While, of course, the most basic equipment necessities are obvious (a stable tripod, for instance), choosing the correct lens

The introduction of the Nikon D780 answers two burning questions. The first is: “Will there ever be a replacement for the still-popular-after-all-these-years Nikon D750?” The answer is “Yes.” The second question is: “Does the successful reception of Nikon’s Z-series mirrorless cameras put the kibosh on future DSLR development from Nikon?” The answer
Writing for Explora can be a bit like using a dating app for cameras. No matter how happy you are with your current situation, you are subjected to a nonstop parade of attractive alternatives—tempting you, teasing you, mocking your convictions. The urge to run off with a hot new body can be overwhelming. At least it has been for me since I hooked up with FUJIFILM’s GFX 100 Medium Format Mirrorless Camera. Is it love? Is it lust?
