Yongnuo to release the YN450M – A Micro Four Thirds version of their Android-powered mirrorless camera

Yongnuo’s YN450 was first teased at the end of 2018 and the specs were released a little while later. It was an odd, but interesting camera. An Android-powered mirrorless camera with a Micro Four Thirds sensor but, strangely, a Canon EF lens mount.

Can you shoot effective portraits with a wide-angle lens? Well, yes, you can

Ultra-wide-angle lenses are typically associated with portrait photography. In fact, most people will specifically avoid them for portraits, casting them out as “useless”. But this video, part of a series called The Focal Length Challenge by Becki and Chris, looks at how we can take advantage of an ultra-wide 16mm lens in order to shoot […] The post Can you shoot effective portraits with a wide-angle lens?

How well does Fujifilm’s Acros-R film simulation compare to real 35mm Fuji Acros 100II film?

I shoot about 50% film and 50% digital these days. For digital, I shoot with the Fujifilm X series cameras and lenses. Fujifilm cameras appealed to me several years ago because of the retro styling and film camera like controls for shutter speed, ISO and aperture. I also loved the ability to use Fujifilm film […] The post How well does Fujifilm’s Acros-R film simulation compare to real 35mm Fuji Acros 100II film? appeared first on DIY Photography.

A Tale of Two 24-70’s: Nikkor S and G

First, a little backstory to this piece… For much of my young career, I shot Canon. Be it the 1D, 1D2, 1DS, 1D3, 1DS2 and 1DS3, let’s just say I had a thing for the ergonomics of that chassis. In every camera I would replace the focusing screen with the cross-style manual focusing option and […] The post A Tale of Two 24-70’s: Nikkor S and G appeared first on DIY Photography.

Nope, this device from Vecnos doesn’t wipe your memories – It captures them in 360°

A new consumer-grade 360° camera is coming to the market soon from Vecnos, a new startup spun out of Ricoh.

Irix has finally announced the 45mm f/1.4 they first showed off in 2016

We first discovered the Irix 45mm f/1.4 way back at Photokina 2016. It was just a lowly prototype hidden under a glass box back then. It seemed to have been largely ignored by most people wandering past the Irix booth at the show, but we took the time to have a chat with them about it.

How to “scan” your film shots with the Nikon ES-2 digitizer and your camera

The Nikon ES-2 Film Digitizing Adapter was announced way back in August 2017, along with the Nikon D850. It looks like somebody finally bought the $140 plastic tube, though, because a sort-of review and how-to has been posted to DPReview. The D850 came with a feature specifically designed for use with the ES-2, and so […] The post How to “scan” your film shots with the Nikon ES-2 digitizer and your camera appeared first on DIY Photography.

Celebrate MeeB-leap Day weekend with these great synth vids – or make your own

One extra day in the calendar is clearly a reason to spend one extra day playing with synths and making and sharing music. So we’ve decided to get MeeBlip in on that. We’ve got synths and accessories in stock in our MeeBlip store now. But we also wanted to reach out to all of you who have one of the instruments we’ve made and hear (and see, if you want) what you’re making.

The milky way, a medium format camera and a f/4 lens – this is how it went

For several years I have believed that shooting with a medium format camera at high iso would yield a terrible result.
