Hands-on Review

Professional videographers expect a certain level of quality and an advanced feature set in the equipment they use. In other words, professional videographers rely on professional equipment to produce professional-quality work. Unfortunately, such equipment is usually larger and heavier than they would like. Canon has addressed this problem with its new and compact XA10 professional camcorder.

Since their debut back in 2002, Hasselblad H-series cameras have set a standard in SLR technology that remains a benchmark to this very day. Unlike many products in which form follows function, when describing Hasselblad H cameras it’s not a stretch to say “form equals function.”

Why pay more for quality FireWire cables now that Pearstone has rolled out a full selection of 4-, 6- and 9-pin cables in various lengths?

The trouble with projectors is that their mercury lamps burn out after 2,000 to 5,000 hours and cost hundreds of dollars to replace. Casio has a better idea—projectors that incorporate a hybrid light source comprised of LEDs and lasers and a novel way to mix primary colors. The result is the Green Slim line of DLP-based models that run for 20,000 hours—illumination for the life of the projector.

The good news about your DSLR's pop-up flash is that it's right there whenever you need it.

Just as image stabilization can make the difference between a sharp handheld picture and a blurry handheld picture, remote controls can make the difference between sharp and not-so-sharp pictures taken with a tripod-mounted camera. And that's because even if your tripod weighs more than your neighbor's Great Dane, manually pressing the shutter button can makes things move and things that move can easily result in shaky-looking pictures.
