To the R&D teams at Sigma, Tamron, Tokina and other Lens manufacturers. I am writing with a request/plea that i am sure many others have made in the past when it comes to lenses for users of MILC systems like Micro 4/3, Sony E/FE & Fuji X systems.    WE NEED MORE ZOOM TYPE LENSES […]


  Intro: Ok, you have made the decision to go and shoot film, now the question is what camera do i want to use??  This makes decisions rather tough, as there are so many different cameras out there that do so many things and so many legendary cameras.  Rephrase the question & it will help […]


This is going to be a small series of posts,  because there is way to much to cover in just one post… Im going to preface this post with a disclaimer, I have NEVER been a massive fan of using my mobile device as a replacement for a pocket camera. I would rather actually carry […]


I had the opportunity to spend the weekend shooting the Olympus m.Zuiko 40-150mm f2.8 PRO  lens with 1.4x Tele Converter. The lens was kindly loaned to me by a good customer after i was approached to take some photo’s at a field hockey event here in Dunedin on a Friday night, my m.Zuiko 75-300 would have […]

With Micro 4/3 cameras the focus of many at the moment, most photographers have forgotten about Olympus’s E series of DSLR cameras, and i think its a shame, the E series cameras have always been very very good cameras. The Olympus E series was the first system camera designed from the ground up including lenses […]

Why is this article called Legacy, i will explain shortly, but first a little history…. Back in the day, when interchangable len s cameras became popular, they nearly all used a common 42mm screw thread, and cameras like the Leica III series or Kodak Retina’s                     […]


Olympus have been on the money with their Micro 4/3 range of cameras, the Pen series and the OM-D have all hit the spot perfectly in terms of features vs price. Unfortunately due to very aggressive marketing of the low end D-SLR cameras, one Pen model flies under the radar in terms of specs vs […]


A Common question we often get asked by customers, especially customers who are moving into mirrorless or D-SLR cameras is ‘can i only use the same brand accessories such as lenses, flashes etc on my new camera?’     The simple answer to this is no. The long answer is no, there are many companies who […]
