Let's start off with Fuji's news this week, and then come back to Panasonic! Fujifilm X-A1, X-A2, X-A3, X-A10,... (read more) [...]

The United Nations Refugee Agency now reports that more than 420,000 people have fled Burma (also known as Myanmar) since August 24. The refugees, mostly Rohingya Muslims, crossed into Bangladesh to escape the violence in Burma's western Rakhine state—a situation the U.N. now describes as ethnic cleansing. Bangladeshi authorities are being overwhelmed by the new arrivals, and those crammed into the rain-soaked official and makeshift refugee camps are becoming desperate for food, water, and other basic needs.

No matter the answer, work of automotive photographer Easton Chang is sure to inspire awe from even the most subdued car fan.

So what is their next step? Well, apparently speed lights, with the announcement of the Profoto A1. Friend of Imaging Resource Zach Sutton is in Sweden for the launch, and was kind enough to give us the down-low as well as his first... [...]
