My Outlook On 2017


innovaeditor/assets/Blog/OD100003c.JPG

It has been an interesting 2016 for all mirrorless systems ranging from Sony to Fujifilm to Olympus and Panasonic. Canon have come out with their latest model the M5 but a little late in my opinion. They have a lot of ground to make up over the established manufacturers and whether they’ll catch up is anyone's guess, but I won’t be investing in that system any time soon. Nikon have lost the thread and haven’t ...

Sailing On The Italian West Coast With A Couple Of Panasonic GM5s


innovaeditor/assets/Blog/Amalfi/P1070118fr.jpg

You may have noticed a lack of posts in September, that’s because of a lack of time in the first half and a sailing holiday in the second. Yes, a sailing holiday. In all we were five guests on the boat and two crew members. Two crew were necessary because the five us hadn’t a clue about sailing, but that didn’t deter us from enjoying the trip. The boat was a 54 footer with 3 ...

Cornwall - The South West of England


innovaeditor/assets/MiscImages/Sony/P1010605fr.jpg

I’ve always wanted to go down to Cornwall, but never quite managed it. Don’t ask me why I want to go there but I suppose it’s to do with it’s history and the rugged coastline I’ve been hearing a lot about. The small harbours nestling among the ragged cliffs. Sounds great doesn’t it?

Well, a few weeks ago I had a chance to do just that and my wife and myself stayed in Cornwall for a ...

Polarizers (Circular and Linear)


innovaeditor/assets/MiscImages/EP120017fs.jpg

I think, together with ND filers, this is the only type of filter I now use with my digital cameras. It's the only filter that cannot be reproduced in post processing.

The polarizing filter (also known as a Pol filter) can actually do more than darken a blue sky. It can take away reflections from windows or dampen reflections from wet leaves. It also lengthens your shutter speed by up to 2 stops. Those are things ...

Photographer's Block


innovaeditor/assets/MiscImages/P5160048.jpg

I think photographers sometimes hit a spot at some stage where nothing seems to go right and the juices don't seem to flow. I suppose it's something similar to a writer's block where they sit in front of a blank page (or screen nowadays) and they just can't start writing. Or, they start writing knowing in their hearts it's total rubbish. It could be because of a lack of ideas, inspiration, conviction or even boredom.

It ...

Micro Four-Thirds Musings


innovaeditor/assets/MiscImages/P1000677sf.jpg

A lot of users swear by full frame cameras reasoning that depth of field can be mastered best with this format. True, DOF can be better achieved with this format but it all depends what you shoot. Landscape photographers try to get MORE DOF rather than less. So that argument doesn't hold up all of the time. It also doesn't mean that it's impossible to achieve a shallow DOF with other formats. I personally use ...

Adapters - Follow-up Post


innovaeditor/assets/General/XT111036fr.jpg

 

My last post was regarding adapters for using Canon EF lenses on Sony E-mount and M43 systems. Having tested a few lenses I felt I could post again with some more information with a few images to show the results of using those lenses on the Sony E-mount.

Firstly, the Commlite adapter. I've only tested the Canon 40 f2.8 STM lens on a Sony E-mount camera as of this post so I'll probably test ...

Adapters for EF to E and m4/3 Mount Cameras

Adapters for EF to E and m4/3 Mount Cameras

(Plus some more ramblings)

 

The reason for my purchase of the Sony Alpha Axx cameras when they first came out was to have an FF sensor (a very good sensor) in a small and light package. Since my first purchase I must admit that GAS got the better of me and now I have a few of these little marvels. Each has it's own use ...

Fanboy...ism


Fanboy. It's a bit of a derogatory term for someone defending something to the bitter end.

Some "Post" Thoughts


After finishing my first real post about some manual lenses ont he Sony A7r, I had a little break and thought about that actual post I did.

 

My admiration is growing for those bloggers that manage to get one or more posts out each day. It took me some time to get everything posted as I wanted, and I'm not taliking about hours. It took me a couple of days to get it done. ...

Initial Blog Post


Some of you may have noticed that this is a new section I've been thinking about for some time. I already have a photoblog going so why the normal blog? Well, I find the photoblog a bit restrictive for some subjects that I would like to post about and let's face it, a photoblog is just that, somewhere to post your images and nothing more.

This blog will most definately not be a daily thing but ...
