I read George Schaub’s review of the Olympus 25mm f2.8 pancake lens on Shutterbug.com and, faster than you could say “Zuiko,” I bought one. This was only the second time in my life that I purchased something because I read a positive review about it. The only other time was many years ago when I bought a Bolens Mulching Lawnmower. Sadly, that adventure ended abruptly in tragedy when the mower impaled itself on a hidden iron survey stake one week later.

Pentax K-x

It could be that the good people at Pentax have gone batty. They put way too much stuff in the new Pentax K-x camera. It’s priced slightly above the most expensive compact cameras (in the sub-$600 range with a Pentax 18-55mm zoom lens) and is offered in three colors (red, white and blue) plus basic black.

You’ve probably never thought of a pumpkin as being particularly shiny, but in fact, like many other common objects, their surface is glossy enough to produce glare. Glare is a photographer’s worst enemy. Glare appears as areas of blocked highlights that are completely devoid of detail. Remove the glare and the entire surface of the pumpkin appears in full rich color and lush detail.

To the best of my knowledge, there is only one word in the English language that lacks a vowel: rhythm. Rhythm is something I sure don’t have, but cameras do.

If you shoot video with a DSLR or camcorder that uses SD memory cards, be sure to use a card that is fast enough. Since the introduction of SDHC, cards are labeled with a Speed Class that indicates the sustained data transfer speed. Class 2 cards deliver a sustained read/write speed of 2MB per second. Class 6 operate at 6MB/sec. It’s an easy standard to understand.

Two lenses Sony Alpha owners shouldn’t be without: the 18-250mm all-in-one zoom and the 30mm f2.8 Macro.
