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 […]

Giha Woo’s Constrained Ball device is a simple pen and pencil attachment that constrains the writing instruments to move in only one direction.

Right now it looks […]
Earlier this month, we talked a little about Sharpie’s new liquid pencils that they claim writes as smooth as a pen.

Looking at the customer reviews over at Amazon, many people are unhappy with the pencils’ performance, calling it “splotchy” […]

I started buying IZZE in 4-packs at the supermarket a while back, but now I just order them by the case […]

Once its novelty wears off (and it will), the Striker mine is still a rather innovative aimable LED accent light. While not really bright enough to be considered a worklight, it’s suitable for light duty lighting tasks. You can finder the […]

The SD780 has earned itself a solid reputation, but it’s a bit dated and is probably on the way to beinging phased out and replaced with updated models. Canon […]
