A few months ago the NHL began using GoPro’s to capture incredible POV shots for game promo, but starting this weekend players will be wearing the action cameras on the ice during the NHL All-Star Skills Competition and Sunday’s All-Star game.
Although GoPro’s have long been a fixture in individual action sports such as skateboarding, snowboarding and surfing—this deal with the NHL is the first time GoPro is working with a professional sports league, and the POV shots are pretty incredible.

The six remaining photographers lost their jobs yesterday
Another photo department at a major magazine has blinked out of existence—a story that is all too common in today’s media world. According to NPAA, yesterday the six remaining staff photographers at Sports Illustrated lost their jobs as Time Inc. undergoes major restructuring.
“Unfortunately economic circumstances are such that it has cut the six staff photographers,” Brad Smith, Sports Illustrated’s Director of Photography, told the NPAA. ” Smith said that he hoped the six photographers would continue to contribute to the magazine “under slightly different circumstances.”
“Our commitment to photography hasn’t changed,” he said. “We’re still going to cover games, we’re going to shoot portraits, we’re going to cover Olympics, we’ll be at the Final Four, we will be at championships, we’ll be there.”
The photographers who lost their jobs yesterday include: Robert Beck, Simon Bruty, Bill Frakes, David E. Klutho, John W. McDonough, and Al Tielemans.

The lens will start shipping at the end of this month and will cost $1,199
We first heard about the new Tamron 15-30mm F/2.8 DI VC lens back at Photokina 2014. We got a chance to check out the feel of it as well as the really impressive protective coating that covers the front element of the lens to avoid fingerprints and other grime accumulation. What we didn’t have, however, was the price. Now, it’s available for pre-order online for $1,199 and will start shipping at the end of January.
I think this is pretty much where everyone expected this lens to land, which makes it an interesting alternative to the first party Canon and Nikon options. It’s cheaper than the Canon 16-35mm F/2.8 even though the Tamron adds VC. It’s also a full stop faster than the 16-35mm F/4L IS despite checking in at the same exact price.
On the Nikon side of things, it’s considerably cheaper than the 14-24mm F/2.8 (though, that’s a tough lens to beat in terms of image quality at that focal range), and still a little cheaper and one stop faster than the Nikon 16-35mm F/4 VC.
We’re really looking forward to seeing how the lens performs in our test lab and we’ll share the results as soon as they’re available.
