7 cool and quirky gadgets for photographers

These photo-related accessories are useful, well-made, and worth consideration by any serious shooter, no matter what their skill level.

LensAlign



When shooting at f1.8 or wider, your depth of field is so shallow that even a slight mis-focus can wreck your image. Many new cameras now include an "autofocus fine tuning" or "autofocus microadjustment" feature that lets you calibrate your camera's autofocus mechanism for particular lenses, correcting for any mis-alignment. LensAlign is a calibration system that takes advantage of these features to ensure that your lenses are focusing as accurately as possible. The LensAlign rig attaches to your tripod and includes test targets that you focus on to determine how much fine tuning is necessary. It also includes a mechanism for ensuring that your camera is properly oriented in relation to the calibration targets.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
