http://www.blogcdn.com/www.engadget.com/media/2010/02/diy-dslr-trigger.jpg

I’ve always found that DSLR auto-trigger can be rather expensive for no apparent reason other than camera makers are over-charging for accessories.  Well, you don’t have to deal with that anymore if you want to build yourself a nifty laser trigger for your DSLR.  This could possibly be better than radio-controlled ones, who knows?

I am sure even if you don’t make a laser trigger, you could probably build a cheap radio-trigger by applying the DSLR trigger basics outlined here.

Camera Hack – How to Make a Self-Portrait Camera!

http://www.instructables.com/image/F92BF4SG5704GYN/Self-Portrait-Camera-Mirror.jpg

You know, I didn’t realize how simple it is to make a self-portrait camera.  It’s very simple, just attach a small mirror!

Simple and brilliant!

When I thought about how many pictures I have taken of myself while holding the camera at arms length, I realized that a feature that would allow you to see what you’re shooting would actually be pretty darn useful.

The mirror shows exactly what’s in the center of the photo, so as long as I can see a nose or an eye in the mirror when taking a self portrait, I can be pretty sure that the photo wi

http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4049/4336753197_f8b9e1356b_m.jpg

It’s been about 3 months since I’ve emerged myself into the world of photography.  One of the reasons I decided to move to a DSLR camera is because of “Depth of Field” where you can focus on your objects sharply.

Since I’ve owned a DSLR, I’ve been doing a lot of experimenting with depth of field and if you are just dipping  your foot into DSLR photography, you might want to ch

Casio EX-10HG GPS-Enabled Camera Review!

http://www.techfresh.net/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/Casio-EX-10HG-Compact-Digital-Camera_01.jpg

You know I have always been fond of Casui Exlim camera’s slow-motion abilities.  Well this year Casio is taking the point-and-shoot cameras further into early-adaptor niche by introducing GPS into their cameras, mostly for geo-tagging your photos.  What’s next Casio, a camera with phone abilities?  LMAO, I think one day the market for smartphones and digital cameras must merge into one.

The Casio EX-10HG features a built-in GPS sensor for geo-tagging your photos. If the camera’s user go out-of-range from a global positioning satellite, the Casio EX-10HG will

Samsung NX10 Hands-on Review at CES 2010!

The Samsung NX10 is probably one of the best at the show this year, the hybrid DSLR camera is small and light like a point-and-shoot camera while camera lenses can be interchanged using adaptors.

On my hands-on experience, the NX10 provided clearly better experience over existing point-and-shoot cameras such as being able to manipulate the depth of the field. Although I am not a total expert on DSLRs as I have only owned a DSLR camera for 2 months, I think the Samsung NX10 is a great choice for those of you who want something portable than a full-fledged DSLR camera but fall
