I am a sucker for design. Style is subjective. Design is art and, therefore, subjective. Does form follow function, or does function dictate form? In the world of photography, just like in many product lines, the camera has run the gamut, from utilitarian tool to work of art. Some of those utilitarian cameras were unintentionally beautiful and some cameras had attractive designs that got in the...

If you are stranded on a desert island and can only have one camera lens with you, which lens would you choose? If your answer wasn’t, “a 50mm (or 50mm equivalent lens),” then you might be wrong. The 50mm prime lens is the one lens every photographer toting an interchangeable-lens camera should own… and use. Why? Before I tell you all the reasons, I will tell you a sea story.

Photographers at B&H span many genres of the art and, as such, what I got from each one was different. I got some great food for thought and added some items to my B&H wish list!

    The travel tripod conundrum is a cruel reality of physics and practicality. The larger and heavier a tripod is, the steadier it will hold a camera. The larger and heavier a tripod is, the less likely you will ever want to carry it around or take it on a trip. Why are we left with a photographic reality like that which makes the tastiest food bad for you? Tripods come in all shapes, weights,...
