Most photographers are familiar with using a neutral density filter to create dreamy, long exposure photographs, but should you use a neutral density filter when shooting time-lapses too? In today's video, I explore why using a 10-stop ND filter might be perfect for more than just still photography.
Over the years, I’ve acquired an interesting array of “tools” that I use for setting up and maintaining my underwater camera housing. I wish I had known earlier about some of the items I travel with, as they have made my life quite a bit easier. Most of what I carry with me has been a result of trial and error, and I’d like to pass along that information to any budding underwater photographers out there.
Long telephoto glass can quickly get very expensive, but luckily, in the past few years, we've seen an influx of 150-600mm lenses at affordable prices. Today only, you can get a great deal on the Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary Lens in Nikon F or Canon EF mounts.
Although the Sony a9 takes direct aim at the flagship bodies of both Canon and Nikon, one of the most prominent issues has been the lack of wide-aperture super-telephoto lenses. The Sony FE 400mm f/2.8 GM OSS directly addresses that need, and this great video offers a first look at it.
With all the excitement in recent weeks about the release of the new Nikon mirrorless camera and its homage to the history of a great camera company, I thought I would take a moment to look back at the evolution of the Fujifilm X100 series into its current form and talk about why it still isn’t truly a mature camera.
All I’ll say, is that I owned the original a7 and it kinda sucked. Is Nikon going to get it right the “first” time? Or will next week's supposed announcement of the Z-series cameras begin a long cycle of trying to one up themselves while trying to keep up with the major mirrorless players?
When it comes to portrait lenses, the Nikon 105mm f/1.4 is possibly one of the best choices. At the time of its release, it was the first of its kind and was met with much praise. Since then, however, Sigma released their own version of this lens and many, including myself, wanted to know which lens is actually better.
