Readers of Shutterbug will recognize a change in this issue, one that has been in the works for a while and that came to fruition through the energy and effort of all the staff, especially Art Director Richard Leach. Our aim in this design change is to continue to bring you all the information and images Shutterbug has delivered in the past with a fresh look and approach. We made...

I have a bunch of prints on the walls and desktops of my studio, and I almost can't believe my eyes. For years I have been stubbornly teaching that image resolution (in pixel dimensions) and physical print size were in lock step, and even scoffed at a camera maker for claiming that their 5-megapixel digicam could produce 20x24 prints. Make a good 13x19 from anything less...

Now that megapixel counts in digicams and digital SLRs are growing monthly, the need for a solid back-up setup is obvious. Various portable devices, including laptops, have filled the gap, but how do you back up the original downloaded files? If your laptop has a CD or DVD burner you might think the battle is over, but anyone who has burned DVDs, or heaven help you CDs into the...

While we did feature some crystal ball gazing in our December issue, I thought I'd use this space to discuss some of the matters we'll be exploring and some of the trends we'll be watching as we move into 2006. In the last year we've done our best to keep you up-to-date on the issues and changes that have taken place in photography, and there's no...

The compact digital SLR category has seen quite a few entrants of late, all vying for the hearts and minds, and dollars, of those moving up from point-and-shoot digicams or from their film SLR cousins. While those already in possession of compatible glass from their film SLR cameras are usually swayed one way or the other in their purchase, there are those who have no investment...

The title of this editorial sounds confusing, and confused, I know, but I am voicing here a mere mirror for our photographic times. There are so many options available these days, with each having its camp and cheerleaders, that it's little wonder that photographers might seem confused. To begin with film vs. film, there's been a continuing debate over whether it is...

By now Shutterbug readers know that we call cameras with integral (non-interchangeable) lenses digicams. This is not meant as denigration but as differentiation from digital SLRs. And usually, due in part to the volume of models and in main because of their sameness, we usually hold off on any type of digicam review, feeling readers will not be that interested in more than a...

For this issue we asked our contributors to take what they have learned from the last year, mix in a good dose of what they might have heard from peers and manufacturers about what's on the drawing board, and come up with some predictions about what we might expect in the year ahead. Their essays make for fascinating reading, with each contributor discussing an aspect of the...

Coming in at just over a 1/2" thick and weighing an unnoticeable 4 oz, the Casio EXILIM EX-S500 is a wonder of miniaturization, considering it has a 3x optical zoom and 5-megapixel sensor. This, the latest version of Casio's mini-digicams, also has what the company terms Anti Shake DSP (Digital Signal Processor) and a large 2.2" LCD screen for both taking and...

Now that the Shutterbug Forums have been online for the last six months I can honestly say that they have been a success. We tried various topics and categories (and we're always open to your suggestions) and have honed them down to what we consider essential areas of interest. The feeling of success comes not so much from our creating the Forums but in how you, the readers...
