How to take photos in the dark

 

 

This may not be the most educational photo tip I’ll do this year, but I’ll be proud of myself if I come up with anything more fun. It’s one part science fair project, one part after-dinner parlor trick, and one part miracle. This is really astounding. I hope all of you do this and I hope you bring a kid along. It’s really unforgettable.

You’re going to take a picture in the dark and I do mean dark like you can barely see your hands in front of your face dark. I mean pretty darn dark. So this is going to happen at night.

It might not be an official app, and it may not last long, but Uploader for Instagram is the first app for OSX that allows you to upload your photographs through your computer, rather than your mobile device.

Sony FE 24-240mm Gallery: We post initial sample images from this 10x full frame vacation long zoom

 

 

The Sony FE lens lineup continues to grow in both prime and zoom categories, now offering 5 primes and 6 zooms total to date. The most recent to arrive at our lab is the FE 24-240mm f/3.5-6.3 OSS, a 10x full frame long zoom offering for the A7 series of cameras.

Covering everything from the classic 24mm wide angle to a fairly robust 240mm zoom range (and 360mm eq. when strapped on a crop-sensor Sony like the A6000!) this lens is clearly aimed at anyone looking for versatility in an all-around package, or as a convenient…

Sony patent shows off curved, full-frame sensor and accompanying lenses

 

 

A new patent from Sony, published March 19th, shows off what could very well be the schematics of the first full frame camera with a curved sensor.

Even the abstract of the patent is a bit complicated in nature, but in essence, it describes a full-frame image sensor that would allow future lenses to be more compact in size without sacrificing quality.

Sony didn’t just tease a nonexistent or single lens though. They’ve provided the full specs for multiple lenses. However, the specs shared aren’t likely what they’ll be advertised…
