Vintage Camera Review: Nikon N2020


One day last year, my uncle gave me a gift that rekindled my interest in 35mm film photography–the Nikon N2020. My delight to hear him say, “It has a motor focus,” was followed by a chuckle of appreciation.

The Hexar AF is the camera that turned that kindle into a raging, fiery passion; but the N2020 has quite a bit going for it that makes it wonderful in some ways.

Photokina Announcements Raise Camera Manufacturers Stocks After Apple iPhone 7 Announcement


When the Apple iPhone 7 was announced, it was clear that Apple was going after the DSLR and mirrorless cameras in an intention to end their industry.

Apple states that this simulates the same effect of a larger sensor.

Because the world generally doesn’t know any better or understand the importance of ergonomics, lens options, the use of effective off-camera lighting, etc. the headlines of many a tech publication were discussing the death of traditional cameras. As a result, stocks went down. But after Photokina, things seemed to go back up–until we all realized that everyone was making development announcements due to recent earthquakes and natural disasters.

So here’s how the camera companies are doing after Photokina.

Review: Zeiss 15mm f2.8 Milvus (Nikon F)


When you look at a Zeiss lens, it’s very common to feel gear lust–and that’s what the Zeiss 15mm f2.8 Milvus lens will create in you. As the company’s widest lens and one of the newest additions to the Milvus lineup, it’s also one that will inspire you quite a bit due to its gorgeous way of rendering the world around you. Those that will really love this lens are landscape, architecture and real estate photographers. These shooters will also most likely be ones that wok professionally especially as they’re some of the few that will be able to justify the purchase to themselves.
