Do You Use Any Aliases?

Is the anti-aliasing filter still necessary or even useful in modern, high-resolution digital camera systems? Several manufacturers are eliminating them from their highest-resolution models.

Digital image sensors consist of a grid of light-sensitive photodiodes (pixels). When you make an exposure, each pixel receives a certain amount of light—a certain number of photons—according to the brightness of the portion of the scene being photographed that's focused at that pixel. Inherent in this process is the…

So Retro!

The proliferation of high-end, back-to-the-future, retro-design cameras has style as well as substance
By The Editors
"Retro"-look serious cameras are hot today. Besides the nostalgia factor, they provide their users with a sense of style. We wouldn't trade the technology of our recent DSLRs and mirrorless cameras for that of the old 35mm film cameras, much less earlier digital cameras, but there's something to be said…

Can A Pro Go Mirrorless?

Like the transition from Speed Graphics to 35mm film and SLRs, today’s pros might consider making a full switch to a mirrorless system.

In an increasingly fragmented world where it's difficult to maintain focus and attention for more than a nanosecond, it can pay to simplify. In the average pro's camera bag, you'll find a DSLR, a smaller backup DSLR, four to six lenses, a few strobes, spare batteries, a couple of lighting…

Battle Of The DSLRs

Everyone aspires to a top-of-the-line, super-trick, über-pro DSLR, but what are you really buying, and can a mid-level model actually give you better images?
By The Editors
Back in the film days, the owner of an entry-level 35mm SLR could use the same film and the same lenses as the owner of a pro 35mm SLR, and thus entry-level and pro models weren't divided so much by image quality as by construction, features and add-ons. The pro…

Diving Deep Into HDSLRs

So you bought an HDSLR to add motion to your repertoire. Now what? We’ll help you navigate the technology to give you a running start.
By The Editors
The first video-capable DSLRs were aimed at photojournalists, but were quickly adopted by wedding photographers and even serious filmmakers. The large sensors (relative to those found in pro camcorders) allow for cinematic limited depth of field and thus effective selective-focus shots. HDSLRs are much smaller and far less costly than…
