It wouldn't be wrong to say many of today's pro, full frame 35mm-based DSLRs capture image files that rival or surpass the quality of medium-format film cameras. As for medium-format digital cameras... they've come quite a ways too. They've become quicker, more nimble and the image quality of the higher-res capture backs now approaches the image quality of larger-format  film cameras, which brings us to the Mamiya 645DF.

The bad news is the light it produces is harsh, prone to weird shadows and red eye and seldom—if ever—flattering.

Remember when you took it out of the box for the first time, and realized that you and that lens just bonded? Perhaps you loved the feel of it in your hands, or how the different rings on it turned.

Sony seems to have a thing about constantly trying to improve upon their existing product line, and their successful Alpha line of DSLRs is no exception. The newest Alpha updates are the Alpha a290 and Alpha a390, which, due in great part to feedback from current Alpha owners, feel better in the hand—thanks to improved grip design. As a bonus, both cameras also feature the same 14.2MP CCD formerly found in the Alpha a380.

It all began in the back seat of my grandparents’ car when I was seven years old. While riding with my entourage of stuffed animals, I became inspired to use my very first camera, a hot pink Kodak 110 Instamatic. During the short duration of the trip, I used an entire roll of film to photograph my furry friends.

"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.
