Let’s say everything comes together just right: You have a great subject, the light is beautiful, and your composition and focus are impeccable. You just captured the money shot, right? Not so fast, because everything is for naught if you mess up the exposure.

The new Canon EOS-1D X Mark II was unveiled last night and as with many pro digital SLRs aimed at sports photographers and photojournalists, the new camera has impressive speed. In particular, it can fire off bursts of images at 14 frames per second with auto exposure (AE) and predictive autofocus (AF) through the viewfinder, and 16fps with the mirror locked. (The previous model offered 12fps and 14fps burst speeds, respectively.)

Adjusting the ISO depending on the level of light in scene is one of the first things you may have learned when using your digital camera. But what if there was a way for the camera to adjust the ISO on its own?

One of the most important skills in the early development of all photographers is knowing how to interpret the light falling on a scene, and then choosing the camera settings that will result in a perfectly exposure photo.

On face value, this would seem to be a silly challenge and in many ways, it is. But silly is good and Jim Goldstein of All Things Photo offers this fun and interesting video comparison between the then cutting edge Canon D2000 from 1998 and today’s Canon 5DS R, a modern 50-megapixel full frame monster.

Remember when Paul Simon crooned, “Mama, don’t take my Kodachrome away”? That classic film may have given you nice bright colors, but only on sunny days. In its early incarnations, Kodachrome’s film speed—its sensitivity—was 10, or slower than Homer Simpson.

We don’t know if this guy’s got water on his brain or not but he’s clearly got a screw loose. Check out his very ill advised technique for cleaning his expensive camera gear: deliberately soaking it in water.

A few weeks ago during a photo shoot, I dropped and fatally damaged one of my cameras. Since I live a good distance from any urban area with a camera shop, I always go online to buy camera and lenses.

Life would be so much easier if we had a single set of camera settings that worked for all types of nature photography. Unfortunately, that’s simply not possible because of ever-changing light, a wide variety of subject matter, and the need to compose various images differently.

I'm qualified to talk about how to disinfect your photo gear to some degree; I take care of a ton of camera equipment and I'm a physician in my past life. And I've had so many requests for information about this that it seems logical to put something out, so everyone has access to it.
