With the introduction of the SLT-A77 and SLT-A65, Sony is making it perfectly clear they are proceeding full speed ahead with the fixed, translucent mirror technology cameras introduced last year. The top gun of the two new DSLRs is the Sony alpha SLT-A77, which in addition to a hefty, weather resistant, magnesium-alloy body, features an all-new 24.5MP APS-C CMOS sensor, making it the highest-resolution DSLR among APS-C format DSLRs.

Sony’s new alpha SLT-A65 looks remarkably similar to Sony’s first-generation fixed translucent mirror cameras, the SLT-A33 and SLT-A55, but in addition to a number of small and not-so-small improvements found on the new camera is the very same all-new 24.5MP APS-C CMOS sensor found in Sony’s flagship SLT-A77.

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.

In the summer of 2008, Nikon released the D90, a DSLR with an extra feature: HD video recording. It rocked the digital photography and video worlds. Suddenly photographers could shoot dynamite video and videographers could get the look and feel of a cinema camera without the cinema camera price tag. HD video quickly became the feature to look for in a DSLR. A new category of camera was born: the HDSLR.

We should begin this treatise by clearly stating that the Sunny 16 rule is nothing new, and if anything it’s a formula that’s been kicking around since the early days of picture taking. It’s also worth noting that the Sunny 16 rule has held true through every technological breakthrough from tinplates straight through modern-day digital imaging.

Setting the white balance of your camera correctly basically boils down to a couple-or-three clicks through your camera’s set-up menu and a few moments of your time. Depending on your needs or mindset, you can adjust your camera’s WB settings by dialing in a specific Kelvin rating (°K) or by adjusting the Scene Mode.

Medical photography often involves taking pictures of small, hard-to-access subject matter, most often in equally small and hard-to-access places. Add to the equation the subject matter of these pictures is usually inside a living, breathing person (or animal) and suddenly you realize how precise and demanding this specialized slice of the photo market can be.

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.
