What is Spark?
Spark is the most versatile camera remote on the market. With three different modes of control, Spark was built to adapt to whatever situation you are shooting in. Whether you're taking a fun group photo, capturing a long exposure of the stars, or settling down and setting up a time lapse, Spark gives you instant control. With your phone or without it.
Spark combines the speed of infrared triggering, with the reliability of a traditional wired trigger, and the power and feature set of smartphone app control. Spark connects to your cameras through the external trigger port and is compatible with hundreds of DSLR's, mirrorless cameras, and even some point and shoots.
Compatible brands include Canon, Nikon, Sony, Olympus, Panasonic, Fujifilm, Pentax, Contax, Samsung, Hasselblad, Sigma, Kodak, and Konica Minolta. For current compatibility please visit: http://bit.ly/2otz9zQ
The free Spark Camera Control app instantly connects to Spark over Bluetooth Low Energy, and gives you access to all of Spark's advanced features. Set up a Bulb ramping timelapse, take a minute long exposure of the stars, or just set up a quick photobooth sequence of you and your friends - all from your phone. The App will be free and available for both iOS and Android as soon as Spark is ready to ship.
Early bird pricing is $39 for the first 24 hours. After the 24 hours, Spark will be $44 for the remainder of the campaign. The retail price of the Spark Camera Remote is $59.
We'll have a full review of the unit when we get our hands on it.

Nikon has announced its midrange Nikon D7500. This is the company’s new mid-range offering for enthusiasts and semi-pros. The design was slightly tweaked but the features are inherited from the Nikon D500. It uses the same 20.9MP APS-C sensor, Expeed 5 processor and 180k-pixel RGB metering sensor and is capable of capturing 4K video.
The D7500 looks like the D7200 but is slightly lighter and the grip has been deepened. The weather-sealing has also been improved. It still has the same 3.2" LCD display but is now tilting and touch-enabled.
One thing that removed was one of the SD slots. In the D7200 had two, the D7500 has one and it does not support UHS-II media. The included battery is more powerful (EN-EL15a) but the battery life is about 15% lower than the D7200, at 950 shots per charge.
Burst shooting has been improved as well. The FPS has increased from 6fps to 8fps. The D7500 is also able to capture 50 14-bit uncompressed RAWs in a single burst, rather than 18.
For 4K video, the D7500 can capture UHD 4K video at a bit rate of 144Mbps with a 1.5x crop. If you drop it down to 1080p, you gain 3-axis digital IS and Active D-Lighting. You can also do 4K output over HDMI, a flat picture profile, zebra pattern and Auto ISO. It also has microphone and headphone jacks.
The Nikon D7500 will be available in Summer 2017 for a suggested retail price of $1,249.95 for the body only configuration, or with a AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens for $1,749.95.
