Leica Summicron-SL 50mm f/2 ASPH
Another great fast 50mm prime for the L-mount, this time with a seriously impressive build quality that we have come to expect from Leica.
Viltrox EF-L Pro - Quick Review
For extra stability and good compatibility, this EF-L adaptor plays nicely with the latest LUMIX bodies and older EF lenses.
The SL2-S is a very modern yet practical 24MP camera that enjoys a touch of Leica flare. As my first chance to shoot with a Leica body in over a decade, this one left a very positive impression.
EF to L-Mount Adaptor by Fotodiox
This is an alternative to the Sigma MC21 that lets you mount Canon EF lenses onto your new Lumix S-series bodies such as the S1R and S1H. The short version of this review is that they work just fine for AF lenses and represents excellent value.
Coman Hussar TSC10A20
Teeny tiny super compact mini-tripod for table top mounting, yet fully featured and super strong. Just 420g but packed with full articulation and very sturdy design. Lots of hidden features make this a favie for me.
New Life for EF Lenses
Not only does the AF system on the LUMIX S5II deliver amazing results for native L-mount lenses, but the performance of EF lenses is exceptional to the point of giving Canon owners a legitimate upgrade path at an affordable price.
Sigma 14-24mm F2.8 - Long Term Review
This is a hard lens to leave at home. It delivers quality and sharpness for landscapes and the night sky, plus has a neat party trick with rear pocket for ND filters. Worthy companion to any full-frame mirrorless camera. (Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DG DN)
The Best 35mm Lens for My LUMIX
If you appreciate the value of a 35mm prime lens, you’ll also appreciate that there are a good many 35mm designs to choose from now. Here are my favourite two 35mm lenses from Panasonic and Sigma, both for full-frame L-Mount bodies, and why they appeal to such wildly different photographic styles.
Sonys Translucent Future
Is the SLT concept really going to change digital photography forever, or will it be another evolutionary dead end from Japan's top tech innovator?
Tamron 20-40mm F2.8 Di III VXD A062
I took this lens to Nepal and Bhutan for a few months in late 2023. If you're interested in more than just tech specs, and what it's like to work with this lens for an extended time then you've come to the right place.
Ulanzi Travel Tripod Review
A lot of comparisons between the Ulanzi Zero Y Lightweight Travel Tripod and the Peak Design Travel Tripod focus on price and weight. But the Ulanzi model lacks the stability and rigor of the Peak Design original.
Sony ZV-E1 And Android
If you're having trouble getting the "Creators' App" on your Android phone to connect to the Sony ZV-E1, you're not alone. Here's a very short post on what worked for me to finally get the app talking to the camera over Bluetooth.
