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...
