Lowepro's well-designed camera bags have evolved into multi-tasking adventure bags that carry much more than just a camera and its accessories. The new Nova Sport 35L AW holds a mother lode of gear. The weather-resistant shoulder bag measures about 16-by-11-by-12 inches, but weighs less than 3 pounds. Inside, modular, adjustable foam-padded compartments organize up to two full-size cameras with attached zoom lenses, two to four additional lenses, flash units, a tablet or laptop (up to 13-inch diameter)

Less than a mile into her taxi ride, a woman opened the vehicle's glass divider and threatened the Yellow Cab driver with a box cutter, demanding "50 bucks. " When he refused, she whipped out a hammer and took aim at his head. “When she brought the hammer ... to hit my head ... at that point I knew that she meant business,” Robby Williams, the taxi driver whose dashboard camera caught the Long Beach incident, told KTLA-TV. Long Beach police on Tuesday released the video, asking the public's help in identifying the passenger.

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa -- Wildlife photographer Greg du Toit has stared down lionesses, been charged by hippos and been chased by an angry bull elephant. He's been trampled by a buffalo ("But it didn't gore me") and had close encounters with crocodiles ("But I never got bitten"). Waiting sometimes for months submerged in shallow water for the perfect shot, the South African has been eaten alive by tsetse flies and mosquitoes. He's had malaria twice and a much nastier tropical disease called bilharzia twice.

The gunmen appear calm, almost nonchalant as they saunter through a Kenyan shopping mall firing automatic rifles. Terrified shoppers dive for cover as bullets streak by. Security camera video obtained by CNN from the Westgate mall in Nairobi provides chilling new details of the attack last month that claimed the lives of at least 67 civilians and soldiers and injured many more. During hours of video from the first day of a four-day siege, only four attackers are seen, all of them men, CNN reported .

An LAPD officer was charged this week with assault under color of authority for kicking a handcuffed woman, who later died, in the groin during an arrest last year in South Los Angeles. The Los Angeles County district attorney charged LAPD Officer Mary O'Callaghan, 48, on Wednesday in connection with the July 22, 2012, incident that ended with the death of Alesia Thomas. O'Callaghan was one of several officers sent to Thomas' home in the 9100 block of South Broadway Avenue to investigate after she abandoned her children at a South L.A. police station.

Since joining the Los Angeles Police Commission last month, Steve Soboroff has been making calls to some of the city's deepest pockets, asking them to pony up the $1 million he says he needs to jump-start an ambitious project: outfitting LAPD officers with small video cameras that would record their encounters with people. His unorthodox approach to fundraising for the Los Angeles Police Department has paid dividends and got its latest boost Tuesday when the Dodgers and members of the team's ownership group announced a $250,000 donation to the effort.

The most common question I've gotten since Apple's iPhone event last Tuesday is this: Should I buy the iPhone 5s or the iPhone 5c? The answer is easy: the iPhone 5s. At the iPhone event Apple touted three major advances in the iPhone 5s. The first was the 64-bit processor, which makes the phone twice as fast as the iPhone 5. And the second was the fingerprint scanner, which offers added security. These are fine evolutions, but not the sort of thing that I think will inspire most folks to rush out the door for a new iPhone.  PHOTOS: Biggest tech flops of 2013 so far But the clear difference in my mind is the new iSight camera on the iPhone 5s. It's a huge upgrade.
