The Pentax 645Z is the latest medium-format camera to use a CMOS sensor

Just a few months ago, there were no medium-format cameras with CMOS sensors. Now, it feels like you can't turn around in a camera store without bumping into one.

An update to the Pentax 645D, the new US$8,500 medium-format DSLR features a 51.4-megapixel CMOS sensor, a wide sensitivity range, and Full HD video recording.  Read More

Tiffen's Steadicam Curve gets put to the test

I recently had the chance to try the Curve out for myself, to see how good it really is at smoothin' out the shakes.  Read More
