D-SLR Wars: Episode III
Resolution always will be a buzzword for digital cameras, but the current crop of professional-quality D-SLRs is about much more than advances in megapixel counts
The war of technology is raging with renewed vigor as the next installment of weapons has come to the battlefield. Product development, with its furious and relentless pace, has taken us one step further into the golden age of digital photography. But that step is now at least as much about features and new onboard technologies as it is about gains in resolution.

DPP Solutions: Infrared Camera Conversion
Infrared photography has been transformed from a finicky medium full of frustration and technical difficulty into a field where anyone can try to expand their portfolio and creativity
Infrared camera conversions are for the professional trying to obtain a unique look. The results give you an array of imaginative pictures from a portion of the spectrum of light that the human eye can't see. Through a conversion process, a standard D-SLR can be converted to a dedicated infrared camera that records images in that part of the spectrum. These conversions have become more popular as photographers have been attracted to the evocative results. Cameras can be converted to black-and-white or color infrared.

Comeback - Medium-Format Resurgence

Thanks to the steady rise in quality and popularity of 35mm-format digital SLRs, medium-format manufacturers have spent much of this decade fighting for their proverbial lives. Add to that the early limitations of high price and low portability in its digital systems, and medium-format seemed poised to disappear.

What's Next For Professional D-SLRs?
In the top echelon of digital cameras, we're seeing a change in priorities from the major manufacturers
In March, the photo industry made its annual pilgrimage to the Las Vegas Convention Center for the Photo Marketing Association trade show, PMA. This year at PMA, the story for professional photographers was particularly interesting. In recent years, the rumor mill prior to PMA had been working hard, as cameras, software, printers and accessories were being unveiled in droves. At the high end where professionals make a living, recent years have been particularly fruitful as nontraditional players have leapt into PMA, making big splashes with revolutionary products, and at the same time, the "usual suspects" of the industry have used the show to make their biggest product announcements.
