Given the advances in sensor technology over the past few years, is Full Frame really necessary? Up until recently I might have said "Maybe not...". The latest generation of smaller sensor cameras have gotten so good, and the appeal of smaller and lighter bodies and lenses is so great, that in many parts of the world DSLR sales are being trumped by Compact System Cameras.

But now with Sony's new A7 and A7r Full Frame cameras, which are actually smaller than some MFT models, which way are things going to go? Find out more.

It has been a cold week in the US.  Here in Indianapolis it got down to 5 degree (F) a day ago.  For you Celsius people that is -15.  We have published a lot of Antarctica images and ice and it is all too much a reminder of winter.  So, today we switch gears and give you a glimpse of warmer times to come.  Frank Sauer shares his article on Garden Variety.  This is an essay on photographing in your own backyard.  However it is a lot more.  It reminds us that we can find a lot of things to photograph near our homes without having to travel great distances.  Take your camera off the shelf and get out and find something close by that you have seen many times and try to see it differently.  Take some images and if you are bold enough share them on the forum.  

There was great response to Adam Woodworth’s recent article on Landscape Astrophotography.  Adam has made a 30 minute video illustrating how he works the image to come up with the final image.  It’s a great Photoshop tutorial on blending and layers.  Check it out HERE.

My good friend and fellow workshop leader Josh Holko from Australia recently completed a beautiful video about the Arctic.  There is some excellent photography in the video and it is well done.  Enjoy Arctic Expedition

Speaking of Arctic Expeditions, stay tuned this week as LuLa launches 2 back to back Arctic trips this July.  These will be most unique so look for our announcement very soon.

The new Sony A7r has, arguably, the finest 35mm format sensor ever made. Leica's M lenses are, again arguably, the best 35mm format lenses ever made.

What happens with they mate? Indeed – what could go wrong?

Some camera makers are content to put new chrome and tail fins on last year's model. Not Sony. They believe in pushing the envelope, and with the just shipping RX-10 they have created a new camera that blends characteristics of several previous categories and models, yet which manages to forge new territory. But how successful have they really been with the RX10 and can it justify its price?
