Over at the Blind Photographer’s blog, I have a posting on what cameras a blind or visually impaired photographer can choose from to help them take pictures and reach their inner creativity despite what some may call for us, “a disability.” I personally see it as an advantage for me as I can see one way with my glasses on and another way without them. Amongst my choices are the Leica M9, Olympus EP-2, Panasonic GF-1, GH1, the Canon S90 and more. Head on over there for my reasons why. Also remember to please support The Phoblographer by please clicking the links and purchasing the items as we get a small portion of the monies spent.

When I got into this industry years ago, one thing really confused me almost as much as how much certain older photographers tend to treat the younger generation of us: photo vests. I’m completely positive that you’ve all seen them: a photographer of a certain distinguishment (or trying to show off without having said distinguishment) wearing their vests that look a lot like safari vests. You know, almost as if they’re going to go out on an African safari at all times without being anywhere near something like a safari. Walking down the streets doing street photography? You’ll see a photo vest. In the studio? Photo vest! Hiking? Yup, A Photo vest!
When Canon introduced their new Mirrorless cameras earlier on this year (The EOS R) one of the stand out features was that the lens mount was so huge. While other manufacturers like Sony have made all things Mirrorless smaller, the late comer to the Mirrorless party seems to have decided that bigger is better. In a recently released interview, Canon engineers seem to be having a sly dig at Sony by saying that lenses with smaller mounts are far less capable than those with larger mounts. Read on after the break to find out more about what the Canon engineers are wafting on about.
