    Down From Olympus: What’s Going On At The Beleaguered Camera Company?

    Riding high from a series of mid- to high-level successes in its 2010 and 2011 camera line, Olympus execs could be excused for feeling good. However, as 2011 winds down, Olympus is not in the news for medical imaging devices or micro 4/3s lenses. Instead, it’s in the news for a scandalous affair that threatens to sink the company and has already claimed the company’s board. It was… Read More

    Photojojo’s iPhone Lens Dial Ups Your Mobile Photography Game

    I’ll admit that I’m a middling photographer at best, but that doesn’t stop me from buying all sort of expensive gear. Photojojo’s new iPhone accessory appeals to that same sense of camera gear lust in me but on a slightly smaller scale. The iPhone Lens Dial is an iPhone case with three different lenses mounted on the back, so you’ll never have to go long… Read More

    Samsung MV800 Review: For The Narcissist In All Of Us

Whether you’re straight-up obsessed with yourself, or a narcissist is hidden deep within, this thing just begs you to take pictures of yourself. And if your experience is anything like mine, you’ll really, really enjoy it. Read More

    Live Your Space Program Fantasies With A Retro NASA Camera

    This beauty is a Nikon F Photomic T, which first hit the streets all the back in 1965. Aside from being a gorgeous piece of retro tech, it’s also one of several NASA-owned cameras from the estate of collector Arthur Keir that have been put up for auction. Read More

    The Olympus E-PL3: DSLR Power In A Point-And-Shoot Package

    Short Version
    It’s hard to recommend the E-PL3 over the more powerful and touchscreen-capable E-P3 but if you’re in the market for a much more compact micro 4/3s shooter and you can survive without a built-in flash, this may be the camera for you. Read More

  • Sony Cybershot TX55 Shoots HD Video And 12-Megapixel Stills, At The Same Time

    Sony Cybershot TX55 Shoots HD Video And 12-Megapixel Stills, At The Same Time

    Although I’ve never been a huge fan of the Cybershot line, it’s interesting to see how much tech Sony has been dumping into these things of late. For example, this $350 camera shoots full 1080i video and 12-megapixel stills at exactly the same time with no interruption. It has 5X optical zoom and some sort of 16-megapixel 10X digital zoom and can also shoot in 3D. Panoramas are… Read More

    The Olympus PEN E-P3: Making Cameras Fun Again

    Short Version
    As a long-time fan of Olympus’ Micro 4/3s series of cameras, I came to the E-P3 expecting good things. I was not disappointed. The camera is like Mini Cooper or a Smart car: it gets you where you need to go, you have fun on the way, and the resulting savings in size, bulk, and, in some ways, price makes it a great second camera for a DSLR buff or a great first camera… Read More

  • DIY Instant Camera, But Not The Kind You're Imagining

    If you’ve been wildly despondent at the death of the Polaroid, there is still hope. This DIY “instant camera” by Niklas Roy uses a simple digital camera and printer to take and print images. Here’s the bad part: the camera has no memory so it prints out the image in front of it line by line for a process that takes three minutes total. That means you have to sit… Read More
