Amazon Spheres in Seattle

Today was the second time that I’ve been able to get into the Amazon Spheres. We got our tickets online about a month ago, and today was perfect weather for it – rainy and grey. Last time, I brought along a wide angle lens and shot HDR, and I was really pleased with the shots. ...

A Review of the Panasonic S1R When Shooting Sports

Before today’s shoot… The only sport that I shoot on a frequent basis is karate (at the dojo where I train) – usually belt tests (like today) and tournaments. I primarily use a Sony a9 and 24-70mm f/2.8 GM lens. That combo really does everything that I need, and it does it spectacularly well. Today’s ...

Taking the Panasonic 24-70mm f/2.8 Out For a Spin

The last two days have been quite busy with the family (as well as moving my blog to a new server), so I haven’t had a chance to do any editing. I did have a chance to go out and do some shooting though. These are images straight out of the camera, but they illustrate ...

Panasonic 24-70mm f2.8 Continuous Eye Autofocus 4K 24P Test on the S1R

Just got the new 24-70mm f/2.8, and I couldn’t wait to see how it works for video. Curious? Me too! Let’s find out together – check out the video.

Panasonic S1R + Lumix 50mm f1.4 Continuous Eye Autofocus Test – w/ Bad Hair and Acne

I hadn’t intended on making a video this weekend, but wanted to do a quick test after seeing the impressive autofocus of the S1H on Camera Conspiracies here on YouTube. What impressed me about watching the videos over there is that the Eye AF didn’t seem to pulse in and out like Panasonic’s Micro 4/3 ...

The Leica 75mm f/2 Summicron SL – Is It Worth The Cost?

First Day of 6th and 2nd Grade

Shot these with the Panasonic S1R and 70-200mm f/4 lens. I have mixed thoughts about this lens, but really need to use it more to establish a full opinion about it.

Sigma 45mm f2.8 for L Mount (on the Panasonic S1R) – Review

If I had to sum up the review of this lens in one word, it would be “meh.” It’s sharp enough at f/4 and higher, but at f/2.8 the lens is soft and disappointing – especially as you get closer to your subject. Build wise, it feels cheap and extremely light. It’s a decent lens, ...

Puyallup Fair

I spent all day shooting with the Sigma 45mm f/2.8 L Mount lens. All of these photos are also featured in my review. Here’s the link. All photos are straight out of the camera without any edits.

Sigma 35mm f/1.2 On the Panasonic S1R in Continuous Face Detect Autofocus

Testing out the Sigma 35mm f/1.2 L mount lens on the S1R – How is it for video at f/1.2 in continuous autofocus? Tough call, very shallow depth of field. I do think that the background is pulsing though. For accurate, non-pulsing, face detect video, I’ll stick with the Nikon Z6, but if you’re manual ...

Sigma 35mm f/1.2 L Mount – Second Outing

Bokeh! You want 35mm? How about bokeh? How about close focusing? Well, that seems to be what this lens is made for. Today we were out in Tacoma at the Point Defiance rose and dahlia garden. It was broad / harsh daylight, the backgrounds were cluttered, and too much depth of field would have made ...

Milton Days with Karate Edge

This past weekend was the Milton Days parade. This is an annual event in which the karate school that I attend participates. It’s the largest showing of the school’s karate students (other than the Yakima tournament) year round. It’s also the single largest recruiting event the school does. Many students volunteer their time running the ...

Milton Days

First outing with the Sigma 45mm f/2.8 L-Mount lens on the Panasonic S1R.

Cardboard Sledding at Triangle Park

Tonight was my first time using the new Sigma 35mm f/1.2 L mount lens. My first impressions of this lens is that the build quality is not on par with the Panasonic branded lenses. All of the L mount Panasonic lenses feel more solid and sturdy than the Sigma 35mm. The Panasonic lenses feel like ...
