The Panasonic G2 was my first experience with the Micro Four Thirds camera format, and it gave me a good sense of what the system is capable of. While I would be remiss to offer a final opinion on the entire format based on one camera, I can say with some confidence that despite its potential, Micro Four Thirds isn’t going to unseat conventional SLRs as the amateur photography stepping-stone any time soon.
The review of the Panasonic GF-1 is now complete. As great a camera as it is, it still personally left me wanting my DSLRs for better image quality. That’s not to say that the images from the GF-1 are horrible, but a good portion of that perhaps has to do with the very good 20mm F1.7 lens. Here are our findings.
Hey everyone, because of the recent traffic spikes we’ve been having and the new reader influx, I’d like to ask everyone to please complete this new survey so we can better tailor the content to you.
When you’re doing any shoot, whether it be photography or video, a gear list always hinges upon two things: What you want to accomplish and sometimes more importantly what your budget is. The gear list that follows constitutes what has gone into the Summer Stories Production thus far.
As we are currently seeing instant film make a resurgence and companies like the Impossible Project announce new products, it’s only reasonable that we take a look at a relic: the fabled 20×24 Polaroid film camera. 20×24 Studios in TriBeCa, NY was kind enough to offer a tour of the camera. As a studio that specializes in shooting art and ad campaigns with this giant beast of a camera, they’re often very busy.
I recently shot a chiptunes concert with the Canon 7D and 35mm F/1.4L and tonight I was invited by Canon to shoot the Postelles. As part of their, “Your Second Shot” campaign, they also provided myself and fellow staffer Will Greenwald with SD4500s as gifts. By far, this was some of the best lighting I’ve ever shot with at a concert in a long time. Though the 7D’s images blow the little point and shoots out of the water, I wasn’t properly holding the camera. Most of the shots taken with the SD4500 were with one hand and perhaps on the move as I needed to keep moving in order to get great angles of the band. Expect a review of the SD4500. Now enjoy the gallery.
If you want an elegant, durable and discrete camera bag then you may want to check out the M Classics Compact. As a bag meant to hold smaller DSLR cameras, expect something similar to the BJX bag reviewed and not the Domke F2.
I hated living off borrowed time with such a high performance, well built lens. As the review time with the Nikon 24mm f/1.4 was coming to an end, the clock seemed to ticked faster, and I tried to get concluding shots off with sick laughter. Shooting with a 24mm f/1.4 prime lens was intoxicating. So ladies and gentlemen I welcome you to the complete review of the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24mm f/1.4 G ED N Aspherical Lens. When time our officially came to a close, I shed a tear.
If you’re totally new to the world of DSLRs and interchangeable lens compacts, then you’ll perhaps be wondering what those weird specks are in your photos. Chances are that you’ve got a dirty sensor. My personal weapon of choice for dealing with this is the Visible Dust Arctic Butterfly(reviewed here) but sometimes even that can’t do the job and I’d require swabs. So how do you check for sensor dust in the first place?
It’s too bad that fashion week is over now as the Pentax Optio RS1000seems like the perfect camera for the fashion conscious consumer; at least in the above ad it does.
