Nikon COOLPIX W150 Is Colorful, But It Ain’t No Kids’ Toy

Why cameras have to be in black? I don’t know. Perhaps, it is more discreet and makes the shooter looks more like a ‘pro’.

Canon Joins The Instant-print Camera Market With A Pair Of IVY CLIQ Cameras

Wait. Is there an instant-print fad going on? Apparently, there is. Because, Canon, a camera maker that’s usually oh-so-serious about photography equipment, is also jumping onboard the instant-print camera bandwagon, starting with a pair of instant print equipped cameras called IVY CLIQ. No. CLIQ are not cute like Fujifilm Instax, if that’s what you are thinking. But the duo are the best fun the serious camera maker can get and that’s by throwing in fun colors, and also the ability to add frames and whatnot on your photos prior to printing. You know, the usual stuff. Continue reading Canon Joins The Instant-print Camera Market With A Pair Of IVY CLIQ Cameras
