These posts contain selections of photos I’ve taken with the various cameras and lenses I review (And I only review gear that I’ve personally tested and used). In many cases, they’re designed to go alongside my detailed hands-on reviews.
Sigma has two zoom lenses at the 150-600mm focal lengths. Here are some sample images I’ve shot with the Sports version, which is bigger, heavier, and much more expensive than the Contemporary version, but also offers much improved optical performance.
Here’s a collection of images shot with the Sony a7R IV full-frame mirrorless camera under different lighting conditions and with different settings to give a sense of how it performs in real-world shooting.
Sony’s FE 12-24mm f/4 G lens is an ultra-wide-angle zoom lens designed for their full-frame cameras. For an unusually wide lens, it’s remarkably true and sharp and doesn’t suffer from the usual optical flaws you’d expect.
I’ve been out shooting with the brand-new Sony a7R IV, the full-frame flagship model in Sony’s mirrorless camera range. Here are some side-by-side examples taken through the ISO range from ISO 50 to ISO 102400.
I’ve recently been out shooting with the new Lumix S 24-105mm ƒ/4 on the also-new Lumix S1 full-frame mirrorless camera. Here are some images taken with the combination with an emphasis on examples showing how the lens performs in real-world shooting.
I’ve been out shooting with the new Ricoh GR III high-end compact camera. For good reason, the GR cameras have long had a cult following among street photographers and travel photographers. Here’s a collection of high-resolution sample images I’ve taken with it.
This is a selection of photos I’ve taken with the Sony 18-135mm ƒ/3.5-5.6 E-Mount lens, a highly versatile zoom lens that’s an especially good pairing with cameras in Sony’a Alpha range such as the a6000, a6400, and a6500.
The Sony E 18-135mm ƒ/3.5-5.6 is a popular choice for APS-C mirrorless cameras like the new Sony a6400 or the Sony a6000. And it makes for a versatile zoom lens for everyday travel photography. Here are some practical examples of its zoom range.
The Sony HX99 compact camera packs a massive zoom into a tiny camera as well as including some features you might not expect in a camera of this type. Here are some photos I’ve taken with the HX99 to provide some practical examples of how it performs under real-world shooting conditions.
The Fujifilm (Fujinon) XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS zoom lens, often included with Fujifilm X-series cameras such as the X-T4 and X-T30, is better than your average kit lens. Here are some practical examples of its zoom range from 18mm to 55mm.
The Sony E 16mm ƒ/2.8 lens is fast and tiny, making it a very attractive option for travel photography. Here’s a collection of travel photos to give a sense of how it performs under real-world conditions.
The Sony RX0 is tiny and looks like an action camera that’s built for shooting video, but it’s a surprisingly capable stills camera as well. Here are some example photos I’ve taken with it to give a sense of its real-world performance.
The cameras in Sony’s Alpha range are well-known for their superb sensors. I’ve been shooting with the latest model, the Sony a7 III, at high ISOs to find out how well it performs in real-world shooting in low-light conditions at high ISOs. Here are the results and some examples.
The Sony 50mm ƒ/1.4 ZA lens is one of Sony’s high-end lenses. On full-frame sensors it offers a normal perspective and is especially good for low-light and selective focus shooting. Here are some sample photos I’ve taken with it.
The Sony a7r iii has a well-earned reputation for boasting an extraordinarily good sensor, and it has an ISO range from 50 up through 102400. I shot some real-world examples through the ISO range to see how the ISO settings compare side by side.
Tamron’s 28-300mm lens is designed as a versatile all-in-one zoom for full-frame sensor cameras, the type of lens you might choose to leave on your camera most of the time for things like travel photography. Here’s my hands-on review.
