The Nikon D850 has proven not only to be a very impressive camera in our own testing, but it has been impressing users lucky enough to get their own hands on one as well. As we reported a week ago, the D850 is also the first DSLR to ever hit the century mark in DxOMark's testing, which is fitting for Nikon's 100th anniversary year. Its 45-megapixel sensor is not only impressive, but it is also very demanding of whatever glass you mount on the camera. While it can make a great lens shine, it can also expose weaker optics and...

In 2014, ISIS seized control of the northern Syrian city of Raqqa, and it soon became the de facto capital of the ferociously expanding Islamic State. Beginning in 2016, and building on progress made against ISIS in Iraq, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a U.S.-backed Kurdish-Arab alliance, started advancing on Raqqa. This summer, SDF troops supported by U.S. special forces fought their way into the sprawling city, accompanied by heavy coalition airstrikes on ISIS positions, reducing much of the city to piles of rubble. Thousands of civilians remain trapped in Raqqa, some used as human shields by ISIS militants, others [...]

"Does gear matter?" is a question photographers have worked to answer many times, sometimes with much disagreement . In his latest video, landscape photographer and educator Thomas Heaton has offered his own take on the question by comparing three images taken with different cameras. In this case, he runs the gamut from APS-C in the form of the Canon EOS M5 to the medium format Fujifilm GFX 50S with the full-frame Canon 5D Mark IV splitting the difference. In most cases, people view images at a low resolution. For many... (read more) [...]

It’s my favorite time of year once again—the autumnal equinox took place a few weeks ago, marking the end of summer and the start of fall across the Northern Hemisphere. Autumn is the season of harvests, festivals, migrations, winter preparations, and, of course, spectacular foliage. Across the north, people are beginning to feel a crisp chill in the evening air, leaves are splashing mountainsides with bright color, apples and pumpkins are being gathered, and animals are on the move. Collected here are some early images from this year, maybe more to follow in the weeks to come. Until then, I [...]
