Gutty Nikon G to Canon EOS RF Adapter Review and Sample Portraits

Just a quick and short post.  I ordered a Gutty Nikon G lens to Canon RF adapter the other day from Amazon.  It’s pretty good for less than $20!  The build quality is very sturdy and feels much more expensive than the low price. In the past ten+ years I’ve used several mechanical D lens […]

Road Trip – New Orleans

Saturday December 7, 2019 So we got up early on Saturday and drove to New Orleans, which is about 3 hours from Pensacola. On the way off I-10 is this humongous gas station called Buc-Cee’s!  Their little beaver mascot is on everything. My breakfast, Naked Mango juice and chicken salad in a croissant, which was […]

Road Trip – Pensacola

Thursday December 5, 2019 Late Autumn mornings in Georgia are somewhat brisk with pretty, but short sunrises.  This is from my backyard. We left around 8:30am Atlanta time. Both the NCR and CODA buildings are quite nice, I’m sure they’ll film some movies there one day. We made it to Pensacola, FL around 3:30 our […]

Canon EOS RP Follow Up Review

So I’ve had the Canon EOS RP for 9 months now.  I think that’s enough time to give a pretty good opinion on the strengths and weaknesses of this camera.  I’ve found that you really have to “live” with a camera or lens combo for a good long time to figure out what it’s best […]

Canon EOS RP Portraits

Here are some portraits with the Canon EOS RP in different situations.  Right now, it’s not an A camera for me.  It’s more of a third option.  For video it’s really nice though.  Again, I don’t have any native RF glass yet, I have to use the older EF lenses via the adapter.  While many […]

Imaging USA Expo 2019 Atlanta and Canon EOS R Sample Raws

The last Imaging USA Expo that I attended was in 2013(!).  Technology has really changed since then: 3 axis gimbals hadn’t even hit the market yet, and Sony was still a relatively minor player in the world of still cameras.  My how things have changed!  I went hoping that Nikon had a booth so I […]

Nikon 105mm 1.4E Review

Nikon 105mm 1.4E Review So I finally added the Nikon 105mm 1.4 to my portrait kit.  I’d been using the Nikon 85mm 1.4D and 105mm 2.8 Micro VR for years now, but decided that this modern lens (introduced in summer 2016) is another magical lens in the Nikkor lineup.  After a few test shoots with […]

Springtime on Arabia Mountain

Lovely day for a walk and picnic on Arabia Mountain.  This time of year the diamorpha smallii are in bloom.  These tough and fleshy plants with the red leaves grow in the shallow sandy soil.  In order to sound smart, I copied that from the information sign that you pass on the way up the […]
