There have been precious few Fujifilm X-T2’s out in the wild ahead of this morning’s release, but travel photographer Elia Locardi has had one for the last 2 months and he’s sharing a crazy dynamic range demo with us today.

If you’re less-than-impressed with lightning captured at 240fps by an iPhone 6 Plus, then let this photo act as our apology. Captured from 37,000 feet above the Pacific ocean, it is, without a doubt, one of the most spectacular aerial storm images we have ever seen.

This post will probably sound harsh to some, but I think it’s needed as street photography has a problem. It may be because of a so-called renaissance in street photography in the past few years, or just the fact it’s become fashionable, but the sheer number of terrible photos is quite impressive.

After a month plagued by leaked photos, specs and even a video at one point, Fujifilm finally got to officially unveil the exciting new Fuji X-T2 today. A speedy upgrade to the X-T1 that Fuji is calling “the ultimate mirrorless camera.”

If you’re a photographer shooting with Eyefi’s older generation Wi-Fi memory cards, here’s something you should know: your card will soon become more or less useless.

This quick demo is for those of you who can’t afford a nice strobe. Don’t think that being tethered to a speedlight means you have to keep that light on your hotshoe; getting a remote trigger and moving it off-camera can make a big difference.

Third-party lenses are getting better and better, and the latest lens to impress reviewers with its stellar performance is the Tokina AT-X 24-70mm f/2.8 PRO FX lens. In fact, it outperforms both of Nikon’s 24-70mm options and will only cost you a fraction of the price!

If you head over to Adobe’s website now, you’ll find a bunch of information on the company’s major Creative Cloud update that, as promised via teaser, just went live today.

And while you’re welcome to go digging through all of that stuff to try and ferret out what’s important for you, we’ve done the tedious work for you and summarized the important Adobe CC changes as they apply to photographers.

It’s not 7,207fps to be sure, but this hand-held slow motion iPhone video of lightning lighting up the sky above Ashburn, Virgina is still really cool—all the more so for how accessible shooting slow motion footage like this has become.

When Light unveiled its revolutionary L16 multi-aperture computational camera in October 2015, people were so excited by the device that the company blew past its first month sales goal in the first two days. Today the company announced that it has just raised $30 million in funding to change the way people take pictures.

While most photographers captured this year’s July 4th fireworks from below, Los Angeles-based photographer Aaron Keigher decided to find a different vantage point. He ventured up Mount Wilson, which rises over 5,000 feet above LA and create this dazzling time-lapse showing fireworks exploding across the landscape.

The Dronestagram social network, in collaboration with National Geographic, have announced the winners of their 3rd annual International Drone Photography Contest… and there are some real stunners among the top shots.

My name is Adam van Alderwerelt, and I’m an amateur photographer living in Maui, Hawaii. Out here, there’s only one location on the whole island that gets a permit from the local government to use aerial fireworks. Otherwise, it’s completely illegal.

There are a ton of tutorials online that will walk you through properly capturing or creating black and white photos, but this short video by photographer Jeff Rojas focuses on something different. He points out 3 things you may not have considered (but should) when editing any black and white file.

Remember 6 days ago, when we said tiny storage like microSD was finally getting the R&D love it deserved? We may have been on to something, because Samsung just introduced a new kind of tiny memory card that could leave microSD cards in the dust.

The standard, traditional camera strap puts a lot of strain on your neck and back—one of the reasons why so few photographers use one—but the Camera Lift-Strap changes all that. With a simple alteration, it moves the weight from your neck, to your shoulders.

Ouch. In a bid to ‘inspire their community,’ Huawei posted a beautiful portrait to show what you could do with the Leica-engineered dual-cam P9 smartphone. There’s just one problem… the photo was taken with a Canon 5D Mark III and a $2,100 lens.

National Geographic is, without a doubt, one of the foremost authorities in the world of photography. So when they rank their top 10 cameras for travelers, the entire photo industry perks up its ears and pays special attention to see what they have to say.

If film is “dead,” then the daguerreotype is a distant memory. But thanks to photographers like Binh Danh, this magical photographic process is still alive, well, and capturing some of the same epic landscapes it was being used to capture a century ago.
