If you’re a photographer, I’m sure someone asked you the dreaded “What camera do you use?” question at least ten times. We’ve all been there, and we’ve all complained about it. But a recent video made me realize that it’s time we got over it. In this article, I’ll explain my point of view and why we shouldn’t feel so offended and bitter when someone assumes it’s our camera that takes great photos.

Amazon shoppers order expensive cameras, receive cat food and shoes instead
Several expensive cameras purchased on Amazon have magically turned into cat food, according to furious shoppers. And it’s not just cameras – it appears that some sellers have been scamming people for all kinds of expensive items, like smartphones and computer parts.

Shooting photos with a brand new original Nintendo Gameboy Camera and Printer from 1998
The Gameboy Camera seems to have picked up in popularity as of late. We’ve seen a plethora of projects using one over the last few years, partly just to show off how beautifully terrible the images are, sometimes just to push the limits of the tech to see what it can actually do, even shooting Formula 1 and eclipses with it. We’ve seen 3D printed adapters to mount EF lenses on it, colour trichromatic photography and even AI-enhanced colour photography.
What we haven’t seen yet, though, is an unboxing of a brand new Gameboy camera and printer, direct from 1998 and stored… well, who knows where for the last 24 years waiting to be taken out of its precious packaging. But that’s what we see here in Vuhlandes newest video as he opens it up, figures out what it can do and even tries to shoot a basketball game with it.

How do you hold your camera? These are the best and the worst ways to do it
When shooting in low light conditions at slower shutter speeds, it-s best to use a tripod. But more often than not, you’ll need to shoot handheld.

But there sure are some wrong ways that will end up with motion blur in your photos. You want to avoid those, and Chris Nichols of DPReview will share some useful tips and tricks for this.

Samsung sued over “shattering” cameras in the Galaxy S20
It appears Samsung is having exploding phone issues again, although it’s not the battery this time, but the camera. US-based attorneys at Hagens Berman have filed a class-action lawsuit against Samsung over defective Samsung Galaxy S20 devices that experience the camera glass shattering unexpectedly during what they describe as normal use.
The lawsuit was filed on April 27th in the US District Court of the District of New Jersey and accuses Samsung of fraud, breach of warranty and violations of a number of consumer-protection laws.
