Thumbnail image for 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 […]

Thumbnail image for Fuji X100: Write speeds on SD cards

I love my new Fuji X100 and my I’m quite sure my Nikon D7000 is jealous (though it probably wouldn’t admit it…). If you haven’t already, you should read my Fuji Finepix X100 first impressions. But this article is not about praising the X100, it’s about how fast/slow the X100 writes to SD cards. Currently, […]

Thumbnail image for Photo of the week: Lake in Denmark with reflections

I shot this photo way back but I didn’t really like it until I started playing around with it in post-processing lately, to bring out the colors even more – this was the final edit that I decided I liked the most, it was also cropped a little to get rid of some of the […]

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) […]

Thumbnail image for Photo of the week: Empire State Building

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 […]

It’s time for another Photo of the Week and this time I’m going to show one reason why it’s a good idea to always use a lens hood on your lens for extra protection… This was shot with a wide angle, Tokina 12-24mm, a really great lens for the price, I think. And yes, the […]

Review: Kata “Reflex-C” Camera Strap

Thumbnail image for Review: Kata “Reflex-C” Camera Strap

You’d be surprised how hard it is to review a camera strap. I mean, it’s a strap. It holds your camera. What else is there? Actually, there’s more to it than that, and if you’re still shooting with your branded original camera strap, I’ll let you in on a secret: It sucks and it was […]

Photo of the week: Happy Valentines Day

Thumbnail image for Photo of the week: Happy Valentines Day

I don’t “celebrate” Valentines Day at all. I don’t see the point of giving flowers on a day where it’s expected. I much rather give flowers unexpected and bring real happiness out, rather than pleasing an expectation. But that doesn’t mean I can’t photograph Valentines-related stuff, such as these balloons which I caught on the […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Video: Comparing autofocus motor noise on camera lenses

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 […]

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 […]

Thumbnail image for Amazon lowers Nikon D7000 price for UK

Amazon UK just lowered the price on Nikon D7000 (body only) from £1,099 to £972. If you already pre-ordered at the old price, I assume Amazon will just charge your creditcard less or issue a refund automatically. If you haven’t pre-ordered yet, Amazon expects it to ship on October 29th, though there’s no mention of […]

A few days ago we looked into five reasons to replace your Nikon D5000 with the new Nikon D7000 – today it’s time to look into five reasons not to replace your D5000. Let me be honest, it was a lot tougher for me to find “don’t do it”-reasons than to find “do it”-reasons. If […]

Thumbnail image for 5 reasons to replace your Nikon D5000 with the new D7000

The new Nikon D7000 annonced a month ago is a very interesting looking camera for enthusiasts photographers and probably also newcomers to DSLR in general. But with a price tag of $1,199 at Amazon US and £1,029 at Amazon UK (body only), is it worth upgrading to Nikon D7000 if you, like me, already own […]

I’m still very much enjoying my Nikon D5000 which I purchased in November 2009 as being the first DSLR camera I ever owned. But it does have a few flaws (depending on the user and the user’s need), for me they are: No auto-focus in live view video recording mode, meaning you have to manual […]

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 […]
