Ritz Camera Files For Bankruptcy(via)
Ritz Camera is filing for bankruptcy. I guess, in today's age of digital photography, a general purpose electronics store can do just as good of a job at hiring disinterested folks to sell you digital cameras as a specialty store.
New Canon A2100 IS and A1100 IS disappoint without manual exposure(via)
I agree with this assessment. An A-series Canon without manual modes is a piece of crap.
EKTAR 100 Film available in 120 format(via)
Apparently Ektar 100 is enough of a hit that now they're releasing it in 120 format as well as 35mm format.
Canon PowerShot D10 waterproof camera. Waterproof is the new thin(via)
Remember what I said yesterday about waterproof being the new thin? Canon has an inherently waterproof digital camera now too.
Fujifilm FinePix Z33 waterproof camera(via)
One of my co-workers just got herself a waterproof Olympus. The selling point was the lack of a silly plastic case that you'd have to put the camera in.

I suspect that inherently waterproof is the next thin.
Strobist reviews the PocketWizard FlexTT5 and MiniTT1(via)
In a brilliant demonstration of why competition is a damn good thing, PocketWizard is trying to change the game with their latest flagship set of radio remotes for strobist photography.
A few miles away from each other
If you don't like the weather in California, drive to the next microclimate. If you are sick of how cold it is, go east and eventually you will hit desert. If you want to see snow, go up. If you want to ski and scuba dive in the same day, you can. On the other hand, if you want rain every day, you need to go north to Seattle, because we've got a rainy season in the wintertime and that's it.

I went on a nice mountain climbing bike ride yesterday and I took two shots a few hours apart and separated by some miles...
Fujifilm introduces F200EXR with Super CCD EXR(via)
This is, in my opinion, a very welcome change on the part of Fuji. The Super CCD EXR sensor has been normally reserved for big cameras, not compact cameras, even though the benefits, especially in terms of being able to shoot a reasonable-dynamic-range or a pixel-binned 6 megapixel image on a 12 megapixel sensor are great, even for small cameras.
