As of October 2023 by SIGMA. Figures are for L-Mount. Additional specifications included in the full press release below. The SIGMA 10-18mm F2.8 DC DN | Contemporary uses an aspherical concave lens with a large polarization ratio and high refractive index in the first group, reducing the number of elements in the first group and shortening the overall length. Additionally, a new push-on petal type hood has been developed. Thanks to the new structure with a spring and lever, which is not utilized by any other manufacturer, the hood has been made both thinner and smaller, which also contributes to the overall compactness of the lens. The optical design of the lens delivers a short 4.6 inch (11.6cm) minimum focusing distance and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:4 at the wide end, allowing for close-up photography with pleasing background separation. The optical design also minimizes focus breathing, and the stepping motor delivers swift, quiet autofocus during both still and video use.

The ultra-wide angle-of-view is ideal for hand-held vlogging that requires the capture of both the subject and the environment.

Supports various camera functions The lens is compatible with the electronic image stabilization function, aberration correction function, DMF, and AF+MF in camera bodies from various manufacturers. The advantage using this ultra-wide-angle lens is that it provides a generous angle-of-view even when the electronic image stabilization function crops the image. * Function available on supported cameras only.

Mobile Compatibility: Finally, the site should also be fully mobile compatible and, ideally, have a dedicated mobile app - so you can play your favourite games as and when you like. These are just some of the factors we look at when choosing our favourite sites - the ones that we believe will give you the very best gaming experience possible. The History of Online Casinos in Luxembourg Online casinos in Luxembourg have a relatively recent history, especially compared to other major European countries. In the early 2000s, as internet access grew, more people started to show an interest in online gambling and casinos. However, initially, Luxembourg lacked any tangible specific regulations for online casinos, which meant that many residents of the country turned to foreign sites. Then, in 2007, the government introduced the very first draft of legislation to regulate online gambling. Following this, in 2009, the Law of 21 May actually addressed the legal framework and established a licensing system for online gaming operators. Since then, a few licensed online casinos have emerged, offering a selection of games to Luxembourgish players while complying with local regulations. To this day, the sector continues to evolve, mirroring the country's ever-changing attitude toward online casinos and gambling. Online Gambling in Luxembourg Now Despite its relatively small size, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is actually one of Europe's wealthiest nations. Maybe because of this, the people of Luxembourg seem to enjoy spending some of their spare cash on online gambling activities, more so, in fact, than any other European country. What’s more, because there are no specific regulations surrounding players from Luxembourg using foreign-based online casinos, it means that they can play as much as they like. On top of online casino gaming, the country has one sole licensed establishment - Casino 2000, which contributes quite significantly to national revenue. Other than this, strict laws place a number of limitations on casino games and slot machines, while popular lottery terminals known as ZUBITO can be found in supermarkets and cafés. However, because there is no proper licensing system, Luxembourg does miss out on the potential tax revenues that could come from local online casinos. At the time of writing, the nation has in place a complete ban on the establishment of gambling companies within its borders - but this doesn’t seem to deter local residents from taking part in gambling activities. Whilst there have been discussions regarding legislation, nothing has so far come to fruition. The Future of Online Casinos in Luxembourg The future of online casinos in Luxembourg holds the potential for many changes. With a growing interest in online gambling within the country, it may be that there are future efforts to start regulating and licensing online casinos in the country - meaning a safer and more controlled gaming environment. This could also lead to increased tax revenues for the country - another big win. This could also see a demand for a wider variety of games and improved user experiences - which may then prompt existing operators to expand their offerings and invest in even more advanced technologies. For now, discussions about the legalisation of local casinos remain on the table - which could potentially allow Luxembourg to take advantage of the economic benefits a thriving online gambling industry brings. The Most Popular Online Casino Games in Luxembourg In Luxembourg, like most other countries, you’ll have access to a massive selection of casino games, especially at our highest-rated online casinos. Our top sites offer a massive selection of both classic and modern, cutting-edge online slots from some of the most impressive developers out there such as Yggdrasil, Microgaming, Thunderkick, NetEnt and more. Bus slots are just the beginning, you’ll also find a decent assortment of table games - with popular options such as blackjack, roulette, poker and baccarat. Fancy something a little different? Then there are live dealer variants along with more unique gaming experiences like keno, bingo, and Slingo (a fun fusion of slots and bingo). While Luxembourg's gaming availability may be more compact than that of some of the biggest gambling markets, there’s still plenty to enjoy - meaning that every type of player can discover a game to enjoy. Here are some of the most popular to look out for… Blackjack In Luxembourg, blackjack is one of the most popular table games for many reasons - it offers some of the best odds out there, fast gameplay - and the potential for some decent winnings. Online blackjack pits players against the house rather than other players, so you won’t need to wait for other players to make decisions before you receive your cards and play your hand. Like all casino games, make sure you monitor your bets and decisions - such as doubling down, and make sure you always play within your budget. However, if patience isn't your forte, you might want to try something else - especially if effective money management isn't one of your strengths Roulette Online Roulette is another game that enjoys serious popularity in Luxembourg - both online and in brick-and-mortar casinos. Despite its relatively simple rules, roulette is still massively exciting - thanks to its fast-paced gameplay and impressive winning potential. Moreover, roulette's flexible betting range caters for all types of players, offering options for bets for as low as €1 up to €150 and even beyond. This means that you can choose a wager that suits you - whether you prefer modest or more substantial bets. Lottery Considering that Loterie Nationale holds the exclusive licence for gambling operations in Luxembourg, it will come as no surprise that lottery games rank some of the most popular gambling games in this tiny nation. Some of the most popular choices include Luxembourg Joker and Extra Lux. Online Slot Games Slot machines were some of the first online casino games out there and, over time, their popularity and variety have gotten bigger and better - with developers constantly improving functionality, gameplay and aesthetics. One of the best things about online slots are the many features they offer - progressive jackpots and free spins rounds are available in some of the very best games. While some consider slot games to be repetitive or lacking in skilled gameplay, they are still immensely popular - defying all the odds to stay top of the list of the most popular type of game in Luxembourg and across the world. Bingo Games As with slots, a common misconception about bingo is that the game lacks excitement because again, it’s all about luck. However, with some games including features like Rapid Bingo™ and prize multipliers, there’s plenty of excitement to be had - and thus it remains a popular source of enjoyment for Luxembourgers. Sports Betting Sports betting is also legal in Luxembourg - and the country boasts a massive number of sports betting fans - especially football betting fans. However, the most popular bookies are international bookmakers - some of the biggest and best in the world. Video Poker Video Poker is a fun and unique hybrid game that sets it apart from the rest. It blends elements of chance and skill - and while luck certainly plays a massive role in the hand you are dealt, your decisions will certainly influence your final prize. As a player from Luxembourg, you’ll have access to all different versions of video poker such as Deuces Wild - with its enhanced winning odds that make it great for if you have a limited bankroll and you are after a high-risk game. In contrast, you could try Jacks or Better, which mirrors the standard video poker machines - with more modest rewards and a potentially lower risk factor. Mobile Games These are simply mobile-optimised versions of the above games, that have been specially designed to give you seamless accessibility on various mobile devices - smartphones and tablets. The best are compatible with all operating systems,so you can enjoy a hassle-free gaming experience without the need for any downloads or installations, thanks to the use of HTML5 technology. The Most Popular Game Providers in Luxembourg Because Luxembourg gamers rely on European online casinos - where they can access some of the best game providers in the world. Some of the top gaming developers to look out for include: BetSoft Gaming Blueprint Gaming Evolution Gaming Microgaming NetEnt Play'n Go Pragmatic Play Red Tiger Gaming Yggdrasil Gaming And more. Some of the standouts in the Luxembourg casino scene include SoftSwiss, along with Microgaming's Quickfire and Yggdrasil's Masters. These offer massive game libraries of more than 1,500, 2,000 or even 3,000 titles. Moreover, it's important to note that every online casino offers you the option to play games without the need for downloads, so you can try out all the different game providers and titles instantly. Online Casino Bonuses in Luxembourg As Luxembourg players basically rely on EU online casinos, you'll come across the same casino bonuses commonly found throughout Europe. Among the bonus offers available in Luxembourg's online casinos, some of the ones you’re likely to come across include: Match Deposit bonuses and Welcome Bonuses Free spin bonuses Reload bonuses Loyalty bonuses Monthly specials Personalised promotions Tournaments and prize draws VIP Club and loyalty bonuses The Top Payment Methods at Luxembourg Online Casinos The best online casino payment methods for Luxembourg players is very much a matter of personal preferences. However, Luxembourgers can generally use the same payment methods available at most European casino sites with some of the most common methods including: Visa Visa Electron MasterCard Bank Transfers EcoPayz Neosurf Neteller Paysafecard Skrill Trustly In addition, it's important to note that at some sites, cryptocurrency options are also available. Nowadays, there are some online casinos that allow you to deposit and withdraw using digital currencies such as Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum and plenty of others. It’s also worth noting that Luxembourg's banks generally won’t restrict financial transactions to and from online casinos, so you can enjoy more flexibility when managing your deposits and withdrawals. However, remember to pay attention to payment processing times and withdrawal limits, as these can have a big impact on your overall experience. Withdrawal Times Online casinos available in Luxembourg usually offer fairly reasonable payment processing times - although they might not be exceptionally fast. While deposits are typically processed smoothly and in real-time - practically instantly, withdrawals can take anywhere from a few hours to three business days to complete. To speed up the withdrawal process, it’s a good idea to complete the Know Your Customer (KYC) verification process when you first sign up. However, it’s worth remembering that the pending period for withdrawals can vary between different casino sites and is not always consistent. Deposit and Withdrawal Limits The minimum withdrawal limits can vary at Luxembourg casinos, but they are usually set at about €20. That being said, some less reputable casino sites may have a higher minimum limit, some asking for withdrawals of €50 or more. Choosing a site like this isn’t a great idea - as it is much harder to get hold of your winnings, especially if you’re a low roller or a more casual player. Regarding maximum withdrawal limits, these can vary massively from one casino to another. Most sites offer withdrawal limits ranging anywhere from €2,000 to €4,000 per transaction, with monthly limits often capped at €40,000. However, some of the best casinos extend their withdrawal limits to as high as €50,000 per 24 hours - and some even offer unlimited withdrawals for high rollers and VIP players. Advantages and Disadvantages of Online Casinos in Luxembourg Online casino gambling is completely legal in Luxembourg - and it offers players the same benefits as other European counterparts. However, it’s always a good idea to be cautious when registering for an account - especially on a less-established platform. In recent years, there has been a big rise in the number of scam websites that set out to deceive users into making deposits and giving out personal information. As such, we strongly recommend you check the sites out and read comprehensive casino reviews to give you important insights into the casino's reputation, welcome bonuses, game selection, payment methods, licences, terms and conditions and more. This information means you can make more informed decisions about where to spend your time and money for a secure and enjoyable online gaming experience. The Online Gambling Laws in Luxembourg Luxembourg has adopted a pretty unique approach to gambling regulations that benefits its residents. Although the country's gambling laws haven't undergone recent changes, their interpretation has shifted, which has effectively legalised online casino gambling. Here's how it works: Previously, Luxembourg had no specific laws regarding the legality of online casino gambling, although it did have established regulations for land-based casinos. Generally, European countries consider online gambling illegal unless it has been specifically legalised. However, Luxembourg has taken a different stance. After careful consideration, Luxembourg's Ministry of Justice along with the law firm BSP, stated that the country's existing national gambling laws, initially designed for land-based gambling, also extend to the online gambling sector. Essentially, this means that Luxembourg players can legally enjoy online casino games at any licensed Luxembourg casino under the original 1977 Gambling Law. The main challenge, however, arises from the absence of any Luxembourg-licensed online casinos - at least as of now. But that doesn't mean you can’t play online casino games in Luxembourg. As an EU member state, Luxembourg is technically bound by EU Article 56 TFEU, which allows Luxembourg players to play at any EU-licensed casino. As such, Luxembourg does not actively restrict its citizens from betting at online casinos licensed in another EU nation - so as a Luxembourg player, you are free to register and play at European online casinos that accept players from Luxembourg without worrying about penalties or punishments from any national gambling authorities. What’s more, if the online casino site is regulated by a reputable licensing body like the Malta Gaming Authority, you can have complete confidence that you are playing at a legal, secure and safe online gaming site. Conclusion So, there you have it! The very best online casinos in Luxembourg and everything you need to know about online gaming in the country.

Online gambling is legal in Luxembourg, with the country's existing gambling laws covering both land-based and online casinos. However, there are currently no online casinos licensed in Luxembourg so you’ll need to play at an online casino that is licensed by a well-known authority such as the MGA, UKGC or Curacao. Is Playing At an Online Casino in Luxembourg Safe? Yes. Online casinos that offer their services to Luxembourg players are generally considered safe - as long as you stick with one that has a strong reputation in the industry and operates under the regulation of reputable licensing authorities like the MGA or UKGC.

Article thumbnail News Release Takes Bold Steps to Reform Social Media For a Healthier, More Connected Future


Unwiring officially launches to empower individuals in the fight against social media's negative impacts and unethical practices. The organization is led by Saahil Mishra and a diverse team of passionate teens who’ve developed several initiatives to catalyze positive change within social media. “I worry about the impact of social media on my generation. A surge in social isolation, mental health issues, disinformation, and political polarization has challenged our connection on both an interpersonal and societal level,” said Saahil Mishra, founder and social media activist. Mishra also serves as a research assistant at Stanford Social Media Lab and writer for the Poynter Institute’s Media Wise. Earlier this year, Mishra participated in his first TEDx Talk event in San Francisco. Unwiring is educating and empowering young people to drive real, representative change within social media. The team curates timely educational resources including a series of self-produced online videos, curriculum on social media’s inner workings and impacts, and editorial pieces centered around the youth perspective on social media’s harms and possible solutions. Unwiring also is hosting a ReDesign challenge for youth to pose ideas for social media reformation this fall and a youth summit in 2024. United States Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy issued a call for urgent action by policymakers, technology companies, researchers, families, and young people alike to gain a better understanding of the full impact of social media use. Recent research shows that adolescents who spent more than three hours daily on social media faced double the risk of experiencing poor mental health outcomes, such as symptoms of depression and anxiety. “When we advocate for internal platform changes, business model regulations, major culture and paradigm shifts, we can together build a healthier more connected future,” adds Mishra. “We invite teens to join us in this important movement by sharing their stories with us.” Visit and engage on Instagram, YouTube, TikTok, X formerly known as Twitter: @unwiring_org.

Only-Of-Its-Kind Filterbaby Launches on Thirteen Lune


Filterbaby, the first and only clinically tested and dermatologist recommended skincare water filter for the face is expanding its retail footprint. The brand has launched on Thirteen Lune, the popular E-Commerce site for minority founded beauty brands. Since its 2022 inception, Filterbaby has seen tremendous growth; selling nearly 100,000 units and garnering over half a million followers on social media and one billion views on Instagram, Tiktok and Youtube. "We at Filterbaby are absolutely elated to be welcomed into the Thirteen Lune community. This remarkable space, dedicated to empowering minority founders, resonates deeply with our values and aspirations. We are putting a flag on the ground stating that water quality significantly impacts skin; our mission is to transform people’s life through better water. We are so glad that Thirteen Lune is providing the ideal platform to amplify our mission. We're honored to join this collective force for positive change in the beauty industry." said Xin Shui, CEO/Founder of Filterbaby. While millions of skincare products flood the market, there is a striking absence of emphasis on the quality of water, a fundamental factor essential for achieving good facial skin health. Consumers spend thousands of dollars on skincare each year to optimize their skin health, yet the most fundamental element, water used to clean skin, is often subpar. Filterbaby’s founder is a third-generation female healthcare provider who had experience of treating over 10,000 patients. She discerned a profound correlation that exists between water quality and skin health. “There is a real necessity for this product as tap water quality is subpar in most states with excess chlorine or chloramine, microplastics, hard metals, unregulated chemicals, and infrastructure issues. Over the past few months, we received hundreds of before and after photos from customers with skin specific issues from eczema, rosacea, acne prone and dry skin who saw drastic improvements using Filterbaby,” explains Xin. By filtering impurities and micro-contaminants in tap water as small as 0.2 microns, Filterbaby ensures users receive higher quality water to improve their skin's health. It is clinically tested to improve skin hydration in just 2 weeks. Through consumer studies, it is also found to reduce irritation, protect epidermis, ultimately leading to radiant and healthier skin. In addition to Thirteen Lune, Filterbaby is sold on as well as Amazon, Urban Outfitters, and Their starter kit retails for $89. About Thirteen Lune: Thirteen Lune is an e-commerce destination designed to inspire the discovery of beauty brands created by Black and Brown founders that resonate with people of all colors. It reframes how Black, Brown and minority founded beauty brands are perceived not only from an industry perspective, but also for the consumer giving each brand a platform to educate and engage a wider audience. About Filterbaby: Research shows that most US households’ tap water contains chlorine, micro-plastics, heavy metals, and hundreds of unregulated chemicals. Filterbaby was created to reduce all of these skin irritating and harming pollutants. The brand has undergone certified third-party skin hydration lab measurement testing which showed that the filter helps increase hydration within two weeks of use. Clinically tested & dermatologist-recommended, made for skincare. Healthier skin starts with your water. Available on, Amazon, Urban Outfitters, and Thirteen Lune.
