The HARMAN TiTAN PINHOLE CAMERA has been designed in conjunction with, and manufactured in the UK by Walker Cameras who are well known for their range of Titan large format film cameras. The body is made from injection moulded ABS, finished with a very durable non-slip coating. All fittings are made from stainless steel. This combination of materials makes the camera exceptionally robust to withstand extreme natural elements, and rough handling. The camera, which can be used with any photographic film or paper, takes a 4 x 5 film holder and features tripod mount positions, built-in spirit levels, and an accessory mount. The kit comes with a 72mm wide-angle pinhole cone, which is interchangeable. Separate cones of 110 and 150mm, which is the same focal length as the standard lens on a 4 x 5 camera, are planned as optional extras.

Sigma Corporation of America has announced that its updated 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 II DC OS HSM is now available in Canon and Nikon mounts for the MSRP of $720.

Sigma’s 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 II DC OS HSM is the successor to the Sigma 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 DC OS , which was launched in 2007. The lens has been updated to include the company’s new “F” Low Dispersion (FLD) glass elements, which perform like fluorite glass and significantly improve lens performance. The FLD glass now complements the lens’ other, Special Low Dispersion (SLD) glass elements and aspherical lenses, which already provide excellent correction of color aberration.

Ideal for beginner and professional photographers alike, this 11.1x high-zoom ratio lens is designed exclusively for digital SLR cameras and incorporates Sigma’s Optical Stabilization (OS) system, which allows for high-performance, handheld, close-up photography.

The enhanced multipurpose zoom lens offers photographers the opportunity to capture wide-angle shots such as scenic, landscape and group photos, and, at the long end, is well-suited for candid portraits and sports action photography. With a compact body and length of just 3.5 inches, the lens is lightweight and easy to handle for photographers who are on the move.

Pentax has a long history of innovation as well as a rabid fan base that loves the company’s tradition of optical excellence and originality. In fact, this fan base is the reason I’m writing this review. If you’re not already a Pentaxian you probably didn’t know that Pentax (derived from PENTAprism refleX) built the first camera to incorporate a penta-prism viewfinder and reflex mirror system in 1957 and went on to introduce the first TTL metering system in 1964. While late to the digital SLR game, when they finally arrived it was with a series of entry-level cameras that delivered impressive image quality at affordable prices. Over time they’ve dipped their toes into the semipro market and the K-5 is the latest model with professional aspirations yet it retains all the quirky uniqueness that all Pentax cameras have and that endears them to so many photographers.

The generation of Canon EOS digital SLRs beginning with the 10D have been evolutionary, with each camera adding resolution and new features. The 60D continues in that vein but also takes a slightly different tack, adding some features from Canon’s own PowerShot series, bringing in functionality like a 3” flip-out LCD screen, and adding some creative effects that show how software is becoming an increasingly important part of any hardware offering. Each of these creative filters, including Soft Focus, Grainy Black and White, Toy Camera, and Miniature Effect, can be applied to a captured image creating a second “filtered” version, leaving the original file unaffected.
