Swedish photographer Tomas Jönsson has taken and shared two photos with what he claims is an unreleased Nikon D7** full-frame DSLR. They’re low-light photos so utterly unbelievable that, if they are indeed legitimate, they mean Nikon has an incredible ace up its sleeve.

Over on Instagram, there’s a guy who goes by “Kirby Jenner” who has attracted over 440,000 followers with cleverly Photoshopped photos. For each photo, the guy humorously inserts himself into a photo of celebrity Kendall Jenner.

Canon’s next entry-level full-frame camera might not have a mirror box. A new report is claiming that Canon’s first full-frame mirrorless camera will spell the end of the 6D series so as not to cannibalize the company’s entry-level full-frame user base.

Following up on their incredibly popular experiment attaching a GoPro to the end of an arrow and stabilizing the spinning footage, the guys over at Corridor Digital decided to step it up for their next try. This time, Sam and Niko launched the GoPro out of a high powered air cannon.

For the past few years, I have been really enjoying pushing the iPhone camera as far as it can go, to do photography projects that many people might not have realized you can do with an iPhone.

We’ve seen some interesting DIY flash diffusers, but I can’t remember ever seeing someone use a blown up balloon. Which is a shame, really, because it’s a cheap and effective way to soften your pop-up flash, or even a small speedlight.

It’s become something of a YouTube tradition for photographers. Every December for the past 3 years, The Camera Store TV hosts get together to reveal their picks for best and worst camera gear of the year… while getting drunk.

Photographers are a narcissistic breed. Not me, of course, but my colleagues are. We’ve got profiles on dozens of websites and we must tell the world what we are doing at our jobs every day and in real-time — we just have to. It’s compulsory.

AP photographer Burhan Ozbilici is a photojournalist incredibly dedicated to his job; so dedicated, in fact, that he kept on taking pictures when a gunman shot and killed Russian ambassador Andrei Karlov at a photo gallery in Ankara, Turkey.

Brooklyn-based fine art photographer Johnny Tang has spent the past five years working on an impressive series of clone photographs. Some of the images are created with over 100 photos… shot entirely on 35mm film.

The above photo is taken at 28mm at f/11 on an ancient Minolta 28-85mm lens, the focus was set to about 2.5 meters and according to the depth of field scales everything should be in focus… but it isn’t.

We’ve seen our fair share of strange, voyeuristic, and sometimes ethically questionable photo and video projects, but this one tops the list. After having his phone stolen, film student Anthony van der Meer hatched a plan: he had another phone stolen on purpose, and then followed the thief around for weeks using a hidden app.

Say hello to Kamerar ZOOM, the world’s first dual lens attachment system for the iPhone 7 Plus.

For their Christmas card this year, the photography training service RGG EDU wrote a parody of the famous children’s book, “Goodnight Moon.” The 3-minute video above is a reading of “Goodnight Pros,” and pokes fun at Apple’s new MacBook Pro.
