Pentax, which is no stranger to unusual strategies when it comes to cameras, announced that it was releasing season-themed photo profiles for a set of its DSLRs that would be locked behind specific lenses. Gotta catch ’em all, I guess? For more, read this week’s Clipped Highlights!
Additionally, this week we take a look at how Blackmagic’s new camera fits into a crowded compact camera market, dive into a what it was like to photograph Antarctica during a total lunar eclipse, explore how one Australian photographer put his life on the line when he flew a boat-plane 6,000 feet into the air, revisit Nikon’s exceptional 24-70mm f/2.8 S lens, and cap it all off with a wonderful portrait series by Barbara Peacock.
What is Clipped Highlights?
Clipped Highlights is a free, curated, weekly newsletter that will be sent out every Wednesday morning and will focus on a few of the most important stories of the previous week and explain why they deserve your attention. This newsletter is different from our daily news brief in that it provides unique insights that can only be found in Clipped Highlights.
In addition to unique takes on the biggest stories in photography, art, and technology, Clipped Highlights will also serve to feature at least one photo series or art project that we think is worth your time to check out. So often in the technology and imaging space we focus on the how and not the what. We think that it’s just as important, if not more so, to look at the art created by photographers around the world as it is to celebrate the new technologies that makes that artwork possible.
If this kind of content sounds like something you’re interested in, we encourage you to subscribe to the free Clipped Highlights newsletter today. You can read this week’s edition right here, no subscription necessary, to make sure it’s something you want in your inbox.
