Aussie comedian perfect parodies ‘Humans of New York’ portrait

 

 

Aussie comedian Hamish Blake has taken to Instagram to parody a post from Humans of New York (HONY), a photo blog that intimately shares the stories and insights of people across the Big Apple.

Blake, who is traveling alongside his wife and son, was determined to be captured by Brandon Stanton, the man behind the camera of HONY – to such an extent that he shared the following Instagram post and impatient caption.

 

F this BS. I've been waiting on this street corner for about 6 hours now trying to get…

Canon G7X Shooter’s Report Part I: It’s all about the zoom for Canon’s first large-sensor pocket camera

 

 

When we published the first part of our Panasonic LX100 Shooter's Report last week, we pitted it head-to-head against the Canon G7X and Sony RX100 III, a duo of pants pocket-friendly, large-sensor enthusiast compact cameras for a real-world comparison. Truth be told, though, the latter two cameras are even closer rivals, sharing similar — or perhaps even identical — sensor designs, as well as closely-matched bodies in terms of size and feature set. Now, we return with the first part of our Canon G7X Shooter's Report, and it's…

Rat brains, bugs with gears and more in the winning images of Olympus’ BioScapes competition

 

 

Olympus has officially announced the winners of its 2014 BioScapes photo competition. From rat brains to the birth of a fruit fly, the microscopic images captured reveal a strange, beautiful world to us that we could never see with our own two eyes.

First place in the competition went to a video of a fruit fly growing (still pictured below). The recording was done in 30-second intervals over the course of 24 hours. In it, we catch a glimpse of how cells divide and differentiate within…

All your photo rights belong to us, says Time Inc. UK

 

 

Time Inc. UK is taking heat after announcing a change to its contract with its freelance photographers. The new terms require that freelance photographers surrender ‘all rights’ to images taken on assignment for the roughly 60 niche publications Time Inc. UK owns.

Interestingly, these cross-publishing rights are only applicable to Time Inc. UK’s niche publications, not its weekly TIME news magazine. Such an exception is small comfort to many photographers, though. David Hoffman, spokesperson for Editorial Photographers UK (EPUK),…

Yongnuo clones Canon’s ‘nifty fifty’ down to every last detail at half the price

 

 

Yongnuo, known maker of low-cost speedlights and radio triggers, is officially getting into the optics game. Continuing its tradition of ripping off products from the larger makers in the photography world, its first foray into the optics world is a ‘nifty fifty’ that is all but identical to Canon’s 50mm f/1.8.

This ‘clone’ as we’ll call it, is identical to Canon’s 50mm f/1.8 in almost every way: the typography, the placement of buttons, the focus ring and more. The only real difference is the lack of Canon branding and the price…
