    Leica Organizing gear

    When I moved into my condo, I had the closet designed & built and I'm generally happy with it. However using the shelves to store lenses, accessories, etc. proved to be a frustrating exercise. I order to find something, one needs to empty the shelf to see what's in the back and out of sight. The...

    Philosophy The Obsession with "gear"

    Just why do so many of us seem to acquire more and more "gear" in pursuit of photographs? Lets just look at one of my favourite photographers, James Ravilious. Although he studied at art school (under an assumed name since he was the son of a famous engraver Eric Ravilious) he was a self taught...

    My camera gear rationalization strategy is under way (again!).

    About 3 or 4 years ago I decided to get out of mirrorless and just use fixed lens cameras. I settled on a Sony RX10 III for versatility and a Fuji X100T for its style. This was driven largely by my developing Parkinson's Disease and the resulting clumsiness - a sound decision. In the last...

    What I've learned from owning "too many" cameras ...

    Man-in-the-middle attack ... I know the title may sound click-bait-y, but please bear with me for a moment if you, like me, are susceptible to the affliction we call "GAS" ... For us photography enthusiasts, chasing gear is almost as common a tendency as feeling dissatisfied with what we...

    Fuji Two pieces of equipment Fuji should make

    There are two things that Fuji could easily make (or, for that matter, a third party, with Fuji in mind) which would make life easier for us. The first is an X-E battery pack/grip. The camera is just too small for grownups to hold. I have grips for both of my X-E2s and for my X-Pro1, and...

    Gear head lover website!

    I just came across a website called Shotkit today where various photographers covering different types of photography discuss what gear they use, why they use it, and provide a little background about themselves. For the gear porn lovers, the photographers also post a photo of their gear (along...

    Film Shoe-mounted light meter options?

    Hi all it would be quite nice to get a light meter that fits in the accessory shoe on my Zorki. The only ones I have seen on eBay are pretty expensive. Does anyone know of a cheaper option (say under £50)? Edit...turns out there are loads of cheap options. I just had to phrase the search correctly!

    Sony New a6000 owner

    As per my thread on the UK Photography Show, I now have an a6000 with the 16-50 kit lens. I've also got an adapter to fit my old Russian Jupiter-8 50mm f2 lens so that should be fun! First couple of test shots below. Nothing fancy but the 16-50 gets closer than I thought it would, and seems...

    Random thoughts from The Photography Show 2017

    I went along to Birmingham on Sunday to have a good look at all the cameras I haven't been able to try out. My main aim was to find a smallish camera with a largeish sensor :) My main criteria were: clarity of viewfinder and display; build quality; ease of accessing controls; weight and comfort...
