The joy of vintage!

celtxianRecently I have been rediscovering vintage lenses form the pre-digital 'golden age' of photography (as some would see it!). By this I mean attaching old lenses to my shiny new Sony a6000 digital camera body with the use of adapters. Granted this means manual focussing but with the aid of focus peaki...

John_MurielWhat is the Normal/standard Lens for digital dx format camera? portrait lens length, wide angle and a telephoto lens? I need to find the standard lenses for my nikon d7000 dx format for a dof/lens exercise I would greatly appreciate it

The Tangerine Test

conradAs I wrote recently, I've been given an old analogue Canon EOS Rebel SLR. It came with a cheap standard zoom lens, a 35-80mm. I also told you that I have a new acquaintance, someone who fiddles with lenses. Handy little man. He fixed my 50mm 1.8 Mk I lens, which I was very happy about. But he ...

Happy Reunion

conradFor those who have been following my blog posts (if there are any... :P), it won't be news that my 50mm 1.8 lens was recently found to be completely stuck, not wanting to focus at all, and it seemed like I had to write it off. But then someone in the forum thread on here suggested taking the lens...

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...

conradIt's been one of those years in which things had to be replaced. Do you know how that works? One thing after another will die on you, be lost forever, or become so outdated that you'll have to replace it. The car went to my ex, my satnav gave up the ghost, my Olympus pocket digicam fell and brok...

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...

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 ...

95 - 365

bfgstewAnother project! To improve my macro photography I have been trawling the net for a macro rail and came across a brilliant, cheap solution. Further details to follow but I am excited about this, to say the least!!!!! But what came out of the initial search for the necessary equipment I came acros...

One Lens Travel Photography

conradI like to travel light. Because it's easier not to travel with bulky luggage. And because it's easier on my bad back. And because it's sometimes cheaper as well. For the Skye Meet, I tried. I really tried. But I did end up with two big bags anyway. Just the tripod alone took up so much space. And...

Photo365 - 279 - Self Portrait

PeteAnother self portrait, this time using the iPhone with a fisheye lens attached. It's really cool lens and I've had a lot of fun with it so far.

Creative Camera

cathalDespite believing that photography is all about the pictures we create rather than the tools we use, there is no escaping the fact that many photographers enjoy a relationship with their tools which is very different to that which a plumber or car mechanic enjoys with theirs. Those of you who hav...

cathalHave you ever used a 50mm lens? Have you ever used 35mm film? I guess the answer may depend on when you were bitten by the photography bug. Once, the almost prescribed method of starting photography was with a 35mm camera fitted with a 50mm lens. Itís a road I walked down, and 28 years later, I s...
