The most vibrant growth sector in high-end film cameras was undoubtedly rangefinder, with a completely new model from Zeiss and two substantially revised models from Voigtländer: I have already covered Leica a la carte elsewhere.

The lenses for the new Zeiss Ikon are really exciting: Distagon 15mm f/2.8, Biogons for 21mm f/2.8, 25mm f/2.8, 28mm f/2.8, and 35mm...

My friend's 3-year-old opened her beauty shop in her parents' home. First mommy and daddy got their makeup and manicures. Then it was my turn. But who was going to take the pictures? Well, I put the camera in her dad's hands--first time he'd seen it, let alone operate this digital camera. I knew him to be a good photographer, but also knew that untried...

One of the most popular software areas recently has been DVD slide show creation programs. With the increased number of DVD writers it's becoming easier than ever to put your images on DVD for playback on computers and televisions.

The best source for new business is still the last client you worked with. It can be 5-10 times more expensive to be constantly looking for new clients as it is to keep the ones you already have. It is more expensive because you will have increased marketing costs (and spending overhead) when it takes 10 clients to bill 10 jobs and you are constantly marketing for jobs instead of...

The majority of new models shown at photokina were digital of course, but two new 35mm SLRs were also introduced, including one that came as quite a surprise. Nikon's new professional F6 left some...

Anyone who loves shooting scenics probably enjoys capturing the grandeur of mountains. As with most landscapes, it's best to photograph mountain scenery very late in the afternoon or very early in the morning. Some of the best high-country photos are shot by photographers who get up before daybreak or stop shooting only after dark. You'll find that an otherwise...
