Back on epz

hcapewellSo i actually joined this site way back when i brought my Canon 350D in 2005 and for one reason or another i strayed from the path of righteousness so to speak. However you will be glad to know that my photography has improved some what. I have changed my camera three times since buying my 350D ...

Goodbye Canon 3XL

conradSome of you may be scratching their heads now, trying to think of a Canon model by the name of 3XL, but let me spare you the trouble and explain that 3XL doesn't refer to a camera, lens or photographic accessory at all - unless you count a T-shirt with the name of a camera manufacturer on it as a ph...

blastedkaneSo blog point 2. I am hoping that if I can commit making the time for this then I can also find the time to complete a project 52.. time will tell I suppose... This week I have been continuing with the tulips theme that I started last week, however after taking the live tulips last week I have b...

Size Matters

conradWell, to some it does. Of course, I can think of plenty people who don't think size matters, I can think of plenty of situations in which bigger isn't better. But sometimes you just can't get around it - size can impress. And at the Royal Armouries in Portsmouth they certainly do think bigger is ...

The End of an Era

conradToday it was a final goodbye to my Canon kit, and a hello to my new small and lightweight Olympus kit: an OM-D E-M5 with a 12-50 lens. Talking to the dealer, I reminisced about my early photographic beginnings. It all started with my father feeling that if I was to take photographs, that was ...

conradSo, the decision's been made. I'm selling my Canon kit and going for something smaller and lighter. (See the forum thread here.) I've been reluctant to make the decision, because I felt very much attached to my trusty Canon 20D and the excellent lenses I'd collected, but I just don't want to walk...

conradThere are several photographers on EPZ who take really good pictures of cars, and I don't count myself among them - I wish I could, but I've never taken shots as good as they take them. But that doesn't mean that I can't enjoy giving it a go. And I've had a Ford Puma photo sitting on my hard d...

tonyguitarAm in the market for a lens upgrade also and some of the older photogs here in Canada have suggested the Canon 400 4-5.6 usm as very razor sharp lens. My humble reasoning is that extra crisp glass allows closer cropping so the newer Canon 70 - 300 f4 will be my next lens. Surprisingly many have ...

50mm Update

conradThe other day I wrote that my 50mm 1.8 Mk I lens had got stuck: both auto focus and manual focus didn't work anymore. Well, there's good news to report! I found someone who is handy with lenses (takes them apart, converts his own lenses for macro use, etc. - quite a handy chap, apparently), and I...

Rebel 2000

conradA kind relative gave me an old analogue SLR, a Canon EOS Rebel 2000. I don't know if I'll be using much film, I like the economic advantage of having a DSLR too much, but maybe I can think of nice, nostalgic techniques to try out (any suggestions welcome, by the way). And ... I have plans wit...

EOS Reflections

conradA relative gave me an old analogue Canon EOS SLR. I took it out of the bag and put it on my dining room table, and I noticed a rather nice reflection of the strap on the table surface.

conradLast night my daughter had a stall at a Christmas fair, and I thought I'd go and have a look, and decided to take my camera. Since I don't like the harshness of flash light very much, I thought it would be a good idea to take my fastest lens, a 50mm 1.8 Mk I. I don't use it very often, but I do ...

Shooting From The Hip

conradYears ago, I bought an infrared filter for one of my interchangeable lenses, and started to use it on my 20D. I thought the whole process was quite cumbersome, to be honest. I do often use a tripod and long shutter times for landscape shots, but have to admit to being an impatient person and preferr...

PaintmanFollowing on from my previous blog I thought I'd put side by side comparisons of the different set ups that produced similar sizes of the subject in the photograph. This shows the difference in working distance that can be achieved which can be useful when photographing nervous insects or other smal...

PaintmanThis is a quick test to see if a Canon 70-200mm f4 L IS lens with a closest focus of approximately 1200mm is a good lens for butterfly and close-up photography. The idea was to see how close the focus was using combinations of extension tubes and a 1.4x Teleconverter and to see if there was a qu...
