  1. Why 50mm and a Leica M3?

    2021-02-01 12:36:12 UTC

    … and why not 35mm on an M2, given that’s my preferred focal length? I was using film long before the digital age and continue to use it occasionally alongside digital, it’s not a novelty. Most of the time I feel digital is “better” at everything measurable; speed, resolution, cost.…

  2. Thoughts on the Fujifilm X100V

    2020-10-23 20:44:00 UTC

    I have now had a couple of months with the Fujifilm X100V. It is an excellent camera, a good compromise of features that fits a specific purpose for me, for every day carry This is my outpouring of opinions, hopefully helpful for readers but as always, also for me to

  3. Nikon Z 24mm f/1.8 S - Why no love for primes?

    2020-08-21 18:24:34 UTC

    Across systems I see universal preference for zoom lenses, whether it is the excellent Olympus 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO, Olympus 12-100mm f/4 PRO, Nikon Z 24-70mm f/4 S or the newer and clearly excellent Nikon Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S. But there is very little discussion of primes today, they seem much…

  4. Backpack or Shoulder Bag

    2020-07-18 20:02:00 UTC

    My style of street photography has been challenging in the current situation, so I have been spending a bit of time photographing the environment around me, rather than the people I have chosen camera bags around what works walking in urban areas with a small amount of equipment, normally just…

  5. Sensor Cleaning and dust on the Nikon Z 6

    2020-03-05 10:36:25 UTC

    I have quickly learnt that sensor dust on the Nikon Z 6 is going to be more of an issue than on previous cameras It does make sense of course, a large full-frame sensor, exposed and very close to the lens opening, however it is still a frustration. I suspect…

  6. Choosing Capture One or Adobe Lightroom

    2019-12-05 00:13:55 UTC

    Post processing software has been on my mind this week, yesterday Capture One 20 was released and I have just finished listening to Derrick Story’s podcast, which I highly recommend, in which Derrick discusses photo editing applications. He took a poll of enthusiasts and professionals, in which Adobe’s Lightroom legacy…

  7. Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II versus Nikon Z6 - Part II

    2019-10-20 10:22:00 UTC

    I wanted to write this follow up to my brief side-by-side look at these two cameras as quickly as possible after my purchase of the Nikon Z6. Judging by the web traffic to the first article it is a choice that many are considering. I don’t love photography equipment, I…

  8. Leica M3 - The best film rangefinder for a 50mm lens

    2019-09-24 15:57:32 UTC

    By way of history, I have had a few Leica cameras over the last 20 years, all have been film with the exception of my Leica X typ113. My first Leica was a IIIc, purchased mostly out of curiosity, which I used for a little while with a similarly aged…

  9. Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 17mm 1:1.2 PRO Review

    2019-04-11 20:41:31 UTC

    Why have I finally dropped my resistance and chosen to buy this lens I have always favoured the 35mm focal length in film and “full frame” digital - it’s not the first time I have compromised on weight, size, price, even functionality, to get the best I can possibly squeeze…

  10. Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II versus Nikon Z6

    2019-02-28 23:35:00 UTC

    This is the first of a two part article, part 2 which goes into further depth is here Having spent more time with Nikon cameras than any other brand, I would be lying if I said I wasn’t tempted by the new Z system and for my needs, specifically the…

  11. BlackRapid and OpTech sling and strap systems compared

    2018-05-22 22:05:06 UTC

    BlackRapid and OpTech make a wide range of camera straps, slings and solutions for all manner of photographic equipment. For many years I used simple cloth straps on rangefinder cameras and an OpTech Pro strap for SLRs Now that I have moved to lighter micro four thirds Olympus cameras for…
