Professor Kobre’s Lightscoop Review

Earlier in October, Julie posted an article about an accessory for some 35 mm and digital SLR cameras called Professor Kobre’s Lightscoop.  The Lightscoop works with cameras that have a pop-up flash, and it is designed to  re-direct the harsh, direct light to the ceiling (or to a light-colored wall when the camera is rotated …

$35 alternative to a speedlight camera flash?

Professor Kobre’s Lightscoop is a clever and inexpensive ($35) device that clips on to the hot shoe of your DSLR or SLR camera. It then transforms the light from the pop-up flash into pro-quality light by reflecting the flash’s light to the ceiling, to bounce it back down on your subject. It is compatible with …

Gary Fong Lightsphere II Portrait Diffuser

In my line of work I frequently like to have portrait photos.  In the past I have sent patients to a local photographer, who did a great job.  The problem is one of expense and logistics.  I didn’t want the expense and the patients didn’t want the hassle of going there.  While I don’t need …

ColorSplash iPhone Photography App Review

Besides being a revolutionary phone, the iPhone is also my best camera. Not the best because it’s the highest megapixel camera, or has a great zoom lens (or one at all unfortunately), but simply because it’s the only camera I always have with me. So one of the best surprises on the iPhone 3GS was …

Eye-Fi Wireless SD Card Review

I recently went in search of a small camera, reasonably cheap, one that used off the shelf batteries and could produce good quality pictures. I selected the Nikon Coolpix L19. Nice camera, but much too simple to have gadget charisma. But what if it could be wireless? Now we’re talking gadget chic. Having experienced the …

Tag, you’re it with the ATP PhotoFinder Pro

I enjoy reviewing GPS photo tagging gadgets here on The Gadgeteer, so I will be interested to see how ATP’s latest PhotoFinder device compares to their previous models. They are hailing it as the answer to Sony’s GPS-CS3KA. The PhotoFinder Pro does sound like it has the upper hand due to the fact that it …

Message in a Memory Card and Photochaining

Have you guys heard of Photochaining or the Message in a Memory Card project? Both are similiar in that people save pictures to a memory card and then leave the cards in public places for people to find and view. The Photochaining concept is more along the lines of geocaching, in that people describe where …

i-gotU USB GPS Travel Logger (GT-120) Review

I recently reviewed the ATP GPS PhotoFinder mini photo geotagging module. I liked the concept, but found some issues with usability. Today I have a similar product for you. It’s the i-gotU USB GPS Travel Logger GT-120 from Mobile Action. It’s smaller and even easier to use than the PhotoFinder. Let’s take a look.
