    Yildiz,Thank you and the link is appreciated. It is a pity that such actions are taken. I have seen itquite often in India too. Unfortunately, it is often too late we realize the severity of theseactions. On a positive note, Siem Reap province seems to be very proactive in preserving andeven restoring these temples. They […]

    .Hi Sury;A great series on Cambodia's cultural heritage and daily life. I was reading the other day that Cambodia was losing some of its most significant limestone cliffs that house some of World's most wonderful natural caves and carved temples with the natural fauna they secured because they were being pulvarized to make concrete.

  • Digital Workflow and PP • Re: Adobe Bridge CC DAM is free to everyone February 19, 2017
    I read something today that I didn't realize. Adobe Camera Raw is included with Bridge and it can be used directly from Bridge without Photoshop. Anyone done this? Sounds interesting. Lightroom is basically a DAM + ACR integrated together for a pretty nice workflow. I have been using Lightroom for more than 5 years. I […]

Voigtländer FE 10mm f/5.6 and 15mm f/4.5 III

I got to try out the first new Voigtländer Sony FE mount lenses with electronic aperture setting and manual focus control with a quick overnight test during the UK Photography Show at the Birmingham National Exhibition Centre, on March 19th 2016. The pre-production 10mm f/5.6 Hyper-Wide-Heliar and 15mm f/4.5 Super-Wide-Heliar are two of a . . . → Read More: Voigtländer FE 10mm f/5.6 and 15mm f/4.5 III

Sony A7R II review by David Kilpatrick

Sony’s A7R II has a unique position in the mirrorless ILC world, creating the largest image files at over 42 megapixels from an in-body five axis stabilised sensor with exceptional performance given by backside illuminated CMOS.

My reviews in print of the Sony A7R II have now appeared, in the British Journal of Photography, . . . → Read More: Sony A7R II review by David Kilpatrick

Sony’s Zeiss 24mm f/2 Distagon ZA SSM T* reviewed

The Sony Zeiss 24mm f/2 SSM Distagon ZA T* is probably the best, or equal to the best, in its class. It may perhaps be the best ever 84° angle fast lens ever made for the general SLR system market, and I would happy to pitch it against any of the current equivalent offerings for . . . → Read More: Sony’s Zeiss 24mm f/2 Distagon ZA SSM T* reviewed

Sony Alpha 77 review – tomorrow today

It must be two years ago, at least, that an Australian sports photographer confided he had seen a Sony prototype which would blow away everything – an Alpha which could shoot at incredible frame rates (he mentioned 15fps) and follow focus. It may have been something unlike the Alpha 77, which follows focus 12fps . . . → Read More: Sony Alpha 77 review – tomorrow today

The Alpha 580 – a three-way view

Once I had a quarterplate hand-and-stand camera, vintage 1920s. Attached to the front standard was a small reflex viewfinder, giving a miniature composition you could use at waist or chest level. On the same standard was a folding wire frame, with a companion eye-sighting window flipping up from the side of the body. This gave . . . → Read More: The Alpha 580 – a three-way view
