Pelican Case Alternative

I bought this Pelican style case for my Pentax 6×7. I never thought I’d ever want to use a case like this for a camera. But when I thought about traveling with my 6×7 the idea of it banging around in the back of a car with a bunch of other suitcases in just a …

Minolta 50mm 1.2 vs Pentax 55mm 1.8

I have been shooting with my Minolta 50mm f/1.2 for a long time now. I have always known the short comings of the lens and had accepted the trade offs (like lack of sharpness wide open) for the f/1.2 speed. I have also had my Pentax 55mm f/1.8 for a long time, but haven’t shot …

Back To Fujifilm

I decided life would be better with a little Fujifilm back in my life. I picked up this Fujifilm X-T2 for a smoke’n deal from Vistek (a Canadian camera store) and I am so happy I did. If you have been a long time reader of this blog you know I have some experience with …

Big Zoom (Sigma 50-500mm)

Let me start off by saying this is not a full in-depth review of the Sigma 50-500mm f/4.5 -6.3 APO DG OS HSM zoom, but rather a quick look. The other night I was out shooting some skyline shots from a good distance from downtown and I thought this might be a good opportunity to …

Canon 50mm 1.8 vs 1.2

This photo was shot with Canon 5D mark ii & Canon 24-85mm @85mm & f/4.5 I did a little comparison between 2 of my favourite lenses, the Canon 50mm 1.8 mark i & the 50L. With a price differnce of at least $1500, the case one can make to buy the 50L can only be …
