Fuji GW690III 90mm F/3.5 Camera Review

Check out my latest camera review for film lovers, this one took me two years to complete(!) It's the companion to the wide angle GSW690III.  Also available in the review are super high res samples!!

If you're looking for a little more resolution than what you're getting from your 35mm film cameras look no further!  The Fuji 'G' 6x9 series cameras are great, with enough resolution for really big prints, or future proofing on the coming 8k screens if you like to scan your pictures and look at them on your computer.

Watkins Glen State Park 1920s No. 1

Up for close inspection is a nice photograph of Watkins Glen State Park main entrance from the 1920s. I purchased a set of 8 1/2 x 6 1/2″ glass plate negatives off eBay, which included 11 images of the park, this one was probably the first picture, or the last, the others show landmarks along the way up.

I have …

Polaroid one step; great for budding artists

I'm always glad to see more instant analog cameras coming out, and now we can add the once very popular Polaroid One Step back to the current inventory of cameras that shoot out an image that develops by itself.  Of course there are Zink cameras, but they simply print from the digital camera memory, not from the actual scene or film from the camera; this difference is very important to a real artist.  As Polaroid correctly states on their boxes; It takes a moment and turns it into something you can hold, something you can share, something real!

A minor down side to all this fun; don't get to crazy with the shutter button, it'll cost you north of $2 a shot for good film.

Now more than 90+ lenses available for your Sony FE cameras

Sigma has two new lenses (14/1.8 and 24-70/2.8) with factory supplied adapters for Sony FE cameras; these new additions bring the total factory adapted lenses to 10+, and native FE system lenses to over 80.  We now have over 90 lenses to choose from for our Sony FE cameras; so is that enough? Unfortunately, I don't think so.  Most of the lenses are wide to mid length primes, with very few zoom telephoto options right now, and zero telephoto primes over 135mm.

New review lens

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The Sigma 30mm F/1.4 DC DN will be the first APS-C lens I’ve reviewed in almost three years.  I like the focal length on the smaller sensor, and the coverage is about 45mm in 135 format.

I’ll have some full resolution test shots up in a few days.…
