AAA Rechargeable Battery Shootout – Shootout

AAA rechargeable batteries are slowly replacing the AA batteries primarily due to their smaller size and their versatility at driving devices that require high power. While these batteries can be used to power simple equipments like mp3 players, television remote controls, torches etc., certain photography equipment manufacturers are also using these batteries to power their devices. We take the test across manufacturers to see which is the best AAA rechargeable battery in the market.

Making Multiple Exposure in Photoshop

Anybody who has played with analogue cameras of yore know what the "Double Exposure” is about. Multiple Exposure is perhaps the oldest camera trick in the book. While it can be done easily with analogue cameras (by exposing two compositions in one frame), try using the ‘bulb mode’ on digital cameras to make double exposure images. This month we go through how we can obtain the same results without any cameras, films or digital sensors, only with the help of an image editing software.

Monsoon Shutterbug

The monsoons are setting in across the country, with most parts already enjoying heavy showers and the rest seemingly on the brink of a downpour. And what does every avid photographer need in the rain? A good waterproof camera. Catering to your every photographic need, Asian Photography checked out two of the best and easy-to-use weatherproof cameras available in the market. The Panasonic Lumix DSC- FT3 and the Olympus µ 3000 were foremost on the list on waterproof digital cameras in the market. We put them to the test, exploring all the underwater features they boast of.

Samsung PL210

Samsung is traditionally not known to offer great imaging devices. This has changed in recent times though with the manufacturer becoming more aggressive on the IT front. Even earlier they have introduced products which are quite good. Personally I have been a big fan of the NV series, which if I am not mistaken were one of the first cameras to feature Synaptics touch screens, even before Samsung launched them in their phones. However, things are much different with the PL range where the focus seems to be more on the user interface, which is simple and basic combined with popular features.

Panasonic Lumix FT3

What is exciting about shockproof, dust resistant, waterproof camera is that they are absolutely forgiving. That’s right! If you are the ‘butterfingers’ kind– things inadvertently tend to slip or fly out of your hands, your friend here assures you, " There , there… don’t worry, I’m fine!” A solid, sturdy, feature-packed, intelligent companion (This may as well be a matrimonial advert) for adventure lovers and clumsy people alike, as we put the Panasonic Lumix FT3 to test this month to see what it has to offer.

Wespro DVX595

It isn’t often that we review video cameras/camcorders, especially since a full-fledged review of a video camera must include video samples and extensive tests in different situations. Unfortunately for us, showcasing video capabilities of the cameras isn’t quite possible in our magazine, but when the Wespro DVX595 came by for review, we had to make an exception.
