The most recent speed gains have been in SD format cards, making us wonder about the larger CF card. But that concern has been to an extent dispelled by some of the recent developments in this very fast-changing field. One of the newest developments unveiled at the show was a card that sits between those two sizes, the XQD card. The first camera to accept the new memory card is the Nikon D4, although the D4 also features a CF slot.

 

XQD has a smaller form factor than CF, so they’re not interchangeable. Sony, the company that introduced the world’s first XQD card, notes that you can record up to 100 Raw image frames from continuous shooting mode using the card and obtain 125MB/sec read/write speed when using a PCIe port; new XQD card readers are available as well. The casing around the card is “robust,” with contact pins inside the casing itself, which Nikon says helps eliminate problems in the field.

Shoe-mounted flashes are handy tools. Where space or weight is a concern, a kit with two or three shoe-mounted flashes is much easier to carry than even the smallest power pack/head combo or a low-output monolight, and more versatile.

Minolta made its name years back with 35mm SLR autofocus cameras and has since gone on to bring their expertise to digital cameras as well. So, when the Minolta DiMAGE A1 digital camera was introduced I was curious to test its various focusing modes and features. This report concentrates on...

Just when I thought I'd seen her at her best, Lois Greenfield steps it up a notch and amazes me once again with her sharp eye for the body in motion. "Sharp" is the operative word here. Many photographers, myself among them, may accept a little blur in a fast-moving subject. Not Greenfield. She learned long ago that if sharpness and crisp detail are important to...

What defines fine art rests as much in the eye of the artist—be that a painter, sculptor, or photographer—as in the eye of the beholder who finds beauty and meaning in that work. The work can be something the artist discovers and captures or creates from scratch. In the case of photographer Hugh Kretschmer’s imagery, it is a tapestry interwoven with elements from disparate sources: a collage, if you will, forming a coherent whole and thereby conveying a message.

I've worked with all kinds of Internet photo studios over the years. Most consist of a light tent of sorts, with or without lights, and the materials used are translucent fabric or plastic. But I have never come across anything like the MyStudio 20 until now. It is definitely different. So, does different make it better, or even as functional as other tabletop setups?

Camera bags are no longer a mere tool to convey photo gear from point A to point B. Nowadays many want their photo luggage to be as fashionable as any belt, footwear, or handbag. And we still want it to be rugged. The entries in this year's PMA report don't fall short when it comes to being stylish, although a few are more staid and traditional in design. Many, in...

With printer manufacturers introducing better and better printers, particularly affordable high-end dye-based inkjets and consumer-oriented pigment-ink printers, all media manufacturers have lined up to bring us products that will expand the horizons of these output devices. Of particular interest to me was one company's refillable ink system designed for a consumer...

There was no lack of gadgetry at this year's PMA, especially when it came to portable data and picture storage and display. The themes and variations boggle the mind, making it increasingly difficult to choose one product over another--especially when products from one company show an uncanny resemblance to those from another. However, many products distinguish...
