  • Retro digital camera - the Pentax MX-1

    If you've seen / read any of my previous blogs on here, you may have noticed I like old cameras, including old digital cameras, and retro cameras and lenses. The Pentax MX-1 is a new-ish "serious" compact camera, and features brass top and bottom pla...

  • 50mm f/1.4 Olympus Lens

    The Olympus OM G.Zuiko lenses are quite compact (like this 50mm f/1.4) and fit pretty well on Olympus OM-D cameras like the E-M5 :) Bokeh is nice, and the lens can be very sharp when stopped down: You can also get some interesting effects...

  • Gone retro again... Sony Cyber-shot R1

    The announcement of the new Sony Cybershot RX10* this week piqued my interest in the Sony Cybershot R1 again... and I went and bought one from that auction site, it arrived promptly and works very well, for a 2005 digital camera. For those that d...

  • Fujifilm X10 - Graffiti, Sheffield

    There's some seriously impressive street art in Sheffield, and I just happened to drive down a street and spot this, so I thought I'd got for a little explore. I had the Fujifilm X10 with me at the time, and I'm impressed by the colours captured ...

  • Some more from Scotland

    Straight from the camera - the rather awesome Nikon D7100 - I liked the shadows on this one, but it's a little "cooler" in colour than I remember. And these were pretty cool - I've no idea what they are, the look like fungus / mushroom, but we...

  • RAW vs JPEG

    Took the Olympus E-1 out today, with the Industar 50/2 (50mm, f/3.5) lens with me today, I chose that lens because it made the camera fit neatly into a smaller bag. I also took another old m42 lens with me, but didn't use it in the end. The light was...

  • Experimentations in Infrared Photography

    I recently picked up an Infrared converted Canon Powershot G5 - it's a bit tempramental - but for 10 I'm not complaining. I've been using some guides on the internet, but there seems to be no "right" way of converting the infrared photos (and ab...

  • Old lens OM-D macro...

    Recently I've been trying some of my old Olympus OM and M42 lenses on my Olympus OM-D E-M5 with adapter(s), and a combination of Micro Four Thirds to OM, and OM to M42 adapter has resulted in a slight extension tube effect, giving me some extra m...

  • Vignette Correction

    There's probably a quicker way to do this, but in Corel Paint Shop Pro X4, there's a vignette filter that lets you add vignette, either dark or light, so it can be used to correct signs of vignetting in photos. I used it to alter this image: to try a...

  • I'm not sure about this picture...

    It took quite a lot of Photoshop to turn it into this. But the subject was quite unique so I felt I had to try something with it.
