Osmo Pocket – Pro Fun We have fallen in love with Osmo Pocket / Controller Wheel for its fun and quality. As you can see above, it’s really, really tiny which is great but its quality is huge! Because it has 4k quality and can literally fit in your pocket, you can shoot in tight places you might have not attempted before. Brent is up in a Cessna 140 shooting the sample video below. Ever been in a 140, tight quarters! When didn’t have the filter set when we shot this, but do now and that takes care of the prop slop. It’s so much fun, it’s a great tool to add to your...

Big, Wide World … The Two Click Pano

We are so fortunate to experience a big, grand world and in this case, a Sierra Wave over Walker Lake! The new Nikkor Z14-30 does a beautiful job of bringing that all in and with its wide angle of view and ability to accept an 82mm filter. The possibilities are nearly endless. It’s a favorite lens of mine now because of this. With that said, I have had the good fortune to witness a few sunrises/sunsets that 14mm alone wasn’t able to capture it all. I turned to a simple, two-click pano to bring those moments home. No tripod, just hand-hold, click with about a 20-30% overlap and then simple assembly in ACR using its Panorama function. It brings the memory home and that’s what it’s all...

Amazing New Nikkor Z85f1.8

I had the good fortune to spend the morning at the Combat Air Museum shooting with the new Nikkor Nikon Z85f1.8 and man, was it fun! I shot the entire time at f/1.8 cause, way buy a fast lens if you’re not going to shoot fast?! It’s small, lightweight and a blast to shoot with cause of its very narrow DoF with it’s very crispy sharpness, it makes things snap in the viewfinder. All the great detail at the Combat Air Museum was the perfect proving grounds for me to determine real fast this is one helluva lens! The Nikon Z85f1.8 is a lens most think of as a portrait lens (though it’s much, much more) so I wanted to shoot a portrait or two with it. At the Combat Air Museum there is Stu, a great model, reenactor who looks like an Air Force General so I placed him in front of the museum’s F-84 Thunderstreak for his portrait. Because I was shooting with the Z6 I could...

SnapBridge is a Killer Tool!!

Nikon’s SnapBridge just recently brought it into incredibly important tool! There were four of us around the breakfast table this mourning. We’d been out shooting in the cold shroud of morning fog shooting on the coast with our Zs. We brought the cameras to breakfast so I could test how well Snapbridge brings Nef’s into the iPhone. Within seconds, literally, all cameras were connected to phones, folks were scrolling their images and selecting a Nef to download. Then that file was taken into Lightroom Mobile and finished. Some did tests to send the finish file to the Cloud, others saving to the phone. It was success all the way around!!! It sounds so trivial but this can make my life is a tad easier. No, this won’t be my new workflow but Yes, this will permit me to deliver to clients an images in a snap! And that’s what it’s all about! Camera Notes: The photos here where taken with Z7 / Z24-70f2.8, ISO Lo1, f/22, 49sec exposure and...
