The Canon Rebel T6s and T6i are based on the same camera design: Both use an APS-C sized sensor (Canon's “APS-C” with 22.9 x 14.9 mm) with a resolution of 24MP. They also use the same image processor, the DIGIC 6. However, there are some design differences. While the TS6i looks like a little modified version of its forerunner T5i, the design of the T6s is more reminiscent of the mid-range SLR system EOS 70D. The illustrations provided show the differences in design and setup between the two models.

Olympus has introduced two new premium M.ZUIKO Digital PRO lenses: the M.ZUIKO Digital ED 7-14mm f2.8 PRO lens (an ultra-wide-angle zoom with a 35mm equivalent focal length of 14-28mm) and the M.ZUIKO Digital ED 8mm Fisheye PRO lens, (f/1.8 aperture, with a minimum working distance of just 2.5cm).

The M.ZUIKO Digital ED 7-14mm f2.8 PRO is ideal for wide-angle shooting in any weather condition. It includes weather sealing in 11 locations, enabling use in rain and snow or even on the beach—facing the hazards of ocean spray and dust. At just under 19 ounces, the M.ZUIKO Digital ED 7-14mm f2.8 PRO is about 45 percent lighter than similar lenses.

I’ve often wished I had a camera that could go from 24mm to 2000mm at the touch of a button and without being weighed down by a ton of glass. Okay, maybe not all the way to 2000mm and perhaps not in a power zoom, but you get my point. The Nikon Coolpix P900 superzoom (super-duper-zoom?) camera gives you that reach in a fairly compact body, relative to a lens with such a broad range of focal lengths.

Here’s another photography list for you. Like any list of the best of anything, this list is subjective. Even if it were the “most useful,” “most thoughtful” or “funniest” quotes about photography, it would still be subjective.

Designer toys got their start in Japan and China but their uniqueness (and the fact that they are so freaky/cute) soon propelled them to red-hot global collectable status. Produced as limited editions, some of these vinyl creations can be worth thousands of dollars to dedicated collectors.

Nashville-based photographer Ryan Roberts began by creating whimsical images of vintage toys but he soon discovered the odd (and a bit warped) world of designer vinyl toys by artists such as Frank Kozik (Mongers Menthols series), Doma (Acid Sweeties series) and Pete Fowler (Monsterism series). It was then he knew he had the perfect photo subject for the fantastic scenes he saw in his head.
