    Two wheels to the vaccination

    Time for my second jab. How to get there?....the car is on SORN and with no buses serving the village, it's either train or my scooter. I opted for the latter as it is already sat outside so very little walking is required. Donning my Belstaff jacket...

    Best picture this year

    It isn't by anyone you've heard of. Nor the work of some new star in the photographic firmament. And itís not even one of mine. Itís not gracing this blog, because of lots of things Ė I donít have permission to use it, itís a very personal shotÖ But ...

    ObsolescenceÖ

    There are sometimes very difficult decisions to make about cameras. Generally, I avoid them by keeping old kit when I upgrade, but occasionally there are problemsÖ Around 2013-14, I was using a Sony Alpha 900 for much of my photography, and itís a c...

    Water, Water Everywhere.....

    It's raining. As if to confirm that water is the order of the day, tonight's ADAPS Zoom Meeting is on the subject of water. There is no doubt that water is one of those ingredients that can perk up an image, be it real water or Photoshopped water. So...

    Dead stop

    Let me introduce you to a little device you donít see a lot these days: itís called a focus infinity lock. Iíve met it on Leica lenses dating back to the Thirties, and on Fifties/Sixties Canon rangefinder lenses. Itís very much a rangefinder thing. ...

    Photography in the Rain

    Why would you pack your camera away at the first hint of a few drops of water falling from the sky? Soft light, glistening surfaces and reflections to name a few of the opportunities you'd be missing out on. Photography is an all weather pursuit. If...

    Black or Silver?

    There was at one time, when I started out in photography, chrome and chrome and chrome and those were the camera colour choices. Some SLRs also had a black option, but it was always more expensive and I could never afford it. I always aspired to a b...

    Sometimes I see the light

    Hereís one of the ideas that came from a short blog the other day. Itís about seeing the light, by which I mean recognising beautiful light, and then working out how to use it. For me, in my normal photographic mode, that means seeing when the studi...

    Ultra-wide lenses!

    It seems to have been a week or so of ultra-wide lenses, with two new reviews now published here on EPZ. First up was the Samyang AF 24mm f/1.8 FE, for full frame Sony cameras. I've always got on with ultra-wides and even in the film days had an SMC ...

    The long and the short of it?

    Bless Ďem all! Bless Ďem all! The long and the short and the tall. FormatÖ Itís what you do to your memory cards after clearing images to your hard drive. Itís the size and shape of your sensor. And itís the orientation and ratio of the sides of yo...

    If You Go Down To The Woods Today

    Finn, my 8-year-old grandson and myself were wandering around the moat, which we call the duck pond as the ducks live there, when we took a detour around all the old fallen trees. These are full of glorious fungi, a miasma of manky mushrooms. Or toad...

    9000 reasons

    Some people always want to be the first with everything. Everybody knows about the Minolta 7000, the first interchangeable lens AF camera Ė and about the EOS 650, Canonís response, a couple of years later. Without taking anything away from these hig...

    52 for 2021 Week 16

    Spoilt for choice this week, we managed to get out on 3 walks on Dartmoor so plenty of shots to be had. One of the walks was the first outing this year for my Fuji GFX 50S kit for some "serious" landscape shooting at Venford Falls on Tuesday. Venf...

    This Last Week Considered as a Downhill Motor Race

    Everybody got off to a bad start...but sanity will return and things to be done. One lens review completed and the second one would have been but delivery of the lens was delayed, so at the moment technical tests are complete, product shots done and ...
