It's been a busy week here in the office as we're working hard on some post-Photokina reviews and preparing for PPE next week. We also got a serious dose of Pacific Northwest fall weather, and the rainy afternoons and evenings left us plenty of time to go poking around the corners of the internet for important (read: probably not really important) things that happened in the world of photography. Read more

The Natural History Museum has announced winners of its 2014 Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition. This year's winning photos document all manner of creatures, from a pride of lions in the Serengeti, to a yellow scorpion in the northeast of Spain. The competition recognizes both adult and youth winners and awards the top photo with £10,000 and a trophy. See gallery

The Canon EOS 7D II is the long-awaited follow up to the 7D, offering a 20.2MP APS-C sensor, dual-pixel AF with a 65-point phase detect system and continuous shooting at 10 fps. It's also equipped with 1080/60p HD video capture and a number of compression options, as well as microphone and headphone ports. We put the 7D II (and its predecessor, the 7D) through its paces in our studio and have updated our first impressions review with the results. Read more

It's not uncommon for a company to patent technologies that might be incorporated into products at some point, though the company might not have any plans to use it in the immediate future. Such a business move appears to be the case with a recent Canon patent, which details the use of variable lens elements in combination with traditional glass elements. Read more

German startup Panono has announced availability and pricing for its ball-shaped Panono Camera. The device shoots spherical panorama images and will cost $549/€549 when it ships worldwide in the spring of 2015. The first to receive the camera will be the backers of the crowd-funding project the company used to get started before the camera goes on general release. Learn more

Canon has announced the upcoming release of its second-generation EOS C100 Mark II digital video camera. The device houses a Super 35mm 8.3 megapixel CMOS sensor, and is positioned as an affordable solution for film and video production, providing a variety of new design and performance upgrades. Read more

Ricoh Imaging is set to introduce three new colors for the company’s Pentax K-S1 DSLR camera in what it calls the 'Sweets Collection'. Already available in 12 different main body colors, the 20-million-pixel APS-C camera will now also come with a white body featuring cyan, yellow or magenta colored panels. The company has named these Strawberry Cake, Blue Cream Soda and Lime Pie, and each features the trademark colored light strip on the handgrip of the original K-S1 that was launched back in August.

With the increasing affordability of digital full frame cameras, there's been speculation about the future of APS-C as an enthusiast format. But with the launch of the 7D Mark II, Canon has made it pretty clear it believes there's still a high-end market for crop-sensor formats. We spoke to Bettina Hansen, a photographer who regularly shoots Canon and has experience working with the original EOS 7D to see what she made of the new camera

From the outside, Canon's PowerShot G7 X enthusiast compact looks like the S-series models that came before it, but inside it's an entirely different story. The G7 X offers a 20MP 1"-type BSI CMOS sensor, a 24-100mm equiv. F1.8-2.8 lens and built-in Wi-Fi with NFC. We've made a substantial update to our First Impressions Review of the G7 X including a writeup of our shooting experience and performance tests. Read more

The iPhone 6 Plus, introduced alongside the iPhone 6, offers one distinct feature that its sibling doesn't - optical image stabilization. In all other respects, their 8MP cameras, F2.2 aperture lenses and updated AF systems are the same. On paper the 6 Plus doesn't represent a great leap forward in terms of camera tech, but how does it perform in the real world? Read more

Back in January 2013, Lomography announced that it would be releasing a color negative film called Lomochrome Purple, which was based on Kodak's Aerochrome. With that film, photographers could capture images with shifted colors skewed towards the presence of purple. Today the company has made a follow-up announcement, introducing the Lomochrome Turquoise XR 100-400. Read more

Sony has introduced a new CMOS sensor, calling it the highest sensitivity sensor of its kind. Developed for automotive use, the new chip can capture color images in light conditions down to 0.005 lux. The sensor is 1/3-inch type with 1.27 effective megapixels, and supports a Wide Dynamic Range system that uses extended exposure times rather than using multiple exposures. Read more

With all the talk about new equipment at this time of year it's worth remembering why we buy that gear - to make great photos. What better way to do it than to showcase the excellent work of our own community? This week we asked users of our Documentary And Street photography forum to submit their favorite shots for inclusion in our Readers' Showcase. Click through to take a look at our favorites

Nature photographer Erez Marom captures a wide range of subjects, from macro shots of insects to some of the world's most dramatic landscapes. In this article, he shares images from a very unusual location - the ghost town of Kolmanskop, in Namibia. Abandoned over fifty years ago, Kolmanskop was a diamond-mining town, and is currently being reclaimed by the desert. Click through to take a look at Erez Marom's images and learn about his process

Sony's NEX and Alpha range of E and FE-mount cameras have a lot going for them, but some users have reported a 'wiggle' in the lensmount, especially when heavier lenses, or third-party optics via adapters are used. Fotodiox thinks it has the answer with its new 'Tough E-Mount' - literally a replacement lensmount for E and FE-mount cameras. With a single metal ring replacing the two (one metal, one plastic) originally attached to the camera, the Tough E-Mount should (according to the manufacturer) eliminate any movement between camera and lens. Click through for more details

British filter manufacturer Lee Filters has announced a new polarising filter that features a built-in warm-up effect that it says is aimed at landscape photographers. The 105mm Landscape Polariser has been designed with a shallow mount and with a 105mm diameter so that it will be useful for wide angle views, with the company suggesting it will be compatible with focal lengths as wide as 16mm on full frame SLRs. Read more

Delkin has introduced a new trio of rugged SD cards suitable for photographers who shoot in harsh environments, reducing the odds of losing photographs because of card damage. Delkin's new 'Black' SD cards are designed to handle extreme temperatures, as well as exposure to dust, water, and crushing forces. Read more

Earlier this year, storage manufacturer LaCie launched an upgraded version of its Rugged hard drive that features improved damage resistance and a built-in Thunderbolt cable. The new Rugged Thunderbolt drive is available with either a hard disk or an SSD, and also has a USB 3.0 port for universal connectivity. Is it a good storage option for photographers who need something that can handle the bumps in the road? Read more

Canon has taken the wraps off its new 50-1000mm CN20x 50 IAS H E1/P1 cinema lens, expanding its cine-servo offerings with what the maker says is the first-ever lens boasting a combined 20x magnification, integrated 1.5x extender, and a removable servo drive. The lens is targeted specifically at nature and sports television productions, as evidenced by its far from enthusiast-friendly $78K price-tag. Click through for more details

After unveiling its new iPhone models last month, Apple announced two new tablets today - the iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 3. The iPad Air 2 features a new Apple A8X chipset which Apple claims is 40% faster at the CPU level than the processor used in its predecessor. The iPad Air 2's cameras have been upgraded too, and both new tablets also gains the TouchID fingerprint sensor. Meanwhile Apple also announced a new version of its 27in iMac desktop computer with a 5120 x 2880 screen resolution. Click through to read more

Alongside the new Motorola-made Nexus 6 smartphone Google has also launched a new Nexus tablet, the 8.9-inch Nexus 9. The Nexus 9 is the first HTC-made Nexus device since the original Nexus One in 2010. Despite the different manufacturers the Nexus 9 specifications are equally high-end as those of its smartphone cousin. The new tablet comes with an 8.9-inch IPS LCD display that offers a 2,048 x 1,440 resolution and top-of-the-line interior components. Click through to read more

Following Apple's decision to cease development of Aperture, Adobe has released a plugin for Lightroom that enables erstwhile Aperture users to easily port their old libraries into Adobe's ecosystem once and for all. 'Aperture Importer' is a Lightroom add-on that allows users of Aperture and iPhoto to import their libraries into Lightroom complete with associated data ranging from flagging, GPS information and keywords to star ratings. Click through for a link

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 puts together a solid stills shooting feature set, including a 16MP Four Thirds sensor, 2.36m dot viewfinder, fully articulating 3-inch LCD and 12 fps continuous shooting. But its headline specs are in the video category - Cinema 4K recording and a host of tools for video shooters like focus peaking and zebra settings. We put its capabilities in stills and video to the test. Read review

Like any travel photographer, David Julian is happy to carry less gear whenever possible on his trips. With a photo expedition to Alaska on the horizon, he agreed to take the Canon G1 X Mark II for a spin and try it out from a travel photographer's perspective. No doubt it's easy to carry on a long journey, but is it versatile enough to be a traveler's primary camera? Read more

Google has launched the Nexus 6, its latest showcase phone that comes with a brand new version of Android, 5.0 'Lollipop', and an interesting-looking camera specification. The device comes with the same dual-LED ring flash as the Moto X and a 13MP imaging sensor. However, it adds a slightly faster F2.0 aperture and an optical image stabilization system into the mix. Read more
