Outstanding Holiday Camera Deals

Here at B&H, we're steeped in the latest camera technology and products. With the holidays quickly approaching, we have culled many of our favorites to save you the time it would take to pore over dozens of pages of specs and features. Our commitment to provide you with the best in customer service has produced lists of suggestions like the one that follows.

Video Gadgets and Tools that are not Toys

As far as shooting goes, there may be nothing more satisfying than getting the shot you want, or getting that image or camera move exactly the way you see it in your mind. Conversely, there may be nothing as disappointing as coming close to your shot, but just not nailing it. This could be caused by any number of factors, but in the end it feels like expecting ice cream, only to bite into shaving cream instead.

Advanced Compact Cameras

The compact point-and-shoots of yesterday have long since been replaced by the smart devices of today. In an ever-changing digital landscape, evolution is a necessity and the latest compacts are better than ever. Regardless of your skill level, these digital cameras have got you covered.

The Photo Landscape, 2013

Over the course of 2013, the photographic-technology landscape has certainly held its fair share of innovations, updates, new releases, and refinements, with manufacturers pushing to meet certain contemporary image-making goals as well as working to draft the blueprint of what to expect in subsequent years.

Perspective Control and Tilt-Shift Lenses

In recent years, perspective manipulation has seen a surge in popularity throughout the photography community. Whether it is the eccentricity of miniature-faking, or the dreamy elegance of selective blur, tilt-shift lenses have undoubtedly solidified their place on many contemporary photographers’ to-buy lists.

Firmware Update Version 2.0 for Canon EOS 1D X

Although it won’t be available until January, 2014, Canon’s recent announcement of Firmware Update Version 2.0 for the EOS-1D X camera means that their flagship DSLR’s functionality is about to be elevated to new heights.

Long-Distance Providers: Long Zoom Cameras of 2013

The emergence of long zoom cameras as a legitimate multi-purpose digital camera option continued in 2013. Bridging the divide between conventional point-and-shoot and DSLR cameras, these compact cameras offer portability similar to their mirrorless cousins with more novice-friendly interfaces than advanced interchangeable-lens cameras.

Cameras of the Year

Every year a series of "revolutionary" and "game-changing" cameras are released into the market. They included amazing high-resolution sensors, new professional-grade cameras, and slim new mirrorless designs in 2012. So what could possibly change in just one year?

A lot.

Tough Territory Calls for Tough Cameras

I love tough cameras. Nowadays so much sophisticated, high-tech finery is protected by a thin plastic casing and when that casing breaks—and it will—the whole system risks collapse. “Tough" cameras fly in the face of adversity and have earned a category unto themselves with a simple and befitting name to match.
