We’ve been at the WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International) show in Las Vegas all week touching and trying out the latest photo gear. One camera  we were particularly excited to see in person is the long awaited Pentax K-1 full frame DSLR.

It’s been a long time coming and now it’s finally here. Or, at least, very close to it. Pentax unveiled its long awaited K-1 full-frame DSLR last month and now Ricoh, Pentax’s parent company, has posted five sample images shot with the 36.4-megapixel K-1.

It’s 2016 and some Nikon D750 DSLRs are still experiencing problems. Nikon has issued yet another service advisory for the semi-pro, full frame DSLR this week, noting that a shutter shading problem that cropped up in July 2015 is now affecting more models.

Drones and wild animals don’t always mix and with good reason. Animals often see the noisy, swirling drones as aggressive predators and respond in kind, occasionally knocking the flying whirligigs out of the air.

Here are some tips I discovered when researching this month’s column. One was from my wife who uses this technique all the time—smile! And you know what, people smile back, making you appear friendly and non-threatening. The other was from Michael Archambault, who suggests you “acknowledge that street photography is not perfect.” Or as my grandfather once told me, “If you spend your whole life looking for happiness, it’ll make you miserable.”

Pentax’s parent company, Ricoh Imaging, has been teasing that it would be announcing a new full frame digital SLR for several months now and today that phantom camera was finally unveiled. Ricoh just introduced the long awaited Pentax K-1, which is equipped with a 36.4-megapixel full frame CMOS sensor about the size of a piece of 35mm film.

At least according to the above photograph (supplied by Canon USA, of course) and some anecdotes we heard from photographers who shot the big game, Canon’s lenses appeared to still dominate the sidelines at this past Sunday’s Super Bowl.

The new Canon EOS-1D X Mark II was unveiled last night and as with many pro digital SLRs aimed at sports photographers and photojournalists, the new camera has impressive speed. In particular, it can fire off bursts of images at 14 frames per second with auto exposure (AE) and predictive autofocus (AF) through the viewfinder, and 16fps with the mirror locked. (The previous model offered 12fps and 14fps burst speeds, respectively.)

Canon unleashed its newest flagship pro DSLR tonight: the long awaited 20.2-megapxiel Canon EOS-1D X Mark II. While this new flagship DSLR looks very similar to its predecessor, the Canon EOS-1D X from 2011, the Mark II has a numbdr of upgrades from that camera, which is still popular with pro photographers.

Phew, what a busy month it’s been for new photo gear! While the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas has not, traditionally, been a major event to debut high-end photography equipment, CES 2016 was definitely an exception with dozens of interesting imaging releases. (And hopefully this is a trend that continues at future CES events, which, in recent years have been rather ho-hum for photography gear.)

Canon held its once-every-five-years Canon Expo 2015 show in New York City last September where the Tokyo-based company pulled back the curtain on some potentially groundbreaking imaging technology. Part science lab and part marketing showcase, the event drew tens of thousands of buyers, dealers, and distributors of Canon products (along with a large group of journalists) eager to see what the company had up its sleeve.

Less than a month after Acme marketed what they unofficially considered their finest camera ever, I was having lunch with a particularly accomplished professional photographer. “I just got the camera,” he said. “I love it! It’s amazing! I can’t wait to see what Acme’ll do next!”
