  1. 5 Reasons to Go Wider - super wide angle lenses

    11 May 2018

    A number of kit zooms start at around the 28mm mark - or “full frame equivalent” focal length, some start a bit wider, but the focus of this article is to look at some of the attractions of going out specifically with a super-wide, 24mm or wider for “normal” people…


  2. Micro Four Thirds still has its place

    12 Mar 2018

    Moving subjects in low light, perhaps from a fixed shooting position without concern over the size and weight of equipment - this is the realm of full frame. The announcement of the Sony A7 III last week has caused concern on some forums, this being a mature, sub £2000 full…


  3. Nikon D850 - swan song of DSLRs?

    08 Feb 2018

    Is the D850 the swan song of DSLR’s, or as Gordon Laing (of CameraLabs) said on Valérie Jardin’s Podcast, “a last hurrah”? Sharky James is running a competition on his excellent Petapixel Photography podcast, to win the camera of your choice, offering the Nikon D850 or Sony A7r III as…


  4. Changing camera system with minimum risk

    08 Sep 2017

    I have changed systems very few times, fortunately without much regret, but it can be a costly exercise. Despite declining camera sales there is an incredible range of equipment available today, SLRs are at the peak of their evolution and mirrorless systems are now a mature and usable system for many…


  5. Reflecting on Film Photography

    25 Aug 2017

    The Waiting - I recently purchased a couple of rolls of Ilford HP5+ film for my “well rested” Nikon FE, no real reason or thinking behind it, just something I have enjoyed every so often since moving to digital. The first roll is now off for developing, previously I would…

    21 Jun 2017

    Zeiss have today announced the newest lens in their Milvus range of manual focus lenses for Canon and Nikon mounts, the Zeiss Milvus 1.4/35. There have already been some comments on popular forums questioning the motives for purchasing this lens, but I am delighted to see Zeiss pushing the boundaries…


  7. Implications of the Sony Alpha A9

    22 Apr 2017

    I have been a user of Nikon SLRs for 25 years and feel a commitment to the system, I understand it and can use it easily and without thinking. I also have an investment in lenses, accessories and camera bodies. However because over half of my pictures are natural light…


  8. Nikon 20mm f/3.5 AI-S

    20 Apr 2017

    20mm is not a focal length I have used frequently but it’s fun to work with — 35mm is pretty normal, 24mm is definitely wide but can still be used easily in many situations, its a nice focal length for travel and landscape, 20mm gives an extreme point of view. Because I…


  9. Zeiss Milvus 35mm f/2

    07 Apr 2017

    The Zeiss Milvus 35mm f/2 ZF.2 is a very recent purchase for me but has been some time in planning. Zeiss lenses for DSLRs are manufactured in significantly smaller numbers than their equivalents from the major brands, I see them much less frequently than Canon, Nikon and Sigma who seem to be…
