There was a time when Apple held sway over all creative professionals. It was almost impossible for you to find a creative department that didn’t have a core group that was Apple-specific. In almost every workplace, the designers, artists, photographers, and videographers worked exclusively on Mac-based systems. The soft glow of iMacs and sleek design of Mac Pro cylinders were part and parcel of...

They say that a man is only as good as his tools. Well, here at B&H, we believe that a student is only as good as their tech. With that motto in mind, we’ve put together a list of back-to-school gear aimed at addressing the needs of various majors and disciplines. No pens and paper here, this is all advanced gadgetry.

3D printers are not just for hobbyists. They can also be used in schools, whether it’s for creative purposes in art classes or educational purposes in science classes. With the versatility of a 3D printer, teachers can offer students a different perspective into learning about their subjects.

I love my Microsoft Surface Pro 4. I love everything about it. I love that it is the perfect combination of laptop and tablet, that I can just as easily watch movies or slough through spreadsheets. I love its big glossy screen, I love its form factor, I love its light weight, I love...

Everyone knows by now that the PC desktop market is on shakier ground than central California. For years, advances in tablets and mobile computing have taken a bite out of the traditional tower-based market. True, PC gaming is sustaining the need for big, powerful, large-footprint machines, but laptops, smartphones and even (to some extent) personal smart home devices like Amazon Echo are making...

If you’re a photo or video editor who has ever had to work on a location shoot or traveling on the road, you’ve probably experienced the limitations and issues of setting up a portable editing suite. Even if you’re not a pro editor, but are out camping, skiing, or snowboarding for the weekend and want to create some cool videos, do you really want to have to carry a laptop, drives, and other...

I’ll be the first to admit that I was a bit late to the smart-home party. Having purchased my first Echo just a few months ago, I purposely watched this technology develop from the sidelines. Not because I didn’t have faith in its long-term viability, but because I knew that once I dipped my toe in the...

It’s been five years since the last Nintendo gaming console, and while the Wii U may not have been able to follow the popularity of the Wii, it did introduce some interesting ideas. The Wii U Gamepad felt like a prototype for the Nintendo Switch. The Joy-Con controllers feel like upgraded Wii remotes....

A giant in the gaming industry, Microsoft’s gift to the gaming world was the good old Xbox. It was large, clunky, and people loved it. The selection of games was fun at the time, and that’s all that mattered because that’s all consoles were made to do. As our technology improved, we demanded more from our gaming consoles. They had to be better, faster, and have more features, all the while being...

I am in a cave. It’s dark. Well, more like black. Pitch black, if we’re being honest; the darkest virtual cave in which I have ever found myself. I’m disoriented. I spin around, and off in the distance is a blindingly bright stream of light streaking down from above. The contrast is striking. And I mean “contrast” in a literal sense; I have an HDR-capable TV (a...

Gamers around the world have been eagerly awaiting the release of the Switch, Nintendo’s latest foray into video game consoles. Nintendo has long been a powerhouse in the gaming industry, and with that great power comes great responsibility—many industry insiders believe that the Nintendo Switch is the last chance the Kyoto-based gaming giant has to reclaim its former glory. Fortunately, the...

Pre-production involves work done on a film or broadcast program before full-scale production begins, and production is the act of shooting a project on film or digital media. Post-production refers to work done on a film or television show after shooting (production) has taken place, and is a...

Being a Graphic Designer requires many plug-ins, tools, and applications to get things done—and fast. Many of us have discovered Wacom tablets. Really, we discovered the pen and got excited. Deep down, we know the pen is mightier than the mouse, even though the biggest challenge is getting one’s hands on a Wacom tablet and working through the learning curve. Recently, I managed to get my hands on...

There are many things that people legitimately fear—death, disease, clowns—and those fears can limit us, debilitate us, or make us fall short of achieving our true potential. But some fears can be overcome, and one of those fears, one which affects many more people than you think, is the fear of having to pitch or present an idea to a group of people—the fear of not being able to come up with a...

By now, most consumers have heard of mesh networking (or as it is alternately known, whole home Wi-Fi systems). In the last couple of months, mesh networking for the home market has taken off (although it has been widely used in enterprise solutions for years).
