Nikon Z7 Hands-On and Opinion

I tried out Nikon’s first full-frame mirrorless camera, the Z7. With advanced cameras like this it’s always a challenge including even just a decent percentage of relevant features, but I gave it a go! I had the kit lens, 35mm f1.8s, and the FTZ adapter with a Nikon 50mm f1.4g to try the camera with. This is the more advanced and expensive Z camera with 45.7 megapixels. It has a … Continue reading

Canon EF-M 32mm f1.4 STM Lens | First Look & Hands-On Tests

I completely switched to the Canon EF-M system for now and wanted a “normal” 50mm equivalent lens. Canon just so happened to release this 32mm f1.4 lens!

Of course they could make a camera with shorter sides, but this shows the potential size difference if everything besides the mount diameters were the same design. Edit: … Continue reading

Solo hybrid-shooter’s camera? Not the Nikon Z and Canon EOS R…

Now that a specification sheet has been leaked for the Canon EOS R full-frame mirrorless camera we see more about the camera in general. It’s missing some information, likely intentionally removed for whatever reason. The camera rumor game is fun, but also irritating at times. Today I’m talking about a hypothetical camera I’m interested in transitioning to as my primary still photo camera, yet one that has solid video features … Continue reading
