The Lens Bracelet: Transform your passion for photography into a unique fashion statement for yourself or someone you love. The Lens Bracelet is a soft silicone replica of the focusing ring of a lens featuring the embossed lettering you’d normally find there like 50mm, AF/MF and even lens grip ridges. This bracelet is one size fits all (7 inches) and since everyone has a favorite lens type, you can choose the focal length and camera that best represents you: 50mm prime in Canon or Nikon, 24-70mm zoom in Nikon, or 70-200mm in Canon. Two bracelets are included in each set. The Canon set has a retail value of $25, the Nikon Pro set is $25 and the Original set is just $15.

The company has not yet announced pricing or availability for this somewhat unusual piece of premium glass.

If I had to choose a single lens to use for the rest of my mountain life, without question it would be a wide-angle zoom. In my case, it would be Nikon’s AF-S Nikkor 16-35mm f/4G ED VR wide-angle zoom lens. (But anything similar would probably do the trick as well.) I would choose this over a fixed lens, which would be slightly sharper, because it offers versatility to shoot both landscapes and action with more focal lengths.

Lowepro designers and engineers must gather around the workbench with a pile of camera bags and challenge each other to improve features—large and small—that are already pretty damn good to begin with. That’s the only way I can explain how their bags keep getting better and better. The updates to the Lowepro Pro Runner series, introduced in late May, prove my point.

We recently featured an amazing image of a dancer by photographer Jordan Matter on Shutterbug.com (it first appeared in the April 2015 issue of Shutterbug magazine) and got such a great response to it and the story behind it, we decided to check in with him again on another shot of hiis that's getting lots of buzz.

DxO, the Paris, France-based company known mostly for software, introduced an intriguing new piece of imaging hardware this morning: a 20.2-megapixel camera with a 1-inch sensor and an f/1.8 lens that fits in your pocket and attaches to an iPhone. Called the DxO One, the 3.8-ounce, 2.65-inch tall camera, connects to an iPhone via the phone’s Lightning port, creating what the company hopes will be a photographic one-two punch to conquer the smartphone conundrum: that is, how do you shoot DSLR-quality images from a slender, inherently limited phone.

Canon just took the wraps off of a very cool new camera: the PowerShot G3 X, which boasts a 25x optical lens with image stabilization and a one-inch, 20.2-megapixel CMOS sensor. For those keeping score at home that means this relatively compact camera has a zoom lens equivalent to 24-600mm with an aperture range of f/2.8-f/5.6.
