B&H certainly knows a thing or two about cameras, being one of the largest camera retailers out there, and that means they also know a lot about how people use their cameras. B&H has outlined seven common ways people incorrectly use their cameras in the video below. Are you guilty of any these mistakes? The first one is a mistake I used to make and see many photographers make, holding the camera incorrectly.

Throughout the 20th century, NASA (and its predecessor, NACA) made extensive use of wind tunnels to test and refine designs for airplanes, spacecraft, and many other vehicles and structures. Dozens of specialized tunnels were constructed over the years at Langley Research Center in Virginia and Ames Research Center in California, to test the effects of high windspeed, turbulence, icing, ionization, and much more. Some of these facilities were gigantic—the largest, still in operation, is the 80-foot by 120-foot tunnel at NASA's Ames Research Center. In the 1990s, a surplus of government wind tunnels and advances in computer simulations led to [...]

Click here to read our Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 II Review Announced back at CES 2017, the second-generation version of Panasonic's versatile 24-70mm-eq. f/2.8 zoom lens is, admittedly, a minor refresh to an already-great zoom lens. Despite that, the optical quality is still fantastic, the build quality is just as rugged, and there are small improvements, such as Dual I.S. and Dual I.S. 2 compatibility and updated autofocus, that most definitely make it a better pairing with modern Lumix cameras. The 12-35mm f/2.8 II won our pick... (read more) [...]

There's something particularly special about aurora photography. How else can you explain photographers heading out in the middle of the night just for a typically small chance at photographing the brilliant natural phenomenon? Even if you are fortunate enough to live somewhere near the poles, which grants you a much better opportunity at seeing and shooting auroras, there's still a lot of planning, luck and patience which comes into play. For photographer Mads Peter Iversen, the northern lights are one of his favorite subjects... (read more) [...]

The newest phase of Kilauea volcano’s ongoing eruption has opened as many as 20 new fissures on Hawaii's Big Island over the past two weeks, spewing lava and volcanic gases, forcing the evacuation of nearly 2,000 residents, and destroying dozens of homes near the town of Pahoa. Officials from the U.S. Geological Survey have been watching a recent lowering of the lava lake in Kilauea’s Halemaumau crater, warning residents and visitors of a possible explosive eruption that could launch car-sized boulders far into the sky. Here, a collection of images from the past week of the new fissures, the lava [...]

However, some physical filters cannot be replaced, including a polarizing filter and a solid neutral density filter. In the video below, David Bergman shows us the impact a neutral density filter has on your photography. With a neutral density filter, you can slow down your camera's shutter speed. This is achieved by reducing the amount of light that goes through your lens and onto your camera... (read more) [...]
