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 […]

Nikon 58mm f/0.95 Noct: A Wedding Photographer’s First Impressions

Indian wedding photographer Ankita Asthana recently traveled to Rome for a shoot and brought along the $8,000 Nikon NIKKOR Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct lens to test out. She shares her thoughts and a behind-the-scenes look at the shoot in this 7-minute video. Priced at $8,000, the Nikon Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct is the […]

Fuji X-Pro3, or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

I was lucky enough to attend the local launch event of the Fujifilm X-Pro3. After spending half a day with the camera, I was surprised to see myself enjoying it so much after being somewhat critical of the concept. Having spent about a month with a pre-production prototype, I’ve found myself in a situation where […]

The Leica M6 TTL .85 is the Best 35mm Film Camera Ever Conceived

I’m not going to wax poetic about the Leica M6 TTL .85. I don’t need to. This camera is the best 35mm film camera ever conceived or constructed. Chances are, you’re reading this because you’re a photographer interested in buying the best Leica that you can. Or perhaps you already own a Leica and just […]

NFL Photographer Reviews the Canon 1D X Mark III, Calls it a Game-Changer

Fancy Live View and Video features aside, the Canon 1D X Mark III is primarily a camera for sports photographers. So who better to review it than Peter Read Miller, a seasoned pro with decades of experience taking pictures for Sports Illustrated, AP Images, and the NFL? Miller has been shooting with the 1D X […]

Back from the Drawing Board: Mitakon 85mm 1x-5x Macro Lens Redesigned

Late last year, macro photographers rejoiced at the announcement of a worthy competitor to the Canon MP-E 65mm f/2.8 1x-5x macro lens, which has been heralded as the best high-magnification macro lens since its release in 1999. The Mitakon 85mm f/2.8 1x-5x lens held a lot of promise, but it was immediately apparent that something […]

Evaluating Peerspace, the Airbnb of Photo/Video Studio Spaces

If you’re shooting often, it can be pretty easy to fall into a rut. Maybe that’s just me, but when I feel like I have to shoot, which is often, it can be a challenge to force creativity. I don’t have access to a studio all of the time, and even when I do that […]
