Our local galleries are nice, and for the most part, they get the job done.

The images we post on Facebook are great for late-breaking, man on the street, catch as catch can J-tech coolness.

But when it comes to the high-res presentation of a well assembled flickr gallery, well, flickr's hard to beat. And we're not getting kickbacks to say so, but even for the average photographer or simple snapshotter - a terabyte of free storage? Uhhhh, yes please.

Social
Like 
FacebookTwitterYouTube, and Instagram, flickr also has become a social media service: photos, video, comments, likes, and the ability to share things of interest among your friends/followers/the public.

Lots and Lots of Photos
Our flickr presence reaches all the way back to 2008 and includes ~4000 high-res photos of Japanese tech, culture, landscape, and more. Jump into our Photostream here, or browse for a specific topic among our 160+ Albums.

We shoot with everything from a Nikon D90 with a big beefy lens, to the Sony Cyber-Shot RX-100, to a Panasonic Lumix GH3 (GH4 when we can get our hands on one) a few iPhone 5Ss, and an Android device here and there as well (admittedly, smartphones struggle to qualify as high-res, but on occasion that's what's needed to get the job done!).

Action Selfies for Everyone (CASIO EX-FR10 REVIEW SUB-GALLERY) - AkihabaraNews.com
Ms. Erika Handa generously shared some of her shots with us. Sure, she works for CASIO, but in truth she’s far more representative of a civilian than Mr. Moodley the Executive-Level Camera Nerd Reviewer. As such, to round out our coverage of the camera, we were happy to share her selfies and groupies. And so...

REVIEW: Casio Selfie-Cam (Me, Myself & I)

The Casio EX-TR35 is a peculiar beast...
Were you to look at the specs, you’d see a 12 megapixel 1/23 inch backlit CMOS sensor mated to a 3.8mm (Full frame equivalent of 21mm) lens in a small, but not particularly impressive, plastic body.
