Adobe Photoshop doesn’t turn layers into smart objects by default, so it can be easy to forget how useful they are. But they have some amazing benefits that you should know about – most of all, the ability to re-edit filters that you’ve applied to a layer.
The newest Z-series lenses were announced today: a 50mm f/2.8 and 105mm f/2.8 lens, both of which are capable of 1:1 magnification macro photography. The lenses will cost $650 and $1000 respectively, and Nikon says they’ll ship by late June. Let’s take a look at them below.
Camera companies have really been fans of development announcements recently! Today, alongside the formal announcement of two Nikon Z macro lenses, Nikon also revealed more details about the upcoming 28mm and 40mm pancake primes that have been on the roadmap for a while.

Photographers in certain parts of the world are in for a treat tomorrow, as there is a total lunar eclipse on Wednesday, May 26! It’s visible in western North and South America early in the morning (local time), as well as Australia and Southeast Asia in the evening.
It can be very useful to understand how to photograph the Moon with your digital camera. Sometimes, you might want to capture the Moon when it is full and beautiful, while other times you might want to capture an interesting event like a supermoon or Lunar Eclipse.
