  Back in August, thanks to a kind loan from Will Crockett over at DiscoverMirrorless.Com, I got to try the Fuji XPro-1 for a couple of days.  That story is here:http://thecameraforum.com/xpro-1/   I liked it very much.  Though I didn’t have time to shoot any low light, or “available darkness” subjects with it as I would […]

Here’s Chris Niccolls from TheCameraStore in Calgary, Alberta, & Nick Devlin, renowned  landscape photographer and columnist on Luminous Landscape, testing the Sigma DP1 and DP2 Merrill edition cameras.  While certainly not for everyone, these horrible little cameras produce absolutely stunning landscape photographs.  I particularly like Nick Devlin’s comment that shooting a DP Merrill is about the […]

Looking For Lenses from TheCameraForum on Vimeo.   There is something to be said for the hand feel of a good pro grade DSLR.  Strong.  Heavy.  Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound and still pull off ten frames a second without breaking a sweat.  Confidence is built into this equipment, the confidence […]

It isn’t every day that something new comes along in the way of a photography “gadget” that is much more than a novelty; a cute toy we all buy from time to time, normally on impulse .  I know I have a drawer full of them, and I bet you do too.  Once in a […]

And with the Sweep Panorama feature in Sony cameras, and similar features offered by some competitors, […]

Surf photographers are an interesting lot.  Heroes of the surf all, the best bravely move with fierce determination directly towards a force of nature that engulfs, mangles, and tries its best to break their bodies into many tiny broken pieces.  How do they manage to survive, let alone capture beauty in the blink of a […]

Since moving imaging has become so easy and inexpensive to produce and post, many photographers wonder if there is any room for still photography to exist and thrive as an art form.  Indeed, one of the purposes of this forum is to share ideas for creating art, and so we point you to the following […]

Our friend Professional Photographer Don Farrall has been experimenting with many new and different types of imaging.  Probably best known for his extensive collection of unusual stock photography, Don has begun exploring new areas ranging from creating VideoGraphs (still images that move) to moving paint using sound waves to create paint sculptures!  You can see […]

It feels like it.  Real […]
