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. Now, it’s heading into a class action suit already filed by attorneys of Zimmerman & Reed.[Read More…]
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”.
There is only one way that will allow you to take a ton of photography gear on a family trip and get away with it. Hook your family on photography.
My wife is a lost cause, so I decided to try and lure my 5 years old daughter into the photography dark side. I got her a camera. Specifically, the Vtech Kidizoom Plus Pink Digital Camera. Below you can find my reasons for getting this camera as well as my thoughts and review. I would also love to hear your thoughts about getting a camera for your little one, share them in the comments.
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)
