According to the folks at Tribeca Imaging Laboratories (TIL), digital cameras (and I might add many types of film) "can't see purple." They go on to say, "The digital color model generates a limited spectrum. Any user can confirm this by simply pointing a camera at a deep blue or purple object and comparing the colors on the camera's LCD or computer...

If I could, I'd spend all my time hunting down bugs and lizards and any other critters small enough to fit inside a macro lens. Simply stated, I love macro. So I couldn't wait to put the new EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro lens through its paces on my Canon EOS 20D digital SLR.

 

As you may already know, EF-S is Canon's designation for APS-C-dedicated lenses...

It seems to me that if a photo enthusiast spends $1000 for a digital camera it is a serious investment that carries an expectation of getting high-quality photographic print results. However, all digital cameras, even the more expensive digital SLRs, come out of the box set to the maker's default mode to save images in JPEG format. This, however, only reproduces a fraction...

In my workshops I often get asked, "How do you find digital clients?" I think there is a myth surrounding the word "digital." Photography clients are not really "digital" as a category to target in your marketing. Clients are hiring you to create images and, if it is commercial work, buying the use of those images. If it is consumer, wedding...

Wi-Pics is designed for anyone who shoots large volumes of images and needs
to easily find them. The DICE AMERICA Wi-Pics with a USB port allows Wi-Pics
users to work with hand held barcode scanners, magnetic strip readers, and later
this year RFID. What makes Wi-Pics unique from other wireless cameras is its
data association. Data association is the ability to rename files as they are
captured and place data into the EXIF header of a JPEG file. Wi-Pics can work
with virtually any digital camera with a type 2 compact flash port.

Based on their highly successful Goombah, the new mini-Goombah has all the same
features, in a smaller, lighter package. It's both a rolling case and
a backpack. The wide-set oversize wheels provide a stable platform for rolling
the case through airports, or down city streets. The thickly padded concealable
shoulder straps, adjustable lumbar pad and waist belt transforms the mini-Goombah
into a backpack.

Sigma Corporation has announced the launch of the new 17-70mm F2.8-4.5 DC MACRO
lens, an ideal large aperture standard zoom lens for digital SLR cameras featuring
an APS-C size image sensor. The lens has a minimum focusing distance of 20cm
(7.9") throughout the entire zoom range. Maximum magnification of 1:2.3
enables close-up photography like a macro lens. The new lens design and multi
layer lens coating reduces flare and ghosting. A Special Low Dispersion (SLD)
lens and two aspherical lens elements provide excellent correction for all types
of aberrations and produce a high level of optical performance throughout the
entire zoom range.
