Since we’ve moved into covering more photography news here at TechHog, it seemed like a good idea to bring to our readers attention a product that has caused quite a buzz on Kickstarter lately. It’s called Lumu and it’s a dongle that plugs into the 35mm headphone jack of your iPhone or Android device (supported model) and when used in conjunction with the custom made app, it turns your smartphone in to a real, professional grade light meter. The team behind Lumu have worked extremely hard to make the product perfect,...

Late last night, Canon took the wraps off their newest D-SLR cameras, the EOS 70D. This new camera—the apparent upgrade to the older EOS 60D—is more than just a slight upgrade, it’s potentially industry changing.  The CMOS sensor that Canon used in the 70D features what they’re calling Dual Pixel AF Technology. This new technology uses two separate photodiodes in each pixel to essentially provide a more intelligent auto-focusing experience. On top of that, the 70D also uses the same DIGIC 5+ image processor found in the...

This is basically the same thing that Nikon has done with it’s high end DSLR, the D800 and the D800E (the latter of which doesn’t feature the OLPF). Sony’s offering does differ slightly from Nikon’s,...

A few months ago the Sigma Corporation—maker of some very fine optical lenses for DSLR cameras—announced a world’s first, a 18-35mm lens with a f/1.8 fixed aperture. Basically what that means, for the uninformed, is that the lens is capable of shooting at f/1.8 at 18mm all the way through to 35mm. In typical telephoto lenses, when the distance is increased, so is the minimum aperture. Normally, you’d find a fixed aperture on something called a “prime” lens or fixed lens, which don’t have any telephoto...
