Buffs of infrared photography often go to great lengths to get the ethereal effects that define their images. Now that Kodak has served notice that their high-speed black and white IR film is on the endangered species list, there will be IR film shooters everywhere looking for a way to continue their exploration of that fascinating world. In the past year we have reviewed two Fuji...

The D3 is positioned as a pro camera, priced and marketed to those whose livelihood depends on consistently creating the best possible images, be they photojournalists, sports or fashion photographers. The two things that someone who makes a living in photography looks for in any new camera is quality and "what can this camera do for me?"

 

Don't let...

The second D-SLR from Panasonic, this 10-megapixel model is quite different than the original 7-megapixel Lumix DMC-L1. The latter--built like a tank, and still available--is an unusually traditional model in many respects. It resembles a large/heavy 35mm rangefinder camera and features "retro"-style controls, including a mechanical aperture ring on the...

The first Four Thirds format D-SLR with a built-in Image Stabilizer, the EVOLT E-510 is an incredibly versatile camera in many respects. This 10-megapixel model offers several benefits over the previous EVOLT models, including higher resolution, the faster TruePic III processor with superior noise reduction, plus additional features in Capture and Playback modes. But the new...

It's not the tools that capture the images; it's the photographer's vision that does the job. Nonetheless, here I am at the annual hardware orgy that is PMA, where smiling PR people try to put the best possible spin on the organized chaos that is the photo industry. Everyone has realized that digital imaging is not just another version of the widely...

As part of our coverage each of our reporters were asked to pick out what they considered the Best of Show product, service, or idea. In most cases it is the item that caused them to reconsider how they worked or that sparked their imagination. While each reporter had their beat, this category was open game for all, and most "crossed lines" to find their pick.

The digital SLR category continues to grow. Several manufacturers introduced new models during the photokina show; Canon, Panasonic, and Sony had unveiled their new entries sometime before the European trade show, so they are not included in this report. In any event, it's clear that the 10-megapixel or higher resolution category is becoming the norm in all types of...

Is it possible that one day we might be able to bypass basic, global in computer editing for our digital images, and rely instead on the powerful on-board microprocessors in future digital SLRs? That's the implication of some of the new features in Nikon's latest enthusiast-aimed camera, the D80. Priced at $999 (body only) list, with a kit including an 18-135mm...

The first 10-megapixel entry-level digital SLR to reach the market, the Sony Alpha A100 raises the resolution bar in the sub-$900 category. While that makes the camera particularly newsworthy, it's interesting in several other respects. This model is a hybrid, combining the best of the Konica Minolta Maxxum 5D with entirely new Sony technology and features. As discussed in...

It seems obvious that being part of a group is better than going it alone against the Canon and Nikon digital SLR juggernaut. The K-mount group now joins the Four Thirds alliance in competition with The Big Two. Developed jointly with Pentax Imaging (www.pentaximaging.com), Samsung's GX-1S digital SLR features a...

The Olympus EVOLT E-330 is the first interchangeable lens digital SLR with a true, full-time Live View feature. Framing a shot with the E-330 is just as convenient as it is with a compact digital camera. You can preview the subject in full color on a flip-out, variable-angle LCD monitor, another first for a digital SLR camera.

 

In fact, there are two distinct Live View...
