Southeast Alaska, or the Alaska Panhandle, is a narrow strip of coastal islands and mountains that stretches more than 500 miles along the Pacific Ocean. It is home to Alaska’s capital city of Juneau, and was once the seat of power for Russian America, in the town of Sitka. Famed for its wildlife, lush climate, spectacular views, and the protected seaway known as the inside passage, the region has attracted humans since the first people crossed from Asia thousands of years ago. Collected here, a handful of recent images from across southeast Alaska. [...]

If you use Adobe software such as Lightroom and Photoshop, you may convert and save your RAW files as DNG files. This can improve performance, save space and offer other benefits. However, Tony Northrup argues in a new video, seen below, that it might be a mistake to rely heavily upon DNG files. There are advantages and disadvantages to DNG files when compared to your camera's native RAW file format (note that in some cases, camera's can natively save as DNG files, but it's often the case that your camera uses a proprietary RAW...

We've now compiled our lab testing results and published our full review of... [...]

However, in his latest video, we join Gibbs in the picturesque Lake District in the United Kingdom.

As he worked on finding a composition, he wanted to discuss an important topic. When you're in a new area which is... (read more) [...]

B&H certainly knows a thing or two about cameras, being one of the largest camera retailers out there, and that means they also know a lot about how people use their cameras. B&H has outlined seven common ways people incorrectly use their cameras in the video below. Are you guilty of any these mistakes?

Throughout the 20th century, NASA (and its predecessor, NACA) made extensive use of wind tunnels to test and refine designs for airplanes, spacecraft, and many other vehicles and structures. Dozens of specialized tunnels were constructed over the years at Langley Research Center in Virginia and Ames Research Center in California, to test the effects of high windspeed, turbulence, icing, ionization, and much more. Some of these facilities were gigantic—the largest, still in operation, is the 80-foot by 120-foot tunnel at NASA's Ames Research Center. In the 1990s, a surplus of government wind tunnels and advances in computer simulations led to [...]

Click here to read our Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 II Review Announced back at CES 2017, the second-generation version of Panasonic's versatile 24-70mm-eq. f/2.8 zoom lens is, admittedly, a minor refresh to an already-great zoom lens. Despite that, the optical quality is still fantastic, the build quality is just as rugged, and there are small improvements, such as Dual I.S. and Dual I.S. 2 compatibility and updated autofocus, that most definitely make it a better pairing with modern Lumix cameras. The 12-35mm f/2.8 II won our pick... (read more) [...]
