Wow, I have to say I wasn’t expecting for Lomography to come out with a medium format film camera, but here it is. Introducing the Lomography Belair X 6-12 Panoramic Medium Format Camera. Not only does this camera take 120mm film rolls, but it is also an interchangeable lens camera. There are two lenses included [...]
It looks like GoPro is once again turning the action camera world upside down by introducing the HERO3: Black Edition, the world’s first 4K-capable action video camera (at 15fps) that can also do 120 fps (at 720p). But seriously, just watch the video and be prepare to scrape your jaw off the ground. Now THAT is how you make a promo video!
As a follow up to my Extensive Review on the Sony A99, I did a still life studio ISO test to see how well the Sony A99 perform when I start increasing the ISO. Can the Sony A99 handle a low-light, high-ISO situation? Read on to find out.
When it comes to the life of a DSLR, there seem to be three different categories of photographers.
First, there is the photographer who babies their equipment. They never put a lens in a bag without first putting on both caps. They switch lenses in 0.5 seconds flat to avoid getting dust inside. Actually 0.5 seconds would be a little bit reckless, but you know what I mean. Their gear looks brand new even after many years of use. (The people I always hunt for when it’s time for me to buy a “new” camera!)

In this extensive hands-on review, I take a look at the Sony A99 full-frame DSLT camera. It is a very competitive, full-featured camera that has the sensor performance, noise control, color rendition, and more. This is the strongest camera yet from Sony.
B&H announced a price drop on their Canon 5D Mark III Kit with 24-105mm f/4L IS Lens today.

Following up the versatile and popular M-Plate Pro, Custom SLR just released the more compact M-Plate Mini which discards the attach point for their C-Loop Camera Strap Mount.
Last weekend I was able to capture a few frames using the brand new Nikon D600 at a wedding. While waiting patiently for Adobe to update Lightroom / ACR to accommodate the D600, I used Nikon’s ViewNX 2 to browse the D600 images, and play with Nikon’s powerful “Active D-Lighting” feature. The results were very impressive right out of the camera, but last night I was still truly floored when I downloaded Adobe Lightroom 4.2, and finally imported my Nikon D600 NEF’s. I will let the images speak for themselves.
Eye-Fi has just launched a larger and faster Wi-Fi SD card, the Pro X2 16GB class 10 SD Card for $99. The price of previous flagship card, the Pro X2 8GB Class 6 Wi-Fi SD Card has now dropped to $79.99.
When it comes to making camera filters like ND filters, we may think that the process of manufacturing them is pretty straightforward. But to make excellent filters like the Lee filters, a lot of technical knowledge and quality control are needed.
I always hated rebates. Waiting 2-3 months for a lousy $40 in the mail just wasn’t the most exciting way to save money, you know? Thankfully, Canon’s 5D mk2 rebate (Good until October 27th) is an instant rebate! I appreciate that Canon has skipped the mail-in nonsense and given us a flat-out discount.
