World traditions – Pig slaughter (graphic content!)

World traditions – Pig slaughter There are plenty of European countries where pig slaughter is still common in traditional rural houses. This occurs before Christmas to provide festive cuisine and the entire family participates. The animal is slaughtered with a knife, then drained of blood, hair is burned and then washed away. A cold day is chosen as a natural method of preserving the relatively large quantities of meat during...

Some amazing details from the Sony A7RIII

Some amazing details from the Sony A7RIII I was curious after my initial preview of the Sony A7RIII based in London at its launch event to look for similar images taken with both A9 plus the new 24-105 F4 and with A7RIII plus the 24-70 F2.8 G Master lens. I know it’s not a fair, equal nor direct comparison but was just curious how far Image Quality can go in the amazing combo of the A7RIII plus the GMaster lens. Images were...

Hands on with Sony FE 24-105 F4 G lens and real world image examples

So we’ve been all impressed by the launch of new toys from Sony, including the Sony A7RIII, the Sony FE 24-105 F4 G and the announcement of in-development Sony G Master 400mm f/2.8. I’ve posted details here about all of them, including some live-footage from the event. After the presentation we were invited for some hands-on experiences with both the A7RIII (see the hands on article here) camera and the new lens, the Sony...

Sony A9 takes a flight in Cappadocia

Did you ever woke up just to think you’re still dreaming? It happened to me plenty of times, but most recently in our Cappadocia trip in Turkey. Hanging mid air at over 500m, before sunrise, surrounded only by silence, hearing nothing but your breath and heartbeat it’s a difficult thing to express in words, or even images. You have to live it by yourself, at least once in a lifetime! I’ve been invited to a Sony Press...

Zeiss Batis 135mm f/2.8 on Sony A9

I got my hands on the Zeiss Batis 135mm f/2.8 one day before I’ve received to much acclaimed Sony A9 for tests too. In case you haven’t seen my review about the Sony A9, check it here. How is the Batis 135mm? After the not so good experience with the previous Batis, the 85mm f/1.8 (I have returned it, see here why), I didn’t have high hopes for this new lens from the series. But oh boy, how wrong was I! The...

Sony 12-24 f/4 G lens hands on review on Lago Maggiore

This article is a continuation of the Sony 16-35 f/2.8 G Master and Sony 12-24 f/4 G lens review. Here is part 1. As I was telling you in the first part we had our hands on these two lenses on a press trip on Lago Maggiore, Italy. We had plenty of Sony A9’s, A7R II‘s and both these lenses on our disposal. I’ve focused a little more on the Sony 16-35 f/2.8 G Master than needed so I took less time to check this...

The Sony 16-35 f/2.8 G Master and Sony 12-24 f/4 G lens review

I’ve been invited last week to the European press event to see and test the newly announced Sony 16-35 f/2.8 G Master and Sony 12-24 f/4 G.  It’s difficult to review a lens after a day’s usage. Not to mention two of them :). So let’s not call this a real review, but a hands-on experience. A marvellous experience on the coast of Grand Lake (Lago Maggiore) as seen from Stresa, Italy. So let’s take them one...

One week with the Sony A9 – An honest hands-on review

Sony took us by storm when they’ve announced the much expected Sony A9. I was watching the live event (and live blogging about it) and soon after, on Internet started to appear footage with the shooting experience at the launch. I was once again blown away and couldn’t figure why Sony didn’t marketed the A9 as a wedding camera. But more on that … One month later, I got my hands on the Sony A9 My phone ringed...

Despre WEDDCAMP, sau cum creste o comunitate de fotografi

Se zice, si de catre unii se si stie, ca nu prea poti vorbi de comunitate de fotografi in Romania. S-au incercat de-a lungul timpului tot felul de retete: forumuri, site-uri, comunitati, grupuri pe Facebook, asociatii etc. Dar nimic care sa dureze, sau in care sa simti ca oamenii se apreciaza reciproc si ca isi doresc sa invete unii de la ceilalti. Insa de ceva timp urmaresc un fenomen interesant si culmea, acesta a aparut intr-un...
