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

For more stories like this, please subscribe to the Phoblographer.

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.

For more stories like this, please subscribe to the Phoblographer.

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!

Our Best Selling Camera Bag Just Got a Price Drop

For more stories like this, please subscribe to the Phoblographer.

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.

The Nikon Z5 Is an Excellent Camera, and It’s Selling at a Good Price Right Now

For more stories like this, please subscribe to The Phoblographer.

The Nikon z5 is one of our favorite cameras for the system. It’s more or less a baby z6 with the dual SD card slots we wanted. Through and through, it’s a decent camera if you’re a photographer who likes the slower process. It’s not going to capture the decisive moment any time soon, but it’s surely a good tool overall. Best of all, it and a few other Nikon cameras are available at good prices right now. Take a look at three with bundle options after the jump.

Lenses for Leica M Mount Don’t Need to Be Expensive. Look at These!

For more stories like this, please subscribe to The Phoblographer.

Leica M mount lenses are often scoffed at because of their prices. But folks genuinely don’t understand them. There are loads of great reasons why you’d buy an actual Leica lens. However, if you’re dipping your toes into the M mount system, consider some of these. Some of them have been rated very highly by us. There’s the 7Artisans 50mm f1.1, 35mm f2, 28mm f1.4, and others. But just keep in mind that if you care about build quality, then you’re not going to beat Leica. There are notorious build quality issues with other brands. Zeiss has some of the most perplexing ones. So too does Voigtlander. And admittedly, 7Artisans lenses and others aren’t as well built as a Leica. So if build quality and innovative image quality are paramount to you, then grab a. But otherwise, use these lenses with your M mount camera.

You’ll Be Tempted By This Awesome Canon EOS R Kit

For more stories like this, please subscribe to The Phoblographer.

The Canon EOS R is a camera I still use pretty often. Thumbing the D-Pad to choose an autofocus point isn’t all that awful. It’s lightweight, weather-sealed, and can focus just as well as the Canon EOS R5 in most situations. Where the Canon EOS R falls a bit behind is with autofocus situational profiles and animal eye AF detection. But if you’re shooting portraits, that won’t be a problem. The Canon EOS R has the same sensor as the Canon 5D Mk IV, which is still in use with lots of photojournalists. And with the 35mm f1.8 STM bundled, you’ll gain image stabilization but won’t have full weather sealing. Just remember that when you change lenses to turn the camera off. Check out the bundle over at Amazon.

The Olympus Pen F Is Really Affordable if You Buy It Used

For more stories like this, please subscribe to The Phoblographer.

The Olympus Pen F is a highly coveted camera that had a few unfortunate problems. Regardless, it’s still incredibly popular and awesome. Olympus gave this camera some of the best black and white rendering I’ve seen. They’ve told us it was been inspired by some Kodak film emulsions, but we were never clear on whether or not it was T-MAX or Tri-X. It also wasn’t weather sealed and didn’t have a joystick. But that means it’s nearly perfect for a manual focus lens. You can pair it with a Voigtlander 17.5mm f0.95 lens and thoroughly enjoy using it all day. It’s hard to find brand new because there are so many issues with components right now. But you can get it in used condition for a good price right now. If you’ve wanted one for a while, I’d recommend acting fast before second-hand market prices shoot back up.

The Panasonic S5 Can Come Bundled with this Fantastic Lens

For more stories like this, please subscribe to The Phoblographer.

The Panasonic S5 is seriously one of the best cameras you can get on the market right now. And it can come bundled with the Panasonic 16-35mm f4. This lens is small, weather resistant, fast to focus, and has great image quality. Quite honestly, it has to be one of the best zooms for the system right now. But the Panasonic S5 has a lot going for it. The body is smaller than the Panasonic GH5. It also has the highly coveted Live Composite mode, currently making it arguably the best camera for AstroPhotography. Plus it has the Cinelike color profiles that look like Kodak movie film. You can apply those to stills too. Additionally, there have been lots of autofocus revamps, it feels great in the hand, and best of all, it’s incredibly weather-sealed. So what’s not to like? Truthfully, not a whole lot. This bundle is awesome. Check it out!

This Sony a7c Bundle Is One of the Best I’ve Ever Seen in a While

For more stories like this, please subscribe to The Phoblographer.

“What?” is literally what I uttered when I saw this bundle deal together. The Sony a7c can come with the Sony 20mm f1.8 G lens. The bundle kit is pretty insane. We reviewed both the Sony a7c and the Sony 20mm f1.8 G lens. Both are highly rated. In fact, ergonomically speaking the Sony a7c is one of my favorite camera bodies in the lineup. It’s the perfect camera body to mount Leica m mount lenses. Now think about this; you’re getting a fast aperture, wide-angle lens and a super compact camera body. It’s going to be great for travel. But is also means you can bring other lenses with you like the 35mm f1.8 or the 55mm f1.8. The latter is one of Sony’s sharpest lenses, and both of those lenses are at great prices right now. Plus, they’re all very weather sealed.
