Choosing a Telephoto Lens

This week, Nikon announced the new 800mm f/6.3S Phase Fresnel lens, which weighs in at a stunningly svelte 5.2 lbs. Although good telephoto lenses tend to be expensive, there are some good options out there that won’t completely break your bank. This week, we’ll discuss current options for long (400mm+) telephoto lenses and their pros and cons.

Small kits vs your smartphone camera

With both of us having some vacation travel recently, we started asking the question about the role of smaller camera systems, and whether or not it’s better to simply use your smartphone when traveling casually. Even “small” camera systems are too big to fit into a coat pocket easily, and the image quality from today’s newer smartphones is quite stunning, especially for tricky low-light situations.

The Image Doctors #132

We’re back, and this week we’re discussing photography locations in our home state of Colorado. Colorado is a beautiful place to photograph, but there’s some challenges associated with living above 5000′ elevation. We’ll offer some places we love to photograph, plus some locations that we generally avoid due to crowds and other pitfalls.
