Pancake Lens Buying Guide

Pancake lenses, those small, fixed focal length lenses that barely protrude from your camera’s lens mount, are becoming increasingly common. Based on a simple Zeiss Tessar lens design that dates back more than a hundred years, pancake lenses are popular again due to their size—they extend an inch or less from the camera body—and weight, which is usually about 3 ounces.

Just Announced: New Sony Lens-Style Digital Cameras

New lens-style cameras work with your smartphone for smart image capture and easy selfies.

Unveiled: Nikon 1 V3 Mirrorless Digital Camera and Two NIKKOR Zooms

One of the many attractions of mirrorless system cameras is that despite their compact form factor, they don’t sacrifice image quality. Nikon plainly embraced this philosophy with the original V and J series cameras, delivering small but feature-packed offerings.

Anamorphic Lenses: The Key to Widescreen Cinematic Imagery

What began as a tool and technique for capturing and projecting wider aspect ratios on 35mm film, anamorphic lenses are a runaway favorite among cinematographers for the unique characteristics they bring to moving images. Ultra-wide rectangular aspect ratios, long horizontal lens flares, and oval bokeh (the out-of-focus areas of the image) now feel as much a part of the cinematic experience as a bucket of popcorn and a liter of soda.

Hands-On Review: Tamron 150-600mm f/5-6.3 SP Di VC USD for Canon

Tamron’s brand-new 150-600mm f/5-6.3 SP Di VC USD has generated a lot of attention with its release. This is mainly because it offers Canon, Nikon, and Sony shooters access to the super-telephoto zoom. This lens replaces Tamron’s 200-500mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD and provides photographers with just a little more reach.

 

Unveiled: New Sony Mirrorless Camera, Full-Frame E-mount Zoom Lens, and Cyber-shots!

It seems that it’s the time of the season for multi-camera announcements from big camera manufacturers, and Sony is leading the way, offering a new advanced mirrorless APS-C camera and a new 70-200mm f/4 full-frame E-mount lens. They have also announced five new digital cameras set to succeed already popular compacts.

 

Unveiled: Two New Sigma Lenses in the Global Vision Line

Emphasizing the continuing development of high-quality optics as part of their Global Vision lineup, Sigma has announced two new lenses: a redesigned zoom lens, the 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DC Macro (OS) HSM lens and a standard prime 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM lens.
