Give us your best shot

ALEX MAK HON-CHEE is intently studying a Rolleiflex Old Standard camera, circa 1932. The battered German-made camera has seen better days and is a stark contrast to the shiny, new phone camera the teenager is using to record his visit to the Hong Kong Heritage Museum's recently opened Cameras Inside-Out exhibition.

Asian exposure

AS THIS YEAR'S Noorderlicht Photofestival in the Netherlands turns its eyes on South and Southeast Asia, the view is one of bewildering diversity: from musings of a young Filipino coming of age while being shackled by parental domination, to a documentary on the Catholic faith in Indonesia, and photoweavings of the Vietnam war using images from the press and Hollywood movies.

Picture perfect

I REMEMBER WELL my first (and only) professional family portrait. I must have been about 12 or 13. My sisters, brother and I had been dreading the date for weeks, as my mother issued increasingly stern proclamations about how much the studio session was going to cost, and how pullers of funny faces would be dealt with swiftly and harshly.

Zooming ahead

Ever since Panasonic put a big optical zoom lens on its F1 digital camera, all other camera makers have released similar models. The latest Kodak is a strong competitor. It combines the big zoom with 6-megapixel imaging and a big 2.5-inch LCD display.

Eye of the storm

Few people look out of their window at a series of ominous storm clouds rapidly descending and have the urge to go hiking. Landscape photographer Edward Stokes is one of the few.

Looking towards Wong Nai Chung Gap from his living-room window, he shakes his head with regret. 'It would be amazing to be up in those hills now photographing those clouds coming in,' he says.

Memorable moments forever

Portrait photography has

long since moved on from studio images with dark backgrounds and stiff poses that look as if they come from the Victorian era.

A family portrait no longer means austere faces, rigid bodies and formal settings.

Kodak gets the big picture

If you're on a budget, but looking for a versatile digital camera with a zoom lens, Kodak's new mega-zoom model may fit the bill.

The EasyShare Z650 features a big 10X optical zoom lens from optics specialist Schneider-Kreuznach Variogon, but is priced on par with most consumer digital cameras.
