New AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G Lens

Many photographers will tell you that getting a good prime lens is one of the best (and most cost-effective) investments you can make to improve your DSLR photography.  Whilst this might largely be true, up until now Nikon users have been at a disadvantage compared to Canon users, as their cheapest prime lenses did not...

Nikon D5100 Preview

Nikon D5100 Preview

After discontinuing the Nikon D5000 at the end of last year, Nikon fans looking for an advanced consumer-level DSLR to compete with the Canon EOS 550D/T2i or 600D/T3i have been left wanting. Thankfully the wait is nearly over and the all-new Nikon D5100 is due to start shipping later this month, but is it enough...

Apple iPad 2: A tool for Photographers

The Apple iPad has changed the way people do all sorts of things, some of them quite worthy and highbrow, others just for fun. At times when using one around the house I have wondered whether it can justify itself as anything more than just a handy device for browsing the internet on the sofa,...

Canon EOS 1100D/Rebel T3 Preview

Canon EOS 1100D/Rebel T3 Preview

We have been stung by false rumours and reports of a new entry-level Canon Digital SLR several times, but the Canon EOS 1100D (or Rebel T3) is now definitely on its way. Originally we had thought the successor to the hugely popular but ageing EOS 1000D would arrive in the form of a 2000D, but 1100D...

Polaroid PoGo ZINK Printer

Polaroid PoGo ZINK Printer

Is it a bit late to review something that’s been out for nearly two years? Maybe. But until this week I’d completely forgotten that Polaroid had ever released their instant ZINK (Zero INK) Printer! Luckily, I was reminded by Matt and Polaroid’s somewhat OTT release of their new ZINK range. I still probably wouldn’t have...

Mac App Store: Our App Picks for Photographers

Mac App Store: Our App Picks for Photographers

It might seem like an age ago now, but it was only October 20th last year when Steve Jobs took to the stage and announced that the Mac App Store would launch within 90 days. The store only launched on January 6th, but already has a healthy range of 1000 apps available.

We expect quite a few product announcements in the next few days as the Consumer Electronics Show (or CES) in Las Vegas gets underway, but nipping in just before the floodgates open our eye was caught by the intriguing Samsung SH100.
