On a recent trip to Curacao, Netherlands Antilles, I had a choice of several of Lowepro's photo backpacks. I would load one up, try it on, and do the same with each in turn. Even though I received the DryZone Rover for the express purpose of testing it, I wasn't about to sacrifice my trip and take a bag ill-suited to the task. Among the bags at my disposal were the...

If a perfect place for landscape photography were to be built, what amenities would be included? Most photographers would want mountains, lakes, an assortment of trees, a U-shaped valley, a stream, easy access, protected land, a trail system, eastern or western exposure, wildflowers, a different look for each season, a beaver dam, driftwood, boulders, blue sky, high clouds, fog...

Every photographer knows about visible light being used to capture photographic images digitally or with film, but there are other kinds of light that we can't see. Light with wavelengths from approximately 700 and 900nm (nanometers) is called infrared light. Interestingly, this band of infrared light is a thousand times wider than that of visible light, but is invisible to...

Although 13x19 inkjets have been available for some time, including the highly regarded Photosmart 8750, the B9180 is the first pigment ink photo printer from HP, and the first Photosmart printer to bear the...

After covering many of the new brand name LCD displays in previous Shutterbug reports, I could not ignore LG Electronics' (LGE) LCD displays, in part because they are likely the world's current leader in LCD manufacture, although most of the production is OEM and sold under many different brand names. Recently, however, LGE has been marketing under their own brand name...

The new Epson V700 Photo/V750-M Pro Perfection scanners remind me of the very first Epson professional scanner I got to know over 10 years ago. The resemblance, however, is largely superficial. Even though the new V700 and V750 have a shape similar to the Expression of over a decade ago, these new Perfection scanners reflect an entirely different era of scanning performance. While...
