Olympus TG-3: Best Rugged Camera on the Market:
By far, the TG-3 is the best rugged camera on the market. The LCD screen is sharp, the images come out with great color and good clarity, and the camera is very easy to use.
The TG-3 will be available in June for about $350.
I’ve always been a huge fan of the Olympus Tough series of cameras and have recommended them highly – particularly to those who are “hard” on their gear or want a camera suitable for a kid who may not treat it gently. Good to see the reviews of the TG-3 have been very positive.
The folks at PetaPixel tweeted this deal this morning – Two 8GB SDHC Cards for Free with Free Shipping.
These aren’t the fastest cards in the world but they would be good for backups and you can’t beat free. The deal (which includes free shipping according to Slickdeals) goes away tonight at midnight Eastern so you better hurry.
If you happen to be one of those who have never used a prime lens — a single focal length lens — you’re probably wondering what all the fuss is about. Is it just hype and no substance? Is the awesomeness of prime lenses all in other people’s heads?
Both of those questions can be assuredly answered, “No.”
So let’s go over the reasons why you should give prime lenses a try and why I’m confident that you will absolutely love the results.
I carry two primes in my bag – the Nikon “Nifty Fifty” and for the M1, the 75mm.
I wouldn’t say I’ve “fallen in love” with either but that might from simple lack of practice using them. I do love the lowlight capabilities of the 50mm f/1.8 though.
Canon EOS Rebel T3 DSLR Camera and 18-55mm IS II Lens
Looking to step up from your iPhone or point and shoot camera? You won’t go too far wrong with the Canon EOS Rebel T3. It’s a great “beginner” DSLR and Amazon has it at a great price. The folks at B&H also have it for the same price and are throwing in a camera bag and an SD Card to boot.
