Whether your taking a fun group photo, capturing a long exposure of the stars, or taking your time and setting up a timelapse, Spark gives you instant control, with your phone and without it for up to 2,000 hours of continuous use on the same replaceable coin cell battery.


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.

Press Release: Nikon Announces D7500 DSLR



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.

Review: Alpine Labs Pulse Wireless Camera Remote Control



Overview : Pulse gives you powerful control over your camera - wirelessly from your smartphone. It plugs straight into your DSLR or Mirrorless camera's USB port, so whether you're shooting photos, time lapse, or video, you get complete creative freedom in real time.

Features :
  • Remotely Adjust Camera Settings: Change your camera’s ISO, aperture, and shutter speed — wirelessly from your Apple or Android device.
  • Remote Trigger Up To 100 ft.: Take epic selfies. Pulse’s 100‘ Bluetooth range allows you to set up your camera and trigger it from anywhere.
  • Control Up To 3 Cameras: Control up to three Pulse-equipped cameras at once - all from the same smartphone. Be everywhere at once and get all the right angles, even if you are just a crew of one.

    Oberwerth Launches Donau Line of Leather Lens Pouches



    I never heard of Oberwerth but they are a German manufacturer, best known for its high-end leather camera accessories and bags. They just launched their new Donau line of leather lens pouches. The pouches are handmade in Germany from soft cowhide leather. A surface finish provides stain protection and should preserve the natural material's shine for a long time to come. In the interior, the pouches are lined with non-pilling wool felt to keep your valuable glass scratch-free.


    The Donau pouches come in four sizes: S, M, L and XL. The different sizes accommodate lenses of various dimensions but at a width of 9.5 cm/3.74 in and a diameter of 9 cm/3.54. The XL version seems more suitable for a large prime rather than telephoto zoom lenses. The pouches are available now, starting at $150/€139 for the small size. The XL variant will set you back $214/€199. More information is available on the Oberwerth website.

    Popular Photography Closes After 80 Years



    It's a sad day in the photography world—after 80 years, Popular Photography Magazine will be closing its covers and no longer be publishing any content. The first issue hit newsstands in 1937. It was a monthly publication for all these years, but they switched to bi-monthly edition about six months ago.

    The upcoming March/April issue will be the last, and as of Friday, March 10th, no new content will be published on their website, PopPhoto.com. Their sister publication, American Photo Magazine, has been web-only for the past couple of years and it will also stop updating its website as of this coming Friday.

    Both magazines have been issued by Bonnier. Bonnier’s CEO, Eric Zinczenko, made the announcement earlier today via a company-wide email.

    It's sad to see printed publication close because of digital. Having worked in print publication industry, it's very hard to keep up with digital age since reviews, tutorials, content and everything else can be posted with a click of a button. I personally liked receiving magazines in the mail and flipping through the pages...call me old school if you will. It's more surprising that they opted to close the site down as well.

    Pricing and availability for all three lenses will be announced at a date to be determined.
