Memory card maker SanDisk has begun shipping a 32-Gigabyte microSDHC card, which the company claims to be the highest-capacity card available in a form factor so tiny that it fits on a dime. The card's storage is double the capacity of SanDisk's 16GB microSDHC version. The 32GB card comes with a 5-year limited warranty and will carry a suggested retail price of $199.99. It is expected to be available from B&H in April.

I'm always on the lookout for digicams that stand out from the crowd, and considering how crowded the marketplace is, most digicams tend to blend into the masses rather than stand out. An exception to this sad situation is Nikon's CoolPix S8000, a little hottie I've had an opportunity to tool around with for the past week or so. Clad in a brushed - but not brash-looking - red aluminum housing, the S8000 passes muster on several counts. First off, the camera features a 5.4 - 54mm/3.5-5.6 ED VR zoom lens that takes in the equivalent field-of-view of a 30-300mm lens.  Anybody looking for a good pocket-sized travel camera?

Though solid-state memory rules today, it wasn’t always that way. Removable discs for audio recorders and electronic still cameras were state-of-the-art during the decade before last. Such legacy technologies often go the way of the dodo bird, but if you thought you had to travel to Japan to scratch your ancient itch, guess again. B&H continues to offer MiniDisc devices including the portable Sony MZ-M200 Hi-MD Recorder, two Tascam rack-mount models, and MiniDisc media.

On March 16th, 2010, Charles Moore, one of the giants of photojournalism’s golden age, passed away at the age of 79. Moore, who earned his stripes in the battlefield of the 1960’s civil rights movement, has been long-recognized as the photographer whose startling, 'you-are-there' imagery jumped off the pages of Life magazine and influenced not only public opinion, but the thoughts and opinion of the champion of the 1964 Civil Rights Bill, President Johnson.

Mother’s Day is coming, and there’s not much time left to get your mom that perfect gift. You could always pick up some flowers or candy, but you’ve probably given her countless bouquets and sweets over the years, so that wouldn’t be much of a surprise, would it?

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1 is one of the most versatile compact digital cameras on the market. Is it two video cameras in one with dual independent lenses? A 3D video camera? A 3D still camera? An HD video camera that captures high-resolution still images simultaneously? Yes, yes, yes and yes.

I’ve been a fan of pocket-size cameras since they passed the six-megapixel mark some years ago. Since then point-and-shoot digital cameras have become progressively better with every round of upgrades.

While walking to Photo East 2009, I noticed a small yellow bird sitting on the sidewalk. It had apparently flown into the building and was waiting for the bells to stop ringing as legions of camera-laden pedestrians marched by. I coaxed it onto my finger and lifted it to eye level. Now get this; I’m standing in mid-town Manhattan with a yellow bird on my finger… and nobody noticed. I mean nobody.

For many of us, our first foray into photography involved black and white film. It was readily available, and cheaper to process than color. Also, you could easily set up a home darkroom to process black and white film and prints. Color processing wasn’t for the average home user, due to its complex requirements for temperature control and chemicals.
