Entry-Level Cameras

The interesting thing about entry level point-and-shoot digicams is that the simplest, least expensive of the lot is capable of taking wonderfully sharp, angst-free photographs. The costlier, more "'complicated" digicams can perform more "tricks" or have wider or longer lenses  than entry-level digicams, but at the end of the day, each of these econo-cams capture surprisingly fine stills and video.

Entry-Level DSLR

In the process of trying to organize the dozens of DSLRs we sell at B&H into their respective price and performance categories for our 2010 Holiday DSLR roundup, it was impossible to not notice how much bang you get for your hard-earned bucks these days—and in a choice of formats and colors, no less.

PTZ Cams: Not Just for Surveillance

You’ve seen them, but maybe you’re not quite sure what they are. Often encased in domes, PTZ or Pan Tilt Zoom cameras, are cameras that can be panned, tilted and zoomed remotely. You’ll see them mounted on the ceilings of department stores and other locations where someone wants to keep an eye on things. But they can be used for a lot more than simple surveillance.

 

Five New Digicams from Panasonic

It might be in the 90s outside, but that didn't stop Panasonic from releasing two new superzoom digicams and three new pocket-sized digicams, all scheduled to hit the shelves at about the same time we head back to school and start ramping up for the holidays (yes... the holidays!).
