Photography accessory company Moment has released CineBloom, its new lineup of diffusion filters meant to ‘take the edge’ off your digital photos.
Inspired by cinema, the new CineBloom filters can be used with both stills and video, and ‘capture dreamy, film-like vibes straight out of a camera,’ not unlike the ‘Pro-Mist’ diffusion filters Tiffen produces.
The filters are constructed of ‘aerospace grade aluminum’ and ‘Japanese optical glass’ and come in seven sizes: 37mm, 58mm, 62mm, 67mm, 72mm, 77mm and 82mm. They’re available in two densities — 10% and 20% — so you can choose exactly how much diffusion you’d like. Moment has designed the filters in such a way that they can also be paired with the company’s variable neutral density filters for further creative control right in camera.
The filters are available for purchase through Moment’s online store. Prices start at $50 for the 37mm filter and go up to $80 for the 82mm filter; the density you choose doesn’t affect the price.
The Sony ZV-1 was designed specifically for vloggers, but this compact camera is an excellent option for still photographers too.
We got our hands on the brand new Instax SQ1: an easy-to-use instant camera that shoots square format film. Despite a couple of quirks, we think it’s a camera that photographers and non-photographers alike will find fun to use.
Sony’s a7C is among the smallest full-frame mirrorless cameras you can buy, and in terms of core capability, not much has been sacrificed for the sake of compactness. But are you ready to make it your next go-to travel camera? Find out how it stacks up in our initial review.
The Panasonic Lumix DC-S5 is a full-frame mirrorless camera but in a body smaller than the Micro Four Thirds GH5. It includes updates to Panasonic’s DFD autofocus system, creative photo modes, and video features that come close to matching the more expensive S1H.
Nikon’s new entry-level mirrorless full-framer feels anything but entry-level. And it may well be the model best positioned to convert remaining F-mount holdouts to Z-mount.
