In my early days as a photographer, I bought a memory card for my Nikon D70 with - for the time - a huge capacity of 1GB. I didn't really care about the card's speed back then, because I was shooting other subjects than wildlife. The price was staggering. If...
Nikon Z 1.4x and 2.0x Teleconverters Review
Today, I’ll be reviewing Nikon’s first teleconverters for the Z mirrorless system: the TC-1.4x and TC-2.0x. These two teleconverters multiply your focal length by 1.4× and 2.0× respectively, with the usual loss of light. How do the Nikon Z TCs hold up in practice? I’ll answer in this review.
Sirui Venus 35mm t/2.9 Anamorphic Lens Review
Sirui’s 35mm full-frame anamorphic lens is a very interesting piece of equipment. While anamorphic lenses were previously the domain of cinema-focused lenses, Sirui's Venus series blurs the line between cinema and still photography, in part because of the great selection of compatible mounts. Is it worth using an anamorphic on...
Olympus 300mm f/4 IS PRO Review
The Olympus 300mm f/4.0 IS PRO is a high-performance telephoto lens built for the Micro Four Thirds system. This lens impressed me in every way, from sharpness to design, and its fast f/4.0 maximum aperture is good even in low light. In this review, I'll go through my full experience...
Luminar Neo Review: A Revolution in Photo Editing?
For a while now, editing photos has been about more than just Adobe Photoshop or Lightroom. A number of other companies have popped up in recent years like mushrooms after the rain. One that you may have heard about is the company Skylum, with their Luminar Neo software. Does the...
Heipi Travel Tripod Review: An Ultra-Portable Carbon Fiber Tripod
Choosing a tripod can seem like a riddle with no correct answer. The lighter and smaller the tripod, the less stable it’ll be, seemingly defeating the point of even bringing one. I especially seem to run into this problem while traveling, when a bulky tripod just isn't feasible. Travel tripods...
Nikon Z 26mm f/2.8 Review
For this review of the Nikon Z 26mm f/2.8, I’ve tested the lens extensively both in the field and in the lab. This is one of the smallest, lightest full-frame lenses ever made, and not just by Nikon. But how does it perform?
Nikon Z 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 VR S Review
I’ve been shooting with the Nikon Z 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 VR S for just over a year, and I’ve finally completed all of the extensive lab testing necessary to publish a full review (including testing both TCs). This lens is large, heavy, and optically excellent – built to Nikon’s highest standards, with a $2700 price to match. Here’s how it measures up.
Pergear 35mm f/1.4: An Exceptionally Cheap 35mm Lens
Lenses with a fixed focal length of 35mm are among the most popular ever. It stands between wide angle and normal lenses, taking the best of both. They can provide a nice field of view, minimal distortion, and a pleasant depth of field. In this review, I'll take a look...
Pergear 14mm f/2.8 Field Test: Ultrawide and Fast, on a Budget
Pergear’s 14mm f/2.8, full-frame lens is a very interesting option for Sony, Nikon, Canon, and Leica mirrorless photographers. After all, it reaches wide and bright, yet costs under $300. But can it really deliver? I tested this budget ultra-wide in the field, and here’s what I found.
