    Micro 4/3 Throwback kit

    I still keep an E-520 with a replacement split-image and microprism screen as my basic stabilized digital back for use with legacy film SLR glass. It's much more ergonomically balanced for that task than the Micro 4/3 bodies are, although I wish the sensor were better in low light. I just...

    Nikon 3200 with lens for $269

    I can't take a good photo with a DSLR, because I invariably didn't take it with me because it was too big and heavy.

    Nikon Front-mounted Teleconverters are better than you think

    They still work well if you use the right converter on the right lens. I've got a wide converter (FujiFilm WL-FXE01) that works very well on the Nikon 1 10mm lens, and now I've got 1.9x and 1.7x teleconverters that work well on the 30-110mm and my F-mount 70-300mm Tamron lens. And most of...

    Nikon Front-mounted Teleconverters are better than you think

    I recently was looking at extending the reach of my lens sets at the long end for both Nikon 1 and Micro 4/3, but doing so without a major outlay of bucks. I decided to experiment with front-mounted teleconverters, after reading some very interesting blog postings from a fellow named Dr...

    Leica M2 + 40mm f2 Rokkor

    If you could find one, IMHO, the best of all would be to get your hands on a Minolta CLE, to use with that wonderful 40mm lens. IMHO, it was the first modern "Leica".

    Best Buy clearing out 40.5mm accessories now that they've dropped Nikon 1

    FYI, they are selling a 40.5mm Circular Polarizer (Chinese-made, from Rocketfish) for $3.99, and 40.5mm pinch lens caps for $1.99. If you need these accessories, about the only way to get them any cheaper is to buy them from Chinese sellers on ebay and wait a month for them to arrive in the...

    What's your favorite sensor? Why? And what is particularly good at?

    I can't judge sensors, because the software that controls it in a specific camera implementation that most impacts the results, not the sensor. OTOH, Fuji Velvia was my favorite sensor, back in the day.

    Nikon Tamron 70-300mm f4~5.6 SP DI VC lens works very well on my Nikon V2

    Several months ago, I had purchased the Nikon DX 55-300mm AF-S VR lens for use on my Nikon 1 setup with an FT-1, and frankly, I was not overwhelmed by it, especially when shooting at the long end, wide open. As a result - along with the general unavailability of the 70-300mm Nikon cx lens, as...

    Nikon Rokinon RMC 7.5mm Fisheye Lens For Nikon 1

    I find it strange that this is a totally different lens from the Rokinon 7.5mm f3.5mm fisheye for Micro 4/3. That's an excellent lens with a much more useful f3.5 max aperture.

    A close call this AM (non photo)

    Bartjeej, you are not alone. I know someone who once dipped a chip into a bowl of wasabi at a buffet, thinking it was guacamole, and swallowed it. I don't believe that they will ever make that mistake again.
