Canon has just announced their first EOS-M mirrorless camera system, due for release in about 4-5 months.
Every other week, sometimes more frequently, a friend, family member, or colleague asks me when is the best time to purchase a digital SLR camera. Most often, I tell them to wait until the next Canon lens bundle promotion, unless of course they want to go with Nikon. It looks like we’re actually on the […]
A while back I talked a little about Panasonic’s TS2 toughened digital camera, and how it looks perfect for jobsite use. When looking to pick one up for myself, I found that the new TS3 had come out. Like the TS2, the TS3 is shockproof, waterproof (down to 12m/40ft), dustproof, and freezeproof. Looking at its IP6x […]
Domke’s “Post Office” shoulder pad is an add-on accessory that slips over insufficiently padded bag straps. Although intended to be used with camera bag straps, the P.O.-style shoulder pad can be used with any bag strap up to 2-3/4″ wide. I purchased a Domke post office shoulder pad about a year ago and have used […]
Even with optical and image stabilization capabilities built into compact digital point & shoot cameras and many SLR lenses these days, there are times when it just isn’t enough.

Over at Amazon, they’re slashing prices on Canon cameras like it’s nobody’s business. A little while ago I saw a price-drop on the Canon S95 from $400 to $386. Now, it looks like there’s an additional $50 coupon as well. Then, for kicks I checked out the 60D dSLR that I ordered earlier, and there was […]
I was recently in quite a pickle. I needed to take photos and record video at the same time, but I only had one tripod available. Luckily I had recently purchased a Manfrotto Super Clamp and a variable friction Magic Arm.
Carson’s Stuff-It is a microfiber lens cloth tethered to a small pouch. Pull the cloth out of its pouch to use it, and then stuff it back in for safe and clean storage. The Stuff-it also has a clip, allowing it to hang off your gearbag always at the ready for quick access. I’m the type […]
I typically carry a full sized Lenspen in my camera bag, but a colleague recently turned me onto Lenspen’s MiniPro, a shorter more compact version. While space is hardly a concern for me, the Minipro would be great for others that have smaller camera, binocular, and equipment bags. As with other Lenspens, the MiniPro features a soft retractable […]
