High End​​ APS-C Sony E Mount Lenses Are Missing For A Good Reason

Whenever I see fans complain about anything, I try to look at things from the brand’s position. Game of Thrones fans lashed out at the writers for what they consider the worst season. Somehow I feel the fans are madder at a show that’s ending, rather than at a weak performance in the writers’ department. […]

Shooting With The Worst E Mount Lens: The Sony E 16mm f/2.8

This is the Sony E 16mm f/2.8, one of the first lenses made for the E Mount system. It was released in 2010, a time Sony clearly wasn’t considering creating professional mirrorless cameras.

The Samyang 45mm f/1.8 FE is a bit confusing

Samyang’s next lens for Sony E Mount is a 45mm f/1.8. With Sony already offering a 50mm f/1.8 for $250, the Samyang 45mm is a bit confusing. So far Samyang impressed photographers with its decent alternatives. The Sony-Zeiss 35mm f/2.8, 35mm f/1.4, and 50mm f/1.4 are a bunch of expensive primes. For a fraction of […]

The G90 is Panasonic’s answer to the $900 question

There’s been a lot of excitement about Sony’s and Fujifilm’s latest two cameras. Although the a6400 and the X-T30 look different, they are quite similar. APS-C sensors, 4K recording, great autofocus and a $900 price tag (body only) to name a few. If you want to buy a camera at this price point, your mission […]

The Mac mini would be my best choice out of the current Apple lineup

Who would have thought the cheapest and simplest Mac would be the choice for the next computer? Starting a couple of days ago, I am one of those people. Here’s why. I am writing this article using the excellent keyboard of a mid-2012 13″ MacBook Pro. Normally I use the laptop as a desktop. It’s […]

Getting Into Photography (Part I)

Photography has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. What you see above is a Zenit 11. It’s a tank of a camera. Soviet-made, heavy, very cold in the winter, the Zenit 11 is what you would find in socialist Romania. It’s what my father used for many years […]

Man With A Camera Has Logged In

I thought long and hard about getting a domain for writing in English. I’ve been throwing words at my Romanian blog for more than 9 years. As I became more and more passionate about photography, I realized writing in English was the next logical step in getting my ideas to as many people as possible. […]
