Nikon D810 Review

Four years ago, I made the switch to full frame, upgrading from my trusty Nikon D300 to the Nikon D700. By the time I made the switch, the D700 was already available for  2 1/2 years, so its reputation and capabilities were already well-established. Full frame was like night and day after coming from a cropped sensor camera, and while some things definitely took some getting used to, it wasn’t long before the D700 became my rock solid companion for […]

Review: Olympus OM-D E-M5

I started using my first DSLR, a Nikon D70, back in September 2004. It was Nikon’s first consumer-level DSLR, with a whopping 6 megapixels and breakthrough high ISO performance. Since then, I’ve relied on the high quality of DSLRs to produce print-worthy photos, along with the use of the RAW file format to process photos to my own liking. Meanwhile, smaller cameras in point-and-shoots and phones couldn’t really come close in terms of quality, especially when it comes to high […]

Nikkor 24mm f/1.4G and Nikkor 135mm f/2D Review

Since I started using my Nikon D700 last November, I hadn’t really changed my line-up of lenses.  My Nikkor 50mm f/1.4D and Nikkor 85mm f/1.8D felt right at home with the new full frame sensor, and the Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G satisfied my everyday walk around lens requirement, but none of these lenses really offered anything new to me.  On top of that, my first generation Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 VR was proven to have some issues with the new FX format […]

New Camera Bag — Kata R-103

One of the things that’s been bugging me as of late has been my main camera bag. I’ve been using a Lowepro CompuTrekker Plus for a few years now and for the most part, it’s treated me well. I could carry all my gear with room to spare, including my laptop. However, as useful as the space was, a lot of it wasn’t being used. The bag is also rather bulky, even though it’s gone through the airport perfectly fine. […]

Review: Samsung Memoir T929

I’ve been meaning to post up my review of this phone since it replaced my venerable Sony Ericsson w810i a few months ago. My old phone is still going strong is Kyle’s hands, and I still miss it to a certain extent. However, when I found out that this new Samsung Memoir not only had an 8 Megapixel camera (yes that’s correct, 8MP) but also 3G internet browsing, it was a pretty quick decision for me. There’s definitely more technical […]
