Hi, I have three questions, and I hope you'll can teach me : 1 - how to realize this kind of photography (Hoffer's) : Only using the backlight and wide aperture ? How to drive the reflections and from where and what ? Using an object, glasses or not ? Is it just the reflection of the light on the lens (directly or from a surface? ) ? And this one  : Just the ligth through the grass ? 2nd question : More the focal length is big, better is the bokeh, but how is the bokeh from a Full Frame...

Sorry, this is going to be a long one... My wife and I have been doing Wedding Videography for a few years now and this year we would like to do photography as well. I've been a second shooter before (using Canon). My wife has done many family/child sessions and this year we will have a couple of paid photography events. Our current gear (I have lots more but selling the rest) includes the following: Sony A7S Panasonic GH4 Panasonic 12-35 2.8 Panasonic/Leica 25mm 1.4 Metabones Nikon to m43...

I am considering an X Vario for a walk around/landscape camera. I enjoy using an arca swiss tripod head. Any l brackets or bottom plates that fit appropriately. I found it interesting the RRS didn't have one for this camera (or the X1/X2). Thanks. --Joe - Southeastern PA

Hi guys, In May I will be in Portugal for a week and I really really want to see some wildlife. I am drawn to spiders, horses and birds of prey but of course any wildlife will make my week such a great adventure, I'm sure. There are many more animals I would love to see (i.e almost all African) but haven't had a chance yet. So if you know any places I should go to observe and photograph, please write some down. Will carry D700, 300mm, x1.4 and 105mm macro. Thanks a lot, Ran

I hit the magnification loop button twice to get into the magnified frame view mode with E-PL5. If I half-press the trigger button, before of auto-focusing, the E-PL5 switched back to normal non-magnified view, so it looks like that the AF is not available in the magnified frame view. This is different from what I see with my E-PM1 and E-M10 which can auto-focus while zoomed into the magnified frame. This is greatly improves accuracy with pinpoint x14 magnified zoomed AF box.  Are there...

I have been so used to using my lenses either wide open, or stopped down x1 1 1/2 stops. Doing landscapes, I obviously want more in focus than I would, say a portrait, so a smaller aperture like f/16-22 would be required. How do I get the right "focal point" to get as much as possible in focus? is this where using the hyperfocal distance comes in? If so, how does it work. Hope you can help.  --lee uk.There are old pilots, & there are bold pilots, but there are no old bold pilots."I'm so...

So as an X1 -> X2 upgrader, while I still like the shooting experience of the Leica X 113 I'm feeling more and more it's redundant in my lineup. The X1 and 2 made sense as a fixed-lens compact: They could be slipped into a soft briefcase or at a pinch in a coat pocket that I didn't mind ruining the lines of. The X 113 on the other hand is basically the size of an M with a regular lens on it, it can only really go places that an M can. And while I still like the handling and it allows me to...

trying to find out if I can tell the mfg date of a Leica X1 by the serial number--I think it is on the lens..I have been looking for a good used X1, buy don't want a 5 year old one, too expensive to have work done when it goes bad.

Hey all! I'll begin a trip to Europe March next year and would like to know which camera should I choose down to 350 bucks. I've seen some Pana LF1, Canon S110, Olympus ZX2, Fuji X1, but I can't make my mind on those... I would need a rugged camera that could provide me the best possible pictures, either at landscapes and at night, since I'll be camping most of the time. Another point is that I'll be cycle touring, meaning that space is a important mather, so I've discarded bridge and super...

At present I have a 40D and 70D with 18-135 STM/50 1.8/85 1.8/70-200L 2.8 (non IS), with Lightroom 5, I mainly shoot sport/basketball as a hobby. Photos are used on local club/league web sites. In the last 6-8 months I have started to take a keen interest in wildlife photography, mammals and birds mainly. I would like to expand into this area, the main issue is reach of lens (far too much cropping) the options I am looking at are: Canon 300mm 2.8L IS Mk2 with x1.4 and x2 Extenders. 1DX and...
