Expert Tips For Taking Photos Of Vivid Sydney At Night

The Vivid outdoor lighting festival kicks off in Sydney tonight, bringing three weeks of light sculptures, multimedia artworks and stunning building projections around the city. If you’re planning to chronicle the event with your camera, it pays to know how to get the most out of your equipment. Here are 12 indispensable tips from Canon Collective photographers Greg Sullavan and Colin Baker that cover the basics of capturing light at night.


This Amazing 145 Megapixel, Helicopter-Mounted 5-Camera Rig Is Aussie-Made

You might be proud of your home-made camera rig that lets you take steady shots by mounting your shooter to your belt buckle, but it’s nothing compared to the work done by Wayne Rogers and the folks at the Camera Clinic.


Canon's Rumoured 28-560mm Lens Sounds Comically Gigantic

Technology is strange. As some things get smaller, like smartphones, others grow in size… like smartphones. OK, bad example there. How about camera lenses? Sure, advances in optics have allowed us to cram three (and a billion) lenses into one, but when it comes to taking photos, sometimes you just can’t compromise. And Canon’s rumoured 28-560mm EF doesn’t sound like it will compromise, at all.


Can You Tell The Difference Between A $150 Camera Lens And A $15,000 One?

As any person with a bit of DSLR experience knows, the lens you use is as (if not more) important as the camera. But just how much does the average shutterfly have to spend to get “good enough” results? You’re not shooting the next Star Wars, so does it really matter if you don’t have $15,000 sitting around for a top-shelf Zeiss?


The Best Camera Bags And Straps

After doing more than 24 hours of new research and testing — including interviews with several professional photographers — on top of 60 hours previously spent reviewing camera carrying gear, we’ve found the best bags (both backpack and messenger style) and straps to keep your equipment organised and protected in the field.


Sony's a7R Mark II Is The Best High-Res Camera You Can Buy

If you’ve been using a digital SLR for the last couple of years, you might not have realised just how advanced new cameras have become. And Sony’s a7R Mark II is just about the most advanced of them all — apart from one small but surprisingly annoying issue, it’s just about the best camera you can get for capturing super-detailed high-res photos.


Build Your Own Classic Film Camera With A Raspberry Pi And 8mm Lens

“You can make [wacky project] with a Raspberry Pi and [oddball gizmo]!” I know, I know, it happens all the time. But this is the first I’ve seen in a while that isn’t a compact home theatre, home automation controller or cybernetic lava lamp.


Search Hashtags In Google Photos To Find Pictures Faster

Just like Gmail, Google Photos relies more heavily on search than a traditional folder system to organise photos, and there are a number of useful operators that can help you sift through your pictures in seconds. You can identify images based on location, subject, people, and even by camera type.


Canon EOS 1300D Specs And Photos (Unofficially) Revealed

It’s the internet, so of course we’re going to hear about the next instalment in Canon’s popular EOS series before the company gets around to doing it officially. Providing the details today is Japanese camera blog Digicame — we even photos of the thing.


Sony's New G Master Lenses Are Made For Pros, But The a6300 Camera Is For Everyone

Canon has its red-ringed L lenses for professional (read: cashed-up) photographers, and Nikon has its own gold-ringed competitors. Sony’s the newest entrant into the ring (ha, get it) with its G Master professional lenses; the first three pieces of likely-very-expensive glass for its full-frame E-mount cameras fill two of the three most-demanded focal length ranges for serious snappers.
