Black Friday

Especially in the months after the Photokina we can’t always anticipate new lenses, cameras or updates to be released. After a series of new products the photo industry, of course, won’t rest, but there haven’t been a lot of new publications for a while. Maybe now is a good time to focus on one’s technique ...

New firmware for Sigma sd Quattro and first review of the 60-600mm

Since Photokina the mysterious Sigma camera with full frame Foveon sensor and L-mount is on everyone’s lips to be sure, but for owners of Sigma gear it is more important that software of their cameras and lenses is kept up to date and that there are timely releases of new firmware versions, whenever there are ...

City of superlatives

New York – hardly any other city in the world has become part of so many dreams as this one. Hardly any other city provides so many possibilities and impressions in a closed area. Hardly any other city is the setting for so many movies and series. Every one of us who has or hasn’t ...

NEWS – Where do our lenses come from?

Have you ever been wondering where the lenses in our camera bags are actually produced? I have, and that’s why I’ve started to do some research about where SIGMA products are being manufactured.

Halloween in the Big Apple

We all know that in the States Halloween is a much bigger affair than in Europe. Whereas only small groups of kids stroll around suburban areas in zombie or witch outfits, hunting for treats, and in the cities youngsters make an exception and dress up for a beer on Friday night, America goes crazy!

What is better, SFD or a stack made of multiple photos?

In the following comparison we are going to determine which one looks best: SFD, ...

Where this journey took me…

Hey guys, In one of my last articles, in which I told you my thoughts about the SIGMA 85mm F.14 DG HSM Art, you could also see some sample images which apparently hadn’t been taken in our area. So far, however, I haven’t told you where that journey took me. I wanted to wait until ...

A future partnership for SIGMA

It’s Photokina Week and of course it was evident to us that we can certainly look forward to some news. But instead of talking about new lenses the world of photography speaks about an exciting new partnership that will be made. Sigma is going to launch a strategic partnership with the companies Leica Camera and ...

REVIEW SIGMA 85mm F1.4 DG HSM Art

You’ve certainly noticed that I’m a big fan of Sigma’s Art series! My all-round lens, which I don’t want to miss, is the SIGMA 24-70mm F2.8 DG OS HSM | Art. But also the classical lens, a normal focal length for full-frame cameras, the 50mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art, has become a faithful companion that never lets me ...
