First Impressions: Lomography Neptune Convertible Art Lenses (EXCLUSIVE)

Today, Lomography is announcing a brand new series of unconventional lenses designed for Canon and Nikon DSLR cameras; they’re called the Lomography Neptune Convertible Art Lenses. They’re a curious and extremely different system based on an older camera and lens system–which is right in line with what Lomography tends to do. The Lomography Neptune Convertible Art lenses are a three element system which all start with a mounting system. The aperture and focusing are built into the lens base unit that attaches to your camera. Then from there, you attach another optic. The optics are switched out when you want a different field of view and can also work with special shaped apertures.

I had a moment to head over to the Lomography Gallery Store here in NYC and took a look.

Picking Specialized Cameras vs Do It All Cameras

There is this epidemic in the photography industry right now where everyone wants every camera to do everything better than every other camera for a lower price. This is why you always see walls of complaint comments when new cameras are announced, it does this well but not that, or lacks in this one feature that so and so really wanted.

Relax, Ricoh Isn’t Going to Kill the Pentax Brand or Their Cameras (Confirmed)

Don’t worry Pentax users, you can all breathe a sigh of relief because Ricoh isn’t planning on killing off the Pentax brand and probably not the Ricoh GR series either. The rumor started not too long ago when Ricoh made a statement that could have been interpreted as the company considering closing their camera business and Pentax down. Of course with the viral nature of the internet and the way photographers love to speculate on Facebook and other social media platforms, it spread across the photo world like wildfire. Adding fuel to that wildfire is a very big fact: despite the fact that Pentax and Ricoh do a great job producing fantastic cameras that often stand out from all the rest, their sales just have never quite been there.

However, the company offered a clarification on the statement.

Review: Tamron AF 180mm f3.5 Di SP A/M FEC LD (IF) 1:1 Macro (Canon EF)

Before the company started to really revamp their lenses, Tamron’s offerings were actually pretty darn good to start. So on a whim of curiousity, I decided to try the Tamron AF 180mm f3.5 Di SP A/M FEC LD (IF) 1:1 Macro–surely a long telephoto macro lens will have to be great, right? Truthfully, it really is; but it isn’t without its own faults partially due to how DSLR cameras work. Though for the enthusiast photographer, you’ll probably really appreciate what it’s capable of.

And at the same time, you’ll need to shoot it like a pro.

Photographer Anirban Chatterjee is a Melbourne based photographer. He doesn’t like labels, but if you were to label him, he’d be a street shooter. “Personally, I think myself as a narrator who uses the street as a stage and real people as characters to tell stories.” says Anirban. When you look at his work, it makes a whole lot of sense. His photos combine aspects of many schools of thought in the genre.
