After spending a couple years with Android smartphones, I jumped back over to Apple with the new iPhone 6. While I prefer the Android OS, I won’t really miss it because I’m still using it (lovin’ my Nexus tablet). Can’t imagine missing out on that sweet looking Android Lollipop update, so yeah, I’m in both camps […]Read More The iPhone 6 Camera
I’ve been using the Canon G1 X Mark II as my primary grab and go digital camera for the last few months. My initial impressions were already pretty favorable, and I’m happy to say that it’s grown on me even more now that I’ve been shooting with it for a while. It probably won’t dethrone my all […]Read More Shooting With The Canon G1 X Mark II

They removed the camera’s glass and built an M-Mount lens around it, complete with aperture control, focus tab, and a distance scale. […]Read More Weird Lens. Replichrome.
Spent some time behind Sony’s hot new RX100 Mark II over the last couple of days. I’m still waiting on RAW support so I can really see what these files have to offer, but even the JPEG files from the camera that I’m posting here look pretty good to me. For a camera that easily […]Read More Around Town With The Sony RX100 II
