The Lume Cube and Why You Want It

I was a bit disappointed by the Photo Plus Expo this year in New York, because unlike last year, I did not find a lot of innovative products to be excited about. It seemed like the exhibit floor was full of the same things we had previously seen, except this...

Think Tank Airport Roller Derby Review

This is a review of the Think Tank Airport Roller Derby rolling camera bag. When I first saw that Think Tank had released a new 4 wheel camera bag, I was immediately curious. I had been using the Airport 4-Sight since it first came out and was very happy with...

Outex vs Shape Wave Waterproof DSLR Housings

We’re pleased to have one of Arizona’s top professional photographers, Dawn Kish, share her experience field testing two waterproof DSLR housings on a Grand Canyon raft adventure. Dawn is not only a regular shooter for magazines such as National Geographic Adventure and Arizona Highways, but a former river guide as...

Feisol Tournament Tripod and CB-50D Ballhead Review

When I first received the box with my Feisol Tournament Tripod and CB-50D head, it was unbelievably light. I almost wondered if they forgot something in the shipment. When I opened the box I found a very nice looking carbon fiber tripod and ballhead, but how would this super light...

Ruggard Legion 45 Messenger Bag Review

Like most photographers I have a few different gear bags and none of them seems to be the perfect solution to meet all of my needs. I further compound this problem by buying more gear, then kicking myself in the butt when my storage and transport issues get even more...

FotodioX WonderPana FreeArc Filter System Review

When it comes to ultra-wide-angle lenses, the Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8G is an outstanding choice, thanks to its top-notch corner-to-corner sharpness, amazing colors, and superb performance throughout the focal range. The lens has become a legend, outperforming most ultra wide-angle primes on the market in terms of resolution. As I have...

Nikon MB-D12 vs Vello BG-N7 for Nikon D810

The battery grip has to be the most overpriced accessory in photography. Think about it – it’s a plastic/composite case filled with batteries and a few switches – that’s it. How come a Nikon MB-D12 costs $399 and the batteries aren’t even included? The Nikon D3300 body costs a bit...

Nikon DK-17M Review

A fortunate event took place a couple of weeks ago - my wife Lola lost the eyecup from her Nikon Df camera (see our in-depth review of the Nikon Df). She wasn't sure how, but it most likely just got unscrewed while she was busy photographing a wedding. Why fortunate?...

Tomahawk Gimbal Attachment Review

Years ago after I purchased my first larger lens, a 300 f/2.8, I used it on a tripod with a ball head but it didn’t take me long to realize that this set up was less than ideal. If you shoot frequently with longer telephoto lenses, a gimbal head belongs...
