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 of the unit in the future, I had two problems that caused me to send the unit to Leica’s service center within the first month.

Dust

My major complaint with the Leica Q was the lack of dust sealing, which eventually caused me

Regular readers know I have a soft spot for lenses like this. The Canon EF 200mm 2.0 L IS has been introduced in 2008 and is still the latest lens in its class. So how does it stack up compared to the older 200mm 1.8 L? And how does it work with the new real time AF of the gen 3 cameras? Find out in this review!

Fstoppers Reviews the Alter Rapid Filter System

Early on in my career, I was quite reluctant to use any kind of filter system. I was under the impression that any filter effects could be achieved by utilizing a few techniques such as mean stacking. I’ve changed my mind since then and I now regularly use filters for my work. The issue is they can be a hassle, however, a company called Alter may have a solution.

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 and speed, particularly when it comes to autofocus performance, and especially with the limitation of only one central autofocus point.

The GFX 100 on the other hand, with its 425 auto focus points tightly spread all across the sensor, delivers blazing fast focus without ever

Bokeh Monster: A Look at the Mitakon Zhongyi Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95 III Lens

Most of us have used an f/1.4 or f/1.8 lens at some point and seen the crazy bokeh you can get once you start getting into those really wide apertures. But f/0.95 is more than a stop wider than even f/1.4, and the light-gathering power and bokeh you can get from such a lens is on an entirely different level.

Street Photography Compositions with the Ricoh GR III


This post is by Michael Zhang from PetaPixel

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 sheep’s clothing” for a reason.

Most serious street photographers have similar things in common. They search for lighting, colors, story, composition, they study the masters, they analyze their own photos and learn from them, and they practice even when they don’t feel like it (ok,

Review: ClearVoiceover audio plugin


This post is by Allan TĂ©pper from ProVideo Coalition

In my experience, to make a musical sound bed “fit” well under a dry voiceover, you either have to duck the music (i.e. attenuate it) or equalize it to make the voice “fit”, without overall ducking. Many people prefer the latter, since the music can sound fuller without compromising the intelligibility. However, if you are not Chris Curran (with his years of experience mastering commercial music albums), you probably don’t have the ears, the knowledge —or the patience— to EQ the music bed appropriately by yourself. Enter the ClearVoiceover plugin to save the day! ClearVoiceover officially works with many

The small size and the rugged build make the small flip-out screen 4K camera appear perfect to mount to innumerable moving vehicles. High Frame Rates (HFR) like 1000fps definitely builds a recipe for a life of action for the little RX0 II. Hidden beneath the Water, Dust, Shock, and Crushproof body of the RX0 II is a 4K Vlog camera perfect for the traveler and social media savvy video creator.

Fstoppers Review: Taking Tamron’s 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 on the Road

Tamron has long been known as a reliable manufacturer of high-quality lenses, and their recent series of SP lenses has more than demonstrated their commitment to excellence. Through priorities for speed, clarity, optics, and a field-friendly design, Tamron has created a fabulous workhorse lens in their new 15-30mm (Model A041). The lens replaces the previous Model A012, delivering a variety of new features that make the lens not only faster and more reliable than its predecessor, but allowing it to yield surprisingly crisp, beautiful images. I put the 15-30mm G2 to the test on my recent 17-day journey through Belize, Continue reading “Fstoppers Review: Taking Tamron’s 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 on the Road”

If you’re a bokeh fanatic, you’re probably always chasing those wide aperture lenses to get that smooth, out-of-focus look that makes your subject pop against the background. But, you might be surprised by the beautiful bokeh you can get from a lens that only has an aperture of f/2.8. Check out this great video on a fascinating lens.

An Insider’s Look at a Photo Workshop Disaster

I wrote an article in 2017 about bad photography workshops, and I made a promise to the community that I would never speak at, attend, or help promote a workshop again unless it was one I believed in wholeheartedly. I promised to do my due diligence when accepting speaking engagements and I promised that the events I did agree to speak at would be of the highest standards.

As an educator and coordinator of my own workshops, I have set a very high bar for educational events, and that is why I am devastated to admit publicly that I
