If you want to find a way to a photographer’s heart, it’s through their lenses. Yes, as much as photography might appear to be a camera-obsessed culture, it’s the optics that matter most. Visit our website, Shutterbug.com, and you’ll see this clearly. We cover a range of timely photography news on the site, everything from product announcements to photo book reviews and features on gallery shows, but whenever a new lens is unveiled or we do a review of some quality glass from Canon, Nikon, Tamron, Sigma, or other companies, our readers flock to it.

Let say you have 50 Canon EOS-1D X professional digital SLRs lying around, and are looking for something to do with them. Here’s a fun idea: create a stunning bullet-time shot that appears to freeze the action, and then somersaults 360 degrees over your subject for an out-of-this-world effect.

The 24.3-megapixel Sony Alpha A7 II mirrorless, full-frame camera, which was announced in Japan nearly a week ago, made its official debut in the U.S. this morning. The Sony A7 II uses the same, 35mm-sized, 24.3-megapixel CMOS sensor as the previous model but the new camera adds 5-axis image stabilization, making it the first full frame camera with this feature.

Online photo portfolio services are a dime a dozen these days, but the lads at the London, England-based Pixelrights think they can offer something their competitors don’t: copyright protection for your images. Yes, you read that right. Not only are Pixelrights’ portfolios designed to showcase your online images in a clean, attractive way, they also have several built-in security tools to prevent your photos from being stolen and re-used without attribution, permission, or payment.

Every email I receive from Shutterbug.com writer Steve Meltzer these days is sadly familiar. “We’ve lost another one,” Steve will write while sharing news of the passing of yet another photographic master. The list is staggering, all men of a certain age (in their 80s) who’ve passed away in the last month or so.

Sony had a surprise camera announcement this morning: Sony Japan, that is. The Sony mothership in Tokyo unveiled the new Sony Alpha A7 II, a successor to the Sony Alpha A7, which was the first full-frame mirrorless camera on the market.

The very rare and very large Nikkor 6mm F/2.8 Fisheye Lens surfaces every once in a while and when it does, people’s heads turn. That’s exactly what happened when someone attached this whale-sized Fisheye to a Nikon D4S and shot some eye-catching footage (below) on a street corner in Copenhagen, Denmark recently.

Adobe has just announced that final releases of Lightroom 5.7 and Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) 8.7 are now available. These updates offer several key features including a new tool to import files from Apple’s now defunct Aperture professional software, and from its current iPhoto consumer imaging software to Ligthroom.

Technically speaking, the Nikon D750 is the follow-up to the Nikon D700, which was released six years ago. That’s a lifetime between digital camera models, and to say that the D750 is not nearly as groundbreaking as its predecessor from way back in 2008 is not a put-down of this new full-framer from Nikon. It just shows how far imaging technology has come and how much the D700 was ahead of its time.
