Camera Battery Life: Keep Batteries Healthy

In our post the other day we suggested a few tips on how to extend the life of your digital camera battery while taking photos. In an ideal world every battery would last forever, but we all know that isn’t yet the case. In fact with older digital camera batteries you may have started to notice that they don’t last as long as they used to. In many cases this will get so bad that you have to buy new batteries, which often aren’t cheap, but once you get them you realise how bad your old batteries were. Plus that means we’re throwing away old batteries that contain many environmentally unfriendly chemicals – less than wonderufl.

So how can we maximise the lifespan and capacity of our camera batteries? Read on for some hints…

Camera Battery Life: Extending During Use

In the world of digital photography how long your battery lasts is a big issue. Whereas old school film cameras tended to use easily replaceable standard size batteries, digital cameras tend to have their own, proprietary rechargable batteries which, while they tend to last a long time, are tricky to quickly replace while out and about. Digital cameras also suck battery life much more quickly than their elder film brethren, simply because they have so many more electrical parts to manage – preview screens, storing to memory cards and giving you all those amazing face focussing functions. So how do you ensure you get the most shots out of your battery when out and about?

Canon Announce G11 and PowerShot S90

Canon have made a couple of announcements in their small digital camera range – an update to the Canon G-Series, the G11, and the firing up of the S-Series again after a haitus of 3 years with the new Canon Powershot S90.

Canon G11

Regular readers of this blog will know that I’m a huge fan of Canon cameras. They have consistently introduced feature sets and cameras that most photographers fall over themselves to own for very different reasons. Their latest prosumer SLR, the Canon 5D Mk II is an example of that customer focus – a camera released last year that even now, six months in, is harder to buy than gold dust from the huge demand.

London Police Told to ‘Back Off’ Photographers

We’ve posted a few times recently on the worrying trend of the British police to stop and allegedly harass photographers as they go around doing what they enjoy doing. It’s one of those aspects of modern society that hasn’t gone down too well with many people – especially photographers! The belief that shouting ‘terrorist!’ at someone gives you the right to negate their rights is one that we should all stand up against. And thankfully now the London Met has decided to listen.

New guidelines have been released by the London Met informing their officers that photographers are not to be treated as terrorists unless there is reasonable suspicion. This means no more stopping people who are out and about photographing random things, as many of us photographers are wont to do as we’re a strange bunch. Not only do the guidelines stress the importance of not abusing terrorism related powers, they also advise on how to work with the media during normal day to day police activities, including the advice to set up vantage points for media as soon as is possible. All good stuff, and we should raise a cheer of thanks to those who have worked tirelessly to ensure our rights as photographers. Huhrah! [From The Register]

Inside the Rat Pack with Sammy Davis, Jr

Sammy Davis, Jr - Photographer

Sammy Davis, Jr – the original Man in the Mirror

The classic era of the Rat Pack, with Frank Sinatra, Matt Munroe and Sammy Davis Jr., evoke such memories in most of us that images of that time seem hugely familiar and personal. For Sammy Davis, Jr. these images are personal, the record of a man intimately involved with the swinging scene of the time. An innovator who carried a camera around to record his life at a time when it was practically unheard of, especially amongst the celebrity set.

You can see Davis’ amazing insider images in a book simply called ‘Photo by Sammy Davis, Jr.’. A wonderful evocative mix of celebrity and social insight that any fan of that era should own. [From Cool Hunting]
