Last weekend, after five years of construction and controversy, the tiny and isolated British island of Saint Helena welcomed its first scheduled commercial flight. Saint Helena, a British Overseas Territory in the South Atlantic Ocean, is one of the most remote islands in the world—a volcanic outcrop with an area of only 47 square miles. According to Reuters, the only way to access the island previously was by sea, “a five-night voyage from Cape Town.” The new airport, servicing the 4,500 island inhabitants with flights from South Africa, was built at a cost of $374 million. Construction was completed in [...]

Photographer Thomas Heaton's latest video opens up an interesting discussion about lens selection and prime lenses versus zoom lenses. The Zeiss Distagon 21mm f/2.8 has long been an important part of Heaton's gear bag, but after he purchased a Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 lens, he found that he wasn't using the Zeiss lens anymore because it wasn't worth switching lenses for the extra three millimeters of focal length. What about when he wants a significantly wider focal length though? Enter Thomas Heaton's newest lens, the Canon 16-35mm... (read more) [...]

This puts it into the budgetary hands of many hobbyists, as well as X-Pro series enthusiasts looking for a capable second camera body for their bag.​ But does the image quality hold par with its X-Pro2...

In a variety of places around the world, it's foliage season and photographer Nigel Danson recently released a new video full of tips and tricks for improving your autumn photography. One of Nigel's tips is to never leave home without a polarizer. It's always a good idea to have one for landscape photography, but Danson argues that it's particularly good for fall foliage photography because it reduces the reflections on the leaves and makes their colors pop a lot more. Another idea is to experiment with different lenses, perhaps... (read more) [...]
