Photo of the week: The Purple Hour

This image was shot in Myvatn, northern Iceland. Id been shooting there for several years now, but this was the most magical I had ever seen it. The entire area was covered with fluffy frost and snow, created by a combination of fresh snow, high humidity and low temperatures. dpreview.com

Photo of the week: Point of Transition

At the end of the Tsauchab Dune Valley in Namibia is the famous Deadvlei, which was cut off from Sossusvleiand any water sourceby a low dune an estimated 700-800 years ago. The lack of water, the arid climate and the hard wood of the Namibian Camel Thorn tree have kept the trees of Deadvlei from decomposing. dpreview.com

Canon EOS 6D Mark II sample reel

The Canon EOS 6D Mark II offers decent video quality at up to Full HD (1080/60p) resolution. It doesn't offer any form of 4K capture like its higher-end siblings, but with full Dual Pixel Autofocus and effective digital image stabilization that works in tandem with in-lens stabilization, the footage is generally smooth and in focus. dpreview.com

Sony's Mavica FD71 liked floppy disks, hated magnets

In the earliest days of consumer digital photography, back when the smart in smart phone was the same as the smart in a smart pair of pants, almost every aspect of capturing, transferring, storing, sharing and printing digital images was so fraught with technical challenges and costly disappointments that it still amazes me that it ever took off at all. dpreview.com
