Migration To Mirrorless: The Lens

  After writing my last post I was almost immediately asked about my lens choice. After all the best-est-est-est camera body in the universe without fantastic matching glass is only a fancy paperweight. Two years ago I was using a combination of a M4/3 lens that was (and still is) a bit too soft for […]

My first gear video review ever- the Panasonic Leica 42.5mm F1.2 Lens for m43: Nikola Danaylov

My name is Nikola (aka Socrates) and this is my lens review of the Panasonic Leica Nocticron 42.5mm F1.2 Lens. Before we begin let me just tell you that I am not a professional photographer or videographer and this will not be a scientific review with resolution tests and charts. No. This will be a […]

What is the Best Lens Choice for Portraits of Dogs?

Here’s another Tails In Motion portrait of a rescue dog.   My lens choice was the Lumix 7-14. Pretty wide… My concern was that the 7-14 lens while being great for the up close stills of the dog was not as good for the video where I would have preferred at least the 12-35 or […]

Tips to Find the Right Filters for your Mirrorless Lenses

I use a variable neutral density filter to control exposure when shooting video. I also use an ND filter if I want to use wider apertures or longer shutter speeds in bright light.  After seeing Marlene’s great post and video about using a variable neutral density filter, I thought I would give you some tips […]

Great shots with the LUMIX 100-300mm f4-5.6 MFT lens

After watching Crockett’s video about the Panasonic Lumix 100-300mm f4-5.6 G lens I decided to get another copy and try it again. Like Will, I had used this lens before and was not impressed with the image quality. I took the 100-300mm with me to Costa Rica last week and gave it a workout. Instead […]

The Bride Has Her Dress and I Have – GEAR!

When I offered to let my sister sHero, Jessica Wallach, use my GH3 cameras and accessories for a wedding shoot, I realized that with the event being 6 hours away I had to bring everything that she might want. Then it occurred to me that you might be interested in what “everything” would look like. […]

Coming in Close…No Need to Crop

I recently got the Panasonic 35-100 mm lens (the equivalent to the DSLR 70-200 mm) and it allows me to come in close and create those intimate portraits I love.  This is my new number one reason I love shooting with a mirrorless camera: ability to get in close with a a telephoto lens.  It’s […]

Re-Testing the Lumix 100-300mm Zoom

A few months ago, a tribe of posters on one of the big photo forums made it clear that my opinion on the Lumix 100-300mm zoom was wrong. Ha!  Dunno how an opinion can be wrong, but I’m always open to ideas and when I met up for coffee with my friend Scott Bourne I […]

Hybrid Photography: Which Wide Angle Lenses for Mirrorless?

A question from a viewer from “Ask Will” prompted me to make a short video reply on which wide angle lenses I’m using for my client images with mirrorless. As you probably know, I have used or tested LOTS of mirrorless gear and has a wide array of lenses in his mirrorless cabinet to cover […]
