I'm very happy to announce that we're introducing a cool new feature on RAW in this, our anniversary month: Reviews of cameras, lenses, and accessories by a local group of experienced photographers and product reviewers who have started a new website, Head-2-Head Reviews.

As the name implies, they do their reviews by choosing two similar pieces of equipment and comparing them. They cover every photography product available, from the newest pro-grade digital backs down to the best camera to buy for your toddler.

The staff has decades of experience as working commercial and fine art photographers as well as professional photo industry product reviewers, and they put that experience to good use evaluating products and distilling them down to their key differentiators. They present side-by-side comparisons of similar products, clearly showing the advantages and disadvantages of each. They use advanced tools and tests to cut through marketing fluff and clearly demonstrate which cameras rise to the top.

The goal is to arm you with the best possible information to make the right choices when making purchases that can be costly.

We'll run one of their head-to-head reviews every other week here on RAW. The first review is ready now; it's a comparison of two cameras -- the Pentax Optio W60 and the Olympus Style 1050 SW -- that can be used underwater or in extremely low temperatures. Which emerged on top? Find out here and watch for more reviews in the coming months.

Life and wildlife in Madagascar
For years before I started college, I knew I wanted to spend a semester studying abroad, but I wasn't sure where. By my junior year at Brandeis, I made up my mind to travel somewhere off the beaten path, and, of course, Madagascar is pretty far off the beaten path for someone like me....
An essay about Rebirth Workshops
Now that it's been several months since I returned from a week-long Rebirth Workshop in Mississippi, I'm happy to look back and provide an overview of what we did that made it such an intense experience for me as a photographer....
Photography apps for your phone
Thinking of ditching your separate camera and moving to just using your phone for all your photos? What apps should you go for? Instagram made headlines recently after being bought by Facebook for $1 billion. What does it include, and what else is out there?...
