Aurora HDR 2019 – Single Image Processing?
In a previous post, we have discussed how every Travel Photographer should use HDR in their photography “HDR – An essential tool in Travel Photography”. As mentioned, many people steer right away from the HDR technique, however, this doesn’t necessarily mean that you can’t take your single images and really give them a “pop” using HDR software such as Aurora HDR 2019.
Review: Peak Design “Slide” Camera Strap
The majority of people that purchase a new camera will use the supplied camera strap or buy a cheap neck strap that may look and feel more comfortable. I mean… how important is a camera strap anyway!! Most people would say it wasn’t important at all ….well they’re wrong. Take it from us (and we are Professional Travel Photographers) that the humble camera strap is crucial in the difference between not only how you shoot but also how your neck feels at the end of a long day. For years, we used the “comfortable” neck strap that was extremely comfortable at the beginning but by the end of the day we were relieved to finally be able to remove it. Sure we could have had the strap over our head and sitting on one shoulder but this made it impractical when taking shots on the go.
Review – Sony FE 16-35 F4 Zeiss lens (SEL1635Z)
Back in December 2014 we made the decision to move from Nikon to the Sony mirrorless camera system and bought the Sony A7r. This camera is 36mp of sheer delight. We purchased it with the FE 24-70 F4 Zeiss lens which has been an absolute dream to work with. Despite the fact that DXO Mark rates this camera’s sensor behind the Nikon D810 and Nikon D800E by the narrowest of margins, the size and weight of this camera more than makes up for the 3rd ranking. We guess this is the reason why so many professional photographers are now flocking to the mirrorless cameras systems and selling all their DSLR gear. Having tested the camera and lens thoroughly over the last 8 months we decided that it was so good that we were ready to purchase the expensive FE 16-35 F4 Zeiss and FE 70-200 F4 Zeiss lenses. This review will cover the wide angle FE 16-35 F4 Zeiss lens. We will review the other lens in another post.
