Photography News Week in Review: 10/4 to 10/10/2015
Each Monday (hopefully), we compile a list of the previous week’s best photography news from our own News Desk and around the web. And by “best,” we mean the things we stumbled upon and enjoyed and hope you will find interesting.
“David English: The Enigmatic 18” | Leica Blog
Tech writer and photographer David English writes about his experience shooting with an 18mm lens over on the Leica Blog. It is a fantastic tribute to a focal length that is often overlooked in favor of less extreme wide-angle lenses. As always with the Leica Blog, this article is worth reading just for the images, too.
“This camera is actually 16 cameras in one” | The Verge
The Verge takes a look inside the new (and potentially revolutionary) Light L16 camera, which uses 16 different camera modules to create much-better-than-smartphone pictures in a camera that isn’t much larger than a smartphone. Time will tell if this is true innovation or not, but for now, it’s interesting tech to read about.
“Nikon 200-500mm f/5.6 review: Game time” | Pro Photo Supply News Desk
We shoot Nikon’s latest budget super-telephoto lens at a football game to see how it does. In short, it does quite well. Read the full review for all the details and sample photos.
I can’t say we’re surprised by the news: Sony, who supplies over 40% of the world’s image sensors (and does a fine job of it), is letting its semiconductor division go its own way. Should you care? It’s probably business as usual for the consumer, as we predict Sony will continue to supply to world’s best image sensors for some time to come.
