Think of all the photographers you know that complain about their current camera strap. Then browse through photography forums and you'll often find debates involving the typical brand wars and fanboys taking appropriate sides. If you're combing the web for a different camera strap, take a look at some of these recent popular alternatives.
A question we hear often at B&H is, "What lens should I buy?" We may follow up with, "What are you going to shoot with it?" The reason for this is because different lenses are meant for different shooting situations. Here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing a lens (or lenses) for your camera system.
Like many of you, I don't always like to shoot with my DSLR, because of how bulky and heavy it can be. Sometimes, I just want a good point-and-shoot. But to get a really good photo, lighting is so important. I'm a big lover of strobist techniques, so using them with a point-and-shoot was always something that I wanted to test out a bit.
In this video we review the Olympus XZ-1, an advanced point-and-shoot camera with the fastest lens in its class: an i.Zuiko f/1.8.This is the first time Olympus has incorporated a Zuiko lens into a point-and-shoot camera. They were only featured previously on DSLRs.
The Olympus VG120 is a 14MP point-and-shoot camera with a 5x zoom lens and 720p HD video. This Olympus camera features Magic filters to give your photos a fun, unique look. The digital filter group consists of seven filters: Sparkle, Punk, Fisheye, Pinhole, Pop Art, Soft Focus and Drawing.
There is an old saying amongst some photographers that using a UV filter will degrade the quality of your image. But is it really true? We put that to the test recently in the B&H Executive Offices. We'd like to know, in the comments below, if you can tell the difference between the two images, and tell us which one was shot with a filter and which one wasn't.
