Oben Entry-Level Tripods with Heads

Oben’s 1300/1400 line of lightweight aluminum tripods is entry-level in name only. Their high degree of performance owes both to the quality of the materials and to the array of professional features that Oben has packed into these steadfast, yet lightweight, aluminum camera supports.

"Get a 50mm lens." That is a statement that many photographers will tell you. But do they mean a 50mm lens or the equivalent of a 50mm lens on your camera? Make no mistake, a 50mm lens is a 50mm lens, but sensors have magnification and crop factors depending on your camera model.

In this edition of Meet B&H, we visit the Used Department of the store. The Used Department contains loads of older cameras (both film and digital) and collectibles on display and in the back stock room. Located on the second floor of the store, it often contains some interesting finds, like old Canon 7 rangefinders, rare lenses, camcorders, lights, bags, etc. In addition to used gear, there are also refurbished products that are restored to original manufacturer specs—just like new!

When people sell or trade in their gear, it ends up in the Used Department. For those starting out in any medium (photo, video, audio, computing, etc.) or just want to save money by purchasing older equipment, feast your eyes on the Used section.

As photographers, we often say, “It’s all about the light,” and of course, we understand what that means. A photograph isn’t possible without light. What make a great photograph is great light, and the quality of the light...or is it? Is it really about great shadow?

Digital technology has profoundly changed the way we create and experience photography. No one knows that better than the artist John Paul Caponigro, who combines his background in painting with traditional and alternative photographic processes. Exhibited internationally, his work has been purchased by numerous private and public collections. Caponigro's primary focus is the natural world, and many viewers find his work deeply spiritual. B&H sat down with Caponigro recently for this exclusive interview.

On a shelf above my desk sits an enormous binder full of 35mm slides, neatly stored in sleeves. These slides aren’t my work though. And it isn’t the work of anyone I know.

Dateline Monday, March 8th, 2010 - If you live in the Northeast portion of the States you hopefully took advantage of this past weekend’s 50 and 60° temperatures. After umpteen weekends of digging out driveways and bundling downed branches for pick-up by the municipal compost authorities, it was nice to pull my old Schwinn (1947) out of the garage and take it for a spin in the park. And in case you haven’t noticed, Spring 2010 is making its debut as you read these words, though in some ways it never really left.

Buying Guide

The interesting thing about entry level point-and-shoot digicams is that the simplest, least expensive of the lot is capable of taking wonderfully sharp, angst-free photographs. The costlier, more "'complicated" digicams can perform more "tricks" or have wider or longer lenses  than entry-level digicams, but at the end of the day, each of these econo-cams capture surprisingly fine stills and video.
