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 larger than those for 35mm, but the film format is smaller than 6 x 7. It’s either a happy medium or an awkward compromise, depending on how you look

Full-frame and medium-format mirrorless photo gear use has exploded in the past couple of years. Sony, Canon, Nikon, Fujifilm, Hasselblad, and even Panasonic either just launched or will soon have some big-sensor cameras coming out. After years of companies and photographers disagreeing about the merits of APS-C and Four Thirds sensors, it leads us to question of whether bigger really is better. The Obvious Answer Yes. All things being equal (remember this phrase, it is the all-important qualifier), the bigger the sensor, the better the

We’re offering our annual end-of-year listicle of a podcast a bit early, but it comes with a good deal more information than usual.

Created with an ever-growing collection of vintage cameras, a timeless aesthetic prevails, whether depicting a barren landscape in Utah or a motel room in Amsterdam. I interviewed Covey at his Brooklyn studio before he departed on another journey. Above photograph from Desert Speaks Photographs ©
