Here’s an article talking about some upcoming workshops held by Sigma.

Fujifilm recently announced a new entry-level oriented camera that targets people just getting into photography. It looks pretty decent, a bit better than a typical smartphone camera.

And of course, I can’t forget about the amazing Light L16 that is making headlines internationally for its famous 16 lens camera. Here is an article from Business Insider talking about it.

Using the back button for focus and the shutter solely for taking the photo is really useful.

Of course, we have to follow up with planetMitch's overly excited video about the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and back button focus:
