• Nikon Z50 + Viltrox 13mm F1.4 Z Lens Astrophotography

    Decided to test the Nikon Z50 + Viltrox AF 13mm F1.4 Z mount lens for some astrophotography. In my recent review of this wide angle Viltrox 13mm lens for the Nikon Z50, Zfc and Z30 cameras, I mentioned I was looking forward to testing it out for astro. Found a couple of dark locations near me and had relatively good conditions with cold weather and clear skies. I got up at 3am and headed out with this little astro combo. With the release of the new APS-C Nikon Z30, again this Viltrox lens will prove very popular for those wanting a budget wide angle lens to vlog, do landscape, architecture,…

  • Nikon D850 vs Nikon Z7 Landscape Photography

    Decided to do a comparison test, Nikon D850 vs Nikon Z7 landscape photography. I put both cameras side by side, exact same settings, same composition. I was very interested to see how they would both perform in a landscape photography situation. Given they are both 45MP cameras, I was surprised with this Nikon D850 vs Z7 test to see some of the findings. The location in the video was at the small seaside town of Bargara in Queensland, Australia. Sunrises are one of my fav things to photograph and I was lucky on this morning of the test to get some nice colour in the clouds. Hope you enjoy the…

  • Nikon Z7 Long Exposure Landscape Photography

    Sometimes I run into bad weather when out with my Nikon Z7 doing landscape photography. That’s a given doing that type of photography, I’m not complaining. But the main thing is you have to photograph for the conditions you’re in. The Z7 is weather sealed, yes. Weather proof, NO! Always keep your cameras within arms reach when filming in dangerous locations, this is why! When I was taking the shot to begin with there was this object that kept bobbing in and out of the water in front of me which I kept mistaking for a shark. Never can be too careful around this spot. There are a lot of…

  • Nikon D850 Chasing the TINY Double-barred Finch

    In this video I give chase to the illusive little double-barred finch with my Nikon D850. These guys move so fast only stopping very briefly to chat to one another or have a bit of a scratch or prune of their feathers. They hide and feed in dense foliage of long grass, weeds and bush scrub. Patience is the key and you have to wait for them to come to you after placing yourself in their habitat. I team the D850 together with my Nikon 80-400mm lens, a versatile lens for moving quickly and lightly. It took some time for this video to eventuate because I really thought I wasn’t…

  • Nikon 16-35mm F4G ED VR Lens REVIEW

    I have had this Nikon 16-35mm AF-S F4G ED VR lens for over five years. In this video I give my thoughts on it and also show example images I have captured from traveling around the world. I mainly use this Nikon 16-35mm for landscape photography. The lens has been a trusty companion and I’d also recommend it for things like real estate and architecture photography. At 16mm you do get some vignetting, but that is very easy fixed with one click in programs like Photoshop and Lightroom. The clarity and colours from this 16-35mm is another bonus especially on my cameras like the D850 and D750. I use this…
