This item is a real blast from the past, one that goes all the way back to the early days of photography. Just because this kit is retro chic doesn’t mean it isn’t fun (and very educational) for all ages.

And despite the best intentions, some of these resolutions remain unfulfilled—only to be reaffirmed the following year.

Carleton Watkins was perhaps America’s greatest 19th century landscape photographer yet today he’s largely unknown. His breathtaking landscapes of the Yosemite Valley were instrumental in preserving the valley for future generations and paving the way for both the National Parks system and the environmental movement.

Here we go again. That’s what Nikon owners might be saying to themselves now that another possible problem with a new DSLR from the company has surfaced. Several owners of the new Nikon D750 have reported that a dark shadowy band will appear in images with lens flare.
