Venus Optics Laowa 12mm f/2.8 Zero-D Lens Review. The Venus Optics Laowa 12mm f/2.8 Zero-D Lens features nearly the widest rectilinear (not a heavily-barrel-distorted fisheye lens) focal length available in a full frame compatible lens (a pair of 11mm options currently hold that record) and while that extreme wide angle of view alone creates a great attraction for this lens, the wide f/2.8 aperture makes this lens exceptional.

Venus Optics Laowa 12mm f/2.8 Zero-D Lens Review

As of review time, no other full frame lens wider than 14mm has an aperture wider than f/4. The value of this lens continues well beyond these features – how about the near-zero linear distortion hinted at by the "Zero-D" in the name? Currently, no other 12mm lens option has so little distortion. The small size and the quality build of this lens are additional desireables. If you find those attributes interesting, you may have found your lens – as long as only the most basic lens features are required. Focal Length. Levensgrote pop op 7 mm karton.

Everything you do in any field of photography and retouching starts with an idea, but to achieve your vision, you must know how to shape, control, and modify the light that illuminates your subject.

Product Photography & Retouching: Light, Shadows & Reflections

As a product photographer and retoucher, understanding the fundamentals of light and how it interacts with different surfaces is critical to my work. Hard Light & Soft Light You may already know the basics of such qualities of light as its hardness and diffusion, but to become an expert in product photography and retouching you must not only understand these basics, you must also know why and when to use each type of light (hard and soft) to their best advantage. Soft light is a good solution in many situations: portraits, fashion, beauty, architecture, and products. It is typically a flattering and diffused light that can illuminate your subject evenly without creating harsh shadows. Original shot Edited product Final image.

The all new Formatt Hitech Firecrest 16 Filter review - part 1 - BWVISION - Black and White fine art photography and long exposure photography

This is a single Infrared Neutral Density Filter that reduces the light with 16 stops – which is a worlds first by the way. As per usual you have the option of a 100mmx100mm square filter or a circular screw-in (72mm, 77mm and 82mm). I’ve already mentioned the existence of this filter in the book I wrote with Julia Anna Gospodarou “From Basics to Fine Art” but had not tested the filters at the time of writing the book. In this review I will test the 77mm circular screw-in filter only and compare it with the very reliable and trusty B+W ND filter that always has been the to go filter in a time B+W and a few other brands like Hoya and Singh-Ray were leading the market.

If you’ve visited this site before, you might already know that this lens is part of my “Ultimate Prime Kit,” which consists of the 14mm ƒ/2.8, the 23mm ƒ/1.4, and the 56mm ƒ/1.2. These lenses all have excellent handling traits with one potential exception being the 14mm ƒ/2.8. Some people were finding the aperture ring a little loose on the 14mm. In fact, the first one I got was a little loose. Fortunately, I was able to exchange for one that is nice and tight.

What is a bridge camera, and should you buy one? Our complete guide to bridge cameras (aka superzooms or ultrazooms) has the answers. Bridge cameras are so named because they were designed to bridge the gap between DSLRs and compact cameras, offering a similar user experience and level of manual control. In fact the newer category of Compact System Cameras (CSCs) arguably better deserves that title these days but bridge cameras have been around a lot longer and the name has stuck, although they're also known as superzooms, or ultrazooms.

Bridge camera vs DSLR: spot the differenceThe Bridge camera does resemble a DSLR in appearance, and the casual observer may think that it is one. It has the same prominent handgrip, a raised hump above the lens (usually with a hotshoe) which, on a DSLR, would house the prism, and a large protruding lens on the front. Firstly, the lens on a bridge camera is not removable. Top 10 Best Ultra Zoom Bridge Digital Cameras 2013. Updated October 2013.
