Mini-Review: Canon Powershot G7 X Mark II

Today I’m taking a quick look at a high-end compact camera. I recently went on vacation with my family to Orlando, Florida, to spend some time taking in the parks at Disney World and Universal Studios. Since this was a family vacation, and not a photographic journey, I didn’t want to carry anything even remotely …

Review: Voigtländer 35mm f/1.4 Nokton Classic (E-Mount)

As modern lenses become sharper, with fewer lens aberrations, one byproduct has been the explosion of lens size.  These highly corrected optics require more and more elements, made with special glass types and molding processes.  This is highly evident in the extremely large and heavy Sony/Zeiss FE 35mm f/1.4 and other recent full-frame f/1.4 wide …

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.  …

Review: Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM

It’s been a long, long break between articles, as I’ve been absolutely swamped at my day job, finding little time to shoot and even less time to write.  I have a backlog of thoughts and images to go through, and today I’m taking a look at Sony’s professional grade telezoom, the Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 …

Shooting Golf with the Sony A9

So, I had a chance to test out the new Sony A9 over the past week, and I’ll have a full review soon.  However, I wanted to share my experiences shooting with this new camera in an area where it may find a very strong following: Golf.  I took the camera, along with the 70-200mm …

Review: Sony FE 85mm f/1.8

The Sony full-frame E-Mount lens lineup is beginning to get crowded at the 85mm focal length, but Sony’s latest entry, the FE 85mm f/1.8, is the first to come in at a relatively affordable price: $598.  The lens joins the existing Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 ($1199), the Zeiss Loxia 85mm f/2.4 ($1399) and the Sony …
