Richie Campbell

O Verão passou tão rapidamente na Chappa que só percebemos o seu declínio (!) quando esta vaga de frio nos fez lembrar a chegada do Inverno.

Mythbusters… Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II at ISO 20000… And fine bokeh…

M.Zuiko Digital 40-150mm f2.8 PRO @110mm (35mm equiv. 220mm). 1/80s@f2.8 ISO 20000, handheld. One of these days I was asked if I was using Olympus professionally, if Olympus was my gear on the field. “Yes” I replied. Unfortunately some minds are still full of misconceptions and prejudice, stuck in a Canikon world where size, weight,Continue a ler “Mythbusters… Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II at ISO 20000… And fine bokeh…”

A couple of months ago I got my hands on the newest addition to the Profoto family, the Profoto A1. The first on-camera flash of the Swedish brand, which can be doubled up as an off-camera flash and as an air remote with built-in TTL for triggering additional A1 units, as well as the otherContinue a ler “Review of the Profoto A1 – The Future in Mobile Flash?

Weather sealed does not mean waterproof, Richard Butler (DP Review)

It shouldn’t need saying, but weather resistant, weather sealed and environmentally sealed do not mean waterproof. A cursory glance at your warranty should make this clear: no matter how good a reputation your brand has, if it isn’t covered by the warranty, you’re in ‘at your own risk’ territory. Roger Cicala’s latest blog post overContinue a ler “Weather sealed does not mean waterproof, Richard Butler (DP Review)”

The real price – Fujifilm GFX 50S

Plenty has been said about the price of the new medium-format camera from Fujifilm. More often than not comments are something like “fabulous piece of kit, uncanny image rendition and quality, unbelievable sharpness and detail, the minus being the price”. I’m not a medium format user, although I used to be back in the daysContinue a ler “The real price – Fujifilm GFX 50S”

Fujinon XF 16-55mm f2.8 R LM WR versus four Fujinon primes: 16mm f1.4, 23mm f1.4, 35mm f1.4 and 56mm f1.2 We all know the commitment Fujifilm has to provide the best lenses one can have.

Hyperion wrist strap

A few weeks ago I’ve reviewed Hyperion Camera Neck Strap – now I got a similar, but shorter, wrist strap from Hyperion. Well, different colour but all the same feeling, quality and plush. Hyperion is selling these camera straps on ebay – they are hand made in Greece; Pablo manufactures every single one with loveContinue a ler “Hyperion wrist strap”

What can you do with €150 worth of LED Light?

Well, not much you may say. But you can do a lot, yes, indeed you can. I bought a pair of MCOPlus LED 322A video lights from Hi-tech Wonder in Lisbon, with the sole purpose of using them for still photography. At less than €75 each, they were a steal. Obviously, forget mega productions, massiveContinue a ler “What can you do with €150 worth of LED Light?”
