Konica Minolta 7D- Notes and Update

Today I did some basic maintenance servicing on both of my 7D's. I removed the focusing screens (no tool needed if you know how) and cleaned off  a couple of annoying dust specs/threads out of both viewfinders- both are perfectly clean now. I'm a stickler about my equipment being spotless, so it's nice to do this maintenance myself. I've also cleaned both of the 7D's exterior very thoroughly. More...

Canon Powershot G1X Review

Canon Powershot G1X Review
April 2012, Carl Garrard

Canon Powershot G1X Review- Every once in a while a camera will come my way that blows my ship right out of the water. I'm glad its a rare occurrence because if it weren't I couldn't make that statement with the same enthusiasm or honesty. So, is the Canon G1X one of those rare cameras? First, know that I am a huge G12 fan- up to today's date it has remained my favorite all round serious compact camera.

Nikon D700 Coming Down!

Prices on the Nikon D700 are looking real good for those who don't want/need all the newest gear but want a real solid DSLR body instead. The Nikon D700 is one of my favorite DSLRS that I have yet to own. It's still a very very solid all around camera that will do much of today's demanding tasks, and is quite a bargain on the current market both used and new alike. If I were shopping today for a full frame camera I'm likely to go the route of picking up a D700 myself. My short time spent with this camera was very positive and left a lasting impression of durability, handling, features, and performance.  Current prices on the D700 are below (there are used D700's too!).
