I am an avid digital photographer, and I love to bring my DSLR with me where ever I go.

Pixeet Panorama iPhone Fisheye Lens Kit Review

on Monday, October 3rd, 2011

I often say how much I like the iPhone 4′s camera. It takes very good pictures considering that it has a 5 megapixel fixed lens. It’s no DSLR, but I find that I take many more pictures than I ever have before, mainly due to the fact that it’s always in my pocket or gear Read More…

Spy Camera in a Chewing Gum Pack

on Friday, September 23rd, 2011

Here’s another camera for your espionage games or nanny surveillance.  This HC-GUM Covert Gum Stick Camera/DVR from Smarthome looks like an old-style pack of Wrigley’s Doublemint gum – if you don’t look too closely.  (They have the look right, but for some reason it’s marked with “Dangerous Material” and described as a lighter.)  It takes still Read More…

Digital cameras are great.  They’re convenient, fun, and are becoming idiot-proof.  Then the Fuji X100 came into my life and I realized just how lazy and dependent on technology I’ve been when taking snapshots.  How did this happen?

Posted in: Camera Gear, News

Lens cap covers are a necessary evil.  They protect my DSLR camera’s lens when I’m not using the camera, but they are so easy to lose.  I’ve resorted to buying those keepers that you glue on to the cap and attach to the camera strap with an elastic band.  You don’t lose the lens cap Read More…
