Old prints and negatives deteriorate with time, especially if they’re kept in damp conditions. Those boxes of pictures in your attic could be in a worse state than you imagine, and the sooner you get them scanned in as digital images, the better.
Although it’s “just another” compact camera, the Canon G1 X is more exciting than most because, at 1.5 inches (18.7x14mm), its 14.3-megapixel CMOS sensor is only a fraction smaller than the average SLR’s. Also, its pixels are the same size and design as those on the Canon 600D’s sensor. This immediately puts the G1 X ahead of the game and makes it capable of producing high-quality images.
People often ask us what the “best” camera is. While you can debate the merits of various pieces of hardware, when it comes down to it, the best camera is the one you have with you when you want to take a photograph. Which, for a lot of people, ends up being an iPhone. The iPhone camera is great for snapshots, but what if you could use all the glass from your SLR to push your iPhone to even greater creative possibilities? For that, you’ll need Turtleback’s iPhone SLR Mount.
The iPhone 4 makes a pretty great pocketable camera, but as awesome as it can be, the lens leaves a lot to be desired -- until now. If you’ve got some spare cash and SLR lenses waiting to be put to use, one accessories manufacturer has just the gadget for you.
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.
