Family ties...

So Jacob Noah was born on february 24th at 8lb 13oz and had to go straight into intensive care because of a problem called wet lung where the fluid hasn't entirely left the lungs. Then yet thought it may be simply that he's not worked out that he's not a foetus anymore but is a baby. Then they decid...

ePHOTOzine at IFA

IFA starts in Berlin soon and ePHOTOzine have been given early access to the electronics trade show to have a chat with Samsung and find out as much as we can about new products. Of course they're keeping tight lipped about future projects but I got to see the new NX camera which is the APS-C versio...

50 years of slr

I spent this evening hobnobbing with canon aristocracy as they invited ephotozine to celebrate 50 years of canon slr. I met loads of great people from all over the industry including James Velacott, the mirrors staff photographer. You can read about him in our article. Thanks to everyone at canon fo...

Following on from Panasonic coming to visit us, I went to Windsor to see them and had a better play with the GH1. Great little camera and you can see some of the pictures I took with it on the review page. While making my way back to the meeting spot, I noticed some people taking pictures of a fo...

Exclusive Panasonic hands on!

I had a visit from Panasonic today. They came to ePz towers, had a look around our base of operations and gave us an exclusive hands on of the new GH1. I'm working on a written preview for the reviews section right now. The GH1 looks pretty exciting with full HD video capability as well as AF in ...

Hi everyone, I've got the Olympus E-620 coming in tomorrow and ePHOTOzine are the first to get one! I'm currently working on the Ricoh CX1 and Nikon S630 compacts with a couple of Olympus compacts in the wings and other assorted stuff waiting for me to look at. Keep watching the review section, it'...

david bailey

I had the opportunity to meet the legendary photographer on Thursday at a press event organised by Olympus. They were showcasing the new E-30 and E-620 and Mr. Bailey turned up for a Q&A session. It's great to know that ePHOTOzine led the way. We were the only ones with questions prepared and so...

Nothing in life is free

I drove past a gaming centre on my way to see Canon this morning and a poster shouted: "3 Free Play!" Now I may be wrong but how do you get free play if you have to pay for it? Speaking of this, I decided to stop in St. Pancras and try the free WiFi connection that they allow you to us...

Nikon D3x

I guess you're all excited to learn about the new Nikon guv'nor DSLR although I don't think it was much of a surprise to many of you. I went to London yesterday to take a look at the flagship D3x and because the cameras had final firmware installed, we got to have a play with them. I'm currently wri...

New changes to the reviews

Hey everyone, just a couple of minor changes. The smallest is that "Modes and features" will simply be called "Features" but the biggest change I'm amking is in the Noise tests. Low spec compacts will no longer have all ISO images displayed. I'll still take them so I can comment ...

interesting times

I saw Terry pratchett on TV today which inspired my title for this entry. It certainly is interesting though as I've learned that tomorrow I'll be receiving the Nikon D90 and Canon EOS 50D DSLRs. Monday should see the arrival of the Canon Powershot G10. I'm still trying to get the P6000, dear reade...

dark knight

I went to see Dark Knight last night and thought it was awesome. Heath Ledger was better than I expected as the Joker although he had Jack Nicholson written all over him. Bale's voice roared as Batman but sometimes it was a little too growly and he had the tendency to acquire a lisp. If you want t...

Editorial on tour

So here I am in London sat in an internet cafe as I visit a couple of companies and take a look at their products. I went to see Adobe yesterday who's offices overlook Regents Park. Amusingly, they're a stones throw from Harley Street. I find it a little ironic that a company that specialises in fix...

Hi everyone, I've added an anchor link to the reviews section as some of you don't want to go through the whole review, preferring to read the verdict to see if the camera is worth looking at. Simply click on the Skip to Verdict link and it'll take you straight there. Tomorrow I'm off to the Goo...

press event

I've just returned from a press event organised by Bogen Imaging who distribute well known makes such as Manfrotto, Gitzo and Kata. Look out for reviews on the Kata R-103 bag and Manfrotto 190CX Pro4 tripod with 100% carbon fibre construction.
