There's a bit of crossover when it comes to the lexicons of cameras and weapons (aiming, shooting, etc.) so it's no surprise that someone would be inspired to find a way to combine them. Photographer and artist Jason Siegel decided his take would be a literal fusion of familiar camera components to create fake guns, explosive and other wartime paraphernalia as part of his "Shoot Portraits, Not People" exhibit.

Conceptually, a camera lens isn't a complicated piece of kit. Still, the quality of images photographer Mathieu Stern managed to take with his 3D-printed lens, featuring a single front element and mounted on his Sony Alpha 7ii, is still surprising. Only the blur and distortion in the corners gives the game away.

Hiya Gizmodo! My 15 year old son has really started getting into photography — it has quickly become one of his favourite subjects at school. I'd love to get him a decent camera (under $1000) that can grow with him and his skills, for a few years at least. What's the best direction to go in? Cheers, Mum

GoPro's Hero4 Session is a great little action camera: it's waterproof, captures high quality video, and it's ridiculously simple to use. There's literally one button to turn it on and start shooting. Sound good? OK. You can buy one for a ridiculously cheap price on eBay at the moment.

There's something oddly visceral about antique cameras. They're so darn mechanical compared to the digital devices we use today, you can almost taste the photos being created inside. True, you might just be high on developer fluid, but it would be a small price to pay to simply be in the same room as this 4x5 Arca-Swiss, once owned by photographer Ansel Adams himself.

Recently, photographer Markus Hofstaetter had the job of capturing a beautiful shot of a hotrod for its owner. OK, but what makes this particular task special? The image had to be 300 megapixels large. While some might have balked at the request, Hofstaetter saw it as an opportunity to pit his digital and analog cameras against each other. Which one came out on top? That depends.

If you get outside into the great outdoors, then you know GoPro. You probably also know about drones. You might even already have one. If you don't, then get ready to knock out two birds with one stone; GoPro has a drone. And new Hero action cameras to fit that drone, too. It'll be barely a month before you can get your hands on GoPro's brand new Karma drone, and two new Hero5 action cameras will be out even sooner.

Hi Gizmodo, I was wondering if you could help me. I have a question. I have been the proud owner of a very nice Canon 7D camera for the last few years, and have some nice lenses to boot — a 24-70mm Canon L lens, a 30mm Sigma prime, and a 50mm f/1.8 Canon prime.

But I'd like to upgrade. I'm eyeing off the Sony Alpha mirrorless cameras, but I don't have the money to just go out and buy something off the shelf. So I was wondering: what if I trade my camera in? Or should I sell it as second-hand on a forum somewhere? Yours sincerely, Totally Not Alex Walker
