intro/beginner DSLR
details
What do you guys think is the best intro level/ beginner DSLR out there? I've heard good things about Nikon and Canon. I've looked into this several times over the years and never felt I had enough information to take the plunge.

What you think about the carbon fiber tripod?
details
Is carbon fiber tripod is less stronger than aluminum tripod?
I want to buy tripod for traveling purpose and I think carbon fiber is prefect for traveling purpose due to its lightweight. Have heard about proaim carbon fiber tripod stand of 75 mm bowl head with fluid head.

Canon EOS Rebel SL1 (100D)

I love my Canon Rebel SL1
details
I am not a photographer, but I'm marrying one. She's a Canon girl. She's got the all the lenses she needs for her superpowered 5D Mark Something.
I'm more practical. I bought the lightest, smallest, and frankly - the best DSLR I could find. And I have access to the lenses I could need.
I'm still learning, and apparently my camera "Isn't great, but isn't bad, in the dark".
I'm trying to figure out what the point on non-zoom lenses are. I see there's a $99 50mm "pancake" lens... does anyone know why...

And so was this. (Overlooking Hong Kong)
I just returned from 3 weeks gallivanting through Southeast Asia that featured hanging out with elephants, drinking tasty beverages, and eating my way through various exotic cuisine, amongst other things.
In addition to all of this, I also was lucky enough to... Read more →

The best digital camera in auto mode?
details
My wife and I are very excited to be having a baby, and I'm starting to think it would be nice to have something a step up from our Canon Powershot S100. Don't get me wrong, I think it's a fantastic camera, but it's still just a point and shoot.
So we're looking at digital cameras, but we have a requirement. See, we're having a kid, I run my own business, and she's starting a new job. We are not blessed with an abundance of time, and frankly we're not even that interested in becoming photography... Read more →

RX100 M3: New wrappers for 1080p video, will it work with iOS?
details
http://i.imgur.com/sXJBxcS.jpg
This sad puppy at 1920 x 1080 resolution feels the same way I do that I can't transfer 1080p video from my RX100 to my iPad.
The RX100 M1 and M2 both recorded 1080p video, however Sony decided to encode video in their AVCHD format. This meant that if I recorded video on the go at true 1080p, then I wouldn't be able to import or edit it on my iPad (iOS doesn't support AVCHD).
In order to get video to record in a format that the iPad could read (e.g., MP4), the RX100... Read more →

Virtual horizons on smartphones
details
We all know that smartphones today have built in accelerometers, gyroscopes and magnetometers. With all these orientation-aware stuff packed in, why can't any phone manufacturer enable a feature like a 'virtual horizon' on the camera viewfinder? Most DSLRs and mirrorless cameras have this feature today.
