Bags and Cases

If I were to mention every pouch and bag for digital cameras, I could fill the next three issues of Shutterbug, and I must admit that after a while they all blend together. Only a few stand out in my mind, and they tend to be the really well made leather pouches or bags.

Fundamental Accessories For Every Photographer
Everyone has to carry their equipment, and a good bag makes it easier to work quickly and efficiently, and saves your back, neck, and arms from unnecessary discomfort. It therefore follows that although bags are sometimes seen as unexciting, they are of fundamental importance.

To detail all the new bags that are introduced at a single show would take up at least one issue of Shutterbug, so what follows is a brief (believe it or not), alphabetical review of the highlights at PMA, with a small rant by way of preface. If you want more information on introductions not described...

Having attended the ever-growing PMA trade show for 40 years, I'm used to seeing lots of interesting new items of appeal to general photo enthusiasts. This year was no exception, but new offerings seemed to be primarily in the rapidly expanding digital-oriented category, which other editors were...

While our reporters were assigned specific product categories to cover for the show, we also requested that they pick what they considered their favorite product of the show. The product didn't have to be in their area--indeed, the product could be a prototype or something that wouldn't appear in any real way for the near future. So here's the Shutterbug...

Just as when you send out five photographers to the same spot and they all come back with a different picture, our editors came away from the big PMA Show with one or two (or a few) products that caught their eye. Their choices reflect their professional interest, how the product might help make...

Best Of Show

Fujifilm FinePix F700
Although I was not covering digital cameras, I could not resist checking out one model, the new Fujifilm FinePix F700. Encased in a handsome aluminum body, this camera is not only packed with advanced SLR-type...

According to a report published by the Photo Marketing Association (PMA), some 82 percent of cameras sold in 2005 will be digital. The study also indicates that many consumers are already buying their second or third digicams, making the full-featured, high-resolution models increasingly popular. Consequently, I was not surprised to find numerous new cameras at PMA 2005 with...

There’s a new kid on the block when it comes to tripods, and they’re impressive, both in design and philosophy. Redged was founded in Holland by a nature photographer (Ed Dorrestein) and a sports and reportage photographer (Bart Bel) in order to get the kinds of tripods they personally wanted.

 

We weren’t the only ones who were impressed. This was...

Photokina, the world’s largest imaging show, will open its doors in Cologne, Germany in a week and an array of new cameras, lenses, and assorted photo accessories are set to make their debuts at this massive event.

The weirdest camera at the show, the GFAE, wasn’t even recognizable as a camera, not least because it was a view camera with the bellows left out in order to show its construction more clearly. We’ll come back to it later, but first, let’s look at some more conventional offerings.

Canon’s newest full frame, flagship professional DSLR, the EOS-1D X Mark II, is a real speed demon. We saw just how fast it is during a hands-on demo of the new Canon rig at the WPPI show this week.
