I’ve published more than 9000 blog posts, magazine articles and podcasts and NEVER – EVER did I expect I’d be writing a review like this one. Hold on to your horses. I love a SONY camera. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know. Surprised the heck out of me too. But just because (and only because) I am at a stage in my career where size, weight and image quality have to be just right, I am able to say I love the Sony a7C.
They are both very good and while the Sony is more expensive, it’s not like it’s overpriced. You get good value there for your money. BUT…

Lumix sent me a GH6 and the 200 f/2.8 to test on my Alaska trip last month. I have barely even heard of this lens so I was excited to try it.

(I’ll also talk a little about the new Olympus Camera…) You might know that I am a former […]
New product from Platypod coming.
If you want a lightweight tripod (this review covers only the legs and at the current $419 (At B&H Photo) price a ball head is not included) that goes six feet tall but yet weighs less than five pounds, you owe the Oben CFT-6394 a good look
of shots will I get now that I used to miss because I was burdened by all that gear I used to haul around? And so far, as I’ve been downsizing, the answer has been simple – I get more than I give up.
