Things don't always go according to plan out in the field. For landscape and travel photographer Thomas Heaton, he did everything right. He scouted his location ahead of time, he found the composition he wanted and yet, ultimately, you are at the mercy of the conditions when you're doing outdoor photography. In his latest video, Heaton is in dense woodlands. Light filters slowly in the woods, so patience is a must. While waiting for the right conditions, he shows off how critical a polarizer is, even when shooting in the woods.... (read [...]

As promised, DxOMark has continued to work on their medium format sensor reviews. Recently, they reviewed the Hasselblad X1D. Next up is the Pentax 645Z. The Pentax 645Z may be long in the tooth, having been released in June of 2014, but that doesn't mean that the 51-megapixel medium format sensor is outdated. The 43.8 x 32.8 millimeter sensor, which has the same specs as the sensor found in the Hasselblad X1D and Fujifilm GFX 50S, is 1.7 times larger than a full-frame sensor and it shows in the test results. The Hasselblad X1D... [...]

Toward the end of autumn, parts of northern India and Pakistan are frequently covered by a thick smog caused by a temperature inversion that traps smoke from burning crops, dust, and emissions from factories and vehicles—intensifying some of the worst air pollution in the world. This year the air quality has been particularly poor, causing flights to be cancelled, schools to be closed, and medical authorities to describe the situation as a public health emergency in recent weeks. Below, a few images of people navigating the smog in New Delhi and in Lahore, Pakistan. [...]

While Photoshop has replaced filters for some photographers, landscape photographers still by and large utilize physical filters for a variety of reasons. Polarizers in particular are nearly impossible to replace with software, but also graduated neutral density and solid neutral density filters have a well-deserved place in any landscape photography kit. Using filters can sometimes be a cumbersome experience, however, as many filter holder systems are not that enjoyable to use. Wine Country Camera released a new filter holder... (read more) [...]

The new Nikon D850 has turned a lot of heads for its wide array of features. One of the new features is its 8K time-lapse mode.

Nature photographer Marsel van Oosten took the Nikon D850 to Namibia and Botswana and captured glorious 8K still images to create the beautiful 4K time-lapse video seen below, "Hercules Rising." The video was downsampled to 4K from... [...]
