Review: Sigma 100-400mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM (Canon EF Mount) + MC-11

I don’t generally do reviews of Canon EF lenses, as I’ve been shooting mirrorless exclusively for the past 7 years.  However, with the availability of EF to E-mount adapters, and the Sony system still being a little thin in some areas, there are Canon mount lenses that may potentially be great alternatives for use on …

Review: Sony A7 III

The Sony A7 full-frame mirrorless system has now been around for 4.5 years, and while the original A7 was replaced after just a year on the shelf, the A7 II has had much greater staying power. That model was announced in November of 2014, and has enjoyed a nice stay as the ‘basic model’ in …

My Favorite Photos of 2017

Every year, I like to take a look back at the year of shooting and select my favorite photos of the year. 2017 was definitely a down year for me as far as volume of output is concerned, as I had very little time to shoot this year (and even less time to write).  However, …

Early Fall in Ohio

Every fall I like to go do some landscape shooting around Ohio.  We don’t have big mountains, or many sweeping vistas, or an ocean shore.  There’s Lake Erie, but the sun doesn’t rise or set over it.  However, one thing we do have in Ohio is waterfalls and naturally carved gorges, and these make for …

Review: Sony A9

I’m finally getting around to writing my review of the Sony A9.  This is going to be a little different from my normal reviews, and is not going to be quite as in-depth as I typically like, as I didn’t get to shoot with it quite as extensively as I often get to with cameras.  …
