If you're a product of the 60's, 70's or even the 80's, you probably know the Polaroid name. But when the digital age went into full effect the Polaroid brand, probably best known for its instant cameras faded some. In honor of their 75th year in business Polaroid is trying to make a comeback with the… Read More

Do you have a good memory? Do you remember everything that happened on your last birthday, vacation or family outing? Do you wish you had some pictures from that one time... at band camp? Although most of us carry a smartphone with a camera, we can't take a picture every minute to document our lives. That would… Read More

Why limit yourself to taking selfies in your bathroom?  With the Samsung NX Mini camera, you can photograph yourself anywhere in the world.  You can always see what you're including in the shot, because the 3" LCD touchscreen view screen can flip up and face forward.  The camera is slim (0.9") and light (5.6 ounces)… Read More

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… Read More

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… Read More

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… Read More

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… Read More

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… Read More

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… Read More

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… Read More

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… Read More
