Quick intro to this series (Pascal) : There have been many writers on DS, some regular, some on and off . We though it would be interesting for us to describe what we carry around during our shooting sessions, to highlight the vast differences between all of our approaches to

#769. Monday Post (17 Sept 2018) Of landscape photographers but landmark cameras. Why the Hasselblad X1D is a landmark camera!

There are good cameras, there are remarkable cameras, and there are landmark cameras. For example, the Nikon D850 does everything very well indeed, at levels unthinkable just a couple of years ago. It is a remarkable camera, as DS contributor Dallas can attest to. That said, it is not a

#761. Monday Post (27 Aug 2018) – What an e-Z week we’ve had !

What a week for gear, right? Nikon’s announcement of 2 new mirrorless cameras caused quite a stir among DS email list members. After months of slumber, you could hear us typing frantically, exchanging thoughts around the globe. And let’s not forget the other seismic shift of the week. One of

#759 The Monday Post: Nikon goes mirrorless

  Never say never. It was as though both Canon and Nikon swore they would never go mirrorless. At least, not for “serious” cameras. They did have mirrorless offerings, but clearly pitched below anything that could cost them any sales of their beloved DSLRs.     Well that is about

#753. The Monday (Guest) Post – Kirk Tuck’s take on Nikon’s mirrorless plans

Why I will absolutely rush to buy the new mirrorless Nikon but will probably never take possession of one…   Breathlessly waiting for the big announcement of Nikon’s mirrorless delivery date. I can’t eat, I can’t sleep, I can’t even drink coffee because I’m so excited to finally be able

#748. Monday Post (9 July 2018) – Nikon’s mirrorless – will they, won’t they?

#743. The X-H1. Has Fuji hit the target? Three opinions.

Kaiman Wong (Kai W) calls it a beast. An acknowledged street photographer true, but jizzing around in the rain outside a new(ish) building at 1 New Change in the City of London is hardly a decent test.   There are now three X-H1s in the hands of our contributors and

#739. An Acute Attack of GAS – Sony A7R111/Nikon D850

  GAS we’ve all had it, in mid May, it struck with a vengeance. The thought process was; maybe, I should change systems and ditch the heavy Nikon D810 and go for a more compact body, like the relatively new highly acclaimed Sony A7R 111, surely any bugs of the
