Perhaps the biggest surprise of the show, at least in conventional photography, was the new 35mm rangefinder stereo camera from Horseman. This shoots stereo pairs in the standard format--2x23x27mm in standard stereo mounts--so they can be projected or viewed with the binocular viewer that is supplied with the camera.

If the camera itself looks oddly...

"Not everyone gets
to meet an angel. Or spend a day with a legend. Or witness history.
Or see a man buried in a Mercedes. But photojournalists do."

A little while ago a reader contacted the Shutterbug offices and asked one of the editors a seemingly simple question; "How do they shoot all of those mail-order catalogs that I get in the mail all the time?" They're always filled with...

In 1993 Clyde Butcher moved with his family into the heart of the Big Cypress National Preserve, 13 acres of swamp with a two-story dwelling surrounded by wild orchids and irises in the middle of a cypress strand. Today, Clyde sits on his back porch and...

make plans, take the initiative. You don't just wake up one morning

We recently worked with 2LT Palmer of the 141st Logistic Task Force on a photo contest open to personnel at Camp Phoenix and serving in Afghanistan. The winners of that contest are shown on these pages. Along with the winning images 2LT Palmer sent us this text, which we think pretty much summarizes the idea and images. We wish all our brave men and women the best and a safe...

While digital, as expected, dominated the show, silver-halide materials were still to be found. These included three new films; faster films in single-use cameras; a new 35mm film support to reduce static (and therefore dust); new archival storage materials; the promise of new papers; and even--somewhat to my surprise--a lonely enlarger on one of the Chinese stands.

"New Orleanians have a way of turning tragedy into humor and some people came dressed as refrigerators. I was overcome with the celebration and...

The one thing that you can count on when you see Richard Pahl's images is that you're not gonna believe what you're looking at. The reason is that he's so darned clever with what he's done/doing, you're just never sure...

As Canon's media spokesman Chuck Westfall predicted a few months earlier, "In compact cameras, the megapixel race is pretty much over." Well, that race may never be over but there is a lull in the action, at least for the moment. The majority of the latest digicams fall into the 5- to 6-megapixel category. Granted, I found some new 8-megapixel models at PMA...
