Using the Sony A7 II as a Digital Canon FD Camera

I’ve written in the past about adapting old manual focus lenses to mirrorless cameras, something that I think that most everyone should try out from time to time. With the release of Sony’s full-frame mirrorless cameras, using old manual focus lenses becomes even easier, as these lenses were designed for a 35mm frame, and so …

Waterfall Season

Spring is in the air, and the world is turning green once again.  Spring is also the time when many waterfalls tend to run at their fullest, so now is an ideal time for photographing waterfalls. I’ve taken advantage of some of the flow already, though a few weeks more will bring brighter and more …

Review: Panasonic Lumix 35-100mm f/4-5.6 OIS

This past fall, Panasonic made several announcements in advance of Photokina, but one that flew under the radar a bit was the addition of a very compact 35-100mm f/4-5.6 lens. The new 35-100mm is a slower option that sits alongside the excellent 35-100mm f/2.8 from Panasonic. This new lens, which gives the same field of …

A Mysterious Morning

Divergence - Fujifilm X-T1 with Fujinon XF 10-24mm @ 10mm, f/5.6, 18s, ISO 200

Two weeks ago, I got up rather early and went out to take a few photos before work, as I often do.  It was a very dark and somewhat foggy morning, and everything was calm.  The spring greens hadn’t quite sprouted yet, and so I went out knowing I’d be shooting for black and white.  Found …

In late 2013, Olympus released the M.Zuiko 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO lens.  It was their first foray into the ‘PRO’ line, which has now been joined by the 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO and will soon add a 7-14mm and a 300mm f/4.  I didn’t get a chance to review the 12-40mm back when it was released, but …

Review: Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II

It’s been three years since Olympus first rolled out their highly successful OM-D line of cameras with the E-M5.  That camera redefined what a mirrorless camera could be, and was the first mirrorless camera that truly made a push for the enthusiast photographer.  Since then, the exceptional E-M1 has followed as well as a lower …

Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II – A Quick Test of 40MP Mode

I just received the Olympus E-M5 Mark II in for review today, and I’ve only had a few hours to shoot so far.  However, like anyone interested in this camera, the very first thing I had to test was the 40 megapixel Hi-Res mode.  The E-M5 Mark II has a feature that shifts the sensor …
