Photographing Leitz Park with the Leica S

Richard Seymour, British industry and architecture photographer, was one of the first to try out the new Leica S (Typ 007). He went to Leica Camera AG's headquarters at Leitz-Park to test the camera out.

Epson Inkjet Printers Robbing You Blind

We've all had that sneaking suspicion that inkjet printers wasted a lot of ink, especially during "cleaning cycles." What we do know is that inkjet ink is one of the most expensive fluids on Earth. Well, it turns out the Epson 9900 is especially egregious. A single color cartridge runs about $100 USD (with a full set running $1,000 USD). In testing, on average, a 700ml cartridge will still contain about 100ml of ink when you’re forced to replace it (often they contain 150ml or more). On the smaller 350ml cartridge, 60-80ml of ink was left!

EISA Awards Leica Q Premium Compact Camera 2015-2016

EISA has awarded the Leica Q (Type 116) camera the "European Premium Camera of 2015-2016." They write, "The Leica Q is a hugely impressive camera that combines state-of-the-art technology with traditional design. The 28mm wide-angle lens is incredibly sharp and the fast electronic shutter, means you can shoot wide open at f/1.7 even in bright sunlight. The 24-million-pixel full frame sensor gives superb image quality, even at high ISO settings, and the traditional control dials give intuitive shooting. The 3.7M-dot electronic viewfinder pairs well with the smoothly-damped focus ring for manual focusing, while the touchscreen makes autofocusing away from the centre of the frame easy. These elements all combine to make the Q the best digital camera Leica has yet made, despite its high price." Read more below for video!

You can check out the images seen in the video over here and more on his website and also catch up with him on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Read more below!
