[Gear] Nikon D800 and Canon 5D MKIII ISO Samples

The Nikon D800 has been much criticized for its enormous megapixel count. And some have worried that packing 36 megapixels into a full frame sensor might lead to decreased low-light performance. These samples, however, push those worries aside. It's no D4, but for 36 megapixels, I think Nikon should win an award for this. Canon took a different route with the 22-megapixel 5D Mark III, but that paid off, too. See for yourself in the full post!

[Gear] The Mirrorless Camera: Pro Quality in Your Pocket
Mirrorless cameras are everywhere, now. By removing the standard mirror arrangement, manufacturers have been able to cram huge sensors similar to those in DSLRs into the same, tiny bodies as their point-and-shoot cousins. And if you Google "DSLR in your pocket," half of the images that come up are mirrorless cameras. But does this hold true? And is the mirrorless right for you?

[News] Kodak Officially Files Chapter 11 Bankruptcy
As much as we've all been hoping there must be some way for Kodak to save itself, today marks the beginning of...a new beginning. Credited for bringing photography to the masses and creating the industry's leading film technology, we're sad for Kodak's continuing struggle.
