Nikon D3 Review

The D3 is Nikon’s flagship FX digital camera, if only because it’s Nikon’s sole FX digital camera. But the D3 justifies its standing in the Nikon ranks on much more than mere exclusivity. Unparalleled ISO performance, a 9 fps full resolution shooting rate, exceptional color and image quality, a superb monitor, robust construction, outstanding build […]

Sigma DP1 coming March 25? – PDNPulse

The Sigma DP1, a compact digital camera with a “full-frame” sensor, has had an even longer gestation period. It was first unveiled at Photokina 2006 in Germany to much buzz but has since been relegated to the mystical realms of the Sasquatch, Loch Ness Monster, and rumor-filled online photo forums. Was the quest for a […]

Canon imagePROGRAF iPF6100 Review

: I chose the iPF6100 for testing because for me it represents the sweet spot in the line. For many fine art photographers a 24″ printer is about as big as can be handled outside of a commercial print studio, and also is able to produce prints that are usually as large as one needs. […]

1200 f 5.6 – APhotoADay News

: B&H is selling a used Canon Super Telephoto 1200mm lens for $99,000. As for image quality, even wide open it’s quite lovely. Stopped down to f/8 and f/11 it’s actually quite remarkable. How remarkable? From midtown Manhattan we were able to read the street signs on the corner of JFK Boulevard East and 43rd […]

Reading Tea Leaves-PMA 2008

Things are still silly in the digicam field with shirt pocket cameras now up to about 12MP. This means 2.8 micron pixels (or maybe even less) which if this trend continues will begin to impinge on the size of the upper wave lengths of light. Stuffing photons into these little holes is going to start […]

Epson Stylus Pro 11880 Review

: We all like looking over the hill to see what’s coming next. With the exponential rate of change which technology now gives us, having a sense of what’s coming next can also be a form of economic sense, as it is not at all uncommon for one to buy what appears to be the […]

Leica M8: A Camera for Life [Leica M8] »

: Leica fanatics are different than regular people, so it’s no surprise Leica’s taking an entirely different—but brilliant—approach with its M8: It’s everlasting. Instead of dropping an M9 or M10, Leica is offering substantial upgrades to the M8 itself—mechanical and digital components, so it’ll slowly evolve into a new camera. The first package is a […]

: Already a manufacturer of CMOS imaging sensors for professional digital SLRs, Sony announced this morning at PMA 2008 in Las Vegas that it too would introduce a pro digital SLR this year. The new digital SLR — which is simply being called “Flagship” at this point — will use a new 24.6-megapixel full-frame “Exmor” […]
