Sony DSCRX10/B Cybershot A Bridge Camera For DSLR Fans
Sony DSCRX10/B Cybershot
by Ernest Lilley

Sony's 20.3 megapixel DSCRX10/B may be part of their Cybershot line, with an integrated lens and an electronic viewfinder, but it might just make serious photographers consider an all-in-one camera for all that it offers, including a DSLR feel in a semi-compact format.

Panasonic LUMIX DMC-LX7K 10.1 MP Digital Camera with 7.5x Intelligent zoom and 3.0-inch LCD -  Black Panasonic's LX7: Shoots Eyes Wide Open With f1.4 Leica Lens

There are a lot of things to like about this advanced single lens digital...which we can't bring ourselves to call a "point-and-shoot," but the most important is the excellent F1.4-2.3 Leica DC Vario SUMMILUX 24mm Wide Angle lens, which provides low light capability as well as the shallow depth of field so hard to achieve in cameras with small sensors. That and a ton of advanced features make this a great go-to camera for pros and creative amateurs alike.

THE FINE ART OF HIGH GLOSS PRINTING
by David Em

Ilford and Breathing Color introduce two new ultra-high-gloss papers for photographers and artists, and their new paper solves a puzzle that's faced our printing guru ever since he gave up the darkroom: Does digital printing mean someone is going to take your Cibachrome away? (Apologies to Paul Simon)

ILFORD GALERIE PRESTIGE GOLD FIBRE SILK
by David Em

Digital technology has created a cornucopia of photographic printing options. Affordable world-class printers from Epson, Canon, and HP reproduce digital photographs with superb color, tone, resolution, and longevity. Of course, there's a lot more to making a great print than simply pressing buttons. You've got to know what you're doing, and you need to match your printer with the right print media to achieve the results you're shooting for.

ADOBE PHOTOSHOP CS6
by David Em

Last year Adobe announced an ambitious point and version update schedule for their various Creative Suite packages. Quick on the heels of the announcement, the company released point release 5.5 that beefed up programs like InDesign and Dreamweaver, but left their flagship application Photoshop untouched. Now comes Creative Suite 6, which upgrades Photoshop big time.

by Charles Mohapel

Back in early November 2011, Canon Inc. and Canon U.S.A., Inc. announced the EOS C300, an all new interchangeable lens digital cinema camera that would compete with the kind of affordable cameras favored by indie filmmakers, cameras such as the RED Scarlet, Arri Alexa, and Sony PMW-F3. On Thursday February 16, 2012, Canon stopped in Montreal, Canada to showcase both versions of the EOS C300, as well as the EOS-1D X, the new flagship of the their professional DSLR line.

by Charles Mohapel

Now that the new Nikon D4 has replaced their D3S as Nikon's second tier professional DSLR, we wonder when they plan on replacing the D3X as their top-of-the-line professional DSLR. Meanwhile we'd like to check out their new AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G lens on the D4.

Though I haven't been to a PhotoPlus Expo recently, I've certainly been putting my cameras through their paces and keeping busy running the Alexandria Photography Workshop, and TechRevu continues to cover what's new in digital photography, so it seems like it's time for me to take a trip up to the Big Apple and see what's in the pipeline. You can look forward to a photo essay and product report from the site.
