Digital photography is a fantastic learning tool because it provides us with immediate feedback on our photos. This week, we’re discussing all those times where we learned from our mistakes in the field and at the computer, and we share situations where we’ve struggled to improve our shots.
This week, we took a short field trip to do some evening/night sky photography here in Colorado. It was a great refresher for both of us, as we had to make some pretty important changes to our camera settings for night photography. We also tested the new Nikon 20mm f/1.8S lens for night sky shooting.
The single most important component of a camera is the twelve inches behind it”
Happy New Year! We’ve made it to 2021, and we hope all of our listeners are safe and healthy. This week, Rick and Jason look to draw inspiration from the quotes of famous photographers, and discuss their resolutions for the new year.
This week, we got our hands on the newly released 50mm f/1.2S Nikkor Z lens. We both had the opportunity to test this lens and compare it to our other 50mm Nikon lenses. In addition to our impressions on optical performance, we’ll discuss what kind of photographer would benefit from this impressive lens.
Many thanks to our friends at B&H Photo for loaning us a production copy of this lens to evaluate.
Most of our listeners probably know about the advantages of RAW capture over JPEG, but many cameras also offer a variety of options for configuring RAW files. This week, we’ll discuss the differences between compressed and uncompressed RAW formats, bit depth, and also take a look at Nikon’s smaller RAW file options in cameras like the Nikon D850 and Z6/Z7 mirrorless cameras.
