I have to say, this is probably one of the more extreme camera mods I’ve seen in recent times. Sure, there were some doozies back in the days of film when everything was mechanical. But now? With all the intricacies of digital chips and circuits? Not so much beyond “How to add a microphone jack” […]

Tripods have been here for ages. Probably way before cameras existed. Heck, they were used to cook animals over an open fire. And weight matters. The load capacity on a tripod is one of the first features a tripod lists (along with self-weight and max height). But, if you can’t find a tripod that is sturdy […]

In my post on essential gadgets for travel photography, I mentioned that I always pack five specific lens filters with me. So in this post I thought I would elaborate on what I consider to be my five essential photography filters – in no particular order… #1 Polarizing Filter I pretty much shoot with a […]

I’m excited about this. But not because I’m going to use it. I use Android and I don’t have an ipad. But I am a big fan of Affinity Photo. I use that on both my Mac and Windows laptops. I think it’s great to see that Affinity is going mobile, and working to provide features people want, and eventually maybe it will also be available for my Samsung tablet. Here is a snippet from DIY Photography, and a link to their article.
It’s been a long time coming, but Affinity Photo has finally been released for the iPad. Mac users have had Affinity Photo for a good while now, and Windows users finally got their hands on it last year. And Affinity Photo for iPad uses the exact same backend as the desktop versions. But fully optimised […]

Samyang has revealed their third autofocus lens. The so-called ‘tiny but mighty’ 35mm f/2.8 FE was announced last night, and today it’s instilling at least a bit of fear into Zeiss with its ultra-portable size and ultra-affordable price tag.
As the “FE” suggests, the 35mm f/2.8 FE was designed for Sony full-frame mirrorless cameras, joining the AF 14mm F2.8 FE and AF 50mm F1.4 FE lenses to bring Samyang’s autofocus lineup to three lenses. What’s more, the 35mm and 50mm lenses are both significantly more affordable than their Sony/Zeiss counterparts, and Sony doesn’t even make a 14mm f/2.8 FE.

The development of curved image sensors may be the biggest advance in camera technology in decades, allowing for simpler, flatter lenses with larger apertures as well as dramatically better image quality. Canon, Nikon, and Sony are working on the technology, and now Microsoft Research has developed a sensor with three times more curvature than previously achieved.
Back in 2014, it was rumoured that Sony’s successor to the RX1 would contain a spherical sensor. While things went quiet on that front, both Nikon and Canon have filed patents for their own curved sensors, though we have yet to see one used in a consumer camera other than Sony’s odd perfume bottle-themed KW1.
