    Arabian.A900, 70-200mm G, F2.8, 1/250, ISO 2000Snow - The overhead rig which is supposed to slowly release the snow malfunctioned and dropped all of the snow in one big dump.

  • Give it Your Best Shot • A Dance Photographer's Archive November 27, 2021
    Hi All,Work has been overwhelming for the past few months and I haven't had much time for photography. So for now, I thought I'd share some shots from my dance archives. Some of them might be a decade old or older. Since it's Nutcracker season I'll start with those. Plus, it's every dance company's biggest […]

    I have had the Olympus E-M1 II and Olympus 12-200mm f3.5-6.3 for 3 weeks or so and I like them a lot. I started a thread about them along with some sample, full-size photos.

  • Alpha A-mount System • The LAEA4 Might be "discontinued" November 17, 2021
    I had a look on Amazon sites, it's mostly showing available as "used" only.This includes many of the European ones and other camera retailers.If this is true, it might be another heavy blow for some users.Reason, for screw drive lenses - the LAEA4 works on most of the cameras out there including the A7/II/III, and […]

GGS Toughened Glass LCD Protectors for Alpha

Back in that first golden summer – well, it was late autumn going on winter, just the time to acquire a new DSLR when the days were short and the light awful – the Konica Minolta Dynax 7D arrived with a plastic screen protector in the box.

One of the problems with the Alpha 350/300 is that the Live View is linked to the settings when you use Manual exposure. It provides a form of metering, a relatively accurate preview of under or over exposure. This makes it impossible to use Manual with studio flash (AC mains strobe) setups. Currently, there is . . . → Read More: Alpha Live View in the studio – solved!

Sony Alpha 350 – a Creative Review

The introduction of a £399 (street price, RRP £449) DSLR with 14.2 megapixels – with or without a useful type of Live View – should have been applauded by reviewers. It’s the single most important point about the camera. No other DSLR approaches this image size and resolution at such a low price.
