When you're jet-setting to a warm island locale for some well-deserved vacay R&R, you definitely want to bring along a camera to document all the beautiful sites and landscapes you're bound to explore.

Coming Soon: Canon’s Newest Addition, the EOS 5D Mark IV

Emerging from a long line of well-loved DSLRs in the Canon 5D series, such as the original EOS 5D and the Mark II which introduced full HD video capture to DSLRs, the Mark IV certainly has a lot to live up to. Not to worry - it delivers! While not radically different in appearance from its predecessor (a strategic choice, as it allows photographers familiar with the other cameras in this line to be readily comfortable with it), it comes with amazing upgrades that make it one of the most complete DSLRs on the market. New features include a larger hand grip, 4k video capture, an upgrade AF system, built-in Wi-Fi/NFC and GPS, Dual Pixel autofocus, better weather-sealing and a 3.2...

On the Pacific Coast Trail with a Camera

With the movie Wild debuting in theaters around the country tomorrow,  we're betting on record traffic this summer along the film's dramatic location, the 2,663 mile-long Pacific Coast Trail. The movie is based on writer Cheryl Strayed's memoir about her 1995 solo hike, for which she packed — and then regretted packing — substantial camera gear.  As Strayed's account of her journey makes clear, when you're hauling  everything you need on your back, including food, tent,  and water, any gear that's neither essential for survival nor immediately soul gratifying quickly gets tossed or mailed home. Photographers intrigued by the PCT and its colorful, ever-changing band of pilgrims can take a lesson from Strayed's mistake and bring lighter gear. Or they can do what San Francisco-based photographer Eric Tuttle did and avoid the limitations...
