Using a ring light or ring flash helps to produce nice, even light across your subject's face. It is an ideal tool for portraiture or close-up work because there are no shadows cast from the light.

However, a traditional ring light or ring flash can be an expensive tool. Here is how you can create a similar effect with tools you hopefully already own.

At first blush, GoPro’s new Hero 5 Black looks a lot different from the Hero 4 cameras. It’s rubbery and it’s chubbier, mostly because it’s now water resistant out of the box — no more bulky housing necessary, unless you really want to dive deep or give it some extra protection.

Olympus made a bunch of announcements on Tuesday at the Photokina show in Germany. The company added a new camera to its Pen lineup with the Olympus Pen E-PL8. The compact interchangeable-lens camera is a good looking Micro Four Thirds camera with a small and slim design and metal and leather-grained finish. Olympus also announced the development of the EM-1 Mark II to bring alive the DSLR vs Mirrorless camera debate all over again. The company claims the SLR-style mirrorless OM-D E-M1 MK II camera is one of the fastest for sports and professional photography.

Hasselblad’s X1D is one of the most interesting cameras to be announced in years, as it crams a massive, medium format image sensor into camera that’s as portable as a compact DSLR. Today, the company is making things even more interesting with a special edition 4116 version of the camera.

OUR EARLY VERDICT

With the arrival of Dual Pixel CMOS AF, a built-in EVF and touchscreen interface, the EOS M5 looks like Canon might have finally come good with a mirrorless camera.

Apple just announced the iPhone 7 camera and iPhone 7 Plus dual camera.

Both smartphones come with upgraded cameras with the widest apertures we've ever seen on an iPhone, as well as machine-learning-assisted shooting.

Apple has also made them a bit more appealing to hardcore photographers, with the ability to shoot raw DNG images like you can get from a DSLR (or some Androids). Raw files offer users finer control when they're editing, but are a bit technical for casual shooters and can't be uploaded straight to Instagram.

Other than in the video game Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell, thermal vision is not something I have any experience with. So when I picked up FLIR’s newest entry-level thermal imager, the Scout TK, I was a little unsure how best to go about testing it. After all, I don’t spend my time in real life sneaking around at night, trying to steal sensitive documents from behind the backs of watchful mercenaries. As it turns out, though, there is a surprisingly long list of things thermal vision is good for, even if not all of them are quite as exciting as being an international super spy.
