Trevor Jones of AstroBackyard recently got his hands on a niche camera that will be extremely interesting to astrophotographers… and just about nobody else: the Canon EOS Ra. In the video above, he takes it out for a test shoot to show off the two features that set this camera apart when it comes to […]
The trinity is now complete. Since the release of the Canon EOS R about a year ago, the mirrorless camera is my go-to tool for shoots. Not least because of its size and weight, as well as the amazing lenses (RF 28-70mm f/2, RF 50mm f/1.
Being in the photography game over 12 years has given me some fixed routines that are hard to break. Routines like focusing solely on prime lenses. In the last few years I’ve been carrying 20mm, 35mm, 85mm, and 200mm fixed focal length lenses on my camera bag while occasionally wondering if the grass looks greener […]
Newsflash: Nikon designs its own sensors. If you're just hearing about this for the first time, don't worry; you're most likely just one of many. Canon Watch was another (so you're in good company), leading to a blog post sharing some details about how Nikon exactly is involved in the making of its sensors.
For Canon and Nikon shooters looking to get a fast ultrawide, the choices in the past have been the Nikon 14-24mm f/2. 8, Canon 16-35mm f/2. 8, and Tamron 15-30mm f/2. 8 VC. Or, go with an f/4 lens and get the Canon 11-24mm or Sigma 12-24mm.

To Adobe or not to Adobe. That is the question many photographers are asking with the spate of new image processing programs vying to “kill Photoshop.” I tested more than ten contenders as alternatives to Adobe’s image processing software, evaluating them for the specialized task of editing demanding nightscape images taken under the Milky Way, […]
A couple weeks ago, I got a chance to run the Nikon D850 through its paces as a scanner. The “Negative Digitizer” feature, which can automatically flip negatives to positive got a lot of buzz as the camera was being released, and I was eager to try it out. I’ve been using digital cameras to […]
My name is Richard Haw, and I’m a photographer based in Tokyo, Japan. In this post, I’ll show you how scanning film works with the Nikon D850’s unique new “Negative Digitizer Mode.
We’ve seen how the upcoming Nikon D850 handles low light, but how does the new sensor perform in a studio shoot? This 4-minute AdoramaTV video with photographer Seth Miranda puts it to the test, shooting a model with special effects makeup.
