I’m going to start with a preemptive “No, not because the iPad 2 has a camera.” because, let’s face it, the camera in the iPad is crap. You’re better off using the camera in your phone in a pinch if just for awkward hold-ability reasons. And I guess I should also clearly state that it’s not because the screen is better. The iPad 2 retains the same 720p resolution display with ‘magical’ oliophobic coating that ‘magically’ exaggerates finger marks. Now that that’s out of the way, let’s begin at the beginning.

Start with a good prosumer dSLR…say…the Olympus E-620. Now let’s make it smaller. First, let’s get rid of the mirror and prism. That cuts a good chunk off the height and with. Heck, why do we even need a viewfinder at all? Also, let’s forego an in-built flash to make sure it’s as small as […]
First let me be clear: I love film and have no plans to cease using film until the last frame of the last roll on Earth has been exposed. I enjoy the 100% hands-on nature of it, the texture of it, and the fact that the portraiture clients I have value it (which, of course, […]
Perspective, in terms of photography, is the spacial relationship between the lens and subject. Put simply, it is “Where is the camera?” versus “Where is the subject?”.
