Snapseed is a favorite photo editing app for mobile photographers everywhere. The main complaint is that since acquiring the company Google has been very slow to produce an update. Well, the wait is finally over. Snapseed 2.0 has been released and is loaded with all kinds of useful new features.
In the video below photographer and Mark Ryan Sallee walks us through the new update and it's features.
Photographer Nick Fancher takes us through how he shoots professional fashion portraits anywhere. Nick doesn't have a studio and usually doesn't use an assistant. If you don't either (and many of us don't) this video can show you how he works around challenges and what his process is. It's a 20 minute video but well worth the watch.
According to Nikon they have been seeing fraudulent cameras coming through their service center. The Nikon D800 is being made to look like the D800E by replacing the cover. The smaller sensor D7100 is being made to look like the full frame D610 and the D4 made to look like the more expensive D4S.
These are mostly being sold on the internet and unfortunately Nikon cannot service them. If you're concerned about the authenticity of your camera, you can check by following these directions;
"When the “overview” display option is enabled in full-frame playback mode, the name of the camera used to capture the image is displayed in the top right corner of the monitor, allowing users to confirm the true name of their camera. If "NIKON D800E" is displayed, your camera is an authentic D800E. If any other name is displayed, your camera is a fraudulent D800E."

If you've been dreaming of owning one of Canon's famous "L Series" lenses but have been afraid to make the jump due to cost -- now might be the time. Canon has permanently dropped the price over 30 of their lenses. You can check out all the deals HERE on B&H.
In this humorous video a drone camera doesn't stand a chance against a curious chimpanzee. Flying over a zoo exhibit located in the Netherlands, the chimp uses an extended branch to knock the camera from the sky. There's also some cute footage of him exploring the strange object after his successful sabotage.
