When it's time to buy new gear, we usually need to seek out options that offer the best bang for the buck. In the process of doing so, we're forced to suppress our deep desire for the gear that provides the loudest bang. We've rounded up of some highest-ticket items sold at the B&H SuperStore, so we could fantasize about clicking the Checkout button with the confidence of a newly-minted billionaire.

Tips and Solutions

Hi there! My name is Steve Huff and this is my very first post to the B&H Insights blog. While usually busy running my own photo site at stevehuffphoto.com, I am happy to announce that I will also be writing articles right here for B&H Photo.

I have been a passionate photographer for 15 years and in that time I have shot with, owned, or tested almost every digital camera ever made. Today I shoot with Leica and in future posts I will explain why I do, and also try to share my thoughts on Leica cameras in general like what makes them so unique and why they are so crazy expensive!

Buying Guide

Zoom lenses have become increasingly popular over the years for a number of reasons, including convenience (less lost time swapping lenses and in turn less chance of getting dust on the camera sensor and/or missing the shot altogether), weight (one slightlier heavier zoom can replace two or three slightly lighter but collectively heavier lenses) and slimmer camera bags (have you flown with carry-on baggage lately?).

Hands-on Review

Hello, B&H Insights readers! I am back again today to talk about a new Leica compact camera that has been garnering a great deal of attention across the Internet for the past few weeks. The new Leica V-Lux 20 is a compact camera with some new and convenient features, and I have had the pleasure of testing it out for the past couple of days.

When Steve Jobs introduced the new iPhone 4 at the recent WWDC10 Conference, he described the latest iPhone incarnation as being "… the most precise thing we've ever made. There is glass on front and the backside and it has stainless steel around it. Its closest kin is a beautiful old Leica camera." That’s a pretty heady statement from an equally heady mover and shaker. But iconic referencing aside, how true is this statement?

Buying Guide

A professional photographer is someone who can take a photograph that's technically and aesthetically right on the money with even the most basic of imaging tools, though few, if any, would bet their reputations on entry-level cameras on a regular basis. That's because as feature-packed as under-$500 cameras are, they're simply not up to taking the pounding pro-quality DSLRs are subjected to on a daily basis. But ruggedness is only part of the equation when it comes to the top guns of DSLR cameras.

Buying Guide

Professionals tend to expect more from the tools they use. They expect them to perform reliably, accurately and smoothly on good days and bad. On top of all that, they expect their tools to feel proper, secure and "right" in the hand. And these very same folk often have the same expectations when it comes to pedestrian items. We'd like to talk about a half-dozen point-and-shoot digital cameras that should appeal to serious-minded shooters seeking a pocket-sized camera that feels and performs like a "real" camera.

Why be a fly on the wall at an event or wedding, when you can be a ninja? There are many photographers that love to be stealthy in their own ways. If you'd like to learn the ways of the ninja photographer, then check out these cameras to help you get started.

My first encounter with the legendary Leica Noctilux was about ten years ago, when one of my good friends returned from a holiday in Switzerland with his new Leica M6 and an assortment of Leica lenses—all given to him by his grandfather! Yes, GIVEN! And among those lenses was the Leitz Noctilux f1. I remember seeing those first images Michael shot on his new M6, wide open, with the Noctilux, and I remember thinking, "My goodness, I couldn't care less if there's no actual point of focus in the image!" The way that Noctilux rendered was just breathtaking.
