  • Travel Photo Guides: an app to help you take great photos in our national parks

    I’m a pretty terrible photographer. My DSLR camera is definitely smarter than me, and the photos it takes on full-auto are almost always better than those I get when I fiddle around in manual mode. Still, I can’t help but feel envious when I look at professional photos and realize that I could take photos that good if only I had a little nudge in the right direction. If… Read More

  • Photochaining: Spread the photo love

    Photochaining is the latest fad to sweep the nation – and other nations – and it’s really easy and fun. You buy a cheap memory card, put it in your camera, take some pictures with it, and then “name” the card and leave a note telling someone else to take a picture and leave it somewhere else. The results are then posted to Photochaining.com and world peace ensues. Read More

  • Sony releasing 12-megapixel CMOS sensor in March

    Starting in March of next year, Sony will be pushing out cell phone CMOS sensors in excess of 12 megapixels. While my initial reaction would be to bring up the fact that more megapixels doesn’t necessarily equal better image quality, it looks like Sony will be using these "Exmor" sensors in not only cell phones, but "digital SLR cameras and high definition digital… Read More

The HD-0310, as it’s called… Read More
