  • When less could be... more. A personal review of the Olympus OM-D E-M5

    by Ciolca | 29th of September, 2014

    Some time ago I upgraded to full frame. I traded my excellent Nikon D7000 for a brand new D610. I have also replaced the standard zoom Tamron 17-55 f/2.8 with its bigger brother 24-70 f/2.8 for full frame. All was OK, I was extremely satisfied with the move. But besides the... More
  • Compact camera or pancake lens?

    by Martingraf | 30th of January, 2013

    Lately I realized that I wasn't using my Canon 5D II as much as I should. I also realized that about 70 percent of my uploads were done with my compact camera Canon G1X. Well the reason was quite obvious - I had my Canon G1X most of the time with me when I went travelling,... More
  • Viewfinder or LCD screen? Bet Cartier-Bresson would've gone LCD!

    by Alamourus | 15th of December, 2012

    Just got the new Canon M shipped in from Hong Kong (no shipping, tax or duty charges!) and it has no viewfinder. For a lot of people, that is a big omission and it weighed heavily on my mind before I decided to purchase it. I've had compacts before and they are ok but... More
  • Olympus OM-D E-M5 Review

    by Bradcalkins | 22nd of June, 2012

    If you follow my blogs and forum posts, you know I've long been a fan of the Micro Four Thirds system. I'm a firm believer that for most photos or end uses we have reached a point where full frame cameras are an unnecessary expense (each to their own, of course!). I've... More
  • Which compact camera do you use for stock?

    by Julia161 | 4th of January, 2012

    Hi, I'm thinking to buy a compact camera to carry inside pocket. Could you, please, advise, which is usable for stock? Thanks a lot! See Article
  • Fuji X10 - good compact for stock?

    by Bradcalkins | 18th of November, 2011

    I must confess that I'm on an endless quest - in search of a compact camera that has a few key requirements: 1. Portable. I want a zoom for unexpected situations, and it must fit in a pocket or purse when needed. I find cameras like the Canon S95 just a bit too small,... More
  • SD versus CF or simple SD and CF

    by Digikhmer | 9th of November, 2011

    I am using this for quite a long period already. It us such a big convenient thing to manage my pictures during holidays, long trip etc... It is a simple item which is a Secure Drive to Compact Flash converter commonly called SD/CF converter. The unit has the same size... More
  • Compromises with benefits - Canon S95

    by Sdenness | 21st of August, 2011

    DSLR = quality photos Point & Shoot = lower quality photos DSLR = no photos (couldn't bring the camera) Compact Point & Shoot = some photos (camera in pocket) Canon S95 = compromise with benefits ------------------------------------- I recently added a Canon... More
  • How to recover images from corrupt card .... Essential tool

    by Bevanward | 8th of June, 2011

    I thought I should share another lesson I learnt this week past. I was helping shoot some stills around a friends commercial film from morning until lunch on Saturday. I then went to download what I had, around 400 images, when my laptop registered that the card was unreadable.... More
  • Compact envy ... Canon G12 is coming

    by Bevanward | 15th of September, 2010

    If there is one thing worse than not having your camera when needed, it is only having a poor quality camera. You end up with an impression of what could have been so much more.... oh the pain and torment! I look back to images from my first digital and wish that I was... More
  • Photography - work with what you have

    by Nikitu | 29th of January, 2010

    I was watching a make-up artist today telling people how to do the same make-up or even better with what they had at home and not buy ridiculously expensive products just to try and match his work. Sometimes people ask us, editors, if they should buy a better camera, a "... More
  • Review: Canon G10

    by Bradcalkins | 7th of January, 2009

    I got a Canon G10 over Christmas and it is definitely a great little camera. I was worried that the high megapixel count and small sensor would drop my approval rating compared to the DSLR I've been using up until now. After getting a first batch accepted, with no rejections... More
  • Aspect Ratio

    by Bradcalkins | 29th of December, 2008

    As if there weren't enough things to think about, I recently started thinking about yet another aspect (pun intended) of stock photography: aspect ratio. I got a compact camera this Christmas and discovered that it was 4:3, rather than 3:2 as I'm used to with a DSLR. This... More
  • Backing Up While Away From Home?

    by Charlesoutcalt | 3rd of March, 2008

    Here's a question for anyone who cares to comment: How many backups do you keep while you're traveling? And how do you do it? I don't have nearly enough CF cards to hold all my images if I'm on the road for more than a couple days, so I transfer the files to my laptop,... More
  • The ironic nature of photo competition today

    by Fertographer | 6th of November, 2007

    It suddenly struck my mind about this issue even though I did think about it before some time back. I am in this nikon club for nikon camera users in singapore hence nikonclub.com.sg I am using this as an example rather that directing it at the above mention. Have... More
