Leica M-Monochrom Preview

For those of you that like Leica, and like B&W photography, Leica has just released a perfect solution for you. A monochrom Leica M9 for $8000.00 USD. Leica says they have taken out the color filter array so the images should be sharper because the light doesn’t need to go into individual RGB channels. It has an ISO of  300-10,000 and pull option of ISO 160 to maximize dynamic range. They also announced a 50mm Summicron APO lens for $7200.00 all that for a aspherical lens that will hopefully get rid of chromatic aberrations. We’ll see if it really performs […]

Top 5 Point and Shoot Cameras for Mom under $100

Top 5 Point and Shoot Cameras for Mom under $100 If you are the default camera guy/gal in your family like I am, you may get this question a lot. “What camera should I get? I don’t have a lot of money though!”  I actually love this question, because for my friends and family, I like to find what camera is going to suit their needs the best. Of course when they come back to me and say, “Hey, that camera you recommended was great!” I get the “warm and fuzzie’s” all over, but I take it seriously and use […]

Olympus OM-D E-M5 Review: Gold Award

This Olympus OM-D E-M5 has been much anticipated by many photo enthusiasts. The rumors sites have been buzzing about this camera and the anticipation of the Image Quality and retro handling that it may provide. With the OM markings this camera is not to be mistaken for the “old school” Olympus OM camera systems but more of a homage to the very popular enthusiast camera of the 70’s to 90’s. The new OM-D E-M5 will not have the same OM lens mount but will instead have a miro four thirds mount. It boasts the worlds fastest contrast type autofocus system […]

Fun with Zeiss 18mm F4 ZM on Sony NEX-7

Fun with the Zeiss 18mm F4 on a Sony NEX-7 In my review of the Sony 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 vs. Zeiss 18mm F4, I mentioned that this camera and lens combination made me want to keep shooting and make interesting images with it. So I decided I show you how much fun I’ve been having. I don’t want to give the lens back at this point and although the cost is high, It’s a really fun lens to play around with. All the images were shot hand-held at night. Most used aperture was F4.0. Focusing I love how with this lens […]

Fuji X-Pro1: Portraits

Portraits with the Fuji X-Pro1 I’ve been shooting with the Fuji X-Pro1 now for a couple of weeks and I wanted to give my impressions on the camera, the handling, and how it performs when shooting portraits. I used the Fuji X-Pro1 with the Fujinon XF 35mm F1.4 R Lens. My goals were to show how easy it was to get the camera, attach a lens, and with minimal setup, start shooting. With this in mind, not special film simulations were used. Camera setting were all in default mode, ISO set to Auto, And aperture set to Auto. I shot these […]
