Are you a DSLR shooter and do you own a super zoom lens? If you can answer yes to that double-question, then you’ve probably already heard about “lens creep”, or perhaps you’ve experienced it yourself, on your own lens(es), maybe even quite often. If you answered “no” to the double-question, but you’re considering buying a […]

Tamron 18-270mm PZD review – well, kinda, it’s just my impressions!

The thing about opinions is that they change from time to time. Just one year ago, I was on about “lens quality” and “pixel sharpness” etc., I was shooting with expensive, good quality glass on my D7000. I even published a blog post comparing the expensive Nikon 24-120mm F4 VR lens with the cheaper superzoom […]

I snapped this photo of Empire State Building on my recent trip to New York. I was on one of the tourist cruises and on my way back from Liberty Island when I decided to rack out my new Sigma 18-250mm OS HSM lens to the full 250mm to fill the frame as much as […]

Last year I reviewed the Nikon 24-70mm lens thermo cup, which I think was pretty cool (and I still use it sometimes when I’m out and about). This time I got something even better to review;  a Nikon 70-200mm thermos lens bottle from LensMug.net, a 1:1 model of the real Nikon 70-200mm f2.8 lens. Specifications: […]

Thumbnail image for Photo(s) of the week: Snow & Golden Sunset

Last week’s sunset photo of the week kinda sucked, so this week I’m giving you two photos (mainly because I couldn’t decide which one I like the most). I spent like 4 hours walking around in -8*C degrees (17*F) shooting with the Nikon D7000, which by the way, did quite well. Over 200 photos during […]

Let’s be honest, this shot isn’t going to win any prizes, I know that 🙂 Why publish this shot as photo of the week, you’re wondering? Well, I’ve headed up north to where my family lives to spend Christmas and there’s snow and cold here. I like how it looks outside, so bright and white […]

I forgot to put this one up yesterday, so even though I’m posting it this week it’s actually a picture for last week 🙂 Anyway – time’s not important. I didn’t get to shoot much last week but this is probably the one I like the most. I’m a complete newbiew when it comes to […]

Thumbnail image for Video: Comparing autofocus motor noise on camera lenses

One of the reasons I picked the Sigma 70-200/2.8 HSM II over Tamron’s 70-200/2.8 was because of the faster – and quieter autofocus motor – in the Sigma, so I decided to throw together a quick video to demonstrate the differences in autofocus motor noise on the following lenses: Sigma 70-200/2.8 HSM II Nikkor 18-200mm […]

Christmas is closing in on us, but according to the stores and malls it kinda looks like it’s Christmas already. It’s amazing how they manage to make everything look Christmassy sooner and sooner almost every year. Anywho, what’s a tech blog without a top 10 list of some of the greatest gadgets that most of […]
