Last year, we told you about a Kickstarter project for a small, foldable, portable photography studio called Foldio.  People who sell products online or who review gadgets need a clear, well-lighted area to take photos for their postings.  Foldio was designed for the person who needed a home studio, but who didn't have much room [...]

Even though we've lived in our new place for just over a year now, we still don't have enough artwork on the walls.  I'm trying to find some Mid-century prints and metal art for the walls, but I still like to leave room for pictures of loved ones.  When Picture It On Canvas offered The [...]

There's nothing more tragic than taking badly lit selfies snapped with your new iPhone 6. Don't subject the world, Instagram, Facebook, etc with your dimly or overexposed duck-faced pictures anymore. Run, don't walk to the nearest Apple store and buy a Nova Bluetooth flash. This is a wireless flash made especially for the iPhone. It's [...]

The selfie craze has swept the nation, it has been determined that some people are even addicted to taking selfies.  With smartphones having front-facing cameras, I guess this phenomenon was pretty much inevitable.  Heck, I was taking selfies with my little Olympus Stylus pocket film camera back in the 1980's, when I'd actually have to [...]

DxOMark_Mobile-1

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.

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 [...]
