Do you need a great portrait rig for an important event, but don't want to spend the big bucks? We have you covered in our Best Portrait and Lens combinations under $1000! Let's face it: Smartphones are great as your quick and easy "go-to" camera, but they just can't get the job done for serious portraits.

Neewer, a photo gear brand out of China, has launched a new budget APS-C lens for Fuji X and Sony E mounts. The Neewer 35mm F1.2 mirrorless lens features a copper core and aluminum body, 6 elements in 5 groups, F1.2 to F16 aperture, 9 diaphragm blades, manual focus, and 150g / 5oz weight.A multi-layer coating applied to the lens reduces ghosting and flares while increasing light transmission, acc
Nikon has announced the development of an AF-S Nikkor 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR, an ultra-portable super-telephoto full-frame FX lens. “The AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR will deliver exceptional agility and optical performance in an incredibly compact and lightweight package,” Nikon says.The portability comes thanks to Nikon’s Phase Fresnel (PF) technology, which was first launc
Photographer Mathieu Stern loves experimenting with very old and/or strange camera lenses, but his latest project is quite strange, even by his standards. He used a 3D printer and created a lens that looks like a giant eyeball.“If the model of the camera lens is the human eyeball, why not reverse the process and create a camera lens in the shape of a human eyeball?” Stern asks.To focu
Following up on their 300mm f/4 PF ED VR AF-S telephoto lens, Nikon has announced the development of their second lens featuring Phase Fresnel (PF) technology. The new AF-S Nikkor 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR lens will be designed to offer "exceptional agility and optical performance in an incredibly compact and lightweight package." While exact dimensions are not yet known, we do know that the lens w
Nikon has announced the development of the FX-format AF-S NIKKOR 500mm F5.6E PF ED VR lens. It uses the same type of phase fresnel element as the company's AF-S 300mm F4E PF ED VR, which is 30% shorter and more than 50% lighter than its predecessor. By design, a Phase Fresnel element reduces chromatic aberration introduced by traditional refractive elements, while also reducing the overall length
Just a week after we came across leaked images of the lens, Samyang has unveiled its latest Sony autofocus lens, the AF 24mm F2.8 FE.Samyang calls the lens ‘tiny but wide’—and rightly so. This lens weighs just 93g and measures 37mm from front to back without the hood or rear lens cap. The FE mount means it works with full-frame Sony cameras, including but not limited to the A9 and A7 IIII.$(docum
If you've been toying with the idea of trying 360-degree imaging but are reluctant to spend large amounts of money on specialist equipment, the newly announced $50 PanoClip might be worth a good look.The PanoClip snaps onto a smartphone and lets you capture 360-degree photos by combining images from the device's front and rear cameras. The latter are aligned with the PanoClip's built-in super-wid
Between the 1940s and 1970s, a number of camera manufacturers designed lenses employing thoriated glass in one or more elements. Incorporating as much as 40% thorium dioxide (ThO2) in the glass mixture increases the index of refraction of the glass while maintaining low dispersion. Thoriated glass elements allowed lenses to deliver low levels of aberration and distortion with relatively simple an
Click here to read our Fuji 50mm f/2 Lens Review The compact Fuji XF 50mm f/2 WR lens is a nifty little portrait prime for the X Series system. For one thing, it fills a noticeable gap in Fuji's lens lineup: the affordable 50mm (75mm eq.) prime lens. They have zooms that hit this focal length, of course, as well as the pricey yet beautiful 56mm f/1.2, but until now nothing fo
