Bron Imaging Group has reinvented the camera strap, which should benefit travelers toting bulky cameras. Designed to improve both comfort and security, Bron's Sun Sniper Pro padded adjustable camera straps are nylon, reinforced internally with steel wire, so they won't break and can't be snipped by would-be thieves. Unlike most conventional camera straps, which buckle or hook onto metal loops on the sides of the camera, the Sun Sniper attaches via a stainless-steel ball bearing that screws into the tripod socket on the bottom of the camera, making for more flexible movement when lifting to shoot.

Winter is a grand time to make pictures outdoors, but it's also bad news for camera equipment. Batteries lose their zip. Shutters grow sluggish and film becomes brittle - the shutter speed you choose may not be the one you get, and the film sprockets tear inside your camera. Lenses fog up. Exposure meters begin acting strange when you most need them to expose subjects properly against the glare of ice or snow. You can't expect the camera that served so well in the spring and summer to function flawlessly in the cold unless you take care of it. For starters, install fresh batteries for everything - the meter, winder and flash.

"What you see is what you get" in new picture grabbers from Canon, Sharp and Polaroid. Canon has dreamed up a 35mm still camera so smart you'll think it's reading your mind. No matter where the object of your affection is moving within the field of the viewfinder, the camera knows what to keep in focus. Conventional auto-focus systems zero in only on the object in the direct center of the viewfinder. Canon's system, dubbed "eye-controlled autofocus," bounces a reflected infrared beam off the eyeball that's glued to the viewfinder.

On Boston's Beacon Hill, a bright-red door, illuminated by a hanging lantern and framed by a brick archway, struck me as beautiful. So I pointed my camera and shot picture after picture until the door swung open, and a barefoot guy emerged, his hair a little tousled, his white T-shirt wrinkled from sleep. He didn't look up at the group of camera-wielding tourists standing feet away from him on the sidewalk. He simply bent over, plucked the newspaper from his stoop, and retreated quickly back into the house.

A movie like Everlasting Moments comes along maybe once in a decade. It is a portrait, incandescent and inspiring, of an accidental portraitist. She is Maria Larsson, Finnish emigrant to the port city of Malmo, Sweden, at the dawn of the 20th century. Maria, a working-class woman without pretensions, is nonetheless an artist of considerable gifts. Her medium is photography. Watch how instinctively she frames a fugitive image, like a child gently cupping a butterfly in her hands.

A Main Line man accused of sexually abusing a family member has been charged with assault for striking the hand of a journalist, swatting at his camera, and knocking it to the ground and damaging it. In addition to simple assault, Charles Robinson, 60, of Gable Road in Paoli, was charged this week with harassment and criminal mischief, according to public records. On Jan. 8, as Robinson left the Newtown Square court after waiving a preliminary hearing in the sexual assault case, he shoved several members of the media and struck the hand of Richard Ilgenfritz, a reporter with Main Line Media News, knocking his Nikon camera out of his hand.

A camera, however expensive or sophisticated, does not a photographer make. That point has been made here, in varying degrees of shrillness, no fewer than a dozen times in the last year alone, but it bears repeating. The photographer has to learn to see, to think, to compose through the viewfinder, and to move around to get the best photographs. The photographer who does all these well will find almost any camera an adequate tool. In other words, photographers need to worry less about the special gear they think they need and more about training themselves to use the cameras they already have.

John Daly smashed a spectator's camera into a tree yesterday while shooting a 6-over 78 in the first round of the Australian Open in Sydney. After pushing his tee shot wide on the ninth hole at the Royal Sydney Golf Club, Daly walked into a clump of trees, where spectator Brad Clegg tried to take a picture at close range. Daly snatched the camera and smashed it against the nearest tree, telling the man: "You want it back, I'll buy you a new one. " He later released a statement saying Clegg got too close.

If Michael Jordan hits a home run and it's not on video, did it happen? The Birmingham Barons outfielder, whose career highlights so far have been filmed inside NBA arenas, hopes to find a videotape of his first professional home run. Jordan's homer at Hoover (Ala.) Stadium on Saturday came so late in the evening that local television photographers had already packed up. "It was the bottom of the eighth and a late night," said team spokesman Chris Pika. "We would like to have a copy of it, and I think Michael would, too. " So the Barons are trying to get the word out to anyone in the record crowd of 13,751 who might have had a camera running when Jordan hit his homer.

At the Center for Works on Paper, images from the outside world project on a panorama of walls, like a moving picture made of reality. An exhibit titled "Collecting Place: Inside the Camera Obscura at Fleisher Art Memorial" invites visitors into a pitch-dark room. At first, they stumble into two poles and wade over to a bench. But as their eyes adjust after about five minutes in the dark, buildings magically appear and cars zoom by. Three slits by covered windows determine what will become subjects.

A plan to install 10 surveillance cameras in high-crime areas of Pottstown was presented to the borough council this week. The camera system, which is being funded by the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office, will be monitored around the clock by the Pottstown Police Department, said Assistant District Attorney Brianna Ringwood. The cameras, which can be moved to different locations as needed, will be useful in apprehending suspects and aiding investigations, Ringwood said.

SPRINGFIELD, N.J. – The beauty of televising sporting events is that there are very few secrets anymore, since cameras are virtually everywhere. That, of course, can also be a curse, because sometimes it creates undue insight from afar.  Not to mention needless controversy. And hasn't golf had enough of that lately? Take the nearly 10 minutes it took Jordan Spieth to take a free drop from a gravely cart path on No. 7 Friday at Baltusrol Golf Club in the second round of the 98th PGA Championship, which happened to be his 16th hole since his threesome had started on the back side.

Body cameras worn by police will get a test run in parts of Bucks County starting Wednesday, ahead of a planned roll-out for several more law enforcement agencies in the fall. Ultimately, they will join agencies across the country that have begun using body cameras, a trend spurred, in part, by growing attention to police shootings, primarily of black men. Video footage, in both cases taken by witnesses, helped bring national attention to the deaths of Alton Sterling in Louisiana and Philando Castile in Minnesota earlier this month, sparking protests and outrage.

The Philadelphia School District's bills for a case it lost in federal court last month over a no-bid contract for security cameras could total $3.6 million. Following a six-day trial in late June, a federal jury found that the district and former Superintendent Arlene C. Ackerman had discriminated against Security & Data Technologies Inc. (SDT) when she steered a $7.5 million no-bid contract to a smaller, minority-owned firm that had not sought the work. Jurors awarded the losing firm $2.3 million in damages.

Spotting a Hollywood megastar on set anywhere in Southeastern Pennsylvania this year will take more than a telephoto lens or a lucky break. Because for the first time in a good decade, no major feature films are slotted to be shot in or around the nation's fifth-largest city this year. The grim milestone has film boosters on edge in a region once adept at luring big-money producers to its cobblestone alleys and tree-lined suburbs. Pennsylvania's film tax credit is no longer working the same big-screen magic here.

Guess who's coming over this week. The USA. OK, I'm exaggerating. But only a little. Let me explain. About a month or so ago, I found out that Francesca and I were scheduled to be on Good Morning America , which is very big news. We were booked to talk about our funny series that's coming out next month, as well as my thrillers and novels. We were superexcited because the show has a bazillion viewers, and obviously, this would expose our books to a national audience.

Next week, Burlington Township Police Department officers will add a tool to their arsenals: body-worn cameras. On Monday, five members of the local force will come to work with baseball-size cameras affixed to their blue uniform shirts. The more than three dozen remaining officers in the department will begin using the cameras by September, after completing individual training. A combination of capital funds and grants amounting to $68,500, including $22,000 from the state Attorney General's Body Worn Camera Assistance Fund, has bought the department 50 cameras for its 43 officers.

The Chester Police Department announced Monday the roll-out of body cameras for 10 patrol officers, marking the first step toward increased transparency for a force that has been beset by tensions with its community. The move comes after outcry this winter over two police-involved shootings that occurred within five weeks earlier this year. After the first shooting, Mayor Thaddeus Kirkland announced in February at a town hall meeting that body cameras and increased surveillance cameras are a priority for his administration.
