Ultra-zoom, point-and-shoot compact cameras comprise a vibrant and enduring niche because they appeal to a broad spectrum of consumers. From casual shooters to serious enthusiasts—and even some pros—these all-around imaging tools have appeal. Bridge cameras combine the convenience and simplicity of P&S operation with the high performance of full-system cameras. They allow shooters to capture everything from the widest landscapes to dynamic close-ups in precise detail—all without changing lenses.
Can you still get film for that thing?” people ask when they spot me shooting with one of my vintage 35mm SLRs. When I tell them you can still buy 35mm color print film and one-time-use film cameras at Walmart, they’re often astonished. While it’s highly unlikely that film will ever replace digital as the primary image capture medium, analog photography is currently doing quite well as a robust, multifaceted niche. And it is unlikely to be relegated to the dustbin of history anytime soon.
The majority of professional photographers and videographers today are multimedia or crossover shooters. Indeed, the ability to turn out pro-caliber video as well as topnotch still images is essential in specialties ranging from wedding and advertising photography to documentary photojournalism. That’s why so many working pros gravitate to cameras like the pro ILC models detailed here.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
