Lumix G9 in Kenya
Review of the new Lumix after field testing for two weeks on safari, chasing big game and small.
My Other Birding Lens
Panasonic Leica DG Elmarit 200mm f/2.8 – Long term review of this superb telephoto prime. How does it stand up to the 100-400mm options and how much better is the image quality?

Some of the best game drives in Kenya are not actually about Lions and Leopards, but the very small creatures that bounce about between trees and shrubs. It was the bird life in Kenya that really took my breath away on my two week safari in Kenya.
X-M1 = Fujilove
Why I love the Fujifilm X-M1 and those peachy little X Mount lenses. For those times when smaller is smarter.
Soft Focus and Fine
Shallow depth of field is a powerful technique to have in your creative tool kit. It’s not just about funky portraits either, it’s good for almost every genre of photography.
Nikon 1 (Point Zero)
Nikon have joined the rush to release a mirrorless camera system with interchangeable lenses. DSLR owners won't be overly excited, or worried.
Review: Lumix GM1
I loved the GX7 released by Lumix last year, and recently I got a closer look at the teeny little brother GM1. It's so small it's crazy, but in a good way.
