35mm Mirrorless Lens Shootout – Sony, Fuji, Zeiss, and Olympus – Which is the best 35mm lens?

In this video, I’ll be doing a shootout of 9 different mirrorless lenses with a 35mm (or equivalent focal length). The goal is to determine which one has the nicest rendering. I test for up close shots which I really like doing, bokeh quality, and sharpness/detail from a distance. https://youtu.be/M8vNsDi_atA Here’s the following lenses and […]

RNI All Films 4 – Lite for Capture One Pro Review

Film. Glorious film. Even though I never really shot with film, there’s undeniably a certain aesthetic that analog provided. Over the years, I’ve used DxO Film, Alien Skin Exposure, VSCO Film presets for Lightroom, Mastin Labs, and VSCO for iOS. With each of them, I found issues: DxO Film – Quite a nice product when […]

Goodbye Adobe aka Lightroom Sucks

It’s really been years since Adobe has really made any substantial updates to Lightroom. More importantly, their image processing algorithms aren’t up to par with a lot of their competitors. Also, their Lightroom software tends to bog down even the fastest machines. I’ve already been using competing video editing suites to Adobe for years due […]

Zeiss Loxia 21mm f/2.8 Review – Again. This time on a Sony a7R III

Well, it’s been over a year and a half since I’ve owned and reviewed the Loxia 21mm, and since I’m back to it (purchased it new) with an a7R III, I figured it’s a good time to review my opinion of it. This time around, I’m coming from a Leica M system. Over on Leica, […]

Zeiss Batis 18mm f2.8 Video Autofocus Test on the Sony a7R III and First Images

The Sony a7R III is quickly becoming my favorite camera of all time. Stills wise, the image quality is top shelf. Video is something that I am just starting to play around with, and I realized very quickly, that I needed an autofocus lens for video (at least for vlogging and casual stuff). I found […]

ZEISS Loxia 85mm f/2.4 Lens Review on the Sony a7R III

Since I’m coming from a Leica system, I previously reviewed and absolutely love the Leica 75mm f/2 APO lens. Unfortunately, the 75mm APO won’t perform the same on a Sony as it does on a Leica so, the Loxia is the closest option.┬áThe Loxia 85mm is the closest thing to it in terms of focal […]

Zeiss Loxia 35mm f/2 Review (Update) – This time on the Sony a7R III

It’s been a couple of years since I’ve owned this lens and reviewed it last. Initially, I liked the lens but wasn’t all that enamored with it. Well, times and opinions change. I bought this lens again (new) after coming back to Sony and Zeiss. I now have a new found appreciation for Zeiss Loxia […]

Laowa 15mm f/2 Initial Impressions on the Sony a7R III

In my other recent articles, I’ve been singing the praises of the Zeiss Loxia Lenses. However, the widest Loxia lens is 21mm. Sometimes, you just want wider. I’ve heard good things about the Laowa 15mm, so I decided to get one. Here’s my initial unboxing and impressions of the lens: https://youtu.be/2uKU2q8WYWM After using it for […]
