While strolling through Midtown Manhattan with my family over the weekend, we stopped for a few minutes at the courtyard of the Stephen A. Schwarzman building, the main branch of the New York Public Library. It was one of those moments during the golden hour in which the light was hitting the architecture just right, and I’d wished I’d had my camera with me. This library never stood out to me as...

After months of running around with nothing but mirrorless and rangefinder cameras, the first thing that came to mind when I picked up the new Pentax flagship DSLR was, “Geeeeeez this puppy’s heavy…” The Pentax K-1 is, indeed, a heavy camera, especially when paired with an...

There is one thing that the Tamron 18-400mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD does better than any other lens on the market, and that is offer a seriously impressive zoom range in a relatively compact form factor. I found it hard not to love and respect the lens for this feature alone because,...

I’ve made my peace with this and have learned to work within a milieu of cameras and materials that have been on the shelves for decades. However, when Bergger recently released...

Considering how accurate your camera’s light meter is, selling a light meter to a photographer sounds as weaselly as selling ice cubes to an Inuit or Yupik person. In terms of accuracy, the new Sekonic Speedmaster L-858D-U Light Meter can calculate ambient and flash exposures to...

If you’re into wider-aperture wide-angle lenses that deliver ridiculously sharp image files (as I am) you’re precisely the person Sigma had in its crosshairs when the company whipped up its latest high-performance hotties—the Sigma 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM ART and...

Our lives are marked by firsts. First love, first car, first marriage, first kid, first heartbreak, and first camera. For many photographers of my generation, earlier generations, and younger generations, there are legions who can say that their first “real camera” was the Pentax K1000.

Rumors of the point-and-shoot’s demise have been greatly exaggerated. If anything, the point-and-shoot has become an even more capable tool for photographers since it has decided to go a bit upmarket in features and design. Even I was caught off guard by this mini-comeback of the pocket camera, but I...
