Camera Review: Fujifilm FinePix REAL 3D W1

The Fujifilm FinePix REAL 3D W1 caught the attention of photo-enthusiasts all around for obvious reasons. It is the first camera to shoot 3D pictures. Fujifilm unveiled the prototype at Photokina ’08 in Germany and now we finally have our hands on the camera. The camera allows you to view your pictures without the use of 3D glasses via the rear display panel of the camera. The camera has a two lens system and two 10 megapixel sensors that can achieve a 3D stereoscopic effect.

Tips & Techs: The language of photography

If you are planning to buy a camera and start photography, be aware of complicated symbols, numbers and terminologies such as 10X, 6GB, f-16 and ISO 3200. These terms make all the difference in buying and operating the camera, if you know what they are and how they are used. Even to read a camera review, it is very important to know these symbols and values of numbers in order to understand the specification of the camera. Knowing the basic terminologies in photography will not only help you understand your camera, but will also improve your photography through complete understanding of a camera review. So, here is the basic photography terminology and its meaning, which will definitely help you understand those reviews more in depth.

Pro Profile - Legends: Kakubhai

A photographer who needs no introduction, a lensman that freezes time to capture surreal images, and moreover a legend par excellence. It was a very longtime that we had featured R L Kothari (popularly known as Kakubhai to the fraternity) on the pages of the magazine and one would wonder that after spending more than 50 years in the industry, would you be saturated by this industry. But to our surprise, everytime you meet a legend like him, you are completely amazed by his enthusiasm and zest for photography.

Shoot My City: Portraits of India

Visiting any part of the country and capturing images of the locals has much to offer your camera lens. Naturally it is always the attire, the colours and more importantly the character that the subject offers, which plays a big factor in approaching people for photographs. In our experience the best portraits can be got from locals dressed in their traditional attire. Urban Indians clad in formal shirts or denims just aren’t interesting enough. Because the flavour of the city and its roots can only come out once you see the vibrancy in the traditional attire that the subjects dawn. Whether it is a Kolhapuri sari clad housewife to a printed shirt worn Goan. There is something of everybody to shoot.

Camera review: Ricoh GR DIGITAL III

The Ricoh GR DIGITAL III comes as a successor model to the GRII which was launched back in November 2007. The GRIII saw its international launch in less than two years in July 2009. The GR lineup features in Ricoh’s professional range of digital cameras. The range has been defined for the capability of its lens that is suitable for macro and wide-angle shooting. The camera lens achieves a shooting aspect ratio of 1:1, which is one of the primary USP of the camera.
