Review: Nikon Coolpix S8000

Some compact cameras come with a punch that justifies their status as the men among the boys. Nikon's Coolpix S8000 stands out as a compact camera that edges towards the prosumer class of cameras while remaining true to its own.

A Mo(nu)ment in Time!

Every monument has its own story to tell. For the ones interested in history, monuments are the perfect places to amble around, peering into nooks and corners, marveling at how you can be one with the past, finally! That's when the photographer (especially one with a liking for history) comes in with his set of problems. It's a little tough to capture a monument in all its glory but here, we try to break it down for you to make the joy of shooting your favourite relic from the past exciting and worthwhile!

Prosumers vs DSLRs

With the advent of digital cameras, every category and segment in the digital world is constantly re-invented.

The AAA Rechargeable Battery Shootout

Last month, we took a look at AA rechargeable batteries that are widely available in the market and pitted them against each other. The race was close and in the end, it was quite a challenge to differentiate between all the brands. This time, we take it a step further as we take a look at another segment of rechargeable batteries that are increasing in importance and usage- the AAA size rechargeable.

Teaching the Tots

I bet many among us have had a fixation with our fathers, uncles or older cousins' analogue SLR cameras in our childhood days. We remember how they held their Yashicas and the Minoltas close to their hearts as one of their most prized possessions, while we schemed ways of smuggling them out of the secret chambers of their cupboards. All for the joy of viewing the world through that tiny view finder!

In life, there's always a Plan A and then a Plan B. Plan B is where you sit back, relax and let life take its course. After all, that's what we all want, don't we; a simple plan? And then there's Plan A. This is when you really start discovering the world around you and by default, yourself. If you are Ali Rangoonwalla, there is no Plan B.

Pro-Profile: Simon Puschmann

A photographic journey that started back when he was only 16 years of age, Simon went to New Zealand as an exchange student with AFS, Auckland. He soon realised that he couldn't let this opportunity pass without having taken some decent photographs being in this beautiful country. Later, he went on to get formal training, the basics on exposure, developing and printing contact sheets at a photography course in Germany.
