The Minolta AF SLR cameras are aimed toward the entry photographer just purchasing their first SLR as well as more experienced individuals already owning some Maxxum equipment who need an additional camera body. Actually there are two practically identical...

As part of our coverage each of our reporters were asked to pick out what they considered the Best of Show product, service, or idea. In most cases it is the item that caused them to reconsider how they worked or that sparked their imagination. While each reporter had their beat, this category was open game for all, and most "crossed lines" to find their pick.

Although Nikon is best known for professional SLR cameras like the F5 and F100, they sell far more of the entry-level and mid-range models. That's understandable, because such cameras are more compact, simpler to operate, and priced to suit the...

In accordance with my predictions that medium format will move increasingly toward the specialist or niche market, there are no fewer than eight new panoramic rollfilm cameras since last year: one of the most active sectors in traditional silver-halide photography. In reverse alphabetical order, they are Walker/Canham, Shenhao (two models), Noblex, Gilde, and Fotoman (three...

Phoenix P1 And P2 35mm SLR Cameras

Despite the profusion of autofocus, auto-everything SLRs that offer some significant technological innovations, there still remains a demand for good bare-bones camera designs. This is to some...

This would appear to be a new golden age for rangefinder users. There are now three major systems (Leica, Voigtländer, and Zeiss) and two minor (Epson and Rollei). All use the same cross-compatible lens mount, for which an extensive and excellent range of lenses is available, and all compete with one another, albeit at different price points. Who could have imagined this...

Point-and-shoot zoom ranges keep getting more impressive. Not long ago the 35-105mm was the king; now, with Samsung's Maxima Elite 170QD we have a 4.4x zoom that stretches out to a rather incredible 170mm. Of course, point-and-shoot...

Once every two years, the world's largest photographic trade show--photokina--is held in Cologne, Germany, in September. In those years (including 2000) we always find that camera manufacturers announce SLR models with entirely new technology. This year was no exception, with four major cameras announced...

Just as few people actually need a luxury car for transportation, they feel that getting there with impeccable performance in elegance and style greatly enhances the experience. For the same reason, some photographers own one of the luxurious titanium or other alloy-bodied lens/shutter 35mm cameras with...

Professional photographers need a snapshot camera, too. But they require one that delivers the sharpness they have come to expect in their working cameras and a quality look and feel. Happily, there is a small, and somewhat pricey class...

The question posed above was the first reaction to the news about the new Zeiss Ikon rangefinder 35mm in Japan, and perhaps in the US and the rest of the world, when the new camera was unveiled at photokina 2004. But this was wrong, because it was a completely new camera proposed by Carl Zeiss AG.

At photokina 2002 in Cologne, Dr. Scherle, Vice...

The Hasselbald Xpan

Miles Davis, the jazz great, would say, "When you see something that you can do, you know it right away." It follows that my love affair with the Hasselblad Xpan was love at first sight, or actually love at second sight. I was briefly introduced to...
