The American Photography Archives Group (APAG) is an organization created by President and Founder Mary Engel, the daughter of Ruth Orkin and Morris Engel.

As exciting as new digital photographic equipment is, most of it isn’t that different then the cameras of Nicéphore Niépce, Louis-Jacques-Mandé Daguerre, and William Henry Fox Talbot. They all featured a single lens, and light sensitive material at the focal plane. For all their technical wizardry, the vast majority of digital cameras are the same, except for a digital sensor in place of light sensitive metal, glass, paper, or film. The new Light L16 camera is a radical departure that could shake the foundations of current camera design. In this extended interview with Co-Founder & CEO Dave Grannan, and Co-Founder & CTO Dr. Rajiv Laroia, we learn the story of this remarkable new technology. Recorded at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show by Harris Fogel and John Mulhern III.

The gift of High Definition Music is one of Santa’s favorite gifts. First of all, he doesn’t have to slide down a dirty chimney, or deal with an attitude heavy doorman, so an easy download really makes Santa’s day. Plus, when Santa has had to listen to Muzak versions of holiday favorites, a high resolution, high sampling rate, wide bit-depth version, comes as a serious relief to our favorite holiday gift giver. We look at some of last year’s favorite releases from HD Tracks; one of the pioneers in providing high-resolution audio downloads, as well as industry approaches to brand High-Res Audio for consumers.
