Looking at the latest camera bag offerings has an extra piquancy when you are in the market for a bag yourself, as I was at this year's PMA. My husband Roger Hicks had just bought a new laptop, which was a very tight fit indeed in his existing camera bag. We needed something new. We ended up with the CompuTrekker AW backpack from Lowepro--but along the way, I was...

Slingshots may seem like odd travel accessories, but these SlingShots are two dispatch rider-style backpacks--also known as bandoleer bags and, yes, sling bags--from Lowepro.

They are part of the "Designed for Digital" range, but don't let that worry you: they are at least as good for film cameras. Yes, they are designed especially for...

I get many questions from readers, pros, and people I meet who don't trust putting their images into a portable storage device, hoping that they'll safely be there (in the card) when they get back from a vacation. After all, the gadget has a simple job to do; it must safely hold your image files until you download them onto your computer. There are many kinds of...

Have you ever wondered what top wedding photographers carry in their bag? We spoke with four seasoned wedding photographers and got them to open up their bag of tools for us. One thing you'll notice is that they don't all carry the same gear. Some use Canon, others Nikon, the two brands that seem ensconced at the top of the professional camera...

Look around any photographer's studio and you'll see all manner of tools aside from camera, darkroom or computer imaging station, and the requisite coffeepot. Studios can occupy entire floors of a loft building or a small room in the back of a storefront, but regardless of size it's a place where creativity and tools mesh. While different types of tools are...

As digital SLRs and "prosumer" digicams have become increasingly popular, the need for recording speed has also increased. Anyone who owns a 6- to 10-megapixel camera can really benefit from a very fast memory card. Particularly after shooting a series of images, recording time can be quite short--instead of frustratingly long--so the camera can be ready to...

Wireless transfer of photographic image files is nothing new--at least not in Internet years. Canon and Nikon have their own versions of such devices and while they are not inexpensive (about $1000) they are not that expensive if you really need to transfer image files wirelessly. The downside to Canon's WFT-E1A and Nikon's WT-2 is that both are designed to work...

When the founders of Think Tank Photo decided to enter the already-crowded gadget bag marketplace they began by studying how photographers behave. They asked professionals to demonstrate how they access their equipment under actual working conditions, including those tougher circumstances like bad weather, pushy crowds, and other real-world situations. Among other things they...

It wasn't too long ago that Nickel Cadmium (NiCd) technology was all the rage in rechargeable batteries--until someone discovered that the heavy metals are an environmental nightmare. As a result, many companies switched over to Nickel Metal Hydride (Ni-MH), or Nickel Hydride for short (NiHy), which is arguably more environmentally friendly. NiCd battery systems are...
