Rank #1: We Shoot Mirrorless #27 | PPN | Talking about new mirrorless cameras with Angela Nicholson

Marco has invited back his friend, journalist, and reviewer of cameras and photographic equipment Angela Nicholson to talk about the latest news from the world of mirrorless cameras.

Canon has released the EOS M200. The new M200 replaced the M100 entry-level APS-C camera. It still has a 24MP APS-C sensor and a 180° touch LCD. But the new Digic 8 processor is supposed to improve the AF with Dual Pixel AF and eye detection.

Canon PowerShot G5X MK II

The G5 X MK II is a high-end compact camera with a 20MP 1” sensor. It has a fixed 24-120mm f1.8-2.8 zoom lens. But one of its special features is a pop-up EVF and flash.

The touch-LCD tilts up 180° and 90° down and on the video side, the camera shoots 4K/30p and up to 120p in full HD video.

Fuji announced the development of the X-Pro 3. This new iteration of the X-Pro line from Fuji will have a better Hybrid Electronic- and optical viewfinder and it finally gets a tilt-LCD. But as much as Marco has been wanting this feature on the X-Pro line, he has quite some concerns if the way that Fuji implemented it will be very convenient in real-life situations.

Fuji also announced the development of an XF 50mm f1.0 lens. But this lens will come instead of the long-time announced XF 33mm f1.0 lens. Why did they change their mind and was this a good decision?

Marco’s Fuji X-T2 has issues with the weather sealing and the Fuji Cam Remote app continues to have serious issues.

Fuji has also announced an update to the entry-level X-A5 that is now called X-A7.

The camera has a new 24MP APS-C bayer pattern sensor with 8.5 times more phase-detection AF-Pixel than the previous X-A5. The camera has only 4 buttons: A shared drive/trash bin, a replay, a shared Menu/OK, and a display button. Plus an AF-Joystick that helps to operate the camera next to the 3.5” touch LCD. The camera will be available in 4 colors and will hit the stores on October 24th.

Sony introduced the a7R IV. This is a 61MP full-frame camera that also offers a high-res mode with 240MP. The OLED EVF as 5.7 Mio. dot and the 4K video mode does not add a crop to the width of the sensor.

Sony a7R IV

B&H: https://bhpho.to/2BqoYS9

Sony also added the new entry-level a6100 and the flagship a6600 to their APS-C lineup. The a6100 is a stripped-down a6400 with a lower resolution EVF. The new a6600 has IBIS, faster tracking AF and uses bigger Z-type batteries that hold about twice the capacity compared to the smaller W-series that the other a6000 cameras are using.

The full-frame camera has a dual native ISO sensor with 24MP that allows fro 4:2:2 10-bit internal recording at 4K/60P. Compared to the S1 siblings with one SD and one XQD memory slot, this camera has 2 SD card slots.

Rank #2: We Shoot Mirrorless #6 | PPN | September 7th, 2017

Podcast cover

On this episode #6 “We Shoot Mirrorless” podcast episode for September 2017, Scott and Marco discuss these new products and mirrorless topics:

This show is sponsored by B&H: bit.ly/bhphotodeals

  • Olympus released the new OM-D E-M10 III with mechanical and digital image stabilization even when shooting 4K video. The new camera also gained more AF points, bigger dials and a beginner friendlier user interface. https://bhpho.to/2wJP5Co

  • Fujifilm released the new X-E3 with a 24 MPix APS-C X-Trans sensor, 4K video, touch LCD and Bluetooth connectivity. But it still does not have a tilt-LCD… https://bhpho.to/2wayq7t

  • Canon upgraded its entry level EOS M10 mirrorless camera with the new Canon EOS M100 model. It gains a 24 MPix APS-C sensor, a Digic 7 processor and 6 fps burst shooting at a very affordable price. https://bhpho.to/2wJEGX9

  • Ricoh has upgraded its popular and very compact 360° Theta camera with the new Theta V. The new model has a much faster processor to allow for 4K video along with 14MPix stiched still images. And the camera has a cool optional 3D mic (Ricoh TA-1) available for a more realistic 360° audio experience.

Theta V 360° 4K camera: https://bhpho.to/2waKLIw

Ricoh TA-1 3D Microphone for THETA V 360 camera: https://bhpho.to/2wJJkoh

  • DJI upgraded the Mavic Pro with a new Mavic Pro Platinum model. According to DJI the upgraded drone has an increased flight time of 11% (from 27 to 30 minutes) and is up to 60% quieter in flight than the previous model! https://bhpho.to/2waQP45

  • Panasonic announced the promised FW 2.0 update for the Lumix GH5 (https://bhpho.to/2wJtfi8) camera and added a few extra features that were not previously announced. THe FW 2.0 should be ready for download by the end of September 2017.

  • Hasselblad released a FW 1.17.2 update for their medium format mirrorless X1D-50c camera (https://bhpho.to/2wb3CDl) that adds the option of electronic shutter that operates between 1/10.000s and 68 minutes. They have also added the option to chose between 3 resizable AF points that allow for a focus point grid of 35 AF points for the largest and 117 AF points for the smallest AF point settings.

Mirrorless question of the month:

Hi Scott / Marco, absolutely love your show. Here is my question: If I want to get into wildlife photography, which entry-level mirrorless camera would you recommend for someone coming from DSLR?

Why I'm asking: it's not clear for me if the Olympus E-M10 II as the E-M1's smaller sibling would be up to the task, although it doesn't have the E-M1 Mk II's phase detection AF. Would something like the Fuji X-T20 (which supports PD AF) be a better option? Looking forward to your recommendation!

Cheers, Alex Munich / Germany

Here are the questions that Scott and Rick answer on this episode:

1. Would like to ask, how do you get better at composition? Seems like such a talent I don’t have.

From Carlos Rivera‏ On Twitter

2. What’s the biggest mistake that people moving from film to digital photography make?

From Dave in Tulsa, OK

3. Do you shoot JPEG or RAW and Lightroom or ???

From Aaron‏ on Twitter

4. How do you avoid getting red eye? I saw some on the forums saying use the red-eye reduction mode but my camera doesn’t have that.

From Susan in Evansville, IN

5. How do you go about shooting in harsh sunlight?

From Stephanie Rodham on Twitter

6. Why do some portrait photographers choose continuous (hot)lights v. strobe?

From Alex in San Francisco, CA

7. Have any tips for shooting fast moving objects/ sports?

From Ryan Simonovich‏ on Twitter

8. How do you get your portrait subjects to relax?

From Phil in Edmonton, Alberta

9. Why can I not get the same picture in my camera as in my head?

From Russ Scullen‏ on Twitter

10. What motivates you to continue taking pictures economically, politically, intellectually or emotionally?

From Edward in Boise, ID

11. Why don’t camera manufacturers built camera bases with the Area Swiss plate built into the base?  I see lots of questions on forums asking “what plate to buy”- why not build it into the camera, save the extra bulk/weight/cost?  And many m43 cameras are not deemed worthy of a custom plate, leading to problems accessing batteries//cards when using generic plates.

This show is loaded with mirrorless news and hands-on experience with some of the new cameras. For this show, Marco has invited back his friend, journalist, and reviewer of cameras and photographic equipment Angela Nicholson.

Fuji X-T30 - Fuji has introduced the replacement for the X-T20. The new X-T30 gains some features of the top of the line X-T3, like the 26.1 MP BSI sensor, the AF-joystick, and a faster AF. But some features as lacking from the big brother like the second SD-card slot, the high res EVF, and the dedicated ISO dial. Angela has used the camera and shares her experience with it.

Fuji X-T30

Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/2NnJPLr

Fuji announced the XF 16mm f2.8 lens. This lens is a much smaller and lighter version of the XF 16mm f1.4 lens. Its built quality is similar to the XF23, 35, and 50mm f2 range of lenses and at about 40% of the weight and 40% of the price of the XF 16mm f1.4 this lens may be worth a second look if you like to add a classic 24mm field of view lens to your bag.

B&H: https://bhpho.to/2IoZb36

Fuji has also announced the GF 100-200mm f5.6 LM OIS WR tele-zoom lens for the Fuji GFX medium format camera. This lens will yield an EFV of 80-160mm in FF terms.

In April, Fuji will offer a FW update for the X-T3. FW 3.0 will improve the AF speed and face & eye-detection accuracy. A new face-select AF option, when you have multiple faces in the screen, will also be added.

Panasonic has released the final specs of the Lumix S1 and S1R full frame cameras. Marco has used a pre-production review unit of the S1R for a couple of days and shares the specs and some info on the usability and purpose of this camera.

To go along with the new Lumix S1 cameras, Panasonic has also released three new lenses for the new L-mount. The S PRO 50mm f1.4, the S 24-105mm f4 Macro O.I.S., and the S PRO 70-200 f4 O.I.S. lens. Each lens fills an interesting niche in terms of focal length, weight, features, and price.

Sony has announced the a6400 APS-C that replaces the a6300. The compact 24 MP camera has been pimped with a processor and AF system that Sony claims is the world’s fastest autofocus. And with the speed, they have also added real-time eye AF and real-time tracking. This APS-C camera sounds like the cropped version of an a9, but we are wondering if the rangefinder style shape is really appealing for whom this speedy APS-C camera is targeted at?

Mirrorless question of the month:

Hi! I mostly shoot weddings and families with a Nikon D750 and have an X-T10 for fun. I want to switch completely to the Fuji X-T2. There are other mirrorless brands but they just don’t interest me and I don’t want full frame due to the size of the lens. The one thing that is holding me back is the time between shutter actuation on the X-T10. I know Marco uses the X-T2 and was curious if he has noticed it on that camera. The X-T10 has a slight delay between shots and would not work in my professional work. Thanks in advance and I love all of your podcast.

Angela flew all the way to Rome to test out the new Fuji X-T30 camera. The new X-T30 replaced the X-T30 and gains some features of the top of the line X-T3, like the 26.1 MP BSI sensor, the AF-joystick, and a faster AF. But some features as lacking from the big brother like the second SD-card slot, the high res EVF, and the dedicated ISO dial. Angela has used the camera and shares her experience with it and how it compares to the X-T3.

Just after we were done recording, Fuji issued a FW 1.01 update to lessen the effect of the X-T30 “accidental Q-button engagement.” After installing and testing the Q-button update, Angela has added her findings at the bottom of the X-T30 review at CameraJabber.com: https://camerajabber.com/fujifilm-x-t30-review/

Fuji released FW update 3.0 for the X-T3. The main improvements cover face and eye detect AF accuracy. Face AF priority has also been added - you can now select the face to focus and meter for when there are multiple people in the frame. And another improvement enables faster AF speed for subjects at a distance.

X-T3 FW update on Fuji’s website: Fuji website: https://www.fujifilm.com/support/digital_cameras/software/firmware/x/xt3/index.html

Fuji Camera Remote App for iOS update. With this update to App V4.0 Marco thinks that the software has finally been improved from “painful to use” to “somewhat usable.” Marco discusses in the show what he thinks is still lacking from the program and urges all camera manufacturers to invest more effort in the features and usability of their smartphone apps. “If they want to compete with the constantly improving cameras on smartphones, they need to make their apps to be desirable to use and easy to pair to multiple devices.

Panasonic has released the Lumix G95/G90. Angela has had a hands-on with the camera and shares if this Lumix camera is more for the photographer, the videographer, or a truly 50-50 usable hybrid camera.

Angela also had a longer hands-on with the Panasonic Lumix S1 and S1R cameras and chimes in with her experience and opinion of those cameras in comparison to other FF mirrorless cameras on the market. And she also shares if she would prefer the S1 or S1R in her camera bag.

Ricoh introduced the new GR III camera. Both, Angela and Marco have tested the new compact mirrorless camera from Ricoh with its new 24MP APS-C sensor and newly rendered 28mm EFV lens. The rear LCD now is touch-enabled but there are a few things that Marco would have liked to see improved in this latest update to match this camera better to the target audience of street and travel photographers.

Leica has introduced the Q2. The updated Q still has the fantastic fixed 28mm f1.7 lens but gained an almost 100% bump in resolution with the new full-frame sensor moving up from 24MP to 47MP! With this higher resolution, Leica implemented a third native crop mode to the camera. Next to the 35mm (30MP) and 50mm (14.7MP) in-camera crop modes the added 75mm crop still produces a 6.6MP image. The electronic viewfinder was also updated from LCD to OLED and the capacity of the battery was also improved. But the update did not implement two of Marco’s “like to have seen” features of a tilt-LCD and dedicated ISO dial.

Sigma will make 11 of their Art lenses available for L-mount in 2019. This should make Lumix and Leica SL owners very happy because Sigma’s Art lenses are high quality at reasonable prices. The L-mount availability will include the 20mm, 24mm, 28mm, 35mm, 40mm, 50mm, 85mm, and 105mm f1.4 DG HSM lenses as well as the 14mm and 135mm f1.8 and the 70mm f2.8 macro ART lenses.

And Sigma is also introducing the MC-21 mount converter that will allow some of their SA and EF-mount lenses to adapt to the L-mount system.

Sony FW updates for a7 III and a9 cameras. The FW 3.0 for a7III and a7R III adds real-time Eye AF, Animal Eye AF plus interval shooting of 1-9999 exposures in 1 to 60 seconds intervals. The a9 FW 5.0 offers a new AI driven AF for better object recognition and real-time eye tracking plus some changes to the menu settings based on user requests.

Huawei P30 introduction. Angela has tried the new Huawei P30 smartphone with 4 built-in cameras and lenses. This smartphone offers a lot of versatility and features for photographers. The low-light quality is very good and even the computational DOF simulation of an up to f 0.95 lens does an impressive job of rendering fine detail and correctly applying it sharply to the subject or blurred to the background. But the P30 does seem to have some color issues in 4K video mode due to the new RYYB vs. the traditional RGGB pixel layout. But this should be fixable in a future FW update.

Mirrorless question of the month:

Hi! One question about RAW converter and workflow with Fuji. What's the best process to get from Fuji RAW to Lightroom?

  1. Directly import RAWs to LR?
  2. Convert RAW files with Adobe DNG Converter and then import dng in LR?
  3. Use Iridient (or others) instead of Adobe Converter?

Regards Daniel

  • Fuji X-T100 is the newest entry-level camera from Fuji that offers many features of the 50% more expensive X-T20 and also has some unique features like a fully articulating LCD and a 24MP sensor with standard bayer pattern layout - and that may actually be a good thing.

  • Leica Launches the C-Lux compact superzoom camera which is basically a rebranded Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS200 with a red dot that is about $250 more than the Panasonic version.

B&H: https://bhpho.to/2m0BsIz

  • Sony launched the compact RX100 VI. Sony has added a longer zoom lens to the latest version of this camera and the equivalent field of view is 24-200mm with a claimed 4-stop image stabilization. The extended zoom range made the lens quite a bit slower at f2.8-4.5 whereas the predecessor had an EVF 24-70mm lens at a much faster f1.8-2.8 aperture lens. The image processor was also upgraded and AF plus eye tracking should be faster than in the previous model. And they have finally added a touch-sensitive LCD.

Mirrorless question of the month:

Hi, first of all, a big thank you for the great photography podcasts that you release each month. You guys have become one of my favorite photography outlets :)

I’m actually a better painter than a photographer but my question involves both art forms. I paint on large canvas and would like to create high-resolution files of my paintings for archiving and digital post-processing. The paintings are much too large to scan. I own an old Nikon D7000 with 16MP and have been wanting to upgrade to a recent mirrorless camera. I’m looking at Panasonic and Olympus cameras as the 4:3 aspect ratio fits that of my paintings and both cameras have a high-resolution mode that can produce 80MP images from the 20MP sensor. Do you think that the high-resolution mode will enable me to get good quality large files of my paintings or is this just a marketing gimmick? And which lens would you recommend me to get?

Here are the questions that Scott and Rick answer on this episode:

  1. My internal drive is nearly full and I want to run my Lightroom catalog from an external drive. Do you have any tips or recommendations?

From Steve, Mary and Todd

  1. LR is turtle slow..time to jump to another program? Is Adobe doing anything about it?

From Daniel in Brasil

  1. Also, can you suggest any free or inexpensive one-time cost replacement software for iPhoto?

From Steve in Pennsylvania

  1. I am trying to understand why so many cameras come with high-quality video. I think that it makes sense to shoot video on a dedicated video camera and stills on a dedicated stills camera. Am I crazy?

From Ted in Seattle, WA

  1. With the advent of such high-quality image stabilization on some cameras and lenses, are tripods as valuable or as necessary as they used to be?

From Helen in San Rafael, CA

  1. I would like to photograph race cars at an Indycar event. What shutter speed should I use to freeze the action?

From Theron in Washington, D.C.

  1. I hear Scott say you sometimes need to “bump the focus” when photographing birds in flight and trying to get the most out of the autofocus. I think I understand but could you please explain?

From Jay in Anchorage, AK

  1. I want to save my photos for uploading to portfolio web sites but all my images are too big and get rejected or take too long to upload. I am new to photography and want to find out what the best practice is for Web image optimization.

From Jarred in Ocean Shores, WA

  1. I know that Rick Sammon travels all over the world and I love his portraits of people in their native lands. My question is how do you approach people from other cultures to get permission to make their portrait? I am always too shy to do that.

From Jessica in Center Valley, PA

  1. I am photographing by a lake near my home and there are lots of commercial buildings that I do not want to reflect in the lake. Short of learning how to remove these reflections in post, is there something I can do to remove the reflections in-camera? Is that what an ND filter does?

From Cathy in Inver Grove Heights, MN

  1. I’ve seen people on camera forums talking about super fast lenses - in the f/1.2 to f/1.8 range. Is it possible to use lenses like this wide open? Wouldn’t the depth-of-field be too narrow to accomplish much?

From Butch in Nashville, TN

  1. I want to photograph planes taking off and landing at my local airport. Do I need special permission from anyone to do that?

On this episode #11 of the “We Shoot Mirrorless” podcast for February 2018, Marco and Scott discuss these new products and mirrorless topics:

This show is sponsored by:

COSYSPEED - The fastest camera bags in the world.

and

PhotoShelter - Where photographers get work done!

  • Scott tells us what he has been up to and at which photography events he can be seen in the next couple of weeks.

  • We are giving away one COSYSPEED CAMSLINGER Streetomatic + camera bag on this show. Listen to find out who has won it.

  • Fuji announced their new top model camera the X-H1. This camera is a hybrid between a photo and video camera and Marco has received a lot of questions regarding this camera and he’ll give his honest opinion regarding some of the features and changes that Fuji has implemented in this camera.

B&H: https://bhpho.to/2FnzbjP

  • Olympus has announced the entry-level mirrorless PEN E-PL9 camera.

Amazon DE: http://amzn.to/2ogogRB

  • Panasonic has announced the compact GX9 camera with a 20MP m4/3 sensor and 90° tilting EVF. This could be a very nice street photography camera.

B&H: https://bhpho.to/2CAPlTJ

  • Panasonic has also announced the ZS200/TZ200 which features a 20MP 1” sensor, 5-Axis Image-Stabilization, and a 24-360mm equivalent field of view super zoom lens.

B&H: https://bhpho.to/2EHTXxk

  • Lensbaby announced the Burnside 35mm lens with variable vignetting. This lens introduces the Petzval lens features to a relatively wide 35mm f2.8 lens. It is supposed to be bright and sharp in the center with a nice color rendition - while a slider can introduce a variable amount of swirling bokeh and vignetting to the outer area of the frame. The Burnside 35mm is rendered for full-frame DSLR cameras, but it also comes in mirrorless mounts for Micro Four Thirds, Sony E, Fujifilm X and Samsung NX mount.

B&H: https://bhpho.to/2CBdF7U

  • DJI has announced yet another very desirable drone. The new DJI Mavic Air fits right in between the entry-level Spark and the top compact model Mavic Pro.

B&H: https://bhpho.to/2FjFFjy

  • Sony has developed a backlit CMOS sensor with global shutter, and Scott and Marco discuss if and how this could change the future of photography.

  • Scott will be at the Skylum booth at WPPI. Check out the Skylum LUMINAR 2018 software.

Mirrorless question of the month:

Dear Marco, dear Scott, As a big fan of your show I know that you are in favor of Fuji (Marco) and Olympus (Scott). Currently, I have the opportunity to test the Olympus om-d e-m1 mark ii for four weeks and I have to say this is a very nice camera. I like it very much. Now I would be very much interested to compare the Olympus with the Fuji X-T2 and I thought this would be a nice topic for your show as you know both cameras very well. I'm not so much interested in specs comparison but rather in daily practice and image quality etc. I would be very grateful if you could cover this topic in one of your next show. Thanks in advance and best regards Helmut (from Munich)

Mirrorless news of the month:

  • The Fuji XF10 is the newest compact camera from Fuji that seems to replace the now discontinued but highly praised by Marco X70 compact camera from Fuji. But is it a real update from the X70 or did Fuji make two steps back here?

  • Fujifilm also officially announced the new Fujinon XF 8-16mm f2.8 R LM WR Lens and the XF 200mm f2 R LM OIS WR Telephoto lens. Both lenses, the XF 8-16mm on the wide and the XF 200mm on the tele side can be game changers for professional photographers using the Fuji system.

  • Nikon is teasing the announcement of their full-frame mirrorless camera on August 23rd, 2018. The internet seems to be going crazy in expectation of this camera but is this hype justified or is Nikon late to the game?

Mirrorless question of the month:

Hi Marco, love the shows. I have a question that you might want to use on the show. I have a Fuji X-T1 and 18mm lens for my cityscape photography as a lightweight kit to take on work trips. However, I’ve always wanted an X100 and now the original ones are getting close to £300 - I’m tempted. So my question is, does the original X100 still have a place in 2018 as a travel and street camera.

Further to this, I was going to use the X100 for my black & white work (which I hear people say the old sensor is better? Or gives a different look?). And I want to use it for my long exposure photos, so autofocus speed isn’t really an issue. Many thanks!

  • The Fuji X-T3 is the latest upgrade to the popular X-T line. While the outer appearance of the camera is very similar to that of the previous version X-T2, under the hood there are a lot of speed and usability improvements that could make this 26MP APS-C camera even more popular than the previous version.

  • Canon announced their first full frame mirrorless camera, the Canon EOS R. Just two weeks after the announcement of the Nikon Z cameras, Canon followed with their mirrorless flagship camera that and the new RF mount. The camera has a 30.3 CMOS sensor with Digic 8 processor and dual pixel AF with 5.655 selectable AF points and a very good low light AF performance. Our friends at Camera Jabber wrote their first hands-on review and were impressed with the AF performance: https://camerajabber.com/canon-eos-r-review/

  • Panasonic has updated their popular fixed zoom LX100 camera with the new LX100 II. The unique multi aspect ratio 4/3 sensor together with the excellent Leica Vario-Summilux lens (with an EFV of 24-75mm at f1.8-2.8) and leaf shutter make this a silent compact camera that is ideal for travel and street photography. The external control dials for aperture, shutter speed, and exposure compensation add to the usability concept of this camera. The only thing that we would have liked to see is a tilt LCD to complete this concept.

  • Leica has added the M10-P to their M10 lineup. The new camera has a touch LCD, the quietest shutter of all M cameras and a few optical changes like the missing red dot.

Mirrorless question of the month:

With the increasing popularity of Mirrorless, and the expanding availability of native glass for them, do you think DSLRs (as they are today) will be obsoleted in the next year or two? Or do you think they will stick around for longer?

Episode summary: When is the right time to choose two prime lenses over one zoom lens? Additional questions regarding a better color management workflow. And how to set up the lighting in your photo editing workspace? These questions are answered in this  PPN Q&A episode #24.

Here are the questions that Marco answers in this episode:

  1. Hey Marco, just a quick general question: Would you prefer one camera with either a zoom lens or with two prime lenses?

Question from: Marcel, Vienna, Austria

  1. I have a few questions regarding the most recent Photography and Gear Show (#24) with Ross Grieve. (Link-> https://www.photopodcasts.com/podcasts/photography-and-gear-24-ppn-color-management-is-easy-with-ross-grieve

Though I love the results I get with my Colorchecker Passport, I've found it can be a bit cumbersome managing all of the profiles in LightRoom. Does Ross recommend keeping them all, or does he delete some of the more specific or odd ones after he's finished with the images from that shoot? If he does delete them, does he have an easy way to do it? Because all of the tutorials I read online were a bit involved.

He commented that he used the grey/white card part of the Colorchecker and also the part with all the colored squares. But the colored square part has a white square on it. Why do both?

Do either of you have any recommendations for the types of light bulbs and lamps used in the room where you do your post-processing? And where should the lamp be in the room, relative to the monitor?

Also, he commented on doing images on way home from a trip once, which was interesting because the light would continuously change conditions in the car. Did he feel confident in post-processing on the move because he had previously calibrated his device via the color management systems and therefore trusted that the device had it right even if it looked different to his eyes? Thank you so much for your time and expertise.

Mirrorless question of the month:

Hi Scott and Marco, I am currently shooting wildlife with a Nikon D500 and D7200, the D500 is everything have always wanted for a wildlife shooting camera. I use mostly a tamron 150-600 lens, however, at the end of the day, my arm is so tired if I do a lot of shooting. I have been seriously thinking about changing to either the oly OM_D Mll or the panasonic G9. From reviews, I have read either camera is a toss up for my needs. The panasonic feels great in the hand. My main question does one brand of lenses work better on the competitors camera than the other? Both brands seem to have good long lenses for wildlife Oh by the way I am from Clearfield, UT. and I have a sony a6500 for street shooting and for doing landscapes. I did try the sony 100-400 on it, and I did not care for that set up. Thanks for your help.

Inspirational Photo Book Pick of the Month:

“Ansel Adams: 400 Photographs”

Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/2w4Vc3j

B&H: https://bhpho.to/2BK09nA

Marco thinks that this is a book that belongs in a photo book collection because Ansel Adams was one of the greatest photographers of all times. But also because it chronologically shows his development as an artist. You can see how over time he looked into photographing different subjects like people, architecture, and plants but he never lost the passion for his nature landscape photos in B&W. And it shows i.e. different interpretations of Half Dome photos over the decades.

The book has  440 pages and weighs 4.4 pounds or about 2kg.

The More Gear Show topic this month is: Lenses - How to choose them and what to use them for.

Follow @Photopodcasts on Twitter

Email: scott@scottbourne.com with questions or use the form on our website

Special Guest: Marco Larousse (http://www.MarcoLarousse.com)

On this month’s More Gear Show, Scott invited PPN  co-founder Marco Larousse to talk about a very important photography gear topic: Lenses

  • The lens is probably the most important- and could be the longest lasting gear investment that you can make in photography. We discuss these topics regarding lenses on this show:
  • Lens philosophy - Should you buy fixed focal length primes or rather go for more versatile zooms? And what would be the reasons to choose either one?
  • Creativity - What are the creative reasons that you should consider when choosing a new lens? Consider changing perspective or using unusual focal lengths for an extraordinary look in your images.
  • Focal lengths - When to use what and how to get more use out of each lens for landscape, architecture, portrait, sports or bird photography.
  • To image stabilize or not to image stabilize - There are good reasons why your lens may not need an IS.

Marco’s favorite lens picks:

  1. Fujinon XF 16mm f1.4 R WR http://bhpho.to/2uPVpaZ with optional LH-XF16 metal lens hood http://bhpho.to/2utk1Uv

This More Gear Topic will be about shooting video from a photographer's point of view. Many of us photographers are scared of shooting video because we have grown up to capture the decisive moment in 1/1000s and edit that moment to perfection in the darkroom or nowadays in Lightroom or other photo editing software.

But we also pay good money for all of the latest and greatest video features in our photo cameras, so we might as well start to use them.

  • This is the 50th podcast episode at PPN and we invited a very special photographer for this episode: Jeff Widener is an American photojournalist who is best known for his famous “Tank Man” image from Beijing in 1989. Time magazine has selected this photo as one of the 100 most influential images of all time.

  • Marco picked Jeff Widener as the PPN inspirational photographer of the month, and Jeff shares the thrilling moments and the many coincidences that led to him taking the famous Tank Man photo and how it has changed his career.

  • But a world famous and powerful iconic image such as “Tank Man“ often reduces a photographer in public perception to that image. And while sometimes struggling with the nimbus of his famous image, Jeff has proven over and over again that he is a very talented photographer with a strong body of work. http://www.jeffwidener.com In this interview he shares what made him want to become a photographer, how he advanced in his career, and some of the funny and interesting experiences that he has made during his work as a photojournalist. https://www.instagram.com/jeff.widener/

Quotes from the interview:

"You don’t just take a picture - you have to feel it."

"I need more chaos in my images..."

"I’ll be 62 in August and I’m still trying to find solutions to problems that have been bugging me about my work for years."

Marco’s inspirational photo book of the month is called: “Modern Color” - by Fred Herzog.

Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/2vTUBDV

Published by Hatje Cantz (approx 320 pages): http://www.hatjecantz.de/fred-herzog-6837-1.html

Fred Herzog is mainly known for his photography in Vancouver where he focused primarily on capturing working-class life. He shot mainly on Kodachrome which marginalized him since most artists shot in B&W in the 1950’s and 1960’s.

But he has and his work has been recognized in recent years and I certainly want to introduce you to his work and his book Modern Color.

Herzog once said: “I wanted to show the world the way it is”

The book mainly consists of beautiful color photographs of the 1950’s to 1970’s and the color is simply stunning If you had never shot Kodachrome and want to get an idea why so many dearly miss it, you will instantly find out after opening this book.

This book should be on the very top of the list because it is a great example for those of you who may think that there is nothing interesting to photograph in your town anymore.

Looking at old images is always interesting, Cars, clothes, houses, no smartphones, but what do you think Fred saw when he stepped out of his door in 1958? It all looked to him like when you step out of your door today.

Study this book and see what caught his attention and convert it into today’s life. You may be amazed at the opportunities that lay before you.

The book covers a lot of different scenes, some that include humans, but if you are not comfortable with photographing humans without asking beforehand, there are plenty of images of cars, houses, posters, and signs that are just stunning.

Rank #19: We Shoot Mirrorless #8 | PPN | November 8th, 2017

Podcast cover
Read more

On this episode #8 “We Shoot Mirrorless” podcast episode for November 2017, Scott and Marco discuss these new products and mirrorless topics:

This show is sponsored by B&H: https://bhpho.to/2htc5AL

  • Scott shares his experiences from visit Photo Plus Expo in New York and Marco talks about his 48h trip to Berlin.

  • Sony announced a new camera. The a7rIII 42MP full frame camera comes with some nice speed, shutter and battery improvements.

https://bhpho.to/2hrBlXX

  • Sony also announced two new lenses for their mirrorless E mount. The Sony FE 24-105 f4 G OSS lens is a fairly light and versatile zoom. And the FE 400mm f2.8 GM OSS is still in development and is expected to launch in summer 2018.

https://bhpho.to/2Aw4Bk0

  • Olympus announced two new fast prime lenses from their PRO lineup. According to Scott and some early reviewers the M.ZUIKO Digital ED 17mm F1.2 PRO and M.ZUIKO Digital ED 45mm F1.2 PRO will be game changers for their light gathering and shallow depth of field and bokeh. The lenses can be pre-ordered now.

17mm f1.2: https://bhpho.to/2htbn6z

45mm f1.2: https://bhpho.to/2AvF4aM

  • Canon introduced the PowerShot G1 X Mark III. It is a fixed zoom lens camera that has a 24 MP APS-C sensor with dual pixel AF and Digic 7 processor and a fixed 24-72mm equivalent zoom lens with the fastest aperture between f2.8-5.6. It shoots bursts of up to 9fps and can record video at 1080/60p video. It weighs only 400g or 14oz and is like a fixed zoom lens version of the EOS M5 interchangeable lens camera.

https://bhpho.to/2hs5PJw

  • Hasselblad adds two new lenses to their lens roadmap. The XCD 80mm (63mm FF equivalent - aperture is still unknown) and the XCD 135mm f2.8 plus a dedicated 1.7x teleconverter.

http://www.hasselblad.com/lenses/x-system

  • Hasselblad has released a firmware update for the X1D.  This FW 1.19  update adds more options to make the camera more overall more customizable. They have also added support for V system lenses.

  • Leica now offers their 28mm full frame fixed focal length Leica Q camera in a silver edition.

https://bhpho.to/2AvDCVQ

  • Leica has resurrected the old Thambar-M 90mm f2.2 lens. A classic lens from the 1930s that is known for its extremely soft and blurry images and bubbly bokeh wide open. The main difference to the traditional model is that it comes with an M instead of a screw mount.

https://bhpho.to/2htvl0O

  • Fujifilm announced a square format Instax printer. The Share SP-3 SQ prints to the Instax square instant film and can print directly from your Fuji X camera or it can be used as a printer connected to your computer or smartphone. Each print takes about 13 seconds and each battery charge is good for about 160 prints.

https://bhpho.to/2Aw2Mnv

  • Nikon closes its camera and lens factory in China where about 2500 workers are employed. Nikon blames the rise of smartphones for this drastic step. Nikon also seizes their camera sales in Brazil.

Mirrorless question of the month:

Hi Scott and Marco, I’m a new listener and love your approach to do different topic shows in your feed each month. I am currently a Canon 5D MK III shooter and you guys have convinced me that I can switch to mirrorless cameras without sacrificing IQ.

I do mainly portrait and travel photography and I’m wondering if I could get away with buying a less expensive mirrorless camera (i.e. Olympus E-M10 MK II, Fuji X-A3 or Sony a6000) and rather spend extra money on pro-grade lenses?

Would I lose AF speed, accuracy, or IQ on those lower end models compared to the higher end ones?

Jim from Valdosta, Georgia
