How to Record Your Camera's EVF

Being able to record your camera's electronic viewfinder might not be the most pressing issue for a lot of photographers and videographers, however it can be quite useful. If you're filming a YouTube video or you simply want to demonstrate something behind the scenes, recording your EVF may help illustrate your point far more effectively.

Do You Have a Backup Plan?

We all know things can go wrong and sometimes they might be due to circumstances out of our control or due to a simple mistake. I'm certain we also know how important it is to be prepared for those unfortunate but inevitable situations.

How to Use Your ColorChecker Passport in Capture One

For the longest time, I've been trying to move away from using Lightroom and instead use Capture One all the time.

For many architectural photographers, tilt-shift lenses from Canon are the go-to option. These particular lenses are quite possibly the best available, and although Nikon has their variants, they just don't seem to be as good as Canon. The problem, however, is that Canon doesn't currently offer the best camera to put those lenses on with cameras like the Nikon D850 and Sony a7R III offering much better noise performance and dynamic range. In this video, I adapt Canon lenses to Fuji's medium format camera.
