Comprehensive assessment of Canon's new 200-400mm superzoom by a wildlife pro who's been testing the lens for the past 6 months. Andy's a Brit, so the humour is offbeat, but definitely worth reading about his experience using  and punishing the lens in working conditions over a 6-month period.

Very funny video on Adobe's CC model - but be prepared for some rough language!

Another 24 rhinos killed for their horns ! On 25 April, the number of rhinos killed this year in South Africa stood at 249. Less than a week later, on 30 April, that figure has soared to 273. At this rate, we're on track to lose more than 800 by year's end.

249 rhino have been killed so far this year in South Africa. Should the trend continue, a tipping-point will be reached in about two years, after which the rhino population will go into decline.

"Today, thousands of young professionals have taken up wildlife photography as a hobby, thanks to high incomes, easy availability of camera equipment, better access to wildlife habitats, and the ease with which they can display their work on social media.

A large proportion of this number are in it, not out of an intrinsic love of, or concern for nature, but because wildlife photography is seen as a 'cool', even 'macho' thing to do — the 'my lens is bigger than your lens syndrome'. These photographers, who will go to any lengths to get a picture, disturb or harass the creatures they are photographing, and damage fragile habitats."
