Reviews of photography products that enhance the enjoyment of taking pictures. Published frequently but irregularly.
3 June 2013
In this recurring column, we'll highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at a Fujifilm X-E1 review, a Zeiss Touit review, birds of paradise and a page of photography links to explore.
- Jim Hughes, former editor of Camera 35 and founding editor of Camera Arts magazine, reviews the Fujifilm X-E1 at The Online Photographer. "No matter the lens mounted, the camera itself exceeds my expectations," he writes.
- Roger Cicala takes a look at the Zeiss Touit, the 32mm f1.8 on a Sony NEX-7 in particular. Lloyd Chambers has some 12mm Tuit sample shots from a NEX-7 at his blog taken from his review of the lens.
- Tim Laman's birds of paradise are on display at the N.Y. Times Lens blog. Laman is, the blog notes, "the first person to photograph all of the birds of paradise species in the wild."
- Light Stalking has a long page full of photography links to "the best tutorials, special features, collections, great photography and interesting blogs." Bring food and water.
