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.

There was no shortage of lenses at PMA 2009 or teasers behind smudged Plexiglas.Starting with a mock-up of a wide-angle tilt-shift lens for a camera that's still in the prototype stage, Leica is moving forward with lens designs for its medium-format S2. The Leitz Elmar-S 30/3.5 ultra-wide angle tilt-shift lens is a strong indication Leica is serious about bringing out its 39Mp interpretation of the old Pentax 6x7.

Hands-on Review

Pentax is serious about making top of the line DSLRs. All you have to do to prove it to yourself is pick up the new K-7. The camera body - weatherproofed magnesium-alloy body panels wrapped around a stainless steel chassis - fills the hand with a very solid presence and lacks the polycarbonate feel of many lesser-priced DSLRs. And then you have what can only be described as a serious list of features.

In a relatively short time, Hasselblad H-series cameras have garnered the respect of a growing stable of pro shooters, discriminating photo buffs, well-heeled attorneys and orthodontists alike. Along with the latest in imaging technologies and some of the sharpest, smoothest-operating lenses on the market, the Hasselblad H4D-40 delivers the goods in a package that's relatively light (5.04 lb / 2290 g including lens, prism finder, and battery) feels well balanced in the hand, and is as fluid to use as any 35mm-based DSLR, professional or otherwise.

If the Casio Ex-G1 was a Timex, some marketing wag might say that it takes a beating and still keeps ticking. But since it's a camera and not one of Casio's watches, it's better to say it still keeps clicking. At least the Technical Image Press Association thinks so. The group, which represents mostly European-based photo magazines, recently named the Exilim EX-G1 the "Best Rugged Compact Camera" of the year.

A couple of years ago, former B&H Marketing Rep Alan Winslow and his girlfriend Morrigan set out on a project to bike around the entire United States of America and document what people were doing to go green. Now, the couple is working on a new project: The Geography of Youth. This time, they're tackling the world and focusing on the youth. I got to talk to them recently about the project, the gear, and the influences.

Photography is tough work! With the advent of DSLRs and studio software, it’s easier than ever for a novice to take quality pictures without any formal training. People without the requisite creativity, training, and business acumen are calling themselves professional photographers. We asked some famous photographers what advice they would give these people, and what the most trying aspect of the photography business is for them.

How many times have you heard, “Oh, what a beautiful day, not a cloud in the sky!”? Those are the days my camera and I stay home and watch TV. (My camera likes to watch Travels to the Edge with Art Wolfe; he gets to see his cousins.) Being a landscape photographer, I can’t think of anything more boring than a cloudless sky. Clouds add so much interest to almost any scene, that it really isn’t worth venturing out when they aren’t there.
