In the right hands, ultra wide-angle lenses can produce awesome images. They can also be awsomely expensive, especially the ones made by the same company that made your camera. If this rings true for you, take a look at Vivitar's Series 1 13mm/f2.8 Aspheric Super Wide lens.
If you own a Canon or Nikon APS-C format compact DSLR and you're looking for a reasonably-priced, fast wide-to-short-telephoto lens to go along with your camera, you should take a look at the Sigma 17-50mm/f2.8 EX DC OS HSM zoom lens.
Seamless backdrop paper has long been a staple of studio photography. So have muslin backdrops, painted backdrops and other materials that can be rolled up or rolled out as needed. But they also take up room, ultimately need to be replaced, and if you're limited to a few choices, can get old and boring rather quickly. So if you're getting tired of the same old look, or if your client wants something different, you might be interested in Savage Digital Backgrounds.
Wolverine has introduced a new line of portable digital back-up drives. Designed as a convenient, lightweight solution for downloading and storing digital still and video image files from memory cards or directly from digital cameras and camcorders, they are collectively known as Wolverine PicPac II Digital Camera & Camcorder Portable Backup Drives.
In the right hands, a 14mm ultra wide-angle lens can produce incredibly dramatic imagery, especially travel landscapes and all the tight places you've never quite been able to squeeze into the frame using the kit zoom that came with your DSLR. But ultra wide-angle lenses—especially the faster f/2.8 versions—are often out of the price range of many enthusiasts. Thanks to Bower, you can now crack the 28mm wide-angle barrier for well under $500. How "well" under $500? How'z about $426? Got your attention yet?
