How to Use Your ColorChecker Passport in Capture One

How to Use Your ColorChecker Passport in Capture One For the longest time, I've been trying to move away from using Lightroom and instead use Capture One all the time. Even with the latest update, Capture One is still much faster and more effective for editing, especially when it comes to the high-resolution files I normally work with. The only thing that prevented me from switching over completely was the lack of support for the X-Rite ColorChecker Passport. [ Read More ]

Shooting the Fuji GFX 50S With the Techart Adapter and Canon Tilt-Shift Lenses

Shooting the Fuji GFX 50S With the Techart Adapter and Canon Tilt-Shift Lenses For many architectural photographers, tilt-shift lenses from Canon are the go-to option. These particular lenses are quite possibly the best available, and although Nikon has their variants, they just don't seem to be as good as Canon. The problem, however, is that Canon doesn't currently offer the best camera to put those lenses on with cameras like the Nikon D850 and Sony a7R III offering much better noise performance and dynamic range. In this video, I adapt Canon lenses to Fuji's medium format camera. [ Read More ]

Fujifilm X-H1: A Disappointing Release

Fuji GFX 50s With Techart Adapter: Sigma 85mm f/1.4 Art Versus GF 110mm f/2

Fuji GFX 50s With Techart Adapter: Sigma 85mm f/1.4 Art Versus GF 110mm f/2 One of the really great things about the Fuji GFX 50s is the fact that it has a shutter built into the camera instead of it being in the lens. With a sync speed of only 1/125 of a second, on the surface, this may seem like a massive downside for the Fuji compared to the Hasselblad X1D which uses a leaf shutter mechanism. Instead, this one feature opens the GFX to a whole world of adaptable lenses and possibilities. [ Read More ]

Do You Ever Feel Like Your Work Sucks?

Do You Ever Feel Like Your Work Sucks? There have been far too many occasions in the past where I've been holding back from either starting a project or completing it. I would start procrastinating, finding different reasons and excuses to do anything but the project at hand. This mostly came down to the fact that I was unhappy with the work I was producing. I wanted my work to look like the stuff I saw on Instagram or Fstoppers, however, no practice no progress. Fortunately, for the most part, I have been able to remedy that mentality, although the feeling does creep up from time to time. Continue reading "Do You Ever Feel Like Your Work Sucks?"

Fujifilm GFX Vs. Canon 5DS R Vs. Pentax 645Z: Battle of the 50s

Fujifilm GFX Vs. Canon 5DS R Vs. Pentax 645Z: Battle of the 50s Up until now, Canon is still the only full-frame manufacturer that offers a 50-megapixel camera. The Canon 5DS R is still very much my favorite full-frame camera to use for any professional work. The usability and image quality are what appeals so much to me. Medium format, however, has always been seen as something that's a little out of reach for many photographers, but with releases from Pentax and Fuji the price has really come down and they're much more viable now than they have ever been. In my latest video, I decided to compare the Canon 5DS R, The Continue reading "Fujifilm GFX Vs. Canon 5DS R Vs. Pentax 645Z: Battle of the 50s"

NiSi Pro 1.5-5 ND-VARIO Filter: The Best Filter for Video?

NiSi Pro 1.5-5 ND-VARIO Filter: The Best Filter for Video? When it comes to filming, using a fast shutter speed is generally a bad idea. For most applications, you'll probably want to keep your shutter speed somewhere around 1/60 of a second, maybe even slower, depending of course on what frame rate your shooting at. The reason for this is because it allows for more smoother and cinematic looking footage which isn't choppy or harsh looking. Faster shutters speeds generally can be a little jarring to look at. The problem with this is that to compensate for this slower shutter speed you may need to stop your lens down. This, Continue reading "NiSi Pro 1.5-5 ND-VARIO Filter: The Best Filter for Video?"

What Canon’s Full-Frame Mirrorless System Needs to Be Successful

What Canon's Full-Frame Mirrorless System Needs to Be Successful To many of us, it's become apparent that mirrorless is the future for cameras. The huge advancements in short period of time have made them very popular. Companies like Fuji, Sony, and Panasonic have developed some fantastic cameras, and their respective ecosystems are growing fast with new lenses and accessories. Currently, Canon and Nikon have remained behind when it comes to effective and professional mirrorless systems and many disappointed professionals have already jumped ship to other manufacturers. As it becomes clear that Canon is developing their own model, here's what I think it needs to compete with those alread out Continue reading "What Canon’s Full-Frame Mirrorless System Needs to Be Successful"

How To Get Medium Format Colors With Full Frame

Over the last few months, I have been in contact with Phase One to test their latest medium format camera, the IQ3 100MP Trichromatic. The standard 100MP backs from both Hasselblad and Phase One, already have incredible colors, due to being able to produce 16-bit raw files. Phase One, however, decided this wasn’t enough and their latest sensor is a genuinely brilliant update. I have been rather tough on medium format in the past, however, this new camera is a significant step in the right direction. I will confidently call this the best sensor currently on the market. The best,

What if we Continue reading "How to Get Medium Format Colors With Your Full Frame Camera"

Canon Versus Nikon: Which Is Best for Wildlife Photographers?

Canon Versus Nikon: Which Is Best for Wildlife Photographers? Wildlife photography is one of the more expensive kinds of photography, with some popular lenses costing over $10,000. For many photographers, trying to get close enough to the subject may require longer 600mm lenses, but when you consider the price for each of them, a little research can definitely go a long way. The Canon 600mm F/4L II is a little cheaper than the Nikon 600mm F4E; however, sometimes the price isn't a major factor when deciding which to buy. [ Read More ]
