One of the biggest reasons I take pictures on the regular is a fear of forgetting, but as it turns out, all those pictures may be making my memories more likely to go fuzzy. There are so many small, delicious slices of life that I’m afraid will slip away forever or go undocumented somewhere in my head if I don’t snap a quick photo. I worry that I’ll lose perspective on the way I thought and felt during whole chunks of my past, though I suppose we’re all doomed to lose memories to some degree as we get older. What I should do about this is keep more of a written record of things, but instead I resort to the quicker method of taking photos. Thanks to smartphones with cameras and their all-too-easy to access apps like Instagram, Snapchat and Facebook, we’re all falling down a rabbit hole of constant capturing. You know when you go to a concert and everyone is holding their phone up to take a video instead of listening to the live music they paid for? Yeah, I’m pretty sure that wasn’t always normal.

Unexpected Nerd Girl Porn Alert! theBERRY has a gallery of 28 extremely attractive dudes holding cameras that gave me a sudden and surprising girl boner this afternoon. I could make a point-and-shoot joke here, but shall refrain and instead suggest you click on over to peruse the pics yourself.
Lately, I’ve been fancying myself a bit of a photographer. Thank you, Instagram! But I think I’m ready to graduate a camera that isn’t my phone. And that uses actual film—remember that stuff? And so, I am lusting after this camera which takes gorgeous fisheye photos. And looks so much like something a character on “The Jetsons” would carry.
Cameras and social networking go hand-in-hand. Both make it possible to take your friends on your journey with you, even if they’re across the country. But for some moments of creativity or inspiration, a simple smartphone camera just won’t do. Instead, you need something that packs a stylish technological punch. Enter Diane Von Furstenberg‘s limited-edition Canon G-12. Not only is this super haute camera decked out with DVF’s iconic Andy Warhol-designed lip print in Swarovski crystals, but it also makes it really difficult to take a blurry picture. That’s a win-win for the true photographer and style maven! But you only have one day to snag the DVF camera on AHALife. Now before you ask, find out what exactly AHALife is after the jump.

Man, this is one sexy camera. I started taking photographs in 2002 on a little silver digital camera that belonged to my boyfriend-at-the-time. Eventually, I got my own digital camera. And, earlier this year, I upgraded to a pretty nice one. You know, it’s got all the bells and whistles, and it’s big, bulky, and black. But check out this new Pentax K-x DSLR. Technology isn’t always sexy — think back to your first computer — and cameras are generally more functional than beautiful. The K-x breaks all those rules. I love the color: scarlet. It’s “only” $650, and it shoots video, too. It also comes in white or navy, in case you need your camera to match your shoes. [Gizmodo] Keep reading »
We love this Super Sampler Camera from Lomography! Not only does it take four pictures at once, but it’s also super affordable. The two settings let you snap moving pics in two different speeds — four photos in 2 seconds or 0.2 seconds. This is the fastest way to tell a story and spice up that scrapbook. [$44.95, Adorama] Keep reading »
It might be a bit of a splurge, but this new Nikon digital camera is so worth it. The Coolpix S60 (yes, the one in the commercials with Ashton) has a 3.5 inch touch panel LCD screen and you can use a handy little wand to write messages on the screen which display on the picture (a la Perez Hilton). Genius, right? We’re partial to the burgundy color on the left…it also comes in black, white, pink, bronze and red, so pick your color and start shooting. [$279.99, Amazon.com] Keep reading »
The new T5000 Camera, which is taking off this weekend at a British exhibition, will also be taking off peopleâ€™s clothes. ThruVision promises their crafty cameras can see through clothing to identify any contents a person maybe carrying. Using T-ray (natural electromagnetic waves) technology that has been applied by the European Space Agency on dying stars, the camera will give the photographer x-ray vision. It produces a picture that distinguishes items — flour from cocaine, a plastic toy from a real gun — along with an outline of the body. Sure, the camera may be designed to search for an actual weapon, but it also could be used to check if your new sexy boyfriend is packing heat. Better yet, with this baby, you can even investigate Brad Pittâ€™s suspicious package. You just have to get within 80-feet of the target and then wham, bam, thank you maâ€™am!
