Sigma 17mm f/4 Contemporary Review

Sigma 17mm f/4 DG DN Lens Review: Good Things Come in Small Packages

There just aren't a lot of ultra-wide full-frame prime lenses to choose from. There are plenty of zoom lenses to choose from, however, compact dedicated ultra-wides are in short supply. Cue Sigma to save the day with its brand new Contemporary series 17mm lens. But is this the hero we were looking for?

DPReview Leaves Massive Shoes to Fill

How I feel about losing DPReview is difficult to put to words. The brand has been a mainstay since I took up a camera and the space that they leave now is one that I don't think will ever be properly filled again.

Canon Cracked Image

Canon Has an Image Problem

Canon has an image problem and I'm not talking about photos. The company currently has a battle on three fronts when it comes to the perception of its brand: no third-party lens options, the actions of its printer division, and the company's stance on climate change.

Photos taken with micro four thirds

Your Disdain for Micro Four Thirds is Misguided

Micro Four Thirds (MFT) is perhaps the most derided of all camera formats in modern digital photography. It is constantly overlooked, scoffed at, and is the subject of disdain. It really shouldn't be, and you all are way too hard on it.

Ricoh Pentax faces a defining moment

Ricoh Pentax: The Beginning of the End or the Start of a Bright Future?

Ricoh seemingly made the significant announcement that it would cease the mass production of digital cameras (which includes the Pentax brand), shifting instead to a direct-to-market model. For now, it only affects its business in Japan, although the ramifications could affect its business more widely. What does this mean for Ricoh (and Pentax) and their future?

What is the difference between lightroom and lightroom classic

Lightroom Classic and CC Are Nearly Identical, So Why Two Programs?

When Lightroom CC originally launched it was woefully behind Classic from a features perspective. Photographers who had come to expect certain tools and performance were greeted with an underpowered CC, and few gave it a second glance after that. But now, nearly five years later, those same photographers might not know that they are nearly identical now. So then, why do we have two versions of the same software?

Leveraging Visual Language and the How to Capture ‘Mood’ in a Photo

I often hear photographers express frustration with their images, saying something like, "My photographs don't capture what I really see." But cameras actually do a great job of capturing what things look like. I think what people really mean is that their photographs don't capture what they felt when they made the exposure.

Leica M11

The M11 is Proof Leica Should Stick to Rangefinders

Leica has historically been known for rangefinder-style cameras but has branched away in recent years. But if there is one thing the company should take away from the praise the new M11 is getting, it's that it should stick with what it's good at.

Instagram on phone over a pink table

Stop Hoping for an Instagram Replacement – Diversify Instead

Instagram is well on its way to no longer being a photo-sharing app, and those who rely on it for their business are left questioning the future. If and when the day comes when Instagram is no longer viable, where can photographers turn?

Study Confirms There is Still Demand for New Film Cameras

I am sure that film lovers will not be surprised to read that the recent resurgence of analog photography is not just a passing trend. In fact, the demand for a revitalized analog photography industry could not be more evident.
