The Compact Camera Deserves Much Better Than What We Have Now

For years now, I’ve wanted a good compact camera. And I don’t just mean fixed lens cameras and point-and-shoot cameras. I’m specifically talking about something compact. If we’re discussing good point and shoots, there are lots. Everything worth discussing has an APS-C sensor or larger. The Canon G1X Mk III, Leica Q2, Fujifilm X100V, and the Sony RX1R Mk III are the big ones that come to mind. If the Panasonic LX1 Mk II were weather-resistant, I’d take it more seriously. And I think that’s the problem. More importantly, I think it stems from the fact that we’re not taking the compact seriously. And that, in my theory, is because the folks in charge never took them seriously....

Get a Refurbished Canon Camera at Some of the Best Prices We’ve Seen

It’s pretty hard to get your hands on a brand new Canon camera right now due to the global component issues. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t go for a refurbished one. In fact, most of the Canon gear that I’ve used throughout my career has been refurbished. Amazon currently has a lot of fantastic cameras on sale. Want the Canon EOS R6? It’s there as a bundle kit for a solid deal. Or you can go for a Canon EOS RP. Go take a look at what they’ve got....

The Lost Art of Freelensing. How to Get the Tilt-Shift Look in a Crafty Way

Freelensing is a trick that’s been long forgotten. A while ago, it was very fun to do. It delivered a completely different creative look that many of us loved. But we as the photography community haven’t really done it in a very long time. So in this post, I’m going to talk about freelensing, give a few tips, and tell you some of the best gear you can use to do it all for yourself....

You Quit Your Day Job to Become a Photographer. Now What?

The daily grind is something we all hate. You probably quit your day job recently because you’re very sick of how things work after the pandemic. The world made you open up your eyes a lot more. And so, you probably set about wanting to go after your dream. Now you want to be a professional photographer. So what do you do? Being a photographer is absolutely a job. It’s a hard one too. But you can make it easier on yourself....

The Solution to the Dirty Sony Sensor That Plagues Your Camera

There are lots of fantastic things about Sony cameras. But one of the biggest flaws that they all have is build quality. Do they work in the rain? Sure. Do they get dusty? Oh yeah. Unfortunately, there’s a compound problem with lots of Sony cameras. We just got done reviewing a few lenses on Sony bodies, and we ran into lots of dust issues. And guess what? Those issues seldom happen with other camera systems. So we broke this down further and decided we’d help you folks get around this issue. Well, sort of get around it. Here’s what you can do with your Sony cameras....

This Stunning Angenieux 35mm F2.5 Lens Belongs On Your Camera

The name Angenieux means a lot for us photographers that have been around for a long time. They’ve arguably made some of the most beautiful lenses in history. You typically hear about them concerning the cinema industry these days. But their vintage lenses are worth every single penny. The Rare Camera Store has an Angenieux 35mm f2.5 for only $500 right now. And it’s guaranteed to make a photographer very, very happy....

Where is the Real Fujifilm Sports Camera? And Lenses Too?

Fujifilm has done a fantastic job with photojournalism, street photography, landscapes, documentary, and portraiture. But where is the real Fujifilm sports camera? The Fujifilm XT4 is a fantastic camera for sure. Fujifilm can’t even keep it in stock at all. But we need something even higher grade for sports. I don’t think that that will come from the GFX lineup of cameras. But a Fujifilm sports camera will probably need to come from the X series. And to really stand out, it will need to do something better than what a full-frame camera can do....

Is The Canon EOS R3 Sensor Being Made by Sony?

For the first time in a long time, Canon is doing something that’s scaring me. Don’t get us wrong, there is lots of great Canon technology packed in there. Canon has briefed the press (us included) a few times on what’s coming with the Canon EOS R3. It’s currently being tested at the Olympics. And most importantly, this is the camera that the photojournalism, sports, and wildlife photography world really want. At the end of it all, though, what matters is the image. Let’s be real; any camera can make a great photo. But the sensors matter when it comes to providing variety. The sensor at the heart of the EOS R3 scares me, though....

This Canon Lens Brings Your Wide-Angle Film Dreams to Life

There has been a movement in the past decade to kill the fisheye lens. It’s unfortunate for sure. So instead, photographers have searched for the cleanest wide-angle lenses they could get. One of the best was the Canon 11-24mm f4 L USM EF Lens. Launched in 2015, it was one of the company’s last and best lenses for the EF mount. That means that it will work just fine on your Canon EF film camera. Best of all, we’ve got one in the Rara Camera Store right now....

Bad Photo Tip: How to Get More Wedding Photography Clients

Every photographer has their issues with trying to get more clients. But it’s very hard with wedding photography. Wedding photography clients can be some of the toughest to get. The statistics read all weird too. For years, folks have been spending less on weddings. Sometimes they spend less on photographers. Others tend to spend a lot more on photographers because it’s important to them. Wedding photography clients can also be tough to work with, so too can their parents. But today, we’re presenting you with a foolproof way to get more wedding photography clients....

Shoot Nat Geo Style Photos with a Beautiful, Vintage Nikon Lens

Back in 1994, I think lots of us weren’t paying attention to the photos Nat Geo posted on the web. Sure, their website was a convenient way to get their articles. Nothing could quite touch the quality of their magazine, though. And we’d like to believe that optics like this vintage Nikon 500mm f4 D Nikkor ED AF-I Lens shot those iconic photos. First launched in 1994, this vintage Nikon lens has held its value surprisingly well. And we shouldn’t expect anything less from the Rare Camera Store collaboration....

You Need Some Light in Your Life. So Get a New Flash for a Steal!

Lighting is something that every photographer should master in some way or another. I’d even argue that landscape photographers should learn how to use a flash. It will help them understand light so much better. And we’ve used a lot of light for many years. Not everyone needs the high end, studio lights. In fact, very few people do. Instead, most people just need a cheap, easily replaceable flash. And we recommend a bunch of these on Amazon. Curious to see some of our favorites? Well, head on our to our Lighting section and peruse some of our flash reviews....

Get That Used Camera You’ve Wanted at The Best Price

Amazon has a ton of great prices on used camera right now. In fact, some of them are the lowest prices that we’ve ever seen them at. So we encourage you to head on over via this link and check them out for yourself....

How to Flatten a Nose in Portrait Photography with Any Lens

The nose is something that loads of people are self-conscious about. It’s easy to look around and look for the best lenses for flattening the nose. There’s a lot of those online. There are also lots of methods on how to do it. But there’s another element that I think is incredibly important. And unfortunately, it’s one that most people don’t talk about because it’s the most complicated. So we’re going to discuss a bit of the obvious and some of the less obvious ones here....

Silver Goes Up. Is Film Photography Safe from This Latest Reddit Stunt?

Film photography is cool and all, but do you even know what’s in it? Do you know it’s not vegan? How many of you know that there’s gelatin in there? And did you know that there’s a layer in some film that caused Fujifilm to discontinue a film in America? Well, apparently, yet another ingredient is under fire: silver. The precious metal is an integral ingredient in film. Silver can also help dictate the price of film or development. Those of us who shoot film are often pretty loyal to specific labs. But we also tend to go shopping around when the price gets too high. And while companies tell us that their pricing is fine, I’d still be a bit concerned....

The Lens I’ve Wanted for So Long. Leica 50mm F2 Summicron-M Review

The Leica 50mm f2 Summicron M is a lens that every other manufacturer should pay attention to. There’s no contrast or micro-contrast trickery. There are no aspherical elements. This lens also doesn’t have apochromatic lens elements. What this lens has is a lot of sharpness and character. It’s small too! Not to mention that it’s also one of the most affordable in the Leica lens lineup. It has a classic design that newer photographers love. Best of all, you can adapt it to pretty much any camera system....

David Ellis Shoots in a Completely Unique Way with Lobospheres

My name is David Ellis. I am a writer, strategist, gadfly and documentary/fine arts photographer based in California and a member of the SanDisk Extreme Team. I started in photojournalism, where I learned the power of visual storytelling and of the immediacy of the photographic moment. It was a bit of a fluke. I took a job as a junior writer at an automotive magazine, and as I was headed out the door to cover my first story, the editor handed me a brick of Tri-X and said, “Bring back five usable black and whites.” I had a Pentax K1000 and a 50mm lens that I used about three times before that moment. Terrified, I fumbled my way through most of the 20 rolls and got the five shots. But I loved the process of seeing and creating images so much, I was hooked for life. My mantra, “See it, shoot it,” has been the driving force of my work for decades....

Want the Look of CineStill 800T in Digital? We’ve Got Some Bad News

I could and should just end this blog post with the statement above. But it’s true, the look of CineStill 800T isn’t possible without lots of post-production. And you can’t get it right out of the camera. You can come close to it, though, just by shooting at 3200K Tungsten white balance. But if anything, it delivers more of the look of a pure Tungsten Film. CineStill has a special, magical process that makes it get its unique image quality. But if you wanted to do it in post-production, you’d need to sit there and really work at it. We’ll explain it to you here, and we also believe that you should honestly just give in a shoot some film....

Get the Canon EOS R5 with a 24-105mm for a Great Price (And More!)

It’s a bit hard to get your hands on brand new Canon gear at the moment. But that’s alright, Amazon has a ton of awesome renewed and refurbished cameras and lenses. I personally prefer to buy refurbished since it usually means that it’s been extra well tested. You can get the Canon EOS R5 with the 24-105mm f4 and a bunch of other goodies for a really great price right now. The 24-105mm f4 is a great lens with lots of image stabilization capabilities. We were able to handhold the combo to well below 1/20th at the long end with the R5. If you want, there are even renewed lens options available at the moment, and some of them are tilt-shift!...

The Secret Ingredient for Better Portraits. PrismFX Radiant Filter Review

Last year, I bought almost every filter that PrismFX makes. As a camera review, it’s very easy to become bored. Every camera and lens brand tries harder and harder to erase character and fun from lenses. The software companies do the same thing. So we have to use lens filters or vintage glass to get the looks we want. When they launched the Prism FX Radiant filter, I was a bit skeptical. Some of the company’s other products were fairly mediocre. But quite honestly, this might be my favorite lens filter of any one brand that I’ve ever used....

Bad Photo Tip: The Secret to Getting Sharper Photos No One Told You

Lots of tips on the web for sharper photos talk about post-production. We’ve talked about this even on our website. But we’ve also discussed specular highlights and all that a flash can do for you. There’s a tip that no one ever told you about. In fact, I think that photographers are really just trying to keep the secret to themselves. That’s how deep this one cuts. Many photographers might think you’re crazy, but we encourage you to give this a shot before you take your next photo....

Why Tamron Is the Beginning of a Beautiful Thing for Fujifilm

When I woke up and read the press release on June 21st, I was seriously shocked. It seems like Fujifilm has finally started to lower its walls a bit. Tamron announced earlier that the Tamron 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 Di III-A VC VXD would be the first lens in their lineup to be made for both Sony and Fujifilm. I truly couldn’t have been more excited. Fujifilm has desperately needed to work with third parties a lot more. They’ve worked with Zeiss in the past, but Zeiss has more or less done an Irish Good-Bye to the photo industry. They’ve also worked with Profoto and a few other brands. But this is incredible. And Tamron will provide something that Fujifilm really doesn’t have but needed....

There’s Something Very Special About This Leica 50mm F1.4 Lens

For my fellow Leica lovers here, if you know, you know. But for the rest of us, you might not realize why this Leica 50mm f1.4 lens is just so special. I could do a very salesy thing of telling you that all Leica lenses are special. But that wouldn’t help anyone, and this site doesn’t do things like that. Right now, the Rare Camera store has a silver Leica 50mm f1.4 lens sitting all by its lonesome. And if you’re sick of modern lenses being too sharp and clinical, then you’re going to want to really pay attention to this one....

Our Best Selling Camera Bag Just Got a Price Drop

Last year, we reviewed the BAGSMART camera bag. For $65, it does pretty much everything that a photographer needs. You can store a laptop. There are dividers. You can store your camera stuff below and accessories up top. It’s also fairly stylish. But best of all, it’s really, really cheap when it comes to the price. And it just became even more affordable. You can snag yours for the cost of way less than a glass of really top shelf whiskey. Here’s where you can get it. And it will last a whole lot longer. I use it mostly to store my Sony gear in there. But if you have another lightweight camera system like Fujifilm X, Leica M, or Nikon Z, you can’t go wrong with this bag at all. It became our best selling camera bag via Amazon links for good reasons. Be sure to check out our review previously linked. ...

How Photographer Christopher Michel Makes Stunning, Soulful Portraits

“How important is that photo of you with your parents?” asks photographer Christopher Michel when asked about portraiture. “I’m guessing pretty darn important…Photography is a kind of alchemy – photographs almost always become more valuable over time.” Mr. Michel’s words ring true for lots of us these days after coming out of some very difficult times. For Christopher, making portraits is a collaborative process. As he tells us, the aim is to always create soulful portraits....

This Beautiful Nikon F in Slate Grey Will Capture Your Heart

Considering how much hype there is around the Nikon ZFc, anyone who owns a Nikon F is probably really treasuring theirs right now. Most Nikon F cameras come in the standard silver or black. But every now and again, you can find one in a rare color. What’s what we have today at the Rare Camera Store. This Nikon F comes in Slate Gray and was powder coated after purchase. It’s incredibly unique, stunning to look at, and more than happy to shoot a roll of Tri-X. Yes, cameras can be happy! 😉...

What We’d Like to See in The Sony RX1r III, If It Ever Comes Out

The idea of a true companion camera is one that makes the most sense with your phone. But good compact cameras can still be had. The Sony RX1 series was much loved by a lot of photographers. And for years, we’ve been expecting the Sony RX1r III to come out. Yet it hasn’t. Sony has been focusing very hard instead of much more advanced cameras. However, I think that Sony, being a passion-based company, is missing a huge opportunity here. The world of the premium compact camera is still worth looking at. So here’s what we’d want in the Sony RX1r III....

A Handy Guide to Shooting Film for the New Film Photographer

The world of film photography has returned. We’ve only been clamoring about it for years now. But it’s finally at a place where it’s stable enough to live alongside digital. Lots of us shoot film because it’s different. It’s fun. We get into a totally different mentality when we do it. You have to think about it in a totally different way. You’re forced to create in a unique way. So we’re exploring and giving you a quick guide to shooting film if you’re new to it....

The Worst Camera We’ve Ever Tested. Yashica MF-2 Super DX Review

I’m not even sure that this should be called a review. I’ll admit to a few things. I’m breaking our own review format that I’ve hammered into our team for over a decade. I’m also incredibly furious with my purchase of the Yashica MF-2 Super DX camera. When a friend told me about it, I wasn’t even aware. But it’s easy to get hyped up for something that you’ve wanted for a while. That hype, in this situation, leads to anger and fury. Before I purchased it, I went to look for reviews online. Unfortunately, there weren’t any that were objective. Long-time readers of this site know that I believe that no one is making bad cameras these days. However, they also know that I sometimes rightfully bring out the sledgehammer. In this case, I feel like the sledgehammer isn’t enough....

Natural Light Portrait Photography Is Easy with These 5 Lenses

Natural light portrait photography is easy to do but difficult to master. But indeed, some of the most beautiful portraits are shot with diffused window light, skylight, or outdoors. Always remember that a five-in-one reflector is your best friend. But the love of your life, the one you’ll always want by your side, is a lens that’s a dime a dozen. Finding the right balance of color, bokeh, and sharpness is always pretty tough. Luckily, the Phoblographer has reviewed the most lenses of any publication out there. And we’ve got an essential list and a few pro tips right here for you....

Why It’s Imperative That Olympus Makes Better Telephoto Lenses

The idea of an Olympus 200mm f1.8 PRO lens shouldn’t seem all that odd. In fact, I think it would be brilliant. A lens like this would effectively be a 400mm f3.6 with the light-gathering abilities of an f1.8 lens. Then slap it on a 2x teleconverter, and it will effectively become an 800mm f7.1 lens. Just think about how amazing that would be for wildlife and birding photography? Better yet, it would be lightweight and affordable compared to many other lens options out there. How could someone complain about a lens like this? This is where I feel Olympus needs to improve even more. They need more telephoto lenses....

Shooting Film? All Natural Light Portrait Photographers Need This Tool

The reflector is one of the most underrated and forgotten about items that any natural light portrait photographer could have. Folks tend to just forget it. Instead, they think that film will do a good enough job and that they can edit it later. But the reality is that you just get really bad-looking scans and edits. With film, you truly need to work at it in-camera. The majority of the work needs to be done when shooting. If anything, just clarity and a bit of sharpening can be done in post-production. ...

This Nikonos RS is The Dream of Many Film Photographers

The underwater photography community hasn’t had a lot of cameras specifically designed for it. Those that exist don’t really excite many photographers. But one camera that has always excited them is the Nikon Nikonos. This underwater camera was fully water-sealed and designed to handle the toughest conditions. Nikon tried to recreate it digitally years ago, but it never really took off. However, the Rare Camera Store has a pretty awesome Nikonos RS right now. But this is an exceptional package. You’re not only getting a camera. But you’re getting lenses and two flashes with it....

The Negative Supply Light Meter LM1 is Adorable, Small, and Powerful

It’s not often that light meters come out anymore. The light meters in digital cameras are often good enough for most folks. But if you shoot film, you don’t always have that option. There are lots of light meters out there. But the new Negative Supply Light Meter LM1 is promising to fit into your pocket. They’re claiming that it’s only a bit larger than a roll of 120 film. Some pretty awesome features come with it that film photographers are really going to love!...

The Photo Stitch Could Make Your Camera So Much Better

We’re not necessarily talking about the Brenizer effect. And we’re not just talking about panoramic features either. But instead, modern digital cameras are missing a lot of things that phones have done for a while. One of the oldest features is the photo stitch. You know–shooting a scene, moving your camera around, and the phone stitching all the images together. “Oh, I can do it in post-production,” you say. But why? Why do I need to spend all day in front of a computer? I already do this for work. I don’t want to return to a computer later on to do a photo stitch! What kind of an answer is that from manufacturers? It’s one thing to give that as an answer. It’s another thing to provide that answer and complain about smartphones killing their business....

How Does a Blind Photographer Make it So Far in Life?

If you’ve read this site for years, you probably know about something that makes me special. I’m legally blind. You can see it in my images and even on my personal website. But the fact is that as a legally blind photographer, I still end up nailing focus and having better images than most folks. Millions of people come to this site to trust the reviews I write and the work that I oversee amongst the staff. So you’ve got to wonder then how a blind guy gets so far, right? I mean, this is a photography blog, after all. Well, I’m going to get personal and hope that it inspires someone out there....

Looking for a New Panasonic Camera? We Found Some Great Prices

Panasonic cameras are fantastic for video. I don’t think anyone can really question that. But in terms of stil photography, they’ve really come into their own with the full frame lineup of cameras.

How Fabrice Ducouret Does Double Exposures Without Photoshop

My name is Fabrice Ducouret. I’m a French photographer living in California. I’ve been shooting film since I was a teenager and have a real passion for it. I’ve always found the process of shooting with film much more natural and in tune with my personality and interests than digital. I dabbled for a few years and then decided to become more serious and produced a lot of street photography. I was living in Paris, and there were many occasions to capture the life of this exceptional city. I used to use a lot of sub-miniature cameras, such as the Olympus Pen EE and the Minolta SLR 110....

Want the Great Film Look? Enjoy These Fujifilm Savings Until July 25th!

It’s tough to get your hands on brand new Fujifilm cameras. Indeed, there’s a huge components shortage around the world. But it’s pretty easy to get your hands on the last generation. For what it’s worth, we really liked most of the last generation of Fujifilm cameras. The Fujifilm XT3 returned us to a look that truly resembled film. And the XT30 felt so incredibly comfortable in our hands. Lucky for you all, they’re enjoying instant savings until July 25th. Take a look at these prices and snag one for yourself....

Camera Lenses Are Confusing, But This Will Make It Easy

I could easily start this paragraph with various lens nomenclatures and our autocorrect system would think that it was gibberish. I’m going to start naming some right now. GM. VC. OS. OSS. IS. VR. ED. ASPH. APO. DG. DN. HSM. STM. USM. Seriously, anyone that looks at these names wouldn’t know what they meant unless you really know photography and the brand. Photography manufacturers make their naming conventions complicated instead of simplifying them. And I think that’s a huge problem for sales and for messaging to the audience. Here’s what we need to do about camera lenses....

How to Photograph Black Skin and Other Dark Skin Like Mine

This post is motivated by watching a YouTuber with a Mamiya RB67 photograph folks with darker skin like mine. But nothing was done about the all-natural lighting. And as a result, there were no details in the person being photographed at all. It’s made me realize that there’s a stark lack of representation in models within photo instructionals. That shoot was done with a very digital workflow that relies on fixing it all in post-production. The problem could’ve been solved easily. Look, I’ve long believed the theory that color film and photography were developed for folks with lighter skin. I’ve done my own research into the matter myself for years now. And here’s what I’ve learned after photographing so many different types of models with a different skin. This is a quick, surface-level introduction to how to photograph black skin and dark skin like mine....

Behold This Authentic Reproduction of One of the First Leica Cameras

Everyone loves talking about how expensive Leica cameras are. But did you know that Leica model 0 is one of the most expensive out there? In fact, it was said to be the most expensive camera sold at one point. That original camera was sold for over $2 million. However, we’ve partnered with Blue Moon Camera to bring you a reproduction that’s far, far less expensive. In fact, it comes with a letter of authenticity from Leica Camera. What’s more, it actually works. ...

Sam Ziff Contrasts Silhouettes Against the Dazzling, Colorful World

My name is Sam Ziff. I’m a 17-year-old trying to work my way into the photography industry. I was wondering if you could take a look at some of my work for the phoblographer. So my interest in photography started when I got my first smartphone a few years ago, in about 2016. Whenever I was outside, I’d love to go off exploring and taking snaps of just about everything I saw, with no regard for composition, lighting subject, etc. Now I realize that this is just about the purest form of photography (in my opinion). ...
