  • Posted on: Morally Toxic Camera Bags Are Convention-Defying Yet Perfectly Practical Accessories For Photographer

    I've had a bad day so this will sound like I'm getting my knickers in a twist over nothing, but there is enough "moral toxicity" around in society without naming a "trendy" bag range after it imho. I get the rationale given above for the name, but we interpret words in combination and not just in isolation. E.g. ass wipe.

  • Posted on: XP-Pen Artist 24 Pro Review

    I've been very tempted of late to give one of the XP-Pen drawing tablets a go - albeit this one is likely too big for me (16" would be preferable). However, as I've never really gotten on too well with standard drawing tablets I don't want to waste my money and I'd prefer to have a go with one first. The rub here is where? I had hoped I could do this at Focus, but the plans are for a virtual exhibition next year. I'd therefore be keen to learn of folks experience with them. One review suggested drawing tablets were a mixed blessing for photo re-touching as it can be difficult to precisely adjust some elements (e.g. dodge/burn) as a consequence of the pen nib hiding what is been adjusted (this makes no sense to me).

    I'm not 100% sure what lens was used for the ISO tests, but there is a marked drop off in sharpness in the corners that is notable across the ISO images which makes some aspects of the comparison difficult IMHO.

  • Posted on: Canon RF 85mm, 100-500mm, 600mm, 800mm Lenses Announced

    f11 is an interesting choice for the super teles. With the IS functions with the new bodies being reported 8stops then this makes some sense when holding the camera steady, and it certainly brings massive weight savings, but Im not convinced it will be fast enough in the field for many nature photographers. IS and lens weight help the user keeps the camera steady, but does nothing to stop movement in the subject. Often I find I have to push up the ISO on my system when using a faster tele lens in order to achieve the shutter speed I need to get a sharp image due to object movement. Logically, this means that Id need to push the ISO even higher with these new lenses and that would demand ISO performance far above what I already have with my 5D MkIV. Ill be interested in reviews of the new kit - especially from real world reviewers. The weight saving here could be a real boon - especially when travelling and on safari. Compared to my existing lens set up for a 600mm equ. I would save nearly 2.5kilo. That would be great, but not if it comes at the price of missing opportunities due to subject movement or poor noise control.

    Fab, but really 6.5K? It seems professional spec camera prices are increasing at an exponentially greater rate than inflation would predict. I suppose if you are a pro its an investment that may be worthwhile, but as an amateur aspiring to take images of a professional standard prices like these are just simply too high to be justifiable

  • Posted on: 10 Ways To Instantly Improve Photo Backgrounds

    The best lesson I have learned regarding this issue in wildlife photography is: the distance between the object and the background is as important than the aperture used. The greater the distance between the object and their background the better - allowing lovely bokeh without having to use massive apertures.

  • Posted on: Fujifilm GFX100 Sample Photos

    Astonishing resolution as could be expected. Likely to be totally unforgiving in regard to technique. E.g. f11 seems here to have given insufficient depth of field for where the point of focus has been set - looking at the top of the coloured pencils there is a blurring and lack of detail (I doubt this is resolution related).

  • Posted on: Panasonic Lumix FT7 Review

    I suspect, like with watches, the depth guide relates to pressure. Eg a watch waterproof to 10bar has a waterproof rating of 100m (if I recall correctly). My point is that this depth is not recommended. Any movement under water acts to exponentially increase the pressure on the object being moved. Consequently, Id be surprised if the camera was ever intended for anything other than snorkelling.

    Budget in relation to their other products perhaps. I've always ruled out these guys on price - that and I'm not convinced about the stability of a 4 section tripod. I'm sure it's all very nice, but still that's a lot of cash for something I'd use and abuse. I'll stick to buying good second hand tripods for about 50 and then using them to destruction... sea water pretty much destroys all it touches.

    I've just spent a few minutes revisiting some of the images in your portfolio. I forget how diverse the images are - a fabulous collection. You use a strong sense of narrative in many of the images - something I admire. My favourites are the urban dance series - the narrative leaves the viewer to question what they are seeing. Keep up the good work!
