On the Cover
This month our focus is on pro gear. We reveal the tools of the trade with a variety of Test Reports on new products that take you from capture to output. We even show you how to upgrade your PC for imaging. As an added bonus, Joe Farace provides an in-depth look into digital infrared photography so you can learn how to capture the magic, too.
