    Nikon Holga/Nikon...

    The Holga, Nikon Mount lens is supposedly an F8 fixed set aperture. Research online says it's more like F22-25!! It certainly is very, very dim in the viewfinder (very pin-hole-ish) (live view on my mirrorless 4/3's cameras is Soooo much easier to use this lens - however I want the larger APS-c...

    Apple Apple announces Aperture sunset date, suggests migration to Adobe Lightroom Classic or Apple Photos

    If you're still using Apple's Aperture on your MacOS machines, even though Apple discontinued updating it back in 2014, you'll be facing an upgrade decision. MacOS Mojave will be the last version of the OS that will support running Aperture "for technical reasons". Apple's suggestion is to...
