Handheld exposure meters have grown increasingly complex over the years. At the same time, they are proving even more utilitarian for a wider range of shooting situations. All of this thanks to microprocessor control. I won't go into the long history of their evolution, but suffice to say that today's high-tech marvels are something else entirely. And the new Sekonic...

At PMA 2004 I handled a prototype of Leica's DIGITAL-MODUL-R and was immediately impressed by the concept of being able to convert a film camera into digital by merely switching backs.

Various portable devices, including laptops, have filled the gap, but how do you back up the original downloaded files? If your laptop has a CD or DVD burner you might think the battle is over, but anyone who has burned DVDs, or heaven help you CDs into the...

Lots of software filters let you apply a certain look after an image is created and some of them mimic the kind of effects camera filters produce while an image is captured. As much as I love using filter plug-ins, they are really postproduction tools for use after a photograph has been acquired. Camera filters are production tools that let you capture images in many ways that...

When hiking or traveling with my SLR system, whether 35mm or digital, I prefer hand holding the camera to shoot nature and scenic views. Yet the value of a tripod is not lost on me, especially when confronted with the relatively long exposures required to capture a gracefully cascading waterfall or the warm glow of a sunset, or when employing a long lens with wildlife (especially...

A monopod can be as simple as a walking stick with a 1/4"-20 camera screw on top, or a high-end industrial model created for field use with professional TV and video cameras. Yet many photographers fail to comprehend their benefits, other than being handy for chasing the cat out from under the bed. They reason that if you can't shoot handheld for whatever reason, then...
