"Get a 50mm lens." That is a statement that many photographers will tell you. But do they mean a 50mm lens or the equivalent of a 50mm lens on your camera? Make no mistake, a 50mm lens is a 50mm lens, but sensors have magnification and crop factors depending on your camera model.

In this edition of Meet B&H, we visit the Used Department of the store. The Used Department contains loads of older cameras (both film and digital) and collectibles on display and in the back stock room. Located on the second floor of the store, it often contains some interesting finds, like old Canon 7 rangefinders, rare lenses, camcorders, lights, bags, etc. In addition to used gear, there are also refurbished products that are restored to original manufacturer specs—just like new!

When people sell or trade in their gear, it ends up in the Used Department. For those starting out in any medium (photo, video, audio, computing, etc.) or just want to save money by purchasing older equipment, feast your eyes on the Used section.

On a shelf above my desk sits an enormous binder full of 35mm slides, neatly stored in sleeves. These slides aren’t my work though. And it isn’t the work of anyone I know.

Most of my photographic interest involves working underwater. However, some places in the world are as interesting above water as below. A trip to Egypt would not be complete without visiting the Pyramids and other sites of the ancient world. Planning such a trip is a logistical nightmare, though, involving domestic flights and ground transportation. It is best to use a travel agent who specializes in your destination.

Everything from RAW HD video, 4K video output, wireless flash control, much faster burst rate, to 39MP have been rumored. What features would be on your wish list? When will it come out? We'd love for you to share your thoughts in the comments below.

Anyone who uses external hard drives regularly wishes they were faster. Once you start copying several gigabytes of data to an external hard drive, you’re in for a long wait. Most external hard drives connect to computers via USB 2.0, but USB 3.0 is ten times faster. While your computer probably doesn’t have a USB 3.0 port, Western Digital’s My Book 3.0 comes with a solution.

When I first began studying photography, I was taught that there were two types of photographers: collectors and voyeurs. I remember being immediately drawn to photographs that fell under the latter category. The photos of Cartier-Bresson, with their ability to capture subjects and environments interacting so harmoniously, were mesmerizing. I too wanted to know how to create "The Decisive-Moment."

I hate backing up. I do it, but I hate it. If you’re not running back ups, you’re courting heartache. My cautionary tale: A few years back, my brother and I were editing our first indie feature. Our data got corrupted. Nothing was backed up. We lost 3 months of post-production -- the entire film. Starting from scratch nearly killed us. Don’t let it happen to you.

When I think of wood, beautiful trees, furniture, boats, guitars, carvings, lumber and buildings come to mind. But when I think of notebook computers, wood is the last thing on my mind. That has changed after seeing the ASUS Bamboo notebook computers.
