The Fujifilm Fujinon XF 80mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro ($1,199) isn't just a photographic tool. It's a statement from Fuji that shows just how good its lens design can be, and how much image quality you can squeeze out of the APS-C X system, assuming you don't mind spending the money and carrying a hefty chunk of glass. The macro lens features life-size magnification, strong optical stabilization, and an all-weather design. At close to $1,200 it's not a budget choice, and its also quite heavy.
Insta360 is updating its Nano model for 2018. The Nano S ($239.99) is a bit more expensive, but it also does a bit more than the average 360 camera. In addition to shooting spherical video, it supports a cropped view (first seen in the Insta360 One), live streaming, and chat with a new split-screen mode. We haven't had a chance to test it yet, but can share preliminary thoughts. The Nano S follows the design cues of its predecessor.
GoPro has high hopes for its first 360-degree camera, the Fusion ($699.99). CEO Nick Woodman describes it as the most versatile creative tool ever created. We're not going to go that far, and you have to remember that Woodman is enthusiastic about, well, everything. The Fusion sets itself apart from other 360 cameras thanks to high-resolution capture (5.2K) and software that leverages those extra pixels to pan, zoom, and display spherical video in a traditional frame. GoPro calls this OverCapture.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
