Lighting — for photography, B-roll, or your home studio — doesn’t have to cost the earth. There are TONS of options out there to suit pretty much any budget. If you’re just starting out you don’t need to drop hundreds of pounds. Similarly, if you’re ready for an upgrade, I’ve got your back. Here are my top picks, and their pros and cons.Read More
The 7Artisans 7.5mm f2.8 fisheye lens is such a gem. I can’t believe the price of it compared to the results it can give you. I’ve been using it steadily for over 3 months now, for everything from astrophotography to every day walk-about photography. Here are my thoughts, and loads of photo examples for you to take a look at.Read More
The Lumix G7 in many ways was a revelation when it was first released. It was one of the most affordable ways to get 4k, and it all came in a brilliantly thought-out small camera body too.
But it was released in (hold onto your hats!) 2015, which seems like an age in Photography Land.
So is it still worth a consideration in 2015? Well, I still have one. I still use my G7 — both professionally and personally — and I blummin’ love it. But of course, like any camera, it is far from perfect. So let’s dive in!Read More
As a professional photographer/videographer, Youtuber, and creator in general, I’ve tried a LOT of software and subscriptions over the years. These are the ones that I use all the time, and the ones I believe have helped me considerably. This list is quite broad, including time-management, social media aids, and ways to deliver products to your clients. But hopefully there will be something for everyone here. Check them out!Read More
Flexible LED panel lights are all the rage, aren’t they? I always thought they looked a bit gimick-y… until I owned one myself. Now I’m a convert.
The truth is there are so many benefits of having a light of this design. I’m going to review the Soonwell FB-21 — which is awesome, by the way — but a lot of these benefits can be seen on most flat LED panel lights.Read More
Photolemur… isn’t for everyone. Let me say that right up front.
I have no doubt that this software will polarise people. Some people will think it’s the best thing ever — exactly what they need — and some people will think it’s a little basic for their needs.
So what IS Photolemur?Read More
The FalconEyes RX-18TD might be a pain in the butt to say, but it sure is an impressive light.
I’ve taken the FalconEyes light on two commercial jobs now, so I thought it’s time I gave it a proper, real-world, real life review. With real results. Because that’s what we’re all about on this site!Read More
Sharp are bringing out an 8k camera with a micro four thirds sensor?!
Well this has come out of nowhere! After so much speculation on whether a micro four thirds sensor even could produce 8k video, here we have a prototype camera — from a new manufacturer! — that can?
What a time to be a Micro Four Nerd.Read More
Pentax 110 lenses can very easily be adapted to micro four thirds cameras. The 110 “sensor” size is m43 sized so you don’t even need a fancy or expensive adapter to do it.
Are these lenses ridiculously small? Yes.
Are they capable? I think so.
And either way, it’s a ton of fun. Let’s check out the results!Read More
If you’ve been around here a while, you’ll know it’s no secret how much I love my Zhiyun Crane Plus.
I’ve had a whole host of gimbals in the past, from the Crane 2 to the tiny Crane M, and for my setup the Crane Plus is absolutely my “Goldilocks Gimbal”.
So the Zhiyun Weebill Lab has some big boots to fill.
How does it compare?Read More
The best micro four thirds lenses
(in my opinion!)
I have a lot of lenses. Like… a LOT. Probably way too many lenses. But LOOK HOW CUTE THEY ARE! This is a family photo I can get on board with.Read More
The Instamic is such a nerdy device. I think it’ll attract two sorts of people:
“What the heck is that and WHY?”
“THAT IS SO COOL *grabby hands*”
… I think you might be able to guess which category I fall into.Read More
