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

Sigma 35mm f/1.2 DG DN ART Review

In 2014, Sigma said the size of the Sony mount made it difficult to make fast glass for Sony. In 2019 they released an amazing piece of fast glass in the form of the Sigma 35mm f/1.2 DG DN ART. It’s also one of the first Sigma lenses to be

Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 vs Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 – Initial thoughts

I’ll be producing a detailed review of the Sigma 24-70mm DG DN ART but I thought I’d put together some initial thoughts between the two. So how do the Sigma 24-70mm and Tamron 28-75mm differ? The focal length – that’s pretty obvious Construction – It’s difficult to put these two

New firmware – no coloured AF points. Bad Sony!

A new firmware has arrived for the A7iii and A7riii and as usual, Sony like most camera manufacturers have proved that they are bottom feeders when it comes to customer service. The single most requested feature for the A7iii and the A7Riii is the ability to change the colour of

Dear Sony Users – It’s not Apple’s fault you can’t update your camera

Nearly a decade ago, Apple starting transitioning to 64-bit processors. The last

Our extreme focus on image quality over purpose

The A7Riv has been released and on paper, the specs look amazing. but there is one glaring shortfall I am utterly confused as to why Sony missed, particularly with a camera with this megapixel count. Small / medium raw There will be usual Sony apologists who try to defend the

Sony hurting the industry with innovation?

For those who missed it, Petapixel posted a rediculous opinion piece that Sony was hurting the industry by innovating and cycling their cameras too quickly. If you haven’t read it, here it is: Is Sony’s Pace of Innovation Actually Hurting the Photo Industry? The gist of the article is that

Fujifilm ranks Sony last on mounts

Apparently Fujifilm released their mount ranking system and Sony is ranked well in APSC but bottom in full frame. It’s an interesting tactic from Fujifilm, but not a clever one as far as I am concerned. I always taken notice when people who are lagging in the technology race start

Sony Fanboys, the worst kind?

I previous wrote about the Sony fanboys being the worst, this is a follow on rant. Understand, as a Sony user, this is the one thing that frustrates me, and there isn’t that much to complain about with Sony. As time goes on, I can’t help feeling Sony has become
