Canon’s New Workhorse Camera: The Canon EOS R6 Review

The Canon EOS R6 attempts to reclaim the workhorse camera throne from Sony, and it has more than a fighting chance of winning. The Canon EOS R6 has been living in the shadow of its bigger brother, the EOS R5, ever since the two cameras were announced earlier this year. Aimed at working professionals, the Canon EOS R6 seems to be slightly underweight compared to its main rivals. Still, this camera, which is powered by the same 20.1MP sensor and DIGIC X processor found in the 1DX III, has a lot of fight in it. Does the EOS R6 have enough about it to make the Sony a7 III, the Nikon Z6, and the Panasonic S1 throw in the towel? Find out in our full review. Pros and Cons Pros Fantastic ergonomics have returned to Canon camerasGreat build quality which includes excellent w...

Are There Really Three Years of Improvements in the Olympus E-M10 IV?

The Olympus E-M10 IV is the successor to a camera that came out a few years ago, and it feels great in the hand. The Olympus E-M10 IV is the company’s latest entry-level mirrorless camera. It incorporates some of the features of its higher-end siblings and most of all boasts a nice grip. But, we’re not sure if there have been enough improvement to make you upgrade or spring for it at the price point. So, we decided to talk about it a bit on the latest episode of Pro Camera Reviews. Olympus E-M10 IV: First Impressions Despite the impending sale of Olympus to the Japanese investment firm, JIP, Olympus has continued to push new products to market.

My Personal Best: Street Photographer Sofia Sebastian

<!-- My Personal Best: Sofia Sebastian --> I was born in Madrid, but I currently live in Washington DC. I was first introduced to photography while watching classic movies as a teenager but I went on to pursue a career in international conflict. I fell in love with photography as an art form in 2010 but my journey with street photography started recently by accident. After a year of waiting for my security clearance for a state department job, I got restless. When a friend asked me to join him in a street photography workshop I didn’t hesitate. I have been hooked ever since. As someone raised in a big city, the pace of everyda...

Along the Lagoon

Working on the Lagoon Photo I took about 300-400 photos of this lagoon at various times of the morning, day, evening, and night. It was always quite beautiful. Because so many photos came out strong, it gave me the chance to process them in a variety of ways. I think you’ll like the final treatment I gave this one…

The Wonderful Story of Street Photographer Jack Sharp

All images by Jack Sharp. Used with permission from Dylan Scalet. “I was told he fully embraced anything he ever took interest in,” explains Dylan Scalet to the Phoblographer in an email about his grandfather, Jack Sharp. “That meant when he took up Photography, he did all the research. Understood the mechanics of the camera, the science behind light, and the alchemy of the darkroom.” Mr. Sharp was a British engineer by trade at the famous CERN laboratories in Geneva, Switzerland, but was an avid photographer in his free time between 1950-1970. And by the looks of the archive tMr. Scalet sent us, his grandfather had a serious love of street photography akin to that of Vivian Maier and Pierre Crocquet. This isn’t too far off from what many of us do today–but the gear and how we do ...

The Strange Series: A Study Of Experimental Infrared Photography by Roland Krämer

<!-- --> At the beginning of March, I started experimenting with infrared photography. I was fascinated by the possibility of creating pictures with waves of light that we cannot see with our own eyes. Infrared light (780nm to 1mm) is electromagnetic radiation that has longer wavelengths than those of our visible light (380nm to 720nm). Cameras normally block the infrared wavelengths before they hit the sensor to maximize image quality. With the help of modified cameras (that have the filter removed that blocks the infrared light) it is possible to capture those wavelengths inside the camera. Special infrared filters help with blocking the visible light hitting the sensor to a certain degree. The reason for plants and trees being m...

Entry-Level Cameras Aren’t Cheap and Many People Just Need Their Smartphone

The smartphone camera has played an influential role in getting people into photography. “Hey, Dan. I wanted to ask your help on buying a camera. I have a budget of around $300.” It’s a question I get asked a lot, and one I struggle to answer, not because I don’t know what I’m talking about, but because how can I recommend a dedicated camera for $300 unless we look at the used and discontinued market? For what you can get for that price, one has to ask themselves if the one in your pocket is all you need anyway? Yes, your smartphone camera is just that good! Smartphone Camera Vs Dedicated Camera While smartphone cameras are exceptionally good, I still believe we’re yet to see one that can rival a dedicated camera. I feel a product that focuses on one task will do it ...
