Panasonic today introduces the new DMC-GX8 (GX8) Digital Single Lens Mirrorless Camera featuring a host of advanced functions packed in a splash/dust-proof rugged design. The DMC-GX8 integrates Dual I.S. (Image Stabilizer)1 for the first time in the LUMIX G series to gain powerful vibration correction. The Body I.S. and Lens I.S. can be switched in the LUMIX GX7 but both Body I.S. and Lens I.S. work at the same time to take maximum advantage of both stabilizers not only in wide angle but also with telephoto. Almost any type of vibration can be effectively suppressed with this innovative image stabilization system featuring max.3.5x (wide) / 1.5x (tele)2 wider correction angle. As a result, you can get a clear handheld shots in low-lit situations.

The high speed signal processing and DRAM memory chip work together to enable more than 5x faster readout of image data3 and are responsible for a variety of standout features that have previously been available in only a select few professional-level video cameras.
Timelapse Death Valley 2015 is an intimate 3 and 4-Night timelapse workshop designed for photographers and cinematographers that want to learn the skills needed to capture professional quality timelapses using DSLRs and Mirrorless cameras. The workshop combines classroom sessions with on-location shooting, and is designed for photographers of all skill levels.
As a professional photographer my gear list keeps growing and growing, so when I find tools that help lighten the load I get pretty excited. In 2013 I began teaching advanced night-sky time-lapse photography workshops under the dark skies of Moab, UT. One of the challenges I faced was how to light our foregrounds so that each workshop participant would be positioned properly to benefit from the effects of the light. While I brought three video lights of varying sizes to the workshop I soon discovered that everyone would benefit from having access to their own light. Plus, the video lights I already owned were large and way too bright, and each one needed a Sony NPF-550 style battery, which increased the weight even further. I did have a few that were dimmable, but at their lowest settings they tended to flicker which made them unreliable for timelapse work.
After weeks of searching google and Amazon I came across the OxyLED Q6 Rechargeable LED Light. With a price under $20, 4 intensity modes (2%, 50%, 75%, 100%) , and a built-in rechargeable battery that is claimed to last 72 hours at the lowest setting I had to give this light a try. When the light arrived a few days later I quickly began testing it. The first test I did was to see how long the light would last at its lowest brightness setting. After 20 hours I finally turned it off. All I really wanted to be sure of was that the light would last a complete night of shooting. At 20 hours I was thrilled.

Review by Cameratown's Ron Risman: "Let me introduce you to the V.360 - a 360° compact camera that captures the action all around you (in front, in back and on the sides) - eliminating the guess work as to where you should be aiming the camera. With a GoPro you're always trying to figure out whether you should aim the camera outward for a first-person view or inward for a 'selfie' view. With the V.360 everything will always be in frame.
