Could This

Be the camera of the (near) future Based on current trends and on our own reporting, we imagined it slightly smaller and much lighter than a typical DSLR with an EVF, compact lens, huge, articulated touchscreen monitor, and toss in the air like confetti for a cloud of pictures but how many people would actually buy one Olympus' EndoCapsule camera is so tiny you could swallow it whole. In fact, you're supposed to. Says John Knaur, senior digital products manager at Olympus, As you swallow it, it...

Hiis month's darkroom techniques covered a host of ways to manipulate negatives. Ektar f 6.3 lens and CC-14 color filter. The exposure was 1 2 sec at f 11.

On the optica bench in our Test Lab, the lens produced uniformly Excellent-range SQF numbers for sharpness and contrast but performed slightly less well than the 17-85mm it replaces the price of the wider angle of view. Better, in our DxO Analyzer 3.2 distortion tests, its Visible barreling at 15mm (0.55 ) handily trumped the earlier Canon and comparable Nikon, both of which had Very Visible barrel distortion (1.25 ) at their widest focal lengths. Edge falloff and magnification were average for...

To funnel light into those wells more effectively. It also has a new Venus Engine FHD for image processing. The LX5's fast zoom covers a 3.8X, 24-90mm (full-frame equivalent) range, up from 2.5X, 24-60mm, on the LX3. Its fastest shutter speed is now 1 4000 sec, and it records up to 720p HD video at 30 fps in AVCHD Lite, for smaller files than the LX3's Motion JPEG capture. In our tryout of the camera before its official August introduction, we noticed shutter lag was reduced likely thanks to...

To Better Pictures

I have been reading Popular Photography for many decades. But one of the most helpful articles that I have ever read in your magazine was Dan Richards* 10 Questions to Better Pictures in the August 2010 issue. For those of us comfortable with (film) Leicas and SLRs, but daunted by the complexity of today's DSLRs and their exceptionally dense user manuals, the article was comprehensive and enlightening. I now am reassured about setting my ISO at 400 (I long used Kodak Tri-X film). I now know...

Canon Eos 60d

Putting it as far from the standard manual, program, and aperture- and shutter-priority modes as it can possibly get. If Canon had only designed the mode dial to rotate a full 360 degrees, the placement would've been perfect. Even better would have been to put a switch on the back of the camera for direct access to video mode, as on the EOS 7D. Canon also did away with the tiny joystick found on the 50D and other midlevel and high-end EOS models. In its place, the 60D has an eight-way control...

What the smaller pixels mean for noise. expect from it in day-to-day use.
