January 23, 2017 Canon EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM Review

  New EF-M mount lenses have been fairly few and fair between, but 2016 saw two very solid lenses released: the EF-M 28mm f/3.5 Macro IS STM lens (my review here)  and this lens, the Canon EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM. The 18-150 STM is both similar and different to past EF-M zooms.  It is […]

January 20, 2017 Oben CT-3535 Carbon Fiber Tripod + BE-208T Ball Head Review

  When most most people enter into photography they tend to be more focused on the obvious; cameras and lenses. That’s as far as many go, but if you become more invested in photography there are a few essentials that become necessary. A good tripod is one of them. I’ve got several of them, but […]

January 16, 2017 Canon EOS M5 Review

Canon’s venture into mirrorless has had mixed success. The EOS M cameras have largely been critical flops despite having some unique strengths largely due to arriving with limited feature sets when compared to the competition. Canon has also really lagged in the key areas of autofocus, burst rate, and buffer size, reducing their mirrorless cameras […]

January 14, 2017 Picturing Arizona: A Photo Gallery of the Southwest

Picturing Arizona I live in Eastern Ontario, Canada.  You can see into the Province of Quebec across the Ottawa River from my house.  While it is white and cold out there at the moment, there are many times throughout the year where it is very green and very lush.  It’s a far cry from the […]

January 13, 2017 Cotton Carrier EV-1 Strapshot Camera Holster Review

  One of my favorite things to do as a photographer is hike in beautiful places and take pictures. I’ve carried camera gear in a wide variety of bags and with a number of different carry systems. The greatest challenge for active photographers like me is to have a safe way to carry my expensive […]

December 30, 2016 Peak Design Slide Summit Edition Review

I’ll freely confess to having a bit of hate (no love) relationship with the standard camera straps that come with new cameras.  I’ve purchased no less than six new cameras in the past four years, and you can find the strap for each of them still in the original box with the plastic still around […]

December 23, 2016 Sigma 12-24mm f/4 ART Review

  Sigma’s recent ART series has primarily been dominated by wide aperture primes along with a few unique, wide aperture zooms. The one exception previously has been the Sigma 24-105mm f/4 OS. The Sigma 12-24mm f/4 DG HSM ART lens take the series to a wider focal length than ever before and is one of the […]

December 20, 2016 Canon EF-M 18-150mm IS STM Image Gallery

New lenses for Canon’s mirrorless system have been somewhat few and far between, but the Canon EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM that launches with the new EOS M5 camera is the second this year (first being the rather excellent little 28mm f/3.5 Macro IS lens).  This lens provides a first party “all-in-one” zoom option with an […]
