Discovering Wildlife Photography Competition Winners Announced

The Society of International Nature and Wildlife Photographers have announced the winners of Discovering Wildlife Photography Competition. Marc Mol from Laufen, Switzerland was chosen as the winner from over 325 images entered in to the competition. Marc tells us ''What a nice and welcome surprise! A herd of elephants cast incredible shadows across the dry Luangwa River floodplain as they journey to the refreshing waters of this dwindling river. The looming shadows of the herd led by the matriarch are clearer than the animals themselves, who seamlessly blend in the textured patterns of the sand below them. Captured from a microlight at early light over the Luangwa River floodplain in Zambia's South Luangwa National park." Marc used a Nikon D3S camera and an AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II lens to capture the winning shot. The runners up are Mario Gustavo Fiorucci and Karin Horstman.

Hasselblad Masters 2016 Open for Public Vote

Shortlisted entries to the Hasselblad Masters 2016 competition are now awaiting votes from the Hasselblad Public Jury. The public vote provides photographers worldwide with the opportunity to influence the result of the competition, with the Public Jury carrying one vote on the main Masters Jury panel. Members of the public are invited to help select a winner from each of the ten categories. The Public Jury vote works by using a rating system that allows you to award 1, 2 or 3 stars to an image in each category. The images with the most stars in each category at the end of the voting period will then gain the public vote as part of the main Masters Jury panel. It is not possible to vote more than once on an image, and once the 6 allotted stars are used up, that image category is considered closed and you can move on to the next category. It is not mandatory to vote in all 10 categories. The voting period ends on 30 September 2015.

Eastman House’s Technology Collection Named Engineering Landmark

George Eastman House's Technology Collection has been recognised as an Historic Mechanical Engineering Landmark by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) for its historic significance as the world's leading collection of photographic and cinematographic technology. The vast collection includes a daguerreotype camera signed by Daguerre, an original 1888 Kodak, Ansel Adams's first cameras, a Technicolor camera that filmed MGM classics, the NASA Lunar Orbiter, the Speed Graphic camera that captured the flag-raising at Iwo Jima, and many other technical marvels. "The collection at George Eastman House promotes the legacy of a great inventor while telling the story of an industry that has brought fun, leisure, and entertainment to many," said Madiha El-Mehelmy Kotb, past president of ASME. "This landmark designation pays tribute to the mechanical engineering ingenuity that has been incorporated in these devices." ASME has designated landmarks, sites, and collections of historic importance to mechanical engineering since 1971 through its History and Heritage Landmarks Programme. Landmark status indicates that the artifact, site, or collection represents a significant step forward in the evolution of mechanical engineering and is the best known example of its kind.

Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 600mm f/4E FL ED VR

The AF-S NIKKOR 600mm f/4E FL ED VR is a new full-frame super telephoto lens for Nikon SLRs. With a weight of "merely" 8.3lb / 3810g (vs. the 11.5lb / 5060g of its predecessor), the lens features two fluorite lens elements and four ED elements, as well as an electromagnetic diaphragm, which helps with maintaining consistent exposure during high-speed burst shooting of fast action. The addition of fluorite lens elements to the optical formula helps reduce chromatic aberration, and plays a key role in the overall weight reduction. Additionally, the new design promises "significantly improved" AF tracking performance. The lens features the latest incarnation of Nikon’s Vibration Reduction technology, with automatic tripod detection to counteract vibrations when mounted on a tripod. For pros shooting fast and erratic moving sports or subjects, using the SPORT VR mode will yield a more stable viewfinder image whether handholding the lens. The AF-S NIKKOR 600mm f/4E FL ED VR will be available in mid-July for the SRP $12,299.95 / £9,649.99 / €12,999.00.

Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/4E FL ED VR

The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/4E FL ED VR is a new super telephoto lens for Nikon SLR cameras with an FX sized sensor. The 'E' designation in the product name denotes an electromagnetic diaphragm which helps maintain consistent exposure during high-speed burst shooting of fast action. The lens weighs in at 6.8lb / 3090g, which may sound heavy - but is actually significantly lighter than the 8.5lb / 3880g of its predecessor. The optical formula of this lens combines two fluorite elements and three Extra Low Dispersion (ED) glass elements to further reduce chromatic aberration while providing superior sharpness and color accuracy. Additionally, the new design is claimed to "significantly improve" AF tracking performance. For enhanced durability, the lens is gasketed against the elements and has a fluorine coating on a front protective meniscus element to make it easier to remove dirt, moisture and smudges. The supplied tripod collar boasts completely new bearings for smoother switching between horizontal and vertical orientation. To make the lens easier to carry, the tripod mount has been repositioned closer to the rear, a change that also enables the included one-piece hood to be easily reversed. The new AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/4E FL ED VR will be available in mid-July for a suggested retail price of $10,299.95 / £8,149.99 / €10,999.00.
