Continuing our discussion of the year's most interesting lenses, let's revisit those exciting announcements as they pertain to digital SLRs. In 2008 we had PMA, Photokina and PhotoPlus - the trifecta of photographic expositions. These shows brought forth a plethora of delectable tools for both the serious and budding photographer. The following overview is in reverse-alphabetical order (as a change) so we begin with Sony.

As some of you may know, I was a combat photographer for nearly 12 years. When I retired from the service, I joined the American Legion. It's the largest veteran's organization that was established by military veterans back in 1919 to mentor and sponsor youth programs such as the American Legion Baseball League. My Legion Post 166 hosted a huge tournament and we all raised money to pay for the event. Since my talent is photography, the Post asked if I would set up a booth to make portraits of the atheltes and sell prints to help raise additional funds.

My background in filmmaking and animating keeps my focus on any editing and animation tools that become available. I've used Photoshop over the years to design textures for 3D objects or basic photo touchups required for the final video project. And although I have a collection of decent SLR cameras, still photography is more of a hobby for me, so I've limited my use with Photoshop to the video/animating worlds. Thus when Photoshop CS4 Extended came out a couple of years ago, I was already familiar with the basic animating tools included that may have eluded the amateur or pro photographer.

In the process of trying to organize the dozens of DSLRs we sell at B&H into their respective price and performance categories for our 2010 Holiday DSLR roundup, it was impossible to not notice how much bang you get for your hard-earned bucks these days—and in a choice of formats and colors, no less.

Hands-on Review

Everybody loves the smell of a new car, so much so you can 'bring back the love' with a shpritz or two of 'Au du Pee V'cee', which is available in 16 oz spray cans at your local car wash (the generics are reportedly just as good). Not so the look and finish of your camera gear. As spotless as they are out of the box, over time cameras, lenses, and tripods start showing the scuffs and ding-marks that inevitably come along with using your gear. And while you can't roll back the clock with anything sprayed out of a can, LensCoats offer a great measure of protection and functionality in a smart lineup of products.

PowerShots for Everyone

For the better part of a decade, Canon PowerShot A-Series cameras have offered a respectable set of features at an affordable price. Excellent resolution, sharp Canon optics, and quality handling have made the cameras extremely popular with budget conscious shutterbugs. Though never quite as compact or sleek as the Digital ELPH line, the PowerShot A-Series has always been renowned for capturing high-quality images with ease.

Scottish-born photojournalist Harry Benson has had a 60-year career photographing many of the icons of American politics and life. His fifty-minute presentation is, in many ways, too short to fully grasp his reach into the American soul.

Most photographers would be happy hiding behind their cameras producing beautiful images for days on end. In reality though, that’s not a good way to run a successful business. Networking, strong interpersonal relationships and a good reputation are essential to build your brand.

This B&H video is like a pleasant cruise down the Hudson River. On second thought, it is a pleasant cruise down the Hudson River (then up the East River and around Manhattan), with photographer Moose Peterson and more than 400 photographers, as they all enjoy a beautiful day capturing the sights of the city—from the water.

The 'Best of the Best' does not always mean expensive. But then again, sometimes it does. While compiling the 2008 'Best of the Best' photo gift wish list, we had to keep the dizzying realities of the day's financial headlines in mind. And to the ancient wise man who said, "May you live in interesting times", all we can say is "Thanks… wish you were here."

Hands-on Review

Admittedly, it seems that this year’s CES breakout products were more about big tablets, smart TVs and gaming, but a few standout cameras and camcorders were introduced last week that will most likely be hot items in the year to come and, for camcorders, might even signal a path for a new marketing niche.

Buying Guide

When categorizing the many DSLRs we carry at B&H into three groups—entry level, midrange and professional— there are some models that, depending on their attributes, price points or your point of view, fall into more than one camp. Our selection of mid-range DSLRs is no exception. You can call them "Mid-Range" cameras, but a few of them are well up to the challenge of full-time pro shooting.
