Choosing a Camera

 

In this video, I discuss choosing a camera, not based on marketing, or what looks good, but as a tool. What do you want to do with this tool? Do you want to throw endless money upgrading constantly because you can, or worse, just because you are made to feel that you should? Continue reading

The Inverse Square Law

Sigma 17 – 50 f/2.8 OS

There are not many standard zoom options for DX, there is the Nikon 17-55 f/2.8 which is beautiful, but big, heavy and expensive (plus on stabilisation), or the Tamron which is not in the same league, but the Sigma is superb, great IQ, and Optical Stabilisation.

35mm Photography and the Nikon F3

The iconic Nikon F3, the first 'Designer' Camera by Nikon. This was and remains a brilliant film photography tool. I have one and absolutely love it. If you have any interest in film photography, these are great value now and they can use any Nikon F mount lenses, excluding the latest G versions.
