Our previous video (see Camera Shutter Sounds Are Not All The Same And This Video Proves It) revealed that every camera make and model is capable of producing its own variety of unique sounds. This knowledge inspired photographer Benjamin Von Wong and Andrew Kesler—along with a few creative assistants—to experiment with and transform 14 Nikon cameras (provided by Nikon Professional Services Canada) into musical instruments and use them to create an amazing symphony of shutter and camera sounds.

Some photographers may think that every camera is only capable of making the exact same sound when the shutter is pressed (to capture a single shot or a rapid burst of images): that familiar soft metallic click. While that may seem to be true, in reality nearly every make and model of camera has a shutter sound that is quite unique.

Ricoh Imaging introduced the 24-megapixel Pentax K-3 II DSLR earlier this year. The Pentax K-3 II is the successor to the K-3 from 2013 and while it shares some features with that model, it adds a few new tricks, including an improved shake reduction system, a new high-speed AF algorithm, and built-in GPS.

We don’t know if this guy’s got water on his brain or not but he’s clearly got a screw loose. Check out his very ill advised technique for cleaning his expensive camera gear: deliberately soaking it in water.

Over 2000 participants gathered in New York’s famous Central Park yesterday to join Yoko Ono in honoring the memory of former Beatle John Lennon on what would have been his 75th birthday. Their goal was to set a new world’s record for the largest human peace sign and while the effect is certainly impressive it was unfortunately not enough to actually break the current record according to the Guinness World Records (set in Ithaca, NY in 2009 with over 5000 participants).

The Pentax K-S2 offers a more classical handling and design concept than its predecessor with a standard mode dial on the top and two setup dials for exposure parameters (one near the shutter release button, the second on the back of the camera). For menu navigation, it offers a standard control field, which uses four buttons to navigate or to select functions such as white balance, ISO speed, and shooting mode.

The new Canon EOS 5DS DSLR offers the first full-frame sensor camera with image resolution higher than 50MP. The camera is the successor of the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, which uses a 22MP sensor and was introduced in 2012. Canon offers the new EOS 5D series in two versions: the 5DS uses a standard low-pass filter to prevent moiré effects while the 5DS R uses a “low-pass filter cancellation” system, which means it doesn’t remove the filter from in front of the sensor but uses a filter system without a low-pass effect. We tested the “standard” EOS 5DS version.

Canon kicked off its once-every-five-years Canon Expo 2015 show in New York City yesterday where the Tokyo-based company pulled back the curtain on some potentially ground-breaking imaging technology. Shutterbug was on hand for the event, which is part science lab and part marketing showcase, along with thousands of buyers, dealers, and distributors of Canon products eager to see what the company has up its sleeve.

If you thought a 50.6-megapixel DSLR was impressive, you ain’t seen nothing yet! That’s the message from Canon, which just announced it’s developing a number of potentially groundbreaking new imaging products including a 120MP DSLR and an 8K Cinema camera and display.

Like pixels? Canon is certainly hoping so. The company announced it has developed a 250-megapixel (19,580 x 12,600 pixels), APS-H-size (approx. 29.2 x 20.2 mm) CMOS imaging sensor.

The Nikon D7200 will seem quite familiar to those who have worked with the forerunner D7100: indeed, the image sensor of the new D7200 is basically the same. It offers 24MP resolution, but now has a higher “standard” ISO range up to ISO 25,600 (which was the High or “push” mode” offered by the D7100) that can now be expanded to an ISO 102,400 equivalent, albeit in monochrome mode only. These higher speed settings are possible because the D7200 uses a new image processor dubbed “Expeed 4.”

Earlier this year, we told you about a special Filmmaker's Kit from Nikon that bundled a D750 DSLR with a collection of prime lenses and a bunch of other video goodies to help shoot high-quality movies. Now Canon has gotten into the act with its Video Creator Kit, which is available for pre-order from B&H Photo.
