Huawei is making a lot of noise and some big claims about the dual cameras in their new, Leica co-engineered Huawei P9 smartphone. But will the phone live up to the hype out in the real world, in real photographers’ hands? EyeEm teamed up with Huawei to find out.
Photographer, digital artist, and Photoshop master Erik Johansson just released the behind the scenes video for his latest creation, and you may be surprised when you find out just how much work (not retouching, on-location work) goes into setting up a dreamscape like this.
There is a big craze for Sony full frame (FF) mirrorless cameras at the moment, and seeing people rush onto that bandwagon is like watching lemmings following each other over the cliff.
Re-saving an image over and over and over again in a lossy format (a format like JPEG that tosses some data each time you save/compress the file) slowly but surely degrades the image. This is called generation loss, and it’s demonstrated beautifully in these almost painful-to-watch YouTube videos.
Image recognition is widely used to flag and remove offensive content from social media these days, but sometimes artificial intelligence isn’t very intelligent. One Instagram user just found that out after she had her account disabled for posting a photo of a cake.
Holy crowdfunding success Batman! Lomography has done it again, and by “done it” we mean launched an incredibly successful Kickstarter campaign. Their new Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art Lens just went up on Kickstarter this morning at 5am Eastern time, and by 2pm it had already broken $200K in funding!
Here’s an amazing short film titled “The Old New World” by photographer and animator Alexey Zakharov of Moscow, Russia. Zakharov found old photos of US cities from the early 1900s and brought them to life.

It came out first in 1940, when Europe was plunged into war but America was enjoying the dying days of calm before the storm. It was Kodak’s new black-and-white film, designed to be shot on location. The only problem was, it was only available in large format.
Gap is apologizing this week after a photo in its new Gap Kids ad campaign sparked controversy for a “racially insensitive” pose. The photo shows a white child model resting her arm on a black child’s head.
Magnum photographer David Hurn has had the type of career one dreams of. He photographed stars like the Beatles and Sean Connery, and worked during what he describes as one of the friendliest eras in professional photography. But can you guess what one piece of advice he always gives his students? “Wear good shoes.”
We’re getting closer to being able to take pictures with cameras built directly into contact lenses. Samsung has been granted a patent in South Korea for a smart contact lens that projects images directly into the wearer’s eyeball… and which has a built-in camera that’s controlled by blinking.
Leica announced back in February that it’s “reinventing” mobile photography by partnering with the Chinese smartphone giant Huawei.
