting that Summit Tech is making this idea a reality by combining the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset and the Giroptic 360cam, the worlds first full 360º HD camera. This could make for the most immersive telephone...

The Arrival of the Wi-Fi Sniffing Drones

While there is no doubt that drones have taken photography to a higher level by producing amazing shots us ordinary photographers could only dream about before, the way drones are being used by other industries are creating both a buzz and a concern at the same time. Case in point – the number of drones seen flying all over Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley. After numerous reports have surfaced that these drones are...
