According to internet authorities, about 64% of the U.S. population (about 96 million of us) wears glasses. And depending on which of these authorities you place your bets with, about 1.5% of the world population wear glasses; though another site claims 5%.  According to yet another site, about 74% of all librarians, 71% of all teachers, 56% of all lawyers, 27% of all artists, and about 20% of all actors and actresses also wear glasses. And for what it’s worth about 60% of the male population and 62% of the female population disagree with the adage ‘Boys don’t make passes at girls who wear glasses”’.

Having squeezed more pixels than most of us actually need into DSLRs in every price range, manufacturers are focusing on incorporating cutting-edge features normally reserved for mid and upper-level DSLRs into their less-pricy consumer DSLRs. Nowhere is this clearer than Canon's 6th generation digital Rebel, the EOS Rebel T1i, which is available as body-only or with a Canon 18-55 IS kit lens.

When word got out we were going to have Olympus E-P1 Micro-4/3 samples at our store a day after it was announced, one Olympus fan drove into Manhattan only to find that the Olympus reps had just left. He spotted them up the block and begged to see the camera. According to reliable sources the guy had tears in his eyes as he coddled the camera.

For the longest time, the words 'new from Leica' sounded like an oxymoron, but on 9/9/09, Leica's Chief Executive Officer Rudi Spiller, along with Director of Product Management Stefan Daniel and the musician/photographer Seal, announced the introduction of 2 new Leica rangefinder cameras – the Leica M9 and Leica X1 - along with the official debut of the medium-format Leica S2. And they were able to make these announcements with straight faces and without chuckles from the audience. Sarcasm aside, these are truly heady days for Leica and long-time Leica aficionados around the world.

Ever since the introduction of the 3.3Mp PowerShot G1 in 2000, most every succeeding G-series digicam has boasted an ever-increasing pixel count. The G10 capped them all at 14.7Mp. But with the new Canon PowerShot G11, Canon's engineers have reverted to a 10Mp imaging sensor, which contains about a third fewer – albeit larger - pixels than the G10. So, the $64,000 question: How does this pixel-shrinkage impact image quality?'

I'd barely cleared off my desktop after a short (but sweet) holiday break when Jim Wagner, our dashing Leica rep, called to find out if I'd be interested in spending the afternoon with a Leica S2. In 2 words? "Oooooh baby!"

The first thing that strikes you when you see Casio's new Exilim EX-G1 is its wedge-like shape. With few exceptions, most point-and-shoot cameras are as boxy as a '64 Chevy Impala. Not so Casio's Exilim EX-G1, which has lines reminiscent of the far sexier-looking '65 Chevy Impala, a car that to this day remains a true head-turner. (What a difference a year makes!)

When Apple released the first version of Aperture back in 2005, the industry took notice. By combining professional-grade photo editing with an extensive file management system, the software became an instant hit with smaller studios and photojournalists. Back then, almost all editing was done in Photoshop. Creating individual layers to control shadows, mid-tones, and highlights was industry standard.
