A Kodak Moment: a rare, one-time moment that is captured by a picture, or should have been captured by a picture
We all had them: times you reached for a camera to stop life for a second, to grab a memory. For decades, Kodak was the rock solid standard in photography and as the 131-year old company files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, “Kodak moments” may be all that’s left of what was… → Read More

Time published a bunch of info about Fujifilm’s upcoming 3D consumer camera system early last week. The mag talked about how how the FinePix Real 3D W1 the next best thing, which I claimed was doubtful considering its price, but one small detail was left out: this camera can also record 3D movies. That’s sweet.
Update: More pics of the camera and system after the jump. → Read More
So here’s a pretty easy contest for anyone living in or around Brooklyn, NY. Online invitation purveyor pingg (akin to evite, but way cooler) is currently seeking submissions for their Brooklyn-themed photography gallery. The finalists from the submissions will have their work showcased in a Designer Series gallery that’s dedicated to Brooklyn. So what does that mean for you? → Read More
My initial impression is that picture quality is very sharp, but it gets a bit noisy at higher ISO settings. What do you photogs think?
Update: Here’s a little commentary from my brother based on… → Read More
Man alive! You think the American economy is in rough shape? Japan’s economy shrank 12.7 percent from October to December of last year, the sharpest fall since the end of World War II. Combine that with the unusually strong Japanese Yen, which makes Japanese products, like the new Fuji FinePix Z30, FinePix J20fd and J250, more expensive in foreign (non-Japanese) markets, and you’ll get a sense of… → Read More

Fuji’s highly anticipated follow up to the F30, the F200EXR, is available now for pre-order from Amazon. Sure, it’s a $400 point and shoot, but if it’s even marginally better than the F30 then we’re all in for a treat. Check out test shots here. Ideally, we’d really like to see these sample images at 100 percent with crops at ISO 800 and 1600 to see what it’s really capable of. But until we have… → Read More

So this is your first year of real independence and trust me, you’ll want to document every possible thing. That’s probably one thing I failed to do during my collegiate days. Girls making out and possibly showing you their hooha’s are something you’ll want to hold onto while at college. You never know when you’re going to need to blackmail said hooha to get test answers. And I know some… → Read More

While it doesn’t have the DSLR’s action, it promises to take better photos than most other digitals due to… → Read More
Coming out strong for Fuji in the prosumer tier is the FinePix S100FS. It’s pretty much the best of both worlds, in terms of point-and-shoot and DSLR hybrids go. I’m personally not a big fan of these hybrid types, but this one certainly has me interested. It packs an 11-megapixel CCD sensor with 14.3x manual zoom, RP III processor, 2.5-inch tiltable LCD and does some funky sensitivity… → Read More

The camera also has a 3x optical zoom, a 2.5-inch LCD, and 30 FPS video capture. Nothing extraordinary except for the facial… → Read More
