Throwback Thursday: Olympus C-8080 Wide Zoom

Announced in 2004, the Olympus C-8080 Wide Zoom wasn't the first camera with a focal range starting at 28mm, nor was it the highest resolution camera at the time with its 8 megapixel CCD. What made the C-8080 interesting was the amount of work that Olympus put into the lens, claiming that it was designed to be on par with the Zuiko Digital lenses found on its DSLRs. dpreview.com

Throwback Thursday: Nikon D70

In 2004 I had to make the same grueling decision as many fellow photographers: Canon EOS 300D (Digital Rebel) or Nikon D70 - which one was to become my first digital SLR? The Canon, which had been launched in August 2003 was the first true consumer-level DSLR and had been on my wish list for a few months when, in January 2004, Nikon threw a curve ball and launched a direct competitor to the EOS 300D: the D70, the company's first sub-$1000 digital SLR. dpreview.com

Why Camera Choice Matters In Unexpected Ways

For as long as Ive been photographing, Ive always had a soft spot for gear and the technical side of photography.

Throwback Thursday: the Nikon D80

Ten megapixels ought to be enough for anybody. It was ten years ago this past September that Nikon introduced its 10 megapixel, twin-dial D80 DSLR. It was also ten years ago that my dad picked up a shiny new example of one to act as a backup to his workhorse studio camera, the D200. dpreview.com

But a vintage ad (yes, because the 90s are vintage) This commercial was shot back in 1997 by Alastair Thain using the Nikon F5 camera!
