What do you get when you put six ace reporters into a huge hall filled with photo and imaging gear? In our case, these being our contributors, a bunch of kids in a candy store who deliver the most comprehensive reports available on this annual photo show. Held in Las Vegas in mid winter, the...

It may surprise some readers to discover that the CCD was invented at Bell Labs in 1969, a fine year for wine, songs, and cars--think of the awesome Plymouth Road Runner. CMOS is a little older, having been developed in 1948. While curmudgeonly writers and editors patiently wait for this...

PMA 2003 abounded in lots of digital gear. There were digital camera bags, digital tripods, and so forth so I went looking for digital lens tissue. I failed to find it but found something better from the clever folks at Hakuba (www.hakubausa.com).
