Standing out from the crowd has long been a challenge in the camera biz, and considering how much technological cross-pollinating there is nowadays among camera manufacturers, making headlines ain’t so easy.

Super zooms, a breed of cameras that bridge the gap between pocket sized point-and-shoot digicams and far more able DSLRs, have a lot going for them if your idea of the perfect camera is one that offers a ridiculously broad focal range, pro-style functionality with a comfortable form factor that’s small enough (3.3 x 4.6 x 4.1”) and light enough (17.5 oz) to pack along no matter where you’re going.

Medical photography often involves taking pictures of small, hard-to-access subject matter, most often in equally small and hard-to-access places.

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.

Show me a business without a copy machine and I'll show you a seven-year-old kid with a lemonade stand. And despite the prediction that computers will do away with the need for paper copies, the opposite seems to be overwhelmingly true.
