Over the past couple of days, I saw several videos on YouTube claiming that you can turn every lens into a macro lens with one simple piece of metal. And since I'm naturally curious and don't believe everything I see or hear without a pinch of salt, I had to try that out my self.… Continue reading I just blew my mind: The evermacro device.
Last year, I got gifted a new camera for no particular reason. My only task was to choose between DSLR and Mirrorless. And off course also in which system to invest. My final 'decision-match' was between three cameras, two Mirrorless and one DSLR. The contenders were the Canon 80D on the more traditional style of… Continue reading Why I went mirrorless last year.
and I just got one delivered yesterday. I ordered it mostly because a broke my bendy pentapod thingy (that means it was a five-legged thing), but mostly because I broke my iPhone mount. And even more, because I got G.A.S.*. Now, G.A.S. is not really a decease, but it's bad for your wallet. And your… Continue reading I love new toys…
A few months ago, I decided that I wanted to try out some clip on lenses for my phone. Those were very cheap, around 12€, but had two mayor drawbacks. They didn't fit my iPhone with a case. The was not satisfied with the image quality. It straight out sucked. Those lenses suffered extremely from… Continue reading I love my new mobile lens.
I really just was bored as I looked up 35mm SLR cameras on EBay Kleinanzeigen (> Classifieds). I never thought I'd actually buy one. But I did. I bought my first 'full frame' SLR. I got it for just under 50€. With a bag, a 'speed lite', 3 lenses (28,50 and 135mm primes) and some… Continue reading I just got myself a 35mm SLR.
I had a profile on EyeEm since a while. I even had the app on my iPhone. And today I had 7 unread notifications on my photography related app folder. So naturally I tapped in to find out where those notifications came from. It was my long forgotten EyeEm app. And now I use it. … Continue reading Finally active on EyeEm.
A few months ago, I found myself wanting (and needing) a new backpack. After some consideration, and some research, I chose Haglöfs Corker Large in Hurricane Blue, as it is made entirely from recycled materials, and it looks great. > The backpack on haglofs.com I found what seemed to be a great offer on a… Continue reading I love my new backpack.
My new tripod arrived yesterday. And I have to say: I love it. It's a Manfrotto Befree Aluminum in black and red. And it's way sturdier then my previous cheepo tripod. That one broke two legs two weeks after purchase, and it was quite wobbly since day one. Now I finally have the ability of… Continue reading Got a new tripod.
I waited for this since WWDC last June: RAW SHOOTING ON IPHONE! (If you have an iPhone SE, 6s(+) or 7(+) that is.) To accomplish that, you currently have to use some third party app, like Adobes Lightroom Mobile or Obscura Camera. The used RAW format is Adobes DNG (Digital Negative), the format they implemented… Continue reading It’s finally there. Real RAW shooting on iPhones.
Finally got a telephoto lens that sports STM autofocus. Prior, I only had a fully manual 500mm lens with a maximum aperture of f/8. (Took this with my new lens) It's a Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM. I got it for my birthday yesterday.
