Olympus Stylus Epic DLX

Okay, I like the new Olympus Stylus Epic DLX. The DLX portion has panorama and a quartz clock but aside from that it’s identical to the non-DLX version. I’m putting these into a set on my Flickr page, go take a look. For this photo I left the flash on […]

Waiting for my new toy

The film camera bug has hit me pretty hard. I’ve been using one of my Olympus Trip 35 cameras (see above taken last weekend) and have purchased an Olympus Stylus Epic DLX from someone on eBay. The new one is it’s way and should be here next week. You can […]

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 GP-1 for my camera. This GPS receiver plugs into my […]

A short photo walk

I took my Olympus Trip 35 on a short stroll this morning and had the film developed near work. I like the results and shot another roll around lunch time. It’s an easy camera to have on you and fits in my coat pocket pretty easily. It’s a little on […]

No Batteries Required

This started with my looking for a good compact digital camera with a viewfinder. As a result I bought a film compact camera that was manufactured in 1972. I prefer cameras with a viewfinder because I take better photos when I hold the camera close to my face (my arms […]

Roger Ebert still knows best

I saw this great video on Photography Bay. I’m constantly reminded that my negative opinion on filming with DSLRs is almost always demonstrated to be wrong. Here is another fine example. The editing, the soundtrack, and the shots are amazing. This video was captured with a Canon 7D. It’s not […]

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 some samples I took today. We ate at the Jade […]

Nikon 50mm f/1.4G

After using my brother’s Nikon 50mm f/1.8D lens for a few weeks, I broke down and picked up a new AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G lens. From all the reviews I’ve read, it’s an improvement over the older f/1.4D version being more sharper while still having a good DOF. Here are […]
