Dear Google, thanks for being an idiot!

Dear Google, thanks for being an idiot!

Salil using Sony A7r

Sony A7r and The Mirrorless Brigade…

I have never been a fan of mirrorless cameras and I have always believed that while SLTs are a good option, smaller mirrorless bodies just don’t make sense (more on this later). That opinion of mine got somewhat changed when Sony came out with A7 and A7r, full frame mirrorless […]

SDHC Card Shootout for Photographers

SDHC Card Shootout for Photographers

I had been thinking about doing a SD/SDHC card shootout for a while now, because even though I know from my field experience which cards are faster, I wanted to measure it in a more quantifiable manner and make it easier for others to understand, why I recommend certain memory […]
