Here you’ll find the latest news on camera equipment and accessories in digital photography along with imaging news and other photography related items. As digital photography is gaining greater acceptance amongst the amateur photography fraternity, and it tends to forgive mistakes more easily than traditional film based photography (i.e. bad photos can be deleted from your memory card at no cost whereas badly exposed film frames will cost you money), this news page does deal exclusively with digital equipment so try one of the other pages if you’re looking for topics related to film-based cameras and equipment.
