Does the Voigtlander 15mm F4.5 make a good quality “street photography” lens for the Sony NEX-7? That question has been bouncing around in my head f0r a while since I got the Sony NEX-7.

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 […]

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 […]

Sony NEX-7 w/ Sony 50mm F1.8 OSS - Close Up Review

Sony NEX-7 w/ Sony 50mm F1.8 OSS – Close Up Review I had the opportunity you test the Sony 50mm F1.8 OSS lens on the Sony NEX-7. This Sony 50mm F1.8 OSS lens is about 75mm in the 35mm equivalent on the Sony NEX-7 with the 1.5 crop factor.  That makes this lens a medium telephoto, great for portraits, Close Ups, medium product shots, and some sports, among other subjects. For this phase of the review I wanted to focus on Close Ups. I wanted to use real world images and not take pictures of brick walls and test charts. I wanted […]
