Adorama is not only here to assist you when making purchasing decisions on photographic & video gear, we're here to educate you on many different aspects of photography.

My cool product of the month: The Camera Slingers Dual Deluxe Camera Strap. The "Dual Deluxe" comfortably supports the weight of two cameras at one time. Finally a solution for the two-camera shooter. No more fumbling or having to set your bodies on the ground. The Camera Slingers design does not require the use of a cross strap, making it both female and wardrobe friendly. You can now carry two cameras with ease and comfort, even if worn all day! The Ergonomic design support system is made to support the weight of your cameras on the stronger part of your back, the unique bi-lateral binding takes the stress off your shoulders and spine. Your back will love you! Shoot in style... shoot with ease. Take a look: See it here:

iPhones and laptops may be great for a lot of things, but don't overlook the importance of a good portable storage and viewing solution ( On the subject of iPhones, we recently reviewed onOne's iPhone remote for Canon SLRs (

Have you checked out our TechTock podcast yet? Guest #12 was Sports Shooter's own Brad Mangin (! If you can believe such a thing, they talked a lot about baseball. Jack also chatted with fellow Sports Shooter Joe McNally ( and talked at great length with Zach Arias about his recent Transform video project (

Mason reviewed the FujiFilm Instax 200 Instant camera-very cool for some retro on-the-spot imaging, and Jack took Canon's new ultra wide 17mm TS-E f/4L tilt-shift lens out for a spin. Be sure to check out the full screen fly out slideshows of the image sample galleries. And finally, Jack talks about great advice from a fortune cookie here in this light, but informative first-person account of working around ambient chaos: Don't panic. Instead, have a plan.

Capturing Great Sound For HD Video On Your DSLR
More and more digital SLRs coming equipped to capture HD video, and pro shooters are getting into the swing. But does the sound quality you're capturing do your videos justice? Those little on-camera micas simply don't do it, and that's why Adorama's Learning Center has produced an overview of all the different kinds of microphones you can use to capture stunning audio. Read "Soup up your digital still camera's HD video sound-Don't use the built-in mic!"

Portable Hard Drives for Road Warriors
Attention road warriors: With high-end DSLRs producing 15-25MP images and HD videos, those 16GB memory cards that seemed like overkill are filling up fast. Where do you back up your image files when your memory cards fill up and you're nowhere near your computer? Adorama's Learning Center takes a look at your options and suggests the top models in "The Best Portable Storage Right Now!"
