Hey, there! I'm Adam, and I love writing for Fstoppers!I a lot of things that are going on in the photography world -- from gear and tech to fine art and odd adventures. If you ever have a question of any kind, don't hesitate to email me. I'm young, but I also have a lot of energy to research things I don't have the answer for right away -- so ask away! And if you want to see something on Fstoppers that you've seen or done yourself, go ahead and send it in. I'd love to see it!

Forget Nikon. Forget Canon. Meet the Sony a99.

Okay, I feel guilty already. I love Nikon, and Canon has their perks, too. But I really do hope both companies can take a clue from Sony. The a99 is a hell of a camera — read on…I promise you’ll be pleasantly (if oddly) surprised. [more]

Rumored Canon 6D Specs

While some of these specs don’t seem right, it’s likely that many will in fact be accurate. And on the heels of the Nikon D600 leak, this could be quite a competitor, but price might be a bit of an inhibitor, seeing as it’ll certainly be in a different class.

Cassini Gives Us Gorgeous Images of Saturn

Cassini has been around Saturn for eight years now, and the giant ringed planet’s seasons are changing for the first time since our arrival.

Could the Sony a99 Be the D800 We Really Wanted?

After having worked extensively now with the Nikon D800, I can attest that it’s a damn fine camera. Incredibly sharp at 100 ISO, nice big files that can stretch endlessly… But it’s still slow. New rumors, however, indicate that Sony’s re-entry into the full-frame market could see the introduction of the camera that we all really expected from Nikon back in January… [more]

But the SFPD says that it reflects poorly and in bad taste upon the department… [more]
