At the very end of the year 2015, I got my first DSLR Camera. It came with a Kit Lens, but I really anted to have something better. Back then, YouTube had me believe that every Photographer should have a Nifty 50. And so I decided to get one. My choice fell between Canons 50mm… Continue reading My first Lens.
Yesterday, I took a few Fotos with my new iPhone 11 to compare them to my Camera in a fun little competition. Today, I decided to go out and shoot a short Video with it. To shoot the Video, I used two Apps, FilMic Pro and FilMic DoubleTake. I filmed in Log and also with… Continue reading Filming with my iPhone.
Yesterday after Work, I really needed some fresh Air. And after some deliberation, I decided to go to the Oderteich in the Harz. I had a great, albeit short time there. But this Story is not about that. It is about how I almost lost every single Picture I took at the Teich. And it… Continue reading At the Oderteich.
Last Year I spent a whole week rail tripping the Netherlands. It was awesome. I also spend a day in Rotterdam, and I really liked it there. But I also had one really heart breaking Moment. My Camera somehow detached from the Lens I was using, and that was connected to my Camera Strap, and… Continue reading That Time my Camera took a dive.
The last few Days I have been trying out Back Button Auto Focus, or BBAF, on my Canon M5. It does not have a designated Button for that, but you can Map that Function to the Auto Exposure Lock Button. The thing is: I really do not like BBAF. On my tiny Camera, the AEL… Continue reading The thing about BBAF.
Dirty Camera Gear inevitably leads to Problems down the Road. And even though your Camera is just a Tool to you, it is generally a good Idea to take Care of your Tools. Cleaning your Kit is quite easy. You just have to do it every now and then. And the easiest way to plan… Continue reading Why it is important to clean your Gear.
About one Year ago, I blew my own Mind with the Evermacro Device, a small Adapter that allows you to turn any Lens into a Macro Lens. And since I am currently only going outside when I need to, I thought that it would be a nice Idea to revisit that magical Tool by doing… Continue reading Revisiting the Evermacro Device.
I love Photography. I also love Hiking. But I definitely would not like it to carry my Gear around by Hand all the Time. Mostly because I could not bring that much of it in the first place. So I use a Backpack to carry whatever I need on a particular day. And while I… Continue reading What is in my Backpack?
Back in 2015, when I got my first DSLR for Christmas, I also got a fully manual anubia 500mm Lens from my father. I never really liked that Lens. It is not really that good. That is mostly because it is so extremely long, fully manual and also quite dark, starting at ƒ/8.0. It is… Continue reading A very long Lens.
A few days ago, I saw some reactions to a Fuji Camera Announcement. There were quite a few people complaining about articulated Screens on Cameras. And I absolutely love those things. Ever since I got my Canon M5, I absolutely love the flip down Screen it comes with. But I also think that a fully… Continue reading Flippy Screens are awesome.
