If you’ve always wondered how a pre-digital SLR film camera worked, you can either spend hours painstakingly removing all its tiny screws in order to completely take it apart, or just leave it in the path of a 60,000 PSI waterjet which will reveal the camera’s guts in a manner of minutes.
While I usually enjoy a good crush on the hydraulic press every now and then, this one felt particularly painful. In its latest video, the Hydraulic Press Channel decided to crush two vintage Canon and Nikon SLR cameras followed up with the complete decimation of a lens (which actually puts up a pretty good fight).

Last month, I took the Nikon D810 out on the Sierra High Route — one of the toughest adventures around. It got dirty, wet, and constantly banged around. Here’s how it performed.
If you have a knackered old SLR lying around, are game for a project and fancy adding a little quirk to your front door, why not think about creating a photography themed peephole?
The best wedding proposals involve things that you both care about. Memes, drones, and so forth. This proposal is especially cute because photographer Jerrit Pruyn combined his love for cameras with his love for his girlfriend. He etched 'Marry Me' inside his camera so when his girlfriend looked inside, she'd be asked…
Making the jump from point-and-shoots to an SLR can be a daunting proposition but this 8-bit explainer from Light and Matter should help.

They may not actually "work" like that folded Leica but these papercraft reproductions of SLR's, Super8's, and Roliflexes are unique in that they're themselves constructed from analog technologies. Artist Jennifer Collier has stitched and bonded them together from maps, love letters, newspapers and other material…
Sometimes lugging your full DSLR around is more trouble than it's worth, so you bring a smaller point-and-shoot. But what about when you don't want to lug a full tripod around just to hold your compact digital camera? The Tiltpod could be the answer.
It looks complex, but put Inon's X-2 housing in perspective and you will appreciate its grace. Meant for Panasonic's micro four thirds GF1, the X-2 adds bulk, but only enough to make your camera around the size of an SLR.
Is Samsung's flagship point-and shoot, the new TL500, truly worthy of the Bestmodo moniker we slapped on its butt yesterday afternoon? Well, let's put it this way: Maybe the Canon S90 does have something to worry about after all.
I don't know what it looks where you live, but in Chicago, it's cold enough that everything is dead but not snowy enough to hide it. So let's lament our environment with good old, pretentious, black and white nature photography.
I thought this photo was of pollen. It's not. Really, those are the protrusions on a starfish at 66x magnification, captured on a dSLR.
Remember that iPhone app which let you control your Canon DSLR (while it was connected via USB to a laptop) and even display a Live View feed? Well a new version will also add support for those with a penchant for Nikon cameras. The update, which is due out mid-July, is also said to feature a new, more intuitive UI . […
