    Any photographer new or old will experience at some point if they haven't already the difficulty in viewing pictures on your camera's LCD while in harsh direct light. Shooting pictures outside on a nice, clear, sunny day is the wish of many photographers as it provides plenty of natural lighting and offers them the greatest ability to tweak their shots. What is good for actually taking the pictures doesn't however translate to optimum circumstances for viewing your freshly taken pictures on th...
  • Need “the vision?” Get the T-shirt [Geeky Clothing]

    As any true photographer knows, at the end of the day it doesn't matter how big your lens is, how expensive your camera is, or how many extra attachments you have. It's the ability for the person operating the camera to "find the shot". You may or may not actually have that gift but at least you can wear it on your chest, fooling the world and pretending you do. For that, we have the "Still Need the Vision" T-Shirt. Wear it with pride... Geeky-Gadgets...
  • Soft light and happy eyes: The LightScoop. [Review]
    by Mike

    Taking low light and no light pictures with a flash often ruins pictures with a harsh flash, demon-esque red eyes, and other unfavorable effects because of the direct light. To remedy such a situation, you can cover the flash with some object or fiddle with your camera until the undesired effect is reduced. Such things however are a pain and take away from you spending time on what matters -- taking a picture. The LightScoop by Professor Kobre is a neat little attachment for your digital DS...
  • Toshiba’s new CMOS censor to bring 14 megapixel cameraphones in 2010?

    Mobile photographers listen up, if you were looking for a higher megapixel count for your camera phone, step back, take a reality check and realize that camera's will not replace a good digital SLR anytime soon. In reality, real photographers already know that it's not necessarily the number of megapixels that matters most as it is the quality of the lens and algorithms/software used to shuttle physical images into "1" and "0" form. With that little factoid expressed, we can get on with th...
  • Lightscoop aims to make low light shots more natural.
    by Mike

    When taking pictures in low light conditions, using a flash often casts an unnatural, harsh directional light on the subjects or focal point in the picture. Professional photographers often make use of umbrella like attachments that help diffuse light and give it a more natural glow. But we're not all photographers with countless attachment bags or the associated deep pockets that it takes to buy such equipment. Thankfully nifty and affordable attachment called the "Lightscoop" may just have ...

    In the photography world, raw specs are usually what draw photographers to one camera over another.  However Pentax is looking to break that mold and add a little style to a rather bland looking market with their White K2000 DSLR camera.  Note the "white" in the name is the actual color.  As seen above, the camera immediately announces its presence, though in a cool collected sort of way.  Hopefully you'll bring a few wet naps with you as white isn't exactly the greatest concealer of ...

    JPEG has become somewhat of a household name the digital world.  JPEG XR was developed by "The Joint Photographic Experts Group" whom designed the original now aged JPEG.  Its relatively good quality combined with small size has made it a standard in many areas.  It's not perfect however.  Since a JPEG is a lossy picture format information is removed from the picture.  Making editing it somewhat limited.  Though more hardcore photography and photo editors don't touch JPEG with a ten ...
