Lots of photographers are obsessed with gear, as in, the best gear, the most expensive gear, the newest gear. But does it really matter? Would you be able to take a great photo with a cheap camera from over a decade ago?

The U.S. tariffs that recently have been threatened or imposed against China by President Donald Trump will doubtlessly affect the photo industry in one way or another. Many of us are concerned that we may be paying more for our camera gear in the future. Just how likely are price increases, and are rising costs the only things that should make us nervous?

It's an age-old question and, some would say, a myth. Do Canon cameras really capture better skin tones in portraits than Sony cameras?

Do you ever get the feeling that lots of landscape photos, even good ones, tend to look the same? Perhaps that's because everyone is using the same photography techniques to get the same looks in their images?

Out of the box, your new camera comes with all kinds of factory-assigned settings. Some of these default camera settings are useful, while others you'll quickly learn are counter-productive and even incredibly annoying: "How do I turn that infernal beeping off???"

There are lots of things that people tell you about photography that are just plain wrong. In fact, sometimes these popular photography "myths," if you follow them, actually make your images look worse.

Here’s a quick camera tip from travel photographer Pierre T. Lambert that’s worth trying out. It often seems like we’re all addicted to reviewing our images on the back screen right after we take them. And, in fact, there’s a camera setting that lets you immediately review the shots for a few seconds on the LCD display on back. (Most of you probably have it on.)

A week ago, we shared a somewhat controversial video where photographer Mattias Burling shared what he considers the “Top 5 Overrated Camera Features.” Now he’s followed that opinionated piece up with another video that goes in the opposite direction: “The Top 5 Underrated Camera Features.”

Cameras, these days, are so packed with features you'd need a guide book to figure them all out. And wouldn't you know it, more and more camera manufacturers have stopped including paper guide books with their cameras lately, so there are probably some features you've already given up on.

Over a year ago, photographer Pierre T. Lambert ditched his Nikon DSLR and bought a Sony A7R III mirrorless camera. Then, in a popular video on his YouTube channel, he went on to detail some of things he liked about mirrorless and some of the things he didn't. Now, in 2019, he has decided to take another look at the DSLR vs Mirrorless debate.

Should you hire a cheap photo editor to work on your images or will it do more harm than good? That's what photographer Irene Rudnyk decided to find out in her new video, "$10 vs $2 Retouch."

If you're just starting your career as a photographer, you're bound to make a few mistakes. And many of those mistakes, just might cost you money. Sometimes, a lot of money.

It's an oft repeated mantra of many photographers, particularly Canon shooters: "Canon has the best color science." But is it true? That's up for some debate but a frequently cited selling point for Canon over rival brands is what some believe to be its accurate color reproduction particularly when it comes to skin tones.

We have been, by and large, big fans of Canon's latest mirrorless cameras, including the recent full frame Canon EOS R and EOS RP. One area, however, has bugged us to no end. For left eye dominant shooters, using these cameras can be a bit of a nightmare.
