It's more than a little strange that only two months earlier, Pentax announced its newest camera, the
Photographers and filmmakers of the past used to break out homemade tricks—some innovative and fun—when trying to achieve special effects to make their images stand out from the crowd.

The last few months have been a whirlwind for FUJIFILM's mirrorless division, with the company unveiling a suite of new sensor technologies inside the successors to a line of cameras that not everyone was sure would ever return. While the X-H2 and X-H2S are very exciting cameras and deserving of their flagship status, they aren't necessarily what most people think of when they think of FUJIFILM cameras: that would be the X-T line, and many have been waiting to see what these announcements would mean for the
