When Nikon announced the D2X last year at photokina there was a good deal of anticipation about it, and a good wait that followed until it finally arrived. In the meantime, Canon countered with their EOS-1Ds Mark II, which in many ways shaped the competitive landscape. With a street price of $4999.95, Nikon's flagship digital SLR is $3000 less than the $8000 (body only) Mark...

Like most photographers, before I try out new equipment on clients, I test it thoroughly. Yeah, right. It's digital so why bother? We can see the picture right off, so let's get shooting! And so it was with this camera. The day after I got it I was booked in the studio all day with sessions, so after a few...

About a year ago I called up a stock agency to whom I'd been submitting 35mm and 6x7 slides for years and told them I was considering sending digital files. "Oh, don't worry about that, we scan your slides for you," they kindly replied. No, I told them, I want to start submitting files made...

When I received Canon's EOS-1D Mark II for testing, I planned to photograph Jaguar Mark 2 automobiles comparing camera and car models, but the changeable weather of springtime in the Rockies (it snows a lot) meant my choices were narrowed as the deadline marched on. So I ended up taking...

The digital SLR world is a jungle. Just days after Canon announced its earthshaking 11-megapixel, full frame, EOS-1Ds SLR in September of 2002, Kodak blew them out of the water with their 14-megapixel SLR, the DCS 14n. The Kodak digital SLR was not only...

The Nikon D2H has replaced the Nikon D1H; it has also been targeted against the competition camera Canon EOS-1D. The Nikon D2H is capable of 8 fps which matches the Canon EOS-1D in terms of frames per second. There is no other camera in this league on the...

One of the glories of digital cameras is that you have as many options as you could desire in terms of exposure, white balance, file format and compression, sharpness, contrast, color saturation, bracketing, flash modes, and ISO settings, etc., all in each frame.

Fashion photography is about control. It wouldn't be unusual for 12 people, in addition to the photographer, to be involved in a studio fashion shoot just to capture a single cover shot. On the runway it's different. You only have one opportunity to catch a photograph of a model...

Photographing race cars is a challenge no matter what kind of camera you use. Most people think that all they need is high ISO, fast shutter speed, and a long lens with a large aperture a.k.a. "big glass." Toss in a high frame per second continuous shooting mode and with a little...

The Canon EOS-1Ds

This digital thing just might work out after all. Consumer point-and-shoot cameras are getting better, faster, cheaper, and easier to use. Photo quality color printers are starting to live up to their "lab...

The long awaited and anticipated Nikon D1X arrived in our offices the other day, and we couldn't wait to get to work with it. To those who have worked with a Nikon D1 the camera offers similar handling and workflow, although there have...

For serious photographers the holy grail of digital SLR cameras will be the one that produces images as good as those obtained in a high-end camera using 35mm film. Currently, there's little dispute that digital images obtained...
