Camera Bag Review: Gura Gear Kiboko

Mike Hagen (Mike_Hagen)

Camera bags and photographers. Sometimes I think we go together like peanut butter and chocolate. Other times, I think we go together like oil and water. Picking the right camera bag for every situation is pretty near impossible and that’s why I have an entire closet devoted to just camera bags. Small ones. Big ones. Medium ones. Waist bags. Shoulder bags. Backpacks. Black. Green. Yellow. Read more...

Thanks to Nikonians and Ilford for asking/allowing me to review/test some very nice photo paper.  I hope my review and data will be helpful to not only Ilford, but also potential customers looking for great printing paper for their photos, both pros and home printing photographers. I am an American living in Germany with an Event & Studio Photography business.  Primarily, I shoot Equestrian sports, but I do not limit my self to a single sport or subject. Read more...

What is the best memory card for you?

Hayo Baan (hrbaan)

While at first this may seem like a silly question (just get the cheapest and fastest card available), choosing the card that's best for you is in fact not a straightforward thing... First there's size to consider. Bigger is better, right? Well, not particularly. Read more...

My first serious computer monitor was a LaCie Electron Blue IV, an incredibly heavy, blue beast. It served me well for many years, until recently. It can no longer reach the desired brightness, so I had to start looking for an alternative. Read more...

Review: Think Tank Modulus Belt System & Airport Addicted Bag

Jason Odell (DrJay32)

Most of the Nikonians I have met have a “dirty little secret”. We are bag junkies. While we can go on ad nauseum as to why a certain lens or camera is superior for a given application, we become baffled when confronted with how to store and transport our gear. Let’s face it, if there were a “perfect” bag solution out there, we’d all own it by now. Read more...

Tamron SP AF 90mm F/2.8 Di Macro 1:1 Model 272E Lens Review

Paul Fisher (Paul_Fisher)

Since 1979, Tamron has produced 90mm macro lenses whose optical quality has rivaled the extraordinary Micro-Nikkors. Some photographers claim to have preferred the Tamron over the Nikkor because of its superior handling of out-of-focus areas ("Bokeh"). More recently, Tamron have introduced a range of “digitally integrated” Di lenses. Read more...
