While I am very proud of the job we do here at Shutterbug magazine, there's another aspect of our work that I'd like to call to your attention--our website at www.shutterbug.com. I was reminded of what we offer when I recently met a Shutterbug reader at a photo show. After we talked for a bit about the state...

I am not sure if it's happened to you, but it's happened to me.
After having spent an afternoon shooting with my digital camera everything suddenly
stopped. While the counter in my camera LED showed that I hadple...

These days traveling means taking smaller and smaller devices to fit in with carryon luggage standards. Anything that cuts down on the number and size of those devices is welcome. A number of so-called portable storage devices were seen at the show, many addressing the need for greater storage capacity and raw file reading capability.

Scanners & Printers

While HP did show a number of consumer-oriented printers, perhaps the most interest was generated by their new HP Designjet Z2100 and Z3100 models. Both use HP Vivera pigment ink technology (introduced with the HP Photosmart Pro B9180) and have built-in color management with an embedded spectrophotometer. According to HP, the use of the Vivera pigmented inks yields 200+ years...

Paper & Ink

A number of companies showed new inkjet papers, and we may be seeing the beginning of some debate about the best coatings for the best quality images. Photographic papers have been using a baryta base since the 19th century. This coating creates a bright white paper with a smooth surface, and is now used for inkjet papers as well. The folks at Innova disagree, claiming that...

Every two years the international photo trade descends upon Cologne, Germany, to show their wares and vie for bragging rights over who has the highest megapixel count, greatest zoom ratio, or most archival fine art paper. It is also the place where prototypes are kept under glass or shown in curtained back rooms and where alliances are made and broken. For example, at this...

This issue contains our photokina show report, a summary of what caught our eye at the giant photo and imaging show held in Cologne, Germany, every two years. While we concentrate our main energy on the PMA Show held here in the US (our report on that show will be in our July 2007 issue), photokina does represent a milestone in photography in its international appeal and breadth...

Amateur Digital SLRs
George Schaub Dec 01, 2006 0 comments

The Panasonic DMC-L1 DSLR is Panasonic's first digital single lens reflex
camera. Priced at just under $2000 with a Leica D Vario Elmarit f/2.8-3.5 14-50mm
zoom lens (equivalent to 28-100mm in 35mm format) and 7+ megapixel sensor, it
is a member of the Four/Thirds family. That allows you to use any lens from
the Olympus and Sigma 4/3 mount offerings on the camera as well. It uses SD
cards, and takes the newest SDHC cards with greater storage capacity. And the
Leica lens uses Panasonic's OIS (optical image stabilization) that helps
you get steady shots in two to three less stops of light than usual when shooting
handheld. The body also has a Live View mode similar to the feature found in
Olympus' recent DSLRs.
