Harold ‘Doc’ Edgerton, a Master of High-Speed Photgraphy

Even though he hadn’t been a photographer by profession, he became known outside of academic circles for his high-speed photography. Among Harold Edgertons’ most famous photos are fast motion sequences such as bullets in mid-air or sequences of nuclear explosions. As an electrical engineer, he invented the electric stroboscope and the Rapatronic camera. If you ...

Review: Sigma 35mm f1.4 Art

When I wrote my review on the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 Art, I wouldn’t have thought I’d test and buy yet another normal focal length so soon. I assumed that I’d be able to sit out the G.A.S attacks…but I guess I was wrong. 😉 I mean, the 30mm Art was and still is a very ...

Another New Toy: Sigma 35mm f1.4 Art

Recently, after a bad attack of G.A.S., I was itching so badly I had no choice but to order the 35/1.4 Art. As Gear Acquisition Syndrome is notoriously not curable, you can’t do anything but learn to live with it. Well, since the lens has arrived, the itching is gone and the pleasure is great. ...

Swans and Dogs

Here, high contrast is not desirable. But if I want to take photos of animals, I usually wait until the sun shows up, so that the colors ...

At that time, I thought it was unlikely for Sigma to commit itself to a smaller sensor-format with a potential MILC. Only Nikon 1 system cameras (that are equipped with a ...

A little Bit of Everything

Lately, I only took my compact cameras with me, the DP2M and the DP3M. As chance would have it, very different subjects popped up in front of my camera. Everything from dogs and cats, to macros with the Marumi achromatic lens and light effects to high-ISO-shots is included. As it currently looks light-wise, I will ...

Sigma-News: 24-105mm and much more!

When I reported about the 24-105mm f/4 two weeks ago, I nourished hope that Sigma would present this and many more lenses at the PhotoPlus Expo. But things turned out differently. Sigma officially presented the lens even before the exhibition, at a RRP of €999 and available at the beginning of November. Instead of further ...

My most-viewed Photos

Time flies so incredibly fast. It is almost a year ago that I immigrated to Serbia, but it feels as if it was only yesterday. Not only did I make many new friends, learn a new language (more or less well 😉 ) adapt to a new profession, environment and culture during this time, but ...
