As a photographer, it’s easy to get caught up in the quality of your gear. Are you outfitted with a high resolution, full-frame sensor? At what f-stop does the MTF curve of your lens peak? Can you record noise-free images at high ISO levels? How many RAW shots can your camera take before the buffer fills?

Cameras For Your Kids

Put a camera into a child's hands, and you may be surprised with the results. Kids are adventerous, and love to play with cameras. Fortunately, you don't have to be afraid of them dropping the more-expensive family camera—there are some made just for them! Here are a couple of snap shooters that were designed for your children.

Lomography Spinner: 360° Panoramas for the Masses

Taking 360° panoramic pictures used to be the domain of those wealthy enough to afford the exotic cameras that took these dramatic images. Not anymore. What was once the domain of the well heeled is now the domain of the high heeled and flip-flop crowd. Now anybody with $134.95 and a few rolls of film in the fridge can be counted among the hoitiest and toitiest landscape shooters.

Going Lomographic

In a world of photo gear that's becoming increasingly smaller, smarter, quicker, sleeker and oh-so-techier, it's kind of refreshing to review a line of cameras that are mechanical, don't require calculators to figure "effective focal lengths," are made out of plastic (and wouldn't be authentic if made of anything other than plastic), have lenses that contain nary a single aspheric surface and are guaranteed to break through the veneer of your grumpiest, stiff-necked relatives. They go under a class of photographica called Lomography cameras, and we've got them in all shapes, colors and sizes.
