Some include accessories that might make your photographic life easier and more fun, while...

It's been said that every gadget bag is a compromise between how well it protects your gear and how easily your equipment can be accessed. This is especially true with photo backpacks. But if you need to carry a heavy load of gear into the field, a properly fitted backpack is hard to beat. Besides cost, there are five points to consider when selecting a backpack. How you...

You have a bag full of lenses, but you need a pair of binoculars, too. Binoculars are a true "crossover" accessory that are useful when you're out taking pictures--but are equally useful when pursuing other pastimes, like watching your kids play soccer, or checking out the birds that frequent your back yard feeder.

At photokina 2006 the company added two new versions of these precision-machined products. Like all kinds of support-related products, the Novoflex Panorama=Q and Panorama=Q PRO are media-passive, not...

I enjoy it when a new product arrives that holds a surprise right out of the box. The surprise with Epson's new PowerLite 1715c projector is when you first lift it out of its shoulder bag carrying case--it's the lightest projector you will probably have lifted, slide or digital. Weighing in at under 4 lbs (3.7 to be exact) and 3.1x10.7x7.6" in overall size...

Innovation is not the word which immediately springs to mind when you think about camera bags. And yet, innovation there was at this photokina.

Case in point: A properly loaded backpack with a two-strap harness, lumbar support, and sternum straps is the most comfortable and best balanced way for most people to carry heavy camera gear. But until now, you had to take...
