Here are a few of my thoughts and a break down of how it works.

Canon SL2 (EOS 200D) – First Impressions

I don’t do a lot of reviews on cameras I don’t own, but recently I had the Canon SL2 for a weekend and was so impressed by the way it shot and felt that I had to take it out for a day of shooting.

Here are my initial impressions. 

Helios 44-2 Review | A King Of Character

If you’re looking to get started collecting old vintage lenses from the 80’s and 90’s, then the Helios 44 series is a great place to start. They are known for their beautiful large swirling bubble bokeh.

Lately I’ve been shooting quite a bit with the Helios 44-2 and other old vintage m42 manual focus lenses from the 80’s. While shooting with manual lenses takes more time and isn’t always as precise, it’s much more rewarding and you feel like you have complete control of every shot you take.

The Fujifilm X-Pro 2 as of late, has been my favorite camera to use for incidental photography.
