I’ve been a happy user of Nikon’s 1st generation Nikkor 18-200mm VR f3.5-5.6 DX lens since I got it for my Nikon D5000 shortly after I purchased the D5000. However, I quickly learned that a fast prime was a must so I also purchased the Nikkor 35mm f1.8 AF-S, which is an amazing (and cheap) […]

Photo of the week: Flying Seagull (I think?)

Thumbnail image for Photo of the week: Flying Seagull (I think?)

For this photo of the week I decided to go with a lucky shot I captured the other day. I think it’s a seagull, but to be honest, I was never really good at recognizing animals, especially those I don’t see too often. I was walking along the waterfront with my Nikon D7000 in aperture […]

I think it’s been a few weeks since the last photo of the week, so I thought it was time to post another recent photograph. The photo below is the top of the local parish church here in Naxxar, Malta. The chuch itself was built some 400 years ago and it’s a stunning looking church. […]

Here’s another photo of the week where it’s all about being in the right place at the right time. I can’t remember the last time I saw a rainbow in Malta – in fact, I can’t remember the last time I saw a rainbow anywhere and I had a camera handy. Needless to say, I […]

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 […]

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 […]

This photo was actually shot Sunday, so depending on what part of the world you live in, Sunday is this week – but that’s a minor technicality. The point is, the photo I’ve decided for this week’s Photo of the Week, is this one… Chillin’ in the sea This one was shot at around 5pm […]

Hmm, a lens cup. How to review a lens cup. Well, it’s a cup. You can keep hot or cold drinks in it as well as drink from it. I guess that’s about it. But if you want more information… Canon lens cups have been around for quite some time now, though I doubt they […]

Thumbnail image for Nikon introduces a new mouth watering DSLR camera: D7000

Yesterday I was working myself to come up with reasons I do not need Nikons new 55-300mm VR lens. Today I got myself a much bigger task at hand because Nikon has introduced their new D7000 camera which has everything I miss about my current D5000. I can’t really cover everything about this camera in […]

I recently replaced my Lowepro SlingShot 350 AW camera and laptop bag with the Lowepro CompuTrekker AW bag, which for me, is a far better choice. If my SlingShot 350 didn’t break, I probably wouldn’t have replaced it with the CompuTrekker. But it did and I’m glad to have an ordinary backpack available, since it […]
