Imaging recource: Two Minute Tips: Avoid sluggish raw editing software with this simple tip

With how affordable memory cards are these days, it’s easy to capture a ton of raw images in a very short amount of time. When it’s time to process them, how can you easily and quickly convert a large batch of raw photos? In the latest episode of Two Minute Tips, photographer David Bergman shows us. If you are shooting with a camera with a lot of megapixels, as many photographers do these days, you can end up with a huge amount of data on your computer.

Imaging recource: The Photographer’s Roundtable: 5 landscape photography pros discuss the state of photography

We can learn a lot about photography by listening to other photographers and who better to listen to than experienced professional photographers? With their extensive time in the industry, pros have learned what works best, what might not work as well, ways to create a successful business and perhaps most importantly, what drives them as artists. It is one thing to listen to a single photographer give a presentation, but it is another thing entirely to listen to a group of photographers from the same genre of photography have an...

Chances are these Sony sensors are in your new camera

Techradar:

With the exception of Canon, Sony pretty much has a monopoly on the production of camera sensors (in fact, imaging sensors in general), manufacturing sensors not only for its own range of cameras, but also for rival brands. We were lucky enough to visit Sony's huge Kumanoto sensor factory, where four million sensors a day are manufactured, last year. 

Now Sony has updated its database of the sensors its manufactures. Spotted by SonyAlphaRumors.com, it includes all the new sensors rival companies can buy from Sony Semiconductor Manufacturing Corporation (which is a separate division to Sony's camera arm). 

Sony's new IMX571 sensor is an APS-C sized sensor with a back-illuminated design (BSI) and a resolution of 26MP, which would suggest it's found a home in Fujifilm's X-T3, while we reckon the IMX410 full-frame sensor, a 24MP BSI design, is being used in Nikon's new Z6 mirrorless camera and possibly Panasonic's upcoming Lumix S1 full-frame mirrorless camera. 

There are also two new medium-format sensors, with the 150MP MX411 BSI used by Phase One IQ4 and the 100MP IMX461 BSI used by Fujifilm's recently announced GFX100S

Three other sensors are listed, the 24MP IMX271 APS-C sensor (possibly in the new Nikon D3500?) and two Micro Four Thirds sensors, the 20MP IMX272 and 11MP IMX299; it's hard to say where those latter two will end up, but we could speculate that the IMX272 may be used in a new Olympus mirrorless camera, possibly the long-awaited update to the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II
