    David Burnett talks to the New York Times on what cameras he uses and why he mainly shoots digital now - he's another Canon 20D user.

  • Blog Post: Canon SD500 first impressions

    I've always owned Canon cameras and was looking around for a new small digital camera and decided on the Canon SD500 .

    It's been all over the web (well at least the digital media parts of it) in recent weeks about new portable MP3 players shipping with removable Hitachi Microdrives that can be used in anything with a compact flash socket - notably there's been a lot of discussion in the forums at dpreview.com .
