During 2004, most of the major camera manufacturers announced 8-megapixel digicams, leading us to believe that the next trend would bring 10-megapixel models in 2005. Instead, it brought a slew of new 7-megapixel cameras with built-in lenses. At press time, over a dozen such models were available. Meanwhile, it seemed that 8-megapixel development had ground to a halt, at least...

When I first reviewed an HP 7960 printer about two years back (www.shutterbug.net/test_reports/1203sb_hp/index.html) I was very impressed with the neutral black and white images it delivered. I had become increasingly frustrated with the color shifts in black and white with pigment inks, and have...

Germany is a good place for photographic camera enthusiasts to go. This is true for people who are looking for used cameras that they can buy at reasonable prices as well as for classic collectibles. Top models of the most famous brands dominate the market for used and classic cameras, with Leica in highest demand. But other high-value and professional products made by Canon...

It's also for teachers, clubs, and institutions who might want to convert 35mm slides to digital files for lectures, presentations, and archiving.

Judging from the letters we receive and the action on our Forums (at www.shutterbug.com) the debate between digital and film photographers is ongoing, and shows no signs of abating. Some photographers have manned the silver-halide barricades and defy all comers by waving the silver-halide flag, while others scoff at the film fans by terming them reactionaries and...

"All power corrupts but we need the electricity."--Anonymous

Those people who tell me they capture everything in raw format remind me of those photographers who used to shoot "everything on Velvia." Heck, I don't even shoot everything on CompactFlash. My Canon EOS-1D Mark II takes both CompactFlash and Secure Digital cards. Well Bunky, if...

Now that Corel's Painter has arrived at version number IX, it gives some indication that the application has been around for some time, over a dozen years in fact. Even though it is very well established in the computer art and illustration worlds it is not as well-known in digital photography. Part of the reason is that in the past it had an incredibly complex user...

Until you understand the reference, "spectacle" lenses for M-series Leicas are a rich source of confusion. Are they for spectacle wearers? And why (when you see a picture) do the lenses themselves appear to be wearing spectacles?

To make life still more interesting, there are two separate reasons why some Leica lenses have "spectacles," and...
