    Nikon D80 is a great choice to all photographic enthusiasts out there. This user-friendly and easy-to-handle camera is bundled with features that amazed me the moment I tried it.

The camera features i-TTL flash control that calculates flash exposure to provide better automatic flash balance. An effective replacement for Nikon D70, this camera meets the demands of the photographic pro with its continuous shooting at up to 3 frames per second.

  • Canon EOS-5D – A Full-frame Digital SLR for Pros

    Posted on July 27th, 2008 Elliot

    If you frequently take off on photography expeditions, I suggest that you go for the Canon EOS-5D, which is claimed to be one of the smallest and lightest full-framed digital SLR cameras.

    Every time I use it, it gives me clear, sharp, and resplendent images. Accommodating a good pixel count, it freezes your precious moments into top-notch, high-resolution images. With the EOS 5D’s solid features, high-end technologies, and a full-size 12.8 MP image sensor, shooting is always fast and flexible.

    With exceptional reproduction quality, cropping flexibility, and superior output capabilities, I can translate my vision into images perfectly. DSLRs allow swapping lenses and so does the Canon EOS-5D (supports all Canon EOS lenses, except EF-S series) – a boon for photographers who have to switch lenses depending on the job at hand. I also enjoy maximum control over my camera’s settings with the Canon EOS-5D 12.8 Megapixel Digital Camera. Significantly reduced power consumption of the camera helps to extend the battery life so that you do not have to worry about the battery dying out on you while shooting outdoors. The commendable “Picture Style” function takes care of everything required to deliver an exact replica of the original.

    The advanced magnesium alloy provides a rugged weather-resistant exterior in order to withstand the rigors of the elements and rough handling. Get detailed information about the Canon EOS-4D from 42nd Street Photo.

The flip animation mode is an amazing feature with which the user could string all their favorite moments and make them into short video clip. The image will be clear and sharp even if you unexpectedly shake the camera. I was astounded by the stunning quality pictures delivered by the camera’s superzoom lens, while focusing distant subjects. The sturdy grip of the DMC-FZ50K digital camera gives you a strong hold of the camera during trekking trips or any outdoor shooting. The hotshoe is a boon to the photographers while shooting at night, as they can add an external flash for unexceptional clarity.

  • Experts Choice – Canon EOS Rebel Digital XSi 450D

The Canon EOS Rebel Digital XSi 450D is an upgrade from Rebel XTi, which is surely good news for all Canonians.

  • Nikon D700 – Discover a New Territory

    Posted on July 23rd, 2008 Elliot

    My long search for a high-end camera at a comparatively low price ended with the Nikon D700. This affordable camera is also less in weight when compared to its D3 predecessors. More than just a new camera, it is equipped with rule breaking features that establish new benchmarks in digital image quality, speed, and unmatchable ISO performance.

  • What Will Happen to Film?

    Posted on July 22nd, 2008 Staff Writer

    While many might have been asking themselves this questions for the past few years, it seems that we’re getting to that point in time that VHS reached when DVD technology became widely available to, and far more affordable for, the general public. The fact is, film has fewer uses, extra processing steps and a lot more hastle to it than digital photography.

    Many of you might remember the days of film. You’d flip open the back of your camera, insert the roll, close the case, wind it, and snap away – until you got to the end that is. Then, 27 shots later, you would attempt to take one last picture to get your money’s worth, just in case there was extra room on the film. And it would always be a goofy picture, because if it didn’t come out, it wouldn’t be any great loss.

    Afterwards, you would take your film to the photo shop, or your local drug store’s photo lab, and decide between the regular development process, or the 24 hour deal for a few more dollars. The anticipation was part of the fun, but the real joy came in the sleeve you used to fill out your order, along with the original, developed film - was it double or single prints? Did you go for the 4×6 or the 5×7 size? Choices, choices. Of course, there was always that one that didn’t come out quite as you had hoped, or that snapshot of your brother-in-law was plagued by the dreaded red eye. Who remembers Kodak Advantix? We do.

    Yes, the days of film were fun while they lasted, but there comes a time when technology becomes to good for the previous generation. While many professionals and a few amateurs still prefer good ol’ fashion film, many have stepped into the digital age with their photography. The ease of use, the ability to delete a photo that wasn’t quite right, and the ever growing storage for thousands of pictures – these are just a few reasons that make digital photography the preferred medium in our modern society. Furthermore, the ability to print as many copies as you wish from your home computer, the option of emailing them to family members, the opportunity handing a CD or DVD disc full of pictures to all your friends, are all great ways of sharing that traditional film never allowed.

    We will never forget the days of film, but technology calls, along with convenience, and we at 42nd Street Photo answer that call.

  • Canon EOS-40D: Canon’s ‘prosumer’ digital SLR

    Posted on July 22nd, 2008 Elliot

    Canon digital cameras have always been a benchmark for excellent design, user friendly menu, and high-end technologies. For critical photographers who tend to scrutinize each camera for good functionalities, the EOS-40D from Canon is the answer. Once I acquainted myself with the technologically innovative Canon EOS-40D Digital SLR Camera, I was impressed with its upgraded, creative features, and performance. It delivers exceptional image quality with brilliant colors through the 10.1-megapixel APS-C-sized CMOS sensor and the newly developed DIGIC III image processor. 

    You will love the dedicated AF Start (AF-ON) button, which lets you execute autofocus option with your thumb. The rugged and versatile camera helps during low-light conditions by preserving even the subtle photographic details.

    This camera can shoot up to 6.5 frames per second, and it is the perfect device to capture any fast action. A durable magnesium alloy body with weatherproof design makes the EOS-40D ideal for outdoor photography.

    The EOS-40D has an edge over its predecessor, Canon EOS 30D due to its higher speed. The Canon EOS-40D gives you the same 10-megapixel resolution as the Rebel XTi but if you are into sports and wildlife photography the former would be a better choice in terms of its durability, faster user interface, better viewfinder, and so on. Find out more about the camera from 42nd Street Photo.

  • A Bonus to Photographers – Nikon D300

    Posted on July 22nd, 2008 Elliot

    I tried out the third-generation product of Nikon’s successful semi-pro series – The Nikon D300 12.3 Megapixel Digital Camera. When I saw the images on the generous 3-inch LCD screen, the clarity was such that I had never seen anything like it before in a digital capture.  Totally flexible and responsive, the Nikon D300 shoots any subject with great precision and unmatched quality.

    Equipped with intelligent Scene Recognition System that offers a faster and more accurate autofocus, it brings subjects into sharp focus and captures them flawlessly. No matter what the lighting condition is, the D300 controls the light intensity and exposure compensation to give you sharper images. You can adjust and customize individual parameters to click like a pro.

    Consumers can rely on the integrated dust reduction system to remove the dust settling on the 12.3-megapixel DX- format CMOS image sensor. Comprehensive and sturdy design allows you to explore limitless creative possibilities even in rough weather conditions. The Nikon 300 was awarded the “Camera of the Year 2007″ by the Editors of Popular Photography & Imaging. The Nikon D300 also received the prestigious TIPA Award in Best DSLR Expert category in 2008. I recommend this camera to digital photographers, who expect fine and detailed images. The Nikon D300 is in stock at 42nd Street Photo.

  • Consumer Vs. Expert Reviews of Digital Cameras

    Posted on July 16th, 2008 Staff Writer

    Most will agree that it is a good idea to read up on reviews of a camera before shelling out the cash for it, but it may be wise to look into who is actually writing the review. While consumer reviews can be a great source of information about a product, since generally speaking, the purchasee has first hand experience using that particular model, often times, lack of information leads to a less-than-satisfactory opinion.

    Let’s look at a good example of this, the Nikon D300. Here is a digital camera from a well known and established company, with an impressive range of shutter speeds, high-resolution screen, a myriad of options for shooting conditions, built in flash, long-lasting battery and continuous shooting at 6/second. Now, suppose this is all our reviewer knows about the camera. Suppose they used it for a few days on a family vacation, encountered a number of features they didn’t necessarily understand, and therefore decided they did not get their money’s worth. They might jump on Amazon.com, or wherever is was that they happened to pick up the digital camera, write a poor review and return the camera, never knowing about its 12.3-megapixel self-cleaning DX-format CMOS sensor, HDMI port for outputting images to a high-definition screen or that it was “2007 Camera of the Year” on PopPhoto.com.

    Purchasing a digital camera may seem like a simple task, however there are many things to consider beforehand. Perhaps there will be things that were not so obvious before, like what options there are for the flash, what ratio the screen is, how much it weighs, etc. These are the types of details that 42nd Street Photo would love to help you figure out. We don’t just want to sell you a digital camera, we want you to purchase the right digital camera for you. Trust us, we like satisfied customers.
