Where do I begin with the Nikon F4? Is my love of this camera rooted in the fact that four is my favorite number? Is it because one of my favorite jet warplanes as a child was the McDonnel Douglas F-4 Phantom II? Or, is the fact that I just love the look of Giorgetto Giugiaro’s Italdesign bodywork? Is it because when I started out in photography with my...

One of the first lenses I purchased after switching from DSLRs to mirrorless cameras was a Voigtländer COLOR-SKOPAR 21mm f/4 P, a manual-focus Leica M-mount lens that, dollar-for-dollar, is one of the smallest, lightest, and sharpest "pancake" ultra wide-angle lenses for full-frame...

For as long as I can remember, the heavy chunk of black Bakelite and chrome nicknamed “The Brick,” was a staple on a shelf in my parents’ living room. Officially known as the Argus C3, this solid pointy-edged rangefinder is said to be one of the most popular cameras in history, selling about 2 million units during its extraordinary 27-year production run, from 1939 to 1966. While this camera...

My Linhof Super Technika V is probably the camera I can least justify owning, but it’s probably also my most cherished camera. For me, it represents the type of camera I dreamt of owning, but thought I probably never would. The reason for this? It’s a luxurious camera. Akin to something like a Leica of large format, Linhof is a premium brand known for making the best of the best, having strong...
Classic Cameras: Olympus O-Product and dubble film Color Neg Film

The Olympus O-Product is a perfect real-world example of the phrase ‘You can’t tell a book by its cover.” Designed and produced in 1988 by industrial designer Naoki Sakai of Water Design to commemorate the 70th anniversary of Olympus cameras, under its skin the all-aluminum, retro-styled Olympus O-Product was in fact a plain Jane Olympus Infinity Junior point-and-shoot camera. Produced in a...

One of the reasons people have been rediscovering, or in some cases, first discovering the art and craft of film photography has to do with the analog experience that goes hand-in-hand with it. Few people will dispute the imaging abilities of modern digital cameras, nor can one poo-poo the imaging abilities of the latest smartphones. What is missing for many photography enthusiasts is the hands-...
Classic Cameras: Olympus Stylus Epic
3 weeks ago
Share
Printed on the back of the camera is “ULTRA COMPACT 35mm CAMERA,” which is an apt descriptor of the Olympus Stylus Epic. However, this certainly isn’t a fully fleshed-out description of what this camera is, what it can do, or how well-received this camera has been since it was introduced in 1997. Known outside of North America as the μ[mju:]-II (or just “mju-II”), the Stylus Epic could be...
Hands-On Review: The Sony FE 135mm f/1.8 GM Lens

Portrait photographers have long clutched their precious 85mm f/1.4 lenses. They have had good reason. The 85mm is seemingly a Goldilocks length—not too long, not too short—and the f/1.4 provides that creamy bokeh we always want when photographing people. I think the 85mm can step aside to make...

My favorite camera I never bought was the original Sony RX0. Weird, I know, to start off a review of its next generation this way, but I just want to emphasize how appealing the design of the RX0 is to certain individuals. Deciding not to purchase it came down to a single, fatal flaw: no internal 4K. That’s why, when Sony dropped the...

I've traveled to many locales over the years, but a recent trip to China was about as far as I've ever been from home, and not just distance-wise. China is a place of extremes and this trip proved to be an amazing experience on many levels. Photographs © Allan Weitz, 2019...
