Image stabilization (IS) is a terrific technology for better ensuring sharp photographs taken under less than desirable lighting conditions, especially when shooting with a slower aperture lens, which includes almost every kit zoom lens.

This all depends on what type of lighting system you currently own. If you are shooting with tungsten or other form of continuous lighting, you’re in the game. If you’re shooting with electronic flash, the news isn’t as good unless you plan on shooting video one frame at a time. Strobes are simply the wrong tools for capturing video.

Back in the 1960s there was a car called the Amphicar, which as its name suggested, was a car and a boat, depending on whether you were tooling up the boulevard or up the canal. Though it was designed and manufactured in Germany, the engine and electrical system of these four-seater convertibles was English, which in itself should have served as a red flag for anyone considering one.

So you’re going on a photo shoot, maybe even shoot some video. Presumably you’re bringing at least one camera, some memory cards and maybe some extra lenses and a tripod. But what other items might be useful?

If you take a lot of pictures or shoot a lot of video, there will come a time when you will have to use your camera in the rain, though probably not by choice. Perhaps you’ll be on an assignment that can’t be rescheduled, or maybe touring an attraction that you won’t be revisiting. Mother Nature doesn’t plan the weather around your schedule, so it’s going to be raining.

Enough about Angry Birds already!  Real birds don’t strap themselves into slingshots, as any birdwatcher, a.k.a. birder, will tell you. They know because they observe the chirpy critters in the wild or in urban parks. They spy on flocks through binoculars. They snap pictures; they take notes. High-tech birders can think of better uses for their mobile screens than playing games.

The monitors built into digital cameras and camcorders have been improved dramatically. Some are now more than three inches in size. But that’s still too small for most professionals, so they use camera-top field monitors to judge the quality of high-resolution digital stills and HD video. The Marshall V-LCD70XP-HDMIPT is a 7-inch field monitor loaded with new features such as HDMI Loop-Through and DSLR Ratio Adjustment.

If you ask a photographer if they can recommend an easy to use, entry-level DSLR that can shoot stills, HD video and offers an impressive list of pro-level features, there’s an excellent chance that they'll name Canon’s EOS Rebel.
