Leica on a Budget: Part 1

So basically he wants a Leica M9 on a budget. I’ve been wondering what the answer to this question is for a long time also, so I decided to do some tests. This will be a multi part review that will test the two latest contenders the Sony NEX-7 and the Fuji X-Pro1 with various M mount lenses and compare […]

Sony NEX-7 w/ Voigtlander 15mm F4.5 Asph

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.

In this review of the Voigtlander 15mm F4.5 Aspherical Super-Wide Heliar for the Sony NEX-7, I […]

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?

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 […]

Our friends at sonyalpharumors.com posted a review of the NEX pro hot shoe adapter. I’m very confused as to why Sony has to use a proprietary hot shoe mount for their cameras. They’ve always done this on many of their product and early digital camera’s like using memory stick instead of compact flash. It annoys me to no end. Sony why can’t we just have a standard hot shoe?? I understand trying to be different and to sell more products, but do you really make that much money on flashes?? Don’t think so, luckily the Sony NEX-7 is a killer […]
