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.

If you take a lot of pictures or shoot a lot of video, there will come a time when you will have to use your camera in the rain, though probably not by choice. Perhaps you’ll be on an assignment that can’t be rescheduled, or maybe touring an attraction that you won’t be revisiting. Mother Nature doesn’t plan the weather around your schedule, so it’s going to be raining.

Sometimes you want the signal from a source component to travel through an intermediary component without alteration. Thus, when a home theater or handheld electronics product is described as having pass-through capability, it means that the audio or video can exit exactly as it entered.

Besides Moshe Zusman's tips for online marketing, you should consider other ways to ensure that you—and others—will be able to track your photos online. At the same time, you must pay heed to copyrighting your photos. It's not all about watermarking either. Here are some tips on how I do it in Lightroom 3.

Hands-on Review

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.

Did you know that we sell Opera Glasses? We often speak about the more popular items here at the store (like cameras), but what need would you have for Opera Glasses? Think of them as really nice-looking binoculars, with a fairly wide field of view. Some have very interesting features like a red light for reading Playbills up close, while others include handles. Why not take them to your local theater production, or to Broadway—if you're in NYC and paying the SuperStore a visit?

This is part of an on-going series showcasing items that you wouldn't typically associate with your average camera store. But then again, we're not your typical camera store. You can take a look at some of our previous postings on clothespins, game show buzzers, Jellyfish Effect LED lights, breakaway beer bottles, speakers for pools and loads more.

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.

What the original Sony Walkman and iPod have in common is that they both necessitated and popularized the use of headphones and earphones. While all current models come with decent headphones, it’s not uncommon for some users to invest a lot of money in high-end aftermarket headphones. But no matter how expensive the headphones, sometimes the cord isn’t long enough.

Have you looked at your keyboard lately—not just a glance, but a detailed inspection? Probably you didn’t, because if you did, you’d realize how filthy it is. That is, unless you clean it regularly. But most people don’t. The nature of a keyboard is such that it’s a dirt trap. The recessed area where the keys sit is an invitation for dust, grime, crumbs, hairs, nail clippings and other detritus to accumulate.

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.

There are times when it helps to have a tripod. When it’s getting dark out, or when you’re using a telephoto lens, sometimes you need a tripod to help steady the shot. The problem is that you have to have a tripod with you in order to use it, so you have to carry it, and tripods can be heavy. Here’s a way to build a string tripod that will fit in your pants pocket or in a pocket of your camera... READ MORE
