Did you know that B&H sells computers? In this edition of Meet B&H, we give you a tour of our computer department. Encompassing a sizeable amount of space in the store, there are rows and rows of computers, laptops, tablets, netbooks and accessories, for customers to get a feel for before making an informed decision. Everything from Apple, Acer, Sony, and more.

As a former PCMag staffer, I can genuinely say that this is Toys R Us for geeks.

I was traveling six hundred feet down and a thousand years back, more or less. The trail from the rim of Canyon de Chelly to the White House Ruin begins with a series of steep switchbacks. On one side, there's a wall of rock. On the other side, if you're clumsy, there's a fall that's long enough to kill you. I watched my step.

Nostalgia—that's the word that will come to the minds of many photographers when they hold the Fujifilm X100 digital camera. I've spent lots of time with it by my side as a constant companion, and the little camera has grown on me tremendously. At the moment, these cameras are a bit hard to get your hands on, due to the unfortunate occurrences in Japan. However, it's a small but powerful camera that is worth taking a look at.

I recently was able to talk to Michael Freeman about photographing better sunsets. Admittedly, I can't do this for the life of me, and have always found photographing people to be much easier. Michael is the author of the first three books in the Focal Press Field Guide series: The Photographer’s Eye Field Guide, The DSLR Field Guide and The Exposure Field Guide.

As SLR users, we are all aware of the many components and features of the cameras we shoot with every day, because the SLR has become the universal standard for today's professional and serious amateur photographers. But where did this highly successful camera design come from, and what turned the SLR into the success that it is today?

Gaffers Tape—like duct tape—can resolve many of the world's problems. Photographers constantly use gaffers tape as a quick fix to get around many of the obstacles that they face every day, due to the fact that it is tough, heat resistant, and it doesn't leave nasty residue. I spoke to many of my photographer friends here at B&H about how they've used gaffers tape. Here are some of the ways that they've used the sticky lifesaver.

Simply put, the single best thing photographers can do right now to directly improve their business is adding video. Just as digital technology revolutionized the industry a decade or so ago, I strongly believe that fusion products—the combination of still images and motion capture—will soon become the norm in our ever-evolving industry.

The debate between digital and analogue takes place in more than just the photography world. As a musician, I also know that the lines are drawn with instruments. The Crosley USB Turntables are an attempt to play peacemaker in the conflict. These retro-stylish turntables have a special modern twist on them: they can digitize your old records and you can edit the ripped audio in a special software suite. Some of them even have AM/FM radios.

Not long ago, we spent some time with famed wedding photographer and guest blogger Ryan Brenizer. One of the reasons why Ryan is famous is because of his unique style of shooting portraits known across the net as the Brenizer Method. Ryan talked with us about the gear he uses to do it, how he came up with the idea, the post-production phase, and also gave us some tips for beginners. Take a look at the video after clicking Read and Discuss.

Auto white balance sounds like it solves every issue regarding colors in your pictures, but it doesn't. For example, when you shoot at sunset or sunrise, AWB wants to 'correct' the golden tones that we love so much when the sun is close to the horizon. It desaturates the yellow and red portion of the spectrum, and the colors look weak and disappointing.
