Like many wildlife photographers, I'll go almost anywhere in search of an image. From Alaska to Florida, there are very few places I won't travel to in search of the next great photo.

But when travel includes a flight, that raises the question of how to get my gear to the shoot.

In Allan Weitz's recent hands-on review of Sony's new NEX-series digicams, he made mention of how due to an oddity in the camera's playback sequencing, he thought a co-worker had inadvertently erased a morning's worth of still images. Luckily, the 'missing' images were safe and sound, but it reminded me of the time I spent a whole day shooting snapshots at ISO 3200 on a bright, sunny day. (Ouch!)

The Nikon's D300s is an update of the company's popular D300 digital SLR camera, and like its predecessor, the D300s contains a self-cleaning 12.3Mp DX-format CMOS sensor, a dynamic 51-point Multi-CAM3500 autofocus system, and an EXPEED image processor. It is also notably faster and shoots 720p high-definition video. Wait one minute. Is that an arched eyebrow we detect?

Photographers are always looking for subjects, and in so doing, often choose the street. As Dorothy Norman said, "You don’t have to go fifty feet from your house to find a photograph." While Street Photography can be practiced anywhere, New York City in particular is a place that lends itself to the art (after all, our sidewalks are 18% gray!)

There is an old chestnut that goes "there's a first time for everything;" this review takes that notion and squares it. After scouring our archive of B&H newsletters, I think this will be the first dedicated review of a DVD we have produced. B&H stocks a large selection of tutorial videos, software, and books; frankly we all own at least one educational tool that we were forced to rely on when the product manual wasn't enough. The fact that I am not one for watching a lot of television is an amusing irony that should not be missed while reading this overview of the very informative Nikon School Creative Lighting DVD.

This is the last chapter in the "best of 2008" trilogy, unofficially titled, The Pocket Camera Strikes Again. Jokes aside, manufacturers have become quite serious in making their cameras increasingly more specialized and unique. A few years ago, when walking up to a wall of point and shoot cameras on display, you might have had a hard time discerning the subtle differences in the sea of silver plastic bodies. Nowadays, not only are color choices available, there are also plenty of specialty tools such as RAW file formats, wide-aperture and wide-angle optics, built-in GPS receivers, high definition videos, and HD video. So let's take a look at some of the brightest cadets of the class of 2008.
