    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…

    22 Feb 2018

    Following a couple of forum threads on DPReview, I thought I would add a short article on my RAW workflow, with details on how I post process an image. I have learnt a lot from others and think it’s important to share skills not keep secrets.  Firstly a note on…

  9. Nikon 20mm f/3.5 AI-S

    20 Apr 2017
