Tamron SP AF60mm F2.0 Di II LD [IF] Macro Review

Thomas Berg (twberg) on August 4, 2010

=- \4

This review of the Tamron 60mm f/2 Macro/Portrait lens for Nikon DX cameras is completely subjective and concentrates on practical aspects such as usability,  bokeh and field‐of‐view characteristics. It concentrates on the "hands‐on" aspect instead of the intricate performance data used by authors who emphasize resolution figures and lab‐style technical aspects determined through the use of equipment designed to gauge, measure and analyze lens performance.

Markins M10/M20 Ball Heads Review

Darrell Young (DigitalDarrell) on July 3, 2010

A ball head is a ball head -- right? I used to think so! I've always had the attitude that it really doesn't matter what ball head you use, since all it does is clamp the camera in the position you want. I figured any ball head that was big enough to handle the weight was good, and all that really matters is the price. Read more...

Arca Swiss B1 Monoball Head Review

Ed Alexander (edwinalexander) on June 28, 2010

I first read about Arca-Swiss B1 in an early-1989 Modern Photography issue. That was when the Monoball B1 had just come out replacing the previous model, simply called Mono Ball. Why was the replacement called B1? There were two replacements to the popular Monoball, the B1 and the larger B2, which was actually roughly the same size as the original Monoball. Read more...

Epson Perfection V750-M Pro Scanner review

Martin Turner (Martin Turner) on June 11, 2010

At less than the price of a Nikon 35mm transparency scanner, the Epson 750 offers almost equally good scans from negatives or slides up to large format, as well as excellent A4+ scans from prints or graphic originals. This is a scanner which fits very well into a graphic design studio, with smooth, even and (relatively) rapid performance. Read more...

Lensbaby 2.0 Review II.

Jason Odell (DrJay32) on May 30, 2010

I first heard about the Lensbaby about a year ago. I was casually surfing photo-related sites on the Internet. Strange, I thought — an accessory that deliberately causes images to be out of focus! With all talk these days about high-speed autofocus lenses with the most refined optics and technology, the Lensbaby represents a technological leap—backwards! And that, my friends, was refreshing.

Storm Cases Review

A while back in an issue of the American Outdoor Photographer magazine, I saw a notice for a new brand of hard case for photo gear. The product, called Storm Case, is what appeared to be a possible rival to the well-established Pelican brand. After going to the Storm Case site, I was fairly impressed by their cases and what the said that they offered. Read more...

Sigma 500mm f/4.5 EX HSM Review

Jason Odell (DrJay32) on May 20, 2010

I'll admit, spending twice as much as my F5 for a lens was an intimidating feeling. Talk about credit card anxiety! But “big glass” doesn’t come cheaply, and I really wanted to get closer to wildlife, especially small birds. I carefully did my homework to decide on a lens that would get the job done, would be of professional caliber, and wouldn’t completely bankrupt me. When the dust settled, I got the Sigma 500mm f/4.5 EX HSM. Read more...

Color Management and the Epson Stylus Pro 7900 Printer

Hal Becker (HBB) on May 7, 2010

Over the last several years, I have progressed through a number of Epson large format printers. I have included the following brief overview of color management because I believe that anyone getting into large format printing needs to commit the time necessary to develop a personal color management philosophy, work flow, and operational procedures if they are to produce optimum results.
