            The best camera? The one you have with you... http://www.redsharknews.com/production/item/2679-the-best-camera-the-one-you-have-with-you http://www.redsharknews.com/production/item/2679-the-best-camera-the-one-you-have-with-you Guerrilla style shooting in Mumbai

            Sony’s PXW X70 is picking up a reputation as a fairly remarkable small camera that produces big pictures. More to the point, as I found out recently in Mumbai, you can take it places where you could never take a bigger camera.

                    RedShark Archive: Gone are the days when a light meter and a trained eye was enough; to do better, we need technological measures and test & measurement equipment. In this article, first published in August 2013, Phil Rhodes discusses a few of the most common approaches and why some may be more useful than others, depending on the circumstances.
