"A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools."
--Douglas Adams

Like a lot of photographers, I take some things for granted. When inserting a CompactFlash card into a camera and capturing lots of images, I assume that I'll be able to transfer...

Wireless transfer of photographic image files is nothing new--at least not in Internet years. Canon and Nikon have their own versions of such devices and while they are not inexpensive (about $1000) they are not that expensive if you really need to transfer image files wirelessly. The downside to Canon's WFT-E1A and Nikon's WT-2 is that both are designed to work...

It could be that the sainted Adams meant a fuzzy image of a brilliant concept, but we'll never know. This month's column looks at using imaging software to blur an image and was inspired by a letter from reader Carol Baker. As a movie buff you gotta know...

"The mystery isn't in the technique, it's in each of us."
--Harry Callahan

How much does color add to--or take away from--a photograph? Rarely do you get a chance to see a body of work that's identical in color and monochrome but Jorge Tutor (www.jorgetutor.com)...

At PMA 2004 I handled a prototype of Leica's DIGITAL-MODUL-R and was immediately impressed by the concept of being able to convert a film camera into digital by merely switching backs. At PhotoPlus Expo later that year I had the chance to see a preproduction model and hoped that someday this wonderful product would see the light of day. Recently, I've been shooting...

Lots of software filters let you apply a certain look after an image is created and some of them mimic the kind of effects camera filters produce while an image is captured. As much as I love using filter plug-ins, they are really postproduction tools for use after a photograph has been acquired. Camera filters are production tools that let you capture images in many ways that...

Konica Minolta's DiMAGE X1 is an 8-megapixel point-and-shoot digicam that's almost as tiny as their other X-series cameras. It's also sleek, stylish, and comes with a cradle for transferring images and recharging. All that's good stuff but the really big news is that the camera includes Konica Minolta's Anti-Shake technology for taking sharp photos in...
