UPDATED February 2013 – there have been several cool new lenses released since I first published this list and those changes are reflected herein. I’ve also added a few more of the older lenses I’ve had time to test and fall in love with as well as another zoom. I’ve also added a section briefly […]

I recently got my hands on yet another camera strap. This one is called the Captureleash Camera Clip System. I think that if Steve Jobs designed a camera strap, this one might have been it. That’s both high praise and a warning. Read on to see what I mean. The basis of the Captureleash is […]

I recently had the chance to shoot some stills and time-lapse from the City Center in Las Vegas. To make shooting through the double glass windows easier we used Lenskirts. The LENSKIRT is a portable, flexible hood which you attach to the end of your camera lens. It allows you to shoot pictures / video through glass […]

You have probably noticed at some photo trade show or in some photo magazine that metal prints are all the rage. There are lots of companies making metal prints. I’ve seen prints from at least six different vendors. But I’ve never seen one that comes close to what you get from ImageWizards. They are aptly […]

CES is in Vegas so I stopped by for a look to see what was happening in the way of photography. This year, there isn’t an abundance of photo news from CES – but I did pass roughly 2000 booths offering iPad and iPhone cases and accessories. Back to photo – Canon and Nikon had […]

I love using LED lights for both still and video photography. It’s WYSIWYG lighting that’s quick and easy. But up until now, it’s been expensive. Back in 2009 I reviewed the Litepanels LP Micro Pro LED light. I liked the product but complained about its price. Fast forward today. I’ve owned four of the Litepanel […]

By Richard Harrington (With Comments by Scott Bourne in parenthesis) The Canon EOS-6D Digital SLR Camera falls into a unique position. It is the most affordable full frame sensor that Canon offers. The camera falls squarely between the 5D Mark III and the 7D in both price and features. 5D Mark III 6D 7D Price […]

Every year I write a series of several posts that note special contributions to the photo community. I name persons, products, etc. that I think were particularly valuable during the past year. This time I’m doing it all in one post. You may not agree with my choices, but you should at least be aware […]

I’ve spent the last two weeks or so almost exclusively shooting with my Olympus OM-D E-M5 camera. I bought the Olympus M.Zukio 75mm f/1.8 ED lens to go with it because it’s a great mid-range telephoto length and at f/1.8. That’s so fast it will make your head spin. Note: to have an f/1.8 150mm […]

If you are interested in wedding or portrait photography you should follow the amazing artistry of Jerry Ghionis. I think Jerry is one of the best wedding photographers in the world. He may be THE best. I’ve learned more from just watching him shoot than I have in three-day workshops with other photographers. He’s worked […]

I’ll let you in on a secret. I often use GoPro cameras where I used to use “real” cameras. That’s because the GoPro is a very versatile camera. And now that is doubly true. The new Hero 3 Black edition does just about everything but the dishes. Let’s cover some simple basics that many of […]

If you have a photographer in your family, or if your significant other is a photographer then in many ways, you have it made when it comes to holiday gifts. There are so many cool products out there that photographers will love. Everything on this list is something I myself have used or owned at […]

  I have a series of posts I’ve written answering these common questions. “What camera should I buy?” “What camera bag should I buy?” “What camera lens should I buy?” Today I am expanding that with a post on what tripod you should buy. Lately, fewer people use tripods than ever before. There are several […]

Why have HDR on an iPhone? Because you can! Sometimes an iPhone is the only camera I have on me, and I want the ability to go a little deeper. I see HDR as a great tool that can help get the shot in tough conditions. Sure, the iPhone has a built-in HDR ability that […]

There is no perfect camera bag. There I said it. It’s a license. Use it. Tell your spouse there’s a reason you need so many camera bags. Camera bags do different things for different people. I have had as many as 30 but now am proud of the fact that I have it down to […]

I own every major (and maybe even minor) photo plugin, filter, template and preset on the planet. I like many of them. But if I were asked to pick just one, I’d probably lean very hard toward Perfect Photo Suite 7. This product has matured very nicely and offers photographers just about everything but the […]

I’ve finally had enough time to take a look at the latest crop of photo books to cross my desk, and I’d like to suggest a few that I think stand out and  that would be worth your time. These are all winners and would also make great stocking stuffers this upcoming holiday if there’s […]
