There's an exhibition of photographs of Captain Scott's ill fated Antarctic expedition running at the Chris Beetles Fine Photographs Gallery in London.

Taken by Scott's expedition camera artist - Herbert Ponting - it's a collection of some 60 breathtaking photographs. This is well worth a visit if you're in London, and even if you're not, you can still grab a look on the gallery website.


 
We've created a new section on the site to include bridge or hybrid cameras. Bridge cameras span the divide between compacts and a full blown SLR camera. Typically they offer advanced controls similar to what you'd get on a SLR.
 
We've launched a new section on our blog called 'On Location' and we're looking for people to submit short articles consisting of a 6-8 photos and supporting text on a theme or location of their choice.
 

Now this is painful. On Ebay, there's a Canon 600mm super telephoto lens with a Canon 1D Mark 3 attached going for sale at a rock bottom price. Why so cheap, sadly it's all rather badly damaged by salt water.

At current prices, the Canon 1D Mark 3 is about £1,000 just by itself, whereas the Canon 600mm F4 super telephoto is a cool £10,000. That is one expensive accident. Thank god for insurance eh.

Forrest Tanaka has produced an excellent video about astrophotography. So if this is an area of photography you'd like to learn more about, it's a great idea to go through his videos first.

This is the first video in a series which covers telescopes particularly suitable ones to go for. so I'm guessing Forrest will be adding a number of further videos which cover the other aspects of astrophotography.


 
When you're a kid, you're told to keep the camera as still as possible. Good advice - usually. However, if you want to get the most impressive action shots then you'll need to be nimble. This article describes how to use the panning technique.
 
If you're a local to Hampshire in the UK like me, then there's a photography show going on in Southampton this month, April 18th to be exact. The expo is going to be held at the Novotel Hotel in Southampton, and full details can be found here. Think I'll pop along.
 
You know, the world takes on a completely different perspective when you're taking photographs at an incredibly high frame rate. The video below is by Tom Guilmette and it truly is stunning.
