We all have times when we want to just pull out  a camera, point and shoot—and share on the web. Maybe it will be the 4th generation iPod touch. Or is it just your smartphone? There is something just so convenient about taking out a camera like the Samsung ST80 and being able to upload straight to Facebook. Polaroid allowed us to instantly share our memories years ago—what do you use now?

"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.

Have you ever looked into a surveillance camera and wondered who was watching you? Well, even if you haven't, you should know that the camera mounted to the ceiling may well be a dummy. In fact, we carry loads of dummy surveillance cameras designed to deter would-be intruders by giving the feeling that they are being watched. This is a great item for mom-and-pop stores on a budget, families with concerns about trespassers, schools with concerns about delinquent behavior, and more.

Who Knew is an ongoing weekly series featuring some of the items that you wouldn't typically find in your average camera store. But then again, we're not your typical camera store.

While a photographer's vision comes first, there are many creatives that prefer to just use one camera and one lens. The reason for this varies greatly: maybe the combo helps them get most of their work done, or maybe they love the way the two work together.

Lensbabies are often used for extra creativity in images because of the tilt-shift effect that they mimic. Creatvity is the lifeblood of many photographers and exploring new methods keep the juices flowing. So when I was loaned a lensbaby composer for the Micro Four Thirds mount, I immediately tried to figure out how I'd use it creatively and differently from the images already on the internet.

One of the reasons people get blurry images with their point-and-shoot camera is because of camera shake. This happens when the camera isn't held very steady, causing trailing in the image. Granted, there are other reasons—such as misfocusing—but browse through the images of many of your friends on Facebook and you'll see that lots of them are blurry due to camera shake. Here are a few pointers that we would like to share with you.

Nostalgia—that's the word that will come to the minds of many photographers when they hold the Fujifilm X100 digital camera. I've spent lots of time with it by my side as a constant companion, and the little camera has grown on me tremendously. At the moment, these cameras are a bit hard to get your hands on, due to the unfortunate occurrences in Japan. However, it's a small but powerful camera that is worth taking a look at.

Is your SD card waterproof? When browsing the websites of some manufacturers, I stumbled upon claims that their SD cards are tested to be waterproof. I decided to put a couple of my very own SD cards to the test to see what would happen if my precious memory was dropped in water and all washed up. The results may surprise you.
