Testing the New Canon RF 24-240mm Over Three Weeks in Pakistan

I can’t even begin to describe how excited I was about trying out the new Canon RF 24-240mm f/4-6.3 IS. Full disclosure: I’m a Canon Ambassador and two months before it hit the shelves, I was sent the lens for testing. This review reflects my personal experiences and opinion. It’s about using the lens daily […]

Review: Sigma 35mm f/1.2 Art for Sony FE, Sigma’s Fastest Lens Ever

Back in early July, Sigma announced the development of three new mirrorless lenses that were designed to be used with Sony and Panasonic full-frame mirrorless cameras from the start, unlike their previous E-mount Art Primes, which looked like they had an MC-11 grafted onto them. One of the lenses that was announced was the 35mm […]

A Prime Lens Photographer Tries Out Tamron f/2.8 Zoom Lenses

Being in the photography game over 12 years has given me some fixed routines that are hard to break. Routines like focusing solely on prime lenses. In the last few years I’ve been carrying 20mm, 35mm, 85mm, and 200mm fixed focal length lenses on my camera bag while occasionally wondering if the grass looks greener […]

A Review of Camera Shutter Sounds: Nikon at Top, Leica at Bottom

The quality of a camera’s shutter sound probably isn’t high on the list of what any photographer considers when looking to buy a new body, but Lensrentals has just published a tongue-in-cheek review/comparison of shutter sounds anyway. “As a leading authority on optical testing and product reviews, it occurred to the Lensrentals staff recently that […]

Who is the King of Compacts? Ricoh GR III vs Fuji X100F

If you’re going to get serious about shooting all the time, the best camera you can buy yourself is a quality compact. High-end DSLRs and interchangeable lens mirrorless cameras can be intimidating to shoot with for the everyday photos, not to mention an unnecessarily heavy load to carry. A compact is a camera you can […]

Sony a7R IV: First Impressions and Real-World Photos

A few weeks ago, Sony asked me if I wanted to do a quick test run with the (at that time) unannounced Sony a7R IV. I was pleasantly surprised as I (and I am sure many others) expected the a7S III to come out first. I agreed and was excited to be one of the […]

Two Essentials for Stress-Free Camera Tethering via USB-C

In the film days, which for me ended in late 2004, instant film was the only way for a photographer (and everyone else on set) to see what was being captured. From the perspective of a celebrity/fashion photographer, these could be some tense moments as celebrities, publicists and clients would gather around to take a […]

Review: Lensbaby Omni is a Fun Way to Get In-Camera Effects

Lensbaby has become a bit of a household name in recent years and for those of us searching for a more unique look to our images, Lensbaby has been there to provide a whole host of creative solutions. Its latest product is no different, but this time around it isn’t producing a new lens, but […]

Two Issues I Had with the Leica Q2 in the 1st Month: Dust and Banding

After using a Leica Q for 3.5 years, I decided to pre-order the eagerly anticipated Q2 in early March 2019. Despite owning a number of cameras over the years, the Leica Q had become my go-to camera for its light weight, small size, and high image quality. While I hope to do a full review […]

My Nightmare with USPS Insurance in Shipping a Camera Lens

Photography is amazing, but it does require gear. I recently moved from Canon to Sony, so I had to offload a camera body, lenses, flashes, and triggers. I purchased out-of-pocket insurance on all of my gear packages just to have some peace-of-mind. I sent the last piece of my Canon kit, my awesome Tamron 70-200mm […]

Why the Fujifilm GFX 100 is Next Level

There has never been a camera that combines such stunning image quality, resolution, dynamic range, autofocus performance, overall handling, and ergonomics like the new Fujifilm GFX 100 does. Previous medium format digital camera systems have been able to deliver very high-resolution images for a good 10 years now, but have sorely been lacking in handling […]

Street Photography Compositions with the Ricoh GR III

At first glance, all we see is a dinky point-n-shoot camera; not much to it. It slips inside my front pocket, I mean, how powerful can it be? Well, photographers shouldn’t be fooled by its size and minimalism; like many of our subjects in the street. The Ricoh GR III is called a “wolf in […]

Using the D1, Nikon’s First Homegrown DSLR

It is June 15th, 1999. The box office is being dominated by the release of the first new Star Wars in 16 years, even though it is tainted by one Jar Jar Binks. Until this day, photography was largely dominated by a technology that had existed for over a hundred years. It was a technology […]

Yes, The Huawei P30 Pro Can Shoot the Milky Way (and Even Meteors)

My Huawei P30 Pro arrived at 4:30 pm on April 6th, and I knew the night sky in Mersing would be amazing for me to try out this low-light beast. I had read a lot of good reviews on P30 Pro, but I was still skeptical, so I booked a room at my regular resort […]

Review: Tamron 35-150mm f/2.8-4 is a Portrait Zoom with Endless Flexibility

Back in February, Tamron announced the development of three new lenses: the 35mm f/1.4 for DSLRs, the 17-28mm f/2.8 for Sony FE, and the 35-150mm f/2.8-4 for DSLRs. We just received the 35-150mm f/2.8-4 Di VC OSD for Nikon F mount to test out for a few days. It’s always exciting to test out new […]

Long-Term Review: The Nikon 300mm f/2.8 VR is an Ultimate Bokeh Lens

If you ever feel like quitting your job and buying a plane ticket to some exotic location with only your backpack in tow, you might wonder which lens to bring. The Nikon 300mm f/2.8 would be on the top of my list. Okay, let’s face it: it’s awkward sometimes to shoot on full-frame with a […]

A Landscape Photographer’s Review of the Samsung S10+

This article is not meant to be an in-depth review of the Samsung S10+. The review will chiefly discuss the cell phone’s camera capabilities from a landscape photographer’s standpoint. The first thing I noticed when I began using the Samsung S10+ was how well calibrated the screen is in terms of colors, black point and […]

Godox V1 vs Profoto A1: A Battle of the Round-Head Flashes

The Godox V1 round-head flash is coming to market despite the loud protests and legal threats of Profoto, which claims its A1 design was stolen (something Godox denies). If you’re wondering how the $259 V1 compares to the $995 A1, photographer Robert Hall has a sneak peek for you. In the 14.5-minute video above, Hall […]

Samsung Galaxy S10 5G Ties Huawei P30 Pro for #1 at DxOMark

Samsung and Huawei are #1 and #2 (respectively) in worldwide smartphone market share, and now they’re together at the top of the DxOMark smartphone camera quality test leaderboard. The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G just scored the same best-ever score of 112 as the Huawei P30 Pro. And while its overall camera test score ties Huawei’s […]

Justifying the Noctilux and Its Place in My Workflow

I have gone through the gear of almost every major brand during my early photography journey, buying my way through cameras and lenses until I arrived at my current setup, which has remained more or less the same for my entire professional career. Despite settling on a brand known for its high price point, I […]
