Make The Custom Dial Work For You
One of the most powerful features on any Lumix G or S series camera is the custom dial. C1 and beyond. This is a short primer to put you in control of the custom settings, and start working your own baseline towards better captures.
In the space of a fortnight I've had the same story told to me by two different people, both of whom are very talented with a camera. They went to a workshop to learn new skills and came away with less control over their camera and creativity. They were forced to shoot fully manual and ended up moving away from their best creativity instead of towards it.
Some of the fundamental issues that come up often when travellers ask me for help. What is a RAW file, what is ISO, why should I care about sensor size and how to control exposure metering.
Review: Nikon Df
I took the Nikon Df on a long journey through Myanmar, my companion for captures along dusty roads through far flung villages. This is a camera designed for image quality more than anything else.

The Absolute Best Lens in Nepal
Very rarely a new lens comes along that changes how I think about photography. This is one of those lenses. My priority for glass is always quality over convenience, but this time you get enough of both to make it a hard one to walk past. The newly released "DG Vario-Summilux 10-25mm f/1.7 ASPH" by Panasonic+Leica is not only a great lens for MFT systems, but may well be good enough to tempt full frame owners to look seriously at adopting the smaller mirrorless format of the Lumix G series.
Sigma 105mm F2.8 DG DN Macro Art
I spent a week in the desert looking for macro level inspiration, and this lens did not disappoint. Excellent value, remarkable optics and a dreamy bokeh make this a uniquely creative lens for your kit.
Rokinon 14mm DS T3.1 CineLens
A seriously affordable astro photography lens to help you chase stars, auroras and ultra wide landscapes.
