I got a sneak peek at a pre-production version of the new Nikon Z fc and thought I’d share a handful of thoughts.
An overabundance of junk email this morning reminded me that turning a passion into profit sometimes means returning to one very basic concept.
Fujifilm probably holds the crown when it comes to APS-C cameras. Cameras such as the X-T series and the X100 series have made Fujifilm a household name among many professionals. One of the best and worst things about Fujifilm is the huge number of APS-C cameras on the market. Due to this, how do you decide which camera is best for you?
Gear acquisition syndrome, or G.A.S, is a name for those of us that like to accumulate tech gear, and in this case specifically, photographic equipment, normally in detriment to the learning process. If you struggle with G.A.S, then here are 10 ways to cure yourself.
35mm, 50mm, and 85mm lenses are some of the most popular out there, offering relatively neutral focal lengths quite suitable for portraiture. However, each one renders your subject quite differently and is appropriate for different situations. This great video compares the three focal lengths and will show you the sort of images you can get from each to help you choose the right for your work.
Sony's a7 and a9 lines and the new a1 get the majority of the attention from the photography community, but the a6000 line it still widely respected as a portable and capable line. This excellent video review takes a look at their APS-C flagship, the a6600, and the sort of image quality and performance you can expect from it in practice.
The new Sony FE 14mm f/1.8 GM lens offers an extreme combination of focal length and maximum aperture that create unique creative opportunities and does so in an impressively small package. This excellent video review takes a look at the sort of performance and image quality you can expect from it in practice.
The Nikon Z fc has arrived, offering the company's latest mirrorless technology in tandem with a retro-inspired design that aims to capitalize on both the aesthetic of older cameras and their manual controls that return to a purer form of photography. With a small size and affordable price, it looks like a potential hit for Nikon, and this awesome video review takes a first look at the camera and what you can expect.
Undoubtedly one of the most revered focal lengths in portrait photography, this prime has many fans, despite its obvious limitations. Watch behind-the-scenes of a portrait shoot using the fastest 135mm on the market and then ask a loved one to hide your bank card.
The Sony a7 III is a great camera, but it is a few years old now, and creatives are starting to wonder what the company will offer in the a7 IV. What would you like to see?
Tamron has been on a roll the last few years, producing lenses that offer great performance and image quality in tandem with smart compromises that help them undercut the prices of first-party manufacturers, often by significant amounts. The 150-500mm f/5-6.7 Di III VXD is one of their latest, and this awesome video review takes a look at the lens and the kind of performance and image quality you can expect from it in practice.
Released late last year, the Nikon 50mm f/1.2 S is a stunning lens and welcome addition to the options available for the Z mount. However sharp and fast it might be, is it let down by an autofocus system that simply doesn’t compare to those of Canon and Sony?
One of the greatest advancements gear-wise of the last few years has been the proliferation of affordable but high-quality supertelephoto zoom lenses, bringing ultra-long focal lengths and genres like wildlife to many more photographers than before. Nonetheless, at the very top end, supertelephoto prime lenses still sit as the professional equipment of choice, and they command quite high prices — five digits, in fact. So, what does that money get you? This great video review takes a look.
Do you like photographing long exposures with an ND filter, but don’t like carrying a large filter holder and square ND filters? In that case, Haida’s NanoPro magnetic filters may be a nice solution.
Should you get a prime lens or a zoom lens? Do you need a really fast lens or can you compromise? Three great Nikon lenses are put against each other here and those questions, plus more, are examined.
