A little documentary work

My wife decided to do a tour of regional park reserves, and set about planning a 3 day, two night, bikepacking trip to visit them all. She set out this past weekend and I spent the time filming the endeavor in order to try my hand at making a mini-documentary. It’ll probably be a while […]

Playing with some Panasonic cameras

This weekend my good friend Wes started talking about looking at a mirrorless camera setup. As someone who’s gone through that transition before I was curious about what he was considering. He told me that he was looking at the Panisonice line, specifically the G7 vs the GX85. As luck would have it, I was […]

Need a larger f-stop

So this past weekend I shot some pictures at the Afton 50K trail race. Because I was running the 25K, I only had time to head down the trail about 15 minutes to catch the 50K runners as they started. Due to the early start time, this meant I was shooting in partial tree cover, […]

It was one of the iconic workhorse cameras of the 80s, along side my personal camera, the Minolta x-370. These were fully manual cameras that forced you to learn about […]

And the winner is…

After a few weeks of deliberation, countless hours reading reviews,  and multiple trips to the camera store for hands on-experience (3 times in one weekend alone), I made a choice. I decided to purchase the Sony a6000 with it’s standard kit lens. I went through a great deal of deliberation between the Olympus OM-D E-M10 […]

Hands on with some cameras

As I’ve talked about in a few recent posts, I’ve been contemplating a change from my old Pentax K100D DSLR to a newer camera, and was looking mainly down the mirrorless route. I’m still keeping my options open on sticking with a full DSLR, but I wanted to check out what mirrorless has to offer. […]
