If this year's announcements at PMA are any indication, color management is coming to the masses in a big way. New products, lower prices, and ease of use are all coming together to make this once arcane and neglected area more available to everyone, from seasoned pro to casual digital photographer.

This year also saw consolidation in the market with two of...

As part of our coverage each of our reporters were asked to pick out what they considered the Best of Show product, service, or idea. In most cases it is the item that caused them to reconsider how they worked or that sparked their imagination.

Camera bags are no longer a mere tool to convey photo gear from point A to point B. Nowadays many want their photo luggage to be as fashionable as any belt, footwear, or handbag. And we still want it to be rugged. The entries in this year's PMA report don't fall short when it comes to being stylish, although a few are more staid and traditional in design. Many, in...

Digital photo books seem to be the hot trend for permanently displaying your favorite images.

For just $15, you get an 81/2x11 hardcover book containing a transparent protective matte plastic cover sheet at both ends and 15 sheets inside...

Novoflex has long made a series of what they call panorama plates and what the rest of us call panorama heads, although they really are closer to being a plate than a head. At photokina 2006 the company added two new versions of these precision-machined products. Like all kinds of support-related products, the Novoflex Panorama=Q and Panorama=Q PRO are media-passive, not...

Being a gear head at heart, I'm not really happy unless my backpack is overflowing with neat photo equipment. However, while most of the photo gear used in the field is apparent and readily available, there are some lesser-known products that seem to earn their keep fast. Some are for very specific shooting situations or environments while others never seem to be used until...

Externally, binoculars look...

It's been said that every gadget bag is a compromise between how well it protects your gear and how easily your equipment can be accessed. This is especially true with photo backpacks. But if you need to carry a heavy load of gear into the field, a properly fitted backpack is hard to beat. Besides cost, there are five points to consider when selecting a backpack. How you...
