Slide

So, you have that camera you always wanted and now you are looking for accessories to help make you a better shooter. Neck straps and hand straps are a couple of items that come to mind when I think of camera accessories and, the Clutch, Slide and Anchor Links Kickstarter project from Peter Dering and [...]

Expert Shield 1

I have a Fujifilm X-M1 camera that I purchased not too long ago. I thoroughly enjoy using this camera and intend to take good care of it. I had been thinking about purchasing a screen protector for the LCD screen to protect it from scratches, especially when I wear the camera around my neck and [...]

brando-wifi-microsd-adapter

Tablets and smart phones are a great way to carry and share photos; they have replaced those little photo albums called "brag books" that people used to carry in their purses or gear bags.  Many of these mobile devices have cameras to take photos with, but let's face it, the quality of those photos aren't [...]

triggertrap-for-smartphones

I've purchased remote shutter releases for all of the Nikon DSLRs that I own.  Some are wireless, some are wired, but they all require me to push a button to get a photo - and that's all it can do.  With the Triggertrap cable and an app for your smart phone (most versions of iPhone [...]

onslot-1

When I first saw the OnSlot On-Hot Shoe Cleaner I was confused because I didn't know there was such a huge problem with dirty hot shoes on our cameras. But then I read the product description and learned that the hot shoe is just a place to store the OnSlot when you're not using it. [...]

brando-quick-selfie-pole

When using your cell phone to take selfies, you are limited by the length of your arm.  That limits the number of people you're able to include in a photo, and you may find it hard to trigger the camera when you've got your arm stretched out to the limit.  With Brando's Quick Selfie Pole [...]

nova-external-flash-2

iPhones have decent cameras, and you can snap even better photos with the built-in flash.  That flash does have its problems, though, because it's fired directly at the subject.  Photos can look harsh if you were too close to the subject, or they can be dark if you were too far away.  The Nova external [...]

It can be hard to hold the iPhone steady while you reach for the virtual button on the screen or find a volume button to trigger the camera to snap a picture.  If you like taking pictures with your iPhone but you'd like controls that are easier to find and use, consider the Snappgrip iPhone [...]

decal-photo-frames-2

Do you still take a lot of photos with a film camera?  Or perhaps you use digital, but you still like to print out your images?  In either case, you probably like to display them, and you probably want something that looks more polished than thumbtacks or double-sided tape to attach them to the wall.

Canon's EF 16-35 f/2.8 L II is a very popular lens, particularly for landscape and architectural photography.  It has remained out of the reach of many enthusiast photographers due to its very high price  ($1700, but at the time of this writing there is a $200 mail-in rebate).  The lens is also not image stabilized, [...]

36) Full bag with tripod

I love photography.  There is seldom a moment when I am not at work and there isn't a camera in my hand.  Like all photographers, I go through camera bags like crazy.  What works for one application somehow doesn't seem to work for another.  I have used such camera bags as the Billingham Hadley Pro [...]

olloclip-for-ipad

Someone once said that your best camera is the one you happen to have with you.  Sometimes your iPad is the camera you happen to have, and for some people, the iPad is the only camera they have.  The iPad's back camera is pretty good, but it could be improved, and that's the purpose of [...]

Torn. Conflicted. Confused. Verklempt.  Ok, maybe not verklempt, but conflicted, yes.  I am one of those people who gave up the traditional digital camera and exclusively use my Samsung Galaxy S4 as my digital camera.  It’s with me all the time, right?  And like many of you I have struggled to take good pictures consistently [...]
