Do you feel and see emotion in photography?

Many lenses have purpose and with that purpose can bring emotion. That emotion can be in the type of photographer or the type of photograph that is captured. The key to this emotion can also be found in the right lens selection.

Each lens can focus on any specific area whether its Macro for the up close and intimate or a wide for the sweeping nature feeling landscapes or the handy prime focal length for the aggressive street photographer not fearful of taking on the challenges of the street and last but not least the telephoto for the shy and or stand offish photographer trying to capture that timid animal in the wild.

I consider Canon FD to be phenomenal lenses and this project is not only of rediscovery but a reminder of the exceptional quality and performance.  The introduction of mirrorless cameras has made the impossible possible. Many of these beautiful lenses were discarded by many with the introduction of the Canon EF mount  lenses that are widely used today in the photographic world. But no more will they sit idle waiting to be used now is the time to dust off the lens caps and put these beautiful lenses back to work.

Do you feel emotion with photography produced by a certain lens and what is your favourite?

[•] K&F Concept Camera Bag Review



With a new bag comes a new bag review. For a long long time well 12 years in fact I have used a LowePro version camera bag in the same style as this K&F Concept bag.


The K&F version has two plastic pads on the base for when you put the bag down on the ground to protect the base and the fabric of the bag including the gear inside which I really like. The outside front has clips for a tripod to hold centre of the bag while walking. Balance in a bag is the single most important feature.



There are some details I like about the bag including the cute little embroidered tripod symbol. LowePro as a camera bag is a forgotten dream the prices are just sickening when you can purchase this bag for $75 and the build quality I would consider substantially better. The shoulder straps are firm and hold their shape and on the back feels very comfortable. The front pocket holds a Surface Pro tablet with ease.


The zippers can be undone with one hand so if your a one handed photographer this will definitely cater for you.


The bones of the bag allow for two decent DSLR’s. In the photo you can see with a little customisation of the support pads you can fit a Fujifilm GFX50s with 32-64mm lens. Up top is a Sony A7II mirrorless for the little projects along with two primes lenses. And other sections hold a dust blower, Lens hood and SD card holder case.



Extras include waterproof dust cover and would you believe a gift zip bag containing a dust blower, spray bottle for lens cleaning and cleaning cloth. Such a thoughtful well presented bag for any photographer.


Overall Rating 10/10

This is one of the best bang for buck bags around including build quality compared to any other bag on the market.

If you get this bag you will be filled with joy.

Disclosure: I am not funded by this camera gear company. Just a one man band doing the far and in between gear reviews on items I have purchased.

[•] Mirrorless Cameras and the benefits of Adaptor’s

Mirrorless AdaptorsI’m in the process of building an Adobe Lens Profile correction for Sony A7 series for Canon FD lens when you RAW edit. So keep following as it is one big epic project that I think many Sony mirrorless and Canon FD users would love to have.

Mirrorless cameras like the GH4 and A7 Series are now known as MSLR (Mirrorless Single Lens Reflex) camera’s and have some unique advantages over the common DSLR. Adapters like Metabones and Commlite expand the use of lens selection making mirrorless a viable option. Sony just pushed into second place as a real contender to fight for the top spot as best full frame camera to own. Do you prefer full frame mirrorless in the Sony or the Panasonic MFT (Micro Four Thirds) cameras now hitting the scene.. It really is a rough call at the moment and both have advantages and disadvantages. For me camera choice is a balance of which one for video and which one for photography but boy do these cameras make a shooter feel spoilt. Cameras really have come a long way since film days and those film days are really paying of for those who kept older lenses. For me to be able to use legacy glass like Canon FD and Leica M make these cameras shine.

I recommend Metabones adaptors for their quality. Don’t waste your time on cheaper eBay adaptors they can damage your camera or lens. Are prone to fall apart with screws unwinding.

More to follow on this topic coming soon to my YouTube channel will be a detailed video on this adaptor saga. Just Subscribe and join me on the journey of photography talk.

In this photo the adaptors are:
Commlite EF to E Mount
Metabones Canon FD to E Mount
Metabones Canon FD to MFT
Metabones Leica M to E Mount
Panasonic Leica M to MFT
