DxO ONE turns your iOS device into a DSLR

The camera on my iPhone 6 Plus is okay, but it’s no where as good as my Nikon D5100 DSLR.  The camera on my iPad is no where near as good as the camera on my iPhone.  Sometimes you have to use the camera you have with you, and often that’s not the Nikon because it’s …

Turn back time with the Instant Photo Printing Camera

The Instant Photo Printing Camera brings back the days of the old Polaroid cameras that shot out a piece of photo paper so you could watch your photo develop right before your eyes.  I don’t think you’ll watch these develop, but using “a self-developing high-speed film, the camera produces a vibrant, scrapbook-worthy 2.5″ H x …

Inventio HD video sunglasses review

I have 4 kids, all of whom are actively involved in all sorts of activities.  So I am regularly engaged in video-recording their school and community activities.  The problem for me, as well as many other parents I am sure, is that when you are recording something like a soccer game, you often miss the …

You won’t be a square with the Polaroid Cube

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 …

D-Link Outdoor HD Wireless Network Camera DCS-2330L review

I’ve been looking into a security system for my home, but I keep running into the cost issue of a monthly service charge.  So, I took a different tack and decided to cobble together my own using off the shelf network cameras.  I had several cameras arrayed around the house, but I was missing a …

Ztylus Revolver Smartphone Camera Kit review

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 …

The Tamron SP 150-600mm might be the Great White Whale of lenses

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 …

This is perhaps the simplest digital camera on the market today

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 …

Image quality evaluation – how does your device score?

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.
