Nowadays thanks to the age of digital cameras, there’s really no need to use a Polaroid camera anymore unless you prefer having a hard copy of your photograph. It looks like Polaroid has caught up with the times not only with their digital cameras, […]
07/22/2011, With mirrorless cameras now supporting the ability to have interchangeable lenses, which seem to largely appeal to the prosumer market, it wouldn’t exactly be a surprise to see big camera companies such as Nikon or Canon to start venturing down that road.

07/08/2011, Cameras on phones have come a long way since they were first introduced; from being able to capture photos in VGA to a whopping 8 megapixels that we are starting to see in some of the newer smartphones today.

07/06/2011, So you’ve just bought yourself a brand new camera, or perhaps it was given to you as a gift, but like all budding amateur photographers, the dials, the numbers and the deep menus will probably confuse you quite a bit.

07/05/2011, Iceland has a pop star, Kali, who like Lady Gaga, is known for her outrageous costumes, so instead of dressing up in dress that has been made out of meat, she has instead decided to put on a dress that is not only less of an eye-sore, but is also composed out of QR codes, which she claims will allow fans to better connect with her. Kali had designer Thorunn […]
06/28/2011, Cameras have evolved throughout the years, as most technology does. Externally however, camera design has not really been that radical, unlike the technology used inside the cameras, which have come a long way from its humble beginnings. If you take a look at DSLR and compact cameras, you realize that throughout the years, the changes have not really been radical, perhaps new colors, more curved edges, smaller and more compact. […]

The Lytro is a camera that seeks to change […]

06/17/2011, UV lens filters were designed to reduce haziness in photos that is generated by the ultraviolet light, sometimes creating a “warmer” photo and in some instances protecting the lens from grubby fingers and accidental knocks. So ever wonder what 50 UV lenses would produce if you stacked them all together? Well the folks down at LensRental one day decided that they should take all the UV lens filters that they […]
03/28/2011, For those of you who were hoping to watch 3D footage from NASA’s Mars expedition later this year, you’re out of luck. NASA announced that they have ditched the plans to include 3D cameras on the Mars rover, Curiosity.

02/21/2011, Samsung is launching five new lenses for its NX Series of mirror-less cameras, porting the number of lenses to 10 for that system. The lenses also feature Samsung’s i-Function that lets the user use one physical control (a ring on the lens) to tweak various parameters of the camera. There’s something for everyone.
