Now is as good a time as any to hone that photography hobby. What's that? You don't have a camera? Well then, a handful of discounted models await on the other side of the jump that could have you eager to dive in. There's a point-and-shoot, a retro design and a pair of pro-grade DSLRs to cover a

It's November and Canon's new 21 megapixel shooter, the EOS 5D Mark II, is now available. But, for the moment at least, it looks like you need to be a resident of China to
