Xzibit wishes he came up with this one. If you want to make your iPhone 4 work with a tripod, but think those overpriced tripod and case combos are too pass, then how about ripping apart a SLR camera to make a nice case for your iPhone? That seems perfectly normal to us, and that's exactly what one iPhone 4 owner did.
Do you like your digital cameras raw? Well, good, because Apple is serving up a cold dish of compatibility updates. Digital Camera Raw Compatibility Updates 3.3 was released today for Aperture and iPhoto users.
A wise person once said, “You get what you pay for,” and in the case of Canon’s budget-friendly Pixma iP2702, truer words were never spoken. If you’re looking for an affordable way to print day-to-day snapshots, the $50 iP2702 might be just the ticket--provided that your expectations are in keeping with the limitations of a low-cost, single-function printer.
Canon’s EOS 7D is a radical departure for the company’s popular EOS
family of cameras. It slots in between the prosumer 50D and the
full-frame, pro-level 5D Mark II--but a lot of tantalizing
functionality lurks within its magnesium-alloy bodywork. Just don’t
make the assumption that the 7D is a low-cost alternative to the 5D
Mark II--it’s really an entirely different kind of camera. One caveat
is that the APS-C–sized sensor is smaller (like in the 50D), so there’s
a 1.6x field-of-view adjustment needed for any focal length you use,
unlike the full-frame 5D Mark II. But it’s the 7D’s advanced features
and affordable price that make it a compelling shooter.
Most photographers would now agree that proficiency with photo-editing
software is also a critical skill. So we asked six photographers to
tell us about their favorite image processing applications and add-ons
as well as share their best tips for making and digitally refining
Coke versus Pepsi. Mac versus PC. Canon versus Nikon. Among these great
rivalries, we can only pick out one clear winner. (Here’s a hint: It’s
not the colored sugar water.) In the latest Canon-versus-Nikon
entry-level digital SLR (single-lens reflex) battle, both cameras score
hits against the other.
Apple's Mac OS X v10.6 was released two weeks ago and for most of us the
transition from Leopard to Snow Leopard went by without incident.
However, we've spent part of the last few weeks scouring Apple's discussion
boards and support site for solutions to problems people have been
reporting with the upgrade.
When Canon announced the 5D back in 2005, it was a game-changer. The
camera was the first full-frame DSLR--meaning that its CMOS sensor is
the same size as a frame of 35mm film, about 60 percent larger than the
sensors in most DSLRs--in a standard sized SLR body, all for just a bit
more than $3,000. Three years later, its successor, the 5D Mark II,
pushes the image-quality bar higher and the cost of entry lower.
