Photography News: Three New Lenses, Huge Canon Sales
Whenever possible, I try to show you the photos I have taken in the past week in my regular Photography News. This photo is so fresh that the fish sticking out of the kingfisher's beak is definitely still in the belly of one of the chicks it was meant for....

Photography News: 4 New Cameras from 4 Different Companies
Last week was packed with news. Besides the unique opportunity to download raw files taken with the new Nikon Z8 on Photography Life, we have a variety of new cameras that arrived on the photography scene last week. Let’s take a closer look at them today.
Canon EOS R100 Announced: Basic Features, Great Price
The newest addition to Canon’s RF mount is the EOS R100, an entry-level APS-C mirrorless camera with a starting price of $479. Unsurprisingly, the EOS R100’s features are quite basic, and its tech feels a couple of generations old. But that’s by design – Canon’s goal here was price, not features.

Nikon Z8 Announcement: A Mini Z9 for $4000
Nikon just announced their long-awaited Z8 mirrorless camera, which aims to essentially mirror the flagship Z9 in a substantially smaller and less expensive body, just $4000.

Nikon Z8 Pre-Orders Open, Shipping in Two Weeks
The Nikon Z8 is set to ship on May 25 for a body-only price of $4000, and pre-order links are already available from most major retailers. There is also a new battery grip (the MB-N12) shipping later this month as well. Here are the pre-order links:
Photography News: Rumored Canon 500mm Zoom, Nikon + Canon Camera Sales
I wrote some of today's Photography News within this small, cozy office I set up near a kingfisher's nest. The period when the kingfisher parents incubate their eggs is a slow one for photography. It can take up to three hours between two rotations on the nest while you wait...
