No Pants Day #1 - Buying a camera

I was involved in a conversation recently on Facebook regarding someone almost purchasing a lens until they read a review somewhere where they conclusion was a bit less than stellar.  What lens it was and what review it was is irrelevant.  The bottom line is this...

Does anyone really make a "bad" lens these days?

The x100/x100s must have accessory

There are few things in photography that I would call "must have".  Sure there are the obvious....if you want to shoot land/cityscapes, at night, you must have a tripod.  If you want to shoot wildlife, National Geographic style, you must have a super telephoto.  If you you don't like Sriracha, you must have a problem.

A day with... Fuji X-T1 and Fujinon 10-24mm f/4

All of us have certain joys in life.  I'm a fan of the coveted coke float....sure it's a ton of pointless calories...but man oh man...it's so delicious...especially following something spicy.  Always brings a smile to my face.  When Fuji first announced the X-T1 last month just as I was reviewing the X-E2, yet another smile slowly crept up.  I was pretty impressed with the X-E2 and have simply been floored with the products Fuji has been putting out over the past year.

One day with... Fuji X-E2 14mm/2.8

It's no secret, I love the Fuji x100s.  As a company that makes cameras and lenses, I'm loving Fuji more and more.  Very often we look at cameras we've borrowed, seen at the store and bought and think to ourselves "I'd love if this or that were different/better".  What makes Fuji special?  They seem to listen to it's customers.

Life with the Sony A7r

It's been 2 months since I've picked up the much awaited a7r.  I have since sold my Canon 5D3, a slew of Canon L lenses and my ever so beloved Sigma 35mm/1.4 Art lens.  Why?  Cause this thing is fucking amazing!  What's not to like?

Oh...Hey Bokeh

The term "boke" or "bokeh" became popular in the late 90's and if you frequent any photography site or forum nowadays, you can't browse for longer than a few minutes before coming across someone commenting on the "bokeh" of a particular image.  It is used to describe the quality, rendition and implementation of the out of focus area in a photograph.

The DSLR lives on!!

Over recent months I've read many articles which state or elude to the statement "The DSLR is dead"... I couldn't disagree more with this. The DSLR lives on and lives strong, and with that being said I have completely moved away from DLSRs.
