New video-centric Micro Four Thirds has incredible light performance, but has left some things out
If you do that video thing, then you’ve probably heard that Panasonic announced a new camera, the GH5S, as a companion to the very popular GH5 camera. While many on the interwebs immediately went into panic mode, worried that their beloved GH5 was already out of date — FRET NOT! The GH5S is a complement, not a replacement, for the GH5.

I handed a millennial a Leica Q, and you won’t believe what happened next. Hint: She took good and even great photos with it. Prior to me handing Emma Broback the Q, and putting down her avocado toast for a minute, she’d never heard of a Leica.

A visit to Canon’s service center in Lyndhurst, New Jersey
There’s no denying that for the professional photographer, support of gear is nearly as important as the gear itself.

Scanning at one photo a second, the Epson FastFoto makes quick work of the albums gathering dust in the attic

If you have an iPhone X, you know that regular 16:9 videos don’t fill the screen unless you pinch in, but then you end up cropping the top and bottom off the video. Plus, there’s that notch…. So, I set out to create a video that would fill the iPhone X 19.5:9 aspect ratio screen perfectly, and even do something fun with the notch! Check out the...

G-Technology G-DRIVE ev RaW SSD—a rugged, portable solid-state drive that goes with me wherever I work
It’s that time of year, and a topic I get asked most frequently at cocktails parties besides “Where’s the keg?” and “What’s a mirrorless camera?” is about workflow.
