What does black and white photography mean to us?
Back in the heyday of the world of film, black and white photography is the basic. It is the beginning of photograhy, and of vital importance.
I still remember the days when I started to learn to see things through the lens and get prints from processing and developing films in the darkroom. Although today many of us have abandoned film and know nothing about the whole process, thanks to websites dedicated to the black and white films such as Ilford, we can still get some handy guides readily online.
Not long ago I mentioned about how delighted I was to find the Book tab in Adobe Lightroom 4.
This is an all-in-one solution: original Adobe Lightroom full photo processing feature integrated with Blurb bookmaking capability. Recently after giving a few tries, I have finally made a photo book using this function in the current free beta version.
Canon has just announced two new prime lens and one L series zoom lens.
Most users will welcome the zoom EF 24-70mm F2.8 II USM as it is the second generation featuring the same wide aperture, lighter in weight but bigger the filter size. It follows the same Canon L series quality and comments from one user’s initial impression is that it is sharp at all focal lengths.
Can the Fujifilm X-Pro 1 beat the Leica M9?
That is an interesting question. You may say they are of different breeds; and of course of different values of money.
Some claim that Fujifilm X-Pro 1 is a poor man’s Leica. I do not agree as it is not cheap compared with some DSLRs.
The performance of Canon G1X has created a lot of interest, but do you agree it is the best compact camera (Canon Rumors)?
DxO Mark gives a score of 60 to this camera and ranks it against Panasonic GH2.
Not a high score when compared to DSLR but a giant step forward from the range of compact camera.
Adobe Lightroom 4 beta is now available for download. Good news for potential and current users at the start of 2012.
Lightroom 3 has been my main software to handle with all my photos. It helps me to organise photos into categories, to do everything related to post-processing, and is always a simple (but still very comprehensive and powerful) version of Photoshop.
