Few camera lenses helped to define a brand name more than Nikon’s NIKKOR 105mm f/2.5. Produced from 1959 to 2005, this portrait lens underwent five updates during the course of its production run, including a complete makeover, in 1977. Considered by many photographers to be one of the sweetest portrait lenses ever made, it shouldn’t be a surprise to learn it was the very lens used by Steve...

As my fellow parents may attest, working from home means much more than doing my day job and participating in a few Zoom meetings. Throughout the day, my home becomes an office, a school, an indoor playground, and a dine-in movie theater in which we happen to live. This means that being tethered to one spot with my mid-tower desktop computer isn’t as practical as it once was. Although my desktop...

Wide-angle field of view, compact design, impressively sharp: If I could distill this review of the new FUJIFILM GF 30mm f/3.5 R WR lens into a few select points, that would be it. Luckily, though, I can talk a bit more about FUJIFILM's newest lens for its mirrorless medium format camera systems....

Apple has been very busy. We’re only halfway through June and already it has launched what feels like a year’s worth of new products, including the latest models of the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air. And while I’ve tested the MacBook Pro, and can confirm that it is indeed excellent, I still contend that my favorite computer isn’t really a computer at all. It’s the...

This isn’t the article I planned to write when I was offered an opportunity to review the new Arc from Sonos. Soundbars aren’t a new concept, in fact this is Sonos’s 4th-generation model following the highly lauded...

My writing career began in the late 1990s when Mike McNamara, the Executive Editor of Popular Photography magazine, offered me an opportunity to write a monthly column. At first, I was fine working after hours on my Apple Power Macintosh G3 desktop, which featured a speedy-at-the-time 266MHz 5600rpm Motorola CPU, a 4GB hard-drive, Mac OS 8, and a choice of a floppy drive, a Zip Drive, or a CD...

It's 2020 and full-frame imaging is now part of the norm. It seems as though up until not too long ago, full frame was a rare and exotic bird, but now is among the most common and expected technologies for a high-end, even middle-of-the-road, camera to have.

Over the years, I’ve dabbled with many cameras and many film formats. I’ve used pretty much everything from 8 x 10" view cameras to half-frame 35mm cameras and ended up settling on 6 x 7 for the majority of my work. Somehow, though, after all of this time, I managed to skip the 645 format entirely. I didn’t do this intentionally; it just never seemed to fall into place. The cameras and lenses are...
