8 Wallet-Friendly Full Frame Cameras for Photographers on a Budget


By Brett Day on Feb 12, 2020 06:00 pm
Just a few short years ago, Full Frame cameras were way out of the reach of most photographers. Older DSLR's like the Canon 5D series and the Nikon 8XX series were priced at around $3,000 or more, and unless you wanted to settle for an entry-level, almost featureless Full Frame camera, you had to really save up those pennies. Today, though, things are slightly different. You can grab Full-Frame cameras that are affordable and are full of features with the latest tech for under $2,000 (sometimes even less). In this roundup, we will share with you some of our favorite Full Frame cameras that fall into this category.

See How Film Photography is Getting People Back in The Real World


By Dan Ginn on Feb 12, 2020 12:00 pm
In an article recently published on CNN Travel, Jonny Bealby, owner of tour operator Wild Frontiers, spoke about his exciting new tour concept. Customers will visit beautiful destinations such as Oman and Mongolia, but with one catch - they have to disconnect from their digital devices completely. That means no smartphones to snap all that they see. Instead, they will be given analog cameras, allowing them to capture the most important moments. It's a move I welcome and one that I find incredibly exciting.

Someone Stuffed a New Olympus Pen into a Vintage Pen F Body


By Joy Celine Asto on Feb 12, 2020 09:00 am
With the steady popularity of retro-styled digital cameras, we can assume that camera companies will continue to draw inspiration from classic designs and iconic models. However, it’s also reasonable to expect that these modern takes on the classics can only go as far. So, if you have a specific vintage camera that you hope would see a digital version, your best bet is often a third-party digital back (although it will most likely look a little unwieldy and clunky). Unless, you have the guts, patience, and talent for tinkering and making your own — or you’re an Olympus fan and would be willing to settle for a vintage Olympus Pen F combined with a digital PEN E-PM1!

Review: Olympus 12-45mm f4 PRO (F8 and Be There!)


By Chris Gampat on Feb 12, 2020 06:00 am
You may be wondering why I'm channeling a WeeGee quote around the Olympus 12-45mm f4 PRO review. The reason why is because of the depth of field. Wide-open at f4, this lens has the equivalent depth of field of a full-frame lens at f8. However, it has the light-gathering abilities of f4. So with that said, a photographer can go around and shoot at an f8 equivalent and get lots of great moments perfectly in focus. Add to that this lens' weather sealing, small size, and performance and you've got a lens that will prove itself very useful. While this is a great lens, it reminds me that Olympus really needs fast aperture zoom lenses too.

Review: Olympus OMD EM1 III (A Travel Photographer’s Imperfect Gem)


By Chris Gampat on Feb 12, 2020 01:00 am
Though I'm hesitant to call the Olympus OMD EM1 III a specialized camera, it could be the best way to describe it. Travel, landscape, wildlife and night photographers will adore its features. The small size combined with small lenses, deep depth of field at open apertures, and the build quality are all highly prized. When the aging sensor at the heart of the Olympus OMD EM1 III starts to rear its ugly head, Olympus has the ability to deliver beautiful images via the art filters. In my discussions with other journalists, I feel like the Art Filters are what truly makes Olympus unique. It's synonymous with Fujifilm's Film Simulations. If you don't believe me, I've got one word for you: Acros. While traveling, the system is lightweight and one of the most manageable that I've used. And no matter where you're traveling to, the Olympus OMD EM1 III has durability almost comparable to the EM1X. So why would you leave Sony, Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Leica, Panasonic or Fujifilm for an Olympus OMD EM1 III? Honestly, I'm still pondering who the photographer is that would do just that.
