snapgrip-2

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 [...]

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, [...]

  I love my 17-40 f/4 L Canon wide zoom.  Last year it grabbed me some tasty shots of storms and the aurora borealis!  Storms aren't that hard to shoot... until you hit low light, then the camera struggles to find that autofocus point.  Same goes for the aurora.  So you flip the switch and [...]

zytlus-1

If you use a Samsung Galaxy S4 and consider yourself somewhat of a smartphoneographer, check out the Ztylus Camera case and RV-1 Revolver Lens Kit which will effectively turn your phone into a multi-lens digital camera. We've seen lens attachment accessories before, but the Ztylus is a little different because it completely replaces the back [...]

Velocity Clip review

Velocity Clip-7

Let's admit it, if you own a smartphone you fancy yourself an amateur photographer or videographer. I know I do! The problem I always run into is keeping my smartphone steady while shooting video or pictures. I have looked into many tripod adapters and even some standalone mounts for my iPhone, but most of them [...]

I bring my DSLR camera with me to all sorts of places, as I never know when some crazy scene might break out that I would not want to miss photographing.  (Actually, my life typically isn't really quite that exciting.  But I digress.)  However, a DSLR isn't a point-and-shoot camera, and most times the bulkiness [...]

mutt-mount

We've covered a lot of POV cameras and accessories on The Gadgeteer.  These cameras, like the GoPro, often have mounting systems that allow you to mount them on your helmet or on a car dash, so it "sees" what you see.  What if you'd rather somebody else carry the camera, or you'd like to see [...]

Though I am far from considering myself a "photographer," I do like to take lots of photos with my DSLR.  And one thing I can tell you after bringing it with me to all sorts of places is that it is a bit of a pain to lug around.  That's right.  I've tried the stock [...]

Cameras, 35mm film or digital, can be very expensive investments.  Then you have to start buying other equipment, like lenses and filters, that add to the price.  Since most cameras built in the recent past have built-in flashes, it seems that adding a speedlight to your setup is often something that can wait until you've [...]

If you think all camera straps are the same, then think again. Did you think about it? Well, then you know that the camera strap is basically connected to the camera and hangs around your neck. Pretty simple, right?  Well, it can get a little more complicated than you think. When you consider the comfort, the [...]
