ULTRALIGHT_ON_BODY_BELT_AND_STRAP-A17V9105_grande

I love cameras but a nearly equal obsession of mine is finding better ways to carry them wherever I go.  This has seriously piqued my interest:  the MindShift Gear UltraLight Camera Cover.  Available in two colors (blue or black) and three sizes to accommodate different sized camera setups.  It comes with an integrated belt and [...]

01) Camera Front

I love a good bowl of cereal.  It gives me the opportunity to put my favorite beverage, milk, into it.  I also love my digital photography.  I’ve been shooting with a Canon 5D Mark III full-frame camera for the last year and a half and I have to tell you, it’s a beauty.  Takes shots [...]

Sigh.  There's a bird out on that branch.  Boy, is it pretty.  Too bad all I've got here is a 70-200mm lens!  I'm gonna have to crop the heck out of this shot to get anything out of it.  SNAP!  Sigh. Sigh no longer, fellow photographers!  The preliminary reviews are in and the still-up-for-preorder Tamron [...]

superheadz-clap-digital-camera

The title statement isn't going to make this camera appeal to everyone, but it may be just what a young child with a budding interest in photography needs.  The Superheadz Clap Digital Camera isn't much bigger than a USB flash drive, and it even has a USB connector built-in, which eliminates the need to keep [...]

DxOMark_Mobile-1

These days everyone and their mother has a camera, be it cell phone, pocketable point-and-shoot, or expensive DSLR with interchangeable lenses. The more discerning (geeky) photographer who is on the prowl for a new device will want to find a credible independent source for image quality testing. I have found such a place, DxO Lab’s DxOMark. [...]

I like working in a mixed-media environment with my computer, paper notebook, and mobile phone all at my desk.  Sometimes I'll jot down notes in my notebook with a pen, since it's easier to do, as I take a phone call, or when someone is speaking.  After I write down a bunch of notes, sometimes [...]

pocket-reflector

Smart phones seem to be the camera most frequently used these days.  Many of them have weak flashes that don't do as good a job illuminating your subject as you'd like.  The Pocket Reflector, available from Photojojo, is a portable light reflector that directs extra light onto your subject for a better photo.  It folds [...]

DXG IronX DXG 5g9v-1

Lets face it, at 40+ years of age (closer to 50 than to 30) my hardcore extreme action sport days are far behind me. That doesn't mean I am an old stick in the mud, I still like to get out be active and I have even been known try new things. But now my [...]

What you see in the picture isn't a couple of camera lenses.  It's a couple of cameras!  The Sony CyberShot DSC-QX10 Smartphone Attachable Lens-Style Camera is a fully-functional, fully-featured camera minus an LED viewscreen.  Sony says this is the "first-ever zoom lens and sensor combo that clips right to your smartphone".  You can connect the camera [...]

My daughter always wanted a digital camera, but they were always too expensive to just hand over to a young child - and still are.  Of course, there were toy cameras, but they weren't enough for the older child who wanted to actually have a picture to keep - and they were expensive, too.  Now [...]

Sony_A3000-1

A New Sony DSLR camera was announced today - but hold on, it only “looks” like a DSLR.  The Sony A3000 is actually an E-mount mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera cloaked as a DSLR.  If you want a mirrorless that has a wrap-your-fingers-around proper DSLR-type handgrip, this might be an interesting choice.  The specs look pretty good, but definitely shout [...]

peakdesign_capturecameraclipv2_00

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 [...]

Olympus_E_M1-1

A prominent gear-related site was recently hacked, and a link to a “hands-on” video by Olympus technical specialist Rick Sasserath was leaked. The video demonstrated the not yet released Olympus OMD E-M1.  It has since been removed, but stills from the video are easily found.  If you do a search, it’s still possible to even [...]

If you enjoy keeping a journal, scrapbooks, stats and info about your daily life, you might be a lifelogger and not even know it. According to Wikipedia the term lifelogging means: Lifeloggers (also known as lifebloggers or lifegloggers) typically wear computers in order to capture their entire lives, or large portions of their lives. If you think wearing a [...]
