On point: Steve Vaccariello's dance photography

Sun, 2015-02-15 22:46

'I do not touch my dance work with Photoshop. Never!' says portrait photographer Steve Vaccariello - a bold statement in the digital age. But he's no luddite. His extended portfolio of commercial, celebrity and beauty work has certainly seen its share of image enhancement. When working with dancers, Vaccariello likes to use reductionist lighting designed to stay out of the way of the movements of the performers. See his work and find out more about him. See gallery

CP+ 2015: Tokina reveals new 24-70mm F2.8 and 11-20mm F2.8 zooms

Sun, 2015-02-15 02:44

Tokina might not have the same presence at CP+ as Sigma and Tamron but its small booth is pretty busy, thanks to a brand new 24-70mm F2.8 for Nikon full-frame, and an 11-20mm F2.8 wideangle for APS-C. Just from first impressions, they seem impressively well-built, as we'd expect from Tokina. Click through for some images

By far the biggest lines at this year's CP+ show in Yokohama are at the Canon booth, and they're made up almost entirely of people eager to see just two cameras - the new EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R.

The Droid you're looking for? Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 review posted

Fri, 2015-02-13 18:30

The Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 is the second iteration of that manufacturer's ultra-connected camera running full Android OS. It's a 16MP camera with a 23-483mm equivalent lens that also happens to run Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, though it lacks the 3G/4G connectivity of its predecessor and offers only Wi-Fi. Is this hybrid the best of both worlds, or does it come up short in the imaging department? Read review

Fri, 2015-02-13 09:33

UPDATED: We're at the CP+ show in Yokohama Japan, where Sigma is showing its brand new 24mm f1.4 full-frame prime lens. The latest in the company's 'Art' series of fast primes, we have high hopes for the new lens based on our extremely positive impressions of the 35mm and 50mm lenses which have come before it.

We're there, and we wasted no time getting our hands on the new lenses - now complete with glass inside them, which is welcome change from the last time we saw them. Click through to see for yourselves

We're at CP+ in Yokohama, Japan, where Canon is showing off a prototype ultra high-resolution 120MP CMOS sensor.

CP+ 2015: Hands-on with new Pentax K-S2

Thu, 2015-02-12 14:12

The Pentax K-S2 doesn't replace the K-S1, but sits above it in Ricoh's Pentax lineup. And quite right too - it's a considerably more serious camera, even if we do miss the shiny disco lights on the handgrip. We're at the CP+ show in Yokohama Japan, where Ricoh is showing off its new 20MP APS-C DLSR, in all manner of color combinations. Click through for some hands-on images
