I’ve enjoyed reading about Chris’s experience with renting and using Nikon’s new camera, the Df – a camera intended to be ‘retro’, rather than cutting edge. Overall, Chris really liked the camera, but felt that, for him, it was overpriced. It fact, that was his only issue with the camera. Price/value is a very personal thing. I think that it has to do with your upbringing, how much disposable income you have, and possibly, return on investment needed, and possibly…

I don’t do many reviews, and I most certainly wouldn’t even call this a review, but merely a glance at how I use this camera, as well as the OM-D, E-M5. I have both. For all intents and purposes, they are ‘nearly’ the same camera, based on what they can do. The big differences are (in my opinion based on what is important to me): 1. Ergonomics – how it feels in my hand. 2. Control placement. 3. Weather sealing…

I was walking along in the park and, to my left, I heard a noise, a rustling. That was nothing unusual as there are so many squirrels scampering about on any given day, not really trying to be quiet at all, or the occasional dear crashing through the woods in distance. I took a glance, heard the noise, but didn’t see anything. I stopped. I still didn’t see anything until I saw some leaves move, like they were tossed up…

The workday was finished. It was a good day, not stressful at all. The sun was heading towards the horizon and the clouds were moving in. I thought that I’d make a quick trip to the lake. When I arrived, there was only one other car in this particular parking lot. Inside of that car was a curious little poodle. She was quiet, just watching me. I left my car, walked to the lake. The clouds had completely covered the…

I’ve been reading a number of blog posts about social media and how let down some photographers feel about these outlets. Sources, like flikr, 500px, Google+, and Facebook, to name a few. It’s been an interesting read. I think that I started along this path with Chris’s fine set of blog posts, staring with Social Media for Photographers. It was very interesting to read his points of view. A number of photographers indicated that they would like to have critical…

I think that Saturday mornings are a good time to ponder before gearing up and doing what you need to do for the day. On this particular Saturday morning, my thoughts turned to electronic view finders, or EVFs. I’ve had a couple of experiences with them. One, I wrote about a little more than 2 years ago, about my first experience, the Minolta DiMage A1. I didn’t like the EVF experience. I wanted glass. It was slow to refresh, lots…
