What is Nikon Thinking? D300S, D7100, D610, D...

With the release of the D750, I’m starting to wonder what Nikon is thinking with their lineup.  Shooters I know are waiting for a true replacement for both the D300s and the D700.  Arguments can be made that the D7100 replaces the D300s, and the D750 replaces the D700.  However, an equal number (and maybe more) arguments can be made that no replacements exist.  In this post, I’ll quickly cover some of the specs that differentiate the cameras that are current in the lineup.  Nikon has a lot of bodies on their site but I wouldn’t consider many of them current (D90, really?).  Here, I’ll just look at the D300s, D7100,...

Expert Shield vs GGS Screen Protector for Nik...

  I’m giving away two Expert Shield screen protectors. Draw will take place on September 19, 2014. No stings, no BS. I have an extra Sony RX100 model and the D800 anti-glare model.   All you have to do is comment on this post with which model you want, add a valid email address (which won’t be visible to anyone but me). Winners will be announced here and I’ll contact you for a shipping address. Good luck!     Update: I only had entries for the D800 model, and the winner is Peter Looper!  I might run another draw for the RX100 model at another time.     Some time ago I posted about my issues...

Slow Road to Squamish: Long Exposures on the ...

A couple of weeks ago my friend Eli and I did a photohunting trip from Vancouver to Squamish.  The goal was to capture some long exposure shots along the way, below are some of the results.  Eli’s Gitzo tripod was conveniently lost by WestJet, and a loaner fell through at the last minute.  A stop at the Salvation Army saved the day though as he was able to pick up a “pro quality” tripod for $9!       First stop was the Lions Gate Bridge.  Not a great day for long exposures as it was mostly clear skies.  We gave it a shot though.   A shot with my iPhone 5S first. The resulting long exposure shot with my...

Cypress Mountain Snowshoeing

On the first day of spring, I had the chance to hit the snowshoe trails at Cypress Mountain.  Despite some initial clouds and light snow, it turned out to be a beautiful day on the mountain.  Here are a few photos from the day, apologies for the lack of information but I don’t have a lot of time for a write up :)           Fondue time at Hollyburn Lodge.  Food was great and our guides made the day!               On the way down the mountain, we stopped the lookout and were treated to a beautiful...

Cropped for Pinterest

This idea came from Trey Ratcliff, who cropped some of his images for an interesting display board on Pinterest.  I decided to do the same thing, cropping the images into long and thin slivers.  The full images are posted on this site, some in the gallery and some just in various blog posts....

The Best of 2013: Posts & Photos Dec24

The Best of 2013: Posts & Photos

Now that the holiday season is upon us, it’s time for another best of post.  2013 was a huge year for me, the biggest year of my life.  I started a new job working for a copper mining company with headquarters in my homeland: Poland.  I never thought that my native language would help me land a job in Canada, but here I am.  That pales in comparison to the biggest change in my life, I became a dad to twins!  Marek and June were born in the summer and are now approaching six months of age.   Things have not been the same since.  I obviously have less time to take photos and post on the blog, but I fill my time with the laughs from two...

A Trip to Chile Dec15

A Trip to Chile

I visited Chile in May 2013, so this post is LONG overdue.  In my defense though, two cute babies arrived and those little things take up all of my time :)  So after months of inactivity, here are a few photos from the trip. I landed in Santiago and had a day to explore the city with my colleague Jamie.  We decided to go for a walk without having a destination in mind. and as we left the hotel the sun was reflecting off the large tower.  Sadly, I think the effect is visible due to air pollution.   We walked along the canal, and came across several interesting sights. We saw a large statue at the top of a hill and decided that was a...
