Yashica vs Nikon

My Yashica Electro 35 GSN has a 45mm f/1.7 lens which makes for a comparison with my Nikon D300s with a 30mm f/1.4. My DSLR has an APC sensor which with the 1.5 crop factor makes the 30mm equivalent to… Continue Reading →

Golden Gate Bridge from Alcatraz

This was taken with my Sigma 30mm f/1.4 lens with a circular polarizer from Alcatraz Island. Not too shabby. Except for cropping and straightening it out (I can’t quite get the horizon right holding the camera by hand) I hardly made any changes… Continue Reading →

Nikon GP-1

Sometimes you just like to know where you were when you took the photo. Luckily there are many options available for a DSLR and I went with the default Nikon solution. Last week on a whim I ordered a Nikon… Continue Reading →

Nikon 50mm f/1.4G samples

I’ve been playing with my new 50mm. If you liked the f/1.8D version, then you’ll have no complaints with this f/1.4.G new model. It’s a fun lens and as long as you can move around, you’ll get good shots. Here’s… Continue Reading →

Today was a miserable day weather-wise but had one good thing going for it. The next town over had a model train show and the highlight was a N gauge train layout. It was a fun display and I took… Continue Reading →

More off camera flash

In September I fooled around with the off camera flash. Since then I have not really taken advantage of it so yesterday I intentionally used it like crazy. The Nikon family of cameras from the D80 and up support off… Continue Reading →

DPReview’s Canon 7D review

I purchased my Nikon D300s for a simple reason: I was sold on the D300 and I’m a stickler for getting the current model. I’ve been very satisfied with it. Now Canon has come out with the 7D which lines… Continue Reading →

Off camera flash

I’m playing with my new camera and got to a feature that does not exist on my D60: off camera flash. It’s easy to set up the D300s to use the built in flash solely for commander mode. On my… Continue Reading →

The Nikon D300s came in

So after months of waiting, I finally got a Nikon D300s with the updated 18-200mm VR lens. I was originally planning on getting a Nikon D90 which would have been a fine upgrade from my existing D60.  But Lily intervened… Continue Reading →
