10 Retro-Style Cameras and Accessories.

Camera styles, like those of clothing, are cyclical. Right now, we’re in an age of retro and vintage gear that call to mind the days when rangefinders ruled and film was very much alive and well. But just because a camera is built around the latest technological advances doesn’t mean that it can’t have a retro look and feel. The same goes for accessories—from camera straps to individual camera cases to larger bags that can accommodate the latest DSLRs and lenses.

Here’s a look at a handful products that may appear to be retro but are, for the most part, built to get today’s job done.

The depth and spread of tools and features in Adobe Photoshop CS6 and Photoshop CS6 Extended software make the two editions applicable to a variety of work environments and suitable for a wide range of tasks by image-makers of all skill levels, from enthusiasts to professionals. In some environments, Photoshop is employed in a dedicated, standalone fashion, while in others, it is a pivotal part of a larger suite of programs. Making sure that your computer meets the minimum system requirements is an essential first step in ensuring that all features function correctly. Optimizing your Photoshop CS6 setup to suit your work environment and the tasks you regularly perform is the next step. All users will benefit from such optimization, but those who work with video, 3D content, or other large files—or those who process multiple files at once—will see the greatest performance gains. This paper provides guidance on best practices to optimize Photoshop CS6 performance with a combination of careful hardware selection and informed program setup.

What type of Photoshop user are you?
Determining how you typically use Photoshop will help you make more informed decisions about the best ways to optimize your setup. For instance, the photographer who regularly processes high-resolution images will greatly benefit from increasing the amount of system RAM available to Photoshop, whereas the designer who works with 3D models will obtain far better performance by installing a faster video card containing more video RAM. So, itemize the tasks that you regularly perform in Photoshop and then use the recommended setup details contained in this paper as the basis for optimizing your system.

Essential hardware
Computers are built with a variety of components. Each performs a different function, and together they affect the overall performance of Photoshop. The following sections describe system components and the roles they play in the image-editing and enhancement process.
