The 20.3-megapixel Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 is the follow-up to the GX7, which was the top model of the viewfinder style G series mirrorless cameras. Like the GX7, the Panasonic GX8 looks like a classic rangefinder camera, but has a tiltable electronic viewfinder that uses a high resolution OLED display with 2.36 million RGB dots.

To make a better lens, one that avid photographers might even be inclined to leave on their DSLR camera permanently, Tamron set aside all of their former notions about lens design and construction and went straight back to the basics with the new Tamron SP 35mm f1.8 Di VC USD (Model F012) and SP 45mm f1.8 Di VC USD (Model F013) prime lenses, which are the subjects of this review.

There are few things that can get a man’s heart pumping like a new camera and a legendary car race to test it out at. Or at least that’s how I felt when I got a chance to take the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 for a spin at the Indianapolis 500 in May.

Photojojo Ring Flash Adapter: This handy, portable device is made for use with your DSLR camera and most external flash units. The Ring Flash Adapter is an easy to use reflective circle that attaches to the front of your external flash unit using a durable nylon strap. It requires no batteries (or cords) because it uses the flash you already have. It will give your photos a soft, even glow and won’t fill your gear bag or studio with bulky, expensive, hard to use equipment. The suggested retail price is $40.

A popular option for many photographers looking to print images at up to 17 x 22 inches has been the Epson 3880 printer (and before that the 3800). Essentially an affordable option to Epson’s professional level 4800 and 4900 printers, the Epson 3880 and 3800 use smaller ink cartridges and forgo the ability to use roll paper. It’s been several years since this photo printer lineup has been updated, so when Epson gave me the opportunity to review their new 17-inch SureColor P800 I was interested to see what they were able to come up with to improve an already very good printer.

Sony annouced today that the A7S II, which hits stores in October, will give photographes the option of shooting compressed or uncompressed 14-Bit Raw images.
