Hands-on Review

People love National Geographic magazine, the TV specials on PBS and the many different TV programs on the National Geographic Channel for the fabulous photography and videography. Perhaps, if you carry your gear in a National Geographic camera bag, a bit of that National Geographic perfection will shine through in your own work.

Flip Video has unveiled its fall line of UltraHD and MinoHD pocket camcorders. Most models now have built-in image stabilization and capture video at 720p/60 frames per second. The UltraHD 2-hour version (black or white) debuts the FlipPort, a proprietary connector that can be plugged into specially designed accessories including external microphones (wired or wireless) for audio pickup close to the subject and external batteries for extra power.

More and more people are creating more and more digital content, and editing and storing that content on their notebook computers. With all the HD camcorders and digital cameras in use, there’s just so much content to share. Instead of viewing it on a small notebook computer screen, Intel’s new Wireless Display Technology, or WiDi, lets you display contents from your hard disk, home network or Web browser on your big-screen TV.

Tips and Solutions

A flat-panel TV can be so seductive that the buyer is blinded to the practicality of where to put it.  So, why not a multi-shelf A/V rack? Z-Line provides two types: tabletops (left) that lend support via the set's built-in pedestal, and rear risers that let you hang the set without breaching a wall. Z-Line forges metal frames and safety glass in sleek designs that enable your components to stand and deliver.

There is no doubt about it; India is a photographer’s carnival. The colors are kaleidoscopic; the scenes are cinematic; and the light is luminous. I’ve been traveling to Rajasthan for the past few years to lead the National Geographic Expeditions India Photo Tour—a tour that has focused on light and lighting.

Though video capture has become a standard feature in many DSLRs, capturing decent video remains elusive to many newbies simply because shooting video requires more thought and practice than shooting stills. A key to successful  video capture is a proper support system.

When is less more? When you remove an overlay that's causing excessive glare and diminished touch-screen responsiveness. Not only has Sony made its e-readers better by stripping away a millimeter of screen depth, it's now incorporating infrared sensors to detect finger position and execute commands.

Lots of great new prosumer cameras have been announced recently, and if you thought you had settled on the one to buy, think again—it's time to add the new Canon PowerShot G12 to your short list. Had you decided to buy a Canon G11, but haven’t yet made the purchase? You're in luck, because Canon took the already fabulous G11, polished it just a bit and announced the new PowerShot G12.

 I have been using Kata bags for a while now. To haul my lighting gear, I was using the Kata OC-88. However, I found that it wasn't quite long enough to fit light stands or a portable backdrop. So, my photographer-husband, Andy Dunaway, did some research and found a good fit for me - the Kata OC-97. It's long enough to fit two of my Manfrotto Stacker Light Stands, an Elinchrom Rotalux softbox, an Elinchrom Quadra Ranger pro set, some Lastolite Tri-grips, five Nikon SB-900's and more.

School started last week in the New York area. That means lots of people, students and teachers alike, are in the market for new notebook computers. Fujitsu’s product lineup is so comprehensive, there’s a model that suits everyone’s needs. I’m going to go over some of Fujitsu’s lineup and, in the spirit of how kids are lined up in school—at least when I went—I’ll cover these portable computers in size order.
