Over the years I've often written about shooting in the studio. Whether it's a huge commercial studio with a 30 foot wide cyclorama wall or the basement of your home, having an organized space with some decent lighting equipment is a tremendous...

Every year the Technical Image Press Association (TIPA), a worldwide association of photo and imaging magazine editors, meets to pick the Best of Class in a wide range of photo categories. As the sole US member of the association, Shutterbug joins editors from Europe, Asia, and Africa in the nominating, judging, and selection process. One of the most exciting aspects of photography today is the constant advancement of technology and design, and this year’s Top Products reflect that spirit and those accomplishments, including new categories of Video D-SLR and Mobile App. Editor George Schaub joins all fellow TIPA members in congratulating those selected to receive the prestigious TIPA award.

“Not your father’s camera bag” was how Tenba described the prototypes of their new Vector line at photokina 2010. Now, in 2012, the new line is in production, and they were absolutely right. What are the differences? Color, style, and function. A report like this is no place for detail: that’s what manufacturers’ websites are for, and besides, a full, detailed list of new camera bags could more than fill the whole magazine. What I want to do is to give you some idea of the way that bags are heading.

As digital SLR and 5-plus megapixel digicams have proliferated so has the need for higher capacity memory cards. Having even a 64MB card seems insufficient these days, especially with so many people choosing TIFF or raw image file formats as their mode of choice. Enter the new 4GB CompactFlash...

Billed as a "large wheeled camera/computer case," the Pelican 283 (for short) can carry all your gear, and more, in a clever design that holds more than you could imagine in a carryon, wheeled case. In truth, when the entire bag is "together," it can be difficult to stow into an above-seat bin, my main criteria for a bag these days, and in fact the case is...

The introduction of a technological breakthrough in digital imaging that has global significance is one of the things photographers live for. But, for a product to be that significant, it must be one of the basic building blocks that all camera...

Accessories are intended to make taking pictures more exciting, make using the main equipment you already own simpler, or simply to whet your interest to try something new.

Whether hiking in the wilderness or traveling to foreign shores, my bag of choice is a photo backpack, leaving me little worse for wear at the end of the day. Unlike a shoulder bag or sling bag, which puts all the stress, respectively, on one shoulder or your neck, the backpack distributes the weight evenly across both shoulders.

Over the years I’ve photographed hundreds if not thousands of models and subjects on muslin, canvas, and other background materials, and in many unique settings. I’ve had the privilege to shoot many magazine covers, dozens of catalogs, and ads for magazines.

The man at the discount store carefully examined every item on the rack, pulling each forward while scrutinizing it with squinted eyes. “It’s harder than finding the right watch battery,” he said under his breath. “There are plenty to choose between, but which is the right one?”

I found out later he was looking for a high-capacity SDHC card for his...

In our photokina reports we usually have a section dubbed “Weird and Wonderful,” the unique and daring products that appeal to more photographers than any of us care to admit. Some meet real needs in unique ways, or anticipate unique needs among a small group of photographers, but all are certainly interesting. We present them as such for your consideration.

They are available in a variety of colors and designs and even have matching flowers to use to complement the mat. New banister sets include a column and a short...

Photographers should back up their image files—it’s as simple as that—and there are numerous services that offer their services today. In this article I’ll be looking at one, Carbonite (www.carbonite.com), that works somewhat differently from others. Many people have told me that their $59 per year for the Home Plan, unlimited backup, is a steal, so I thought I’d check it out.
