In fact, the cameras that hold the title of not only the most used, but also the second, third, and fourth most used cameras on the popular photo sharing website might grab your attention. Chris Gampat from The Phoblographer, did some researching on the matter recently and discovered that the usual suspects from Canon or Nikon don’t even make the list until the 5th place slot. Do you know which camera model holds all the glory? If you guessed Apple, pat yourself on the back. The iPhone 5, the iPhone 5s, iPhone 4s, and iPhone 4 round out the top four, respectively, while Canon finally makes it on to the board with their Rebel T3i claiming fifth. [Read more...]

13 Things Your Camera Wishes You Knew

Your sad, old camera will start to treat you better if you learn to take care of it.Every time I go to my nephews’ soccer games and see all the parents with their cameras on “green mode”, or attend a sporting event and see spectators using their flash from a quarter mile away, it makes me grit my teeth.  It’s all I can do to stop from walking up to them and fixing their camera for them.

13 Things Your Camera Wishes You Knew

This morning, I got to thinking.  If it is painful for ME to see these cameras being mistreated, imagine how the camera feels!  Canons have feelings too, ya know?  (Nikons happen to have more, but let’s not get into that).

The readers of this site tend to be a bit more knowledgeable about photography than your average shutter snapper, so I wrote this one with the more advanced photographer in mind. [Read more...]

Nikon Offering Free Repair Services for the D600, In or Out of Warranty

Nikon D600 - Front

Just earlier today, a technical advisory was posted on Nikon’s website for the D600.

Recently, Nikon has been gaining controversy after it got itself caught in America’s favorite pastime of suing. Attorneys at law firms such as Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein have been collecting complaints about the camera manufacturer due to allegations of a defective product; in this case, the D600 model.

Sony Unveils the “World’s Best Mobile Camera” with the Announcement of the Xperia Z2

Earlier today, the 2014 Mobile World Congress took place in Barcelona, and it came packed with quite a few noteworthy stories. Nokia announced the immediate release of not one, but three Android-powered mid-range smartphone models; HTC announced its next entry to the mid-range Desire, sporting a 13MP camera; Samsung – well – remained Samsung with its overall minor update to the Galaxy S line (but hey – maybe that’s just my inner design critic getting frustrated at how much hasn’t changed about the phone’s look). Even if the Galaxy S5′s been grabbing most of the headlines for MWC, Sony still ended up bringing itself a good amount of attention with the products it unveiled today,

Out of them, the Xperia Z2 was what garnered the most interest. Sony’s latest addition to the Xperia line comes in bold colors, as well as bold promises; the waterproof phone packs a 20.7 megapixel camera, one which the company is proudly calling the “world’s best mobile camera”.

The Nikon D3 Camera Lunch Box

First, a word of warning: do not try this at home…

So, the word on the street is that the new (or not so new anymore) Nikon D3 is as bullet proof as an M1 Abrams tank. Apparently, this guy from youtube decided to see if the rumors are correct.

This is not a video for the faint of heart. Nor is it a video to watch if you just ate. It might induce involuntary gagging when seeing the abuse this camera takes.

One more thing, do not try this with the little sister – the Nikon D70 – you will have to eat the camera.

After much ado, here is The Video Link.

If that was not enough, watch the Nikon D3 Drop Test. (The video freezes in the middle, but the point is well made).

Any comments about the truthfulness of those flicks will be greatly appreciated. (No, I did not get a huge lump of cash, and No, I am not buying one of those anytime soon)
