In episode #138 of the Image Doctors podcast, Rick and Jason review the revised Lowepro Street and Field (S&F) modular system, a major update to a system that's been around since 1998.

Lowepro Classified Sling 220 AW review

The SlingShot models are built around the teardrop silhouette of traditional outdoor wilderness photo backpacks. The Sling models however have a sleek rectangular shape and come in two sizes. The larger Classified Sling 220 AW is the subject of this review. Read more...

Review Epson Stylus Pro 3880

Ernesto Santos (esantos)

When I first heard that Epson was about to introduce a desktop printer in the 17 inch-wide category and after reviewing the specifications I was a little puzzled. At the time I owned Epson’s other 17 inch printer, the 4000 Stylus Pro. What made me skeptical was that the 4000 was the first and only (at the time) pro-line printer in the Epson line that allowed for both matte black and photo black inks to be installed simultaneously.

Markins M10/M20 Ball Heads Review

Darrell Young (DigitalDarrell)

A ball head is a ball head -- right? I used to think so! I've always had the attitude that it really doesn't matter what ball head you use, since all it does is clamp the camera in the position you want. I figured any ball head that was big enough to handle the weight was good, and all that really matters is the price. Read more...

Epson Perfection V750-M Pro Scanner review

Martin Turner (Martin Turner)

At less than the price of a Nikon 35mm transparency scanner, the Epson 750 offers almost equally good scans from negatives or slides up to large format, as well as excellent A4+ scans from prints or graphic originals. This is a scanner which fits very well into a graphic design studio, with smooth, even and (relatively) rapid performance. Read more...

The Nikon SU-4 Review

J. Ramon Palacios (jrp)

The SU-4 is a small gadget with a powerful punch. More than just a simple slave unit, this SU-4 is a wireless remote TTL flash control. A relatively inexpensive unit that takes on the duties of a fully armed studio lightning system. Not only it is capable of receiving the signal to fire, but also the signal on when to stop.

Lensbaby 2.0 Review II

Jason Odell (DrJay32)

I first heard about the Lensbaby about a year ago. I was casually surfing photo-related sites on the Internet. Strange, I thought — an accessory that deliberately causes images to be out of focus! With all talk these days about high-speed autofocus lenses with the most refined optics and technology, the Lensbaby represents a technological leap—backwards! And that, my friends, was refreshing.

A while back in an issue of the American Outdoor Photographer magazine, I saw a notice for a new brand of hard case for photo gear. The product, called Storm Case, is what appeared to be a possible rival to the well-established Pelican brand. After going to the Storm Case site, I was fairly impressed by their cases and what the said that they offered. Read more...
