  • The ILCE-A7R

    by Maddrew | 8th of November, 2014

            My first Sony mirrorless was the NEX-3. When Sony first released their NEX system, it had a total of just three lenses. A pancake 16mm F2.8, a standard zoom 18-55mm F3.5-F5.6 and a do-all zoom 18-200mm. I was using the Sony DSLR-A550 at the time, which... More
  • 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
  • First post: missed pictures and life lesson

    by Oliena | 15th of March, 2014

    Hello! It’s my first post here, so sorry if something is not so interesting and useful, as it could be! It was very warm day today and I felt essentially that all people should take the cameras with them EVERY time they go outside. Even if it is the Saturday walk... More

  • Im loving this.

    by Beyo1980 | 14th of June, 2013

    The last day of 2012. I still remember the day like it was yesterday. The time was ten in the morning, and I was cuddling my (at that moment) 6 month old son, while trying to get pictures with my Nikon 9100. I failed, and the compact fell to the ground. Lens locked, screen... More
  • Choosing for mirrorless

    by 1000wordsimages | 20th of May, 2013

    >I am shooting now with my Mirrorless cameras for about 1,5 year and I am very happy about the choice. Long time I was dreaming of having a small camera that creates the same quality images of a DSLR. I wanted something that I could easy take with me so that I will not miss... More
  • Memorable Moments

    by Lindsaybasson | 6th of March, 2013

    Since she took her first breath and became part of our family, my niece has been one of the greatest joys in our lives. She went from having dark brown hair to the most beautiful blonde locks. And those blue eyes of her are enough to make anyone’s heart melt. Yes, she is... More
  • Teaching Photography

    by Angelaostafichuk | 30th of January, 2013

    It's that time of year again. Christmas has come and gone and many people that got a digital camera for a present have given up in frustration, their dreams of being the next Ansel Adams or Steve McCurry gone out the door. Just because Santa dropped a camera in their... More
  • Contemplating the move to mirrorless

    by Gina rothfels | 4th of January, 2013

    I recently wrote an article entitled Are Mirrorless Cameras the Future of Digital Photography? which I've published on HubPages. I've read a lot about mirrorless cameras, including Brad Calkins' blog post Micro Four Thirds hitting its stride, which makes a very strong... More
  • Micro Four Thirds hitting its stride

    by Bradcalkins | 13th of September, 2012

    I wrote back in June about my new camera, the Olympus OM-D and my decision to switch to Micro Four Thirds for all of my photos. How is it working out, you might ask? Has the glow of a new purchase faded away into the noisy shadows of a small sensor? Hardly! I'm very... More
  • Oh no, he's back!

    by Shadow69 | 31st of August, 2012

    I haven’t written a blog for a while now. Things have been rather hectic for the last month or so. The sad thing is that I haven’t had that much time to pursue any of my interests that actually make me feel alive. The days just fuse into each other in a mundane and... More
  • Canon EOS M - Who's getting one?

    by Retina2020 | 23rd of July, 2012

    It's finally announced and looks very promising. I've been shooting a digital Rebel XT for awhile and always thought to upgrade to a 5D but since my son's arrival, I've been looking for a camera at is smaller but would still deliver the same quality as full fledged dSLRs.... More
  • Lesson number 1: how to buy a camera body

    by Kimdeadman | 21st of June, 2012

    When I bought my first SLR camera, I had absolutely no idea how it really worked and what to do with it. I soon worked out that just pointing an expensive lens at something and pressing a button did not automatically generate a work of art. This was a major blow for me, as... More

  • Seamless patterns - collection request

    by Celiaak | 11th of May, 2012

    I just realized that I have in my yet small portfolio around 70 seamless patterns, more than 30% of total images online. I guess that makes me a patterner, as I keep seing patterns everywhere even when falling asleep (I know you all do to, photographers or illustrators,... More
