We Got the Best Camera Bags Reviewed

It does not matter what sort of camera you use—whether it’s the cheap point-and-shoot automatic kind, the manual type or the most expensive DSLR camera, you need to take care of your device. Cameras are handheld devices and were built to be sturdy but it cannot take plenty of abuse. It is actually a high-maintenance piece. Thus, when you’re traveling with a camera, you need to store it in an appropriate place where it will be protected against elements that can do damage on it. Traveling can be ...

Falling Off a Cliff

First, the scaremongering video. Anybody who was invested in these companies would soil their Underoos watching this. That's...well, that's bad. Right? Of course, they go on to explain that's only telling part of the story. Measuring everything from 2010 is ignoring the fact that 2010 was a peak for camera sales after years of explosive growth.  In 2000, digital cameras were weird and clunky things still. The Mavica I bought in 2001 recorded 1024x768 images on floppy discs. It was discon...

Huawei Unveils $2,800 Foldable 'Mate X2' Smartphone With Dual-Screen Redesign

Chinese smartphone company Huawei has today unveiled its latest foldable smartphone, the Mate X2, at a special event in China. The successor to 2019's Mate X, the phone has received a radical redesign and now features a large uninterrupted 8-inch screen that folds inwards, rather than having the main display on the exterior, as with the original device. The main screen uses a 180Hz display with an 8:7.1 aspect ratio, and when the phone is folded, a second 6.45-inch display (with a 12:9 aspec...

Counterintuitively Intuitive

Fountain pens, automatic watches, tube amps, revolvers, mechanical cameras... There's a certain fascination with this bygone tech. I've gone on before about how I love the mechanical nature of the Leica III. If all you want to do is wind it up and click the shutter, that alone is enjoyable. Assuming, however, that you want to use it to actually make photographs, the process is a little more involved. Just getting the film into the camera with an old Barnack Leica can be an adventure for the uni...

...have another photo of Huck. Shot with a Nikon D3000 at ISO 400, using maybe the most bang-for-the-buck Nikon DX lens, the 35mm f/1.8G. Fast enough that I can one-hand the little DSLR with my right hand and wiggle my left hand up in the air to give Huck something to gaze at dramatically. . [Author: Tam]

Why Webcams Aren't Good Enough (slashdot)

Jeff Carlson, writes in a post: After consulting numerous webcam buying guides and reviews, purchasing a handful of the most popular models, and testing them in varying lighting situations, I can't escape the grim truth: there are no good webcams. Even webcams recommended by reputable outlets produce poor quality imagery -- a significant failing, given it's the one job they're supposed to provide. Uneven color. Blown highlights.

Now for a little color

I suppose the black-and-white treatment isn't appropriate for stained glass. This colorful window sits high over the nave of the abbey church at Fontevraud. It's not the best angle. I don't know why I snapped it from this spot and didn't think to reposition myself to better frame the shot. I don't know if this window is original, restored, or a reproduction. Fontevraud abbey, September 2003. A little history: I started taking pictures when I was around fifteen years old. I still have a few of ...

A little good, a little bad, a little happy, a little sad.

I saved up from some writing projects to buy a birthday present for myself. I'd mentioned earlier that I wanted to do a project this year where I did a bunch of photography with the little Nikon 1 system. So I scared up a used Nikon 1 V2 body from KEH and, since candid portraiture of my friends is my favorite kind of photography, I rolled the dice on a low-priced 1 Nikkor 32mm f/1.2 on eBay. The 32mm/1.2 is a very well-reviewed portrait lens and the best piece of glass for the Nikon 1 system. ...

Street Machine?

The cool kid street photography cameras all seem to be super compact things with APS-C sensors (big for a pocket camera; the same as in DSLR's) and fixed wide-ish angle lenses in the 28-35mm range. This guy is using a Nikon Coolpix A, this dude used a Ricoh GR II, and this cat's a fan of Fuji's X100 series.Thing is, those are all pretty spendy entrance ramps into a type of photography I don't know if I'm any good at or not. A used Coolpix A is gonna be at least $400 and the Ricoh GR series or on...

Space Cam

I thought it would be fun to finish out the winter doing a bunch of work with the Nikon 1 system, just for fun. Even though it's officially dead, gone, and buried by Nikon, who would probably prefer people forget its oddball initial misstep into the world of mirrorless cameras, I find they have a certain quirky charm. The 1" sensor, which is the same size as the one in my usual RX100 shirt-pocket camera, means that not only are even quality lenses extremely compact, but the camera bodies are, ...

Startups look beyond lidar for autonomous vehicle perception

Last CES was a time of reckoning for lidar companies, many of which were cratering due to a lack of demand from a (still) non-existent autonomous vehicle industry. The few that excelled did so by specializing, and this year the trend has pushed beyond lidar, with new sensing and imaging methods pushing to both compete with and complement the laser-based tech. Lidar pushed ahead of traditional cameras because it could do things they couldn’t — and now some companies are pushing to do the same wit...

Blasph-M-ous Rumors

There are rumors now of prototype crop-sensor RF-mount Canons (supposedly called the R7) running about in the wild. The nomenclature would seem to hearken to the classic 7D/7D Mark II, which were the tough, pro-grade crop-sensor bodies that were rough equivalents to the full-frame 5D series bodies. This would indicate that the M-series APS-C mirrorless system's days are truly finally numbered. There are a couple of indicators that the M line will limp on for another year or two before fina...
