How to remove chromatic aberration in Adobe Lightroom 5

Chromatic aberration (CA) or color fringing is an annoying property of cheap camera lenses, and even pops up on top of the range glass like Canon's L series. Luckily, it's very easy to correct in Adobe's fantastic Lightroom 5. We'll walk you through how it's done.  Read More

The Snapzoom allows a smartphone to take telephoto snapshots through a set of binoculars

Chances are that you already carry a smartphone with you wherever you go, and if you're a wildlife-watcher, hiker, or sporting-event spectator, then you likely also have a pair of binoculars. Well, the Snapzoom is a new product that brings those two devices together – it lets you get telephoto snapshots of distant subjects, by holding your phone's camera lens in alignment with one lens of your binoculars. I recently got a chance to try the thing out for myself, and liked what it had to offer.  Read More

Gizmag goes hands-on with the Lomography New Petzval Art Lens

The Lomography New Petzval Art Lens is not your typical new camera lens. It's a brass-barreled manual focus prime, with no electronic contacts, and aperture that's controlled by dropping a selection of little plates into the barrel. After being funded on Kickstarter, the quirky lens has now made its way into the real world, and Gizmag recently got a chance to go hands-on with one.  Read More

The GoPhone lets an iPhone 5/5s and a GoPro Hero 'be as one'

Despite the incredible popularity of the GoPro Hero actioncam, it still lacks one very basic feature – a viewfinder. You can use your smartphone as a remote viewfinder via the camera's Wi-Fi signal, but for users who want to get hand-held shots, that involves holding onto two devices. That's where the GoPhone comes into the picture.  Read More

The H5D-50c is the first medium-format camera from Hasselblad to use a CMOS sensor

After teasing the H5D-50c in January, Hasselblad has now officially launched its first medium-format camera equipped with a CMOS sensor. This means the new 50-megapixel – and US$27,500 – camera features improved high ISO performance, better capture rates, and faster Live Video than its predecessors.  Read More

The EyeSee360 360Fly camera captures interactive panoramic video

Though moving around panoramic photos can feel fairly natural, the ability to do so in a video still feels a little unusual. Perhaps it's because there's a sense that you're always missing part of the recording. Nonetheless, panoramic video is gradually moving into the mainstream, with EyeSee360 announcing two offerings that will join the market later this year.  Read More

Uneasy Lies the Mind was shot on an iPhone 5, using cinema-quality lenses

While the folks at Apple would undoubtedly love it if filmmakers everywhere ditched their high-end video cameras for iPhones, the fact is that the phone's tiny lens, sensor and other features are no match for those on something like the RED Scarlet X. It was those limiting factors, however, that made the phone an ideal choice for the recently-completed indie psychological thriller, Uneasy Lies the Mind. It's being promoted as "The first narrative feature film to be shot entirely on the iPhone."  Read More

Gizmag goes hands-on with the soon-to-be-released Nikon D4S professional DSLR

The Nikon D4S will soon be making its way into the hands of professional photographers who have decided to upgrade to the flagship US$6,500 DSLR on the promise of improved speed and low-light performance over its predecessor, the D4. And if our brief hands-on with the camera at The Photography Show in Birmingham, UK, is anything to go by, it looks like they won't be disappointed.  Read More

The Pack works with Hero3 and Hero3+ cameras

A couple of months ago, Sena released its Prism actioncam. Among other things, it allows users to add their own narration to footage as it's being recorded, via Bluetooth. Given that the GoPro Hero is still the actioncam of choice, however, Sena has now announced its Bluetooth Audio Pack, that lets users of that camera do the same thing.  Read More

The D4S is the latest flagship professional DSLR from Nikon

When Nikon teased the development of its new flagship professional DSLR in January, it was somewhat coy about divulging any exact specifications. But now that the Nikon D4S has been officially revealed, we know it boasts a newly developed 16.2-megapixel sensor, Nikon's new Expeed 4 image-processing engine, and the ability to shoot at almost ridiculously high ISOs.  Read More
