This week, we’re back from Jason’s Badlands photo safari, and we’ll share our experiences from the trip. You can see all of Jason’s upcoming safaris here.
Viltrox 56mm f/1.4 DX Lens for Nikon Z
Rick recently purchased a new autofocus lens from Viltrox to use wiht his DX format Nikon Z cameras. The 56mm f/1.4 DX lens in Z-mount offers a solid build, excellent image quality, and fast autofocus. It also has an aperture ring, which makes it fun to use with the Nikon Z fc mirrorless camera.
We found that although all three of these programs did a good job removing noise, there were some significant differences in workflow between the products. Listen to hear which of these tools came out on top, and why!
Earlier this week, we took a trip to the summit of Mt. Evans, Colorado, where we photographed the local marmots and pika. We’ll share our experience with you, including our camera settings and what worked, and what didn’t work.
Between supply chain disruptions and chip shortages, new electronics (like digital cameras) can be tough to find. For example the Nikon D850 hasn’t been in stock for months, and was recently rumored to be discontinued (spoiler alert: it wasn’t). This week, we took a look at some of the options out there for used cameras, and identified a number of models that represent tremendous value.
We each received the new Nikon Z fc mirrorless camera this week, so we’re sharing our hands-on first impressions. We’ll go through the features we like, and discuss a few areas for improvement. Also, we’ll compare the Nikon Z fc to the Nikon Z 50, and discuss which camera we’d recommend for our listeners.
