To be able to photograph the Northern Lights, a bit of planning is required. In fact, the Northern Lights are only visible in the "Auroral Oval" at high latitudes around the Polar Circles, and where there is no light pollution, far from the big cities. Some well known areas for photographing the Northern Lights include Lapland and the north of Scandinavia, Alaska and Iceland. It's more difficult to find a good spot in the Southern hemisphere around the Antarctic Circle. In the Southern hemisphere the Southern Lights are called the Aurora Australis.
Here's another photography competition along the theme of 'eyes'. Picture complete are running it with a first place prize of $200.
Jessops has recently relaunched itself thanks to being purchased by Peter Jones. I think they did need to modernize, and hopefully with a slight change in direction they'll soon return to their proper place on the high street.
If, like me you're blessed with being left handed, you can now buy a camera specifically designed to our hand of choice. Now i don't know whether this would bother me personally as I think I've pretty much gotten used to using a standard camera, but everyone's different I guess! The camera in this case is the Canon 7DL and more details can be found at the digital picture
Well, if you fancy having a good look at what's going on on Mars you can't go wrong by checking out Andrew Bodrov's panoramic photo. It's the result of stitching together 295 individual photographs from 2 separate cameras. A truly impressive accomplishment.

In April, Nikon is opening a school in London to encourage people to embrace the wonderful world of photography. Ok it's not free, but if you want some top quality hands on training, you could do a lot worse than go to the source - so to speak - and learn from Nikon!

The school is based at Nikon's centre of Excellence near Oxford Circus, in London. Typically course fees are £119+, although they are currently running a £20 discount if you book before May 1st 2013.

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.

Nikon has announced it's newest digital SLR camera, the Nikon D7100. As a successor to the hugely popular Nikon D7000, the D7100 will come with weather sealing (very useful for when it's raining out) and an impressive 24 megapixel sensor.

In terms of the line-up in Nikon's SLR range, the D7100 will comfortably sit in between the Nikon D5200, considered to be a consumer level camera and the Nikon D600, the full frame monster.
