Despite the rise of mirrorless cameras, Canon has been relatively cautious updating its Rebel DSLR line. The last big upgrade was the T5i from two years ago, and even that was considered more of a refresh than a revamp. Well, the series is finally getting an overhaul -- and in some cases, it might...

It's always cool learning how stuff works. Case in point: cameras. More specifically, digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) pictograph boxes. The chaps over at YouTube channel The Slow Mo Guys have taken their trademark ultra-high-speed camerawork and, well, pointed it at a camera. The result? Seeing ...

If there's one thing (and there is) I miss about carrying around my Lumia 1020, it's that phone's dedicated, two-stage camera button. Designed to mimic "real" camera shutter releases, it's a feature I've missed dearly on my current daily driver, Apple's iPhone 6. Seattle-based Moment seems to thin...

Nobody just takes one photo of something anymore. With iPhones in our pockets it's easy to capture every angle, take burst photos so you can pick and choose, and then toss an obnoxious filter on it so it looks like something that was taken in the 1930s. Despite all that -- or perhaps because of it...

Scanners are really extra-large image sensors at heart, so it stands to reason that you could make a decent camera out of one. Right? Well, Dario Morelli just proved it... and then some. His homebrew medium format camera uses parts from an Epson V30-series scanner to take enormous 143-megapixel ph...

It wasn't long ago that Flickr lamented the "cost of lost good will" its Wall Art service caused, but the photo-minded outfit thinks it has a solution: removing Creative Commons-licensed photos from Wall Art's available photos. What's more, the outfit is refunding the sales of CC images made throu...

Mobile photo editing apps are hardly in short supply these days, but EyeEm has attempted to stand out from the crowd with its focus on sharing, community and discovery. Now, only days after Instagram released a bunch of new filters, EyeEm is doing the same with a major overhaul of its editing tool...

Anyone who knows me understands that I live with an all-consuming travel lust. There's nothing I like more than going out to see what else is in the world. It's a prohibitively expensive fascination, so I'm often forced to accept compromises. RoundMe for iPhone (free) is so lovely in its executi...

Instagram's photography thrives on filters, so it's only fair that you get as much control over those filters as possible, right? The developers clearly think so. An update rolling out today to Instagram's Android and iOS apps lets you reorganize and hide filters; if you're obsessed with Sutro's v...

I have sooooo many photos scattered on my computer. Not all are in iPhoto, or Lightroom, or Aperture, the latter on which development was discontinued by Apple. Snapselect for OS X from MacPhun Software is a very clever and tremendously useful app just released on the Mac App Store. On sale for...

For one seasoned photographer, Apple's iPhone is the tool of choice this year. As Time reports, photographer Brooks Kraft -- who has spent over a decade cov...

For most of us, high-speed image capture, say 120 or 240 frames per second, is enough to get a good look at stuff happening in the blink of an eye -- like a water droplet hitting the ground or a Bichon Frisé snagging his favorite ball. For faster subjects, industrial-strength high-speed cam...

I sell a lot of items on eBay, so I'm always taking product photos for my listings. The iPhone is my camera of choice as the eBay iPhone app makes it easy to upload photos to an auction's description. Though convenient, the iPhone doesn't take great photos or so I thought until I saw this shot from...
