Android 11 Will Limit Third-Party Camera Apps to Protect User Privacy

A few weeks ago, it was discovered that Android 11 would limit third-party camera apps' access, essentially "forcing" apps to use the phone's built-in camera app even if you have a different app selected as your Default.

Tokina Reveals Plans for 6 New Lenses in 2020

In an announcement that would have been made at CP+ 2020 (RIP), the company revealed that it will be releasing a total of six new lenses: one APS-C lens for Nikon and Canon DSLRs, two full-frame lenses for Sony E-mount, and three APS-C lenses for both the Fuji X- and Sony E-mounts.

Review: Meike MK-MT24 is a Solid and Affordable Wireless Macro Flash

The Meike MK-MT24 is one of the most interesting lighting products I’ve ever used. The concept of this product is similar to some macro flash systems that have been on the market for years -- especially the Nikon R1C1 -- but while I knew of their existence, I’ve never once considered them due to their exorbitantly high price (the R1C1 is over $700).

That's set to change: Canon is now planning to supply Canon-made CMOS sensors to other companies for the first time in the company's history.

Yongnuo to Launch Thrifty Nikon 50mm and 35mm Prime Lenses Soon

Last year we reported that Yongnuo is planning to expand its third party lens lineup to include Nikon lenses by the end of 2015. If you've been eagerly waiting to get your hands on a cheap (and possibly look-alike) Nikon lens, your wait will soon be over. The company is planning to launch 50mm and 35mm lenses for Nikon cameras in the coming months.
