The Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art is the world's first F1.8 constant aperture zoom lens

Third-party lenses are sometimes looked down upon by the sort of photographers who insist you can only take a good photo if your lens says Canon or Nikon on it. But, not only do some outperform their branded counterparts, others do something which mean they don't even have first-party rivals. The new Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM Art, for example, is the world's only zoom lens to achieve a maximum aperture F1.8 throughout the entire range.  Read More

The WoW Lens case

The iPhone comes with a competent camera out of the box, but it could be better. We've seen a set of the third-party lenses called the iPhone Lens Dial that provides all kinds of creativity options for photographers, but it's a little on the large side, and probably not something you would want to have on your phone all the time. The WoW Lens features a similar design, but it's quite a bit smaller and much more likely to remain on the iPhone even when not in use.  Read More

The AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR will ship with a 1.25X teleconverter.

Nikon has revealed a pair of new lenses which sit at opposite ends of the focal length spectrum. The NIKKOR 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G ED zoom offers an ultra-wide angle on FX cameras and is suited to large group shots and architecture; while the NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E is designed to cater to any super-telephoto needs you might have … if you've got the US$17,900 budget to buy one.  Read More

If your camera is exposed to excessive humidity, you'll want to make sure it's dried out properly when you pack it away – because it's never fun to find lens-killing fungus on your expensive glass. While most of us do this by carefully wiping down equipment and throwing a few silica gel packets into a kit bag, BRNO has released a range of dehumidifying lens and body caps to do the job.  Read More

Sony has revealed a pair of new E-mount lenses for its NEX range of mirrorless cameras. A 20mm F2.8 pancake, while not the prime telephoto some NEX shooters have been crying out for, gives a good wide walk-around lens, and the new (but not quite new) 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 OSS boasts impressive video-friendly credentials.  Read More

The Dust Donut is essentially a rubber gasket which attaches between a lens and camera

Dust and moisture are the natural enemies of DSLRs. If they get into you camera they can cause all sorts of problems ranging from dust on the sensor and image degradation, to fungus growing inside a lens. The Dust Donut is a simple idea designed to solve the problem of non-weather-sealed lenses by adding a seal between your camera and lens.  Read More

The DSLR Wheel of Filters can be used on Canon or Nikon cameras

Some people think photography is about capturing images which are perfectly composed, tack-sharp, distortion-free and have amazingly life-like colors. If you're one of them, look away now! The DSLR Wheel of Filters is a plastic lens and wheel attachment which lets photographers use their DSLR to take decidedly lo-fi and filtered snaps which look like they've come from a toy camera.  Read More

We've seen multi-lens attachments for iPhone before, of course, notably the iPhone Lens Dial, but the iPhone 5's change in form factor inevitably ushers in a new wave of such devices. The TurtleJacket PentaEye from Turtleback is among the early runners and riders, and crams in an impressive four lenses to the Lens Dial's three.  Read More

A professional photographer needs to be able to grab their camera and any equipment at a moment's notice, and Kata has been producing camera bags with this in mind for years. For its newest lightweight bag, the company seems to have taken some inspiration from a style of handgun, to produce a backpack that can help swap lenses much more efficiently. The Revolver-8 PL backpack stores a DSLR camera and dispenses up to five lenses from a rotating internal chamber that can be readily accessed through a side opening.  Read More

The MIT metamaterial lens

We expect the world to be predictable. Water flows downhill, fire burns and lenses bend light in a particular way. That worldview took a jolt as Isaac Ehrenberg, an MIT graduate student in mechanical engineering, developed a three-dimensional, lightweight metamaterial lens that focuses radio waves with extreme precision. That may not seem too disturbing, but the lens is concave and works in exactly the opposite manner of how such a lens should.  Read More
