Canon's new EOS 5D full-frame sensor digital SLR with 12.8-megapixel resolution set off a lot of speculation and opining in the electronic ether, which was to be expected. What was surprising was that it launched an argument as to what is affordable for a professional-grade digital camera. Since I got into photography in 1952, automobiles have increased in price about 10...

Now, Epson has responded with their new Stylus Photo R2400 that is really three printers in one. First, it is an even...

I must admit I was surprised that just two years after I reviewed the Konica Minolta DiMAGE Scan Elite 5400 the company would come out with an improved and substantially modified new model.
