Gadling Gear Review: Nikon 1 J2 Digital Camera

Gadling Gear Review: Nikon 1 J2 Digital Camera Nov 5th, 2012 at 8:00AM: Over the past couple of years, one of the fastest growing segments of the digital camera market has been the compact interchangeable lens systems. These cameras feature the small bodies of a traditional point-and-shoot with the ability to swap lenses like a DSLR, giving them plenty of versatility without adding undue size or weight. Options from Sony, Panasonic and Samsung have been extremely...

On Traveling Without The Big DSLR Camera

On Traveling Without The Big DSLR Camera Jul 23rd, 2012 at 10:00AM: I own a Nikon D200 with some extra stuff, including a 28-300 telephoto lens that weighs a ton. I have a Panasonic Lumix (that's what I used to shoot this picture of dusk in the Serengeti), and an iPhone. I have a video camera, too (the only thing on my list of gear that I did not pay for – I got the video camera in a promotional scheme two years ago). I've traveled with all of this stuff...

The Sardine Can Camera from Lomography

The Sardine Can Camera from Lomography Apr 10th, 2012 at 11:30AM: When I first started taking photos, I used this stuff called "film." You loaded it into your camera, fiddled with a bunch of settings and then pressed the shutter and prayed. You didn't get to look at your pictures right away or tweet them to your friends or post them to your blog – oh ho ho no, you first had to take the film to a place that knew what to do with it. In the '90s, you could...

Gadling Gear Review: Quiksilver Shutter Speed Camera Pack

Gadling Gear Review: Quiksilver Shutter Speed Camera Pack Feb 10th, 2012 at 9:00AM: In 2011, I had the spectacular good fortune to go on two trips that fit the "once in a lifetime" category. One was to Antarctica, the other to Tanzania. Both were the kind of trips where you want to take your best photo gear, weight be damned, because, dude, how likely are you to be twice in Penguinistan or Elephantlandia? So schlep my gear I did, my heavy Nikon, the big telephoto, a video camera,...

Gadling gear review: Nikon CoolPix AW100 camera

Gadling gear review: Nikon CoolPix AW100 camera Feb 6th, 2012 at 8:00AM: Buying a digital camera is no easy task these days. As cameras have grown in popularity, the market has become flooded with dozens of models, all with a dizzying array of features and specs, and few ways to distinguish one from the next. Aside from minor variations in shape and color, most of them all look about the same, and it is difficult to know which one is the best fit for each of our...

Gadling Gift Guide: Tech for Travel

Gadling Gift Guide: Tech for Travel Dec 8th, 2011 at 9:00AM: Travel has certainly changed in the last decade and most of us would probably agree that those changes haven't always been for the best. Fortunately, technology has been one of the bright spots over the past few years however, and we now have a plethora of options for entertainment, staying connected, and getting work done while on the go. Here are a few great gift ideas for the techie traveler on...

Travel Photo Tips: using a 50mm F1.4 lens to redefine low-light shooting

Travel Photo Tips: using a 50mm F1.4 lens to redefine low-light shooting Feb 15th, 2011 at 11:00AM: If there's one question I'm asked more than any other when it comes to DSLRs, it's usually one dealing with low-light shooting. Being able to effectively capture a scene in dimly lit situations (or at night altogether) is one of the toughest things to do in photography. Even if you have a flash, you have to be careful when firing it if you don't want to simply blow everything out and ruin the...

Travel Photo Tips: What is ISO, and how does it affect my pictures?

Travel Photo Tips: What is ISO, and how does it affect my pictures? Dec 30th, 2010 at 10:00AM: ISO. Three little letters which stand for International Organization for Standardization (not exactly thrilling) and make a monumental difference in the outcome of images, particularly in low-light scenarios. It's one of the most prominently featured specifications of any modern digital camera, and it's one single aspect that can make a night-and-day difference in the outcome of your shots....

Camera travels 1,100 miles by sea... and turtle

Camera travels 1,100 miles by sea... and turtle Jun 16th, 2010 at 2:15PM: I dropped my waterproof camera into twenty feet of ocean water once while snorkeling off the coast of Mexico. As I watched my camera drift slowly to the rocky bottom I knew I couldn't hold my breath long enough to retrieve it. Luckily for me a free diver was in our party and rescued my electronic treasure. The thought of a losing a camera can be somewhat sickening. Once gone most never expect to...

Nikon Coolpix S8000 review - 10x wide zoom in an ultra compact point and shoot

Nikon Coolpix S8000 review - 10x wide zoom in an ultra compact point and shoot Apr 8th, 2010 at 10:00AM: The new Nikon Coolpix S8000 is another new camera in the 2010 Nikon lineup. Last week we showed you the new P800 ultra-zoom, but travelers looking for a more compact camera may be interested in the S8000. The S8000 is currently the slimmest 10x optical zoom camera on the market. As always, we'll open with the basics - inside the S8000 is a 10x wide angle NIKKOR ED glass lens. The camera...

Ultra-zoom in a travel friendly package - Gadling reviews the new Nikon Coolpix P100 Mar 29th, 2010 at 11:00AM: This is a great time to be in the market for a new travel friendly camera. Almost weekly, new cameras are revealed that add more of the stuff travelers can benefit from. In this review, I'll introduce you to the newest from Nikon - the Coolpix P100. The P100 is an "ultra zoom" - which means its zoom lens packs quite a punch. The basics are all pretty impressive too - 10.3 megapixels,...

Look good in your swimming suit photos

Jan 9th, 2009 at 2:00PM: It's happened to all of us. You're lounging at the beach or by the pool, feeling all warm and glamorous. You want to remember that feeling forever, so you have a picture taken. Then, you look at the picture and realize you hate yourself. Carson Kressley, who I had the privilege of interviewing over on StyleList, has put together the above video to help you look good in your swimming suit photos....

The Nikon P1

The Nikon P1 Mar 11th, 2006 at 6:03PM: As an avid photographer, I love to keep an eye on the newest advances in camera technology. I moved over to digital as most early adopters did a few years ago, but have kept my film camera around, a Nikon, just in case. It's actually weird to think of that camera as a beater-upper, as I do now. When I bought it, it was top of the line. Anyway, I'd like to point out a new camera for the...
