    Today I went for a walk, not just as part of the usual exercise regime, but with my camera – one of them anyway. One of the by-products of being house bound for so long, and even now, feeling limited in my ability to get up and go out for...

    If you live in a world that is constantly slightly under or over exposed, where you stand like a chimp, hunched over in the midday sun straining to see a monochrome histogram that spikes to the left or right, maybe you need an incident light meter…and this being the 21st...

    Comment
    The art of engineering. Made in Germany. That’s the header that decorates the top of Leica’s new camera launch on the website. Ever since they teased its hard core red dot audience with the phrase, Mini M, the photographic net buzzed with anticipation of what Leica would bestow on the...

    At the Prescott Autumn Classic race meeting I tried an experiment…I used..say it in hushed tones…film! I had A Voigtlander Bessa R2 rangefinder film camera with Minolta M-Rokkor 40mm f2 lens, that I’d got for the NEX 5N camera that I had for a while. The Rokkor is a beautiful...

    Comment
    It’s official…the Sony RX1 is the best camera EVER! Well, within the parameters of a small, mirrorless, full-frame, fixed prime lens, non-Leica camera with a $5000 lens at least. Pretty good for an upstart electronics giant! This is of course according to the ever-enthused Steve Huff, who is currently being...

    Comment
    This is a marvellous video of Steve Huff opening a box with an $8000 dollar Leica Monochrom inside…with a free black and white print! Apparently the Monochrom files can look a tad flat and grey and that they need processing with Silver Efex to get the best. I’ve seen an...

    In May I posted about my dad (Gary Parker, Southport Photographic Club) being awarded CPAGB status, and my favourite photograph of the ten image set is currently the Image of the Week on the Lancashire and Cheshire Photographic Union’s website. You can view the website here. You can also view...

    Exclusive german uber-camera brand Leica has released new models at the Photokina show, including the renamed flagship model, ‘M’. They’ve dropped the numbering, and will now be called just M and it boasts a 24MP sensor, live view with focus peaking, and an adaptor to make it able to use...

    It’s been a while since I posted something from the weird and wonderful world of the Retronaut website, so here’s something that’s a twist on the celebrity photo…a celebrity taking a photo, or in some cases, simply posing with one…or three. I know James Dean was a keen photographer and...
  10. NEXt step

    Comment
    One of the attractions of the NEX 5N, was its size, its sensor size and flexibility for using some very tasty (manual) lenses to create a kind of techno-rangefinder camera. This is a rather alluring shot of NEX 5 and Leica M lens…of course, the even poorer man’s budget means...
