Hands On with the 13-Inch MacBook Pro: Half the Update We Wanted

Earlier this week, Apple released the latest iteration of the 13-inch MacBook Pro. And while the update came with some very welcome additions, many felt that it was a half-step: a refresh rather than a redesign, like we saw with the 16-inch MacBook Pro earlier this year. Now that we have one in hand, we […]

Review: The DJI Mavic Air 2 is a Good Drone with Consumer-Level Caveats

I love drones, but I don’t love the stereotypes, stigmas, attention, and negativity that comes with them. I’ve been flying since the Phantom 4, so I got into it right as the wild west of drone flying was coming to an end, and restrictions and regulations were being rolled out. Now several years after that, […]

Best of Both Worlds: The Nikon D780 Gives You the Best of the D750 and Z6

A little over 2 years ago, I did some extensive testing of the Nikon D5, D750, D810 and the then-newly released D850. The comparison was to determine which was the best camera for night photography. I concluded that the answer depended on your needs and budget––I recommended the D750 as a great camera at an […]

Tamron 70-180mm f/2.8 Hands On: The Ideal Fast Zoom For Sony?

After teasing an “in development” announcement late last year, Tamron’s all new 70-180mm f/2.8 for Sony E-mount is finally about to hit store shelves. With the release of this lens, Tamron will complete their “holy trinity” for Sony mirrorless. With a slightly reduced focal length, budget friendly price, no image stabilization, and compact design, can […]

The Fuji X100V: Falling In Love All Over Again

Every time Fuji releases a new camera I feel like this is the generation that will let me leave Canon behind. I had the same hopes and eventual disappointments with the XT2 and the XT3. Inevitably, I would realize full frame always beats out crop frame, that high ISOs and battery life can’t be matched, […]

A Look at ‘The Decisive Moment’ by Henri Cartier-Bresson

A bible for photographers. That is how Robert Capa described The Decisive Moment by Henri Cartier-Bresson. After almost 70 years it was first published, this book has still a lot to say to photographers and especially to street and documentary photographers. The book said to be an essential one for any photography collection. But is […]

A Real-World Review of the Canon 1D X Mark III

As many of you know, I have been lucky enough to have a Canon EOS 1D X Mark III in my possession for more than a month now. People have been asking me to review this new top-of-the-line camera, but I really wanted to put it through its paces in order to do a fair […]

First Impressions: The Lumix S Pro 70-200mm f/2.8 OIS is a Solid Performer

Though it might seem less popular than other systems (probably due to marketing), the L Mount Alliance is producing some of the best full-frame lenses currently available. In this case, Panasonic Lumix worked in tandem with their buddies at Leica to release their second 70-200mm lens for full-frame systems: the Panasonic Lumix S Pro 70-200mm […]

8×10 Film vs 150MP Digital: Can 150 Megapixels Compete?

Over 8 years ago, we over at On Landscape performed a mammoth “Big Camera Comparison.” We compared medium format and large format film against various digital cameras including the then cutting edge Phase One IQ280, an 80MP CCD sensor which we used on a Linhof Techno, an Alpa, and a Cambo technical camera (we also […]

The Leica M10 Monochrom is Great Not in Spite of its Weaknesses, but Because of Them

Every time I mention the merits of anything related to Leica, I catch flack from a contingent of readers here that seem to be angry that I would even talk about a product that has a reputation for being overpriced and out of reach. “He must be bragging about owning one” or “overpriced crap” tend […]

Shooting a Wedding with the Leica M9

My name is Tomer, and I’ve been a street photographer for the past 12 years. Over the years, I’ve done a lot of event photography, shooting weddings, couples, families, and more. A few days ago, I got a job as a second shooter at a wedding from my friend Asaf Tamam, who’s a professional event […]

Hands On with the Fuji X-T4: Trying the IBIS, 240fps Slow Motion, and More

I didn’t have a terribly long time with Fujifilm’s latest hybrid shooter before it was released—it was only about a week for what you see shot below—but thankfully, not too much has changed since the previous X-T3, and what has is obvious and easy to evaluate. Compared to the X-T3, the X-T4 is still weather […]

As Expected, the Sony 20mm f/1.8 G Looks Really Good

These days, it’s probably more likely that you win the lottery than for Sony to make a bad lens. Their process over the last few years has been really dialed in, to the point where making a technically good piece of optics is their bread and butter. I have gone on record as saying that […]

Reviewer: The LomoMod No.1 with the Liquid Lens is ‘The Worst Camera I Ever Tested’

Vintage glass shooter and photography YouTuber Mathieu Stern recently got the chance to try Lomography’s special LomoMod No.1 cardboard film camera and special liquid-filled lens—an ostensibly “fun” combination that turned out to be a nightmare for Stern, who has dubbed it “the worst camera I ever tested.” Lomography’s quirkier cameras have never been for the […]

Long Term Review: Two Years with the Laowa 25mm 2.5-5x Ultra Macro Lens

Two years ago, Venus Optics sent macro photographer Thomas Shahan their Laowa 25mm f/2.8 2.5-5X Ultra Macro lens for testing. Now, after two continuous years of real-world use and testing, he’s finally gotten around to sharing his thoughts in a thoughtful review that will be a huge help to any extreme macro photographers who are […]

Hands On with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III: Lots to Love, Some Things to Question

I went into my hands-on with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III with no expectations. For me, it had been many years since I had used an Olympus (aside from an afternoon borrowing from a friend who had an older PEN camera about five years ago, the last time I shot with Olympus was with […]

3 Weeks with the New Fujifilm X100V

Over three years ago, I tested out the Fuji X100F and was introduced to the pleasantries of carrying around a capable point and shoot. Today’s agenda is the fifth installment of Fujifilm’s X100 line of cameras: the Fuji X100V. Once again I was asked to try out this beautiful little machine. I didn’t have a […]

Film vs Digital: Shooting a Wedding in Fujifilm ACROS

On my last shift at the film lab in Bondi, I picked up one of the last rolls of Fujifilm ACROS film. It seemed poignant — as my job at the shop was finishing, so too was the production of this film stock. The product’s discontinuation in March last year seemed to mark the death […]

Astrophotographer Reviews the Google Pixel 4’s Astro Mode

Astrophotographer Ian Norman of Lonely Speck recently got his hands on a Google Pixel 4 XL for testing, so he took it out to Joshua Tree National Park to see how well the “Astrophotography Mode” on this smartphone compares to shooting with a “real” camera. Right off the bat, it’s important to note that Ian […]

Do Professional Photographers Need a Mac Pro? No… Not Really

YouTuber Tyler Stalman recently got his hands on a review unit of both the Mac Pro and the Pro Display XDR, and while many tech YouTubers have reviewed these extreme (and extremely expensive) Apple products, he’s the first we’ve seen who’s evaluated them from the perspective of a professional photographer. The full video speaks to […]
