    on D810 Live View Split Screen

    Interesting stuff Tim. It was the Live View improvements that most interested me too. When I've used a D800 in the past I've always felt its LV function was a poor relation to my Canon 5D3's. The dual window feature is definitely of interest, I often use LV to check my DoF [...]

    Valerie, your work continues to grow and become more focused and expressive. You certainly do have a feel for the desert landscape! Best wishes to you. G Dan Mitchell

    on On Vision… Part 1

    Thank you David, absolutely fascinating - I think of you as a sort of photographer philosopher. I don't know if there is any other magazine focussing on landscape photography where you could read such stuff? Looking forward to the next part.

The 5DS and 5DSR

The recent announcement of the 5DS and the 5DSR have caused quite a kerfuffle, as is to be expected. What is quite surprising though is the number of people either writing the camera off, or announcing it to be the   [ read ]

36 Megapixels vs 6×7 Velvia

Over a year ago now we carried out various tests of medium format digital camera systems and film camera systems. The results, whilst interesting, didn’t tell us a whole lot about 35mm digital camera systems. Just after the D800 and   [ read ]

645Z Rolling Review

Pentax 645z

(This is not a technical review – that has already been done brilliantly elsewhere (here, here and here) This article is I hope the start of a rolling users review of the camera – from a landscape photographers perspective. No walls will be harmed   [ read ]

Hasselblad 40mm CFE

What sort of camera is the Sony A7r?

From the outset let me explain that this is not a conventional camera review. If that is what you are seeking then returning to the usual suspects (DP Review et al) will give satisfaction. This is unashamedly a partial, personal   [ read ]


Looking Backward to See Forward – Pentax 645D Re-evaluated

The Pentax 645D is a camera that sort of slid quietly onto the photographic stage, metaphorically speaking. First announced as a concept, there were numerous delays before it appeared in 2010 and then it didn’t really grab any headlines. Had   [ read ]

Linhof 3D Tripod Head Review

I have now had a Linhof 3D Micro tripod head for over two years. I had used the Manfrotto geared heads 410 and 405 for at least a decade before this, but had become frustrated with their vulnerability to minor   [ read ]


Mirex adapter for Canon EOS to Sony ‘E’ Mount

Our recent article on the Mirex adapters from Germany sparked a lot of interest with the opportunity to mount medium format lenses on Nikon or Canon SLR cameras. In a little advertised move (you wont find it on the Mirex   [ read ]


Graduated Filters in the Digital Age

Like many landscape photographers coming from a film background the use of graduated ND filters was second nature and the only way to shoot transparency film. To squash a dynamic range involving foreground and sky into 3.4 stops you get   [ read ]

Linhof Tripod Heads

It is a well-known code among artists and photographers (of a certain age) that striving for perfection is a pretty pointless, hopeless and ultimately futile exercise. Indeed it is cautioned against in many cultures, for perfection is ‘the exclusive domain   [ read ]


Sony A7R – Field Report

Sony A7R – Short Term Field Review Like all of us who shoot colour 5×4 it has become very likely that film or processing will disappear over the next few years or become prohibitively expensive. I have been looking at   [ read ]


Small Camera – Big Pictures

Not since the details first leaked of the Nikon D800 has there been a camera that has generated this much pre-release ‘web’ debate, speculation and hyperbole. Expectations from the diminutive Sony A7R (and A7) are high, possibly too high. Would   [ read ]


D4 Tripod Head

A while back, Dave Tolcher reviewed the then quite new Arca Swiss d4 geared head. This report picks up where he left off and rounds out his observations with some solid experience gleaned over the past 18 months of using   [ read ]

As above but with no processing or crop, and showing 'hotspot'.

Phase One IQ260 and IQ260 Achromatic Backs

A Little Joke There’s an old photographers’ gag with a great moral for my field test of the IQ260 and IQ260 Achro backs from Phase One. A Time Life photographer is sent to cover a huge bush fire. His instructions   [ read ]


Camera Survey

Just over a month ago we asked our readers to tell us what cameras they used for their landscape photography and we had a great response. We’ve spent a bit of time analysing the results (my programming skills come in   [ read ]


Plustek Opticfilm 120

In the world of scanning there are three categories: the flatbed, the dedicted film scanner and the drum scanner. In recent years the only ‘pro’ scanner that you could buy new at a reasonable cost was the Epson V750: a   [ read ]
