There are only two kinds of digital photographers who use cameras with interchangeable lenses, those who have had to deal with sensor dust and those who have not had to deal with sensor dust, yet. If you are in the latter group, be ready, because it will happen.

While the general marketplace for point and shoot cameras has fallen significantly because smartphones do such a fine job in that portable, small sensor space, an area of growth has appeared in the market of point and shoot cameras for more serious photographers.

With the holiday season approaching, many photographers are hoping for the gift of a reliable tripod that they will actually use. I wanted to share my learning about the new Cameron CF700BH tripod with this in mind. A tripod that goes unused is worthless. After over forty years as a photographer, and nearly ten years as a photographic educator, I’ve learned that photographers avoid using a tripod for three reasons.

Cameron W700HS Flash for Nikon or Canon

Photographers often have a love/hate relationship with flash. I love flash and use it a great deal. Others find it hard to use and avoid it like it was toxic.  I cannot fix that for you here, but I can tell you about two new flashes, available exclusively at Henry’s that will do a great job for you, both on and off camera.

Is Your Kit Lens Holding You Back?

It’s easy to become attached to the quality lens that came with your digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) camera, and if you are like most photography buffs you have put it to good use. Most of these kit lenses provide a good focal range along with some versatility, but is it wise to depend on only one lens? As you strive to develop and hone your camera skills, reliance on a single lens might slow down the learning process.
