1. Olympus OM-D E-M1 MkII

    Comment
    Phew, that’s a mouthful – what on earth do all those letters and hyphens stand for? Anyway, the OM-D E-M1 MkI was a success and three years later Olympus have souped up the technology buttons to 11…(in Spinal Tap terminology) To throw a few figures out there, it’s got 25% more...
  2. Leica Q

    Comment
    Leica launch a new compact camera, but one that’s a proper Leica, not a Panasonic rebrand. You can always tell the difference from the extra zero added to the price tag on anything with a red dot. Simply, the Q is a 24mp full frame camera with built in EVF,...
  3. Pentax K-3 crazy mirror syndrome

    by
    Comment
    A recent article on the Steve Huff photography site by contributor Amy Medina told a worrisome tale of Pentaxian woe, with the new K-3 DLSR. The article describes the problems experienced with her original Pentax model and a replacement, sent by Pentax. She shares a video of both the complete...
  4. Fuji X-T1 Review

    by
    Comment
    The Huff, as he shall be known, is king of the “real world” reviews, not getting too bogged down in technical speak, colour charts or pixel peeping. He’s had a love/hate relationship with Fuji X cameras, liking the X100 and X100S cameras, but struggling with the responsiveness of the interchangeable...
  5. Olympus M.Zuiko 60mm Macro

    Comment
    It’s not often you read…if you read here at all, of an Olympus camera or lens – not too surprising since I’ve never even picked one up. I remember seeing the Olympus OM-D at the Focus Imaging show, but there was a long queue to actually pick the thing up....
  6. iRX1

    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...
  7. Leica Monochrom

    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...
  8. Daily Inspiration

    by
    Comment
    I’ve mentioned the Steve Huff site on many occasions, as its a great resource on the latest cameras, lenses, crazy comparisons to Leica’s etc, but he also has a Daily Inspiration section, which readers can post their images, reviews of gear they have or some just share an opinion or...
