Wide-angle field of view, compact design, impressively sharp: If I could distill this review of the new FUJIFILM GF 30mm f/3.5 R WR lens into a few select points, that would be it. Luckily, though, I can talk a bit more about FUJIFILM's newest lens for its mirrorless medium format camera systems....

One of the best things about shooting film is the complete control you have over the process, from film choice and exposure to development and either scanning or printing. We spend a lot of time focusing on the different films you can use and then a lot of time on how to produce your finished images from that film, but there’s general oversight on the development stage. I’m certainly guilty of...

Is your father a passionate photographer, someone who lives and breathes pixels, is always shopping for the newest gear, and is also flaunting their existing prized collection of cameras, lenses, and other photo odds and ends?

Not all fathers are photographers, but for those who are, I’d argue that a point-and-shoot camera is essential tech for the dads in the world. Even for those with the latest smartphone, point-and-shoots are dedicated, purpose-built tools that excel in areas where phones can’t quite keep up. And,...

For most photographers, the home studio is the studio. Many of us don’t have our own separate studio or frequent access or the need to work at a professional commercial studio. And regardless if it’s time, accessibility, availability, resources, or even by choice, the truth is that it’s often a lot easier and more convenient to do our “studio photography” at home. Convenience and preference aside...

It's 2020 and full-frame imaging is now part of the norm. It seems as though up until not too long ago, full frame was a rare and exotic bird, but now is among the most common and expected technologies for a high-end, even middle-of-the-road, camera to have.

Over the years, I’ve dabbled with many cameras and many film formats. I’ve used pretty much everything from 8 x 10" view cameras to half-frame 35mm cameras and ended up settling on 6 x 7 for the majority of my work.

When the Nikon Z 50 was originally launched, it was positioned as an ideal camera for up-and-coming multimedia image-makers—it’s compact, well-connected, nimble, and part of the growing Nikon Z mirrorless system.

Mother’s Day 2020 will prove to be an especially unique holiday this year, with many brunches taking the form of extended video calls. Nonetheless, it’s still a holiday worth celebrating to the fullest and, despite many of us not being able to be with Mom physically on her special day, it’s important to show her how much we care. A gift of some kind goes a long way, especially now, and one gift...
