My wife is a lost cause, so I decided to try and lure my 5 years old daughter into the photography dark side. I got her a camera. Specifically, the Vtech Kidizoom Plus Pink Digital Camera. Below you can find my reasons for getting this camera as well as my thoughts and review. I would also love to hear your thoughts about getting a camera for your little one, share them in the comments.

“What will they think of next,” was a phrase I used to hear my grandmother say. While civilization is still busy committing the oldest of sins in the newest of ways, Google has teamed up with GoPro to bring a truly new revolution to the world of virtual reality (in case real reality was just [...]
Before Richard Prince appropriated the photos of Instagram users, and long before the SuicideGirls re-appropriated their photos, the lazy “artist” became famous for stealing re-photographing Sam Abell’s iconic cowboy photos. Prince took cigarette ads with Abell’s Marlboro Man images and photographed them in a way that basically “cropped” the text and logo out. With Prince [...]
Got any projects on hold until you get that dream lens? Convinced your current gear isn’t good enough for the task? As can be seen in the lens test created by Freddie and the gang over at RocketJump Film School, you may be wasting your time – and money. Don’t expect to see focus charts [...]
Some couples get married at City Hall to save money; others do it to keep things simple. Either way, regardless of the reason, couples getting married at New York’s City Hall during the first week of June are in for a pleasant surprise. Renowned photographer and Nikon ambassador Joe McNally will be waiting with his [...]
One of the biggest obstacles in street photography is the fear of capturing strangers. I mean, it makes sense. You are taking photos of people without asking them for their permission first. Although it is completely legal in a lot of countries, it still takes guts to pull it off. Jack Canfield once said: “Everything [...]
The world would be a more cheerful place if there were more people like Kelly Lewis. By her own admission, Kelly was never much of a baby person–it was just something that didn’t interest her the way baby fever seems to grip others. So, instead of changing diapers and tending to the delicate needs of [...]
Not wanting to leave the astrophotography market to Nikon’s upcoming D810A, Canon is said to be working on its own dedicated full frame camera. When the D810A was announced Nikon said it will start shipping in late May, so any day now, but its Canon competitor is expected to be released only in 2016. Could [...]
As some of your faithful followers may know, I like camera bags. I also like to make them water-resistant. My family and I do a lot of outdoor activities, from hiking and exploring to paddling and camping, often encountering less-than-ideal weather conditions. For those of us who like to take our cameras into extreme weather, [...]
DaVinci Resolve has been renown for its color grading capabilities for while, and they made me one happy freeloader when they started offering a pared-down version of their software at no cost. But, one major thing DaVinci lacked was the total control of a non-lineal editor. Now, with the upcoming release of DaVinci Resolve 12, [...]
Lomography made a big splash when they released a 21st-century version of the famed Petzval lens last year. Now, 175 years after it was first invented by Joseph Petzval, Lomography is planning to launch a 58mm version of the lens with a built-in bokeh control ring. This ring, according to Lomography, will allow you to [...]
Lightroom CC was announced just over a month ago, and Adobe is already offering a sneak peek of a yet-to-be-released feature that could become a landscape photographer’s best friend. Adobe Evangelist Terry White walks viewers through the new dehaze slider, showing just how incredibly effective it is, but also how other photographers can use it [...]
Rumors have been talking about a GoPro drone for quite a while, and yesterday the company’s CEO Nick Woodman finally announced it is actually going to happen. “Do you guys all want GoPro to make a quadcopter?” Woodman asked the audience at the Code Conference, replying “OK, GoPro is making a quadcopter. It’s official!”. The [...]
Richard Prince has been in the headlines lately after being accused, once again, of stealing other peoples’ work and selling it as his own. Prince’s latest controversial “art” is basically a series of screenshots of various Instagram photos, along with the uploader’s name and some of the comments. In order for the work to be [...]
The Interwebs are rife with mocking and ridicule, from armchair pundits spouting their views on politics to religious nut-jobs attempting to bludgeon the public into belief conformity. Heaven knows I’ve done my fair share of it (which typically coincides with a depleted supply of Midol). But, there’s one specific demographic that I frequently see getting [...]
Nothing like saddling up and taking a rotting whale carcass out for a ride in the ocean. Especially when there’s a shiver of great white sharks engaged in a feeding frenzy on it. As crazy as that may sound, a researcher and photographer in South Africa can add these exact circumstances to his resume. Seriously. [...]
