Canon tooks the wraps off two new compact PowerShot G-series cameras this morning. Both feature 20.2-megapixel, 1-inch CMOS image sensors but sit in different places in the G-series line.

Sony’s A-series cameras have gotten a lot of coverage in the photo press in the last few years with the recently introduced Sony A7R II receiving the kind of the pre-release hype not seen since the launch of the Canon 5D Mark II back in 2008.

We don’t know if this guy’s got water on his brain or not but he’s clearly got a screw loose. Check out his very ill advised technique for cleaning his expensive camera gear: deliberately soaking it in water.

Want a camera with the imaging power of a digital SLR that can fit in your pocket? Well, a Palo Alto, CA-based company called Light has an interesting new compact device that promises to be 16 cameras in one. Called the L16, the slender, rectangle-shaped device is stuffed with an arachnoid-like array of cameras and lenses, which combine with software to capture what the company claims will be DSLR-worthy images.

Over 2000 participants gathered in New York’s famous Central Park yesterday to join Yoko Ono in honoring the memory of former Beatle John Lennon on what would have been his 75th birthday. Their goal was to set a new world’s record for the largest human peace sign and while the effect is certainly impressive it was unfortunately not enough to actually break the current record according to the Guinness World Records (set in Ithaca, NY in 2009 with over 5000 participants).

Studio lighting hardware is going through the biggest change—a paradigm shift, really—since the flashbulb was invented in 1929. There are many trends and fads with LED’s popularity seemingly having equal parts of both. LED lighting also appeals to DSLR and mirrorless camera shooters who want to capture stills and video.

Dividing his time between his New York City and Paris studios, photographer Adam Savitch specializes in still life and motion studies for advertising and editorial clients, often with an avant-garde mindset. When it comes to lighting, Savitch believes in the old adage “less is more.” He doesn’t throw a light at every nook and cranny of his tabletop sets. Instead he mostly employs only one light and finesses its effect on the subject.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) officially refers to quadcopters as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) but they obviously have more in common with the kind of hobbyist’s radio-controlled aircraft that have been around since I was a member of the Poly Aeroneers in high school. Yet tech blogs and social media endlessly refer to quadcopters as “drones” when the only thing a General Atomics MQ-1 Predator and a DJI Phantom 1 have in common is that they’re capable of flight. But they’re not without some controversy.
