    Canon Canon G1X III: Finally, a huge step forward for the G X series ...

    One of the interesting - and to me, quite useful, aspects of the G1xMkiii, is its touch-screen-shutter release. I discovered the fascinating joys of touch-screen shutter shooting with my diminutive Lumix GM1 - but it took me some time to realize - and understand - that the G1x3 has an equally...

    Two more, both portraits, of friends I'm working with in Mexico right now. First is Edgar Luzanilla aka 'Luza', a brilliant camera operator and fine cinematographer as well as a general all-around cool human being --- in an early morning hour, preparing for the metaphorical battles (of...

    Two more from the Rx1R which is getting a workout. The first, an available light portrait of a writer friend, working on a project, in a moment of concentration - The next, shot inside the Metrobus - Mexico City's inexpensive and popular form of mass transit - at midday (using Ray Sachs' zone...

    It (the Rx1R) is definitely good for more than merely close-ish portraits, wide open. It's proving to be an interesting jack-of-all-trades-photographic-instrument, metaphorically speaking. This photo was taken at an ancient Balneario - or combination public swimming pool slash water park - in...

    And one more from the same series, this one in color. People always talk about the 35mm FOV (field of view) as being a 'wide angle' but for me, it's almost always seemed more of a normal perspective - the way I see the world. Another reason why the Rx1R, with its fixed 35mm lens, seems an easy...

    I remember reading with fascination a handful of posts by Ray Sachs about a clever 'hack' to transform the Rx1 (and Rx1R and Rx1Rii as well) into zone-focusing street-shooting cameras. I reread them and am not quite certain that I understood everything Ray was saying, but I decided to try out...

    The photographer whose work I have followed - and admired - for years - and who for most of those years has used one or another Pentax DSLR body - but who for many years seemed to shoot a lot with the DA21 - is Tyler Monson. Some years ago, he spent 113 hours in Reykjavik, Iceland - and shot a...

    Like you, I couldn't bear getting rid of my older Pentax K200D body; I had two of them, made the mistake of selling the first one and had to buy a second to replace it. They are very affordable these days as I'm sure you know because of their supposedly antiquated sensors but damn are they...

    I longed for the simpler times, now I long for the affordable days...

    The older generation of Pentax DSLR's - the K10D, the K20D, as well as the K200D - all featured CCD sensors as opposed to the newer CMOS sensors which took over the world - and for years, many Pentaxians believed that in spite of their relative deficiencies and 'Cons', the rendering capabilities...

    The PL (Panasonic/Leica) 15mm lens....is an astonishingly great lens. I have a handful of truly fine lenses for my mu43 bodies but the 15mm PL tends to put them all to shame. It also tends to 'grow on one', the more you use it. Congrats on an excellent purchase ;)

    Speaking of "the character of old SLR glass" - and I realize that there are different strokes for different folks, as the saying goes - the one semi-modern (although retro-styled) digital camera I have found which really seems to be able to render images the same (often wonderful) ways its...

    Well, I think with any camera it takes some time to figure out how to get the best out of it - and I know it took me some time to figure out the G1x Mk3's quirks. In fact I've had the camera for almost 2 years now and am still figuring out some tricks. I love the EVF and use it frequently -...

    Pentax Q-S1 Storm Drive

    These are, simply, an extraordinary bunch of photographs. Kind of makes me want to run out and buy a Pentax Q-S1, too...but, honestly, it's the eye of the photographer which gets kudos here. Really a great set of images.
