Here are the rules: every item described herein is small enough to fit inside a reasonably normal stocking and each is something that every photographer will appreciate. Price was not part of the selection process, nor was foot size.

This video from The 8-Bit Guy is a heck of a lot of fun for those of us who remember using early digital cameras that recorded images and videos to floppy disks, super disks and CDs. Ok, we’re showing our age but who cares?

Well now if this isn’t incredibly frustrating! Susan L. Angstadt, a staff photographer at the Reading Eagle in Pennsylvania spent all day Friday preparing to capture the spectacular demolition of some local smokestacks for the newspaper only to get “photobombed” at the last second by a guy with an iPhone who leapt in front of her.

Here at Shutterbug we’re not big proponents of destroying perfectly good camera gear just for kicks. But once in a while we can’t resist sharing a video like this one, in which a working Canon SLR camera is cut in half with a 60,000 PSI waterjet—just to see what’s inside.

When Christopher James was a kid he frequently got lost in his daydreams, a place full of imagination and exploration he calls “The Deep.” These days as a photographer with an obvious sense of humor, he frequently returns to “The Deep” for inspiration.

We’re not sure if this video is funny or sad, but it conveys an important warning: Don’t drive off with your father’s expensive camera on the roof of your car. That’s what happened to this poor soul (and the ill-fated camera) during a recent road trip.

The Raw vs. JPEG debate seems to be a neverending one. Some photographers say that shooting JPEGs simplifies their workflow and lets them spend more time behind the camera and less time behind the computer.  Raw shooters, on the other hand, insist their approach utilizes unprocessed “digital negatives” straight out of the camera—thereby giving them maximum control and uncompromising results.

My friend Kasia (not her real name) bought a Click Bit bracelet last month to track her photography activity and immediately became obsessed with recording every detail of her camera life. Not passively obsessive, either—she’s become a compulsive, fanatical, evangelistic, raving maniac. But let’s go back to when she was still just chubby Kassie…
