Last year, we told you about a Kickstarter project for a small, foldable, portable photography studio called Foldio.  People who sell products online or who review gadgets need a clear, well-lighted area to take photos for their postings.  Foldio was designed for the person who needed a home studio, but who didn't have much room [...]

Even though we've lived in our new place for just over a year now, we still don't have enough artwork on the walls.  I'm trying to find some Mid-century prints and metal art for the walls, but I still like to leave room for pictures of loved ones.  When Picture It On Canvas offered The [...]

(Supermodel Priya poses behind the three filters being tested in this review) I love photography.  There isn't a day when I don't have my camera with me, ready to capture something beautiful.  I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark III full-frame dSLR and my workhorse lens is the 24-105 f/4L.  A top-quality lens on a [...]

booq Boa Flow Graphite review

booq_flowgraphite-profile

Back in 2010, I reviewed the booq Boa Flow M backpack after decades of carrying a messenger type bag. Since then, I regularly use the Boa Flow M when I need to carry a majority of my tech/travel gear or am going out into the damp Seattle weather. I am surprised by just how much I like and [...]

novaflash

There's nothing more tragic than taking badly lit selfies snapped with your new iPhone 6. Don't subject the world, Instagram, Facebook, etc with your dimly or overexposed duck-faced pictures anymore. Run, don't walk to the nearest Apple store and buy a Nova Bluetooth flash. This is a wireless flash made especially for the iPhone. It's [...]

Smile-SelfieRemote-1

Whether you like it or not, the selfie is here to stay.  Capturing yourself in the moment is an extremely popular form of self-expression these days.  Heck, I used to turn my film camera around and point it towards myself and take what I hoped would be a usable shot.  Even some new phones are [...]

SJ400 with included underwater housing.

Time for another review for another action camera. This time this review is for SJCAM's Sports HD DV 1080P camera, the  SJ4000. At first glance, this camera resembles the look and feel similar to a GoPro camera. Many available action cameras on the market have taken a cue in design and form from GoPro cameras and this [...]

dropcase

The Dropcam Pro is my all time favorite security camera. It's my favorite because it provides the best wide angle image I've found in a security camera, it's easy to setup and has a very good web viewer and mobile app for remote viewing. Of course no gadget is ever 100% perfect for everyone and the main [...]

As the iPhone and other smart phones become the primary method for taking photos, an accessory market has developed. Now you can buy tripods, specialty cases, lenses and countless apps that promise to customize and improve anyone’s smart phone snaps.

I don't know about where you live, but where I am in Columbus, Indiana, people have horrible driving skills. I constantly see people run red lights and cut in front of you with little to no time to brake. I've often thought that I should consider buying a dash cam to use an insurance policy [...]
