To my astonishment and delight, a truly innovative digital device recently hit the consumer market, and it did so about as quietly as a snowflake landing on cotton. No show-stopping CES announcement. No TV spot during the Super Bowl.

The Pentax MX-1 is a vintage style, though fully modern, point-and-shoot camera with a 12MP sensor that's relatively large  at 1/1.7". Its built-in lens zooms across a 35mm equivalent focal-length range of 28-112mm. Kelby Media's Larry Becker finds a lot to like about the MX-1 in this hands-on review.

When photographing a wedding, a variety of lens focal lengths is essential to "get the shot" from different vantage points and in different scales and compositions. Zoom lenses make this task a bit easier, due to their coverage of numerous focal lengths in a single lens barrel. A macro lens can also serve as an ideal prime portrait lens. Tamron’s recent additions to their lens lineup meet these needs.

No matter whom you invite to your wedding, it’s almost guaranteed that at least one—if not several—Apple iPhones will show up.

The Fujifilm X-E1 is a well designed, retro-styled mirrorless camera that follows on the heels of the extremely popular X-Pro1 model. This is a little sibling of that camera and, although it has an electronic viewfinder rather than the X-Pro 1's optical piece, the X-E1 shares the 16.3 APS-C sensor and the Fujifilm X mount of the X-Pro1.

The LCD screen on most DSLR cameras doesn’t exceed 3.2” in size, which is a pretty tight space in which to judge the quality of your work. However, if you shoot near an Apple iPad, or a Mac computer, a new product called the iUSBportCAMERA makes it possible to instantly send your images wirelessly to their screens.
