Pelican repair – my new project

Someone offered me a relatively well used Pelican 1550 which I’ve decided to take on as a project. I’ve been wanting a pelican case but the intended purpose is largely as a storage case for all my camera gear to go into when not in use so buying a new

Sony vs Fujifilm Part 6 – Sony needs to create more Fujicrons in their lineup

Fujifilm is quite popular as a travel system and there is a good reason for it and it isn’t necessarily APS-C. Fujifilm introduced a compact set of lenses, affectionately called Fujicrons by the users, named after the Leica Summicron. Instead of putting out lenses with wide open apertures of 1.4

Creative Melbourne Photoshoot

The era of the fanboys – are sony fanboys the worst?

You have to love the internet, it’s an incredible place where you find all sorts of people….and the fanboys. Lots of fanboys. Yes, they love to hide around every corner justifying every issue their technology may have on the basis that the average consumer is either wrong, or the company

From Fujifilm to Sony – How my glass changed

Glass is glass, or at least that’s what you normally think. To a large degree, you would expect the focal lengths to at least stay static, but that’s not always the case has my recent move from Fujifilm to Sony shows. There are the obvious items, like the availability of
